Injured in a car accident? Take these steps FIRST

No matter who you are, your lifestyle, or where you live, accidents can happen to anyone. If you have never suffered an injury in an accident, be grateful for your good fortune - but when you suffer an injury in a car accident, it is often confusing to know exactly what to do.

When different parenting styles mean intervention is needed

You and your ex may not agree on what parenting style should be used. For example, you may let your kids stay up later than your ex, who puts them to bed at eight o'clock. Your ex, though, maybe be fine with giving them fast food, when you try to cook organic options.

Be careful about taking debt back after bankruptcy and divorce

Did you know that you can use bankruptcy to remove your liability for certain debts, but, if you then file for divorce, you can take that debt back on? This is easy to avoid if you're watching for it, so you don't want to make any mistakes that would immediately put you back in debt after the split.

People cause 94 percent of all car accidents

An accident can happen so quickly that you may have no real idea what went wrong or how the accident took place until after the fact. In the moment, you're just suddenly aware of flashing lights, a jarring impact and the chaotic noise of the crash. In the end, both you and the other driver may get out of your cars thinking that it was a freak accident.

Could vehicle to vehicle communication prevent car crashes?
