What To Know About Commercial Accident

Motor vehicle crashes involving commercial vehicles such as semi trucks often cause life-altering injuries. You may have expensive medical bills and other costly damages. Some forms of compensation we may be able to recover for you include:

  • Medical expenses for current and future treatment
  • Loss of wages and earning capacity
  • Repair or replacement costs for your vehicle
  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages, if applicable

In Kentucky, it’s crucial to remember that the statute of limitations for an accident claim is typically two years from the date of the accident. Timing is essential, and we encourage you to act promptly.

Simplifying The Complex Nature Of Liability

Determining who is at fault in a commercial vehicle accident is an immensely complex task. There could be multiple parties responsible, including:

  • The commercial vehicle driver
  • The company that employs the at-fault driver
  • The maintenance company that last worked on the at-fault vehicle
  • The manufacturer of the at-fault vehicle or one of its parts
  • A local municipality responsible for road conditions
  • A third-party driver who contributed to the accident

Our lawyers are well-versed in untangling these complexities to build a strong case on your behalf.
