Proving negligence and fault in a drunk driving accident

There are many causes of automobile collisions; however, they are often related to the negligence or recklessness of a driver. When an intoxicated driver gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, he or she is not only putting their life at risk but also risking the lives of everyone on the roadway. When a drunk driver causes a collision, he or she could be held responsible by through negligence.

Helping accident victims navigate claims against drunk drivers

Unfortunately, every time a driver travels on the roadway, he or she puts himself or herself at risk. In order to reduce these dangers, drivers follow the rules of the road and uphold their duty to drive safely while behind the wheel of a vehicle. Although this increases the safety of the driver and those around them, this does not allow the driver to evade negligent drivers on the road. An intoxicated driver is a hazard on the roadway, and when an individual is harmed by a drunk driver, he or she could hold that individual responsible for the damages and losses they caused.

Preventing rollover truck accidents and improving safety

Large trucks are used to transport various items and shipments throughout Arizona and other states in the nation, including hazardous materials. While it is not uncommon for commercial drivers to transport hazardous materials, the act of transporting these materials adds several dangers to the roadways. Because of that, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, or FMCSA, has created safety regulations and initiatives to increase safety and prevent truck crashes.

Could technology improve trucking safety?

The trucking industry impacts drivers in Arizona and other states across the nation. These large vehicles often make lengthy trips across the nation. While trucks play an important role in intrastate and interstate commerce, the trucking industry also causes a disproportionate amount of dangers and risks on the roadway when compared to other vehicles. Because of that, it is important to take on safety initiatives to reduce truck accidents.
