Personal Injury and Pokemon Go

ABOUT POKEMON GO

Pokemon Go was released this summer and was an immediate hit. Created by Niantic, the augmented reality game allows players to "catch 'em all" on their cellular or tablet. When players open the application (app) on their device and begin traveling, Pokemon appear on the map of their device, which players then search for and capture. While there is a warning at the opening of the Pokemon Go app cautioning players to remain alert to the conditions around them as they play, injuries have still been reported where players did not heed this warning and have been injured or caused injury to others.

Car Accident & Crash Police Reports in North Carolina

When you or a loved one is involved in an auto accident resulting in death or injury, obtaining and understanding the accident report is extremely important. North Carolina auto accidents with property damage in excess of $1000, involving fatality or injury, or police seizure of a vehicle or vehicles require a North Carolina crash report be filled out by the responding officer. This report will include generalized information about the crash such as driver and owner information and road conditions, but may also include specialized information about contributing causes to the accident. If alcohol or drugs, reckless operation of a vehicle, texting while driving or other forms of distracted driving were involved in the accident, the crash report will list these and any other circumstances that may have contributed and were discovered in the investigation. Facts like these will be critical in determining who was at fault for the accident and proving your auto accident case.

Teen Driver Risk in Relation to Age and Passenger

Should your teen be driving with passengers? Are they putting themselves and their passengers at risk?May 2012 AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety published a study finding that, per mile driven,16 and 17-year-old drivers are more likely to be killed in a crash when they have young passengers in their vehicle than when they are driving alone. Their risk was found to increase by an estimated 44% when one passenger under age 21 (and no older passengers) was present in the teen driver's vehicle, approximately double when two passengers under age 21 were present, and more than quadruple when three or more passengers under age 21 were present. The effect of young passengers on the risk of involvement in any police-reported crash appeared to follow a similar pattern; however, increases in the risk of any police-reported crash were smaller and were not estimated precisely enough to even approach statistical significance. It is clear that discouraging teen drivers from carrying passengers and/or discouraging teenagers from riding with young inexperienced drivers would benefit the safety of teenagers both as drivers and as passengers. If your teen has been involved in an accident and you have questions, please contact us for us for a free consultation.
