The Hidden Dangers of Whiplash Injuries

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.

The Inherent Dangers of Rear-End Collisions

When you’re driving, you should focus all your attention on driving safely. Your hands are on the steering wheel, your eyes are on the road, and you’re mindful of the speed limit and the other cars. You’d probably expect the other drivers to use safe driving behaviors, too, but not everyone does this.

Sometimes, people are negligent drivers and accidents happen. But these kinds of accidents do a lot of harm. While there are about 1.7 million rear-end collisions per year in the U.S., approximately 500,000 people are injured.

Why Is Texting and Driving So Dangerous?

Why Is Texting and Driving So Dangerous?

 

Most of our communication happens on a cell phone and it’s how people get a hold of you. It’s typical for people to always have their phones on them. When they bring their phones into the car, they might be tempted to immediately respond to any text they get. When this happens, they risk the safety of themselves and others on the road.

This probably isn’t the first time you’ve heard about the dangers of texting and driving. But for all the commercials and attention this behavior gets, texting and driving still happens. Texting and driving isn’t a skill and it’s not something you can get good at. This choice causes fatal car accidents that could have been preventable if the driver hadn’t looked at their phone.

Other options included severe weather/natural disaster (27% cited this as a major concern), infectious diseases (26% cited this as a major concern), prescription pain medication (18% cited this as a major concern), and commercial airline travel (16% cited this as a major concern).
