Another year has come and gone, and Kentucky residents may be taking stock of their lives as they prepare to spend the holidays with their families and friends. As they gather to enjoy good food and good company, they may reflect on the good experiences and bad times that came to pass in 2019. For those who suffered losses and injuries in motor vehicle accidents, 2020 may be an uncertain year when it comes to their finances and health.
The trauma of a car accident can inflict severe pain and suffering on the health of a victim in Kentucky. While some accident victims are able to walk away from crashes without experiencing significant physical harm, others are taken from the scenes of crashes with life-threatening injuries. Oftentimes, when victims suffer serious injuries in motor vehicle accidents, those injuries affect their heads and their backs.
Victims of car accidents can suffer a multitude of injuries that can leave them sore, unable to work or even fighting for their lives. When car accidents happen, victims should know that they may have legal options.
Drivers and other front-seat vehicle passengers have received the benefit of airbags and seatbelts, which together operate to keep a person in the proper position in a car crash. However, according to an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study, rear passengers have not received these protections in car accidents.
