Teens and seniors: Who is responsible for more car crashes?

You have likely heard people complain about both teen drivers and senior citizens. For example, one person brings up the teens' lack of experience and all the risks they take, while another brings up senior citizens' decreasing physical and mental abilities and the mistakes they make.

You have 1 year to file a compensation claim in Tennessee

The symptoms that people face after a car wreck might not appear right away. There is a chance that some injuries won't show up for days or even weeks after the incident. This is often associated with whiplash and brain injuries like concussions. This can be problematic because you might not realize what is going on.

Catastrophic injuries in a car wreck cause lifelong impacts

Life after a serious car wreck is likely going to be very different than your life before it. This is challenging for most people because they will crave their old life. In some cases, you might be able to slowly work toward the goal of getting it back; however, life for people who suffered a catastrophic injury might not ever return to normal. We realize that this is devastating for the victims.

Can your phone lead to obsession and addiction?

People get addicted to alcohol, they get behind the wheel, and they cause accidents. Others get addicted to painkillers, and they too cause car accidents. Addictive behavior is not just dangerous to the person who is engaging in it, at least not when they can't shake that behavior while they drive. It distracts them and makes them less safe, and that can put other people in the hospital.

Drunk driving crashes are traumatic for the victims

During the holidays, adults head out to parties that might include alcohol. When they do this, they must ensure that they have a suitable way home. Nobody who has had a couple of drinks or more should attempt to drive home. Drunk drivers kill far too many people in this country.

Tips for driving during the winter months

The winter months are here, which means there is a risk of snow and ice blanketing many parts of Tennessee. Because many drivers aren't accustomed to driving in these conditions, it is imperative for everyone to take steps to ensure they can remain as safe as possible while they are on the roads. Here are some tips to help you:

Serious car wrecks can cause severe injuries

Drivers who choose to speed can cause serious crashes, but they don't think about that. Instead, they only focus on going as fast as they can. When you are involved in a high-speed crash, there is a good chance that you are going to suffer some very serious injuries. On top of that, you will likely have to deal with serious damage to your vehicle.

Distracted drivers can be dangerous even at slow speeds

Distracted drivers pose a risk for everyone on the roads. One troublesome event happens when these drivers are in a traffic jam on the highway or interstate and don't pay attention to what is going on. When they are stopped, there isn't really a danger. When traffic is moving slowly, they may end up causing a crash if they aren't watching the cars around them.

Delayed pain after a car accident

Imagine you were involved in a serious auto collision. Your vehicle rolled and flipped five times before it came to a rest in the middle of the interstate median. However, like something out of a Hollywood movie, you miraculously crawled out of the window and walked away from the crash. When police arrived, they couldn't believe it was you who was riding in the car.

Don't make this big mistake after a car wreck

Many things will go through your mind when you are in a car wreck. The stress of the situation might make it hard to think clearly. Still, you need to be sure that you are handling things appropriately so that you don't accidentally ruin your chance to seek compensation after the crash.
