Do you know how to avoid a rear-end collision?

Do you what the most common type of car accident is here in the United States? It's a rear-end collision. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), these type of accidents comprise almost one-third of all collisions.

While these type of accidents are typically not as deadly to vehicle occupants as a T-bone or a head-on collision, they still have the potential to cause significant property damage and injuries. Below are four suggestions for avoiding a rear-end collision.

Winter driving tips for Boston residents

Boston winters are legendary for massive snow accumulations when a Nor'easter blows through the city. But it doesn't take a major winter storm to make driving during a New England winter dangerous.

The time to prepare you and your vehicle for wintry weather conditions is before the storm hits. You should have a good understanding about features on your car or truck like antilock brakes. These can work both for and against you when you try to drive in snow or on ice. Below are some tips to help keep you safer while driving this winter.

Tips for driving safely when traffic is heavy

Driving when traffic is heavy can be a maddening experience. It is imperative that you know the basic tips that can help you to do this safely. There is no room for drivers to operate their vehicles unsafely because of the inherent risk to others who share the road with them.

The last thing anyone needs is be involved in a crash when we are all just trying to make it to our destinations. It takes the cooperation of all drivers to keep the roads safe.

Safety tips all bicycle commuters should follow

If you live and/or work in or around the Boston area, you know there are bicyclists everywhere. As a bicycle commuter, you're well aware of the benefits, such as the ability to avoid traffic jams and the opportunity to save money on gas, while doing your part to save the environment.

Conversely, you're also familiar with the many risks of commuting on your bicycle. This is especially true in the winter when bikepaths may be snowy or icey, thereby increasing the chances of suffering an accident. 

4 common car insurance claim mistakes

The act of filing a car insurance claim is easy enough, but actually recovering damages for your injuries and related losses is challenging.

Many people who've been injured in a car accident want nothing more than to put this chapter of their life in the past. This leads them to make rash decisions, which allows their car insurance company to close their claim without paying out everything that's due to them.

Avoid these 3 post-accident mistakes

Imagine driving across town, on your way to work in Boston. Your day seems off to a good start until another driver suddenly plows into the back of your car at a stop light. Now, you have a damaged car and various aches and pains in your back and neck. But, what should you do? 

Avoiding costly mistakes after a wreck is just as important as reporting the wreck to your insurer, seeing a doctor to assess your injuries and taking your car to the repair shop for a quote. Here are a few things you shouldn't do after a motor vehicle collision.

4 safety tips for all pedestrians

Whether you are outside training for your next marathon or simply walking your dog, safety should always be a priority.

While drivers have a responsibility to be safe and avoid accidents with other cars, motorcycles, cyclists and pedestrians, you also have to take a certain amount of responsibility for your own safety. You simply can't trust someone else to make the right decisions to keep you safe.

Doctors use crash information when evaluating patients

Car wrecks can lead to serious injuries for the victims. While many people assume that the impact of the vehicle on the other vehicle is the only impact that your body has to deal with, that isn't the case. Automobile crashes actually have three impacts that can affect the victims.

The information from the crash can help doctors to determine how to evaluate a patient. They also depend on the reports from the patients regarding the pain they feel.

Spring and summer rainstorms can lead to injuries at stores

It was a long day at work. You know you need to pick up some basic staples at the store on the way home, like toothpaste or milk. It's starting to rain, so you find yourself jogging toward the front door. You walk into the store, pull down the hood of your coat and go to grab a cart.

Only you don't quite make it. The floor inside is soaking wet, you slip on the linoleum and wind up on your back. The world is spinning around you. A slip-and-fall only takes a few seconds to happen, and it can cause persistent injuries in some cases.

Do you know how Massachusetts car insurance really works?

Every time you get behind the wheel, you trust in your insurance provider to take care of you in the event of a collision or crash. Even minor motor vehicle accidents can have massive price tags with catastrophic consequences for the individuals involved.

A motor vehicle insurance policy helps protect you from the financial liabilities of a crash. It also protects everyone else on the road by ensuring they have access to compensation if you cause a crash. While you probably pay your insurance premium on time either monthly or semi-annually, you might not really understand how your liability policy works.
