Whiplash can make your life difficult after a crash

You were at a stop light when you heard screeching brakes behind you. The driver hadn't seen you at the light ahead, because she was too busy texting her friends. You knew the impact was coming, and in an instant, you were thrown forward. Your airbags deployed. You and your passengers are okay, but you did suffer some injuries.

Riding in the rain: What motorcyclists should consider

Rain has been falling rapidly in the state, and that means many people have had to adjust their riding styles. When it comes to riding a motorcycle in the rain, it's important to know exactly how to ride to be safe without sliding or getting into an accident.

What are the elements of a wrongful death case?

When a loved one is killed in an accident, the surviving spouse or family members have a right to file a wrongful death claim against the party responsible. Most of the time, these lawsuits come after a criminal trial. For example, if someone is murdered, the family may pursue a wrongful death claim against the person they believed caused their loved one's death. However, these also occur after traffic accidents or medical errors that result in deaths, too.

Why are sport-utility vehicles so dangerous to other drivers?

One of the major risks of driving a sport-utility vehicle (SUV) is the risk of a rollover accident. These vehicles are tall, which creates a higher risk of sideways forces pushing them onto their sides. Rollover crashes occur in only around three percent of serious collisions, but they pose a major threat to the victims inside the SUV and inside other vehicles impacted by the crash.

Sometimes riding a bike can be hazardous to your health

Do you ride a bicycle for your health? Do you ride one to help the environment? Whether you ride a bicycle for exercise, as a mode of transportation or both, anytime you ride near traffic, your ride could quickly turn into a catastrophe. If an accident occurs, you could suffer serious injuries since riding a bicycle does not provide you much protection from the impact of a vehicle. Where a vehicle driver could walk away without an injury, you could end up facing a lengthy recovery, along with permanent injuries.

What should you do if you're involved in a motorcycle crash?

If you're in a motorcycle crash, there are several things you should do. First, you should make sure you are okay and that anyone else in the collision is also physically okay. If not, call 911 and wait for medical help to arrive. If you have the ability to do so, you should render aid to anyone who is injured.
