Share the road Sunday! 500 bicyclists to hit the roads in Hamilton & Boone County this Sunday

This Sunday is the 5th annual Rollfast Gran Fondo, a cycling event where 500 participants will either ride 25, 66, or 100-mile courses primarily through Hamilton and Boone County. This event is drawing elite cyclists from across the world, including a Tour de France competitor.

Single-car accidents not always the driver’s fault

Most car accidents involve a collision with another vehicle. There is a subset of accident, however, in which only one vehicle is involved. Injuries in these accidents are every bit as compensable as multiple-vehicle accident injuries.

The classic single-car accident involves a driver encountering something on the road that is not another vehicle. 

Traffic fatalities lower in first half of 2017; higher than 2015

The nonprofit National Safety Council, or NSC, has been tracking fatality trends and providing estimates for almost 100 years. This year's preliminary estimates bring us some good news and some bad news.

The good news is that deaths in motor vehicle accidents were down in the first half of this year. Unfortunately, the second half of the year tends to be more deadly than the first-and that's not the only bad news. According to the group, 2016's fatality numbers were 6 percent higher than 2015's and also represented the biggest two-year increase since 1964.

Consultant files suit after brain injury on construction site

Anyone in the Greater Indianapolis area who knows someone suffering from severe head trauma likely understands the long term impact on that person's life. Even when the victim is lucky enough to survive, a brain injury is often permanent and devastating, with lasting effects on the sufferer's life. Frequently, ongoing and expensive medical care and treatment is necessary, and many who have suffered a brain injury are never able to return to their job.

In another state, a consultant recently filed a lawsuit against a mixed-use construction site after he suffered a traumatic brain injury. The man was hired to provide consulting services for the defendant. The plaintiff claims that the defendant performed demolition or excavation work at the construction site that was unsafe and hazardous.

Hit and run accidents--No driver, no recovery? This common belief may not always be true.

A tow truck driver was severely injured overnight on I-70. As the truck driver was preparing to tow a disabled vehicle on the shoulder, a semi-tractor trailer failed to move over, striking the tow truck driver. The semi left the scene following the accident and still has not been located.

Rush hour? No worries

Rush hour is without a doubt the most stressful time to be on the road. Whether you’re heading into the office or checking out after a long day. The last thing you want is to be stuck in stop-and-go traffic.

Driving anxiety is at an all time high during peak travel hours. The increased volume of vehicles on the road coupled with nerve-racked drivers cutting you off and disobeying traffic laws is absurd. Just thinking about it fuels your road rage. And as tempting as it might be to fight back, you know it will only make matters worse.

Spinal cord injuries often require expensive, lifelong care

A spinal cord injury is defined as damage to any part of the spinal cord that results either from diseases like cancer or from trauma caused in accidents such as car crashes. While spinal cord injuries vary depending on the severity of the accident, they come with a variety of unpleasant symptoms. Thse injuries are typically permenant, and affect the injured and their families for the rest of their lives.

Symptoms can include anything from partial loss of motor control and sensory functions all the way up to loss of bladder and bowl control. They sometimes even go so far as to affect the biological systems in charge of regulating blood pressure, breathing and heart rate. Sadly, even for those Indiana individuals lucky enough to survive a spinal cord injury - which is certainly not always the case - many of experience chronic pain.

What Injury Lawyers Know About Truck Accidents That Can Save You Money

Most motorists are aware of the dangers of operating near semi-trucks. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that nearly 4,000 people were killed and another 83,000 injured in accidents involving large trucks in 2015. Due to the sheer size and weight of the average commercial truck, these types of accidents can be incredibly damaging. To make matters worse, multiple parties may be at fault for a crash. Understanding commercial trucking industry regulations and how they relate to the legal rights of vehicle drivers can make a difference when it comes to your recovery process and appropriate compensation.
