Reviewing some unexpected obstacles on the road

There are many distractions that drivers might encounter, whether a passenger has a loud outburst or a driver tries to turn the radio station. However, there are many more hurdles that drivers may have to deal with, some of which are completely unanticipated. For example, an obstruction may lie on the road, such as equipment or debris that fell out of a truck. Moreover, an animal may dash across the road, prompting a driver to swerve.

Can stress result in a traffic accident?

From speeding to traffic congestion, motor vehicle crashes have many different causes. However, it is important for drivers to be aware of some of the other reasons why these accidents, which are often tragic, continue to happen. For example, someone who is under a great deal of stress due to a divorce or work might be more likely to cause a crash, which should serve as a reminder for people to drive safe.

Dealing with hypertension after an accident

There are many consequences associated with motor vehicle accidents, many of which are clear right after the collision. However, there are certain problems that may not appear until a certain amount of time after the accident. For example, a victim of a traffic wreck may develop hypertension as a result of the crash. Unfortunately, hypertension can interfere with life in many ways and is another serious health problem that some reckless drivers are responsible for.

Traffic accidents and Halloween

Following Halloween celebrations, some people are left with hangovers, while kids have an abundance of candy to work through. Sadly, some people are also left with injuries or the emotional pain that is associated with the loss of someone they love due to a car accident that occurred on the holiday. If you are suffering because of a crash that occurred on Halloween, it is essential for you to do all you can to hold the negligent driver responsible for his or her actions and obtain any benefits you are entitled to. Our law firm is well aware of the different reasons why motor vehicle accidents can be more likely on Halloween, and other holidays.

The link between spiders and car accidents

We have covered car accidents from a myriad of angles and they keep happening for an array of reasons, from driving under the influence to speeding. That said, there are some less common causes that can be very problematic for certain people. For example, someone who is terrified of spiders might cause an accident if they find one on their arm, leg, or another body part. Our firm knows that a car crash can generate a myriad of consequences, no matter the reason why the accident took place. As a result, it is essential for all drivers to be mindful of some of these less prevalent factors that can lead to a car accident.

Motor vehicle accidents and post-traumatic stress disorder

If you were recently involved in a traffic accident, a number of hurdles could lie ahead. For example, you might be having a hard time paying your hospital bills due to injuries you sustained, or your mortgage due to losing wages because your injury keeps you from working. Our firm also knows that families face significant hardships after losing someone they love in a road collision. However, there are other challenges that survivors of these collisions and their family members may have to endure. Unfortunately, many auto accident victims struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder, a serious condition that can uproot their lives in different ways.

How many fatalities are caused by rollover crashes?

When it comes to traffic collisions, there are all sorts of different types of accidents that can lead to the loss of life. For example, people pass away in head-on collisions or after being T-boned at an upsetting rate. That said, many people have lost their lives due to rollover crashes. Whether your family member was involved in a rollover or you are worried about finding yourself involved in a rollover wreck, it may be helpful to go over information on these types of accidents.

Handling a permanent disability after a crash

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle wreck, you could be facing many different difficulties. Depending on the details of the wreck, you may be lucky to be alive. However, you might be wondering how an injury you suffered in the crash will affect your future or you may be worried about the prospects of dealing with a disability for the rest of your life. Our firm knows how devastating this situation can be and we are aware of the different ways that people with permanent disabilities suffer across the state of Virginia.

Flu season and car crashes

From poor weather to the use of alcohol, motor vehicle wrecks have all sorts of causes. However, some of these collisions may be the result of a driver's illness. For example, someone who drives while they have the flu may be more likely to get in an accident for different reasons. Tragically, these crashes can make life incredibly challenging for everyone involved, whether they result in the loss of life or cause victims to sustain injuries.

Driving distractions

Distracted driving has become a costly problem in Virginia and throughout the United States. While texting and driving frequently receives all the attention as the cause of distracted driving, there are many potential distractions on the road.
