Nobody wants to obsessively worry about their car insurance and coverage limits after they purchase a policy. Unfortunately, accidents can, and often do, happen, so it's a good idea to understand just exactly what is and isn't covered.
Labor Day is often considered the official end of summer. Because of this, people try to squeeze in as much summer fun as they can over the Labor Day weekend. Between cookouts, days on the boat, or trying to get in that last family vacation, there is a lot of potential for accidents. Here are some common Labor Day weekend accidents and how you can prevent them.
Every personal injury case is unique and has many factors that determine how much the case is worth. Everything from the severity of injury, to lost work, to even where the accident happened can make a tremendous difference in the final payout once everything is settled.
After a car or big truck accident has caused injury to you or your loved ones, the last thing you want to worry about is the bill. Paying for medical bills after an accident is not a fun topic, but one that must be discussed.
Many people who are in serious car accidents feel overwhelmed. The medical bills pile up, and after several calls with insurance, they're nowhere closer to receiving a settlement check to cover their expenses than when they first began.

Multi-car accidents are very common. It's estimated that up to ⅓ of all car accidents involve more than two vehicles. In Tennessee, 46% of all accidents were multi-vehicle accidents in 2015. Multi-car accidents also include pile-ups and chain-reaction accidents. Not many people know what to do in the instance of a multi-vehicle accident, but it's best to be prepared.
Obviously drivers want to avoid accidents of any type, since even the mildest of fender benders can still put a damper on your day and may lead to multiple phone calls with insurance companies.

Truck accidents come with all the annoyances and issues of other accidents, but because of the size of the large 18-wheelers or tractor-trailers involved, it is very likely that you and your car will suffer severe damages.

In Davidson and across the entire nation, trucks are always visible when one heads out on the road. Property being carted from place to place is a necessity and trucks are needed for this purpose.They can also be dangerous. The speed at which they're moving along with their intimidating size are bad enough. But when the driver might be violating federal trucking regulations when it comes to the maximum amount of time they can be on the road, everyone in the truck's path can be in jeopardy.
