Kentucky Truck Accident Lawyer
In 2013, there were over 8,000 accidents in Kentucky involving commercial trucks, over 1,300 resulting in injuries and 74 resulting in fatalities. Commercial truck drivers are generally both trained and experienced and it is not always the driver’s negligence that leads to accidents. Some of those 8,000 accidents were caused by unsecure loads, tire failure, defective brakes, oversized loads, defective tow hitches leading to separation of units, steering failures, and other issues. Regardless of the circumstances causing the accident, accidents involving commercial trucks are generally more injurious and fatal than those involving only passenger cars and therefor both property and injury claims of the injured are much higher in value.
