Kentucky OTR Truck Crash Lawyers Represent the Injured in Kentucky and Tennessee

Paducah law firm helps the injured pursue compensation for their harms and losses

Tractor-trailer rigs are heavier and larger than cars, and consequently cause more deaths and debilitating injuries when they are involved in accidents. These tragic events could often be avoided if truck drivers and companies would act according to even a minimum standard of care. Oakes Law Firm can help you bring negligent parties to justice and recover from trucking accidents involving:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Aggressive driving behavior
  • Stimulant abuse, such as methamphetamines
  • Driving in conditions which demand extreme caution, such as snow, ice, or fog
  • Unlicensed or untrained drivers
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Mechanical defects
  • Tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers

We have experience representing the injured in many types of commercial vehicle accident cases.

You need a knowledgeable team by your side

We consult qualified experts who understand the extraordinary impact of truck crashes. At trial, these professionals offer compelling testimony about your collision and resulting injuries. Our attorneys regularly work with:

  • Crash reconstruction experts
  • Trucking fleet safety experts
  • Medical doctors
  • Economists
  • Vocational experts

We use all reasonable means to present a strong case on your behalf.

Determined lawyers ready to act

Trucking companies will descend upon the scene of a crash within hours to collect (and sometimes destroy) evidence and figure out how to reduce their responsibility to you. When the debris is cleared away, vital evidence can disappear, and so may your opportunity to receive the full amount of compensation you deserve. We can take steps to preserve the evidence and punish the company if they destroy evidence. We understand the anguish that follows a catastrophic truck crash, and we will refuse to allow a negligent company to take advantage of the chaos surrounding the ordeal to lessen its own responsibility.

Fighting for the compensation you deserve

We cannot ease the heartache resulting from your losses, but we can advocate for your right to receive just compensation. We employ assertive strategies to obtain damages for past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. If you have endured the devastating loss of a loved one in a trucking accident, we can file a wrongful death suit on your behalf. We employ tenacious courtroom strategies and diligent negotiation techniques to ensure you receive the best possible recovery.

Because we believe all injured people have the right to zealous representation, our firm does not charge you until we win your case.
