The weekend is here and you are eager to head to Louisville for the Wildcats game. This is your first chance to see a basketball game live in years so you are excited to get on the road. Unfortunately, about one minute after you merge onto I-64 heading east, a distracted truck driver sideswipes your car and knocks you off the highway.

Your car is totaled and you suffer some major injuries. You life has been disrupted in a big way through someone else’s negligence. You need medical attention, and an experienced attorney so you can recover from the injuries, the lost income, and the emotional trauma.

Unfortunately, distracted and drowsy truck drivers cause too many accidents on Kentucky roads. If you are injured in one of those accidents, you need an experienced truck accident attorney on your side. You also want someone who is familiar with the nuances of trucking laws and regulations; these are not auto accident cases. The rules of evidence and the different regulations mean that litigation has to proceed differently.

Dealing with insurance and trucking companies in Shelbyville

The trucking company does not have your interests in mind, at all. We know what the trucking company and their insurance company are likely to do when faced with a lawsuit. Before you even get out of the hospital, their attorneys will be working to either get a quick settlement or pressure you into signing documents that might help them duck some or all of their financial responsibility. Never sign anything without having an attorney review it first.

The trucking company only cares about getting you to cost them as little money as possible. While they try to get a favorable settlement they will also be looking for evidence to support their case, that they are not at fault and getting biased witness accounts to undermine your version of what happened. While they work against you, you need an expert working for you.
