What to do when you sustain injuries in an Uber

Many people have discovered the benefits of hailing an Uber or Lyft in Kentucky. You can get a fare estimate right now to figure out how much it will cost to get around Bowling Green

With so many Uber drivers on the road, there are extremely high chances at least some of them will end up in car accidents. Sometimes the Uber driver will cause the accident, and sometimes it will be a result of another driver. Either way, you need to follow key steps in the immediate aftermath to have an insurance agency cover your expenses.

Deadly motor vehicle accidents prior to Kentucky Derby

The Bluegrass State has a reputation as a fun-loving, down to earth place to live, work and visit. From its sprawling landscapes, die hard sports fans, unique music scene and historical significance, Kentucky has something for everyone to enjoy. While many headlines in the state are positive, residents are all too aware that they are not entirely safe from serious motor vehicle accidents

One of the biggest annual events in the nation is the Kentucky Derby, which takes place in early May of each year. A major attraction for residents and tourists alike, the Derby draws enormous crowds. One side effect of this is increased traffic, especially in locations close to Churchill Downs, which is the home of what is possibly the most famous horse race in the world. 

Kentucky motor vehicle accidents: 1 dead, 2 seriously injured

Kentucky drivers are likely to agree that when behind the wheel, it is important to avoid distractions, obey traffic laws and operate a vehicle as safely as possible. Surely, no one sets out on their journey anticipating a serious collision. Unfortunately motor vehicle accidents cannot always be prevented and, on some occasions, prove fatal for some. 

Recently, Kentucky police responded to the scene of a serious accident on KY 7. Upon arrival, they determined that the vehicle of a woman headed northbound somehow crossed the center line of the road and collided with an SUV traveling in the opposite direction. The SUV contained a driver and a passenger, who suffered injuries so severe they both had to be taken by helicopter to a local hospital for treatment.

In the moments after a car accident, be as calm as possible

If you've been unlucky enough to be involved in a car accident in your life, then you know just how debilitating the injuries can be in the aftermath. You are also all-too-aware of the chaos that can unfold in the moments immediately after the car accident. These are some of the most critical moments in the post-accident process, so handling them in a responsible manner is important. So what should you do?

Before you panic and try to flee the scene of the accident, take a deep breath, count to 10, and just relax. You survived the crash and you don't have to get out of your car and start berating the people involved in the crash. That will only escalate the tensions in the situation. And you obviously shouldn't flee the scene -- unless you're interested in handcuffs.

Study shows medical errors to be a leading cause of death

A 2016 study conducted by patient safety researchers indicates that medical errors may be responsible for a higher number of deaths than most people realize.

The research took into account the data from four large reports and because of the results, medical errors moved up to a position of more importance on the list of common causes of death in the U.S.
