What rights do I have if my car is recalled?

Whenever you climb into your personal vehicle, or any other vehicle for that matter, you have a right to expect that it's equipped with all the safety bells and whistles mandated by law. Seat belts are a must on most vehicles these days, even those that predate the 1960s. In the 1990s, air bags became standard equipment in all cars and light trucks.

Do car accident settlements adequately compensate head trauma?

If you survived a crash with no broken bones, you might have good reason to consider yourself lucky. However, other injuries may be less visible, but potentially just as intrusive. Specifically, about one in five cases of traumatic brain injuries are caused by a motor vehicle accident. Another 28 percent of TBI injuries are caused by a slip and fall incident.

TVs, video camera turns regular truck into 'safety' truck

About a month ago, we wrote a post about trucks and the trucking industry, and how the National Transportation Safety Board wants fewer accidents involving tired truck drivers. That's just one of many areas involved in the trucking industry where improvements could cut down on potential accidents. Another factor that the trucking industry could try to address is the size of the trucks -- but that would hinder they're ability to transport cargo across the country.

What responsibilities might I have as an accident victim?

If you have suffered injury in an accident due to someone else's negligence, you have a right to seek due compensation for the pain, suffering and financial losses you suffer. The key word in that first sentence may well be "due." In the legal context it usually means what is suitable, appropriate or correct for the circumstances of a given case.
