Settling a case: Why you shouldn't take the first offer

Since a trial is a long process, you may wish to settle your personal injury claim outside court. The problem is that a settlement may not be as much money as you'd have received if you had gone through trial. Sometimes, offers are extremely low, and even though you want to put the past behind you, you shouldn't take what you're offered as if it's the only offer available.

How much rest does a truck driver need to take?

Driver fatigue is a dangerous problem, especially for truck drivers operating large and heavy semitrucks. Because catastrophic injuries and death can happen as a result of a semitruck crash -- and because sleepy drivers are the cause of many such accidents -- the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces strict guidelines to ensure that truckers get enough sleep.

Semitruck crash injury cases should begin quickly

Semitruck crashes can lead to life-altering injuries. When you are involved in one of these horrible crashes, you might want to know what options you have for recouping some of the money that you had to spend because of those life-altering injuries. The answer to this is that you might choose to seek compensation through a lawsuit.
