The Hidden Dangers of Whiplash Injuries

Car accidents cause many kinds of injuries. One of the most common is whiplash. The impact of the car crash makes your head make a quick, jerking motion forward and backward. The sudden motion can stretch and tear the muscles and tendons in your neck, which causes neck strain.

Whiplash injuries are dangerous because you might not notice them at first. The initial shock of a car accident can mask the symptoms of your injuries. You might even think you’re perfectly fine and don’t need to see a doctor. But this can make your injuries worse because they’re not being treated.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you might feel stressed about recovering, missing work, and paying the medical bills. With a Lexington car accident injury lawyer at your side, you can potentially get compensation for the damages the other party caused. The Law Office of Todd W.

What’s the Deadliest Interstate in Kentucky?

What’s the Deadliest Interstate in Kentucky?

Some Kentucky interstates have a large amount of fatal collisions each year. While many aspects that contribute to these collisions are preventable, like speeding, distracted driving, and drunk driving, the numbers are still high.

Kentucky driving laws state that drivers under 18 aren’t allowed to use cell phones, but drivers over 18 can use their phones except for texting, which is illegal. However, when drivers depend on their phones for GPS or talk to someone, their attention isn’t completely on the road. This could lead to the high number of accidents on the interstate.
