Driving Safety Tips
Putting on your makeup, changing the radio station, passengers wrestling in the back seat. All of these can lead to losing focus and taking your eyes off the road. Avoiding accidents often require a split-second decision to brake or swerve, so eliminating distractions is vital to increase your odds.
Sometimes all it takes is that one moment when you take your eyes off the road to look at your phone or the commotion on the side of the road. There are many causes of car accidents, like distractions or sleep-deprivation. If you have been involved in a car accident at the fault of someone else, you may be entitled to compensation.
