Pedestrian victim of motor vehicle accident

Summer is right around the corner, and Kentucky roads will be busier than ever. In addition to increased vehicle traffic, drivers should also be on the lookout for persons on foot. There are any number of reasons a person may be walking on the side of the road, and when a pedestrian becomes the victim of a motor vehicle accident, the result is often serious injury or death. 

Summer travelers beware: motor vehicle accidents a possibility

This time of year, many hard-working Kentucky residents look forward to planning summer travel. The school year is coming to an end, and it can be nice for families to take a break and get out of the house, even if it is just a trip to a local pool or park. Drivers should be aware that, even on a fun day, a driver must use caution and try to avoid motor vehicle accidents

Motor vehicle accidents: Breakdown on the bridge

Drivers dread the moment a vehicle breaks down. Cars and trucks can become disabled for myriad of reasons, and, sometimes, with no warning. When such a scenario unfolds while driving, people in the vehicle are at risk. If a driver must exit his or her vehicle to deal with mechanical issues, the possibility of motor vehicle accidents increases. 

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

Kentucky motor vehicle accidents: Cars that cross the median

Most Kentucky motorists understand the importance of maintaining a correct and safe position in a traffic lane while navigating a highway. Police officers often pull people over if they witness their vehicles veering left or right, or crossing over a yellow line. If a driver is negligent or reckless, it may cause him or her to careen off the road or into the paths of other cars. Such situations often lead to motor vehicle accidents that result in moderate, severe or fatal injuries.

Motor vehicle accidents raise towing concerns

Kentucky is a beautiful state and, even in the modern era, has been a haven for many who cling to rural living. Sprawling farms and ranches dot the countryside. This sort of life is now assisted by modern technology, and people are able to have the best of both worlds. Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents are still a major problem, and despite advances in transportation safety, lives are still lost on a regular basis. 

Holidays bring increase in motor vehicle accidents

Kentucky drivers should expect an increase in traffic as the holiday season approaches. Each year, many thousands of people across the nation travel to visit friends and family. Combined with daily local traffic, motor vehicle accidents occur with greater frequency. 

Motor vehicle accidents involving alcohol have high casualty rate

With countless television commercials, posters and other attempts to warn the public about the dangers of drinking and driving, Kentucky law enforcement has made a valiant effort to keep the roads safe for drivers and pedestrians. Unfortunately, people still choose to drive under the influence, and when they do, the risk of serious motor vehicle accidents increases exponentially. Recently, an attempt to cover up a drunk driving crash left a victim's life in limbo. 

School is in and children at risk for motor vehicle accidents

By now, most Kentucky families have settled into their back to school routine. With the first day jitters long past, parents and students may feel like they are finally able to relax and enjoy the new semester. Unfortunately, many children take a bus to and from school, and like the occupants of any vehicle, bus riders are at serious risk of being injured in motor vehicle accidents

Seatbelts may not prevent ejection during motor vehicle accidents

When it comes to vehicle safety, wearing a seat belt is one of the simplest and most important steps a person can take to stay safe in the event of a crash. Kentucky law requires all motorists and vehicle occupants to be properly restrained in a seat belt or car seat. Seat belts are designed to keep a person in the safest position possible during motor vehicle accidents, but being buckled up is never a guarantee that serious injury or death can be prevented.
