Who pays if they aren't driving their own car in a crash?

You asked to borrow a friend's car for a weekend away, because yours is getting older and you didn't want to have any malfunctions on the road. While you didn't have any malfunctions, you couldn't have predicted that you were going to be involved in a collision.

Worried about your loved one driving on the "Dixie Die-way?"

It's one thing to know you're in control behind the wheel of your own vehicle, and quite another to watch your son, daughter, spouse or other family member pull out of your driveway, heading for Dixie Highway in Kentucky. Locals named this stretch of road a "die-way" instead of "highway" for good reason. It's dangerous. There are many fatal accidents there; in fact, advocates for change, including several Jefferson County council members have announced plans for major projects that will -- hopefully -- make the roadway safer.

Truck accidents are dangerous but avoidable: Seek a claim

Truck accidents cause many injuries and fatalities every year. As a driver who is in a passenger vehicle, you probably already realize that a crash involving a truck could kill you or result in serious injuries. Your vehicle simply isn't as heavy as the truck, which means it's more likely to be crushed under the weight of the other vehicle.

Fall driving is dangerous for even the best drivers

Driving in the fall has the potential to be dangerous for a number of reasons. One of these reasons is back-to-school traffic. In the morning and mid-afternoon, you may notice heavier traffic than usual. On top of that, buses and other forms of transportation clog up the roadways. It's necessary for you to pay attention during these times, because there is a higher possibility for someone to make a mistake that causes a crash.

What should you do if you crash in Louisville?

Fatal accidents on the rise in Louisville

If you love taking an evening walk in Louisville, you may want to know about the fact that fatal pedestrian accidents are on the rise in the city. Up to mid-August 2017, there have been 18 crashes between people and vehicles. Nineteen people died as a result. In 2016, there were only 24 crashes in all, so 2017 is looking to be a record year.
