Winter weather a factor in multi-vehicle truck accident

Earlier this month Kentucky experienced an unusually severe bout of winter weather. Snow and ice packed streets made driving difficult. However, this does not absolve motorists of their duty to drive with due care. This applies even when driving conditions are poor. The failure to slow down and drive with due care when winter weather strikes could lead to serious accidents.

What types of fault might apply to car accident cases?

Getting into a car crash is no laughing matter. Some people are lucky to walk away with a few scratches or bruises and some minor vehicular damage. Unfortunately, other people involved in a car accident may be seriously injured. When a person in Lexington is injured in an auto accident, they may want to pursue compensation from the responsible party. In order to do so, however, one need to identify who was at fault.

Lack of infection control leads to nursing home abuse and neglect

People in Kentucky might assume that the nursing homes they choose for their loved ones will be sanitary. After all, just like hospitals and other health care facilities have infection control policies, so too should nursing homes, right? Actually, according to a Kaiser Health News analysis, nursing homes across the nation are failing to take the necessary precautions to prevent infections -- including washing their hands, keeping ill patients quarantined and having workers stay at home while they are sick. This, in turn, could potentially make nursing home residents severely ill.

Where to turn after a wintertime car accident

With winter weather upon us, it is more important than ever that motorists in Kentucky drive with due care. When the snow is falling or roads are icy, this may mean keeping a greater distance between vehicles or even driving under the posted speed limit if necessary. In the end, though, there will always be those drivers who drive negligently or recklessly and cause car accidents.
