Car Accidents Archives

The numbers behind texting and driving should concern you

Earlier this summer we wrote about how parents should be vigilant about talking to their kids about the dangers of distracted driving. Indeed, the longer days and lack of school would mean that younger drivers would be on the road later in the day. This is ostensibly why the summer months are considered the 100 deadly days of summer.

What to do after a car accident - Part II

Let’s face it, no one actively prepares to deal with the aftermath of being in an accident before it happens. Sure, we put on our seatbelts, drive within posted speed limits and follow the rules of the road for the most part, but when someone runs into us; we accidently hit someone else,  common sense may go out the window. With that said, it is important to have some basic rules in mind for how to deal with the stress, confusion and uncertainty that comes after being in a car accident

Could an unstable compound cause airbags to explode?

If you thought that you were constantly driving with a potential bomb in your car, how often would you drive it? Indeed, most people understand that if a gas tank became ruptured, the results would be catastrophic. This is why many cars are designed so that the tank will not be compromised in the event of an accident.

One important end of summer new car buying tip

If you are waiting for the right time to buy a car, the last weeks of August, and even Labor Day weekend are prime buying periods; especially for new cars. At this time of the year, dealers are pressed to make room for new model year vehicles, so they may be willing to part with old model year vehicles at a discount.

Is a car that drives like 'your grandma' safe on the road?

Much has been said about the safety potential for driver-less cars as we get closer to them becoming a reality. Essentially, the public won’t have to worry about these cars driving aggressively, succumbing to road rage or even driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Could 'see through' trucks end up saving lives?

In a number of our posts, we have noted that the additional cars on the road could increase the risk of accidents. Part of this danger involves the passing of slow moving trucks on two-lane highways. Essentially, impatient drivers stuck behind these trucks may not know when it is safe to overtake them by briefly driving in the opposite lane. Inopportune lane changes could result in head-on collisions.

Why PTSD is an important consideration in car accident cases

Being in a car accident is likely going to be the most traumatic event you will experience in your lifetime. The act of suddenly being severely jarred or injured through a car accident is not something that people will go through, even though there are an estimated two million crashes on U.S. roads each year.

Can human error still affect self-driving cars?

In a few of our past posts, we have mentioned that the introduction of fully self-driving cars is not a matter of “if” but more or less a question of “when.” Indeed, some automakers have noted that they will offer such cars by the end of the decade. However, it may not be so easy when considering the possibility of technical problems causing accidents.
