    Drunk Driving by the Numbers

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Every year, drinking and driving results in serious auto accidents, devastating personal injuries, and thousands of dollars in auto and property damage. Still more concerning is the fact that three people are killed in alcohol-related auto accidents in the United States every two hours. This means that around 13,000 Americans die every year in accidents that are caused by alcohol. These auto accidents cost an estimated $37 billion each year. Men account for the overwhelming majority of drunk driving accidents—in fact, male drivers cause 81% of auto accidents related to alcohol.

    Creating a Summer Car Accident Kit for Your Car

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Even the safest drivers cannot always avoid an auto accident with another motorist, but taking just a few precautionary measures can help reduce your chance of personal injury after an auto accident or breakdown. Stay safe on the road by packing an emergency kit with a first aid kit, reflective blanket and rain jacket, and roadside flares to alert passing motorists in the event of an accident. You should also invest in a basic tool kit with a flashlight and extra batteries, a tire pressure gauge, and jumper cables.

    Reasons to Not Drive Distracted

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Distracted driving results in countless auto accidents and serious personal injuries every year. Watch this video to learn why you should never drive while you are distracted in any way.

    One of the most common causes of driving distractions is the use of a cell phone. Using a cell phone to talk or send text messages is not only risky; it is now illegal in many states. For example, Maryland drivers who use mobile devices must activate their phones’ hands-free option. As studies show, eliminating this driving distraction decreases accident rates and saves lives.

    Virginia roadways can be dangerous. If you have been hurt in an auto accident that wasn’t your fault, contact the Auto Accident Law Firm of Kevin Paul by calling (703) 330-6300 today. Our auto accident attorneys can help you determine if you may be entitled to compensation.

    Avoid Summer Car Accidents with These Maintenance Tips

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Did you know that you are more likely to have an auto accident during the summer? With more and more drivers hitting the road for vacations and teenagers who are out of school spending extra time behind the wheel, public roadways are simply more crowded. Although even cautious drivers cannot always avoid auto accidents, keeping your car well-maintained is essential for avoiding both accidents and breakdowns. Stay safe this summer with these auto maintenance tips.

    Check Your Brakes

    Brakes are the most important safety feature on any vehicle, and these essential parts can easily wear down. If the lining on your brake pad or brake shoe has deteriorated past the minimum thickness, you can be seriously injured in an auto accident. Be sure to have your brake linings checked by an auto shop, especially if you hear loud scraping or grinding sounds or if your brake pedal suddenly becomes either soft or hard.

    Check Your Tires

    If you are like most drivers, you tend to overlook checking your tire pressure. Unfortunately, under-inflated, over-inflated, or worn-down tires become especially dangerous during the summer. As your tire pressure changes with the rising temperatures, remember to regularly check your tire pressure with a hand gauge.

    Change Your Oil

    Most cars should have their oil and oil filter changed approximately every 3,000 miles. If you have been spending extra time on the road this summer, your engine may be especially prone to overheating. Keep an eye on your total mileage and check your oil at home with an oil dipstick to make sure you have enough oil and that it is a brownish yellow color.

    If you have been in an auto accident caused by someone else’s negligent, distracted, or reckless driving this summer, contact an auto accident attorney who will fight for you. The Woodbridge VA Auto Accident Law Firm of Kevin Paul Childers focuses on auto accidents, and we know what it takes to win satisfying settlements and achieve positive trial outcomes.

    Before you hit the road this summer, it’s important to prepare your vehicle just in case you are involved in an auto accident, have your car break down, or get lost. Watch this video for tips on how to stay safe on the road.

    Before you travel, always check your car’s tire pressure, oil, and fluids. If you are heading out on a road trip, bring extra maps, and don’t just rely on your car’s GPS. Finally, equip your car with a first aid kit, poncho, roadside flares, and jumper cables. You should also pack a flashlight with an extra battery in case of a nighttime accident.
