Motor Vehicle Accidents Archives

Louisiana has one of highest distracted driving rates in U.S.

There is more handheld technology available to consumers than ever, and many consumers have taken to using handheld devices in their car while driving. Sometimes, it seems impossible to drive down the road without seeing another driver texting, taking selfies or talking on a cell phone. Distracted driving is incredibly dangerous, but that does not stop many drivers from doing it anyway.

How do you put a value on pain and suffering?

Auto accidents can cause more than just physical damage. Sure, there is the damage to the body of your car, and possibly your own body. But some damage is intangible. The legal system refers to this type of damage as “pain and suffering,” and it is sometimes possible to receive compensation for it.

Should your elderly parent still be driving?

Many adult children are not prepared for the role reversal that comes with caring for an aging parent. Your parents used to decide what was best for you and set the rules accordingly. But when you are an adult and your parent is a senior citizen, that task may fall to you.

Self-driving technology and school buses

Many kids get to and from school via school bus. Statistics point to this form of travel being a relatively safe one for children. Federal data suggests that kids have a significantly higher likelihood of getting safely to school on a school bus than they do if their parents transport them. However, accidents do sometimes occur which result in children getting hurt while riding in or getting on or off of a school bus.

Promoting safe driving among young workers

Many businesses have some of their workers drive as part of their job. How these workers behave on the roads can have major impacts. In addition to affecting the employees’ own safety, it could impact the likelihood of a worker getting into a traffic accident that harms others. Such crashes can raise some complicated, and possibly very financially impactful, legal issues for the company the worker is with.

What impacts are automated safety features having out on the roads?

While fully self-driving cars are not yet available to the public, there are various individual automated safety features that automakers offer with some of their vehicles. What impacts are these features having on traffic safety? As a recent article notes, a pair of studies suggests that, when it comes to two of these features at least, they appear to be reducing accidents.
