Fort Campbell Truck Accident Lawyer
Representing Truck Accident Victims in Western Kentucky
Accidents involving cars and heavy trucks often result in serious injuries and fatalities. These cases also involve highly contested insurance issues when it comes to compensating the victims.
I am Kenneth Haggard, a personal injury lawyer in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. If you have been injured or had a family member injured or killed in a truck accident in western Kentucky or western Tennessee, I offer a free initial consultation to explain the law and let you know what you can expect.
Insurance Coverage in Truck Accident Cases
Trucking companies are required by law to carry large insurance policies – usually $1 million or more. However, insurance companies will not pay large personal injury or wrongful death claims without a fight.
The insurance company will be on the case shortly after the accident and will do everything it can to blame you for the accident. To protect your right to full compensation, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
Preserving the Evidence
Preserving evidence such as the driver logbook and the truck’s black box is extremely important in accidents involving large tractor-trailers. As your lawyer, I will conduct a thorough investigation to uncover evidence that could point to negligence on the part of the truck driver and trucking company, such as driving too long without taking a rest break and other violations of Department of Transportation (DOT) safety regulations.
Free Attorney Consultation
In any personal injury or wrongful death claim, anything you say to the other side or their insurance company can be used against you. That’s why you should never make a statement until you have spoken with a lawyer. I always offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights.
