What steps should you take in the aftermath of a car accident?

There are probably only a few very lucky people in Minnesota who have never been involved in a car accident. Unfortunately, car accidents are all too common on the roadways throughout America, so, chances are that most people will almost inevitably be in one at some point in their lives. What steps should our readers take in the aftermath of a car accident?

Most of our readers have been involved in fenders benders before. But, unfortunately, we all know from daily news reports that much more serious car accidents occur quite frequently in the Minneapolis area. One recent report from the local area provided a few details about a truck accident that left a teenage driver dead at the scene.

Most drivers say distracted driving is a problem

Many of our readers in Minneapolis know that car accidents are one of the leading causes of death in America. But, what are the most common causes of car accidents? Well, as most people would probably guess, distracted driving is high on the list. And, according to a recent report, the vast majority of drivers on the roadways in America agree that distracted driving is a serious problem: 80 percent say so, in fact.

How common are car accidents that are caused by drunk drivers?

Of all the car accidents that occur on the roadways in America, many people would probably expect that there are a wide variety of reasons for these crashes. In some, distracted driving is the cause, as more and more drivers are using their cellphones or other electronic devices while driving. In others, a simple lack of attention - even momentarily - can cause a "fender-bender." But, how common are car accidents that are caused by drunk drivers?

Texting and driving may be behind increase in accident deaths

Minnesota residents may be interested to hear that for the last couple of decades, the statistics have shown that each year fewer people were being injured or killed in car crashes in the United States. It can be hard to know where to attribute credit for such encouraging statistics. It could be improved safety features in vehicles, public awareness campaigns to combat drunk driving or more restrictive licensing laws in many states. Unfortunately, however, the trend is beginning to reverse itself.

While we've all seen advertising campaigns encouraging people against the use of cell phones while driving, and while the dangers of driving while intoxicated are also well-known, that does not stop drivers from engaging in these actions on an all-too-regular basis. Unfortunately, one bad decision by a driver can result in a devastating accident.

5 steps to take after a hit-and-run accident

If you have been in a car accident, you expect the other driver to stick around, make sure you are okay and exchange information to pay for damages caused. There are times when drivers will hit another car and then drive off, which is known as hit-and-run accidents. Some leave because they are uninsured, and others leave because they may be under the influence of drugs or simply because they do not want to deal with the hassle of a car accident. If you were seriously injured in the accident, this can create problems regarding your financial future. When you are involved in a hit-and-run accident, make sure to follow these steps.
