Drinking and driving can be a big holiday problem

The end of the year is almost here and at this time many Reno residents may be in between celebrations with family members and cherished friends. They may be wrapping up holiday get-togethers with co-workers and employers, traveling to see loved ones in distant places and preparing to ring in the New Year with the special people in their lives.

Truck drivers may not use cell phones while driving

Distracted driving is a serious problem for the Reno drivers who engage in the dangerous practice as well as those who must be on the roads at the same time as them. While certain forms of distractions are prohibited for drivers of personal vehicles, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has also issued restrictions on the use of cell phones by truck drivers. Those restrictions prohibit truckers from holding cell phones to make calls, dialing numbers with their hands or having to alter their sitting position in order to reach for cell phones.

What is whiplash and why is it a common car accident injury?

The injuries that Reno residents may sustain in a vehicle accident can range from minor contusions or bruising to life-threatening organ damage and bleeding. One factor that can make vehicle accident injuries quite troublesome is the fact that some do not manifest for hours or even days after the victim was involved in a collision. For example, the pain and stiffness of whiplash may not appear as symptoms of a victim's injury until after they have woken up the day after their car accident.

Should I accept settlement after a drunk driving accident?

Drunk drivers are more than a nuisance to Reno residents: they are a threat to the health and safety of people within the community who must take to local roads and highways in order to get where they need to go. Drunk drivers cause injuries, financial losses and fatalities. Their reckless actions can alter the course of their victims' lives as well as the lives of those who loved victims who succumbed to their accident-related injuries.

Who do I sue if I am injured in a truck accident?

Large trucks and cargo vehicles travel through Reno each day, carrying goods to the stores where residents shop and purchase their wants and needs. While most trucks get to their destinations without any accidents or issues, others are involved in collisions that put Nevada residents' lives at risk. When a person is hurt from an accident with a semi or other large commercial vehicle they may not know how to pursue the damages they need to get their life back on track.
