You often read in the news about drivers in Kentucky and elsewhere who lose control of their cars and crash. You never thought you’d be the victim of such an event, yet here you are. Car accidents caused by out-of-control drivers can leave victims suffering in a number of ways. Did you know you may be able to seek compensation for your losses?
It doesn’t matter if you were a pedestrian struck by a car, the driver or passenger of another vehicle struck by the out-of-control car, or the passenger in the automobile that went out of control; if you’ve suffered injuries, you may have legal recourse. According to state laws, negligent drivers may be held accountable. This may leave you wondering what you have to do to seek compensation.
If you wish to pursue relief through legal means, it will require that you file a personal injury claim in civil court. Just because you file the claim does not mean that your case will go to court, but it is a possibility. Many personal injury cases like this are actually settled through out-of-court negotiations. If your negotiations fail, it may serve your best interests to let a judge hear your case.
Too many Kentucky residents fall victim to negligent drivers every year. An out-of-control driver would meet the definition of a negligent driver. If you were hurt in an accident with a driver who failed to maintain control of his or her vehicle, legal counsel can help you seek the relief you need.
