Kentucky parking lot accident proves fatal

In Kentucky, car crashes are sadly a common occurrence. While many drivers are diligent and careful, there are still those who drive carelessly without due consideration for the rules of the road and the possible hazards they could encounter. Some even choose to go too fast or to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Unfortunately, the consequences can be devastating.

Even when no one has done anything wrong, accidents can still occur, and it is not only the occupants of vehicles who can be hurt as a result. One accident that occurred in a Kentucky parking lot is believed to have possibly been the result of the driver experiencing a seizure. Sadly, an 89-year-old woman was passing near the vehicle as it was reversing.

The elderly lady was struck by the car, later dying in the hospital from her injuries. She is reported to have suffered multiple blunt force trauma. The driver was also transported to the hospital and is alleged to have experienced further seizures while there.

Sadly, incidents like this occur all too often leaving families unsure what to do or where to turn. It is always difficult to adjust to the loss of a loved one, especially when it is so sudden and unexpected. Moreover, while you may be keen to seek justice, it can seem like a lot to deal with while you are grieving.

Fortunately, an attorney may be able to help you. Whether you want to pursue a payout from your insurance provider or make a claim against whoever was responsible for the accident, your attorney might be able to provide the advice and support you require, and help you reach a fair resolution to your case.
