Rear-end collisions are one of the most common types of traffic accidents.

Read any article or piece of guidance on what you should do after a car accident, and you’ll probably be told that you should – if at all possible – take a lot of photos. Why? Well, photos are worth way more than 1000 words in any car accident case. They provide an accurate record of the car accident scene, which can end up capturing details that can be otherwise forgotten or overlooked.  Those details can help determine fault, lend credence to accounts of injuries and back up eyewitness claims – all of which can have a big effect on the outcome of a claim. So, where do you start? Here ar ..read more

The soles of your shoes help provide more traction on your brake and gas pedal, and they help you distribute pressure more evenly – which always makes for a safer ride. Plus, leaving your feet uncovered means you have nothing to protect your toes and feet in an accident.

Some cases are more complex than others, leaving people unsure of their options. An individual pursuing compensation might recognize tha ..read more

Members of the general public generally believe that they can successfully file an insurance claim after any kind of major collision. For the most part, that is a reasonable belief.

People assume that they can receive coverage that pays for the damage to their vehicle and their injuries, as well as any wages they cannot earn because of the crash. While those assumptions are theoretically reasonable, people may drastically overestimate what insurance ..read more

Texting and driving is illegal, and it’s also dangerous. If you’ve ever tried it, you can quickly tell just how distracted you are. It can be difficult just to check notifications while the car is in motion – let alone actually typing a text message – and anything that takes your eyes off of the road increases the odds of an accident. With this in mind, some drivers may start thinking about sending or reading those text messages whenever they get to a red light. After all, the car isn’t moving, so shouldn’t that be safe? Isn’t that a good way to stay connected and also avoid causing a car acci ..read more
