When automobile accidents occur, they make news if there are serious injuries and major property damage. Most of the talk centers around the drivers of the vehicles, but particularly the driver who is accused of causing the accident.

The problem is not the illness itself, although that can sometimes make … Read more
If you were able to see into the future, there is very little doubt that you wouldn’t hand your keys over if you knew the person borrowing your vehicle was going to get into an accident. That, unfortunately, is exactly what happened. You gave your keys to someone else, and they were in a collision. You are angry and a bit put out, but relieved that you weren’t the one behind the wheel. It means you are off the hook … Read more
Truckers drive the road every day, and most do so with safety in mind. That said, driving on dry, even roads is a much different beast than driving over icy winter roads. When the weather takes a turn, driving demands rise, requiring a different skill set. Unfortunately, many drivers don’t alter the way that they drive and accidents happen.
Driving in bad weather is risky. It is harder to see, and traction is poorer. If you are a trucker, here … Read more

If you have dealt with food poisoning before, you know the feeling. The stomach cramps, the nausea and even the chills can all have you … Read more
Deer versus vehicle accidents can cause major damage, not to mention terrible injuries. People in states with heavy deer populations know to watch out for these beautiful creatures, especially in the early morning and late evening hours. While some people can go their lives without ever seeing a deer cross the road, many are not as lucky.
