Kentucky crash claims man's life

When car accidents occur, they may result in a myriad of hardships for those involved. Sadly, many accidents prove fatal and leave the loved ones of those who die with lifelong emotional pain and financial problems. In Richmond, and in other Kentucky cities, it is vital for drivers to understand the risks they face each time they get behind the wheel and take steps to prevent a traffic accident from occurring. Regrettably, reckless drivers will continue to put the lives of others at risk due to drunk driving, speeding and other types of dangerous behavior.

Tips on talking about divorce with your kids

For parents in Kentucky, perhaps the most troubling aspect of divorce is discussing the matter with their children.

Major accident may lead to major financial recovery

In just a few seconds, a motor vehicle collision in Kentucky can quickly change your life long term. A serious accident can lead not only to emotional scars but also serious injuries that can negatively affect your ability to lead a normal life. These serious injuries may include neck or brain injuries, for example.

Collision avoidance systems and rear-end collisions

A rear-end collision in Kentucky can be a serious accident. In fact, the National Transportation Safety Board notes that from 2012 to 2014 this type of accident was responsible for more than 1,700 deaths in the country. With the majority of rear-end collisions being due to driver inattention, the NTSB has recommended that all vehicles come equipped with collision avoidance systems. These systems come with automatic breaking and alarm systems that alert drivers and stop the vehicle in time to prevent a rear-end crash.

What are the workers’ compensation benefits in Kentucky?

When a worker is injured or has acquired an illness on the job in Kentucky, he or she is entitled to payments under workers’ compensation.

According to Ky.gov, these benefits are offered under the Commonwealth’s Workers’ Compensation program.
