Barren County Auto Accident Lawyers More than two million visitors visit Mammoth Cave National Park every year, and Barren County is one of three counties in Kentucky that lays claim to the largest known cave system in the world. And while the area’s economy relies heavily on tourism, all those additional vehicles can increase the risk of car accidents.
At Matt Hardin Law, our Barren County car accident attorneys are always ready to speak with people who were injured in car accidents that were caused by the negligence or carelessness of other drivers. We know victims often face expensive medical bills that they can’t pay—especially if their injuries prevent them from working—but we have a strong track record of success when it comes to obtaining compensation for our clients.
Types of Car Accidents We Handle When you’re searching for a law firm to represent you after your accident, it’s important to get one that’s experienced handling a wide variety of crashes and scenarios. Our legal team has two decades of combined experience building claims for all types of vehicle accidents, including:
Also known as “T-bone accidents,” side impact crashes often occur at intersections, particularly when drivers run red lights or stop signs. These types of accidents can cause drivers and passengers to suffer critical injuries due to their direct impact zones and high levels of force. Head, neck, and spine injuries are common in these types of crashes, and victims may be left with temporary or permanent paralysis and disability.
Whether they’re caused by drivers passing where prohibited, driving on a street heading in the wrong direction, or making a left turn without checking if any vehicles are headed their way, head-on collisions are among the most dangerous types of car accidents. These accidents are associated with serious and even life-threatening injuries, and victims frequently require prolonged hospital stays and extensive rehabilitation during their recoveries.
Like head-on collisions, rollover accidents are strongly associated with life-changing and fatal injuries. Vehicles with high centers of gravity are particularly susceptible to rollover accidents, especially when drivers swerve or lose control of their vehicles. These accidents become even more dangerous when victims are ejected, and the Centers for Disease Control says that around 75 percent of people who are ejected die from their injuries.
Bumper to bumper collisions can range from minor fender benders to devastating crashes that leave victims with head, neck, and spinal injuries that can be life-changing. These accidents are frequently caused by drivers who follow other vehicles too closely, but they can also be caused by chain-reaction crashes where multiple vehicles are pushed forward into each other due to an initial collision.
Distracted Driving Wrecks
When people learn to drive, they’re taught to keep their eyes, ears, and mind on the road when they’re behind the wheel. Unfortunately, that advice is often ignored, especially when drivers have access to technology like smartphones, GPS systems, and other electronic devices. Distracted driving has been described as an epidemic in Kentucky and throughout the United States, and the problem is getting worse every year.
Drunk Driving Wrecks
One of the most common causes of serious and fatal car accidents, drunk driving accidents can leave victims in serious pain, disabled, and even fighting for their lives. People who get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol past the legal limit fail to uphold their responsibility to drive safely—and their negligence means that victims can pursue claims for compensation.
These are just a few of the accidents we handle. During our two decades of practice, we have successfully obtained compensation for victims of countless auto accident types, situations, and scenarios, and there’s no claim that we aren’t equipped to successfully resolve for our clients.
