Was negligence a factor in your car accident?

We often discuss negligent or reckless behaviors that can and do lead to motor vehicle accidents on this blog. We talk about drivers who crash while they are drunk, distracted or driving dangerously and how, in many cases, they can be held liable for the damages that result from their behaviors.

Obama Administration is Planning to Pay Doctors

Research has confirmed that 440,000 people die every year due to preventable medical errors, which is also the third leading cause of death in the United States. Because of the growing evidence that patients with chronic illnesses suffer from disjointed, fragmented care, the Obama Administration is coordinating with Medicare patients and doctors to decrease the number of medical errors for Medicare patients through coordinated care.

CDC: 1 death caused by drunk driving every 48 minutes

Getting behind the wheel of a car is one of the most reckless decisions a driver can make. And while every motorist should be well aware that driving under the influence of alcohol puts themselves and every other person on the road in danger, too many people continue to get behind the wheel after drinking.

Recovery continues for Tracy Morgan, victim of truck accident

While it is true that an accident can happen in the blink of an eye, the recovery process after a crash typically lasts much longer. Victims of an accident can experience physical and emotional trauma can linger on years after an crash, and in some cases, injuries can be permanent or fatal. 

How the ban on texting and driving is affecting safety

Imagine you are driving home after a long day at work. You pull onto the road and are quickly surrounded by other cars, all being driven by people eager to get home. Now imagine letting go of the wheel and closing your eyes for five seconds. In that span of time, traffic could come to a stop ahead of you; you could drift into another lane and sideswipe another vehicle; or you could fail to see someone crossing the road.
