The rules of mass and energy mean the odds in an accident between your 3,500-pound car and an 80,000-pound tractor-trailer is not in your favor. As the driver or passenger in the smaller vehicle, you are hundreds of times more likely to suffer the greatest damage and the most serious injuries. The corresponding financial math is equally astounding: The severe injuries associated with a crash involving a large truck may cost millions over a lifetime and include multiple surgeries, years of therapy and lost wages and earning capacity.
As truck accident attorneys, with more than 40 years of experience, we at the Franklin Law Group in Louisville have seen the devastating injuries, the emotional turmoil and the hardship to families that truck accidents cause. By understanding the complex laws and federal regulations that apply in semi-truck accidents, we have successfully recovered millions of dollars for clients in Louisville-Jefferson County and throughout Kentucky.
The size disparity between trucks and passenger vehicles, and particularly motorcycles, means that truck accidents cause the most serious injuries. Proving your claim in a truck, semi, or eighteen-wheeler accident is critical to helping you recover the damages you and your family will need. We have helped people who suffered the most catastrophic injuries, including:
Traumatic brain injuries
Serious chemical and thermal burns
Damage to internal organs
In order to maximize your compensation, we look to all parties who may be liable, including the truck driver, the truck company or truck owner, the maintenance and service providers, truck and truck components manufacturers, even the owners of the freight. Because interstate trucking is subject to federal laws, we check the truck driver’s log to see whether he or she complied with regulations and we examine maintenance records. We also work with accident reconstructionists, experts who provide an analysis of how an accident occurred.
If you or someone you care about has been injured in a truck accident, get legal help as soon as possible. Truck drivers are generally instructed to call their companies immediately when they are involved in an accident — and the companies immediately send their own representatives, adjusters and reconstructionists to the scene. The sooner you call us to advocate for you, the sooner we can gather evidence to support your claim.
