What standard applies to drivers near child pedestrians?

Accidents between vehicles and child pedestrians can be tragedies. These often-preventable collisions commonly occur in school zones, parks and other locations where Kentucky children regularly frequent. Though drivers always are expected to exercise reasonable care when operating their vehicles, when children are around a higher standard of care may apply to drivers.

Did you know that the radio causes accidents?

Many things cause car accidents in Kentucky, from drunk driving to distracted driving to a simple lack of experience that causes young drivers to make mistakes. After all, one very small error can lead to a deadly crash when everyone is traveling at 60 miles per hour.

Recognizing defects in the design of unsafe products

It is not unusual for product manufacturers to release new designs for the items they make. This is because it is in the interest of sellers to keep their products up to date and competitive with what their competitors have available on the market.

What can Kentucky drivers do to stay safe around large trucks?

Not long ago this Kentucky personal injury legal blog discussed several critical events that truck drivers can cause that can lead to serious collisions with other motor vehicles.

Is it time to review your motor vehicle insurance policy?

You have probably been paying for motor vehicle liability insurance for as long as you have had a license and a car of your own. After all, Kentucky law mandates that all drivers must ensure their vehicles. They do this in order to ensure that victims of a crash do not end up responsible for the costs of losses caused by another driver on the road.

A settlement may be offered after a motor vehicle accident

After a serious car accident a victim may find themselves confronted with hefty medical bills, a wrecked vehicle, and the inability to work. This can be a tragic combination for a Kentucky resident who depends on their income to keep a roof over their head and food on the table for their family. In the days following an accident, a victim may be contacted by representatives of the party whose negligence caused the relevant crash. Those representatives may offer the victim money in order to settle their potential accident-related claims.

Guardsman discovers tire defect on military vehicles

A concerned Kentucky guardsman made an important discovery while executing his duties as the Chief Warrant Officer for the 203rd Forward Support Company.

He noted that all of the affected tires were at least five years old and that sidewall cracks could lead to tire blowouts and accidents for impacted vehicles.
