Are commercial truck drivers getting enough sleep?

It has been reported before, but it deserves reiterating: driving while fatigued is a dangerous thing. It can take a toll on a person’s ability to concentrate, and it can make driving on the road with them dangerous, as drowsy drivers can also be the cause of accidents due to a lowered reaction time or falling asleep at the wheel.

Controversial campaign aimed at men for higher DUI rates

Crackdowns against drunk driving have been happening all across the nation, and Tennessee is no exception. When it comes to the toleration of drinking and driving, many governments are stepping their game up with stricter laws, harsher punishments, and more campaigns to raise awareness.

Motorcycle accidents that can lead to wrongful death charges

Motorcyclists face a lot of danger when they are on the road due to how exposed they are. While they may not be as at-risk as pedestrians or people on bicycles, the changes of running into severe or even lethal damage is still high. If your loved one has been killed in an accident while on their motorcycle, it is possible that you may be able to file a wrongful death suit for financial compensation.

Implied consent law and the consequences of refusing to comply

Many people are not aware of the implied consent law that applies to all drivers. This can be a problem for drivers who are asked to do a breath analysis test after being pulled over, because they may refuse and end up with more charges than they would have otherwise been dealing with.

Nasty truck crash ends well for everyone

Any driver who has been involved in, or witnessed, a truck accident on the highway knows that these accidents can be particularly grisly. This is largely because a commercial truck generally dwarfs all other cars that it shares the roads with, resulting in maximum damage and injury to the drivers in the other vehicle.

Dealing with insurance companies post-accident

Accidents are a stressful situation for you, and they can be made even more stressful because it may seem like even your own insurance company is not on your side. Not to mention the fact that you may have to face a difficult battle to get the proper compensation out of the other driver’s insurance. So what can you do?

Tennessee stands out among DUI crackdown states

States are cracking down left and right on drunk drivers. This is due to the serious consequences of drunk driving accidents, such as the potential loss of life that can come with a fatal crash. Some states are going to incredible lengths to make sure that drunk drivers face severe penalties even for a first-time DUI.
