Auto Accidents

Auto accidents happen for a wide range of reasons. Often, driver negligence is to blame. Drivers can make innocent mistakes. But in many cases, accidents caused by another driver can be traced back to different types of reckless driving, including hit and run accidents. Other common forms of reckless driving include speeding and drunk driving accidents. By holding careless or inattentive drivers responsible for their actions, you can help prevent these accidents in the future.

What Causes Kentucky Car Crashes?

In recent years, texting and cellphone accident injuries have become increasingly common. Often, texting drivers do not notice that the vehicle in front of them has stopped, resulting in a rear end accident. When these accidents occur, a neck injury or whiplash injury can often result. If a loved one dies in an auto accident caused by another driver, you may have grounds for a wrongful death case.

Even so, speeding remains one of the most common causes of car wrecks in Kentucky, especially on busy highways like Interstate 64, Interstate 65, Interstate 71 and the Dixie Highway. Hit and run accidents also continue to create chaos in people's lives. And if a loved one dies in an auto accident caused by someone else's reckless driving, you may have grounds for a wrongful death case.
