Staying safe by steering clear of hazardous driving behaviors

It is no secret that being in a motor vehicle accident can be a stressful and harrowing experience. Even a minor accident could disrupt your plans for the day or leave you without transportation until your vehicle gets repaired, and this might prove to be one of the most favorable outcomes possible.

Unfortunately, there are a variety of scenarios in which the outcome of your accident may prove far worse, potentially leaving you with severe or even life-altering injuries. As you probably wish to avoid a similar situation, being prepared for the hazards you might encounter on Arizona roads could prove imperative.

Understanding the impact a collision could have on your health

As you travel along Arizona roads, you may give little thought to just how quickly disaster could strike. Unfortunately, a motor vehicle accident can take place at virtually any moment and under a multitude of scenarios, and the fallout of a crash could have a significant impact on your well-being.

Even if you take every possible measure to reduce the odds of a collision, you might not always be able to rely on others to do the same. Should the negligent actions of another driver create a dangerous scenario, you might not be prepared or even able to react to the situation quickly enough to steer to safety.

Distracted driving: phones are not the only problem

Do you feel like there are cell phones everywhere you look? Smartphones are just part of everyday life, so you probably do notice them in all kinds of places, like the grocery store, work and your own home. But just because people are using their phones everywhere does not mean that they should be. Distracted driving is a serious problem in Arizona, and some people are even causing accidents because they are looking at their phones instead of the road.

Part of the problem is that a lot of drivers do not believe that using phones is dangerous. A recent study from The Zebra found that only around 37% of drivers think that phones make it harder to drive safely. This means that most people think it is safe to do things like text, watch videos and take pictures while driving.

What will your future be like after a brain injury?

When a loved one suffers an injury as severe as a traumatic brain injury, the future may be uncertain. While it is possible to recover from some brain injuries, the process is slow, and many victims never regain their full cognitive function.

If your loved one has recently been in an accident that resulted in a brain injury, you likely have many questions for the medical team responsible for your loved one's care. Understanding how the brain can become injured in a life-changing way is the first step to determining the best path for the future of you and your loved one.

Would you know if you were too drowsy to drive? Many don't

Most people know that drinking and driving is a danger to themselves and others on the road. You take as many precautions as you can in order to avoid engaging in this dangerous behavior.

Even so, would you ever give a second thought to driving when you are tired? Most people don't. However, it can present the same dangers as drunk driving and distracted driving.

You’re hit by a drunk driver. Now what?

Car accidents are traumatic for anyone. There could be injuries, destruction of property, time away from work, you could lose your means of transportation. But if the driver who hit you was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash, that could lead to a whole new set of problems.

Knowing what to do at the scene of an accident is important, but it is even more critical when the person that hit you is impaired. Following the correct steps after the collision could make the ensuing legal process much easier.
