Because the pain is not immediately felt, or because they hope the pain will subside, a lot of people do not see a need to visit a doctor. Other times, the hassle of filing a personal injury claim can plain out seem like a hassle.

driving-in-summer-1-300x169Have you ever been behind the wheel of a vehicle and suddenly the sun becomes perfectly aligned to punch you right into the windows of your soul – so much so, it becomes difficult to navigate?

This moment is often referred to as “the Ray Charles” and can be very dangerous, especially on the busy roadways in the metroplex.

Just after sunrise and before sunset the sun can shine directly into drivers’ eyes, leaving many motorists driving with a glare. This glare can make it much harder to see the road ahead and potential hazards creating an added risk to drivers. When sun glare is an issue slow down and use extra caution especially while driving through school zones.

Ctrl-300x200There are many measures to determine car safety, and one is to examine driver death rates per vehicle. Data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety released in May identified the most dangerous cars on the road based on this measure.

Most of the models that have the highest driver fatality rates are small cars with structures that are less able to absorb the brunt of crashes. All of the cars with the lowest driver death rates were either large luxury cars or SUVs.

According to IIHS, 4-door minicars have the worst death rate at 87 per 1 million registered vehicles, while 4-wheel drive large luxury SUVs have the lowest with six driver deaths per 1 million registered vehicles.

But even if you take other drivers out of the picture, the summer months still have their own inherent climate-related dangers. The heat alone is dangerous for passengers and drivers alike. The most important things to watch out for during the summer months include: tire failure, heat stroke, and an overheated engine.

Tire Failure. The over-usage of drivers on the road, along with excessive heat, can wear down and cause great damage to your tires. Tire damage and failure causes over 11,000 accidents each year.

Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex personal injury victims must make a series of choices after an accident, and many of those involve dealing with the insurance company.

It is Not Personal – Just Business for the Adjuster

Typically, an adverse adjuster will contact the car or truck crash victim after a serious injury accident. It is important to remember that the adjuster is not on your side and does not have your interest at heart when attempting to settle a claim. Your claim is probably one of several hundred the adjuster has on the plate. Don’t make the mistake of believing they care about your situation. If the adjuster is going out of his or her way to be helpful to you- that is a signal they may be worried about the amount of your claim.

car-safety-gear-cuts-deaths-in-dallas-300x200Driving regulations, such as no texting and driving, are good measures to ensure drivers are safer on the road, but are not the only actions in place to keep roads safer. A new study shows that safety gear and equipment being installed in new model cars has proven to decrease the amount of deaths resulting from auto accidents.

According to the Wall Street Journal, federal data released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in December 2017 shows that safety features being built into cars in recent years have allowed for a drop in auto fatalities. In the study, it shows that in the past decade the number of fatalities from accidents has dropped by nearly two-thirds with each new model car released. In 2016, the number of fatalities dropped by 3.1% over the previous year, while the number of those injured fell 2.1%.
