What Causes the Most Child-Related Motor Vehicle Injuries and Deaths?

As adults, we spend a lot of time in vehicles, whether traveling to and from work, our kids’ schools or extracurricular activities, to the store, gym, a movie, on a trip, and everywhere in between. While we tend to think of ourselves as spending a lot of time on the road, children do as well. 

Even if you’re not the person transporting them back and forth to school daily, then someone is, whether it’s a nanny or babysitter, school bus driver, or a carpool service. The same goes for transportation to and from their extracurricular activities, such as dance, sports, music lessons, or scouts. Then, there’s the potential that they’re involved in religious activities. You can also add into the mix travel for field trips, games or competitions, and going different places during school breaks or summer camp.

If you were injured at a four-way intersection, determining who is at fault is an important first step to making sure the at-fault party is held accountable.

Knowing who has right of way at a busy four-way stop can help your car accident lawyer establish fault after a vehicle collision.

What Are the Dangers of Using a Phone at a Red Light?

There are few things that feel worse than being stuck in traffic or at a long red light. Some Lexington drivers deal with this by reaching for their phones. This type of behind-the-wheel phone use might feel safer than texting and driving, but that does not mean that it is actually safe.
