Bicycle accidents during Memorial Day weekend

Many people enjoy celebrating Memorial Day, and Americans across the country recently celebrated this holiday with their loved ones. Warmer temperatures and the unofficial start of summer brought many people together to enjoy barbecues, go to the beach and ride their bicycles. Unfortunately, this also brings the chance of a bicycle accident, which may be especially likely due to drunk driving and busy traffic. If you were involved in a bike accident during the holiday weekend, you may be struggling with a number of serious challenges.

Family vacations and motor vehicle wrecks

Many people welcome Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial start of the summer season, and a lot of families go on road trips over this holiday weekend and look forward to additional vacations during the summer months. Some parents may be able to take time off work during this season and many kids are out of school. Combined with warmer temperatures, this can be an excellent time of year to take to the road and visit another state (or a different country). Unfortunately, this carries a number of risks, including the possibility of a motor vehicle accident.

Chronic pain following a car crash

There are many ways in which motor vehicle wreck victims may suffer, but the physical toll of a wreck can be devastating. Even if an accident victim does not sustain any broken bones, they may struggle with chronic pain following a collision. Moreover, those who are able to recover from an injury may find that their injury leads to chronic pain later in life. Unfortunately, pain can be very debilitating, and it can serve as a constant reminder of an accident that was caused by a careless driver, which never should have taken place. For these reasons and many more, it is imperative for auto accident victims to seek justice.

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.
