What to do after car accidents?

Kentucky residents who have been in auto collisions know that, after the fact, everything can seem like one big blur. It is an emotionally charged thing to experience, and some may forget what they are supposed to do. Following car accidents, there are certain steps that both parties should take if they are physically well enough to do so. In cases of severe accidents, some of these things just may not be possible.

Everyone knows that, after a car accident occurs, it is important to remain at the scene. For victims, this is generally easy enough, as they will want to wait for help to arrive. However, some individuals who are responsible for collisions sometimes fail to stick around, which only hurts them in the long run.

Ignition Interlock and the Breathalyzer: To Blow Or Not To Blow?

When people are arrested for driving under the influence, there is a tendency to do whatever the officer suggests, including taking the blood alcohol breath test. It seems like the thing a good citizen should do.

Serious brain injuries can occur at low speeds

We think of traumatic brain injury only becoming apparent after high-speed, high-impact collisions. The more we learn about brain injuries, however, the better we understand the harm done to the brain even in low-speed, low-impact events.

Low-speed crashes can cause different injuries, from concussion to mTBI (mild traumatic brain injury). So-called mild TBIs can occur at speeds as low as 15 to 20 mph.

Danger ahead: Distracted drivers

Everyone who has driven the streets of Radcliff knows that it's a problem. You know it just as well if you have driven on Interstate 65 or the Wendell H. Ford Western Kentucky Parkway. Distracted driving is a growing danger, and when your vehicle and others are moving at high speeds, the risks of a car accident that causes injuries or fatalities is even greater.

The federal government's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that each day, more than 1,000 Americans are injured in wrecks that involve a distracted driver. About nine people die every day in distracted driving crashes, too, the CDC says.
