Recovering from a crash as a newlywed

Moving forward from a motor vehicle wreck can be incredibly challenging for any victim, but some people have an especially hard time when they find themselves in this position. For example, those who recently got married may be devastated by a motor vehicle collision, not only because of serious injuries and financial challenges but because plans (such as going on a honeymoon or having a child) may be derailed by the accident. If you recently tied the knot and have been involved in a collision, it is very important to be aware of your legal options and your rights.

Why is speeding so dangerous?

Of all the risky driving behaviors one could partake in, speeding is among the most deadly. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, speeding was cited in over 26% of all traffic deaths occurring in 2017. Along with driving over the posted speed limit, which is designed with motorist safety in mind, many people also drive to fast when faced with certain road conditions, such as inclement weather. 

How many workplace traffic deaths occur every year?

Many things can go wrong in the workplace, but people who are employed in certain fields face a particularly dangerous environment on a daily basis. For example, those who have a job which involves a lot of driving may run the risk of being involved in an accident, even if they are an extremely cautious driver. Likewise, there are a number of ways in which things can go wrong on the road and people may find themselves in a traffic crash for a number of reasons. Whether they are hit by someone who is under the influence or they collide with another vehicle because of poor road conditions, jobs involving driving can be very dangerous. Sadly, many workers have passed away in these wrecks.

Air ambulance costs are an expensive part of serious injuries

The scenery is pristine as you and your outfit rumble up the mountains. The engine of your ATVs is the only sound that interrupts the peace of the moment. Led by your guide, your group embarks up a steep path knowing that the trail will be rough, but the view on the other side will be magnificent. As you make your way up the face of the mountain, you come across a particularly rough patch. You're not sure if you should keep going with your ATVs or hike the rest of the way. Suddenly, your partner gives their ATV a little too much gas and they roll.

Piecing your life together after a Thanksgiving crash

Each year, families across the country come together to celebrate Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, this holiday can also increase the likelihood of a motor vehicle wreck happening. If you were hurt in an accident that occurred on Thanksgiving, your life may have been overturned in multiple ways. Perhaps you are reading this post in a hospital bed or maybe you have recently returned home. Either way, it is vital to know your rights and pursue any tools that can help you recover.

Halloween celebrations and traffic accidents

During Halloween, the chances of auto accidents occurring may be even greater for various reasons. Aside from a noticeable increase in pedestrian and vehicle traffic due to trick-or-treating and other holiday celebrations, some people also get behind the wheel after drinking too much on Halloween. Sadly, these behaviors can increase the likelihood of a crash which may cause devastating injuries or even the loss of innocent lives. If you were involved in an accident that occurred on or around Halloween, this may sound all too familiar. Whether you are facing the loss of someone you loved or a serious injury, our law firm recognizes the importance of assessing different options on the table and moving forward.

When poor vision causes a crash

There are a smorgasbord of reasons why people are involved in motor vehicle crashes, whether they happen because of intoxication or roads that have been covered in ice. However, our firm realizes that other causes, some of which are ignored by certain people, can result in a fatal collision or an accident that leaves victims with debilitating injuries. For example, someone whose eyesight is poor may cause an accident if they ignore their problems with vision and get behind the wheel.
