Careful; the big rig in the next lane may be overloaded

Overloaded cargo is one of the major causes of truck accidents. In a truck as massive as an 18-wheeler, a load that is not distributed properly can easily shift, causing a rollover or perhaps a collision with a motorist like you who has the misfortune of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Can time of day be a factor in a truck-car collision?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration does a great deal of research into highway accidents caused by truck drivers. Their findings show that fatigue is a significant problem for truckers and one of the major factors in crashes.

Accidents happen more frequently at certain hours, but it is not just because of morning rush-hour traffic or poor visibility on a dark and stormy night. If a tractor-trailer suddenly swerves into your lane and sideswipes you on a clear, sunny afternoon, time of day may still be a contributing factor in the collision.

Reduce your chances of injuries caused by medical malpractice

When you need medical care, you go to doctors for diagnosis and treatment to feel better. You may not think about the mistakes they make that can lead to harm. When doctors and health care staff fail in their duties, their patients suffer.  There is even the possibility of death. 

You should not let your concerns about medical malpractice keep you from taking care of your health. Very few doctors are negligent with their duties and no doctor makes mistakes on purpose. But when mistakes do happen, the negligent health care professional is not relieved of liability for damages done to the patient. Here are some things you can do to make their jobs easier and further reduce the chances of you becoming a medical malpractice victim.
