Auto accidents damage more than just the vehicles involved. Serious car crashes can impact your life, health and financial wellbeing. When an accident is caused by another driver, you do not have to bear the burden of mounting medical bills and unpaid wages alone. As a crash victim, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

According to the latest statistics from the Kentucky Department of Transportation Safety, there were 150,213 car accidents in 2007. That means that more than 400 crashes occurred every day.

There are many causes of car accidents, including:
- Distracted drivers
- Drowsy drivers
- Reckless driving
- Drunk driving
- Poor road conditions
- Tire blowouts or failure
A serious injury can prevent you from immediately returning to work and may cause immense pain that requires substantial medical treatment. Kentucky and Ohio laws are very specific when it comes to dealing with auto accidents. The Ohio and Kentucky auto accident attorneys at the Law Office of Schachter, Hendy & Johnson have a thorough understanding of the laws and we will make sure that your medical bills are paid and that you have the income you need, if you are forced to miss work. We recommend that you contact our office before negotiating with the insurance company.
Semi-truck accidents are frequently caused by the following circumstances:
- Over-tired truck drivers
- Inexperienced or poorly trained drivers
- Excessive speed of semi-trucks
- Improperly secured loads
- Spilled or shifted loads
- Mechanical failure of large trucks
Based on the massive weight of the semi-truck in comparison to passenger vehicles, there is no question as to why these collisions are usually catastrophic. Semi-truck accident cases can be complex. Our Ohio and Kentucky trucking accident attorneys know how to handle these types of cases and have the experience necessary to take on the trucking company and insurance company.
