In Kentucky, driver negligence is one of the major causes of car accidents. Whether the driver was texting while driving, or speeding, it’s not difficult for a crash to cause severe, if not life-threatening injuries for those involved. If you have been injured due to someone else’s actions or negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
At Clagett & Barnett, we specialize in representing victims. It is because we know how particularly devastating car accidents can be—not just on a person’s health, but on their finances—that we fight aggressively and incisively on behalf of our clients.
What are Common Types of Car Accident Injuries?
A car wreck can be a traumatic experience, both physically and emotionally. It can also be costly and time-consuming, resulting in numerous bills for car repair, medical treatment, and related costs. If you have been injured in a car accident, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries.
Our injury attorneys have represented clients who suffered the following types of injuries:
- Lacerations, fractures, and burns
- Traumatic brain injury
- Neck injuries
- Leg, knee and foot injuries
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Arm, shoulder and hand injuries
- Psychological trauma such as post-traumatic stress disorder
Any of these injuries can occur in a car accident and, depending on their severity, may require long hospital stays and intensive medical care, which can lead to the additional stress of lost wages. Additionally, factors like accidents involving multiple cars or uninsured motorists can make matters complex and cloud the assignment of accountability. That’s why having a proven Elizabethtown car accident attorney on your side that understands these hardships and complications is key to navigating a successful claim.
