The do's and don'ts following crash with uninsured motorist

Car accidents are scary and stressful enough. Add in the fact that you might have to deal with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, and the stress levels can become unbearable. Victims of accidents involving uninsured motorists need to know what to do following such an accident so they can prepare for what lies ahead of them. We will outline those steps in today's post.

Steps to take after an animal bite

Animals are some of the most beautiful living organisms nature has to offer. They can be majestic, yet also very dangerous. Even trained animals, such as pets, can be dangerous at times. Animals have an innate tendency to bite, especially if they are provoked. If you are bitten by an animal, these are the steps to take immediately following the incident.

Truck accident logo liability: What is it?

Have you ever been traveling in the interstate -- perhaps to visit some loved ones on a holiday weekend -- and giant big rig passes you buy with an obnoxious advertisement plastered on the side of it?

It is no surprise that large trucks can cause catastrophic accidents. The most basic laws of physics teach us that the larger a vehicle is the more mass it has. The more mass it has, the more difficult it is to stop. When a large truck crashes into a smaller passenger vehicle, those within the smaller passenger vehicle experience a huge amount of force — often resulting in serious injuries.

Car wreck leaves victim's home, property damaged

When most of us think about damages from car crashes, we probably imagine vehicles being destroyed - but other types of property can also be affected by collisions. This is demonstrated by a recent chain-reaction car wreck in Nashville, Tennessee, in late May, which left a homeowner looking for answers after damages to his house. Official reports show that the chain-reaction crash totaled elements of the man's house and other personal effects.
