What if your car accident affects your income?

Car accidents clearly affect your life from the moment they happen. This is true even when just your car is damaged, but especially so when you suffer injuries. You may need to spend time in the hospital recovering and healing. Even after getting released, you may need more recovery time at home. It only takes a split second for another driver to cause a crash, but you could be paying for it for weeks.

Crumple zones improve safety

Have you ever heard someone complain that "they just don't make cars like they used to"? Odds are, that person was involved in a minor accident. They may be frustrated by the way their new car seemed to take a lot of damage in the crash, and they may be complaining that a car they had back in the '70s would have simply had a few scratches and been fine.

Avoid these driving mistakes and you can avoid accidents

If you want to avoid car accidents this year -- as we all do -- you need to know what steps to take. Too many people seem to just hope that they don't get hit by attempting to generally follow the traffic laws, rather than taking active steps to avoid a crash. That's often not enough. They get hit by other drivers or cause accidents themselves.

10 car accident facts you should know

Car accidents happen every day. On one hand, to those involved, they are unexpected and shocking. On the other, as a national trend, they're something we deal with all the time. This duality makes it a bit hard to think about the role that accidents play in daily life. How you view it likely has a lot to do with how much it has impacted you personally.

Girl making 'marvelous' recovery after being hit by a car

It's been approximately six months since a seven-year-old girl was hit by a car while getting off of a school bus and crossing the street back in October. The driver who hit her failed to stop properly. The good news is that the girl just got to come home and appears to be making great strides toward recovering.

Economic troubles at least reduce car accidents

The economy is struggling lately. Many people are out of work for the foreseeable future. Some have less work than before. Businesses aren't making money or, at least, aren't making enough money. Products aren't selling. Many industries, like the travel industry, are making almost nothing.

Being a safe driver when facing the unexpected

It's easy enough to be a safe driver when everything goes as planned -- though some people do struggle with it. You generally just need to focus on the road and drive defensively. You can't prevent all accidents, but you can reduce the chances that you'll cause one.

Understanding the danger of high speeds

People often complain about "speed traps," saying that the police just set them up to make money, not to keep people safe. However, speed limits -- and the enforcement that goes with them -- really do have a main goal of creating safer roads. The police understand that higher speeds put everyone in danger.
