Nearly 2 million Dodge Ram trucks recalled over roll away risk

Consumers depend on manufacturers to ensure that their vehicles and other safety-critical purchases are safe. The bigger the brand name, the more entrenched the expectation that the product in question has faced and passed rigorous safety testing. While that may be true of many products, individual batches of components or minor changes to design may not undergo the same level of safety testing, leaving consumers vulnerable to potential fatal malfunctions.

A review of beneficiaries for wrongful death cases

A wrongful death action brought after the death of a Kentucky resident must be filed by the personal representative of the decedent's estate within one year of the individual's death. Once the matter is filed and the sides have pleaded their cases to a court, a judge will offer a ruling that either accepts the plaintiff's or defendant's claims. If the complaining side wins, there are a number of beneficiaries who may recover damages from the defendant.

What is a spinal cord injury?

Every year thousands of men and women suffer serious injuries in negligence-based accidents. Vehicle accidents on Kentucky roads can result in broken bones and serious trauma to victims, and dangerous products can leave unsuspecting consumers with life-threatening ailments. While any part of a person's body can be impacted by a serious incident, spinal cord injuries are somewhat common and can be very serious.

Minimum coverage insurance policies could cost you more over time

Owning and driving a vehicle isn't cheap. In addition to paying for a loan or lease for the vehicle itself, there are additional fees, like registration and insurance. Combine that with unpredictable gas prices, oil changes and other maintenance, and it all adds up to a substantial sum.

Loss of companionship damages in wrongful death case

Some personal injury damages are easy to quantify. For example, when a Kentucky resident is hurt in a car accident and requires medical treatment, the bills that they incur from hospitalizations, doctor visits, prescriptions and other accident-related care may be added up and included as losses in a claim for damages. Similarly, if the victim has to miss work in order to recover from their ordeal, they may claim their lost income as damages as well.

Why are some prescriptions drugs considered dangerous?

When a Kentucky doctor prescribes a medication to their patient, they make an educated decision to treat the patient's ailment with the selected pharmaceutical. In their best estimation, the doctor believes that the selected drug will remedy the patient's health problems. Some prescription medications carry with them known side effects, and, when making a drug selection, a doctor may elect to prescribe a drug with side effects if the benefits outweigh the potential for harm to the patient.

Motorcycle accidents present real dangers to victims

Motorcycles are not uncommon on Kentucky roads and many individuals use these two-wheeled vehicles to get them from home to work and to everywhere in between. In fact, some drivers prefer riding their motorcycles to driving their cars for the freedom that motorcycles offer in terms of experiencing nature while undertaking their daily commutes.
