The Dangers Of Getting Distracted While Driving

The Dangers Of Getting Distracted While DrivingTime and time again, people have been told not to do various things that take their attention away from the road. Yet, many drivers still partake in activities that do just that. The actions have been taking place for years, so it is not like this is a new dilemma. For instance, in the past, it was not uncommon to see drivers reading newspapers while stuck in traffic. Of course, there was the problem of eating and operating a vehicle too, which is still an issue today.

With so many drive-thru restaurants along routes, it is easy for folks to swing in and snag a quick bite to eat. After all, time is money, and there never seems to be enough of either in the modern world. Still, this act should be avoided whenever possible as it can be very dangerous. It is tough to keep the car under control with a drink in one hand, a burger in the other, and a knee controlling the steering wheel. In other words, distracted driving takes place in many forms. Curious individuals should read further to learn more.

Could A Truck Accident Be In Your Future?

Could A Truck Accident Be In Your Future?Logistics is a thriving industry that is alive and kicking today. Many citizens decide to go into the business as it provides them with job security, lucrative pay, and a chance to see the country. Speaking of the money, the Bureau of Labor Statistics says that the median annual wage for truck drivers was $42,480 in May of 2017.

A Nightmare Scenario Can Arise From Not Being Able To Stop Your Vehicle

A Nightmare Scenario Can Arise From Not Being Able To Stop Your VehicleThere are certain things that people expect to happen when they get behind the wheel of a car. For instance, when a person pushes on the gas pedal, the engine should rev up, and the vehicle should scoot on down the road if the transmission is in the drive position. Meanwhile, if the operator gently steps on the brake pedal, the car needs to slow down correctly. Of course, if traffic stops in front of them abruptly, the auto must stop on a dime by mashing the pedal.

Should the automobile fail to slow down or stop appropriately, the driver may rear-end another car, bypass a stop sign or red light and go into a busy intersection, or possibly even hit a pedestrian. Nobody wants to be involved in any of these scenarios or another one that leads to a crash. However, sometimes things happen, and wrecks do occur. In fact, research from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Highway Loss Data Institute, states that there were 34,247 fatal crashes in the United States in 2017 alone.... ...read full post

Traumatic Brain Injuries: The Silent Accident Injury

Traumatic Brain Injuries: The Silent Accident InjuryTraumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) are one of the most serious and deadly injuries sustained after an accident. However, because of the nature TBI, many people don’t realize they have developed an issue until it is too late. In personal injury law, that makes TBI claims extremely complicated. It is critical that anytime you injure your head after an accident you seek medical attention immediately.

Why TBI Symptoms May Not Appear Right Away

The brain is our most complex organ and even with the advances in medical science, we still don’t know everything about how it works. The brain controls everything in the body, so the symptoms and effects can impact areas all over the body. The damage can impact movement and mobility, the senses, as well as the ability to rationalize and memorize. When a TBI happens, the symptoms aren’t always apparent. That is because the damage may be progressive and take years to really impact the life of the victim. Even with a thorough diagnosis of TBI, because the brain is so complex, it is hard to see the full extent of the... ...read full post

Can RMS Get Workers Comp?

Can RMS Get Workers Comp?We’re lucky enough as Americans to live in one of the most advanced nations in the world, and as a result, when things happen that are unfair, or unjust, the law is there to provide some measure of protection. This is even the case when it comes to things that aren’t criminal, like injuries sustained at the workplace.

Workers compensation, or workers comp, as it is more commonly known, is a legal and financial contingency set in place to protect workers who have become injured while on the job. In most cases, this type of workplace-related injury is pretty straightforward, and there’s not much debate about what happened. For example, if someone working with an arc welder warns the management that a welder is defective but is ordered to use it anyway, and the welder explodes, causing an accident and injury, this is not the fault of the worker. If the worker needs hospital treatment, and maybe even suffers a permanent injury as a result of this incident, he or she should not—and will not—be expected to bear the brunt of the financial burden for hospital treatment and recovery.
