Who Is at Fault for a Sideswipe Accident?

Published on Jul 26, 2023 at 9:33 pm in Car Accidents.

Who Is at Fault for a Sideswipe Accident?
Was your car sideswiped by another vehicle? Sideswiping occurs when the side of one vehicle scrapes along the side of another. This type of collision happens between vehicles that are traveling in the same direction, although the struck vehicle may be either moving or stationary.

Not typically as deadly as other types of traffic crashes, a sideswipe accident can certainly still leave you with costly property damage and even severe, debilitating injuries. When you’ve been hurt by the actions of another motorist, being able to conclusively prove who is at fault for your sideswipe accident becomes a central part of your recovery journey.

What Happens if a Mail Truck Gets Into an Accident?

What Happens if a Mail Truck Gets Into an Accident
We rely on the timely and reliable delivery services provided by the United States Postal Service (USPS). While this is an invaluable service that virtually every person in Kentucky has access to, we must remember that the mail trucks we rely on are driven by human beings—and human beings make mistakes.

So what happens if a mail truck gets into an accident? Unlike typical motor vehicle accidents, matters of liability are much more complex when a government entity or employee is involved.

Key Highlights

  • The United States Postal Service (USPS) is liable for accidents involving their mail delivery trucks.
  • Administrative claims are a necessary prerequisite to filing a lawsuit against USPS.
  • Filing a lawsuit in federal court may require the guidance of an attorney with specialized expertise.

Golden Law Office Asks for Information Regarding Murder of Amber Spradlin

Yesterday afternoon, a press conference was held at the Floyd County Courthouse in Prestonsburg, Kentucky to discuss the murder investigation of Amber Spradlin, a 38-year-old woman who was found dead at a home on Arkansas Creek on June 18th. There are many questions left unanswered regarding her death. If you’re interested in watching the press conference, you may do so here.

Amber Spradlin’s body was found at a horrific, bloody scene. Foul play was suspected early on, but other than that, hardly any details about her death were made public. According to a family member at the press conference, Amber was attacked and violently stabbed at least 11 times. Multiple devastating wounds were found on her head and neck, and part of the murder weapon was even found inside her face. Her body was found in a home belonging to local dentist Michael McKinney, but no details have been released regarding why she was there or who was with her at the time of her death.

Filing a personal injury lawsuit is often the most effective way to secure compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and other damages caused by a car accident. Proving to the insurance company that the other driver was at fault and therefore liable for all of your damages is not easy, though. 

Civil cases like car accident claims require you to prove your case by providing a preponderance of the evidence. This is different than the proof requirements in a criminal case, which must be beyond a reasonable doubt. A preponderance of the evidence simply means that you must demonstrate that your claim is more likely true than not.
