Fighting For Car Accident Victims in Jefferson, Floyd, and Clark Counties

Car accidents are the most frequent cause of injury claims in Kentucky, Indiana, and throughout the U.S. Millions of U.S. traffic accidents occur annually causing serious injuries and death. Almost all of us have experienced some type of car crash in our lifetime of driving, whether it was a fender bender or a major collision. 

These accidents are the result of all kinds of negligence, whether on the part of drivers, automakers and their parts manufacturers, or governmental agencies responsible for road safety and maintenance. Where mistakes are made, they can lead to dangerous and life-threatening accidents. And when you encounter one of these incidents, you will need a Louisville car accident attorney to help.

 That is why you need a skilled and aggressive law firm on your side working solely for your best interests. At Schuler Law Office, you can partner with a legal team committed to excellent client service backed by decades of proven results at the negotiation table and in court.
