After A Car Accident: What To Do And What Not To Do

Getting injured in an accident on the road can spike a wide range of emotions, ranging from shock to panic and frustration. This is particularly the case if the accident was the result of another person's negligence behind the wheel. Perhaps this other person was texting while driving or was driving too quickly for road conditions, for example.

Negligence and medical records

There are many reasons that medical records are incredibly important. They allow doctors to properly analyze patients and share data, they allow for a scientific process when trying to determine what ailments a person may be dealing with, and they help to show a person's medical history so that more informed future decisions can be made -- just to name a few.

Two very dangerous teen car fads

Teen drivers have very little experience and much to learn about driving, which potentially makes them a risk even when they've completed their training and understand the rules of the road. Unfortunately, the danger they pose, both to each other and to other drivers, could be increased by some dangerous car-related fads.

Tips that can help avoid surgical mistakes

If you're going in for surgery and you're worried that the medical team may make a mistake, you should know that there are things you can do to reduce the risk. You're not obligated to do this, and you do deserve a high level of care regardless, but they can still help.

Are there foods you should avoid before a car crash?

The statistics show that around 1.7 million people in the United States suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) every single year. These wind up taking about 50,000 lives annually, but even those who live through the incidents -- car crashes are a serious contributor -- may have impaired cognitive abilities for the rest of their lives. In some cases, these injuries do not ever fully heal, even with the best possible care.

What to ask witnesses after a car accident

If you're involved in a car accident, the unfortunate truth is that the other driver may lie to the police and/or the insurance company. There are plenty of examples of two drivers colliding at a stoplight and both saying that they had the green light -- even though that's impossible on perpendicular roads (unless there was a rare stoplight malfunction).
