The Kentucky Attorneys At Elk & Elk Have Answers

There are some common-sense things you should do after a car accident:

  • Call the police.
  • If anyone is hurt, call the EMTs.
  • Exchange insurance and contact information with the other driver. However, don't accept responsibility for the crash.
  • If you can, use your cellphone to take pictures of the damage to the vehicles and surrounding property. If you can't use your cellphone, make a list.
  • Notify your insurance company of the crash. However, don't sign anything until you speak with your car accident lawyer.

What Types Of Auto Accident Cases Do We Handle?

The lawyers at Elk & Elk have been helping clients after motor vehicle accidents for many years. We have obtained compensation for clients after crashes such as:

  • Distracted driving accidents: Accidents involving drivers who were texting, talking on the phone, using a GPS, taking photos or videos, and engaging in other distracting behavior while driving.
  • Rear-end accidents: These types of accidents commonly occur at stop lights or stop signs, and can result in serious neck and head injuries.
  • Accidents caused by defective automotive components: We hold negligent product manufacturers accountable when their defective products cause or contribute to a traffic accident.
  • Accidents caused by poorly maintained roads: Uneven lanes, low shoulders, pot holes, and other road defects can cause serious accidents.
  • Drunk driving accidents: We hold drunk and high drivers responsible for accidents caused by their negligence.
  • Accidents involving uninsured or underinsured drivers: We can help you pursue compensation even when the other driver was uninsured or had little insurance.
  • Crashes involving semi trucks and other commercial vehicles
  • Fatal accidents: We represent family members who have been left behind after a loved one was killed in a motor vehicle crash.
