On behalf of Musselwhite, Meinhart & Staples posted in car accidents on Friday, July 6, 2018.
While going about your day, just like any other day, driving your car to work and all of a sudden your vehicle is forced off the road and you land in a ditch. You were hurt, confused and trapped. It turns out, your vehicle was struck by another car whose driver was speeding and weaving between cars. When reckless drivers cause car accidents, according to the state of Kentucky their victims may have legal recourse.
After being freed from your vehicle, you were transported to an area hospital where you spent quite some time receiving treatment and recovering from your injuries. Even though you have since been released, the road to recovery is expected to be a long one with no guarantees that your life will ever return to the normal you were used to. Medical bills are piling up, your cash flow is down from not being able to work and you are physically, financially and emotionally strapped. What can you do?
When in this type of situation, it can be really tempting to take the first settlement offer provided by the responsible party’s insurance provider. Before you do, it is okay to seek guidance from a personal injury lawyer on the matter. You do not want to walk away with less than you deserve.
The damages victims sustain following car accidents can be substantial. Insurance will be looking to pay out as little as possible, meaning you may not receive enough to cover your losses. With the assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer, you can fight for fair and full compensation by filing claims in a Kentucky civil court or by negotiating the matter privately.
