Car Accidents…and Insurance Rates

By Car Accident Help on July 18, 2017

insurance-claim-formAccidents happen for many reasons. Some are due to the failure of a driver to follow the rules of the road (or the law itself), some are due to distractions within a vehicle, still others are due to poor judgment, and some are due to the unavoidable acts of others on the road.

Many people fear reporting accidents to their insurance companies because of concerns that their rates will drastically rise due to the accident. It depends on the circumstances of the case; so people shouldn’t automatically assume that. And isn’t the risk of an accident the very reason we have insurance in the first place?

Which Cities Had the Safest Drivers in 2016?

By Car Accident Help on July 5, 2017

car-accidentAccording to the Allstate insurance company, in a report of the best drivers across the U.S. in 2016, the top three cities were Brownsville, Texas; Kansas City, Kansas; and Madison, Wisconsin.

Among the top 200 cities in the report, only two of them were in Oklahoma: Tulsa and Oklahoma City. Many of the safest cities are relatively small, at least within the top 10, though it is interesting to note that Reno, Nevada is among them. Poor weather certainly impacts vehicle safety across the country, though driver caution and attentiveness tend to most heavily impact driver safety.

Does My Insurance Protect Against a Lawsuit?

By Car Accident Help on June 27, 2017

insuranceThe short answer is no: insurance does not necessarily protect you against a lawsuit, and someone can, potentially, sue you for more than your insurance covers. This depends on the specific details of the given situation; but it is important to understand that insurance coverage does not always matter when a personal civil lawsuit is filed in Oklahoma. There are some situations in which insurance may be sufficient and no suit occurs, but this is certainly not a guarantee. Read the rest »

How to Tell If Your Child’s Car Seat Is Expired

By Car Accident Help on June 6, 2017

baby-car-seatWhile expiration dates on food like milk or bread can be easy to determine (and make sense), the idea of a child’s car seat expiring might seem a bit strange. Nevertheless, just like many other products, a car seat has a limited lifespan and should only be used for the amount of time it was manufactured for. Understanding how and when a child’s car seat expires is very important for ensuring child safety in vehicles throughout Oklahoma.

The thought of a child’s car seat expiring like a carton of old milk may seem odd at first, but it does make sense. Most car seats are made using plastic, fabric, and similar materials. All of these materials have limited life-spans based on how long they are meant to be used—especially on items that are pulled on and undergo quite a bit of use and abuse. For example, the plastics used to make a car seat can only hold up for a certain amount of daily use, hot summers, and additional wear-and-tear before they begin to break down and no longer provide the protection you rely on.
