Truck accidents often result in fatalities

The American economy is trending up. As the economy grows, so does the need to transport merchandise and other products. Trucks are the lifeblood of the economy in Kentucky, as businesses across the state rely on trucks to export and import goods on a daily basis. However, this also means that the number of semis on roadways is increasing, making truck accidents more likely to occur. Because of the size of semitrucks, any accident involving these vehicles is more likely to be serious.

Although it is not common knowledge, negligence in the medical field is one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States. The vast majority of health care providers in Kentucky and across the country are skilled and well-trained professionals, but this does not prevent them from making mistakes.

Recently, a patient in another state had her fingers and toes amputated due to alleged medical malpractice and she was awarded $16 million.

Truck drivers may prepare for them, but generally that means harm reduction practices for when they've already lost control of their vehicle.
