Accidents involving multiple vehicles typically occur as a result of the carelessness and negligence of just one driver. Then, other negligent drivers pile into each other. When these types of accidents occur, both drivers and passengers suffer injuries. The legal landscape turns into a nightmare.

Nobody wants to compensate that victim for the injuries and damages suffered,

Before you go out bicycling,
Kentucky has some great country roads for those who love to ride their motorcycles. However, there are dangers that motorcyclists have to be aware of when venturing out in rural Kentucky. According to a study from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, a motorcycle rider is 28 times more likely to be killed in a crash than those of passenger vehicles.
One of the many dangers to motorcycle riders on rural roads is a head-on collision. They can happen in many different ways,
T-bone or broadside crashes are some of the most deadly crash types there are, and rural drivers are more likely to get into serious injury accidents according to a study from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The study says that while only 42 percent of drivers live in rural areas, the fatality rate is almost double that in urban areas.
One of the reasons for this is the T-bone accident. A T-bone crash occurs when a car hits another one in the side at a 90-degree angle.
If you’ve driven long, you’ve probably felt a that out-of-control slide when your car hydroplaned. Most of the time you slip a couple of feet and then your tires finds some road to grip, and you go on your way. But sometimes it doesn’t work out so well and the car slides off the road or into another car.

Broadside or T-bone crashes are some of the deadliest of all crash types. In 2018, side-impact crashes made up 23% or 5,350 deaths of those who died while riding in a passenger vehicle, according to a report from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.
Travelers on rural highways are more susceptible to high-injury broadside crashes because of the higher speed limit of most highways. Most of the rural highways have a speed limit of 50 mph or more, and when a car turns into the path of another vehicle going that fast,

Younger drivers have the highest fatality rates among all age groups, according to a study by the American Automobile Association. In fact, this trend continues for all drivers until they hit the age of 70. Young drivers simply don’t have the experience in how to drive defensively and look out for possible unseen or hard to see dangers.
