How long does it take to become distracted while driving?

We frequently write about the hazards associated with distracted driving. We have discussed technology and educational campaigns designed to curb this behavior. We have also noted that numerous kinds of distraction are hazardous. It is understandable that most technology and educational campaigns are currently focused on reducing the prevalence of interacting with electronic communication devices while driving. However, it is important to understand that distraction in any form can lead to an injurious or fatal accident.

Your medical records may be surprisingly precious

We have previously discussed how important it is to be an informed patient. Certainly, it is important to seek out qualified medical professionals and, at least to some extent, trust in their expertise. However, medical professionals are human and are ultimately prone to make mistakes and missteps. As a result, it is important to be an informed patient so that you place yourself in the best possible position to advocate on behalf of your own health and wellbeing.

Does it matter if your vehicle crash was work related? - Part II

In our last blog post, we began a discussion about vehicle crashes that may or may not be considered “work related” under the law. We noted that if you were recently involved in a vehicle crash that had some link to your employment that you may want to consider speaking with an experienced attorney. A local attorney should be able to analyze the specific circumstances surrounding your case and be able to advise you on whether it can be considered work related. If it can be considered work related, you may then decide whether to file a workers’ compensation claim or a personal injury suit.

Does it matter if your vehicle crash was work related? - Part I

If you have recently been involved in a motor vehicle accident, it is important to determine whether the accident can be considered to be “work related” under the law. If your accident was work related, you may be able to collect workers’ compensation depending on the circumstances of the accident and the nature of harm that you suffered as a result of the accident. However, it may be more beneficial to pursue a personal injury suit whether or not your accident was work related.
