Ice and snow are both dangerous when on the roads. Both make for slick road conditions, increasing the risk of crashes stemming from loss of control. Drivers need to know how to address these conditions so that they can react appropriately.
It is not always a drunk driver or drowsy driver who causes a crash. Sometimes, there are items that fall into the roadway or cause a driver to lose control.
Personal injuries sometimes lead to wrongful deaths, and for families dealing with the loss of a loved one, it's important to bring the responsible party to justice. When someone flees the scene of an incident that leads to death, that individual may be charged with murder, a hit-and-run or face other penalties. In the following case, a man may end up with a conviction for murder as a result of his alleged actions.
When it comes to truck drivers in the United States, many believe that they don't get enough sleep, they work long hours without breaks, that they are untrained or too young and that they are a danger to other drivers on the roads. This is made clear in some instances when truck drivers get into crashes with other drivers. In many cases, the crash is a direct result of a lack of sleep or distractions.
When you are in a crash, you know that there is a possibility you may suffer a head injury. One thing you might not have known is that you could suffer a brain injury as quickly as one millisecond after your head hits the windshield or other window.
All kinds of injuries can have an impact on your life, but you may not have thought about how a simple injury to the bones in your hands and wrists could severely impact your life. People use their hands every day, many times without thinking about it. From scratching your wrist to rubbing your eyes, your hands are in constant motion.
Whiplash is a type of injury that occurs when the head whips forward or side to side quickly. It's common during rear-end collisions, but it can also occur during other types of crashes.
