Accidents involving commercial trucks can make you feel like the underdog. You’re injured by a large vehicle and then must fight a large company for compensation.
Fortunately, our Bardstown truck accident lawyers can handle big rig crashes and big rig company representatives—all without charging a cent unless we win.
Get Compensation to Right a Wrong
You should not have to pay for injuries caused by someone else. This is the underlying principle of personal injury cases—the responsible party should pay for the consequences of their actions. That could include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost income
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
More than just your initial hospital bills, compensation can encompass the damage to your personal life, career, hobbies, and mental health. We work closely with you, your doctors, and other experts to gain a thorough understanding of what this cost you. Then, we fight for those losses to be recognized.
Compensation to Match Your Struggles
Truck crashes put vehicle occupants at increased risk for serious injuries. Crushing injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries could all result. In fact, vehicle crashes are the leading cause of the latter, according to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC).
These injuries and their long-term consequences are worth more than just a few reimbursed medical bills. Depending on your prognosis, damages could cover:
- At-home care
- Home and car modifications
- Medical equipment
- Long-term prescriptions
- Mental health support
- Alternative therapies
Pain management as well as emotional and psychological support are also crucial parts of your recovery. For instance, Mayo Clinic lists “coping and support” as part of the recovery process for burns, recommending support groups. Whatever resources you need to cope with your injuries can be covered by damages. At Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers, we work for the outcome of your case to mirror your ordeal.
Compensation to Get You Back to Work (Or Navigate Without It)
Spending a few days in the hospital and weeks in rehabilitation won’t just cost you in bills; it will also cost time off work. Fortunately, compensation covers career losses as well as medical ones.
Depending on your injuries’ severity, you could qualify for:
- Occupational therapy
- Job retraining
- Career changes
- Reduced earning ability
Some collisions leave victims permanently unable to work. Others make it impossible to return to a job at the same level. If this happened to you in Bardstown, our attorneys can consult economists to understand your lifetime losses and work to obtain that from the negligent party.

Kentucky Insurance Laws and Serious Injuries
Under Kentucky’s no-fault insurance laws, you typically file a claim through your own policy to receive basic benefits, regardless of fault. However, you can pursue another party if the crash caused serious injuries or over $1,000 in medical bills (Ky. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 304.39-060(b)). Since semi-truck crashes often cause serious injuries, you may have the option of filing a claim with the truck driver’s or their company’s insurance.
You may also pursue a personal injury lawsuit but must prove fault. Our truck accident lawyers can explore any avenue for compensation, as well as gather evidence to demonstrate how a Bardstown driver’s negligence led to your injuries.
Moreover, whether you need help with an insurance claim or a lawsuit, we offer support, including with:
- Talking to insurance adjusters and trucking company representatives
- Interviewing witnesses and experts to provide testimony
- Reviewing settlement offers and negotiating terms
- Fighting against denied or undervalued claims
- Compiling documentation of serious injuries to pursue the other party
- Filing lawsuit paperwork and explaining legal terms to you
Even if you aren’t sure yet whether you need to file a claim or a lawsuit, the team at Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers can help.

Receive Clarity Through Our Investigation
Our team can untangle liability by using:
- Witness statements
- Accident reconstruction
- Debris analysis
- Expert testimony
- Police reports
- Medical records
- Driver history
Evidence is tailored to each case. For example, we may use blood tests to demonstrate substance abuse played a role. We can also investigate previous violations, complaints, or accidents by the driver or trucking company to illustrate a pattern of negligent behavior.
Identifying Who Can Be Held Accountable
The driver who hit you may not be the party held responsible. In examining the evidence, we investigate who should be liable. That could include:
- Truck drivers
- Trucking companies
- Other drivers
- Maintenance shops
- Auto part manufacturers
- Vehicle designers
- Government entities
The truck driver’s company may be responsible for their employees’ actions. Defective parts, bad auto design, or maintenance errors can lay fault at the feet of another party. Even the road itself can point to poor maintenance and leave a city or state liable. Your accident could be a combination of several negligent acts.
While all parties may point fingers at each other, we use data from our investigation to identify the negligent party and the choices that caused you pain.
