Empathetic Louisville Car Accident Lawyers Fighting for Victim’s Rights
A serious car accident can leave you and your loved ones feeling anxious about what will happen next. The personal injury claim process can be intimidating and frustrating to those who aren’t experienced with it and can lead to unfairly denied claims, financial hardship, and emotional distress for victims.
The insurance company, unfortunately, is not on your side. They’re more interested in their bottom line than your wellbeing or paying you what’s right. That’s why hiring an experienced car accident attorney to guide you through the process and fight back against unfair treatment is so critical.
At Karl Truman Law, our team of experienced personal injury lawyers are ready and available to hold your insurance company accountable when you get hurt. We are here to teach you how the insurance claim process works, gather and analyze evidence, communicate with your insurance, and even file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf if you are wrongfully denied or given an unfair settlement.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident and are unsure where to turn, please call (502) 222-2222 for a free case evaluation in Louisville, Kentucky, or contact our office in Jeffersonville, Indiana, at (812) 282-8500 today.
Louisville Car Accident Attorneys Who Care
We understand that no two auto accident cases are exactly the same. All the circumstances, from the cause of the crash to the injuries you suffer, to the damages you have sustained, are unique to you.
This range of factors means that, if you want to truly know what your case is worth—and develop a legal strategy that gives you the best chance at maximizing your compensation—you need to speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer.
Possible compensation that may be available to you after your car accident includes:
- Medical bills, including emergency treatment, surgeries, and hospital stays
- Lost wages from the time you missed from work
- Loss of future earnings, based on what you stood to make if the accident hadn’t disrupted your career
- Costs associated with physical therapy, occupational rehabilitation, and other ongoing care
- Expenses you incur to modify your home or vehicle
- Pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Costs of property damage
If your loved one died in a car accident, our lawyers can pursue compensation via a wrongful death lawsuit on your family’s behalf. This money may not ease the pain of losing someone you love, but it can help address some of the economic and non-economic burdens family face after an unexpected death, including:
- Loss of wages
- Expenses for medical and palliative care your loved one received before passing
- Funeral, burial, and cremation costs
- Loss of companionship and guidance (loss of consortium)
Punitive damages may also be available in fatal and non-fatal motor vehicle accidents in cases where the crash was caused by extreme negligence or a willful intent to cause harm. Though rarely awarded, juries in Kentucky and Indiana have the option to award additional compensation in the form of punitive damages as a means of penalizing the at fault driver and preventing future wrongdoing.
Common Car Accident Injuries
As a leading cause of serious injury and death, car accidents can impact victims’ lives in many different ways. Although the injuries you suffer may vary, the effects can change your life long-term, or even forever.
Some of the most extreme car accident injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Whiplash and other neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Broken bones and other orthopedic injuries
- Damage to internal organs
- Amputation injuries
- Burn injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
Extensive medical treatment is often necessary for these injuries, and most require ongoing rehabilitation. As a result, the lifetime costs can be enormous.
If you were injured in a car wreck that wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to bear these medical expenses on your own. The attorneys and staff at the Karl Truman Law Office make it their mission to achieve the fair compensation you deserve for your car accident injuries. If you or a loved one have suffered injuries during a car crash and need legal representation, contact us today.
Serious Car Accidents Need Serious Results
Car accident cases may seem straightforward at first, but they can quickly become complicated. One of the biggest sources of frustration for victims is dealing with insurance companies, which tend to put up numerous roadblocks to achieving fair compensation.
When you hire the Karl Truman Law Office, you can count on us to investigate and build your case, and handle communications with the insurance company on your behalf. We always act in your best interest, and we will keep you informed on the status of negotiations with every development.
We know how insurance companies work, including their tactics to shift blame away from their insured to the victim in an accident. Our lawyers and staff prepare for these scenarios and know how to push back against these unfair practices with solid evidence. We will thoroughly review any materials you present to us, as well as the police report, accident reconstruction summaries we commission, and more.
Many car accident cases are resolved via settlement before they ever see the inside of a courtroom. However, if we cannot arrive at a settlement agreement that meets your needs, we are willing to fight on your side at trial.
