We regularly handle 18-wheeler accident claims for our clients. These claims can be very complicated due to the typically serious nature of the injuries to the parties involved, and also because the claims may involve parties from multiple states and multiple layers of insurance. If you or a loved one have been injured in a an accident due to the negligence of a commercial truck driver or company, it’s critical that you waste no time in hiring a Kentucky truck accident lawyer to defend your rights.
A serious semi-truck accident can require you to deal with many problems, and many layers of insurance, that you may never have known existed before you were injured. Many accident victims in Kentucky will have immediate problems with medical expenses, pain and suffering, inability to work and/or to carry on usual daily activities, damage to the car, and future needs.
The involvement of a big truck can complicate the matter, but it can also mean that there are many layers of insurance that could be involved, such as Kentucky No Fault insurance, uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage, coverage for the driver and owner of the truck and umbrella policies that create additional coverage for trucking companies in more serious accidents. In addition, some big truck accidents involve product liability issues, such as the crash-worthiness of the vehicle the injured party was travelling in.
Which claims you bring, when you bring them, what insurance or assets you tap into at a particular point in time, and how you tap into those assets, can have a drastic bearing on the ultimate results of your particular situation.
