When you have been hurt because of the negligence or recklessness of someone else, particularly in a car accident or truck accident, you may be able to get compensation for your injuries if you can substantiate that the property owner or other responsible party failed to exercise reasonable care to prevent the injury.

To win, you must prove that:

  • A duty was owed to you by the person who caused your injury
  • The responsible individual or business failed to carry out the duty they owed you
  • You were injured
  • Your injury was caused by their failure

If a consumer product has hurt you, however, the manufacturer or seller may be responsible under strict liability law. To win, you need to prove that:

  • The product was defective
  • You used the product the way it was supposed to be used
  • The defect caused your injury
  • You suffered damages

Kentucky follows the rule of comparative negligence in apportioning damages. This means your damage claim can be reduced by the amount you are found to be at fault. To get the legal support you deserve, turn to Lanna Martin Kilgore.
