Why should I work with a car accident attorney?

If you were hurt or a family member was killed in a car accident that may have been caused by the negligence of another driver, the experienced Louisville car accident lawyers at the Karl Truman Law Office can help ensure that you are able to recover the financial compensation you need and justice you deserve. Our lawyers understand that insurance company settlement offers are often unfair and inadequate for your needs. In the event that litigation becomes necessary, our attorneys have the courtroom experience to guide you through the legal process while allowing you to focus on healing.

Should I undergo a medical evaluation after a car accident even if I don't feel hurt?

Yes. The symptoms of many car accident injuries, including severe injuries such as brain injuries, are not immediately obvious in the aftermath of a collision, when your adrenaline is elevated.

What are the leading causes of car accidents?

Car accidents are most often the result of driver negligence, although other factors such as defective automobiles or faulty car parts can also contribute to car accidents. Common causes of car accidents include:

  • Driver distraction, such as texting or cell phone use
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Reckless driving, such as tailgating or unsignaled lane changes

What damages can I seek compensation for if I am injured in a car accident?

If you suffered harm in a car accident caused by another's negligence, you may be able to recover money for medical costs, vehicle repair or replacement, lost income, pain and suffering, and other related damages.

What are some of the most common car accident injuries?

Car accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, from the relatively minor such as whiplash and broken bones, to catastrophic harm such as brain injuries and spinal cord injuries that may necessitate long-term medical care.
