Are hit-and-run accidents more common in urban locations?

With respect to motor vehicle collisions, there are a plethora of issues to take into consideration. For example, some crashes are caused by intoxicated drivers and the details surrounding one crash may vary considerably in comparison to another accident. For example, someone may be struck by a reckless driver who took off in a hit-and-run crash, leaving a victim at the site of the accident and showing no regard for the hardships they may be facing. Moreover, it may be helpful to go over statistics on these types of collisions.

How dangerous is fog with respect to road conditions?

From heavy snow to those who make the decision to drive while intoxicated, there are all sorts of threats that drivers face on the road. However, fog can be especially dangerous, and some drivers do not recognize how risky it can be to drive while visibility is low. Sometimes, people take to the road when it is foggy because they have to take care of responsibilities in the morning or return home after work. Sadly, many people in this position have lost their lives or suffered devastating injuries in accidents.

Can an accident be caused by driving on autopilot?

Our law firm has gone over many motor vehicle accident causes and responsible drivers are well aware of the dangers associated with drunk driving, speeding, and other types of reckless behavior. However, motor vehicle crashes take place for a plethora of reasons and some are less conspicuous. For example, someone who is very familiar with a route they drive on a daily basis may become less attentive or ignore hazards because they are driving on autopilot—and we are not referring to self-driving vehicles.

Recovering from a high-profile car crash

Whenever an accident takes place on the road, the outcome will likely create multiple problems for those involved. For example, someone may struggle with their insurance company or have difficulty with physical pain and stress brought on by the crash. For some people, however, these accidents can be especially hard, such as those who are involved in a high-profile car accident.

Cosmetic concerns after a collision

Our blog has addressed some of the different consequences that car accident victims and their loved ones may face, whether someone breaks a bone or passes away in a crash. Sometimes, these accidents bring on other types of hardships that can also be devastating, even though they are not given as much attention. For example, an auto accident victim may have cosmetic concerns due to scars, disfiguring facial injuries, and other issues. These types of injuries can be especially upsetting for victims and may have a negative impact on their lives in different ways.

Car crashes and the consequences of whiplash

When a motor vehicle wreck happens, those involved may sustain various injuries, whether they break a bone or suffer brain damage after hitting their head. However, whiplash is a very common auto accident injury and it is important for you to understand the potential consequences of this injury. Regrettably, whiplash is not uncommon, and many people have had their lives virtually destroyed because of the poor decisions of a negligent driver.

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.
