Kentucky drivers advised to be vigilant of large truck hazards

Commerce requires the transport of goods, and that means tractor-trailers use the same roadways as passenger vehicles. Accidents with tractor-trailers can be serious, but drivers can take precautions to reduce their chance of crashes with large trucks.

Types of grounds for product liability

There are several grounds on which an injured plaintiff may base a product liability case to recover damages suffered from the use of a product. It may be helpful for people in Kentucky who are in this situation to learn about the grounds on which they may sue.

Thousands of people die from medical errors

Thousands of people in the United States die each year because of medical errors made in hospitals, including in Kentucky. Just how many people die under such circumstances, however, is hard to determine. The issue has been debated for more than a decade, with estimates ranging from 98,000 to 440,000 people. No one really knows the exact number.

Cars and trucks need to safely share the road

Kentucky motorists may want to exercise caution when sharing the roads with big rigs and other large trucks. They may not understand how the huge vehicles operate and that they need more room on the roads than passenger cars, especially if they are going fast and need to brake suddenly.

Shoulder injuries caused by car crashes

Motorists in Kentucky might be interested in understanding more about the types of shoulder trauma that result from a car accident. The shoulder is constructed of an arm bone, collar bone, shoulder blade and three joints held together by soft issue. The impact sustained in a crash may be strong enough to shatter the collar bone or shoulder blade of some vehicle occupants. The main types of shoulder injuries include soft-tissue injuries, dislocations and fractures.

Reducing incidents of distracted driving in Kentucky

While behavior like checking a text or having a quick snack while driving does not seem harmful and does not always end in disaster, the chances of a car accident increase when a motorist is distracted. Distracted driving injures more than 1,153 people in the United States each day, and drivers in Kentucky can take steps to stop driving while distracted in order to reduce the likelihood of an accident.

Measles may become more common in Kentucky

Many medical experts believed that measles had been eradicated in the U.S. thanks to vaccines that protect people from this disease. However, according to ABC News' chief health and medical editor, when diseases like measles become less common, parents begin to believe that there is no need for vaccinating their children. As a result, these diseases often experience a resurgence.
