You and your spouse finally have a free afternoon to share with each other and do something relaxing. You decide to spend the afternoon at the Elizabethtown Nature Park and then enjoy a small picnic dinner by Freeman Lake. You were finally able to wind down a little and enjoy some time with your spouse.
As you start heading home up North Dixie Highway, any stress relief you had experienced during the afternoon comes flooding back as you are hit by another vehicle. When you finally come to your senses and check to see if you and your spouse are okay, you are surprised to see that no other damaged vehicles are around you. Someone has hit you and then fled the scene. Unfortunately, scenarios like this play out on Kentucky roads on a regular basis.
We cover accidents in Elizabethtown
A person may be subject to both civil and criminal penalties when they hit a vehicle, motorcycle, or pedestrian and then keep going. If you have been hit by someone who has fled the scene of an accident, you have the right to seek compensation. This compensation would cover damage done to your vehicle, medical bills, lost work, and much more. However, we have seen time and again that finding the hit and run driver can be difficult.
Here at T.J. Smith, we take aggressive action in order to uphold the rights of individuals who are injured throughout the state of Kentucky, including individuals who have been the victim of a hit and run accident. In addition to causing much damage and injuries, it can become even more stressful for an individual who has been the victim of a hit and run accident to realize that the responsible party did not even care enough to see if you and your family were all right. We make it our goal to hold these negligent individuals responsible for their actions.
Injured? We can help.
Car accidents cause serious injuries and sometimes fatalities. It has been estimated that around 12,000 people are affected by spinal cord injuries as a result of car accidents. Sadly, this number does not even include the individuals who have died as a result of spinal cord injuries. In addition to getting immediate medical care, individuals who experience a serious injury, like a spinal cord injury, have to deal with a lifetime of medical bills. It is been estimated that someone who deals with paraplegia may spend more than 2 1/2 million dollars on medical care if they are the victim of an accident when they are in their 20's.
Individuals who have sustained a serious injury after a car accident deserve to get help. We will work hard in order to make sure that all of the ongoing costs of care and the time off work that you experience are fully compensated. When you work with an Elizabethtown attorney, you can be sure that we will be there to support you as you face uncertainties in the future and head down a long road to recovery.
How to make sense of your insurance policy
Each individual's car insurance policy is different. Depending on the one you hold, it may be possible for you to get compensation from your own insurance company if the negligent driver who hit you cannot be found. Some policies will allow an individual who has been the victim of a hit-and-run accident to get compensation no matter the situation. Other policies will not provide that compensation if the one who caused the accident cannot be found and identified.
When you work with an Elizabethtown attorney, you can be sure that our entire legal team will work with you through your entire case. We will use a variety of means to help you get compensation, even working with your insurance company. We work with a variety of professionals to help get our job done and develop cases. Our track record speaks for itself. We have had success at recovering more than $2 million for individuals who have been accident victims in this state.
