NOAKES LAW GROUP
Louisville Car Accident Attorney
Your Kentucky Car Accident Law Firm
Helping Auto Accident Victims in Louisville & Throughout Kentucky
Car accidents happen so quickly most people have no idea what happened. One minute they were waiting to make a turn at a light and the next their vehicle was upside down in a ditch. In an instant, their life has been changed completely.
The car accident lawyers at Noakes Law have dedicated our careers to getting injured victims like you answers to what happened and why. With our experience, we can negotiate a favorable settlement that holds negligent drivers and other parties accountable for your injuries.
Car Accidents & Negligent Drivers
Most car accidents are caused by negligent drivers who fail to use proper caution while behind the wheel. Kentucky requires that drivers have licenses issued by the state, but many drivers today forget the lessons they learned in driver’s education class. Rather than drive sensibly, they make some serious mistake, such as:
- Passing illegally
- Weaving in and out of traffic
- Failing to use their mirrors
- Failing to yield
- Driving while fatigued
- Driving while intoxicated
- Texting and driving
Drivers who fail to use reasonable care are legally liable for any accident they cause, and they must pay compensation to victims. Of course, many motorists deny they did anything wrong, so hiring an attorney can help with a claim.
Cause of Most Car Accidents
Every year, hundreds of individuals are injured or killed in car accidents in the United States. The majority of car accidents are caused by driver error, while some accidents are caused by weather or road conditions. If a motorist is careless in any way, there could be serious consequences. So, what causes the majority of car accidents? Some instances are as follows:
Tailgating, swerving between lanes, cutting off other cars, and road rage are all examples of reckless driving that can result in serious car accidents. On city streets and interstate roads, aggressive drivers like these are common. We take such matters very seriously at Noaks Law Group.
You are not simply entitled to the money you deserve when you sue a careless motorist who caused your accident. You also send a clear message that reckless behavior will not be tolerated.
What constitutes irresponsible driving is a point of contention. Drivers who are irresponsible and break the law may claim that they did nothing wrong. It is not a good idea to disagree with such drivers. We’ve arrived to handle the talking. We know how to conduct extensive accident investigations and obtain the evidence needed to prove your case in court.
Distracted driving, particularly texting while driving, has become a global issue, claiming the lives of thousands of Americans each year and injuring tens of thousands more. When a driver’s attention is diverted away from the task of driving, distracted driving occurs. Some examples of distracted driving are:
- Driving while texting
- Using a mobile phone
- Driving and eating at the same time
We’ve all had cars ram into us on the highway, even while we were going much over the speed limit. It’s unusual for someone to drive faster than the posted speed limit by 10, 15, or even 20 mph. The longer it takes you to react, the more dangerous you are on the road. If you’re going 20 miles over the speed limit, it’s unlikely you’ll avoid an accident.
We all get tired every now and again. When people are sleep deprived and get behind the wheel, accidents might happen. They may be unable to focus on the road due to exhaustion, and they may even fall asleep while driving. Drivers who become sleepy out of the blue should find a safe area to pull over and relax.
Defective vehicle accidents
Even though most collisions are caused by driver error, there are times when a vehicle malfunction is to blame. Vehicle or component defects include airbag failures, seatbelt failures, and bursting fuel tanks, to name a few. We can help you file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the defective vehicle or component.
Have you been involved in a vehicle accident? Make sure you get the support you need
Accidents can be avoided a lot of the time. In many cases, someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior causes serious damage or death. As a result, you must take action if you have been harmed or have lost a loved one as a result of someone else’s negligence. If you don’t, the consequences of their actions may land on you.
You should not be held responsible for the mistakes of others if you were not at fault. Make a compelling argument for the justice you deserve. Contact Noaks Law Group today to learn more about what we can do for you. We can cite multiple victorious court cases as proof.
We Help People Injured by Negligent Truck Drivers
Truck accidents are unique due to the federal regulations trucking companies are required to follow. Truck accidents require time sensitive requests by our law group to ensure both the driver and company have not violated these guidelines prior to the accident. We will fight for you and your family to get you what you deserve.
How a Louisville Car Accident Lawyer Can Assist
At Noakes Law, our legal team will put in the work to identify the correct person to sue. In addition to another driver, we might sue the government for failing to maintain safe roads or a manufacturer for selling a defective vehicle.
Every case begins by listening to you describe what happened. We then seek out additional evidence, including eyewitness testimony. We might also visit the accident scene to take pictures and possibly collect evidence.
We also communicate with insurance adjusters and submit claim forms in a timely manner. Our clients appreciate the fact that we handle all the paperwork so that they focus on recovery.
Fair Compensation for Your Injuries
Car accidents are expensive. Even seemingly minor injuries could cost thousands of dollars, and repairs to a vehicle often reach five figures. Our goal is to obtain fair compensation to cover all losses, such as:
- Medical expenses, including the cost of surgery, physical therapy, diagnostic tests, prescription drugs, and doctor visits. If you have permanent injuries, we will seek future medical care, such as the cost of future surgeries.
- Lost wages when you cannot work due to an injury.
- Loss of earning capacity, where permanent injuries force you to accept lower-paying work or prevent you from working at all.
- Damage to your vehicle and other property.
- Pain and suffering, such as the physical pain and inconvenience you feel.
- Emotional distress or mental anguish, for the emotional pain accompanying an accident.
Let us review the facts to determine how much you realistically can seek in compensation. If you were partially to blame, for example, you will receive less than if you were entirely blameless.

Recovering the Damages You Deserve
If someone else is to blame for your injuries, you have the right to seek compensation for the full amount of damages you’ve suffered. These damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, as well as pain and suffering. You must bring forth your claim within one year of the accident date. Not filing your case within one year will bar you from recovery.
