Kentucky Auto Accidents

Car crashes happen daily in the state of Kentucky. The state sees around 150,000 auto accidents every year. Around 25,000 of these cause injuries and approximately 700 end in fatalities. Sadly, the majority of these wrecks are caused by driver negligence. 

Across the country, negligent driving has caused more accidents than anything else in the past ten years. Annually, more than 90% of reported traffic accidents in the United States happen due to negligent driving. Motorists who get behind the wheel while intoxicated, tired, or distracted, or while traveling at unsafe speeds, risk their own lives and the lives of the drivers they encounter on the road. 

Unlawful and negligent driver behaviors place numerous people in harm’s way every day. Drivers, motorcyclists, pedestrians, and cyclists alike are at risk of sustaining severe or even fatal injuries when they are sharing the road with people who aren’t paying attention, driving safely, sober, or fully awake. When drivers act inattentive and careless, the chances of them causing someone serious or even fatal injuries are, unfortunately, extremely high.
