Car Accidents Archives

In a car accident? You're not alone

Getting into a car accident often makes you feel alone. You wonder how it could have happened to you. You blame your bad luck and misfortune. You feel like you're the only one who has to deal with injuries, medical bills, car repairs, police reports and a lot more.

Go to the doctor after an accident, even when you feel fine

The car accident leaves you shaken and scared, but you do not think you got injured. There is no blood. There are no broken bones. You get out of the car on your own and walk to the side of the road, where you wait for the emergency crews.

Should drivers wear helmets?

We know that helmets save lives. If you talk to safety experts about motorcyclists and traditional cyclists, they'll tell you that every single one should have a helmet on. They'll tell you that it doesn't matter what the law says -- many states do not require helmets -- because the evidence shows that helmets increase safety, decrease death rates and a lower brain injury rate.

What can a nearly fatal car accident teach you about life?

Getting into a nearly fatal car accident has a lot of negative ramifications. Your car is totaled. You have high medical bills. You end up dealing with a lot of pain and suffering. Your injuries take a long time to heal. This is the type of event that can change your life forever.

Tips for improving your time in the hospital after an accident

A red-light-runner slams into your car and puts you in the hospital. You have extensive injuries, and you know you have to stay for more than a week. It's a daunting amount of time. You've never really liked hospitals, and you worry about staying in that room for so long. What can you do to make it better?

Pennsylvania has 3 of the country's most dangerous highways

Can you stay safe in your car simply by avoiding the most dangerous highways in the nation? While an accident can happen anywhere, it is worth considering that some roads have a lower level of inherent risk than others. Knowing where you face the greatest dangers can help you pick the safest possible route. This may not prevent a crash, but it can lower the odds.

The surprising place where most car accidents happen

If you're thinking about where most car accidents happen, what comes to mind first? Do you think about the interstate with its higher speeds? Do you think about the roads in the city during rush hour traffic? Do you think about country roads where people speed more often and see the police less often?
