Have you or a loved one been injured in an accident at an intersection in Louisville or across Kentucky? The most serious injury accidents happen at intersections according to the most recent data provided by the Kentucky State Police. Forty two percent of all fatal accidents and more than forty seven percent of injuries happen at an angle, either at an intersection or when a car pulls into the path of oncoming cars, trucks or motorcycles.
The injuries sustained at an intersection in Louisville and across Kentucky can be quite severe. There is less physical protection in a vehicle during side-impact or t-bone collisions. These accidents often result in injuries and broken bones, such as dislocation of the shoulders, and fractured arms, hips and legs due to the forces associated with the impact. The side-to-side movement of a driver and passengers in these accidents often results in head injury and soft tissue injuries as the occupants strike side supports and other obstructions within the vehicle.
It is important to immediately seek medical attention after any accident, even if you feel you have simply sustained bumps and bruises. Damage to the discs and vertebrae in the neck and back may take weeks or even months to present after the accident. You might feel fine today, and three weeks later you are flat on your back unable to move and in immense pain.
