Could emergency response lead to more truck accidents?

In West Virginia and across the country, daily life is drastically different than it was just a few short weeks ago. Most places have new regulations that require residents to spend a lot of time at home, and only go out to purchase essential goods or to seek medical attention. While a large number of businesses are closed or employees are working from home, the truck drivers responsible for restocking shelves and delivering crucial supplies are busier than ever, and some recent changes may lead to a higher likelihood of truck accidents

Underage drunk drivers a serious threat

West Virginia drivers are educated about the dangers of drinking and driving from an early age. Getting behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is both risky and illegal. Still, drunk drivers continue to cause injury and death, and a recent case is especially tragic. 

What should you know about trucker fatigue?

With very few exceptions, such as the targeted relaxation of these laws by President Trump this year, the Hours of Service regulations provide limits to how long truckers can drive. Those who are hauling goods are normally limited to no more than 11 hours behind the wheel before they have to take a rest break of at least 10 consecutive hours.

Traumatic brain injury victims often misunderstood

In the past few years, important research has led to a better understanding of certain injuries that affect thousands of people nationwide. West Virginia residents who have suffered a traumatic brain injury may be among those that feel like they are often misunderstood by the people around them. A victim's loved ones may do their best to help, but the effects of such an injury can be hard to explain, and even modern medicine is still trying to grasp the scope of long-term symptoms. 

Distracted driving and car accidents

These days, people may find themselves becoming easily distracted. West Virginia residents may be contending with the closure of schools and businesses, or they may have trouble locating certain items in the grocery store. It's good to stay on top of the latest news and changes, but it is equally important to focus on the road when behind the wheel. Distracted driving causes car accidents, and a recent crash may be a case in point.
