The much-anticipated “wonderful time of the year” is finally here! While many of us have been working hard and adjusting our daily routines due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Thanksgiving presents a time where we can get together with our closest friends and family and remember what we are thankful for.

If you're planning to hit the road to spend the holiday with your family, remember that this season is one of the most traveled times of the year. Data from AAA found that nearly 50 million Americans traveled by car during Thanksgiving in 2019.

Ultimately, more vehicles on the road during this time means more congested roads, delays, and car crashes. While the risks of getting into an accident may be higher during this time period, there are steps you can take to ensure that you and your family get to your destination safely.

Because of this, it's essential to understand how to protect your rights from the moment of the accident to ensure that you are not wrongfully determined to be at fault.

Head-on collisions are some of the most violent types of car crashes. They often occur when a vehicle crosses a median or center-line and crashes into an oncoming vehicle. Unlike other accidents where one car may be stationary, head-on collisions involve two vehicles driving directly toward each other and crashing together.

They also regularly lead to fatal injuries. While head-on collisions only account for 2% of all accidents, they account for 10% of all vehicle accident-related fatalities. Some of the most common causes of head-on collisions include:

September is Baby Safety Month, a campaign dedicated to educating parents and caregivers on everything from the safe selection and use of products to creating safe environments for infants in your home.

In light of this time, our team is focusing on the safe use and installation of car seats. According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of death among children in the U.S., but many of these deaths are preventable.

Data from the agency shows that properly-installed car seats reduce the risk of injury in a crash by 71-82% for children, compared to seat belt use alone. Additionally, about 46% of car seats and booster seats are misused in a way that could reduce their effectiveness.
