Autonomous car safety improvements targeted

When it comes to autonomous vehicles, Indiana residents may well have varying views on the matter. Some people might be wary of trusting their lives to a computer while others might believe that a computer may be more likely to operate a vehicle safely than a human being could. Regardless of one's position, it is important for drivers to be aware of the type of technologies being used in these vehicles as they are likely to be on the road with people-driven vehicles sooner rather than later.

Communicating with your insurance company after an accident

After a car accident, there are certain things that you must do. Contacting your insurance company should be one of the first things on your list. You pay your insurer for situations like this, so you can get needed funds for repairs, medical bills, and other related expenses.

Two children killed, mother injured in bizarre wreck

When most people in Indiana think about car crashes they might think about things like a rear-end fender bender that occurs because someone is driving too close to someone else and cannot stop in time. Making a turn in front of another car without sufficient time to complete it may also be a typical type of accident that people think of. However, some wrecks are so odd that they are definitely not the first thing that would come to one's mind.

RV collides with car, sending eight to hospitals

Summer is the time when many people take to the open road for vacations in Indiana. Even with the relative ease of air travel today, the good old-fashioned road trip maintains a staple of many people's favorite and most nostalgic getaways. However, when a vehicle accident happens, the glamour and excitement of that road trip can be lost in an instant. Instead, families may be left with tragic memories and even lifelong injuries.

Potential drunk driver kills self, two passengers

When hearing reports about accidents involving semi trucks or other large commercial vehicles in Indiana, it is understandable that people's minds might initially think that the responsibility for the accident be with the driver of the truck. Trucker fatigue among other factors may well contribute to some dangers indeed.

Marijuana said to increase accident claims

While Indiana has not legalized the use of recreational marijuana, people from Indiana who may be travelling to any of the places in the country where it is legal this summer should be aware of the potential risks on the road. Alcohol is not the only substance that may cause a driver to be impaired and may therefore contribute to a motor vehicle accident. While proponents of legalized pot of course assert that its use is completely safe, some new research may show otherwise.

Seven people taken to hospital after serious crash

Even when an accident is only a minor fender bender and no people are injured, Indiana residents can find it difficult to work effectively with insurance companies to process claims and ensure that their rights are properly protected. As accidents become more complex with either greater amounts of damage, the inclusion of physical injuries or even death to people and perhaps more than one or two vehicles involved, the challenges only escalate.

After a serious accident occurs, Indiana residents have every right to start thinking about how they can or should seek justice and compensation for their losses and injuries.

In the case of one crash that happened over a year ago in Clay County, a criminal path has led to some resolution recently.
