While the safest thing you can do is to stay home when the weather is bad, sometimes that is not possible.

Rental car insurance, accidents and things you should think about

Many people choose to rent a vehicle when they are going on a trip. This saves wear and tear on a primary vehicle since the mileage will be put on the rental car. Before you get on the road, you have to think about some important points about rental vehicles.

Slip-and-fall accidents at a business may cause serious injuries

If you were to believe the way they get depicted in movies, slip-and-fall accidents are nothing but a laugh.

In the real world, slip-and-fall accidents can have a profound impact on someone's health. They are no laughing matter. In some cases, they can lead to permanent disability. People can even die from a slip-and-fall accident.

Insurance may not cover all losses after a car crash
