Distracted driving leads to catastrophic injuries

There are three categories of distractions that drivers might face. These include visual, cognitive and manual. When a driver texts while they are driving, they are experiencing all three of these. This makes texting particularly dangerous. In fact, a driver who is on their cellphone is 5.36 times more likely to have a crash than a person who isn't distracted at all.

Talk to your parents about their estate plan before it's too late

Thinking of your parents aging isn't something that's easy, but now is the time for you to do one important task. You need to discuss their final wishes with them so that you know what to expect. When you do this, you will have the chance to ask questions and get clarification about what they want. This isn't going to be easy because it is an emotional topic. It might help for you to go into the discussion with a basic guideline to follow that helps you stay on track.

Watch the expenses when planning final expenses

The sudden loss of a loved one is a difficult situation, but you have to be able to make the plans necessary to honor them. Trying to make funeral or memorial plans requires you to make specific decisions. You might find that this is made even more challenging because your emotions are raw due to the unexpected passing.

How to avoid a rear-end motorcycle accident

Fall is a fantastic time for motorcycle riders in the Volunteer State.

Still, if a negligent motorist runs into the rear end of your motorcycle, you may sustain both a life-altering injury and extensive property damage. 

Personal injury claims involve various types of damages

Victims of severe car wrecks often have long-term impacts from them. It is imperative to evaluate your right to seek compensation if you suffer an injury in a crash.
