The worse happens: a drunk driver strikes your vehicle and you and/or any of your passengers are injured because of it. The drunk driver is apprehended and taken into custody. You are taken to the hospital for personal injuries. What happens next?woman-in-shock-after-car-accident-300x200

For many people who are hit by a drunk driver and survive, they often think they can’t file a claim if the driver has been charged and is undergoing a criminal investigation. That is far from the truth. Here’s what you should know if you are in a car accident caused by a drunk driver and sustain injuries, particularly brain traumaspinal cord injuries, or multiple bone injuries common to drunk driving accidents.

Motorcycle accidents can be caused by any number of things, from car drivers not paying attention to motorcycles to motorcyclists driving too fast for the road or environmental conditions. Auto accidents do not even have to be caused by one motorist or rider but can be caused by the combination of errors and negligence. Determining fault can get tricky. It is, however, necessary to determine fault if you want compensation.motorcycle-wreck-300x200

Here’s how fault is determined in motorcycle accidents.

Summer is usually time for construction, maintenance, or repairs on highways and interstates. It’s also time for road trips. The combination of the two can be deadly. So, when a car accident happens in a work zone, who is liable for it?

Who is liable for car accidents in work zones?

A car accident in a work zone is like any other car accident really: whoever was at fault is liable. Two prime suspects for liability include:

  1. the driver; and
  2. the construction company. work-zone--300x225

The At-Fault Driver

Many work zone accidents are the result of negligence, and examples of driver negligence include:

  • multi-car collision after the first car collides with construction equipment;
  • rear-end collision while cars are moving slowly or are stopped and are bumper to bumper;
  • collisions caused by distracted drivers who fail to see warning signs, construction workers, etc.

When a driver is at fault for the car accident, you can file a claim or lawsuit against his or her auto insurer as well as the driver directly, depending on the circumstances.

Of all the cargo you transport in your car or truck, your children are the most precious and irreplaceable. Unfortunately, children are also the most vulnerable to injuries or even death when they are in a motor vehicle accident. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), injuries are the leading cause of death for children in the United States, and motor vehicle crashes are the top causes of child injuries. But the good news is that you can help prevent your child from suffering a serious injury if you are in a crash by making sure your child is restrained in a proper car seat or booster seat with a seat belt.seat-belt-children-300x200

Merging auto accidents are accidents that occur when one car swipes another vehicle either from the side or sometimes from the back while merging into another lane. Merging onto another road or into another lane is something that happens on a regular and daily basis, so these accidents happen rather frequently. They can result in property damage, bodily injuries, and/or fatalities. It depends on the circumstances of the accident, but of course, speed always plays an important role in how severe or not an accident is.merging-lane_change_accident-300x200

Experiencing a car accident is always traumatizing, even when the damage is minimal and the injuries appear insignificant. When it’s the latter case, most people are inclined to share car insurance information and then be on their way. But sometimes, even in minor collisions, it may be important to see a doctor directly after the accident, and here are a few reasons why.lower-back-pain-after-car-accident-300x148

Think about your commute to and from work. How many intersections do you have to go through to get to your destination? According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), one-quarter of traffic fatalities in the United States happen in intersections, making them one of the most dangerous aspects of driving. Vehicles are not the only things passing through intersections; pedestrians and bicyclists also use intersections as they make their way to a destination.intersection-collision-in-california-300x151

We’ve all probably had this experience. You are out and about driving on a Granite State road, when suddenly there’s another vehicle behind you, and the driver of that vehicle is driving aggressively and following way too close for your comfort. Maybe they are in a hurry and impatient because you, the safety-first driver, are driving the speed limit. Or maybe they are just a jerk and they like intimidating other drivers while they are in their almost-monster-sized truck. You gently tap your brakes a few times to indicate that they need to back off, but this only makes them follow even closer. A quick glance into your rear-view mirror and you see that the driver is either waving their arms in frustration or giving you “the bird.”road-rage-300x203

Simple incidents like this can quickly escalate into serious provocations with harmful outcomes. In April 2019, two men driving along Route 4 in Grafton, New Hampshire got into some kind of altercation as they drove, which ended in a minor collision. Both men then got out of their cars and continued their argument, when finally one man pulled out a handgun and shot the other in the stomach. The man who was shot survived, and the trigger puller was charged with first-degree assault. An investigation into the gunman showed he has a history of road rage, including seven separate other road rage aggressions–four of which happened along the same Route 4 just weeks before he shot his victim.
