A car accident can occur in the blink of an eye. Sometimes victims never even see the accident coming. Until they get their senses back, they might not even know what just happened. Victims might not understand the gravity of what just occurred medically, financially and emotionally either. That’s because they don’t yet realize that an entire family can be affected by a car crash that was caused by the carelessness and negligence of somebody else.

Accidents on New Circle Road
Kentucky Route 4, better known as Lexington’s New Circle Road, serves as the beltway around the city with an inner loop and an outer loop traveling clockwise and counterclockwise, circling Lexington with interchanges leading to each of the surrounding towns, as one travels clockwise the exit numbers leading to the interchanges increase from 2 to 19.
While this is normally a fairly safe road there are a few dangers we hear about most often.
Congestion: Because there are no other freeways leading through Lexington, New Circle Road becomes very congested during rush hours. The heaviest traffic is on the back side of the highway from Newtown Pike exit 9 through Tates Creek Road exit 18, due to all of the people trying to head into town in the morning rush and out of town in the evening rush.
Distracted drivers: Even though the speed limit is 55 mph on the backside of the beltway, traffic often runs well over 70mph. Traffic can be traveling at a high speed and come to an instant slow down or stop due to an accident or the ongoing construction. When someone isn’t paying attention this results in a rear-end collision.
Uber and delivery drivers: New Circle Road serves as the quickest access for pizza delivery drivers, Uber and Lyft drivers and delivery trucks including tractor trailers. These drivers are sometimes more focused on the time frame of their deliveries than they are the safety of other drivers.

Damages from a Car Accident
Often when people are seriously injured in an accident, they’re unable to work, no matter how badly that they want to. Suddenly, through no fault of their own, they’re rendered unable to pay their rent or mortgage, utilities and thousands of dollars in medical bills. That’s when they turn to us to pursue compensation for their damages. Under Kentucky law, just some of those damages might consist of the following:
- Past medical bills and medical bills reasonably expected to be incurred in the future.
- Past lost earnings and earnings reasonably expected to be lost in the future.
- Any permanent disfigurement.
- Any permanent disability.
- Pain and suffering.
- Diminished quality of life.
- Other damages including funeral and burial costs in the event of a wrongful death.
Possible Liable Parties
Although another driver could be held liable for your injuries, other people or entities might have contributed to them. Those can include a driver’s employer, the manufacturer of your vehicle, the manufacturer of a faulty vehicle component or part, a vendor of alcoholic beverages or even the city, county or state that designed and maintained a roadway.
Don’t Think That You’ll Be Treated Fairly
Sometimes liability is admitted, but the opposing insurer will still question the reasonableness of the damages that the victim claims. Remember that the insurer’s primary concern is its bottom line and not the victim’s. That’s why you shouldn’t assume that the opposing insurer is going to make a fair and reasonable settlement offer to you. That even applies with your own insurance company if you’re making an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim. Your bottom line is precisely the reason why it’s so important for you to retain an experienced, aggressive and effective Lexington car accident lawyer to represent you in any personal injury case.
