Kentucky car accidents: DUI factor in tragedy

Being notified of the unexpected death of a loved one is understandably an emotional shock. Loved ones are likely to experience a myriad of emotions, including anger if it is suspected that the negligent actions of another person may have caused the loss. Car accidents can often result in unexpected tragedy due to the negligence of another person, including speeding, distracted driving, driving under the influence and/or other means of negligent driving. Sadly, one Kentucky family was recently notified of their loved one's death following her tragic collision.

The 24-year-old victim was stopped at a traffic light when the accident occurred. Unknown to her, a woman apparently driving under the influence approached the same intersection and did not come to stop. The other 47-year-old woman rear-ended the younger woman's vehicle, and the impact propelled both vehicles into the middle of the intersection.

While the older woman only suffered minor injuries, the younger woman suffered serious injuries. She did not survive long enough to make it to a medical facility. The older woman has been officially charged with a DUI and murder as a result of the woman's death.

Tragic car accidents such as this one often jolt families into grief, multiple decisions about burial and unexpected burial expenses. The civil court system allows victims or family members of victims to seek compensation from suspected negligent parties through a wrongful death claim. A Kentucky attorney can advise accident victims and/or family members of deceased victims of their options after reviewing all the available evidence in a case.
