10 Labor Day Safety Practices

Labor Day is one of the most celebrated holidays in the United States. Many people find this as the last real weekend of summer, and others see it as a gateway to the holiday season. Whichever way you think of it, Labor Day is also the holiday that has the most accidents associated with it, both in and out of vehicles.

Effects of alcohol in the morning after

Most adults are well-aware of the adverse effects of alcohol. Most of the time, they are able to identify when they should not drive. Calling a driver or an Uber when you have had too much to drink at night after a party is a great way to avoid DUI charges.

What To Look For In A Personal Injury Attorney

Any time someone finds themselves in a situation where they need a lawyer, it can become confusing and a bit stressful. What do you need to look for? Who should you hire? Is this the best person for my case? These are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to questions that you may have when selecting an attorney, and that's why we're here to help. We're going to give you five helpful tips to keep in mind when you're selecting your attorney so you get the best fit possible.

Getting compensation for commercial truck accidents

Due to their large size, trucks can potentially wreak havoc on the road if an accident occurs. As the size of other automobiles is comparatively small, the consequences of a truck accident may be deadly for those involved. Special care should be practiced, whether you're the truck driver or a fellow motorist driving near the truck.

Distraction by gadgets while driving

Whether you're taking a call or fixing your hair while driving, activities that draw your attention away from the road come under distractions. Distracted driving can be dangerous and may cause accidents. Pedestrians, passengers and fellow motorist are all at risk when there is distracted driving. Some forms of distracted driving might result in a traffic violation. The traffic laws pertaining to certain distractions may differ from state to state. Texting while driving is a clear traffic violation in many states, including Kentucky. Gadgets, like smartphones, have their own perks. However if used while driving, they act as a distraction.

Dealing with a DUI charge

Driving under the influence of alcohol or any other intoxicant is considered a crime in all states. The offense is more formally known as a DUI. A DUI conviction may result in heavy fines, criminal record and even jail time. In some cases, driving privileges may also be taken away. Drunk driving is dangerous and can cause death or serious injuries to the parties involved. According to statistics, one person is fatally injured due to drunk driving every 48 mins in the US.
