IIHS survey shows drivers misunderstand ADAS

Advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS, have already helped prevent car accidents across Kentucky. Yet there are many drivers who do not understand that the purpose of ADAS is to assist drivers: not to replace them. In a survey of more than 2,000 drivers, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that many overestimate the various driver assistance programs on the market.

Medical never events: Injuries that shouldn't happen, but do

You'd encounter tremendous challenges in trying to find someone in Kentucky or elsewhere who has gone through most of his or her life without ever seeking medical attention. In fact, chances are that you and most people you know have visited a doctor's office on many occasions regarding adverse health symptoms. Perhaps you have or are currently preparing to undergo surgery. You have a right to reasonably expect that your medical team will provide high quality care according to accepted industry standards and safety regulations.

Trade group lobbys for broader truck ELD regulations

Large truck accidents in Kentucky and around the country claimed 4,761 lives in 2017, and the 415,000 collisions involving large commercial vehicles killed 600 truck drivers and injured a further 148,000. The Washington, DC-based Alliance for Driver Safety & Security is working to reduce these numbers, and the trade group, which includes some of the nation's largest trucking companies, recently submitted a list of proposals to lawmakers on the House Transportation Subcommittee on Highways and Transit.

The challenge of linking medical malpractice with injuries

Medical malpractice is all too common with everything from surgical errors to diagnostic and medication errors being committed in Kentucky and across the U.S. When malpractice, or the failure of a doctor to live up to accepted standards of conduct, leads to an injury, it may form the basis for a claim. Yet linking malpractice with some injuries can be difficult.

Complications that may arise in truck accidents

Any kind of motor vehicle accident can have serious consequences, but truck accidents may lead to some additional complexities. One reason is that the size of the truck simply means that more damage is likely. This size also means an accident takes up more space on the roadway, raising the likelihood of additional accidents.
