Consider drunk driving crash settlement terms carefully

When you are struck by a drunk driver, you are likely going to have a lot of things going through your mind.

Pedestrians count on motorists to make sure they are safe. The last thing that a pedestrian wants is to get hit by a car. When that happens, it can be devastating.

Soft tissue injuries can have profound effects on your life

When people think of car crashes that involve injuries, their thoughts are likely going to turn to life-threatening injuries. These aren't always the ones that are present. In some cases, the injuries are less severe but this doesn't mean that they aren't still serious.

Apps Can Cause Car Accidents

There are apps that can cause or contribute to car accidents if used improperly. Messaging app Snapchat allows motorists to post photos of a vehicle's speed. Waze is a navigation app which rewards drivers with points for reporting accidents and traffic jams. Pokemon is a game in which drivers search for virtual creatures on streets they drive. These apps are in addition to the granddaddy of distracted driving apps, text messaging. These apps when used while driving contribute to motor vehicle accidents, traffic injuries and deaths. In facts, after declining for four decades, in 2016 highway fatalities increased in 2016 10% over 2015 according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
