Truck accident: Truck hits school bus on busy Kentucky highway

An early morning school bus ride gave students a jolt when their school bus was side swiped by a truck on a busy highway recently. The truck accident, on Kentucky 9 AA, happened when a rollback truck, which was carrying gasoline, swerved to miss hitting another truck. It instead slammed into the school bus that was stopped at a stop sign. Minor injuries were reported. 

Medical malpractice lawsuit for possible fatal injection

It is well established in the Kentucky medical community and across the United States that proper hand hygiene and sterile technique significantly reduces a patient's risk of infection. Infection may require unexpected antibiotics, medical bills and could even result in death. Recently, a family has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a pain clinic, alleging that it is responsible for the infection that their loved one did survive.

Truck accidents result in six fatalities in Kentucky

Any motor vehicle accident can result in serious property damage and physical harm. Truck accidents especially can be damaging for anyone involved due to their larger size in comparison to other vehicles. Sadly, a recent accident in Kentucky involving two tractor-trailers and two other vehicles resulted in multiple fatalities.

Victims of truck accidents may experience finanical loss

Many motor vehicle drivers fear traveling alongside tractor-trailer trucks. It is well-known that a tractor-trailer's large size can result in serious damage to a smaller vehicle and its occupants in a collision. Established regulations for truck companies and law enforcement of those regulations attempt to lessen the chance of a truck accidents, but unfortunately, they still occur. Recently in Kentucky, a man suffered serious injuries after being involved in an accident with a semi. 

Picking up the pieces after Kentucky truck accidents

Traveling down a Kentucky highway as massive tractor-trailers fly by can be a very disconcerting experience, to say the least. A motorist never knows when one of these massive machines will suddenly appear too close for comfort. Truck accidents happen every day and often result in catastrophic injuries, if not death.

Truck accidents often occur in precarious places

Some places seem to be more dangerous to drive in than others. For instance, motorists in heavy traffic, traveling at highway speeds are often at risk for sudden collisions. Truck accidents are frequent occurrences in Kentucky, with some of them happening in unlikely places, as made evident by a recent crash near SomerSplash Waterpark. 

Truck accidents, medical bills and liability

If you're traveling along a Kentucky highway and the driver of a tractor-trailer speeding alongside you loses operating control and crashes into your vehicle, who is financially responsible for your injuries and/or those of your passengers? Although the answer typically depends on several key factors, the gist of it is that any party deemed negligent may face claims for monetary relief in civil court. Truck accidents, in particular, often result in catastrophic, if not fatal injuries.

Helpful information for those recovering after truck accidents

Tractor-trailers are massive pieces of machinery that are often seen speeding up and down Kentucky highways. It's not a secret that driver fatigue, impaired driving and negligence often cause truck accidents that result in serious injury to those involved. Sadly, many people do not survive the impacts of such horrendous collisions.

When causes of truck accidents are not immediately apparent

Kentucky motor vehicle accidents often lead to lawsuits. Serious injuries, such as those often experienced when truck accidents occur, may render victims unable to work, or, in worst cases, result in fatalities. Recovering victims, and immediate family members of those who have died, are often able to seek monetary recovery for their losses in court.

Common truck accidents

Often serious injuries and death occur in large truck accidents. Typically, trucks are considered large if they weigh over 10,000 pounds, which can range from a heavy-duty utility vehicle to a semi. There are many reasons a crash can occur. In some cases, it may be poor driver training, limited experience, or poor vehicle design and construction. In others, the cause can be poor judgment, slow response time or weather.
