Cause of trucker fatigue can impact semitruck crash claims

All drivers on public roads count on those around them to drive safely. One particular concern is semitruck drivers. These large and heavy vehicles can cause significant damage to smaller personal vehicles. This can lead to severe injuries to the occupants.

The death of a loved one can be emotionally draining

A sudden death can throw you into a downward spiral if the person was close to you. Sometimes, people may cope with these events at first, but they might find that it gets more complicated as time progresses. You have to work through the feelings that come with a loss of this magnitude.

Texting and driving is always hazardous

Distracted driving kills people regularly. There isn't ever a good reason for a driver to try to operate a vehicle if they can't give their full attention to what is going on. One huge distraction for many is texting while they drive. It doesn't matter if they are reading the message or sending one; the danger is the same.

Tennessee bans cell phones while driving

For years now, Tennessee has had a distracted driving problem. Many motorists do not see the problem with texting or talking on the phone while operating a vehicle. It has led to numerous serious injuries over the years, but now, lawmakers have done something about it. As of July 1st of this year, drivers can no longer hold a cell phone while behind the wheel. 

Whiplash isn't a minor injury

The impact of a semitruck on a passenger vehicle can lead to some very serious injuries. People might poke fun at those who suffer from whiplash in an accident because it was once considered an almost-fake injury. Now, it is known that this is an actual medical condition that can lead to serious life impacts.
