Distracted driving among teens can kill

According to the national nonprofit TeenSafe, at least 11 teens die on a daily basis in the United States from an accident caused by texting and driving. Of all those who die from fatal injuries across the country on a daily basis, at least six of them are age 16 to 19. During the course of crash investigations, underage alcohol consumption is found to have resulted in at least 25 percent of all accidents involving teens.

Car accidents can result in injuries anytime, but can prove to be particularly dangerous for women who are pregnant, regardless of how long they've been pregnant.

They note that it doesn't matter whether it involved multiple cars or was a simple fender-bender.

Can I file a lost wages claim if I'm self-employed?

If you're involved in a car accident and miss time from the job, then you'll likely want to recover the money you lost while unable to work.

Why is road debris the highest rated cause of freeway crashes?

A recently released study conducted by the the Traffic Safety Foundation, part of the American Automobile Association (AAA), suggests that one of the highest risk factors for highway crashes is road debris. They note that lost loads and other types of hazards accounted for at least 200,000 freeway accidents starting in 2011 and ending in 2014. At least 500 of those crashes resulted in driver fatalities.
