What Happens If a Collision Happens at a Car Dealership?

There’s plenty of places to buy a car in Biloxi. Test driving a car can be nerve wracking experience because you’re driving a vehicle that is new to you. You want to look at all the unfamiliar features that you can even though doing so may be a distraction. Cars can also have different sensitivities for the gas, brakes, steering, and other features, which may take the driver by surprise.

If you’ve been involved in a car accident while test driving a vehicle at a car dealership, it will help you to know how liability is handled in these situations. The first thing to know is that no matter what, you want to file a police report after any collision, but especially during a test drive. This proves that the incident happened, and the officer might write down who they find responsible in their report. This can help you if anyone takes you to court for the accident in a vehicle you were test driving.

How Often Are Defective Commercial Trucks Recalled?

When a commercial truck is in an accident, an investigation is often conducted to determine the cause. While the majority of crashes are the direct result of human error, there are some that are caused by defective automotive parts. When evidence suggests a truck could pose serious harm to others, it’s crucial for it to be recalled so accidents can be prevented.

When a commercial truck is defective and equipment fails, the truck driver could have a difficult time maintaining control of their vehicle and an accident could result. Just like with car companies, truck manufacturers are required to inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of defects, so a recall can be issued.

When Is an Unborn Child Considered “at Risk” for a Birth Injury?

When a woman goes into the delivery process, there are many factors to keep track of. The medical team needs to monitor the mother and the baby’s vitals. They need to make sure their oxygen levels are normal and that the baby faces no complications when being delivered through the birth canal. However, issues during the pregnancy can also put the child at risk of being born with a birth injury.

If your child was born with a birth injury, they may have severe health complications that they’ll live with for the rest of their lives. It can be frustrating to know that it could have been prevented. If a medical care provider acted negligently, they should be held accountable for their actions.

Part of understanding how to operate on freeways involves recognizing how the different lanes work and which lanes are the most dangerous to drive in.

Lane Selection on High-Speed Roadways

Part of what makes driving on highways so dangerous is that not all drivers are aware of how the different lanes are supposed to function. On a typical freeway, there are five types of lanes: the acceleration lane, merging area, through lane, passing lane, and deceleration lane.

Can I Get a DUI If My BAC Is Under .08?

As many people know, a driver can be charged with driving under the influence if their blood alcohol content percentage is 0.08 or higher. The limit is over zero because the effects of alcohol tend to not inhibit the average person until their BAC is around 0.08 percent. But what happens when you’re under the legal limit and get pulled over or get into an accident? You may be surprised to know that motorists with a lower blood alcohol content than the legal limit can be arrested, charged, and convicted if a law enforcement official has the evidence to prove you were too drunk to drive when you were stopped.

What Are the Dangers of Driving Too Slowly?

When we hear about dangerous driving behaviors, one of the most common ones is speeding. It reduces the driver’s ability to control their vehicle and they have much less time to respond to situations on the road. But what you may not know is the other side of this. Driving too slowly for the road is also a risk to everyone. It disrupts the flow of traffic and can still lead to accidents and injuries.

What Happens When Someone Drives Too Slowly?

It’s one of the most annoying situations when you’re caught behind a slow driver. Everyone has a schedule that they’re trying to stick to and dealing with someone who won’t drive at the speed limit adds more frustration into the mix. This makes the people around the slow driver progressively more angry, which increases the risk of an accident occurring.
