Aggressive Lawyers Pursue Full Compensation for Louisville Auto Accident Injuries

Experienced attorneys represent crash victims in Kentucky and Indiana

After an auto, motorcycle or trucking accident, you are probably feeling overwhelmed with medical and property damage bills. You have the right to seek compensation, and you need to be represented by an attorney who has the knowledge and skill to advocate for you. The Schuler Law Office has a well-deserved reputation for effective service and attention to detail. As with every case we handle, our attorneys are prepared to challenge the insurance company’s lawyers and present a compelling argument in court for you.

Sobering statistics point to the dangers on Kentucky’s roads

In 2015, there were more than 136,000 motor vehicle collisions in Kentucky. Those collisions resulted in 761 deaths and nearly 15,000 injuries. More than 1,000 of those collisions injured pedestrians, killing 71 of them, and of the 405 collisions involving bicyclists, seven people were killed. The main contributing factors in Kentucky automobile accidents are driver behavior, vehicle malfunction due to design or maintenance issues, and road and weather conditions.

Helping you determine fault after a Louisville car accident

To obtain full compensation for your injuries after a car accident, you must be able to show by a preponderance of the evidence that another party was at fault. This often means proving negligence on the part of a driver or owner of a vehicle, the manufacturer of a car, or the municipality responsible for maintaining safe road conditions. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your crash and consult accident reconstruction experts to establish fault.

Recovering full compensation for various car accident injuries

Kentucky roads experience a greater rate of car and truck accidents than the national average. Common injuries from auto accidents in the commonwealth include:

  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Concussion and traumatic brain injury
  • Internal organ damage
  • Soft-tissue whiplash injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries, including partial and complete paralysis
  • Shock due to blood loss
  • Wrongful death

When choosing an attorney to represent your case, you should look for one who has specific experience with your type of crash and injuries. Lawyers at the Schuler Law Office have managed auto accident cases involving catastrophic injuries and are prepared to fight for full compensation, which includes:

  • Costs of past and future medical treatment
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost earning past and future
  • Pain and suffering damages

We aggressively pursue the maximum damage amount possible under the facts of your case.

The role of motor vehicle insurance in Kentucky

Kentucky is a “choice no-fault” auto insurance state. That means no matter who was at fault for your accident, you must turn to your own insurance company for compensation first. When purchasing car insurance, you do have the option of opting out of the no-fault system, but then you run the risk of someone else suing you after an accident. Our experienced personal injury lawyers help you understand your options under your insurance policy and help get you the compensation you need.
If you’ve sustained a physical injury, compelling you to sue the at-fault party, you may find that driver has insufficient insurance coverage. Kentucky law requires drivers to carry a minimum level of liability insurance as follows:

  • $25,000 bodily injury per person per accident
  • $50,000 bodily injury for all persons per accident
  • $10,000 property damage liability
  • $10,000 personal injury protection

This is hardly adequate for a serious injury that requires hospitalization. To make matters worse, insurance industry studies indicate that about 16 percent of drivers in Kentucky have no insurance at all. Dealing with an uninsured or underinsured driver can complicate your pursuit of justice, making it even more important to seek the help of a skilled and experienced auto accident attorney.

  • "Hi David, I received your voice mail earlier and I cannot explain the relief/joy I felt. I know it may come as a surprise but I felt more excitement from that voice mail than the day we settled. I was expecting the settlement but I was not expecting to hear the news you left on my voice mail. I cannot express in words how thankful I am that you have taken care of this for me. . . Truly I thank you from the bottom of my heart. With much gratitude,"  -H.G.

  • "Mr. Schuler, After dealing with the previous two attorneys I had, I honestly had little faith in any of the attorneys I talked to. I thought there was no way I was going to get out of the trouble I was in and I thought no one really cared. I thought all attorneys were out to make money and cared little for their clients. You proved me wrong. Your actions backed your words and I was amazed at the outcome of my case. Not only will I be able to keep my current job, but I will also be able to resume a normal life. I can now get back to focusing on my life with my family. And because of your persistence with my case, I can continue coaching my kid’s basketball teams and attending their field trips. I took these things for granted before but now I truly appreciate what I have. I owe all of this to you. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you have done for my family and me. Your thorough work and dedication towards my case gave me new hope that there are honest people out there, and not every attorney is out to make money only. I also appreciate the genuine concern you showed towards my case and how the outcome not only could affect my job, but my life also. Without your help, I fear to think what the outcome of my case would have been. The deal you worked out with the prosecutor has given me a chance to resume a normal life, and for that, I cannot thank you enough. Sincerely,"  -R.B.

  • "Dear David, I wanted to thank you for all your help in this matter. I liked the way you handled things. It instilled a sense of confidence and security in me. I appreciated the respect you showed for me and my situation. Most importantly, I appreciated your kindness and compassion. You restored my faith in the law. You restored by faith in people. Thank you, David. Sincerely,"  -B.L.

  • "Dear Mr. Schuler, I wanted to express my gratitude to you for helping my husband…get out of jail. This is a horrifying experience not only for me but for my kids as well. I hope this will never happen again. But I wanted to thank you for being there for me and calling me and getting me updates. May God bless you. Sincerely,"  -G.H.
