Car Accident There's No Substitute for Experience 

Louisville Car Accident Lawyer

Hundreds of Cases Tried, Millions Recovered for Clients

Car wrecks can change everything. From permanent disabilities to the tragic loss of life, their potential for devastating outcomes is a reminder that we all bear responsibility for the safety of others on our roads. Unfortunately, not everyone upholds their duty to safely operate a motor vehicle, ensure the safety of their products, or take reasonable steps to avoid preventable crashes.

If you or a loved one have been harmed in a wreck caused by another’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. At Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge, our award-winning lawyers can help you explore options for pursuing the justice and financial recovery you deserve.

Can I File a Car Accident Lawsuit?

Victims who suffer harm and losses as a result of auto accidents, or who lose loved ones to fatal wrecks, may have the right to take legal action in the form of a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. These civil claims allege crashes, injuries, and resulting damages were caused by the negligent or wrongful acts of another, such as:

  • Drugged or drunk driving
  • Driver distraction / texting while driving
  • Traffic violations (i.e. speeding, running a red light, failure to yield)
  • Regulatory violations (for commercial tractor-trailers and buses)
  • Defective products and auto parts (product liability)

The unique facts of your crash will determine whether you have cause for action, as well as who may be held liable for your damages – be it a negligent motorist, commercial driver or trucking company, product manufacturer, or government entity.

At KCB, we offer In-depth evaluations to help explore potential claims and liability, available insurance coverage, and your options for recovering needed compensation.

Should I Use a Car Accident Attorney for My Case?

You’re not required to have a lawyer when filing a car accident claim, but experience can make the difference when it matters most.

Like any civil injury case, car accident claims are critical to victims and families who depend on a successful resolution to cover their damages. They’re also aggressively defended against by powerful insurance companies that care more about profits than people, and can be rife with potential challenges – including disputed liability, uninsured / underinsured motorists, and more.

Statistics show, on average, that insurance payouts are 3.5x larger when accident victims work with legal representation. What’s more, a car accident lawyer can position you for a successful outcome by:

  • Conducting investigations and gathering evidence to prove fault and liability;
  • Handling communications and dealing with insurance companies on your behalf;
  • Coordinating with doctors and specialists regarding your medical records;
  • Documenting your medical care, expenses, and damages;
  • Collaborating with experts who can support claims about crashes or injuries;
  • Negotiating full and fair settlements, or litigating at trial when necessary.

How Much is My Car Accident Case Worth?

That’s a question with different answers for everyone. Car crashes are unique, and how they affect victims and families will always be different. The nature and severity of your injuries, your prognosis (likelihood of recovery or impairments you may be left with), and other losses arising from the crash are key factors in your case value.

Generally, recoverable damages in auto accident cases include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Costs associated with permanent disabilities, limitations, and future needs
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional injuries, including emotional suffering of close family members
  • Lost income and lost future wages
  • Property damage
