If you get into an accident, try to remember some of these tips

For those who have already been in a car accident, you know just how chaotic
and bizarre the moment that follow the wreck can be. For those who haven\’t
been in an accident, heed some of the lessons in this blog post so that
you will be better prepared in case you are involved in a wreck. Though
if the knowledge never gets used because you don\’t get into a car
accident, then that\’s even better!

When you get into a car accident, one of the simplest steps you can take
is to do nothing. Yes, that\’s right — do nothing. What we mean by
that is don\’t leave the scene of the wreck. Don\’t drive off; don\’t
flee; don\’t think you\’ll get away from the law. No matter what
happens, you are better served by staying at the scene.

Now that you have remained at the scene, you can take a few more proactive
steps. For example, you should check on any other drivers, pedestrians,
or people involved in the wreck. Call the police to get some help to the
scene, regardless of whether people are injured or not. Take pictures
of the accident scene, and get any statements or information from witnesses
to help you down the line if legal action is taken by any party.

Ultimately, you will want to get the information of the other people involved
in the accident, and then you will need to contact your car insurance
provider to file a claim over the accident.

Truck accident leaves four dead, four injured

Most truck drivers are good people who are concerned with highway safety. But as in all other lines of work, there are some who break the rules and make their peers look bad. One of the most commonsafety regulations broken in trucking is the rule restricting the hours a truck driver can drive and work in a 24-hour period: they can, at most, drive 11 hours during a maximum 14-hour

Inside truck accident numbers

If truck accidents involving 18-wheelers and cars were boxing matches, the referee would stop the proceedings before the opening bell. It just wouldn\’t be a fair fight. The average passenger car weighs about 3,200 pounds, while big rigs can tip the scales at 80,000 pounds. When a 40-ton truck hits a car weighing two tons or less, the outcome is predictable. As we have seen in the Joplin area, those
