Alcohol use and motorcycle accidents

From drivers who fail to properly pay attention to the road to patches of black ice, there are a variety of hazards that motorcyclists need to keep in mind when they get on their bike. However, the use of alcohol is especially concerning and contributes to many of the motorcycle crashes that occur each year. Alcohol intoxication is responsible for motorcyclists losing control of their bike and it is also to blame for many of the drivers who collide with motorcyclists. Sadly, more lives will be claimed to intoxicated driving in the weeks ahead, especially with Memorial Day weekend coming up.

Extreme heat and pedestrian accidents

Pedestrians may find themselves in a traffic incident during any time of year, but there are certain instances where a pedestrian accident may be especially likely. During the winter, for example, a pedestrian may slip on ice or a driver may lose control after driving over a patch of ice and veer off of the road. The summer can also be a dangerous time for pedestrians and in this post, we will discuss some concerns related to summer weather and pedestrian accidents.

Reckless drivers and children playing near the road

With nicer weather and summer vacation around the corner, many children are looking forward to spending more time outside. For some, this includes riding a bicycle, skateboarding in the driveway, or playing on or near the road in some other fashion. Unfortunately, this can be dangerous, especially when it comes to reckless drivers who show little regard for kids, pedestrians, and even other vehicles. If you are a parent, it is crucial to help your child stay safe and avoid dangers. Unfortunately, some accidents happen solely because of another person's negligence and in these situations it is pivotal for victims to take action.

Recovering from a crash caused by an aggressive driver

When it comes to motor vehicle wrecks, there are certain behaviors that can play a role in a crash, such as aggressive driving. Drivers may drive aggressively for different reasons, whether they are stressed out or angry, trying to get to work on time, or simply having a bad day. Road rage is a serious issue and is far too prevalent on roads across the country. Unfortunately, aggressive driving can cause an accident that results in the loss of innocent lives and permanently shatters victims’ lives due to lifelong injuries.
