How to avoid common driving distractions

As a driver, you know how hard it can be to remain focused at all times. You also know that taking your attention away from the road can result in an accident that causes serious injury (or even death).

3 ways to reduce glare and have a safer drive

Glare can be a serious problem for drivers, and it's one that isn't discussed as much as it should be. When a windshield sits at a certain angle or the sun reflects dust or dirt that has collected, the possibility of a blinding glare is higher than normal. Even if a driver is only struggling with glare for a few seconds, it's long enough to put him or her in danger and to endanger those around the moving car.

What are the symptoms of a herniated disk?

Our necks and backs are built to withstand a lot of strain as we complete various tasks throughout the day. However, the stress factors involved in the typical motor vehicle accident may be too severe for the average spine to endure. This is why many people who survive car accidents end up with long-lasting neck and back problems.

Can I seek compensation for a mild brain injury after an accident?

Car accidents regularly leave their victims injured in many ways, but some injuries tend to be more subtle than others. People often dismiss a mild traumatic brain injury as "not really a problem," but this is demonstrably untrue.

What to do if you or someone you love suffers a brain injury in a car accident

Many times, when someone walks away from a serious automobile accident without a broken bone or spinal injury, people think of him or her as lucky. However, some of the worst injuries related to car accidents aren't visible to the naked human eye. Those who have been involved in a vehicular accident may suffer from closed head injuries or traumatic brain injuries.

Could your fender-bender turn deadly due to road rage?

There's no denying that Houston traffic can be nightmarish at times. Some days you're gripping the wheel with white knuckles, trying to stay in your lane between a couple of swaying 18-wheelers. Others may find you dodging the questionably sober driver who keeps crossing over into your lane. Whatever the case may be, a plethora of petty annoyances can culminate in an instance of deadly road rage should two of the vehicles collide on the interstate.
