Car accidents caused by texting while driving

With the nearly universal popularity of smart phones across the United States in recent years, instances of texting while driving — and distracted driving for that matter — have risen exponentially. In fact, many analysts estimate that texting while driving is far more dangerous than inebriated driving because of the way drivers take their eyes off the road to manipulate their cellphones.

Acceptable sources of medical information

When applying for Social Security Disability Insurance, applicants will need to offer evidence of their impairments, and that evidence needs to come from medical professionals deemed "acceptable" by the Social Security Administration. Then, after the impairment has been established, the SSA will accept other sources of information, including non-medical evidence, to assess the severity of the impairment.

Fighting Back From an Injury After a Hit and Run

If you're injured in a auto accident, it's hard enough to bounce back under the best circumstances, but when the driver responsible doesn't stick around at the scene as they are required to do, it can be that much harder to get the compensation necessary to pay for your medical bills, fix your own vehicle, and make up for any life adjustments you've had to make as you build your future. The first thing you need to do is get through the moment the best you can. This means seeing that your own injuries are tended to as quickly as possible, and getting as much information as you can about the accident by taking pictures, calling on witnesses to take pictures, and recording as much detail about what happened, the vehicle that drove away and the description of the driver. Report the incident to the police, and let your insurance company know that an accident has occurred.

Alabama residents often fail to think about how dangerous it is to operate a motor vehicle on the roadways in our state. However, automobile crashes can happen at any time. When a crash involves a small automobile and a big heavy truck, the occupants of the car rarely escape without serious and potentially life-threatening injuries.

Will self-driving cars be ethical?

A U.S. safety official is worried that automakers will not be able to make their self-driving cars "ethical." The issue relates whether artificial intelligence powering self-driving cars can make sound and ethical decisions, like avoiding an accident that might harm a person that is not contained inside the vehicle.
