Richard M. Rawdon, Jr. Attorney at Law
His Way Of Law Matches Your Way Of Life

Assisting Accident Victims In The State Of Kentucky

You try to be safe and pay attention. Unfortunately, there are several distractions. People often get caught up in the moment, are busy with work and have their minds preoccupied. Because of this, people are negligent. If you have been injured in an accident, Mr. Rawdon is here to help you fight for justice and compensation.

Protecting The Rights Of Victims With Empathy And Care

When another person or business causes you physical or psychological injury, you may be entitled to money for your medical expenses, loss of income and your pain and suffering. For 50 years, Mr. Rawdon has helped people recover money for their harms and losses. His extensive litigation experience, knowledge about insurance company tactics, settlement negotiation and trial skills have enabled him to obtain the best recoveries for his clients.

Assisting Victims Of Motor Vehicle Crashes

Kentucky and federal statutes and regulations set forth rules that a driver must follow when on the road. When the driver fails to follow the rules, other people on the highway are in danger of being hurt or killed. Too often car and truck drivers cut corners to get to their destination on time. Motorists may be driving too long without sleep, not properly maintaining the truck, trailer, or car, talking on their cellphone or texting, drinking alcohol, using recreational or prescription drugs that impair their judgment, reaction time, or their ability to maneuver their car or truck safely, or be speeding.

When the driver or trucking company violates the rules, and someone is injured or killed, it is not an accident. The law holds those drivers, and in some cases other parties, who don't follow the rules liable for the injured person's damages — such as owner of the truck or car, equipment manufacturer, other negligent drivers or government entity.

You will want to take action after an accident. The right steps will put you on the road to recovery, and help you seek justice.

Some frequent causes of tractor-trailer, semitrailer wrecks include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Unreasonable schedules
  • Improperly loaded or overloaded trucks
  • Defective equipment
  • Distracted driving
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Lack of training and experience
  • Intoxication
  • Dangerous weather conditions
  • Defective roadways
  • Excessive speed.

After a collision with a semitruck, Mr. Rawdon can help you seek justice and compensation.

Helping Those Injured From Slips And Falls

In Kentucky, a property owner may be responsible for your injuries if the owner negligently fails to reasonably maintain the property, or creates an unreasonable hazard that causes a visitor to take steps to prevent injury.

Possible fault may occur when:

  • You fall off an unprotected ledge
  • You slip on a spilled substance
  • You fall down a defective staircase
  • You trip over an unmarked obstacle
  • You fall due to a lack of warning signs
  • You trip over obstacles in dim lighting

Seeking Justice And Assisting The Community

In Kentucky, there are time limits on filing a claim for your losses. There are also regulations that stipulate how long a trucking company and other businesses must keep records and evidence.

Time is important. Witnesses may disappear and memories fade, and evidence can no longer be found. Don't wait, contact Rawdon Law Office today. Visit his Georgetown office, or call 502-316-6509. Mr. Rawdon has the stamina and experience to get the job done.
