Important tips on what to do in a fender bender

Fender benders are one of the most common types of minor accidents in North Carolina. No matter how great a driver someone is, there is no accounting for the driver behind them who may follow too closely and fail to stop. Unfortunately, even the best drivers may not know what to do when they become involved in a fender bender.

When involuntary manslaughter tears families apart

According to FindLaw, drunk drivers may be charged with involuntary manslaughter if the crash is fatal. However, this has become such a problem in North Carolina that there is a separate charge for these offenses, known as vehicular manslaughter.

Finding a new career after a car crash

When people think about the different hardships that auto accident victims may have to work through, they often picture serious injuries, mental trauma and financial problems. Unfortunately, all of these issues can be present for someone who needs to find a new career because they cannot work any longer as a result of injuries sustained in a collision. If you are seeking a new line of work because of injuries you sustained in a wreck, it is essential to realize all of your options.

Why is wearing your seat belt important?

Sometimes, you may be distracted when you get into your vehicle. Thoughts about where you are going, especially if you are driving a new route, the time constraints you may have and a host of other thoughts may prevent you from remembering to fasten your seatbelt. However, making it a priority to buckle up as soon as you start your vehicle can protect you from being critically hurt if you are involved in a car accident in North Carolina. 

Pulling over and the risk of an accident

Drivers pull off of the road for all sorts of reasons, from law enforcement officials turning on their lights to see if someone is drunk to vehicle problems and even getting out of the car to go to the bathroom. Regardless of the reason why a driver pulls over, this can be dangerous for a number of reasons. Even if someone pulls over appropriately, they may run the risk of being struck by a vehicle that is traveling at high speeds, which can be deadly. As a result, if you ever need to pull off of the road for some reason, it is pivotal to do so correctly.

Vaping, young drivers and car wrecks

Young drivers may find themselves in a motor vehicle wreck for different reasons. Aside from the negligence and recklessness of other drivers, they may crash as a result of their inexperience, because of peer pressure that prompted them to get behind the wheel drunk or because they were using their phone while driving. These are just some of the risks that young drivers face, but there are far more to consider. For example, some young people like to vape, a habit that has become increasingly popular recently. Vaping can lead to a collision for multiple reasons and it is essential for young drivers to avoid any habits or behaviors that could lead to a collision.

Driving with extreme pain and the risk of a crash

It is important for all drivers to be aware of the different factors that could result in a crash, including those which may be less common. For example, if a driver’s mental or physical well-being is disrupted for any reason, this could make an auto accident more likely. Someone who is experiencing a significant amount of pain may cause a motor vehicle crash for a number of reasons, so it is vital to be cautious or stay off of the road altogether if you are ever in this position.

Sleep deprivation and motorcycle accidents

Riding a motorcycle can be a very rewarding experience and many people enjoy taking their motorcycle out throughout the year. Motorcycles can offer a sense of freedom and an experience like nothing else, but they are also dangerous. Furthermore, there are certain times when it may be especially risky to operate a motorcycle, such as when one is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, distracted or deprived of sleep. In this post, we will look at sleep deprivation and motorcycle collisions.

How should I prepare for a long drive?

Many people in North Carolina will be driving long distances over the holidays to visit friends and family. While road trips can be fun, you want to make sure you and your passengers remain secure during the jaunt. In this case, AAA offers the following tips.

Reviewing financial challenges that can arise after a crash

Car accident victims may face a number of immediate hardships after a collision, whether they have a broken leg, a severe laceration or a totaled car. These can be extremely serious consequences that require immediate attention, but there are other challenges that often arise in the wake of a collision, such as financial problems. Car accident victims may go through a number of different financial difficulties after a wreck turns their lives upside down, and we will take a closer look at this aspect of motor vehicle wrecks in this blog post.
