How to tell who is at fault in a car accident

By definition, an accident is something that happens unexpectedly, without anyone planning or intending it to happen. But when it comes to car accidents, it’s not uncommon for one party to be held more responsible for causing the collision than another.

The same can be said about the way some people handle car accidents.

Cars are getting smarter all the time, and it may not be all that long before we’re all riding around in vehicles that drive themselves.

car technologies that keep driving safe

It wasn’t all that long ago that the primary safety feature you could find in the most advanced cars on the road consisted of a seat belt that stretched across your lap. Then a few models began offering exotic features such as antilock brakes and dual front airbags (which didn’t become mandatory for all passenger vehicles in the United States until 1998). We now take those life-saving innovations for granted. But in the last few years, a wave of startling, risk-reducing features have been introduced in the auto world; although most of them are not yet standard on all vehicles, they’re...

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Driving defensively is something that students learn when they first take the wheel. You have to not only pay attention to your own driving, you have to anticipate the actions of other drivers and plan accordingly, giving yourself enough time and distance to react properly. The same holds true when it comes to purchasing auto insurance. Many motorists think they’re adequately covered if they have insurance that protects them in the event that they’re at fault in an accident. But if you really want to protect yourself and your assets from an economic crash, you have to anticipate the crazy things...

SOME PAINFUL FACTS ABOUT WHIPLASH CLAIMS

Whiplash Injury

Car accidents can produce many different types of injuries. One of the most common is also one of the least understood: Whiplash Injury. It’s often ignored, belittled or dismissed as, quite literally, a pain in the neck — something annoying but hardly worth bothering about. But whiplash, and the constellation of symptoms associated with it, can turn out to be a bigger pain than drivers realize, and it deserves to be taken seriously. WHAT IS WHIPLASH INJURY? Whiplash is an injury that occurs as a result of an impact that produces rapid forward-and-back or sideways movement of the head and neck. Typically,...
