Super Bowl Sunday Accidents

The Super Bowl represents one of America’s most beloved pastimes, and is a great opportunity to bring friends, family, and loved ones together to watch and celebrate. Unfortunately, celebration often leads to a risk of injury, especially in the form of driving under the influence. No matter how much caution is exerted, accidents do happen and a lapse in judgment can have fatal results.

A 2012 study found that 31% of Indiana drivers involved in fatal accidents that were operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Coupled with the fact that the risk of being in a drunk-driving crash on Super Bowl Sunday is nearly double that of a normal Sunday, the risk of being injured or killed does not justify taking a chance and driving while intoxicated.

Thanks to efforts by local law enforcement agencies, the number of accidents involving drunk-drivers has significantly lowered in recent years. In Indiana alone, the 2016 Super Bowl saw only 30 car accidents, with 13 injuries and, thankfully, zero deaths. With our community’s safety in mind, Doehrman Buba seeks to further reduce the risk of injury or death altogether during the Super Bowl this year.

Community and Well-Being

Uber is a reliable, well-known rideshare service that serves over 40 million riders each month.  With over 10,000 deaths per year due to drunk driving in Indiana alone, we encourage safety and good judgment when making Super Bowl Sunday plans this year. At Doehrman Buba, we believe that the cost of utilizing Uber on Super Bowl Sunday is a much cheaper and safer option than operating a vehicle while under the influence.

We strongly encourage taking advantage of our discounted Uber rides in order to guarantee sober driving and safety this Super Bowl Sunday. Discussing Uber with friends and family prior to drinking can help save livers—and ensure safety and security within our community for many Super Bowls to come. Simply fill out the form below to receive a discount code. The codes will be mailed to you prior to the game. The first 25 people to fill out the form below will each receive a coupon code for $10 off their Uber ride.

Insurance for Ridesharing Drivers

Insurance for Ridesharing Drivers

If you drive for a ridesharing app like Uber, Lyft, or Zipcar, and you don’t notify your insurance provider, the provider can cancel your insurance plan. The first step after becoming a commercial or ridesharing driver, is to call your insurance provider to find out if they cover commercial driving, or driving-for-hire. If they don’t, you may have to purchase a separate insurance plan for commercial driving.

Uber used to only insure drivers when a passenger was in the vehicle, but after a series of lawsuits, the ridesharing company has updated their insurance policy. Now, there are two different levels of insurance that both Uber and Lyft, as well as similar ridesharing services, provide for their drivers: these vary depending on whether or not the app is on and whether or not the driver has a passenger in the car or is on his or her way to pick up a passenger.

What is covered?

If the driver has the app turned off, then Uber and Lyft offer no insurance, and in an accident, the driver must rely on his or her own personal insurance. If the driver has the Uber or Lyft app turned on, but is not on his or her way to pick up a customer, Uber and Lyft offer only limited insurance coverage. This includes up to $50,000 for bodily injury with a $100,000 total limit per accident. If the driver has the app turned on and is on his or her way to pick up a passenger, has just accepted a request to pick up a passenger, or has a passenger in the car, then Uber and Lyft provide insurance coverage for both liability and collision. Uber provides collision insurance with a deductible of $1,000, and Lyft provides coverage with a $2,5000 deductible.

Insurance from Uber and Lyft only comes into play when a driver’s personal insurance fails or refuses to cover the full cost of damages, but this happens often, since the driver’s personal insurance carrier often fights charges in a commercial driving accident.

Some insurance companies have started offering insurance plans that cover commercial drivers who are between trips, without a passenger in the car and not on their way to pick one up. Several of these plans also offer increased coverage for accidents that occur when a driver has accepted a request or has a passenger in the car.

Commercial rideshare drivers who wish to receive greater insurance while driving for services like Uber, Lyft, and Zipcar may need to buy their own rideshare insurance plan. For rideshare drivers in Indiana, there are several different options and they are regularly changing so be sure to continue to follow their policies and updates.

Traumatic Brain Injuries in Children: 5 Things Every Parent Must Know

Traumatic Brain Injuries in Children

Parents love their children and want to give them the world. They want to give them all those things they never had while growing up. And most importantly, they want to keep them safe – both in school and at home.

No matter how hard you try to keep your children safe, they’re going to get hurt because you can’t be with them all the time. The point is, children get involved in accidents. It could be as fatal as a car crash or as minimal as falling off a skateboard, but knowing what to look out for in such circumstances is critical to your child health.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), also known as head injuries, are a very common outcome in children and teen related accidents, according to research by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),. They are the leading cause of permanent brain damage and death in children and teenagers.

A TBI occurs as a result of a collision between the head and a hard, strong surface. This collision causes the brain to jolt and slush around in the skull, usually resulting in anything from mild concussions to severe brain damage. Below are five things every parent must know about traumatic brain injuries in children.
