You just had a lovely evening attending a friend’s wedding at the Millanova Winery. You danced, you ate, and you enjoyed a good time with friends and family members who you had not seen for a little while. Now, you and your family are driving to your Mount Washington home when a trailer truck crosses over into your lane of traffic and is directly heading for your vehicle. As you see the lights of the truck getting closer to your automobile, you realize that your life and the life of your family is going to change forever.
Truck accidents are more common in the United States than people think. In 2012 alone, according to the Department of Transportation, more than 3,900 people were killed and more than 104,000 people were injured in automobile crashes involving a truck that weighed more than 10,000 pounds. During that same year, 333,000 large trucks were involved in accidents. From 2011 to 2012, there was a 4 percent increase in fatalities where a large truck was involved. Of these fatalities, 73 percent took place with the occupants of a passenger vehicle.
It can be easy to look at these numbers and just see statistics. However, when you think that every single one of these numbers represents a family or a group of friends who were in a situation like we mentioned at the outset, it really shows how devastating truck accidents can be. If you or a family member are the victims of a truck accident, you need an experienced Mount Washington truck accident attorney who will fight for your rights. This is where we at Isaacs & Isaacs come into the picture.

We have had the privilege of representing Kentucky residents for more than 22 years. We have seen more than 50,000 cases. Because of our diligent pursuit of truth and justice, we have been able to help our clients recover judgments in excess of $700 million.
We are not just personal injury attorneys who handle truck accidents. Truck accident cases are at the heart of what we do. We are experienced in dealing with trucking companies and with insurance companies. We are not intimidated or afraid of challenging a large trucking company or holding their insurance companies feet to the fire to get a settlement that is in the best interest of our clients.
Our Kentucky attorneys are as familiar with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations as trucking companies are. We understand the laws that dictate over the road trucking and that limit the amount of time a driver can be on the road. We have the resources needed to investigate your accident to see if any of these governmental regulations have been broken and as a result led to your accident. It is our firm belief that every single victim of a trucking accident should get compensation for their injuries.
The Trucking Company Is Not on Your Side
From the moment the accident happens, the trucking company and their insurance company, begin setting plans in place to limit their liability . Their insurance company may try to force you to settle quickly, or they may try to encourage you to take a settlement that is a fraction of what you deserve. Trucking companies and insurance companies understand the severe injuries and damage trucking accidents cause. They also understand the financial burden that trucking accident victims must endure as they try to recover from their accident. These institutions are not above using the financial stress put upon the victims to try to force them to accept a settlement that is not in their best interest. We at Isaacs & Isaacs have seen this time and time again, and it is something that we will never allow to happen to our clients.
From the moment we take your case, we will start to get evidence from the accident scene, find key witnesses, find experts, work with engineers, and attempt to reconstruct the accident with the goal of making the strongest case for you possible.
We are committed to open and honest communication with you. We will stay in contact with you every step of the way as we fight to see to it you get every dime you are owed. Contact us today and let our legal team fight for you.
