Truckers subjected to strict drunk driving regulations

It goes without saying that truckers have to follow the same traffic laws and regulations as other motorists. In fact, they are subjected to even more strict rules governing their driving behaviors. For example, as a previous post has mentioned before, truckers are required to rest for a certain number of hours between each shift and can only drive for a set number of hours per day. Truckers must also ensure that their cargo is properly secured. But the restrictions do not end there.

Wrongful death lawsuits and expert witnesses

Losing a loved one in a car accident is nothing short of tragic. This is especially true when the death could have been prevented if the driver who caused the wreck was driving safely. The aftermath of such a fatal accident can be tremendous, oftentimes including significant emotional and financial loss. Although legal action cannot bring a loved one back, it may help a surviving family find peace, closure and financial relief.

What do I need to give an attorney after a wreck?

Being in a car accident can be extremely stressful. You might be concerned about the damage done to your vehicle, any injuries you may have suffered, and how the matter will be resolved. Oftentimes, taking legal action is in the best interest of the car accident victim. A successful lawsuit may bring compensation to help cover damage caused to your car and may also help cover medical expenses you may have incurred. A lawsuit may also assist you in recouping your lost wages if you are forced to miss work.

Fatal car accidents on the rise in 2015

Recently released data shows that the number of car accident fatalities decreased in 2014. The 0.1 percent decrease is significant, especially when taken into consideration with the fact that the fatality rate was at a record low of 1.07 fatalities per every 100 million miles traveled. Though this may sound like promising news, statistics for the first six months of 2015 tell a different story. In that time period, accident deaths increased by more than eight percent over the same time period last year. So, why are fatal accidents increasing?
