Most of us have our own individual fears. Whether they are unreasonable or completely justified makes really no difference the fear is still there. Fear is fear, and it can have an extreme impact on the way we live our lives. I have done a lot of traveling in my life and I have bumped into many people with the fear of flying.
The first thing to do after any accident is to see if anyone is hurt or needs medical attention. After any medical issues have been addressed, you can deal with the accident report and insurance claim.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) driving a vehicle is probably the most dangerous mode of transportation. Especially when you consider that in 2007, approximately 6.2 million motor vehicle crashes and over 41,000 traffic fatalities were reported to police. This makes up an average of 112 lives lost per day due to car accidents in the United States.
When you purchase automobile insurance, you are purchasing peace of mind and a level of financial security. If you are concerned about losing your assets you may be interested in purchasing insurance. Recently, I went to a new insurance company and updated my own coverage. During that process, it occurred to me that a basic explanation of the options and levels of coverage that insurance companies offer might be helpful to those who are thinking about purchasing or updating their car insurance.
The Institute of Medicine's (IOM) seminal study of preventable medical errors estimated as many as 98,000 people die every year at a cost of $29 billion. If the Centers for Disease Control were to include preventable medical errors as a category, these conclusions would make it the sixth leading cause of death in America. When people's lives and well-being hang in the balance, medical mistakes have serious, life-threatening consequences.
A short video from the law office of Kristopher Greenwood about bicyclists and the Law!
When a car or truck has a collision with a bicycle, the bicycle rider usually loses, no matter who legally had the right of way. Bicycle riders should take extra care to obey the following safety tips:
Remember: Bikes Are Vehicles, Too
Legally, bicycles traveling on a road are required to be treated in the same way as any other vehicle traveling on the road would be. This means that, as a bicyclist, you must obey the same laws as other drivers do. Do not run red lights, change lanes without signaling, or commit other infractions. If you would not do it in a car, don't do it on a bike.
Far too often, personal injury victims assume that they can forgo legal representation when filing claims. While this may seem like a smart idea, the reality is that the majority of people do not have the legal training or knowledge it takes to successfully litigate cases. Additionally, most people do not have experience negotiating with large insurance corporations that are responsible for paying out settlements to victims. Most insurance companies are equipped with in-house legal teams and are in the business of saving money, not dispensing it, which is why having an attorney with prior personal injury experience is so important.
