Versailles KY Car Accident And Personal Injury Lawyers

Lexington may be known as the “Horse Capital of the World” but Versailles provides a lot of the “horsepower” that gives our area a world-renowned reputation. Residents and visitors are treated to an amazing view as they drive by the beautiful horse farms on the way in or out of Versailles and Woodford County.

Versailles is a great place to live but there are hazards for our families that we may not think about as we wake up each morning. Those dangers can arise suddenly while using an unsafe appliance at breakfast or navigating traffic while driving up Bus. 60 or across Lexington Road on the way to work or school.

A product malfunction or a devastating car accident caused by a careless driver can hurt you or a family member and leave you wondering how to keep the costs of recovery from bankrupting you.

Personal Injury Dangers Around Versailles

Open green pastures and famous attractions like the Woodford Reserve Distillery provide an amazing backdrop for life in Versailles. There are winding highways and narrow backroads that crisscross Woodford County and those routes can pose some of the most noticeable dangers around Versailles.

Careless drivers can lose control of their vehicles and on tight roads, leave cautious drivers little space to avoid an impact. With horse farms doting the landscape, drivers can face unique hazards when large horse trailers pull onto the road or farming machinery is suddenly taking up more than one lane.

Local drivers might not be surprised to see wandering livestock on our roads. Those dangerous obstacles can be avoided with enough warning, but any unavoidable collision can be devastating for drivers and their passengers. After injuries are treated and recovery plans laid out, the question of who’s responsible for the enormous hospital bills will come up. This is a great time to discuss your options with a personal injury attorney.

Traffic accidents involving drivers, pedestrians, or bicyclists are just one type of personal injury case that can require the help of an experienced legal representative. Here are a few other accidents that could target you or a family member and leave you in need of assistance:

  • Motorcycle Accidents – Motorcyclists love Kentucky’s wide open roads and natural wonders, but like anywhere else, other drivers can get careless and downright reckless with riders nearby. Motorists can ignore motorcyclists’ rights to the road or just fail to pay enough attention to see a rider traveling nearby. Terrible accidents can inflict severe injuries on riders. Our motorcycle accident attorneys can help you understand your legal options and make sure an insurance company doesn’t get away with trying to blame you for your accident.
  • Farmworker Accidents – Working on a farm can be one of the most hazardous jobs in the U.S. Employees work hard and risk injury from livestock, from a fall from great heights, from farm tools and machinery. Workers should be supported while they heal and get assistance with their lost job hours.
  • Construction Accidents – Another dangerous profession. Construction workers can take a fall, get caught in machinery, be exposed to hazardous materials, and suffer repetitive motion injuries. Workers’ Compensation can ignore many of the hardships injured workers face and often several parties, like project managers and tool manufacturers, can be held liable in accidents.
  • Dog Bites – Kentucky is known as a strict liability dog bite state. That means dog owners have a duty to bite victims no matter if they tried to prevent the dog from attacking. It doesn’t matter if the animal has no history of aggression. Owners can still be held responsible for all costs of medical care for victims.
  • Traumatic Injuries – Traumatic injuries can be the result of a sudden and violent penetrating blow (gunshot or knife wound) or blunt force impact (car accident or sporting injuries) from an external force. They can occur at home, on the road, or at work. These injuries are so severe victims may require a flight to the Level 1 Trauma Center at UK Chandler Hospital in Lexington.
  • Slip-and-Fall Accidents – These accidents usually occur because a property owner or business proprietor neglects to clean up or repair a hazard. A spill on a floor can cause a person to slip and break a hip or take a blow to the head. A pothole in a parking lot could trip a victim and leave them with fractures of the wrists and hands or facial bones or even a busted knee. Owners and proprietors have a duty to injured customers and visitors to help with recovery.
  • Wrongful Death – Nothing can replace a loved one lost in an accident. The emotional pain for close relatives will be extreme and only compounded by the fact that the tragedy could have been prevented. Grieving families can need protection from the financial burdens that arise. The costs of a funeral and burial, ambulance and hospital fees, and estate settlement should all be covered by the insurance companies representing at-fault parties. Our attorneys can work to protect your family and make sure they have everything they need now and in the years to come.
