Safety is crucial when getting on and off a boat

People who are nervous about boating often are most afraid about being out on the open water -- and, more specifically, the possibility of going overboard. However, you can also be seriously injured while getting on and off a boat.

Can I sue in a no-fault auto insurance state like Michigan?

Michigan is a no-fault auto insurance state. This means that if you get into an accident, then you can file a claim with your insurance company under your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. You're unable to sue the other motorist who may have struck you in a no-fault state like Michigan.

Remember that pain after a car accident can have a delayed onset

If you have been involved in a car accident in the last few months, you may have initially thought that you had not suffered any major injuries. After the adrenaline wore off and the bruises went away, you may have been confident that you had managed to avoid any long-lasting injury or pain.

Pedestrians can minimize their risk of becoming a statistic

Every year, thousands of pedestrians are struck and killed by motorists in this country. We all think that we're too careful for this to happen to us. However, even when pedestrians obey traffic signals and only cross the street in designated crosswalks, there's no guarantee that a driver won't hit them.

Abuse and neglect can occur at assisted living facilities

People typically associate abuse and neglect of seniors with nursing homes rather than assisted living facilities. After all, people in assisted living are typically healthier and more self-reliant than those in nursing homes. They often have their own apartments and can be just about as independent as those living on their own. With our senior population growing and people living longer, the U.S. has nearly twice as many assisted living facilities as nursing homes.

If you have a driver's license and own a vehicle, there is always a risk that you will become involved in a collision. This is true even if you are not actively using your vehicle. For example, it may be damaged even when it's parked. This is why you must purchase auto insurance. Not only is it a legal obligation, but it can prevent you from needing to pay the huge amount of expenses that can arise from a catastrophic car accident, which can often amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

What to look for when buying a car for your teen driver

If your teen is getting their driver's license soon and will be needing a car of their own, it may be tempting to give them one of your older vehicles or buy a used one to save some money. However, your first priority should be their safety.
