Danger of bike vs. car accidents evident after hit-and-run crash

Kentucky drivers are expected to stop and help others who might have been injured after car accidents. This is especially true when it is an accident between a car and a bicycle. Since bicyclists are so vulnerable to injuries and fatalities, time and acting rapidly can be the differentiating factors in helping someone who was hit by a motor vehicle when on a bicycle. If the driver chooses to flee the scene, it goes from an accident to an act that could lead to criminal charges. These situations are worse when the accident is with a child on a bicycle. Those who have been hurt in these car accidents should be aware of their options to seek compensation.

A lawyer can help with a case of nursing home abuse and neglect

When a family in Lexington makes the difficult decision to place an elderly or ill loved one in a nursing home, they are expecting the care to be up to industry standards, for medication to be dispensed correctly and on time, and for the person not to be victimized by neglect or mistreatment. Unfortunately, the news is littered with stories of nursing home residents being subjected to various forms of abuse. When there is evidence or a belief that nursing home abuse and neglect is taking place, having legal assistance to investigate the claims and move forward with a legal filing is critical.

Helping you take action after falling victim to a truck accident

It is nearly impossible to travel on any major roadway in Kentucky or any other state without encountering a commercial truck. Semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks are relied on to transport goods to their final destinations. Therefore, these vehicles are used by multiple industries, causing the constant and rising truck traffic on the roadways. While there are many benefits for large commercial trucks, they come with many risks that could result in a truck crash.

What are the common causes of truck crashes?

The trucking industry plays a vital role in society. Because of this, the number of trucks on the roadways across the nation will likely continue to grow, as the trucking industry is critical to intrastate and interstate commerce. Despite the fact that trucks are very useful, they pose many dangers to society as well. These vehicles are massive in size and weight, and because they do not maneuver the same way as other vehicles, they are prone to serious and fatal truck collisions.
