Now that the nice weather is returning, the streets will again soon be filled with bicyclists who are out to get fresh air and/or get back in shape. Biking is more popular than ever.

Truck accidents can be a messy business for a number of reasons. One obvious reason is because of the size of trucks, meaning that trucking accidents will likely cause significantly more damage than similar accidents with other vehicles. Another reason is that there is more in question than simply the drivers of each vehicle: there is the…

Collaboration between advocacy groups and researchers in Boston yielded a map of bike crashes in the city. Boston Magazine explains that the image depicts crashes from the past three years; however, it’s not up-to-date enough to show the incidents that occurred in 2014. One of the crashes missing from the map involved a garbage truck driver and…

“Accidents happen” is a common phrase that we tell our children when they do small things such as spill milk or knock over a vase of flowers. Unfortunately for those who find themselves in automobile accidents, the phrase doesn’t have quite the same comforting feeling. Instead, it only serves to remind us of the frequently…
