Returning to work after a car accident

Every motor vehicle accident is different and the consequences that victims endure varies from one crash to another. Some people are immobilized for the rest of their life, while others lose their lives in an accident. These crashes frequently cause injuries that leave victims unable to work for a certain period of time, from a few days to many months. Moreover, some people have to find a new occupation because they have lost certain abilities after a wreck. If you are planning on returning to work after a car crash, there may be different factors you should take into consideration beforehand.

Cars that are not cut out for winter weather

Across the country, weather conditions are deteriorating in many cities as winter approaches. Some areas may see snow and ice, while others have more rainfall and foggy conditions that negatively impact visibility. These weather hazards can make driving dangerous, but the peril can escalate exponentially if you decide to head out into this type of weather in a vehicle that can't handle these hazards. 

3 safety tips for the holidays

While the holiday season is a time for families in New York to celebrate, it's also important to keep safety in mind. Whether cooking a lavish feast for loved ones or putting up decorations, you must take the right steps to keep you and others protected from harm. The following tips will help you do just that, whether at your home or when spending time with others.

What complications are associated with traumatic brain injury?

If you or a loved one has experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI), you probably know how complex these situations can be. TBI is associated with a wide range of complications, some of which can be very severe and persistent. The Mayo Clinic explains some of the possible consequences of brain injuries.

Eating food while trying to drive

Operating a vehicle can be especially difficult under certain circumstances, from ice on the road to intoxication. It is also important to think about some of the other behaviors and risk factors that can contribute to a crash. For example, trying to eat food can be dangerous behind the wheel and may lead to a distracted driving accident. There are many different foods that drivers try to consume on the road and some may be more distracting than others. However, anything that diverts a driver's attention is dangerous.

Recovering from a slip-and-fall injury

Personal injury cases take many forms and sadly, there are many reasons why innocent people continue to have their lives shattered as a result of another person's careless behavior. Some people are hurt in the workplace because of a co-worker's negligence, while others may be injured in traffic crashes or while walking down the street. For example, many people have been injured in slip-and-fall accidents, which occur in restaurants, retail stores, hospitals and many other places in New York on a regular basis. Sadly, many of these accidents were completely preventable and victims should not have been hurt.

Work-related crashes involving delivery trucks

If your job involves driving a delivery truck, there could be many different hazards that you come across on a regular basis. For example, your job may require that you lift heavy objects, which could be problematic over time (repetitive strain injuries, etc.). Or, you may face other job-related risks, such as the risk of a traffic collision. There are multiple reasons why driving a delivery truck can be particularly dangerous and if you are ever involved in a crash while you are on the job, it is vital to know exactly which options you have.

Traffic accidents involving a parked vehicle

When people think of traffic accidents involving two or more vehicles, they may picture crashes in which all of the vehicles involved are moving at the time of the collision. However, it is important to remember that some accidents occur while a vehicle is parked, and that these accidents may not only result in significant financial losses but severe injuries and even lost lives. Those who are hit by a driver while in a parked vehicle should respond to the accident appropriately and know what their legal rights are.

Keeping an eye out for erratic drivers

There are many dangers to be mindful of behind the wheel, such as weather conditions turning poor, debris that has fallen onto the road (such as an object that fell out of a truck or a limb that fell from a tree) and many other hazards. Unfortunately, other drivers in New York may also threaten the safety of everyone on the roadway and it is crucial for you to watch out for these types of people while you are driving. Sadly, these reckless drivers have caused so many collisions over the years, claiming the lives of responsible drivers and innocent passengers. While you cannot control their behavior, you can increase your chances of avoiding a crash by being alert.

Driving in deceptively dangerous locations

Sometimes, certain locations may seem incredibly dangerous, such as roads with sharp turns that are surrounded by cliffs. While driving in these areas, drivers may be more aware of the potential risks they face and they may focus on safety and pay close attention to potential hazards. However, some roadways may seem completely safe, but they may be deceptively dangerous. Unfortunately, some drivers may pay less attention to road safety in these areas, which could make them more likely to cause or find themselves involved in a motor vehicle collision.
