Drivers around Lexington can be careless and miss seeing other vehicles, even in broad daylight. Those mistakes are only magnified at night when motorists seem to show even less attention to the roads and cause unavoidable collisions.
Perhaps it’s a reliance on the headlights that should actually make missing spotting another vehicle almost impossible. Yet, experts say that drivers can sometimes misjudge the distance of another vehicle when looking into headlights. Careless drivers can also be proceeding in a reckless manner that gives them little time to correct a mistake.
If every extra look in all directions and every opportunity to slow down is taken, it’s a small price to pay if accidents are prevented and injuries are avoided completely.

Assistance for Injured Victims in Lexington Collisions
Victims can endure serious injuries in collisions and it should be the insurance companies for at-fault drivers that step up to provide help at such a difficult time. Victims and their families will face the costs of emergency response, hospital bills, and even have to make up for the loss of income suffered while the victim is out of work.
These hardships and others can be listed in a claim for damages against an insurance provider. This civil claim demands help for all medical expenses suffered now and any expected in the future. This would cover the need for surgeries in the months and years to come.
It would also help with the costs of a physical disability. Such a serious injury can greatly change a victim’s home life and even leave him or her without the ability to perform his or her prior job. Any settlement claim from an insurance company would have to address these potential costs that can extend over a lifetime.
