Police may now be held liable for damages if their negligent high-speed chases lead to the injury or death of innocent people. This is true due to a landmark judgment recently made by the Kentucky Supreme Court that overruled a 1952 decision granting blanket immunity to police against damages and injuries suffered by someone as a result of a police chase. Victims who suffered injury or the family members of victims that were killed during a police chase can sue the police officer involved or the department.
We all love the convenience of modern technology. While behind the wheel though, that new gadget could lead to a serious crash. Safety officials are sounding the alarm on distracted driving.
Impaired driving can cause permanent disability and even death to the accident victim. It brings extreme pain and suffering for the surviving family members of the accident victim. Impaired driving, you may call it driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated, is considered a serious offence across the United States and the offenders are punished according to the laws of the state. If a person is caught driving under the influence, the authorities may suspend the driving license of the driver, confiscate the vehicle and impose other strict penalties as well.
