What's behind most highway fatalities

Not only are highway accidents common in Kentucky, but they also prove to be fatal in many cases. That is why drivers should be aware of the most common factors in highway fatalities. Some factors can be avoided, while others are simply out of one's control. Nonetheless, accidents almost always arise from some form of human negligence or misjudgment.

International Roadcheck slated for June

Commercial truck drivers in Kentucky probably know about the International Roadcheck, an annual event set up by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance with the purpose of enforcing compliance with truck and bus safety guidelines. Over a 72-hour period, inspectors across the nation conduct an inspection spree on both truck and bus drivers, issuing out-of-service orders for any vehicle- or driver-related violations.

OOIDA asks for rehearing over sleep apnea lawsuit

There are a number of factors that can lead to trucking accidents in Kentucky. Unfortunately, one of the most dangerous causes is truck driver fatigue. Drowsy driving is a major public safety concern for people behind the wheel of any vehicle, but it's especially troubling for those driving massive loads during lengthy shifts.

Birth injuries could give birth to a medical malpractice claim

Depending on medical conditions and diagnosed problems, the birth process can be risky to both the baby and the mother. Sometimes, the actions and missteps from medical staff, including Kentucky doctors and nurses, can lead to additional complications. Sadly, many babies suffer from birth injuries that are the result of preventable mistakes and unnecessary interventions.

What Kentucky drivers should know about soft tissue injuries

The soft tissue comprises the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the body as opposed to the hard tissue, or the bones and cartilage. Soft tissue is often torn, sprained or strained in car accidents because the impact, sudden braking and bracing of the body stretch it in extreme ways. The result is usually chronic pain and swelling in the neck.
