A few minutes ago, you were driving along without a care in the world. But then the unthinkable happens: you witness a car accident right in front of you.
Your first thought: “If I left for work just a second earlier, that might have been me!”
Your next thought: “I hope nobody got hurt!”
And then inevitably, you ask yourself a flurry of questions: “I think that I should help, right?” “Should I call the police?” “Can I leave the scene if I wasn’t involved?”
Rideshare apps revolutionized the travel industry and made it easier to get around major cities. However, traveling by car remains a safety issue whether you’re driving or relying on a rideshare company like Uber or Lyft.
What do you do if you end up in a ridesharing accident?

Rear-end car accidents are some of the most common vehicle collisions that occur on American roads. Despite how widespread they are, they’re pretty challenging to navigate for the average person, especially when burdened with tens of thousands of dollars in damages.
Here are some of the most important factors to consider when estimating your settlement for rear end car accident, depending on the incident’s specifics.
Who is at fault in a car accident? When you’ve just been in a collision, that might not be your first concern.
However, when it comes time for the police and insurance to get involved, there’s no doubt you will want to know who is at fault.
Indeed, you will have to know.
Each year, millions of people around the country die after being involved in an accident. In fact, it’s one of the leading causes of accidental death in the United States.
As common as it is, though, many of us don’t know exactly what happens if someone dies in a car accident.
In this post, we’re going to go over how families can deal with the legal and financial ramifications of a traffic accident causing death.

You can’t afford to think about money at a time when your health is more important.
Unfortunately, these situations often come with strings attached.
The strings come from the hospital that treated you in the form of a hospital lien seeking a claim on any money you might receive from a lawsuit settlement involving the accident.
A personal injury hospital lien in Texas is common, and the Texas hospital lien statute currently doesn’t always protect the well-being of the injured.
Today, drivers seem to be busier and more distracted than ever.
Unfortunately, this can often be a recipe for parking lot mishaps. About one in five accidents happen in parking lots, even though nearly all of them are preventable.
If you were backing out of a parking space and got hit, the immediate question is often, “Is the person backing up always at fault?”
