Fault for crashes on remote roads can be difficult to prove, especially if there are no witnesses to give details of the accident. In cases such as these, a Kentucky accident attorney can often provide methods of evidence gathering that you may not have access to. Accident reconstruction specialists can help piece together the details of an accident when no one else can, and an experienced attorney may be able to bring this sort of help to your case.
