Fatal motor vehicle accidents may stem from drunk driving

A young girl's life was recently snuffed out in a Kentucky car accident, leaving her surviving loved ones to grieve and wonder how her life could have ended so soon. Sometimes these types of motor vehicle accidents occur due to the negligent or reckless driving of another individual. In the situation involving the young girl, the man who police said caused her crash was reportedly driving while intoxicated, and as a result, he has been taken into custody.

The accident took place along Kentucky 259 a little before 7:30 p.m. on a Tuesday. Authorities said that the man was headed south along the highway in a car. All of a sudden, he reportedly entered a northbound car's path and crashed into it.

Steak N' Shake allegedly causes woman to slip and fall

A woman in another state recently claimed that she suffered serious hip injuries at a Steak N' Shake eatery due to the restaurant's negligence. Specifically, the restaurant is accused of causing the woman to slip and fall on a freshly mopped floor. The woman has thus decided to file a premises liability suit against the restaurant, seeking damages. Likewise, any person in Kentucky who is injured on a company's premises as a result of the employees' carelessness has the right to take legal action.

According to the lawsuit, the accident happened when the woman was attempting to leave the eatery. Employees had just mopped the floor and set out caution signs that indicated that the floor was wet. In addition, before the woman got up to leave, a manager of the store processed her receipt for her so that she would not have to cross the wet floor to reach the register.

Motor vehicle accidents involving semi-trucks may be fatal

A man's life has sadly been snuffed out in a tragic truck wreck in Kentucky. He was 44 years old. Sometimes, these types of motor vehicle accidents occur due to a fellow driver's carelessness, in which case the party who caused the accident may be held liable through the civil court system.

The car accident occurred along Interstate 64. According to authorities, a semi-truck was hauling wood and deck stain while heading east. All of a sudden, the truck went over the highway's grassy median. The semi-truck then crashed into a pickup truck that was going west. Both motor vehicles broke through a highway guardrail and descended down an embankment.

Woman claims Walmart's negligence caused her to slip and fall

A woman in another state recently claimed that a Walmart Supercenter caused her to suffer injuries due to its carelessness. She filed a premises liability lawsuit against the retail giant. In the same manner, anyone in Kentucky who believes that a business property owner's negligence caused them to slip and fall and, in turn, suffer injuries has the right to take legal action.

In the recent case, the woman claimed that she was in the laundry detergent aisle at a local Walmart store one day. All of a sudden, one of her feet reportedly slipped on a wet substance.  As a result, the woman alleged she fell forward, and her other knee bent backward and twisted.

Motor vehicle accidents may lead to serious injuries

Four people have sadly suffered injuries in a head-on car collision in Kentucky. The crash occurred during the early morning hours of a recent Wednesday. These types of motor vehicle accidents can easily happen due to the carelessness of a driver, in which case the driver may be held liable in civil court for any injuries resulting from the crash he or she caused.

The accident took place at 7:15 a.m. According to police, a woman was operating a car and suddenly struck an icy patch on the road. At that time, she reportedly struck a van carrying two children and an adult.

Kentucky ranked near the bottom in nursing home quality

The quality of care at nursing homes has a very big impact on residents. Unfortunately, Kentucky didn’t do very well in a recent set of state rankings regarding such facilities.

The rankings compared the states and Washington D.C. in their average scores on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ nursing home quality rating system. This system is a 5-star rating scale that scores nursing homes based on measures related to quality, staffing and health inspections.
