How dangerous is distracted driving?

Most motorists in Arizona understand that it is a privilege to drive a vehicle. With this privilege comes great responsibility. Drivers owe a certain duty of care to others while they operate a motor vehicle. A failure to uphold this duty is frequently the cause of serious and even fatal car accidents. Even when others drive defensively, a negligent driver can take them by surprise and leave them with serious injuries.

What constitutes distracted driving?

Life can get busy and chaotic. In order to address the growing demands in life, some residents in Arizona depend on their ability to multitask. While multitasking is perfectly safe in some environments, it can be tragic and life-threatening in others. For example, multitasking while behind the wheel of a vehicle is not only dangerous for the driver, but also for other motorists on the road. Thus, in the event of a car accident, it is important for victims to understand whether the car accident that left them injured was caused by distraction.

Roundabouts might cause more crashes than they reduce

Federal, State and local governments take action to help correct wrongs and better society. When it comes to automobile collisions, regulations are passed and changes to road designs are implemented in an effort to reduce crashes and increase safety on the roads. But what if some of these countermeasures are not effective? What if they in fact cause more accidents rather than they prevent?

Who can be held responsible for a dog bite?

As a previous post discussed, a dog attack can involve any breed of dog and a person of any age. While many do not consider this to be a likely occurrence, residents in Arizona and other states across the nation should note the possibility of these attacks and what rights they have following such a traumatic incident. By knowing their rights and being proactive about protecting them, victims could hold negligent parties accountable so that financial damages can be recovered following such an attack.
