Driving a large commercial vehicle like a semi truck or 18-wheeler requires specialized training and focus. The heavy loads that these trucks carry make them more difficult to control and more dangerous to the other drivers on the road. When truck drivers are careless or distracted, truck accidents become more likely.
At the law office of O’Brien Batten & Kirtley, PLLC, a Lexington, Kentucky, personal injury law firm, we are steadfast advocates for people who have been seriously injured in truck accidents caused by distracted driving. Our lawyers fight for clients, helping them hold negligent drivers responsible for the harm they cause to others on the road.

For truck drivers who spend long stretches of each day on the road, multi-tasking can seem like a way of life. However, many of these activities distract a driver’s focus from the road and create dangerous conditions. Driver distractions often include:
- Talking on a cellphone, even when using a hands-free device
- Using GPS
- Playing with radio controls

We are strong litigators and are never afraid to take a case to trial to help clients secure the compensation they need to cover their medical bills, damage to their vehicle, wages lost from time off of work, and pain and suffering.
