Some Louisville, Kentucky, residents may be aware that many companies have been aggressively developing and testing cars that are capable of doing most functions without a driver. Whether these vehicles can do so safely, however, is another matter.
As in the case of other states, police in Kentucky can assume a person is legally drunk and thus subject to a DUI charge when a motorist in Louisville has over .08 blood alcohol content. This is an important legal tool for police, since it allows them to pursue drunk driving more aggressively.
Many personal injury attorneys in the Louisville area will no doubt brag about how they are not afraid to take a case to trial and fight for their clients so that these car accident victims get all of the compensation to which they are entitled.
Louisville, Kentucky, residents who have been seriously injured in car accidents probably have little time to think about the nitty gritty details of the law and legal principles. They just want someone to hold the negligent driver who caused the accident accountable and to get compensation for the medical bills, lost wages and other losses which they did nothing or very little to deserve.
In our last post, we talked about distracted driving accidents and how there are thousands of people that die under these tragic circumstances every year. This problem is going to be with us for some time as we wait for self-driving vehicles to be available for purchase and use. Until then, we have to recognize that there are some things that we can do to improve road safety.
