How Many Car Accidents Occur in Kentucky Each Year?

According to the Kentucky State Police Collision Facts, there were 156,758 reported traffic crashes throughout the Commonwealth last year that accounted for over 22,000 injuries, and nearly 700 fatalities.

At Taliaferro, Carran & Hampton PLLC, our personal injury attorneys in Covington know that while these crashes are often referred to as “accidents” the property damage, injuries, and fatalities that result do not happen by chance.

In fact, direct negligence is responsible for most crashes that occur on our Kentucky roadways, including last year’s statistics that reported:

  • Distracted driving caused over 50,000 collisions, accounting for nearly 140 deaths
  • Alcohol-impaired driving caused almost 3,500 crashes, causing nearly 150 fatalities
  • Drug-impaired driving caused over 1,500 collisions, accounting for over 50 deaths
  • Speeding caused nearly 1,200 crashes, causing 114 fatalities

When negligent drivers make the decision to operate their vehicles recklessly, our fellow Kentuckians pay the price with severe injuries and the tragic losses of their loved ones, which is no accident.

If you have been hurt in a crash with a negligent driver, contact our experienced personal injury lawyers in Northern Kentucky today to schedule a free consultation to learn how we can help you pursue their insurance coverage for your full financial recovery.

How Many Motorcycle Accident Crashes Occur in Kentucky Each Year?

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, there are nearly 98,500 motorcycles registered throughout the Commonwealth.

Last year, there were a total of 1,427 collisions involving motorcycles, which caused 919 injuries and 82 fatalities, which means despite only making up less than 1% of all vehicle collisions, motorcycles represented 7% of all fatal crashes in Kentucky.

After a motorcycle collision occurs, public opinion typically points to the rider being at fault. The reality is, that is rarely the case.

Vehicle drivers hardly look twice for motorcycles, or are unable to gauge how fast bikers are traveling before turning in front of them, which can lead to catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injuries that require a lifetime of care.

If you have suffered serious injuries or have tragically lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident in Kentucky, contact our dedicated personal injury lawyers in Northern Kentucky to learn how we can help build your case for success — starting with a free consultation today.

Who Pays for My Injuries After a Hit and Run Bicycle Accident in Kentucky?

Bicycle accidents are not uncommon in Kentucky, as the Commonwealth counted 330 total collisions last year, which is nearly one each day of the year.

Understandably, due to the lack of protection, when our residents are hit while riding their bikes, their injuries are often quite severe, with 211 people suffering significant personal injuries last year alone, and four people losing their lives.

What is more alarming is that 25 of those injured and one of the four deaths were the result of a hit and run.

When our clients are hurt or lose a loved one, and there is no one to hold liable for their bicycle collision, our experienced Northern Kentucky personal injury lawyers will explain your options to pursue the financial recovery you deserve from your insurance provider.

Kentucky’s no-fault laws state that all car accident victims — even those who were injured while riding their bicycles — can seek benefits from their insurance providers.

Who is Responsible for Slip & Fall Accident Injuries in Kentucky?

Slip, trip, and fall accidents are often viewed as embarrassing circumstances, which leads to injury victims jumping up quickly to avoid what they may feel is the equivalent of causing a scene.

Unfortunately, these incidents can cause catastrophic or even fatal injuries, including neck and spine injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and severe fractures, to name a few.

Slip, trip, and fall injuries can be caused by many hazardous conditions, without warning, including:

  • Damaged or uneven sidewalks
  • Food or drink spilled on the floor of a restaurant
  • Merchandise that has fallen from a display shelf
  • Potholes in parking areas
  • Wet and slippery floors

When negligence is a factor, and hazardous conditions exist on public, private, or government premises, the following owners or operators may be held liable:

  • Business owners or developers
  • Government Agencies
  • Homeowners
  • Leaseholders
  • Property Managers
  • Public or private institutions
  • Workplaces

Ownership or control of property comes with responsibility, including a legal obligation to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe and secure condition. When property owners or operators are negligent in their duty to provide a safe space for visitors, our personal injury lawyers in Northern Kentucky will investigate the conditions and pursue the proper party for our client’s financial recovery.

Who is Liable for Dog Bites & Attacks in Kentucky?

Unlike other states, Kentucky’s dog bite laws impose strict liability on the dog’s owner, which means they do not have to be negligent in their ownership, nor know that the dog is capable of injuring someone, to be held liable for the resulting harm.

In Kentucky, a dog’s owner is outlined by our premisess liability laws as the person who:

  • Has property rights to the dog
  • Has the dog in his or her care
  • Keeps or harbors the dog
  • Allows the dog to remain on or about premises that are either owned, leased, or occupied by him or her, excluding landlords who own property, but do not live on it

More than 75% of dog bites occur from a known dog, which means many of our clients suffer severe injuries on a close friend or family member’s property.

At Taliaferro, Carran & Hampton PLLC, our dog bite injury lawyers in Northern Kentucky explain to each of our clients that whether the owner is a stranger — or someone you know and love — we can pursue their home or business owner’s insurance for your complete damages, so you can keep your personal relationship intact while still pursuing the financial recovery you deserve for your injuries.

Can I Pursue Financial Recovery If I Lose a Loved One to Negligence in Kentucky?

Under our Kentucky laws, if someone loses their life due to the legal fault of another person or entity — including negligent incidents like vehicle collisions, medical malpractice, or an intentional act like a violent crime — eligible survivors may file a wrongful death claim to pursue financial recovery for their losses.

Unlike many states, where the deceased’s family members may file a wrongful death claim, Kentucky has strict laws outlining who is legally eligible to do so.

Initially, the deceased person’s personal representative — or executor — must file the claim.

If one is not named in a will or trust, the court will appoint a personal representative.

Even then, there are exceptions, and the statute of limitations may differ depending on your family’s unique circumstances.

If you believe the loss of your loved one was caused by negligence, and you would like to discuss your eligibility to file a wrongful death claim, contact our compassionate personal injury attorneys in Northern Kentucky today to discuss your case. We want to ensure your story is told, and your voice is heard, so you can take the time you need to fully grieve without financial worry.
