Know What to do if You’re in an Auto Accident

Great tips!

Gerry Own

(ARA) – No one wants to think about being in an auto accident. But even the safest drivers can be involved in an accident and the fact is that if it happens to you, you may be upset, frightened and not thinking straight. Knowing what to do and being prepared will help you deal with an accident.

The best defense is a good offense, and prevention is the easiest way to avoid an accident. Make sure your car is in good working order so that you don’t stall out on the highway going 60 miles an hour.

Have you been distracted before?

Law Offices Of Jeffrey E. Martin, LLC

Unfortunately, one of the growing areas of motor vehicle collisions are those incidents involving “distracted driving.” Although people enjoy and even feel compelled to stay “up-to-date” by constantly reading texts or making cell phone calls, such technological advances are taking a toll on roadway safety. Although we have all heard and read about the dangers of either texting or talking on cell phones while driving, it is important to note that even in a supposedly “safe” mode of using a cell phone, such as with a hands-free speaking device, medical studies have shown that even speaking through a hands-free device can adversely affect a driver’s attention.  Medical research based upon the brain scan studies has shown conclusively that our brains simply cannot focus on more than one task at a time.
