App helps drivers kick the distracted driving habit

With the proliferation of cell phones applications that help drivers navigate traffic zones, it is no surprise that more drivers use their phones for more than just their navigational tools while behind the wheel. After logging into a map application (for example) some drivers will take quick look at Facebook or ESPN.com while they’re driving (especially in bumper-to-bumper traffic).

Drunk boating is a serious, if often overlooked, safety concern

Some people don't think of drunk boating as a real hazard. They think of boats as toys more than vehicles. They may never drink and drive in a car, but they think nothing of spending hours on the water with a case of beer. There's a party-style atmosphere that makes this seem less dire.

Did your smartphone explode?

Smartphones, e-cigarettes and a variety of other consumer products that use rechargeable lithium ion batteries are in constant danger of exploding and causing injury to their users. For example, Samsung recalled a number of its Note 7 phablets because consumers were suffering severe burns when the digital devices exploded.

Are ATV accidents more severe than car crashes?

At this time of year, many parents become worried about their teens because of the increased potential  for auto accidents. Prom season and the upcoming graduation seasons are prime time for accidents. However, we cannot forget that teens can be injured when operating other motor vehicles, such as all-terrain vehicles (ATVs).

Should parents be afraid of having their children around dogs?

There are a number of reasons why some parents are nervous about having children around dogs.  Dog bite injuries are the second most common cause of emergency room visits for kids.

What are my rights after a pedestrian accident?

If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident (whether you are the pedestrian or the driver), you may have a number of questions about liability and fault. You certainly want to know who would be held legally responsible and who could be sued for damages stemming from the accident, including pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.

Did your child get hurt in a vehicle accident?

Roseville parents tend to have very full lives that involve driving their children to school, getting to work and running errands all over town. Spending so much time in a vehicle, however, comes with very real risks. Parents and their children could be involved in motor vehicle accidents at any time.

Tips for drivers who are on the road with motorcyclists

Motorcycle accidents can be extremely devastating. They often involve another vehicle and the outcome is usually not good for the motorcycle rider. Although most accidents involving motorcyclists don’t happen due to intentional actions, every driver still has a responsibility to keep an eye out for motorcycles when they are on the road.

Who is likely to be drowsy when driving?

Many people are at risk of drowsy driving. It's a dangerous habit that puts others and yourself at risk. Did you know that driving drowsy can happen even if you had a great night of sleep? Imagine driving a six-hour trip on your own. The road is long and straight, and there are few things to look at along the way. Over time, you feel hypnotized by the monotonous scene, and that makes you doze off.
