Liability in a Kentucky Truck Accident

When you’re severely injured or a loved one is killed in a commercial trucking accident in Kentucky, correctly establishing liability is crucial for the success of your case. Since Kentucky injury law follows a pure comparative negligence system, assigning fault incorrectly can significantly reduce your payout. If you are determined to be 40% at fault for the crash, for example, you may only be able to recover money to pay for 60% of your losses.

Because large truck crashes often result in significant property damage, severe injuries, and even death, your expenses can add up quickly. It’s important to recover full compensation for from all responsible parties. Entities that may be responsible for your injuries include trucking companies, negligent drivers, those who are responsible for truck maintenance, equipment manufacturers, loaders, and even those who design or maintain the roads. When multiple parties cause a truck crash, contributory negligence is established and payouts are typically made accordingly.

Recovering Compensation After an 18-Wheeler Accident

The injuries that result from 18-wheeler crashes are almost always life-changing. Most of the time, it is the drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles who are hurt. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord injuries, severe burns, amputations, and internal organ damage from large truck accidents are not uncommon. In many cases, victims don’t survive. For those that do make it, the financial burdens can quickly become astronomical. For the family members of those who are killed, dealing with stacks of bills and the loss of income can almost be too much to bear.

If you were injured in a crash with a big rig, you can recover money to help alleviate some of your financial burdens. No amount of financial recovery can erase the trauma after a crash. However, holding responsible parties accountable for their negligence can help victims get back on their feet.

In Kentucky, people who are harmed by truck crashes may be able to recover money for:

  • Lost income and lost future earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering, including money for emotional trauma
  • Medical treatment, supplies, and equipment
  • Loss of life
  • Punitive damages
