What should you do after a rear-end collision?

A rear-end accident may seem like it comes out of nowhere. Unlike a head-on collision, you usually don't see a rear-end collision coming, so you have no time to prepare yourself for the imminent danger. As a result, you may suffer injuries like whiplash or others due to the impact that you weren't prepared for.

Halloween is a danger to young children for many reasons

With Halloween stores popping up all around town, you've probably realized the holiday is just a few short months away. Soon, kids will be piling into cars and walking around neighborhoods in their handmade and store-bought costumes. While that's great for the economy and a good way for neighborhoods to come together, it's also a danger to the children who participate in the holiday.

6-vehicle crash leaves 3 with injuries in Connecticut

Car crashes can change lives in a moment. Many of them are avoidable, especially when it comes to those in intersections. If drivers pay attention, take turns or follow the appropriate signals and stay aware of their surroundings, it's possible to avoid most accidents completely.

Woman fighting for her life after pedestrian accident

Traffic accidents can happen anywhere, but they shouldn't take place when there are plenty of markings, stop signs or other traffic signals. For example, if you're crossing the road with a WALK sign and are in a crosswalk, there is really no reason that you should have to fear for your life.

Serious crash leaves at least 1 badly injured in Connecticut

When a person gets behind the wheel while intoxicated, he or she puts the lives of others at risk. Unfortunately, some people believe that it's perfectly acceptable to do so, even though there is plenty of evidence to the contrary.

Fight for what you deserve after a crash with a drunk driver

You headed out for a night on the town knowing that there would be people intoxicated around you, but you didn't think anyone would be on the roads while drunk. Unfortunately, one of those drivers collided with you as you crossed the street, and now you have serious injuries that need consistent, long-term care.

Teen killed in rollover accident in Connecticut

It's always a tragedy when a teenager or child is killed in a car accident. Parents and families feel the pain of the loss, and entire communities who participated in the child or teen's upbringing, schooling and other activities mourn the loss. In many cases, the death is made worse knowing that it could have been prevented.

This is how a traumatic brain injury changes your life

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when the brain is impacted by an outside force. Usually, that force is violent, like hitting your head on the ground or on a window during a car crash. Traumatic brain injuries range from minor concussions to aneurysms and other serious conditions. To diagnose the condition, your doctor may need to perform a magnetic resonance image (MRI).

What are some injuries you might not notice after a crash?

After a car crash, you might feel okay. It's a false sense of security, though, because many injuries that people suffer in crashes don't emerge until later on, when the adrenaline from the crash wears off. The body creates the burst of adrenaline as a fight-or-flight response to protect you, but it can hinder your ability to know if you're hurt. That's why it's always important to go to the hospital after a crash, even if you think you're okay.
