Truck drivers and commutes to be studied by FMCSA

Commercial truck drivers in Kentucky and elsewhere around the country will soon be asked to participate in a survey regarding their commuting time in their personal vehicles. The survey, which is to be conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, is intended to determine how often truckers' journeys to their jobs take longer than two and a half hours. The agency also stated that after the survey has been completed, it plans to examine how safety and driver fatigue are affected by excessive commuting.

Key tips to remember during settlement negotiations

The end of a marriage can be a difficult time for couples in Kentucky. Not only do spouses have to deal with the emotional fallout, but the practical logistics of divorce can also present many challenges. Negotiating with a former partner about the divorce settlement can be challenging and complex. However, an arrangement will be necessary for both parties to settle and move on.

Timely action may be necessary after a car crash

Kentucky residents that have been in a car accident may debate whether to report it. If they do choose to report an accident that they have been in, it is best they do so as soon as possible. In some cases, it may be a good idea to report the accident when it happens. This may be done by calling a 24-hour hotline or using a mobile app provided by the car insurance company.

When ridesharing companies are involved in accidents

Kentucky residents who use ridesharing transportation might wonder about liability issues if an accident occurs. With companies like Lyft and Uber, drivers are classified as independent contractors rather than employees. This means any suits following an accident would likely be filed against drivers instead of a company.

Divorces could start early in 2018

For many people living in Kentucky, January is a time of new beginnings. In some cases, this means making the decision to leave a marriage that is no longer working. While divorce is never easy, there are some things that spouses can do to make the process less painful and financially devastating.
