Car crashes are on the rise, and so are personal injuries

Statistics from 2015 gathered by the National Safety Council revealed that from January to June that year, there were almost 2.3 million serious injuries.

Car crash injuries can have a negative impact on your life

Car accident injuries can have a negative effect on your life. Even those like the ones that don't show up right away that we discussed in our previous blog can have a huge impact on your life. We know that you might be surprised at the way that these injuries are affecting you, but you must make sure not to try to just ignore the fact that you are injured.

Not all injuries show up at the time of a car crash

Some car crashes jar your body in a way that you don't realize that you are hurt until you have a chance to sit down and rest. This could be partially because of the adrenaline rush that occurs with accidents. Regardless of the cause, you should be prepared in case you do have delayed symptoms after a crash.

3 car insurance coverage myths

When it comes to the monetary consequences of a car accident, it is better to be safe than sorry. You may think you have no need to worry because you have good enough insurance.

Pedestrian crashes can lead to very serious effects

Our recent blog post discussed the horrors of a pedestrian versus vehicle accident. The impacts of these accidents can easily be harrowing.

Car versus pedestrian accidents can be very serious matters

When you are struck by a vehicle, you might know that you need help right away. Getting medical care is a top priority in these cases. Calling 911 is one of the first things that you should do if you are struck by a car and are able to make the call. If you can't make the call, try to get someone else to call for you.

What to know about crashes between bicycles and cars in Tennessee

Using a bike as your form of transportation, exercise or recreation comes with many benefits. It can also be dangerous when you share the road with other vehicles. In 2012, 29 percent of bicycle-related injuries resulted from cars hitting cyclists, reports the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center. The good news is that you can avoid getting in a collision with a car by following simple safety rules. This is especially significant for males and those 45 years old or higher, as they have higher fatality rates.

Car crashes can sometimes be avoided, but not always

Trying to avoid a car accident is something that most drivers do without thinking. There are some circumstances that are more commonly associated with crashes than others. Learning how to avoid these causes can help you to stay safe on the road. These preventative methods won't prevent all accidents, so if you are involved in a car accident that wasn't your fault, you might choose to seek compensation.
