Determining Negligence in a Louisville Accident Claim

Determining negligence in Kentucky can be tricky when it comes to your Louisville accident claim. That's because if you were partly at fault, it will impact the amount of compensation that you are entitled to.

Because Kentucky follows pure comparative negligence, any percentage of fault assigned to you will reduce that amount from your damages.
So if you are 80% at fault for an accident, then your damages will be reduced by that amount.

This is why you need a strong legal team who will investigate every aspect of your case to prove the other party's level of negligence. This will require collecting evidence that helps build your case, which may include the police report, pictures of the accident scene, statements from witnesses, or even reconstructing the accident.

An attorney will be able to determine if the other party acted in a manner that was reckless or careless, such as disobeying traffic laws, and, as a result, it caused an accident leading to your injuries. 

Comparative negligence in Kentucky can significantly affect the outcome of your Louisville accident claim, which is why you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible about your case.
