5 key steps to keep kids safe in the car

You may not always think of it this way, but your children are trusting you with their lives every time you take them in the car. It is very important to take the proper steps to keep them safe. Remember that you cannot predict accidents, no matter how good of a driver you are.

Childhood brain injury can lead to a variety of other conditions

All parents dread the idea of their child suffering even a minor injury even though that's just part of childhood. However, a study just released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that over 1.8 million American children (approximately 2.5 percent) suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) before they reach their 17th birthday.

Company sued after Michigan teacher accidentally shoots boy

A man from the Grand Rapids area was sentenced to a jail term after a life was lost under his charge. The hunting safety instructor plead no contest to the charge of careless discharge of a firearm resulting in injury and death.

How dangerous is speeding?

You've broken the speed limit before. It feels like everyone does. Maybe you were late for work. Maybe you were on a long road trip, and you knew that setting your cruise control slightly above the speed limit would shave off some time. Maybe you just didn't see the road sign, and you were not sure what the speed limit was.

When can you file a wrongful death claim after a Michigan crash?

There is an inherent risk to traveling in a motor vehicle, even if you are a very careful driver. For many people, the worst-case scenario after a crash is the potential for someone they love to die. Sadly, that nightmare becomes reality for thousands of families every year.

The 3 times you should move someone who is injured

If someone is injured in a car accident, conventional wisdom says that you should not move him or her. Wait for the emergency response team to arrive on the scene. You do not want to cause more serious injuries, even if you have a natural inclination to help. Someone with a neck or back injury, for instance, could become paralyzed if you move him or her improperly at the crash site.

You could get post-traumatic stress disorder after a car crash

Even if you survive a serious car accident without significant physical injuries, that does not mean you did not suffer as a result of the crash. Studies have shown that about 9 percent of people who get in accidents end up with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
