New technology for victims of motor vehicle accidents

Kentucky drivers know that getting behind the wheel always carries the risk of being involved in a crash. While more often than not, safe driving and obedience to traffic laws can help ensure that people get from place to place with no issue, by very nature, accidents happen. Now, the state has implemented new technology that may help save lives in the case of serious motor vehicle accidents

When a person suffers serious injury during a motor vehicle accident, authorities and rescue workers often have a hard time getting hold of a close friend, family member or other emergency contact. Especially in situations where a victim is injured so badly that he or she is unable to provide this information or make contact on his or her own, it can often take hours for police to determine whom to call on a victim's behalf. The moments following a crash can be critical, especially if a victim needs immediate medical treatment. 

The state of Kentucky has implemented a new service, provided to residents for free, that expedites this life-saving process. Users can sign up for this service, named Emergency Notice, with a driver's license, state issued I.D. or even a learner's permit. Once enrolled, each user can provide emergency contact information that is saved in the database. If a user becomes the victim in a serious accident, police need only scan the person's identification to find emergency contact information for the victim. 

When people suffer serious injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents, they must often deal with a myriad of issues in the aftermath. Medical bills, inability to work or attend school, and insurance matters can stack up quickly. In many cases, victims choose to bring an experienced attorney on board. An attorney can help a victim handle legal matters and seek justice against the party who caused the suffering in a court of law, and collect any damages or compensation to which he or she may be entitled.
