What should you do after an accident?

When residents in Maryland like you are involved in car accidents, you may not be aware of all of the red tape and complexities there are surrounding the legal aspects of it. At the Law Offices of Scott N Bergman LLC, we give you information on what to keep an eye out for when dealing with the aftermath of a crash.

Certainly improved safety has been put forth as a primary benefit of these vehicles but just how might this be achieved?

What should I do in a hit-and-run?

Keeping teens safe on the roads

With the return of summer comes BBQs, concerts and road trips, but for Maryland teens it also means the return of a deadly driving season.

Consumer views on autonomous car safety

Maryland residents who are concerned about their safety on the road may naturally be watching the evolution of self-driving vehicle technology carefully. Certainly an increase in public safety is a primary motivator for adopting either fully autonomous vehicles or at least the use of vehicle that include some autonomous driving features. But, while companies in a variety of industries seem all but in a race to get these vehicles and features to market, it is interesting to step back and see just what consumers really think about it all.

How to handle a car crash

Drivers across Maryland try to be careful and pay attention when they are out on the road, so when a car crash happens it can be very scary and sudden to them. This shock may prevent people from acting in their own best interests after a car accident, so it is smart to have a plan to follow in case of an emergency. Start by taking a moment to breath and check for any injuries.
