Trucking accidents are a relatively common occurrence in Kentucky. The sheer weight differential between automobiles and commercial trucks, and trucks’ high center of gravity which make them prone to rolling over, will lead to significant property damage and injuries when an accident occurs. Trucking accidents happen for many reasons:

  • A truck driver is drunk or acts carelessly or negligently
  • If a trucking company fails to property maintain its vehicles and perform background checks on its drivers

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reports on the number of accidents and fatalities involving trucks. https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/safety/data-and-statistics/large-truck-and-bus-crash-facts

  • 415,000 crashes from large trucks in 2015
  • 3,598 fatality crashes from large trucks in 2015
  • 33,000 injury crashes from large trucks in 2015

 

 

Sharing the road with large trucks is dangerous, as these numbers suggest. Initiating a lawsuit in the context of a trucking accident is hazardous, at best. You are likely to lock horns with a trucking company-which is very different from going against an individual and their insurance company. This is why you need the help of a seasoned attorney. We can handle all communication with law enforcement, the trucking company, and any insurance companies involved. We may be able to assist you in bringing the responsible party to justice and recovering the money you need for medical bills, living expenses, and other financial, emotional or physical damages you may have suffered.

If you or a loved one is in need of legal assistance, call Goldberg Simpson. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your case, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds for our client. In many cases, a lawsuit must be filed before a specific date (statute of limitations). Please call right away to ensure you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
