The Kentucky Department of Transportation reports that 1,411 motorcycles were involved in all motor vehicle accidents in 2020. While this represents less than 1% of all vehicles, motorcycles were involved in 7% of all fatal vehicle collisions. Driver distraction, not yielding the right-of-way, and not keeping the vehicle under proper control were leading causes of motorcycle crashes in 2020.
Dog bites can cause serious physical and psychological injuries. If a dog owner or handler was negligent in maintaining control over their dog, you might consider seeking compensation through a personal injury claim.
Many people love ATV riding in Kentucky. However, this activity can be dangerous when an inexperienced driver gets behind the wheel. The Kentucky Department of Transportation reports that there were 53 ATV accidents in 2020. 7 of these were fatal, and 35 resulted in injury.
Premises liability refers to the laws that dictate how Kentucky property owners must maintain their properties. If they fail to maintain them in a safe condition so that visitors are not injured, accident victims can seek compensation for their injuries. Our team can guide you through the process of filing a premises liability claim.
The Kentucky Department of Workers’ Claims is responsible for administering the state’s workers’ compensation program. If you were injured at work, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, including payment for medical services and partial wage replacement income. Additionally, our Morehead personal injury lawyers can review your case to determine if a third party like a contractor or manufacturer may be partially liable for your injuries.
There are many factors to consider when evaluating an injury claim. The most obvious of these variables is: How bad were you hurt? A person with more medical bills after an accident and who undergoes more treatment will often receive more compensation than someone who has very little medical treatment and medical bills. Of course, whether you were employed and if you missed time from work is another big factor. The victim’s age, their hobbies, where a car wreck occurred, and how the collision report is written can all weigh in on what type of personal injury settlement you may recover. Punitive damages may also be awarded to punish reckless or grossly negligent behavior from semi-truck accidents or drunk driver car wrecks.
If you have ever been rear-ended at a stop light, or hit by a driver who was texting or looking at their phone while driving, you have likely experienced negligence. In Kentucky, much of negligence law revolves around whether or not another person or driver behaved reasonably. All people have a duty to act reasonably careful and not cause harm to others. Of course, sometimes the most simple mistakes are the result of negligence.
Interestingly, Kentucky’s personal injury law is somewhat different than in other states. Here, we have what is called Pure Comparative Negligence. This is often seen when two drivers are both at fault. If Driver One is speeding and Driver Two runs a stop sign, and they both crash into one another, who will win the case? This is a complicated answer, but potentially, their settlement recovery may be split 50/50 if it was decided that both drivers were at fault. This liability result could also be split 25/75 or even 90/10.
Negligence can come in almost any form. Whether it is in a car crash, motorcycle wreck, or even a doctor’s negligence- our law firm is here to help. If you have been hurt by someone else’s negligence, call our accident team today for a free case evaluation.
Our Morehead personal injury law firm has years of experience with handling injuries that occur on college campuses and while attending parties. One of the most prominent aspects of Rowan County and the city of Morehead is Morehead State University. During the college year and in the summer, it is common for students and young people to participate in house parties and fraternity and sorority parties. As well, college campuses are known to be popular not only to students at MSU, but also to students at other colleges such as UK and EKU who come to visit.
Unfortunately, when any of these parties take place there is always a risk for injury. This risk is magnified due to the large crowds that gather and alcohol consumption. What makes these accidents worse is the negligent planning and failure to take proper steps in making sure the invited guests are safe at the fraternity party or house party.
