Truck Accidents in Kentucky
Motor vehicle collisions involving trucks, cars, SUVs, pedestrians, and other vehicles leave more than 7,000 people injured throughout the state of Kentucky every year. Victims who are involved in accidents are often left with serious injuries. In many cases, people harmed in accidents are required to undergo emergency medical care.
Thousands of victims have to spend time off work to recover and go through months of therapy and rehabilitation. Not only are injured victims forced to deal with an array of mental and physical consequences, but their families are often left to endure overwhelming finical consequences as well.
Although most people are careful as they travel along roadways in Louisville and throughout Jefferson County, we continue to see victims harmed in crashes due to driver error. Some of the most common contributing factors in truck accidents throughout our state include:
- Violations of federal regulations
- Improper cargo loading
- Truck equipment failures
- Substance abuse
- Driving while drowsy
Victims who are hurt in truck accidents that take place as a result of another drivers’ actions should contact a truck accident attorney in Louisville as soon as possible to protect their legal rights.
