New technology could detect a distracted driver

Regular readers of this blog are probably well aware of the dangers of distracted driving. Smart phones, GPS, or merely changing the radio or speaking with a passenger can take one's attention away from the road. When this happens, a motorist's driving ability is compromised. He or she may unintentionally speed, cross a center line, or fail to stop at a stop light. Far too often, these car accidents result in serious injuries to innocent individuals. But could modern technology curtail distracted driving and its dangers?

How do drugs increase the risk of a car accident?

Driving can be a dangerous activity, even when motorists are well-rested, sober, and attentive behind the wheel. Yet, far too often motorists take actions that increase the risk of a car accident. It doesn't take a genius to recognize the dangers of drunk driving, as local and state laws have attempted to curtail it and public service initiatives have attempted to raise awareness. However, drunk driving isn't the only kind of impaired driving that is becoming a problem in Tennessee. Drugged driving is also becoming more prevalent, leading to more wrecks, injuries, and deaths.

Some of the lesser known wrongful death damages

The severity of a car accident can range from a minor dent, as when a car backs into another, to those that result in fatalities. When death occurs in a tragic wreck, surviving family members can be left utterly devastated. The emotional void left behind can bring on depression and anger, and the financial loss can thrust stress and anxiety onto an unsuspecting family. Although these families may need time to get their affairs in order, many creditors won't wait. They will demand payment, and those who fail to meet their obligations may have their cars, homes, and overall financial well-being placed in jeopardy.
