Are new cars too distracting?

Automakers frequently promote advanced safety features on the new models of their cars. Undoubtedly, those features have saved countless lives. Perhaps you can attest to this if your airbag ever deployed during a collision. However, safety is not the only area in which automakers seem to be competing.

The weather outside can be frightful, especially when driving

A dangerous accident can occur at any given moment for a variety of reasons, but the result is typically the same. Chances are you probably consider your health to be of the utmost importance, and you may attempt to avoid an accident at all costs by choosing to strictly adhere to Indiana state traffic laws and safe driving procedures, but others may not share your enthusiasm.

Disaster can strike when a driver nods off at the wheel

Do you feel as sleep deprived as a significant amount of the country's population? A good number of those people who struggle to get enough sleep may live here in Indiana. In fact, you may share the road with drowsy drivers every day and not even know it.

Debris is the deadly threat that you may not see coming

Many things can cause a car accident, from distracted drivers to dangerous car parts. Road debris is one of these hazards, yet many fail to recognize the distinct danger that it presents to motorists. One of the most common sources of dangerous road debris includes trucks and other vehicles with unsecured loads. 

Holding drunk drivers accountable for accidents and injuries

Drunk driving can cause great harm to many innocent people. In fact, you may be dealing with injuries suffered in an accident caused by an alcohol-impaired driver. If you suffered because of a drunk driver, it is possible to hold these individuals accountable for their actions and seek financial compensation.

An unfocused mind makes for a distracted driver

While cell phones are often associated with the problem of distracted driving, they are not always to blame. There are many different types of distraction, and all of them pose a threat to Indiana drivers and passengers. In fact, one of the most dangerous types -- cognitive distraction -- can be quite deceptive, as it involves the driver's mind, not necessarily physical actions. 

Do you consider yourself a defensive driver?

Traveling on the roadways can sometimes cause apprehension for many drivers. Because you cannot always predict what actions another traveler may take, you could easily find yourself involved in a serious accident that results in your injury. Of course, you may want to do your part to avoid such incidents if possible in hopes of avoiding such injury to yourself and your family.

What should I do after an automobile collision?

Immediately following a car accident seemingly caused by another driver's negligence, making sure that you and your passengers are physically okay is naturally your first order of business. If you have suffered a serious injury, calling for medical assistance is your next priority.

Help! I've been hurt in a car crash.

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the biggest causes of personal injuries in the United States, including in Indiana. Whether seemingly minor or severe, these injuries can unfortunately disrupt your life by preventing you from being able to return to work for a period of time or by requiring you to undergo ongoing medical treatment, for example. Sometimes a car crash is the result of the negligence of another driver, whereas others are caused by another motorist's reckless behavior behind the wheel.
