What are the real costs of complex car accidents?

The last few months of the year tend to mark the beginning of the holiday season. Many people in Kentucky use this time as an opportunity to be with family, which often requires traveling over long distances. With many more people on the road and potentially hazardous driving conditions from winter weather, complex car accidents are more likely to occur.

Motorcycle accidents often don't end well for the riders

Whether you ride for pleasure or economic reasons, being on your motorcycle provides you with benefits that passenger cars do not. On the other hand, riding also comes with certain risks. The fact of the matter is that motorcycle accidents do not always end well for the riders, whether they take place here in Kentucky or elsewhere.

Are distracted driving or drunk driving accidents worse?

Driver negligence takes many forms, but some behaviors behind the wheel are more dangerous than others. Who would have thought that a time would come when researchers would compare distracted driving accidents to drunk driving accidents in terms of danger and fatalities. You may be among the many Kentucky residents who would be surprised by what the data shows.

Good Samaritans help out at scene of devastating car accident

Many Kentucky residents will rush to help someone in peril without even thinking about their own safety first. These good Samaritans could even end up saving someone's life. In fact, at least one person recently involved in a devastating car accident more than likely owes his life to several people who stopped to help.

Severe and fatal injuries result from single-car crash

It may be both a gift and a curse that many auto accidents here in Kentucky and elsewhere only involve one vehicle. On the one hand, innocent motorists are not involved. On the other hand, those in the vehicle could suffer serious or fatal injuries as a result of the crash.

What factors led to devastating car accident here in Kentucky?

In some Kentucky motor vehicle crashes, the factors that caused it are readily known. In others, however, understanding what happened may be a challenge. Further investigation may be required in an attempt to understand the factors that caused a devastating car accident, especially if the driver deemed responsible for it died in the collision.

Drunk driving blamed for devastating car accident

Kentucky drivers know the dangers of driving under the influence, but that does not keep some people from getting behind the wheel anyway. Other drivers do what they can to keep an eye out for impaired drivers in an attempt to keep themselves safe. Sadly, those efforts are not always enough to avoid a devastating car accident that could result in severe or fatal injuries.

Will federal regulators pass stricter requirements for truck underride guards?

Any accident involving any two vehicles can result in serious injuries and death for those involved. Car accidents involving large trucks are particularly dangerous for drivers of smaller vehicles, though, not only because of the sheer weight and size difference in the vehicles, but also because of the risk of the smaller vehicle being pinned underneath and crushed by the truck.

Work with experienced attorney to make best possible use of crash investigation reports

Last time, we looked briefly at a report by the National Safety Council which found that many states don’t do enough to collect important information about motor vehicle crashes. As we noted last time, the report found that the state of Kentucky uses standardized crash report forms which only account for five of the 23 factors examined by the nonprofit.
