Piecing your life together after a scooter accident

Traffic accidents happen in many different ways and they involve different types of vehicles. While trucks, SUVs and smaller cars are often involved in wrecks, it is important to recognize that motorcyclists, bicyclists and those riding scooters or mopeds may also be involved in a serious collision. If you have been hit by a reckless driver while operating a scooter, you may be going through all sorts of different challenges. From physical pain due to an injury to mental trauma and financial consequences, these accidents can be overwhelming.

How can I avoid road rage?

Driving angry is never a good thing. Not only can it distract you from the task at hand, it can also result in dangerous altercations with you and other motorists. Knowing how to avoid road rage behaviors, both in yourself and when other drivers display them, will help keep you safe on the road. That's why Geico offers the following tips to Houston motorists. 

Allergies and large truck collisions

Large truck crashes happen for countless reasons, but there are a number of risks associated with certain seasons. For example, inclement weather during the winter (such as ice and snow) can lead to a crash. However, even when weather conditions improve in the spring, there may be other seasonal issues to take into consideration, such as allergies. Many people struggle with seasonal allergies and this can be especially problematic for those who drive large trucks. In this post, we will examine some of these concerns.

What risks do antidepressants carry?

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are a common treatment for depression and other mental health disorders. While these drugs have helped many people lead happy and fulfilling lives, they're not without their risks. Harvard Health Publishing explains some of the most common risks so you can make the best decisions when it comes to your mental health and wellness. 

Big fines for distracted big rig drivers

Tractor trailer trucks line Texas highways as they deliver goods ranging from produce to cars. Even when unloaded, big rigs can weigh more than 20 times as much as your passenger vehicle. Devastating injuries often result when 18-wheelers and cars collide. At Charles J. Argento, we understand that big truck accidents are different from regular car crashes and fight to get clients the compensation needed to pay for medical bills and long-term expenses.
