Driving a new vehicle and the risk of a wreck

On our blog, we have discussed an array of reasons why motor vehicle crashes occur. With that in mind, it is crucial to realize that there are many more factors that can result in a motor vehicle collision. For example, someone who drives a new vehicle may be more likely to find themselves in an accident due to a lack of familiarity with the vehicle. If you find yourself in this position, it is crucial to be especially vigilant while operating the vehicle.

Auto accidents and inexperienced drivers

Whether a driver is intoxicated after drinking too much alcohol or they are under the influence of drugs, there are all sorts of risk factors that can lead to a crash. However, even sober and responsible drivers might find themselves in a motor vehicle collision for any number of reasons. Distracted driving and drowsy driving are serious problems, but there are other potential areas of concern, such as inexperienced driving. If you are operating a vehicle and have little experience on the road, or one of your loved ones is driving without much experience, it is important to be especially careful.

How is child custody determined?

Parents in North Carolina who are going through a divorce have many hard decisions to make. One of the toughest is custody of the children. As in most states, custody decisions in North Carolina are based off what is best for the child. While parents are encouraged to communicate and make the decision together, the court can make the determination if the parents are unable to do so.

When loud music contributes to a crash

Motor vehicle wrecks have many causes, from honest mistakes to reckless behavior. Unfortunately, some people may not realize that certain behaviors, such as listening to excessively loud music, can increase the chances of a crash in different ways. When an accident takes place, there may be far-reaching repercussions that shatter the lives of entire families. From emotional pain over the loss of a loved one to financial problems brought on by lost work as a result of an injury, motor vehicle collisions can be devastating.
