Pedestrian Accidents, Car Accidents, and Motorcycle Accidents Increase with School Traffic

In many areas, Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer vacation and a return to school for children. Buses are on the road, recent permit and license holders are behind the wheel, and traffic congestion is at an all-time high. There is also a huge influx of students, teachers, and parents walking to and from schools. This can create hazardous conditions, leading to pedestrian accidents, car accidents, bicycle accidents, or motorcycle accidents.

Bicycle Accidents

With summer here, you and your friends and family are likely to be getting out and about more and more to enjoy the weather. While being outdoors and getting active are great ways to stay in shape and spend some leisure time, there are hazards to consider, particularly if cycling is something you enjoy.

April is Distracted Driving Month

In this day and age, with a small device, you can take your entire world along with you on the road. Whether you're heading to the office or home, the grocery store or your in-laws for the holidays, we have never been more available to the rest of the world 24/7. Because of this, drivers everywhere are driving distracted.

Can I be Blamed For An Accident Caused By Sun Glare?

Sun glare while driving can be deadly. If you've ever driven a car, there is a real chance that at some point you've experienced a moment where you simply couldn't see in front of you due to the blinding sun. And, it is well understood that it only takes the blink of an eye for an accident to occur. Sun glare can be highly dangerous and can bring about the same hazardous road conditions we see with rain, snow, ice and fog.

With Daylight Savings Come An Increase In Auto Accidents

Next week (March 13, 2016) marks the beginning of Daylight Savings Time, as we move our clocks ahead one hour. This also means one less hour of sleep for most of us Saturday night. But did you know it could also mean more accidents for you on the road?

After a Car Accident, Can I Be Compensated For My Pain And Suffering If I Have Limited Tort Insurance Coverage?

As you know, car insurance in any state can be costly. But getting injured in a car accident without having the appropriate auto insurance coverage can be even costlier. Imagine this - you're driving along and another driver, distracted by his ringing phone, two yelling kids in the backseat, and the fact that he's late for dinner, cuts across your lane and sideswipes your SUV into the guardrail. The police are called to the scene of the accident; statements are taken from both you and the other driver. He admits liability and is given a traffic citation for causing the accident. You are understandably disoriented, certainly shook up by what just occurred and, while you do not immediately feel pain, you are taken to the hospital at least for precautionary reasons. After 7 hours in the ER and a full workup, you are finally discharged, told to take Ibuprofen should you begin to experience body aches and pains and it is advised that you follow up with your primary doctor as soon as practicable.

What Should I do If I Get In A Car Accident?

This winter season sure got off to a blustering start with Winter Storm Jonas blanketing most of the East Coast with record-breaking snowfall. In the wake of the storm, there has been flooding, snow melting, and re-icing. Crews have been working to keep the roads safe and clean, but auto accidents are on the rise.

Designated Texter: The Hottest New Car Accessory

Certainly the term "designated driver" isn't new. If you're going out for a night on the town, expecting to consume a few alcoholic drinks, you designate someone to stay sober, don't drink and drive for fear of hurting yourself or someone else in an automobile accident. Let's not forget the likelihood of getting arrested for DUI and all the ramifications that come along with that including the loss of your license and often jail time.
