Target blamed for causing woman to slip and fall

A married couple in a different state recently claimed that the store Target caused the wife to suffer injuries due to its carelessness. For this reason, they have decided to file a premises liability lawsuit against the corporation, seeking damages. In the same way, if a company's negligence causes an individual in Kentucky to slip and fall, he or she has the right to seek to hold that business accountable in civil court.

In the recent out-of-state case, the married couple claimed that the wife was walking along an aisle at a Target back in February 2018. While searching for supplies for baking, she reportedly stepped into cooking oil in the aisle. According to the couple's lawsuit, the woman then fell on the spray oil.

Failure to stay in one's lane may lead to motor vehicle accidents

A dad and his son have sadly lost their lives in a motor vehicle collision in Kentucky. The tragic accident happened on Kentucky Highway 290. Sometimes, these kinds of motor vehicle accidents are the result of a motorist's carelessness, which is grounds for litigation.

The recent accident took place at a little past 7 p.m. on a Friday. According to police, a man, 19, was driving along the highway in a truck with a trailer. However, he reportedly crossed the road's middle line. At that point, the 19-year-old man allegedly crashed into the motor vehicle of another man, 35.

Numerous motor vehicle accidents on I-75 involve trucks and rain

During rainy weather, it is not uncommon for accidents involving tractor-trailers to occur along Interstate 75 in Kentucky. In fact, since Oct. 2018, police have reported about a dozen of these big rigs crashing in rainy weather along a curve beneath an overpass in the Dixie Highway area. According to authorities, these motor vehicle accidents appear to happen after rain has been falling for a long while.

In this area of the interstate , drivers can see shattered concrete chunks from the center barrier of the roadway. These chunks apparently crumbled due to five separate crashes involving tractor-trailers. In fact, they have reportedly caused damage to five automobiles passing through the curve.

Man claims that fun center caused him to slip and fall

A man in another state recently claimed that an entertainment center's staff and owners caused him physical harm due to their carelessness. Specifically, he asserted that the center caused him to slip and fall and suffer injuries. He has thus filed a lawsuit against the center, seeking damages. In the same way, anyone who is hurt at an establishment in Kentucky due to its negligence has the right to seek justice in civil court.

The man who filed the lawsuit claimed that he was at a trampoline fun center for a birthday party one day when his slip-and-fall accident happened. He was reportedly attempting to go up an obstacle at the center. However, all of a sudden, he came across some beads on the floor. He asserted that the beads caused him to lose his balance and slip and fall.

Why hire a lawyer to handle your Kentucky immigration case?

The United States does not make it easy for people who want to come here from other countries. Those who want to work in the United States need to obtain special visas to do so, while those who want to live here permanently must go through a more complex immigration process.

Even those who have the support of an employer and who can pass a background check may find themselves struggling to complete the steps necessary to secure a visa or other documentation for work in the United States.

Fatal motor vehicle accidents often involve failure to yield

Two people's lives were recently cut short in a tragic left-turn crash involving two automobiles in Kentucky. In addition, five other people suffered injuries in the wreck. These types of motor vehicle accidents can easily occur as a result of a driver's carelessness, which is grounds for litigation.

The recent Kentucky crash occurred on a Saturday. According to police, a minivan was trying to make a left turn across a street to enter a driveway. However, during the turn attempt, the van crashed into an oncoming sport utility vehicle.

Wrong-way motor vehicle accidents may claim lives

Three people recently lost their lives in a tragic wrong-way car accident along Interstate 75 in Kentucky. Sometimes, these types of motor vehicle accidents happen due to a person's carelessness, which is grounds for civil litigation. For instance, in this accident situation, a woman was arrested for causing the three deaths, and therefore, she may face claims in civil court in addition to facing charges in criminal court.

The recent accident happened when police were chasing the woman, 42, who then decided to go the wrong way along the interstate. The woman was apparently going more than 90 miles per hour. She allegedly ended up striking two cars on the roadway.

Woman awarded $600K after mini-mart causes her to slip and fall

A jury in a different state recently awarded a woman $600,000 following an injury-causing accident at a small market. The jury determined that the market caused the woman to slip and fall by not removing ice from a sidewalk outside of the shop. Likewise, people in Kentucky who are injured as a result of a company's negligence have the right to seek to hold them accountable in civil court.

In the recent case, the woman asserted that she purchased lottery tickets at the market and then went outside. She said that is when she slipped and fell on ice that had accumulated on the sidewalk. However, the market's attorneys argued that there actually was no rain on the sidewalk when the alleged incident happened. In addition, the market's employees had no knowledge of the presence of ice on the sidewalk.

Woman awarded $1.47M after office causes her to slip and fall

A woman in another state was recently awarded over $1.47 million after suffering injuries at a dental office back in 2014. Specifically, the dental office caused her to slip and fall due to its failure to maintain safe property conditions. Likewise, individuals in Kentucky who suffer injuries on business properties due to the owners' negligence have the right to seek monetary damages in court.

In the recent out-of-state case, the woman was working with a dentist one day and suddenly stepped into water that was leaking from the office's sprinkler system. The woman then slipped and fell in the water. The fall caused the 55-year-old woman to suffer injuries to her back, which required several surgeries. However, the surgeries ended up not fixing the woman's problem.

Next steps after getting involved in a car accident

The car accident happens without warning. You never see the other vehicle as the driver runs the red light. All you know is that they hit the back of your car as it spins out of control in the intersection. You hear your passengers yelling in the back seat. Then the car comes to a stop in the rising dust on the side of a Kentucky road.

Now what? You have never been in a serious crash before. What should you do?
