Woman In Car Texting On Mobile Phone Whilst DrivingInfotainment is a new buzzword for everything that is both informative and entertaining. Infotainment pieces can be articles, blogs, and even videos. They can be found on our computers, our smartphones, and even in our cars. In fact, infotainment is everywhere –and this constant accessibility may be killing us.
The businessman using mobile smart phone while driving the carWhile most of us tend to think teens are the biggest texting offenders on the roadways, the surprising results of a recent study found middle-aged drivers have a high rate of collisions due to the use of their cell phones while driving. These results show that very few drivers really have a clear understanding of the risks associated with distracted driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported driver distraction was the primary cause of at least 18 percent of all auto crashes in 2012, with more than 3,300 people killed as a result. It is widely believed those numbers were actually much higher in 2012 because many of those who crash as a result of distracted driving do not admit that fact. Three years later, in 2015, the numbers are estimated to be as high as 30 percent or more.

We might call them “crazy,” a “slowpoke,” “Grandma,” or other names. In order to determine which driving personalities are the most common, drivers in the largest cities in the U.S. were asked specific questions. These questions included “How do you react to being tailgated,” “How do you react to being cut off,” “At what point on your gas gauge do you fill the tank,” and “What do you do if you miss  your exit?” Once all the answers were compiled, the following key types of driver personalities were revealed:
5 Most Common Driving DiversionsAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over one thousand people are injured every day in car accidents on U.S. highways. Contributing significantly to that number are distracted drivers. In fact, it is estimated that 10 people die each day in accidents caused by distracted drivers.
Businessman sending a text messageA large percentage of the cautions about driving are aimed directly at teen drivers. While it is true that teens send and receive a minimum of five times more texts each day than the average adult, they may actually be less dangerous while doing so behind the wheel. Let’s be clear—texting and driving is dangerous no matter who is doing it. That being said, a recent study from Wayne State University concluded millennials who text and drive are less dangerous than baby boomers who text and drive.
Mixed Race Woman with Smart Phone Texting and Driving.According to a recent national study, distractions are a more significant factor for teen driver car accidents than previously suspected. Conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, the study analyzed approximately 1,700 videos retrieved from crash vehicles. The videos, utilized by an independent program and intended to help motorists improve their driving performance, indicate that as many as 60% of moderate to severe crashes involve some type of driver distraction.
USA Today has issued a report about weather deaths in the United states. While tornadoes, hurricanes, and floods get the lion’s share of media attention, the majority of weather-related fatalities across the country occur when inclement weather causes car accidents. The Federal Highway Administration (FHA) says that over 7,000 people are killed in weather-related traffic crashes each year. They define a weather-related traffic crash as one that occurs in adverse weather: snow, heavy rain, ice, sleet, etc. Generally speaking, traffic accidents rarely make the news, outside of large, multi-vehicle pileups. Sheldon Drobot of the National Center for Atmospheric Research says that he would like to see a day when the increasingly advanced computer systems that cars have built in could share information, in order to help prevent some of these collisions. Have you or a loved one been seriously injured because of another driver’s carelessness? Speak with an experienced Denver auto accident attorney today to discuss your options. 7,000 fatalities per year due to weather-related traffic accidents is a tragically large number. In fact, it is roughly 20% of the more than 30,000 total traffic fatalities each year. This statistic really highlights the need for every driver to use caution when the weather turns bad. This means slowing down and allowing more following distance in bad conditions. It means allowing more time to get where you’re going. It means not allowing yourself to be in a rush, even if you’re running late. It may mean skipping trips in the car that aren’t necessary. All of these inconveniences are far less of a problem than a serious car accident in which someone is injured, or worse. john-fuller-personal-injury-attorneySpeak to dedicated, experienced Denver auto accident attorney John Fuller today if you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a Colorado car wreck.

JasonCam20111209 164Car accidents are a daily part of life in Colorado, with millions of car accidents occurring annually across the country. Understandably, many people get nervous when they are involved in a car accident. Knowing what to do after a car accident can be difficult in the best of times, but when someone is injured, the police are involved, and people are getting emotional, it can be very difficult to know how to react, and doing the wrong thing by mistake can be very easy. When the an accident results in serious injuries, it is a good idea to speak with an experienced Denver car accident lawyer. Here are some frequently asked questions about Colorado car accident.

Q: If I am in a car accident, and the police come, should I talk to them?

A: Yes, you should speak to the police. There is no need to tell the police more than simply the facts of the accident. You should not say anything that indicates blame; don’t accept blame for the accident, and don’t accuse anyone else of fault in the accident. The accident reports that police officers take are not always accurate, but it is best not to give the police a reason to think badly of you, either by claiming responsibility or by blaming someone else. A dedicated Denver car accident lawyer can often conduct an independent investigation, and demonstrate the facts of the case, even if the police officer got them wrong.

Q: Do I have to tell my insurance company about my car accident?

A: Yes, you do need to notify your insurance company. When it comes to insurance, in many cases the less you say the better, particularly when it comes to the other driver’s insurance company. This is another example of why it is a good idea to speak with a Denver car accident lawyer who can help ensure that nothing that is said to the insurance company is twisted in order to be used against you.

Q: What should I do if the car insurance company won’t pay my claim?

A: Unfortunately, it is standard practice at some insurance companies to simply deny large claims in order to protect their own bottom line. The claim you filed after your car accident has been denied, or if they are offering you a settlement that you don’t believe will cover the cost of the accident, speak with a dedicated Denver car accident attorney to discuss your options. John Fuller can help you understand your rights, and ensure that you receive the full, fair value of your insurance claim.
