Holding drowsy and buzzed truck drivers accountable

Indiana is called the Crossroads of America for good reason, as several traffic corridors, heading both east and west and north and south, cross this state. Even here in the southern part of the state, there are lots of truckers and other commercial vehicles passing through on their way to pick up and drop off loads.

Major Indiana truck accident leaves four dead

A recent truck accident on a major highway in another part of Indiana left four people dead and also attracted the attention of the national news media. If anything, the tragedy shows the importance of a trucker's being always mindful of what is going on ahead of him or her, as no one can assume that highway traffic will not suddenly come to a standstill even outside of an urban area.

Textalyzer technology aims to curb distracted driving

For years, safety advocates have warned of the dangers of new forms of distracted driving, particularly the use of smart phones while driving. Activists, law enforcement officials and lawmakers all over the country have tried various approaches to make drivers avoid texting or checking social media while driving so that they can concentrate on the road. Legislators in some states are considering a new approach they call the textalyzer.

Police officer, pedestrians injured in crash

People who live in the Louisville area on either side of the Ohio River probably realize, at least intuitively, that they need to be on the lookout for accident scenes and stalled vehicles. Usually, there are people that are either still in or close to the vehicles following an incident. Moreover, police officers frequently respond, and they also are either in or near their cruisers.

Taking a few minutes to brush up on what you should do if this occurs can help you to feel better prepared for dealing with the aftermath of a semitruck crash.

Helping you hold a negligent driver liable in a car accident

Everyday Indiana residents rely on automobiles to get around. While motor vehicles are a reliable and often necessary consumer good in the lives of Americans, they can also pose many risks and dangers. Although drivers are aware that there are rules of the road and they have a duty to drive safe, unfortunately not all drivers do this. Thus, negligent, distracted and reckless drivers are the cause of serious and fatal crashes across the nation.

Warmer spring weather means more motorcycles on the roads

As the long dark cold days of winter start to appear in our rearview and brighter warmer sunny days are on the horizon as we move toward spring, new hazards may present themselves on the roads. Warmer weather in general, whether it is here in New Albany, Indiana, Louisville, Kentucky or anywhere in the area tends to bring people outdoors. We will see more joggers and cyclers, more kids playing in their yards and more motorcyclists on the roads.

What to do if you're injured by someone else in an auto accident

Driving is a risky behavior. While the vast majority of people arrive at their destination safely, every time you drive you incur substantial risk. With good driving practices, you can reduce the chance of an accident. However, no matter how safely you drive, you can still get into an accident with another driver who is negligent. Sometimes, bad weather can result in a collision. Sometimes, the other driver's negligence results from distraction, either from a cellphone, passengers or perhaps a snack. In some cases, the other driver was driving erratically due to being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

As hit-and-run shows, pedestrian accidents can be deadly

With Indiana car accidents involving a bicyclist or a pedestrian, there is a significant chance that there will be major injuries and even death. The vulnerability of those who are not riding in a vehicle places them in serious jeopardy in a crash. Because motor vehicle accidents can cause so much damage to an individual and a family, it is important that those who were affected know what to do in its aftermath. This is particularly true in the event of a hit-and-run with a pedestrian.
