When most people think of a DUI (driving under the influence) charge, the image of a drunk driver comes to mind. But, intoxicants other than alcohol are just as dangerous for drivers hitting the road. Driving under the influence of marijuana can be just as perilous.

A serious blow to the head could change your life forever, not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well. A study performed by the Canadian Medical Association in February 2016 showed that people who sustained concussions were three times as likely to commit suicide. More studies showed that about 53% of TBI patient suffered from major depressive episodes in the year following their injury.

In April, Fiat Chrysler Automotive (FCA US), voluntarily recalled 32,267 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles that were manufactured between May 2015 and February 2016. The recall is due to a problem with the gear selector. Drivers erroneously conclude that the vehicle is in park when it is not in park can get hit by the vehicle and suffer injuries when they attempt to exit the vehicle while the engine is still running but the parking brake is not engaged according to a National Highway Transportation Safety Administration NHTSA recall safety report.

Regular readers of our blog will know that we have covered the costs associated with medical malpractice from time to time. Most of the time, we dismantle arguments that tort reform will decrease the cost of healthcare. We’ve been fighting Bills in front of our legislators to put an end to this nonsense once and for all. So that’s why an article we ran across on The True Cost of Healthcare, by Dr. David Belk, MD, covering the real cost of medical malpractice insurance, caught our eye.

Most people we talk to think multi-car accidents are rarer than single car accidents. That is true, but not by much. In 2014, 962 people died in Tennessee as the result of a multi-vehicle crash. That accounts for 44% of all fatal auto accidents that year, which falls in line with the national average.

Summer is here, and along with it will come the bane of most drivers’ existence – highway construction zones. You are traveling along the highway at a safe speed and making good progress toward your destination when a slowdown occurs and you look to see the cause of it: road work ahead.

In a recent story out of North Carolina, one car crash victim learned the hard way that not everyone cares about the victim. The hospital only billed the auto insurance carrier, not the health insurance – not even after the policy ran out. So the victim of the crash, Jessica Mounce, was left on the hook to foot that bill herself.
