Whiplash is Frequent and Dangerous

People don't take whiplash seriously until they suffer one. These injuries are very frequent, every 15 seconds in the United States, and can cause permanent even progressive injury and pain from even a low speed accident. Cars are getting better at protecting you but trucks or cars with trailer hitches can send all of the force in a rear end collision right to your body. Of great importance in protecting you are the head restraints in your car or truck. Some seats have head rests built in. These are very good at protecting motorists. The adjustable kind MUST be properly adjusted to work well. Place the head rest so the middle of it touches the back of your head, then raise it another inch. The best driving position is with your head 3-4 inches from the head rest. Use them in both the front and back seats. Please keep in mind that people with long thin necks and people with pre-existing neck problems are most subject to injury. Also people whose neck or body is turned at the time of the accident or suffer an unexpected impact are more likely to be injured. Good advice is to choose a safe car and drive safely and always wear your seat beat.

Auto Seat Belts, Saving Lives Since 1968 Part III

History shows laws requiring placement and use of seatbelts work and have saved many hundreds of thousands of lives the United States, as well as saved billions in expenses and costs of injuries. Not surprisingly, stronger laws do help at getting people to buckle up. Recently, a number of States have enacted "primary enforcement" laws which allow an officer to stop and ticket a motorist if he or she sees a driver not wearing their seatbelt. Weaker laws just allowed a ticket if the motorist was stopped for something else and was not wearing a seat belt.

There are those hardheads that don't or won't wear seatbelts, but what do they cost the rest of us?

For those who dislike government action, here's something to think about. The Government mandated seatbelts as standard equipment in 1968 and, although usage was low at first, 329,715 lives have been saved since. Other Government supported safety changes have saved another 300,000 lives.

Who Stands Up For Individuals In The Florida Legislature?

MONEY TALKS especially in politics. Every year the business representatives, trade organizations, lobbyists, and insurance companies whose money puts legislators in office, show up in Tallahassee to get their money's worth. They want new laws passed that help business not people.

Auto Crashes are the Leading Cause of Death for Our Young Adults

Among the saddest duties any personal injury lawyer can perform is representing the family of a teen or young adult killed in an auto collision. All the love and hope that go into raising a child is dashed because of someone's momentary carelessness.
