Louisville truck accident lawyers


Large trucks travel on our highways every day, passing cars and merging into traffic. Sadly, collisions involving tractor trailers occur all too often. People in passenger cars involved in accidents with tractor trailers are likely to bear the greater brunt of the wreck. Truck companies pay high insurance premiums because of the frequency of wrecks and the severity of injuries. The experienced truck wreck attorneys at Hessig and Pohl will make sure truck accident victims are not left with a financial burden as well.

motorcycle accident attorneys


Motorcyclists have the same rights as any other vehicle on the road. Because motorcycles are small, though, they can be difficult for passenger cars and tractor trailers to see. About half of all motorcycle wrecks involve another vehicle. When you ride a motorcycle, it is often just you, the open road and fresh air. But if you are in a motorcycle accident, you do not have to suffer alone. The compassionate attorneys at Hessig and Pohl will fight for you to get what you need while you heal.

Louisville car accident attorney


No matter how safely and defensively you drive, other drivers on the road could be driving negligently and recklessly. In recent years, there have been over 25,000 car accidents every year in Kentucky. If you have been injured in a automobile accident, the best thing to do is contact an experienced Kentucky car wreck attorney in order to have your questions answered and get the compensation you deserve.

Louisville workers compensation attorney


Your job is supposed to help you, not hurt you. Unfortunately, workplace accidents happen in factories, hospitals and at other job sites. The consequences of an on-the-job accident can double when you realize you have unexpected medical bills and cannot work to pay them due to your injury. Your company should support you. Unfortunately, they do not always grant you the benefits you deserve. Sometimes, managers shift the blame and companies minimize your injuries to protect their bottom line. The trained workers’ compensation attorneys at Hessig and Pohl will protect your interests and get you the coverage you need.

An injury can mean high doctor bills, lost work, property damage to your car and much more.  If someone else was at fault, why should you have to pay the price?  The fact is, you probably shouldn’t.  That’s why hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer is a smart decision. Our attorneys are available to meet with you wherever it’s convenient for you.  We’ll come to your hospital room or your home.

A client was fatally hit by a cement truck while crossing the street. She and a coworker legally crossed an intersection on their way to lunch when the truck’s front tire turned right and pinned the woman to the street. Hessig & Pohl was able to recoup $5 million for the victim’s family in this tragic loss of life case.


Our client was involved in a semi truck wreck. We filed suit and found out they had a 1 million dollar policy. We were able to get them to offer the policy but we wanted more. We were able to force the trucking company itself to come up with more money out of its own pocket to settle the lawsuit.


After being struck by a commercial vehicle in a car accident, our client called the personal injury lawyers at Hessig & Pohl. We were able to get him a $2.6 Million settlement to help him move forward with his life.

Successful Cases






In one car accident case, our client agreed to not call the police after the man who hit her promised to take care of her car damage and medical bills. But when she contacted him later, he said he was not at fault. Hessig and Pohl’s legal team drove to the area where the crash occurred and found a car wash nearby with a camera that caught the wreck on video. Armed with video evidence, the man’s insurance company did not want to argue with that proof. Our client rightfully got paid.





In another auto accident case, a man was hit by a young driver who said she had no car insurance. Hessig and Pohl’s legal team did a bit of digging and discovered the young driver resided at her grandmother’s house and so were able to file a claim against the grandmother’s policy. The man’s car was repaired, and he received compensation for his pain and suffering. Hessig and Pohl’s attorneys do not just take the information given to them. They go out and get the information themselves.
