Young woman looking at phone while driving | Smartphones: Increasing Accidents and Raising RatesSmartphones may make our lives easier – but they are also making them more dangerous. A new survey by State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company found that smartphones may be responsible for increasing accidents and raising rates. Their survey discovered that 36% of all people admitted to texting behind the wheel and 29% admitted to surfing the web while driving. This was an alarming increase from previous years’ surveys. There are also more smartphone users taking part in these surveys than ever before. In 2011, just 52% of drivers surveyed owned a smartphone. In 2015, that number had increased to 88%. (more…)

Finding a repair shop after an accident can be difficult. The insurance company may “recommend” a shop to you, and that shop could be a good choice, or a not-so-good choice.

Biker in sunglasses and leather jacket on the road | Catastrophic Motorcycle Accidents Motorcycle accidents can have severe or fatal consequences due to the nature of the motorcycle, which leaves its rider vulnerable and unprotected when hit by over 3,000 pounds of steel and glass in the form of a car. Over 8.4 million motorcycles shared the road with passenger vehicles, trucks and buses in 2014, with over a million new motorcycles being purchased every year. As many as four to five thousand motorcyclists die each year in a motorcycle accident, with more and more of those being over the age of forty—the baby boomer generation. (more…)

The difficulties navigating what was once considered nothing more than an ordinary life can truly be unimaginable. Unfortunately, spinal cord injuries can be a common injury resulting from a motorcycle accident. Motorcycles have none of the protection that automobiles do—there is no steel cage, airbags and seat belt restraints to protect the body.  (more…)

Intersection Accidents Can Be Deadly…  

busy traffic intersection | Intersection Accidents Can Be Deadly Unfortunately, intersection accidents are among the most common—and the deadliest—type of automobile accidents in the United States. People tend to believe that a yellow light simply means they should speed up rather than stop, meaning they generally end up in the intersection on a solid red light and are hit by a car whose driver rightfully believes they have the right of way. Some estimates put intersection accidents at a full one third of the total number of accidents, and although some cities have installed red light cameras in an attempt to lessen the number of intersection accidents, the numbers haven’t come down.

How to Share the Road with Truck Drivers…  

truck-driver-in-front-of-truck | How to Share the Road with Truck DriversThe sheer size of commercial trucks makes them a special hazard on the roadways of America.

While you may consider commercial trucks to be huge, noisy and downright scary at times, the fact is that over 80 percent of our communities in the United States depend on truck drivers to deliver the goods we use every day. Commercial trucks really are the backbone of our transportation system, and they are here to stay.  (more…)

Injured in a Rental Car Accident? Now What?…  

Sad man having car trouble on the country road. With any car collision there is a certain protocol you must follow, however if you were driving a rental car at the time of the accident, you will likely have a few more steps to take care of. It can be very traumatic to be involved in an automobile accident when you are in an unfamiliar city, driving an unfamiliar car, and most likely on vacation. Following the accident, you must first see to any injuries which drivers or passengers sustained. If anyone needs to go to the hospital, make sure they receive appropriate medical treatment. Many times people don’t think they are hurt as badly as they really are, due to the adrenaline which floods their body at the time of the accident. This adrenaline can mask pain and other symptoms of injury, then later on the person realizes the full extent of their injuries. Many people are also hesitant to go to an unfamiliar hospital, so they tell themselves (and others) they are fine. (more…)
