Car Accident Injury Attorney Serving Murray Paducah and Southwestern Kentucky
Are you looking for an experienced and highly recommended car accident and injury attorney in Murray or Southwestern Kentucky? The Roberts Law Office has more than 25 years of experience as a personal injury lawyer representing people who have been injured in a car crash. If you have been involved in a car accident we strongly recommend you see a doctor for a thorough check-up within 24 to 48 hours of the accident, even if you think you are uninjured. Many injuries can actually take several weeks before your body experiences the pain and impact of what has happened. Insurance companies can refuse to pay an injury claim if you do not see a doctor after the accident. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
The next step is to contact the Roberts Law Office to learn more about how an injury claim is handled and why it is so important to have an experienced lawyer. The insurance company which is liable for compensating you for your injuries is focused on one thing: keeping the most profit possible for themselves by attempting to get you to settle your case for far less than you deserve. You only have one chance to settle your case or put it before a jury. You can’t go back several months or years down the road when new expenses arise. The Roberts Law Office works to ensure you recover full compensation under the law for the injuries you’ve been forced to suffer, and all of your resulting expenses now and in the future.
What Are the Most Common Causes of Car Accidents in Southwestern Kentucky?
Our Kentucky courts look to a number of factors in determining whether a driver was negligent. Some examples include, but are not limited to:
- Distracted driving – including eating, texting or e-mailing while driving
- Reckless operation – going too fast or too slow
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving on the wrong side of the road
- Failing to signal
- Running a stop sign, traffic light or other traffic control device
- Failing to adjust driving for weather or traffic conditions
- Turning into the path of oncoming traffic
The most common location of car accidents resulting in injury in Kentucky happen in an intersection. The resulting side impact or “t-bone” crashes do not provide occupants of a vehicle with the same amount of protection as they actually would have in a head-on or rear end impact.
Side impacts unleash severe forces on the neck and spine as the body violently shifts during the impact of a car accident. The resulting damage to the discs which are designed to protect your vertebrae may not actually create any symptoms for several weeks. We have had many clients over the years who basically thought they weren’t injured after the initial accident, but were bedridden within a few weeks due to damage to the discs in their back or other soft tissue injuries.
Car accidents on the roads of Southwestern Kentucky may result in serious injuries. Many injuries may result in the permanent loss of a range of motion in the legs, arms or fingers. Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI can actually change the personality of the victim while impacting their ability to process information in the ways they used to. This can make it difficult to handle interruptions, complex tasks or even a trip to the grocery store.

When you are involved in a car accident and injury you may be entitled to reimbursement of your lost wages and medical bills. If the accident was someone else’s fault, you may also be entitled to additional financial damages, including pain and suffering and an impaired capacity to earn. If the accident was someone else’s fault, you should be entitled to have your vehicle repaired or replaced. Even if the at-fault party does not have insurance, you may be able to pursue a claim against your own insurance company for your damages.
Insurance companies have trained adjustors and experienced lawyers helping them to defend claims. Insurance companies generally begin preparing the defense of their claims within hours after the wreck occurs. Therefore, it is vitally important for you to act quickly after being involved in a collision. Your actions can impact your rights and the recovery that you are able to obtain. Therefore, you need an attorney who is familiar with these claims and is also familiar with how insurance companies work to help you navigate through the process successfully.
