Is distracted driving really that big of a problem?

Distracted driving has been around as long as there have been automobiles. People eat, drink, look at maps and engage in any manner of activities other than driving and paying attention to the road. Knowing this begs the question of why is it so much more prevalent and dangerous now than in the past?

For one thing, there are many more vehicles on the roadways these days. Speed limits are faster, attention spans are shorter, and many people use electronic devices while behind the wheel.

5 tricks insurance companies use after a car accident

A Tennessee traffic accident can bring life as you know it to a halt, at least temporarily. While your focus may be on your recovery from your injuries and getting your family back on track, you will not be able to help worrying about the bills, car repairs and medical expenses piling up while you are out of work. You are really counting on the insurance claim to help your family through the tough times.
