Do Criminal Charges Help my Personal Injury Case in Kentucky?

By Tiger on

If someone injures another person in an auto accident and is charged with a crime, many people wonder if their personal injury case just got easier. The answer is not really. Most states in the U.S. have a law that says that a charge or conviction in a criminal case doesn’t prove fault against the driver who was charged or convicted.

By Tiger on

After an accident, many people wonder if they can move their car, or are they supposed to wait for police to show up? What if the car is in one of the traffic lanes? For example, someone rear-ends another car on the freeway in the far right-hand lane and the cars are still driveable, some motorists will move out of the road onto the shoulder and wait for police.

By Tiger on

Payment calculators have been around for decades. For example, loan amortization schedules were in printed form long before the internet was ever used. A home buyer would simply refer to the amount of a mortgage, its interest rate and the number of years of the mortgage, and he or she could find the monthly principal and interest payment to the penny. People aren’t vacant land or improved real estate though. We consist of a brain, a spinal cord, nerves, a spine, bones, ligaments tendons, muscles and a heart with a circulatory system.

The Five Deadliest Bus Crashes in the U.S.

By Tiger on

When a disaster takes multiple lives, the pain of the loss transcends the families of the victims and impacts the community and even the nation. An airplane falls from the sky, a train derails into an icy river or a bus rolls over and catches fire. When these tragedies happen, everyone feels the loss and the devastation to the families and friends of those who perished.
