Many people in Kentucky take advantage of the Labor Day holiday weekend to spend time socializing with friends and family. However, innocent gatherings can take a dangerous and potentially deadly turn when people consume too much alcohol and then attempt to drive home. Preventing drunk driving accidents is an objective in which many organizations have an interest. However, different organizations are taking different approaches to address the issue of drunk driving prevention.
The roadways around Covington and Cincinnati are often crowded places. While collisions involving two vehicles are common, multi-car pileups occasionally occur. For example, in May, six individuals sustained some type of injury when a wrong-way driver caused a four-car pileup on the Ronald Reagan Highway.
It goes without saying that your divorce will bring with is several changes. Yet one that many of the clients in Covington that we here at The Berger Firm have worked with in the past have overlooked is healthcare (or more specifically, who will handle the costs of yours and your children’s healthcare once your divorce becomes final). During your marriage, you may have been covered under your spouse’s group health plan. Your divorce will almost certainly affect that coverage; the question is to what extent?
Collisions between cars and motorcycles in Covington often result in the motorcyclists involved suffering serious injuries. The lack of protection afforded by motorcycles makes them more susceptible to injury in such incidents. That may lead to an unwarranted belief that such accidents are almost always the fault of the motorists involved. Yet in many cases, motorcyclists may indeed be the ones to blame. Practices such as lane-splitting or trying to maneuver motorcycles tightly between vehicles may increase the risk of an accident. While motorists should indeed make an increased effort to be aware of motorcyclists on the road, motorcyclists are also charged with avoiding reckless behavior.
