The dangers of drowsy driving

We all get tried from time to time. Whether it is a rough nights sleep, you are up late working on a deadline or are ill, it can be tough to get through the day when you do not get enough sleep. Lack o sleep can show in our social interactions and work productivity. It can also impact our abilities to do some activities, such as driving a motor vehicle. In fact, getting behind the wheel when you are drowsy is considered to be rather risky and could be even more dangerous than drunk driving.

Rear-end car accidents can result in whiplash

You may be stopped at a stop sign, a red light or in congested traffic when, "Bam!" You've been rear-ended by another driver. Such car accidents are, unfortunately, all-to-common in Lexington and nationwide. Some victims of a rear-end accident may be fortunate enough to walk away with nothing more than a few bumps or bruises. However, they should keep an eye on their health over the coming days and weeks, as some more serious injuries might not manifest themselves right away.

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.

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.

Automobile collides with Fayette County school bus

Riding a school bus is an iconic part of the lives of most children in Kentucky. We can trust that the bus drivers will act responsibly and transport children to school and home again safely. Unfortunately, we can't always trust other drivers on the road to exercise such caution, which could lead to a serious accident.

Even one drink could lead to car accidents

Some people in Kentucky do not think twice about having a drink or two at a restaurant, bar or party, and then driving home. They may think that they have not consumed enough alcohol to put their blood alcohol content level above the legal limit of 0.08, and therefore it is safe for them to drive. However, even drinking a small amount of alcohol could affect a person's ability to drive.

Car accident victim dies over a week following the crash

Drinking alcohol is a part of life for many people in Kentucky, a state made famous for its bourbon and distilleries. However, what people should never do is get behind the wheel of a car while drunk. Drunk driving presents dangers not just to the person who consumed alcohol, but also to all others on the road, as one recent incident shows.

Can I recover damages in Kentucky if I am partially at fault?

Car crashes in Kentucky often have many facets to them. Road conditions, weather conditions and actions or inactions on the part of all drivers involved can combine to result in the car accident. For example, one car may be speeding when it is struck in an intersection by another car that ran a red light. The motorist who was speeding may have been injured in the crash, and may want to pursue a lawsuit against the motorist who ran the red light. However, the motorist bringing the lawsuit may wonder how the fact that they were speeding might affect their ability to seek damages from the other party.

Rear-end car accidents can cause severe injuries

It may have happened when you were stopped at a stop sign, a red light or simply a slow-down in traffic. In your rear-view window you see another vehicle approaching you, quickly. Before you know it, "Bam!" The vehicle has rear-ended you. Unfortunately, situations like this happen in Lexington all too often.
