Nausea following a motor vehicle crash

When a traffic collision occurs, the accident can affect those involved in a multitude of ways. Even in the absence of physical injuries that are immediately obvious, such as a broken bone, the collision could affect victims in other ways. For example, someone might feel nauseous following the accident. In some instances, these feelings are simply the result of extreme stress. However, feeling nauseous after a motor vehicle collision could also be an indicator that someone has sustained brain trauma.

GPS and distracted driving crashes

We have analyzed motor vehicle collisions from many viewpoints, whether they are the result of someone’s decision to drive inebriated or ice on the roads. However, distracted driving is especially rampant and there are many different reasons why drivers take their eyes or attention away from the road. For example, some people might become distracted while they are trying to use their GPS.

The link between social media and crashes

In recent years, an incredible number of people have started using social media on a daily basis. From following other accounts to uploading videos and pictures of their own, there has been a significant amount of activity on various digital platforms. Unfortunately, there are some potential downsides that come with this rapid advancement of social media, such as an increased risk of distracted driving. Our law office knows how challenging life often is for distracted driving crash victims and we believe they need a voice.

Different ways that animals can cause a crash

On the road, all sorts of dangers may lie around the corner, from ice to a drunk driver who veers into your lane. However, it is important to be aware of some of the other potential hazards that are out there, such as animals. Our law office knows that animals can cause motor vehicle wrecks in many ways and we would like to draw attention to some in order to help readers reduce the chances of a collision.

When a traffic accident upends your career

People realize that motor vehicle collisions frequently bring a number of consequences, such as broken bones or the loss of life. With that said, a traffic wreck can have other ramifications, which may not be clear right away. For example, someone’s career may be thrown off course due to injuries they sustained in the wreck. Furthermore, someone whose job duties involve driving, such as a trucker or a taxi driver, might have difficulty from a mental standpoint.

Drowsy driving and graveyard shifts

Drivers become tired for numerous reasons, such as sleep loss or taking a certain medication. Sometimes, this drowsiness is short-term, such as a driver being tired due to missing sleep one night, while others may suffer from chronic sleep deprivation or challenges that leave them tired on a daily basis. Moreover, work can make people tired, especially for those who work an excessive amount of overtime or are required to work throughout the night.

Handling an accident while traveling

People find themselves involved in motor vehicle crashes in many different scenarios. Sometimes, the wreck only involves one vehicle, while other accidents may occur under unique circumstances, such as in the middle of a vacation. Whether you are traveling in another country, outside of the state, or even on a day trip within your state, car accidents can be especially complicated when you are away from home.

Can car crashes cause panic disorder?

Many people are aware that traffic accidents can lead to broken bones, medical expenses, and lost lives. However, it is vital to bear in mind that these collisions can also generate psychological challenges for victims. From panic disorders to depression, it is pivotal for those who were struck by a reckless driver to focus on recovering from the accident in all ways. Regrettably, some of the unseen consequences of traffic collisions can be incredibly overwhelming for the victims of these wrecks and those they love.

Car Accidents and social media

In the digital age, it’s easy to post things online and share information with friends, family members, and strangers. However, it’s crucial to be careful about the type of information you share, especially if it could potentially be used against you. After a motor vehicle crash, it’s important to be careful what you post on social media sites and other online platforms. For example, you may not want to share certain details about the accident or your life in the immediate aftermath of the accident.

Recovering from an accident that took place on Halloween

When it comes to holiday-related motor vehicle accidents, many people recognize the potential dangers associated with the Fourth of July and New Year's Eve. However, some do not realize that all sorts of holidays, including Halloween, can increase the chances of an accident in different ways. If you were hurt in a crash that took place during Halloween, you could be struggling with a wide range of mental, physical, and financial problems and should examine your options. Unfortunately, these types of crashes take place for an array of reasons and will continue to leave innocent people with injuries and even claim lives in years to come.
