Owning a recreational vehicle (RV) is a favorite past-time of millions of Americans and Michigan is no exception. There are RVs of all shapes and sizes roaming the roads of America at any given time. These vehicles make it easy for people to travel the country, see nature, visit parks and other destinations and save a little money along the way. But, what if you are involved in an RV accident? Here's what you should do to handle such a situation.
The use of recreational vehicles such as jet skis, snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles (ATV) can be dangerous, even for some of the most experienced operators to ride on.

Intentional distractions like sending text messages, you're sure, are even worse.
If you suffer a back injury in a car accident, you may need to have surgery and work with a professional physical therapist. However, even as your injury heals, you may still want to have some things you can do at home to promote health and further healing.
As the Michigan winter draws closer, you may be thinking about getting the snowmobile out. It's a great way to actively enjoy the outdoors in the next few months when snow begins to blanket the state.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data shows that distracted driving is one of the top reasons that motorists either nearly miss crashes or are involved in them. Although texting and driving has been illegal in the state of Michigan since July of 2010, motorists often take a chance and do it anyway. Countless pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists and vehicle operators lose their lives because of this.
