Whiplash most common injury in car crashes

Every 17 seconds, a back-end vehicle crash occurs in the U.S., and Tennessee has its share of them. According to Consumer Reports, neck strain and sprains, or whiplash, are the injuries motorists most often report. Whiplash occurs when your head is snapped backward, hyperextending the neck and causing damage to nerves and ligaments. Often, the pain and stiffness that occurs in whiplash lingers for several days and can occur during crashes in which cars are traveling as slow as 10 mph.

Reviewing the results of drowsy driving

Many in Shelby may plan ahead to keep themselves from driving while intoxicated. With the added awareness dedicated to the dangers associated with texting and driving, several more are now putting their phones away while behind the wheel. Yet there is another dangerous driving practice that many to continue to engage in that presents an equal amount of risk: drowsy driving.

Are their limits on how long bus drivers can work?

The semi-trucks seen driving on Shelby's roads and highways certainly present an enormous potential for damages if they were ever to be involved in accidents. yet there are other large vehicles that you see almost as frequently that can cause equal amounts of harm and throw in the potential for further losses given that they transport passengers. Buses and other mass transit vehicles require just as much skill as is needed to drive a semi-truck, and their operation can be equally as taxing. 

New “Textalyzer” Device to Prove Texting While Driving

Although everyone knows the dangers of texting while driving, the practice continues and people continue to suffer terrible accidents as a result. In accident litigation, one of the challenges is to establish conclusively whether one of the drivers was texting or engaging in other activities on their cell phone at the time of the accident.

Dealing with high-dollar insurance claims

The saying that "a man's home is his castle" could not be more apt. Just like with castles in the days of old, any breach in a modern home's walls can leave its occupants feeling defenseless. Yet rather than relying on regional allies to show up and offer support in such cases, today's homeowners instead rely on the assistance of their insurance carriers to refortify their properties. However, dealing with an insurance company following property damage can be a stressful proposition given that insurers in general are not perceived as being overly-enthusiastic about paying claims. 

Is lane splitting safe?

Spring is just around the corner, and for countless Tennesseeans, that can only mean one thing: adventures on the road. There is no activity quite like motorcycling; with the fresh breeze whipping through the wind and bright, sunny skies ahead, it is easy to see why so many cyclists flock to the state's breathtaking valleys. When it comes to safety, some aspects of motorcycle riding are simply indisputable, but are others safer than some might think?
