How to Protect Your Vulnerable Occupants

Certain groups of people are more vulnerable to injury and death in car accidents than others. Learn who they are and what to do in this post.
So, continuing our conversation about the NHTSA and vehicle safety, this week we’re discussing what they call “vulnerable occupants.”

Now it’s pretty simple what vulnerable occupants are: people in your vehicle who are more susceptible to injury.

That could be the obvious ones like senior citizens and children. And it could be less obvious groups like obese occupants and unattended children.

Texas Leads the Nation in Deaths with Children in Unattended Vehicles

We’re very proud of our state, but this is one blemish on our record. Unfortunately, from 1998-2014, we experienced 95 deaths by children in unattended vehicles, ranking us #1 in the nation. Florida ranks #2 with 68. And California, even though it has 12 million more people, has less than half our total, with 43 […]

4 Things You Should Not Do After a Car Accident

Please! Don’t do any of these things after you get in a car accident. You may forfeit your ability to collect money ever again. Learn what not to do.
Yes, it’s sad that you can say things which could ruin your ability to be compensated for your injuries, even when you’re not at fault for the auto accident and deserve to be made whole.

But it’s the reality you live in and face every day. It’s the way the world works. And you want to make sure that you can collect for your injuries when you do deserve to do so.

Fortunately, it’s not overly tricky. You just have to follow a few simple rules of things NOT to do or say following a car crash.

Don’t Say You’re “Sorry”

You’re a good-hearted person. You want the other person to feel better. You can try to comfort them. That won’t hurt you.

But don’t […]
