This is a video in our LawTok series: Straight Talk with a Personal Injury Lawyer
If you’ve contributed to a car accident in Kentucky, then it’s certainly worth your while to talk to a professional who handles these cases every day. A lot of times, who is at fault is not so clear, even from a law enforcement agency officer showing up a half hour early or later and trying to determine who actually caused the accident. Sometimes you have cases like head on collisions, where it’s not so clear. You really need to dig into what was happening prior to the accident. Side swipe collisions, even rear end collisions, every now and then, there’s a little contention to it.
Now, rear end collisions, usually, the car that’s in the back, that hits the car in front, they’re usually at fault, but you don’t want to make assumptions about who’s at fault in car accidents when there’s thousands of dollars in property damage on the line, when there’s your health on the line. You want to talk to a professional, someone who’s in Kentucky, usually someone who only operates in Kentucky. So you don’t want to hire an attorney who’s got a billboard in Georgia, in Florida, in Tennessee, they’re all over the place. You want someone who’s focused, honed in on your case to get the best results for you.
