At this time, the LMPD’s traffic unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding the collision.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the victim who lost their life in this accident. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
Fatal Truck Accidents in Kentucky
Auto accidents throughout the state of Kentucky claim the lives of more than 720 victims each year. A fair share of these accidents involve semi-trucks. The size of these massive vehicles drastically increases the chances of catastrophic and fatal injuries during collisions. This is particularly true for victims who are inside smaller vehicles during their accidents. Although we wish that all victims recover from their accidents, this is not always the case. Instead, numerous people are tragically taken away as a result of another person’s negligence.
Families of those killed are often left to endure overwhelming mental, emotional, and financial consequences that can have a debilitating impact on their lives. Rather than move ahead after losing a loved one in an unexpected accident, families should seek legal guidance from a reputable and knowledgeable legal team in Louisville as soon as possible. They may have legal options available to help them move forward and obtain compensation to cover both economic and non-economic damages they face. When people lose their lives in accidents, due to the negligent actions of other motorists, it is crucial that their families contact a wrongful death attorney in Kentucky to explore legal options available to them.
