The most common ways people can be injured in a car accident

One thing all vehicle crashes have in common is that they are unpredictable. No two are the same, so how can Mississippi residents predict who will be injured and how severely? It is not easy, but there are some common ways people can be injured in a car accident.

Using common sense to reduce your injuries in an accident

While you cannot ever know for sure that you can avoid getting into a car accident, it is important to take precautions so that you can effectively minimize your injuries if you are involved in an accident in Mississippi. At Wood, Carlton & Hudson, P.C., we have been able to help many victims of car accidents as they put their best efforts into making a full recovery. 

How can I keep kids safe on Halloween?

Halloween is fun for kids and adults alike, provided the right safety precautions are taken. Motorists must be extra alert during the holiday, while parents must make sure their kids understand the importance of pedestrian safety when trick-or-treating. AAA offers these helpful safety tips to prevent injuries and keep kids safe on Halloween. 

What are some tips when driving on wet roads?

Now that fall is here, wet weather is right around the corner. As a result, many drivers must take extra care when driving on rain-slicked roads or they run the risk of being involved in a serious accident. While safe driving won't always prevent wrecks, it can greatly mitigate injuries and property damage that may occur. In this case, AAA offers the following wet-weather driving tips to ensure you and others remain safe. 

Why do people drive distracted?

Most people agree that driving while distracted is a highly dangerous practice. However, many of the same people who make these statements continue to partake in dangerous driving behaviors, despite their acceptance that they can lead to devastating accidents. Travelers.com looks into the science behind this disparity to determine why so many motorists put their lives and lives of others at risk when behind the wheel. 

Losing the ability to walk after a car accident

Motor vehicle collisions can be traumatic for a host of reasons. However, for some people the consequences of a crash can be especially disruptive in their lives. For example, those who lose the ability to walk as a result of a motor vehicle collision may experience a wide variety of hardships in their personal and professional lives. Hobbies that one has enjoyed for decades may need to be dropped due to immobility, and someone may no longer be able to continue working in a certain field. These are just some of the things to worry about when it comes to auto accident injuries.

When traffic collisions involve multiple vehicles

Every auto accident is unique, but some can be particularly devastating. For example, a wreck which involves a vehicle that was traveling at a high rate of speed or a crash which involves multiple vehicles could be particularly disastrous. During the summer months, multi-vehicle accidents can occur for various reasons, and there are certain occasions when these collisions may be especially likely (such as the Fourth of July and during popular festivals which attract many people).

Summer road trips and auto accidents

At any time of the year, drivers face many different risks while they behind the wheel. However, the likelihood of an accident may be especially high during certain occasions. For example, someone who goes on a road trip to a different part of the state they live in (or drives to another part of the country) may be particularly likely to find themselves in an auto accident. Moreover, in the event that a motor vehicle collision occurs, they may have an especially hard time dealing with the aftermath of the wreck while they are out of town. If you are planning a road trip this summer, it is very important to be aware of the hazards that you may run into and take steps to prevent an accident.

What impact does speeding have on driver safety?

Being a good driver entails being courteous to others and always following traffic laws. One law that is often ignored is the speed limit, which many drivers disregard as they travel the roads and highways of Mississippi. While breaking the speed limit might not seem like a big deal, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration explains why it's so dangerous.
