Dangerous roadways and car crashes

When people picture an auto accident, they may think of a guilty driver, such as someone who is under the influence of alcohol or a driver who was reaching reckless speeds. However, there are a myriad of reasons why some accidents happen in Kentucky. For example, dangerous roadways are responsible for many deaths and serious injuries each year.

If you are driving on road that has not been plowed during heavy snowfall, are unable to see the road well because of an obstruction or find yourself on a road with guardrails that are broken, your chances of being hurt or killed in a motor vehicle crash may increase significantly. Regrettably, some roads have signs that are either illegible or do not make sense, which can lead to a crash. In some cases, the sign may be missing, leaving motorists unaware of upcoming hazards.

Sadly, these types of problems have resulted in a tragic number of fatalities and injuries that could have been prevented. There are many reasons why these dangers remain, whether a local government lacks funding or simply does not recognize the scope of the problem. If you have been hurt, or if a family member of yours has died, because of a preventable traffic accident, you should examine all avenues as you try to cope with the aftermath of the wreck.

From emotional pain to financial issues, traffic accidents often generate many worries. If you go over our car accidents page, you will find more on some of the consequences of a motor vehicle crash
