Passenger injuries in car accidents are common

Motor vehicle accident injuries are not limited to the drivers of the cars or trucks involved. In fact, passengers in these vehicles can sustain severe, catastrophic injuries as well. Depending on the force of the collision, a passenger runs the risk of suffering a fatal injury in a serious car accident.

Do stricter nighttime driving rules lead to safer teen drivers?

There are many concerns that can arise regarding teen drivers when it comes to nighttime driving. For one, visibility tends to not be as good when driving at night, which could be problematic for a young driver who is still trying to get the hang of driving. Also, nighttime driving can sometimes create a drowsy driving risk for teens at a stage in their driving experience when they may not be that good at gauging if they are too tired to drive.

All accident scars may not be physical in nature - Part II

During our last post, we began a discussion about the kinds of trauma that motor vehicle accident victims may experience. Certainly, many accident victims weather physical trauma and are left with physical injuries. But not all accident-related trauma is physical in nature. Oftentimes, individuals are left with psychological and emotional wounds that may require much time and effort in order to heal.

All accident scars may not be physical in nature - Part I

We recently began a discussion entitled “Why the Tracy Morgan truck accident settlement matters.” During that discussion, we observed that the settlement which was recently reached in the accident case involving Tracy Morgan serves as an excellent illustration of an important point. The media likes to report on cases that are particularly contentious and that result in significant jury awards. However, the majority of cases do not result in a jury verdict. The majority of cases, including the Tracy Morgan accident case, settle. And settlement does not render these cases any less important than those which end in a jury verdict.

Anti-DUI prototype car unveiled by NHTSA

We have previously observed that it is surprisingly easy for responsible adults to unintentionally drive while illegally drunk. Currently, the law generally allows individuals aged 21 years and older to have some alcohol in their bloodstreams while operating motor vehicles. What is critical is that one’s blood alcohol content does not rise above the legal limit. Because alcohol metabolizes differently in the body based on a number of factors, some adults may feel sober even when their BAC exceeds the legal limit.

'Coming up' in auto safety regulations - Part II

During our last post, we began a discussion about the latest efforts of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. We noted that because this agency is most directly tasked with ensuring that motorists remain safe on American streets that it is uniquely concerned with a host of auto safety issues. Keeping abreast of the NHTSA’s efforts can be beneficial for motorists concerned about the latest trials and trends in auto safety.

'Coming up' in auto safety regulations - Part I

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may or may not be an agency that our readers are familiar with. The NHTSA is the federal agency most directly tasked with ensuring that automobiles on American roads are safe and that fatal auto accidents are prevented when possible. Although some of our readers may have never heard of the NHTSA before, this agency likely makes a host of decisions on an annual basis that directly impact our readers' lives and their travel-related safety.

The benefits of purchasing more than minimum insurance coverage

When you think about auto insurance, what emotion does that thought inspire? Does it make you frustrated? Tired? Does it even make you sad that you spend all that money on "maybe"? Auto insurance is certainly not a "fun" purchase. But it is absolutely a necessary one. Not only does the law require you to have current auto insurance in order to legally operate your vehicle, this kind of insurance protects you from potential financial ruin in the wake of an accident.

What are the cellphone rules for drivers in West Virginia?

Car accidents happen for a wide variety of reasons, but one of the most infuriating causes of a car accident is texting while driving. Such a blatant disregard for other people's safety -- and for the task at hand -- is just plain stupid, let alone a perfect way to make yourself liable for any accident that you may be involved in. That's why many states were quick to ban texting while driving and cellphone use while driving in the years that followed the cellphone boom.

Minor auto accidents can still have big impacts

Pretty much everyone understands that major car accidents can have very big impacts on those involved. However, people may be prone to underestimating the impacts of minor car accidents. Some may assume that a car accident that is relatively minor couldn't possibly have any significant impacts.
