Car Accidents Archives

To the Google-mobile!

Since its inception in 1998, Google’s has gained dominance, if not supremacy in providing internet-related services and products. The name itself is a synonym for online searches, akin to the genericized use of Jell-O and Kleenex as the go-to term for similar products, regardless of their brand names.

Avoid feeling run over, review your uninsured motorist options

Any serious car accident could easily cause a wide variety of complications in a person's life. Even if you and the other driver have proper insurance coverage, you could encounter a multitude of obstacles, especially if you were injured in the collision. Matters become even more stressful if the at-fault driver did not have adequate insurance or any insurance at all.

What if the at-fault driver who hit you doesn't have enough insurance?

If you've ever driven on Turner Turnpike or some other heavily traveled stretch of Oklahoma road, you understand what it's like to have cars zipping past you at high rates of speed. Such areas are often prone to serious accidents, and many times driver negligence plays a leading role. This happens despite the fact that all motorists have an obligation to remain alert and adhere to all traffic regulations to keep themselves and others as safe as possible.

A distracted driving accident whodunit

According to the most recent statistics by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the percentage of drivers distracted by their phones while driving increased from 1.7 percent in 2013 to 2.2 percent in 2014. Since 2007, drivers age 16 to 24 have been observed manipulating electronic devices at higher rates than older drivers have.

The tragic consequences of lo-tech distractions while driving

Cutting-edge technology, specifically cell phones and other mobile devices are usually the culprit in accidents caused by distracted driving. The ability to concentrate on the road and other drivers can become seriously impaired due to various forms of communications. Texting, tweeting, Facebooking and live video broadcasts while driving can lead to serious injuries and death.

Driven to distraction -- are your emotions driving the car?

Distracted driving is a serious problem in the U.S. In due response to rising numbers of distracted driving accidents, technology is being developed to prevent people from texting and driving, and in 2015 Oklahoma banned texting while driving for all drivers.

THE CONSEQUENCES OF WHIPLASH INJURIES ARE SERIOUS

The serious nature of whiplash injuries suffered in car accidents can sometimes be underestimated. Because these types of injuries can worsen over time, it is important not to overlook them and their seriousness following a car accident. Whiplash is the most common type of soft tissue injury suffered in a car accident. Whiplash is also referred to as a cervical sprain, strain or hyperextension, and though there may be misunderstanding associated with whiplash, it is an unquestionably serious injury.
