Reckless driving accidents in KY, TN and Indiana put everyone at risk
Nearly every 15 minutes, someone sustains an injury in an auto accident in Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana. And in case of Kentucky, auto accident statistics resulted in the state being ranked the 10th most dangerous state to drive in, according to a study done by the Trust for America’s Health based on data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control. In 2011, a total of 721 people died in auto accidents in Kentucky.
In many instances, auto accidents can be traced back to reckless driving. There’s a wide range of ways reckless drivers can cause a car accident:
- Texting while driving
- Following another vehicle too close
- Failing to stop for a stop sign or a traffic light
- Eating while driving
- Erratically changing lanes
- Weaving in and out of traffic
Often, such auto accidents seem straightforward. But the other driver may try to claim you caused the accident. And even if the other driver admits to wrongdoing, his or her insurance company and their teams of lawyers can likely do everything they can to avoid paying you the full amount you rightfully deserve.
