Know the signs of drunk driving to help you stay safer

The winter holiday season is here, and this time of year is associated with an uptick in drunk driving. This means that there's an increased chance that any motorist could be struck by a drunk driver. These crashes can lead to serious injuries or fatalities.

Unsecured items can cause significant injuries

For most people, thinking about vehicle safety means doing things like making sure the brake system is functioning and that the occupants of the vehicle are buckled up. They may also think about driving safely. What many of these individuals don't think about is how something they do without much thought can cause significant injuries.

Shattered bones: Complications could be life-changing

Will you develop post-traumatic stress disorder after a crash?

Getting into a car crash is difficult for anyone, but when you suffer a life-changing and debilitating injury, your entire world is turned upside down.

If you're in a crash, get the right diagnosis

Car crashes can be unpredictable. What happens in one may not happen in another, even under similar circumstances. As someone who has been involved in a crash, you know that the injuries you've suffered are unique to your situation. You also want to make sure that the driver who struck you is held responsible.
