Switching careers after a car crash

The physical and mental toll of a motor vehicle wreck can be devastating, and the lives of victims may be permanently altered in many ways. Some people may lose the ability to walk, or they may experience challenges in their marriage due to emotional issues associated with the accident. These are just some of the hardships that car crash victims may endure, but there are many other ways in which lives may be turned upside down. For example, some people cannot work in a certain field any longer due to physical or mental injuries sustained in an auto accident, necessitating a career switch.

Large truck crashes involving multiple vehicles

When a large truck collides with another vehicle, the crash can be extremely devastating for those who are involved in the accident and their loved ones. Sometimes, a large truck accident may involve multiple vehicles, and these wrecks can be particularly tragic. For example, a large truck driver may be driving too fast and lose control of their vehicle, resulting in a collision which involves two, three or even more vehicles. The aftermath of these collisions can be terrible and there may be multiple people struggling with serious injuries or even fatalities. If you were involved in such a collision, you should look into any legal options that may be available.

Millennials and distracted driving

Many millennials in Kentucky have all but grown up with electronics in the palm of their hands. Over the past couple of decades, everything from cell phones to tablets and more have become ubiquitous in modern society. While these gadgets have and can provide many benefits to people, they also have opened up new dangers, especially when they are used by people actively driving vehicles. Distracted driving may well be poised to become the new drunk driving.

Bicycle accidents during the summer

When it comes to traffic accidents, the summer months can be dangerous for countless reasons. For example, an increase in the number of drunk drivers may occur during the Fourth of July, road construction and travel can make crashes more likely and many pedestrians find themselves involved in traffic accidents. However, this is an especially dangerous time of year when it comes to bicycle accidents. Many children are out of school and enjoy riding their bikes often during summer break, and many adults take advantage of the warm weather and ride their bike to work or to get exercise. Sadly, this can result in a deadly accident.

Defining respondeat superior

The destructive potential of the large semi-trucks that people see driving around Bowling Green may mean that those involved in truck accidents can reasonably expect to have to deal with massive recovery costs. These can include both medical expenses, lost wages and automotive repair costs. Yet before one can seek compensation for such expenses, it should first be determined who is liable: the truck driver or the company that employs them? 

Are crashes involving animals more likely in the spring?

There are many auto accident risk factors to watch out for during the spring, from drivers who are drowsy as a result of allergy medication to poor weather conditions. However, wildlife activity is another potential hazard for many drivers, especially in certain areas. It is important to be vigilant when behind the wheel, and this means watching out for other vehicles as well as various hazards which may result in a collision, such as wild and domestic animals.
