Will my auto insurance cover me in a bicycle accident?

The roadways in Montana have to be shared by a range of people. Large, trucks, cars, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians all occupy the roads. To keep everyone safe, there is a list of rules that have to be followed. When someone fails to follow a road law, accidents happen. If you are a bike rider, you could even cause an accident. 

Leading causes of distracted driving

It seems like every day in Billings, there is another horrific car accident. Perhaps the weather plays a role in some of the these, or maybe they happen due to the sudden appearance of random wildlife in the road. While these factors might contribute to some car wrecks, studies have shown that approximately 25 percent of traffic accidents occur because of distracted driving.

What risks are associated with hip replacement?

As you age, your body begins to wear out. Depending on things like activities you've done, work habits, genetics and other factors, certain parts of your body may wear quicker than others. One common area is the hips. It is normal for people in Montana to need a hip replacement as they age because this joint has a lot of wear and tear. 

How dangerous is it to be a truck driver?

There seems to be a lot of advertising for people to fill truck driving jobs in Montana. While these jobs usually offer stability and good pay, they are also among the most dangerous in the country. According to Truck Driving Jobs, truck drivers have the most number of fatalities of any job. Most accidents happen in summer, which suggests driving conditions are not as much to blame as traffic conditions. 

Car seat effectiveness may be hindered by winter coats

As cold weather sets in around Montana, parents will start to bundle up their children when they are leaving home. While fluffy coats, snuggly hats and wooly mittens are intended to keep children warm and safe, the coats at least could actually be harming children and putting them at risk. It has been found that puffy winter coats can reduce the effectiveness of child safety seats in vehicles.
