North Carolina drivers should know how to avoid car accidents

Motor vehicle accidents occur every day across the country, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety wants drivers to understand that there are ways to avoid some of the most frequent crash types. Drivers need to be aware that modern technology can assist as great tools in newer vehicles, but there are also several easy-to-implement practices that will assist drivers with overall safer vehicle operations.

The most common accidents include front- and side-impact wrecks along with rear-end crashes and parking lot accidents. Many newer vehicles can come equipped with technologically advanced systems such as lane-maintaining and automatic braking features. These devices not only alert drivers to a possible dangerous situation, but they can also control the steering and braking of vehicles. Forward-collision warning gadgets and rear-view cameras are more tools designed to protect drivers from getting into accidents.

While the new systems are great at helping drivers prevent accidents, there are several tried-and-true driving practices that go a long way in assisting motorists. Weather conditions are often a big factor in auto accidents. Drivers need to regulate their vehicle maneuvers and take extra precautions when roads are wet or icy. Another good way to avoid motor vehicle accidents is to steer clear of distractions. Using a cellphone or adjusting the radio, among several other bad habits, can lead to diverting a driver's attention. Drivers should also watch their speed and be sure to not follow other vehicles too closely.

Auto collisions can cause significant bodily harm depending on the circumstances. There may be many reasons for injured parties to retain an attorney to file a civil claim for them. It may be possible for a claim to be negotiated by a personal injury attorney and settled out of court.
