According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, close to 95 percent of all motor vehicle accidents are caused by human error. It is human to make mistakes, but that doesn't change the fact that we should all practice attentiveness and good judgment behind the wheel. Unfortunately, some drivers choose to drive recklessly or in a high-risk manner. Such behavior can increase the odds of auto accidents.

Winter weather is here. Across our region of West Virginia and Kentucky, temperatures are chilly, and rain and snow are likely. As locals, we're prepared for driving in these conditions, but it doesn't hurt to brush up on some basic crash prevention tips. We've outlined them below.
Attorney Mark Troy strongly urges you to consider adding adequate undersinsured (UIM) motorist coverage to your West Virginia or Kentucky auto insurance policy.
The leading traffic safety agency says traffic accident fatalities in 2017 were down after two years of increases. While this is a promising statistic, there were still tens of thousands of people killed in crashes last year.
In 2016, motor vehicle accidents involving distracted driving caused the deaths of 3,450 people. One life lost by this completely preventable behavior would be too many. Although texting and cell phone use are two of the primary types of distraction, they are not the only types. Arguing with your passengers can be dangerously distracting, as can breaking up a fight between children in the back seat. Eating or drinking can be distracting. Applying makeup or adjusting a GPS is distracting.
The aftermath of a car accident can be isolating, frustrating and overwhelming. You may be unsure of what to do next. Please watch attorney Mark Troy's video to find out what 5 things you should do after a crash.
