Louisville, Kentucky Truck Accident Lawyer and Attorney at Law

According to statistics from the U.S. Department of Transportation, accidents involving large trucks accounted for 8 percent of all fatal motor vehicle accidents in 2004. Approximately 324,000 large truck accidents result in only property damage, approximately 87,000 resulted in bodily injury, and 4,862 proved fatal. Wes Faulkner, Louisville, Kentucky truck accident lawyer and attorney at law, has 20 years of experience handling large truck accident litigation and can help you recover damages for serious injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one.

Large trucks can prove potentially dangerous to other motorists on the road. Given a truck’s size and lack of maneuverability, it takes much longer for a large truck to stop or to swerve in order to avoid a collision. Large trucks also have larger blind spots than other motor vehicles, which poses additional risks for drivers who go undetected by truck drivers as a truck is merging or turning. If a large truck is towing a trailer or hauling other objects, there is also a risk that the truck’s load will come loose, possibly injuring nearby motorists.

Those injured in a large truck accident in or around Louisville, Kentucky should speak with truck accident lawyer and attorney at law Wes Faulkner. Mr. Faulkner can help determine if you have a legitimate truck accident claim against a truck driver or perhaps the trucking company. He will take the appropriate legal actions to ensure your best interests are represented in court.

Truck Accident Statute of Limitations

It is important to file a truck accident case as soon as possible. The statute of limitations for truck accident cases as outlined in Kentucky law states that an action must be filed within one year of the date of the accident or two years from the date of last payment of medical expenses. If the statute of limitations has expired, you will not be able to pursue a truck accident claim regardless of the details of your case.
