Posting on social media following a collision

There are a wide variety of factors to take into consideration when it comes to motor vehicle collisions, especially in recent years. In the digital age, many people use social media on a daily basis. While these networking platforms can be a great way to keep in touch with loved ones and friends, they may cause certain problems if a user is not careful. For example, someone who is considering legal action or filing a claim with an insurance company following a motor vehicle crash may hurt their case by sharing certain types of information on social media.

Liability for self-driving cars

Self-driving cars have been talked about for years, and the reality seems to be getting closer. However, residents in Hawaii will still have to wait for them to get past the testing stage, as some of the tests demonstrate the technology is not working properly. Recent accidents also beg the question of who is responsible in the event of a crash.

Emergency room errors can lead to serious injuries

No one wants to have to go to the emergency room, but those who go expect the best care and possible outcome. Patients in Hawaii should be aware that medical errors in emergency situations are quite common, and it is important to understand how they occur and what can be done to decrease the incidence of harm.

Delayed symptoms related to car accidents

Car accidents in Hawaii often result in physical damage to the vehicles involved, and sometimes the driver and/or passengers experience pain as well. The thing is that symptoms related to these crashes do not always show up right after the accident. Victims need to be aware of these symptoms because some of them are indications of serious injury that needs attention right away.

Motorcycles and safety

Hawaii, with its great weather and beautiful scenery, is the perfect place for a motorcycle ride. However, motorcycles pose a danger on the road, and riders can sustain major injuries and even death when accidents occur. To reduce the number of crashes, there are a number of safety considerations that should be followed.

Coming to terms with sudden, unexpected loss of a loved one

You may recall the day you learned of your loved one's death with great detail and clarity. On the other hand, perhaps you can't really remember much of anything that happened in the near aftermath of tragedy. After receiving a phone call, informing you of a terrible accident, your whole world seemed to come to a screeching halt. In the days and weeks that followed, you wondered if you'd survive your own grief.
