The difficulty of winning a Kentucky truck accident case is based on the circumstances of your unique case and may depend upon:
- How the accident happened
- The strength of evidence in favor of your case
- The willingness of liable parties to agree to a settlement
- Other factors that are specific to your case
The outcome of your case will largely depend on the severity of your accident-related injuries, the evidence that supports your claim, and negotiations with the liable trucking company’s insurance adjuster or defense attorneys.
Factors That Can Determine the Difficulty of a Truck Accident Case in Kentucky
It is important to know whether a truck accident case will be relatively difficult. This may determine our negotiation approach, our willingness to go to trial, and the settlement you should be willing to accept.
Several factors may determine the difficulty (or ease) of your case, including:
How Your Accident Happened
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) states that truck driver error is to blame for truck accidents in most cases. A truck driver could be liable for your accident.
Then again, some collisions are not so clear-cut. We will review your accident to answer questions, such as:
- Did the truck driver cause the collision?
- Were other factors such as weather or road conditions involved?
- What evidence of the at-fault party’s liability exists?
If the facts of your accident clearly show that a truck driver, defective truck part, or other party is at fault, then our attorney will name them in an insurance claim or lawsuit.
Many types of evidence can show that the truck driver, or someone else, is at fault, including:
- Data from the truck’s black box
- Video footage of the collision
- Witness accounts of your collision
- The testimony of an accident reconstruction expert
- Physical damage to your vehicle and the truck, which may help tell the story of your collision
Our team will conduct a thorough investigation of your accident. We may need to communicate with the trucking company to obtain certain evidence. Obtaining necessary evidence from trucking companies could be difficult without an attorney. We will make sure to acquire all evidence that will benefit your case.
Handling Liable Parties During Negotiations
Our attorneys offer more than 400 years of combined legal experience. We know how to negotiate with large companies and corporations for a fair settlement.
If the liable party’s insurance company refuses to settle, our team will present your case in court to a jury. We are passionate about our injury clients and will stop at nothing to ensure you receive the compensation you need to move forward.
How Well We Can Document Your Damages
When making your case, there are two central goals:
- To prove who is liable for your accident and losses
- To prove the damages resulting from your truck accident in Kentucky
Once we’ve completed the first step, we’ll present documentation of your damages. The more quality documentation we have, the clearer the value of your losses may be. Documentation of your damages may include:
- Invoices for medical care
- Doctors’ explanations of your injuries, and their projections for your recovery
- Invoices for the repair or replacement of your vehicle
- Mental health professionals’ assessments of your emotional and psychological injuries
- Proof of lost income, whether through past income statements or other means
The strength of documentation is a key part of any truck accident case.
