Lombard, IL truck accident attorney

Semi-truck accidents can be extremely dangerous and cause severe injuries because of the size and weight of trucks compared to other vehicles on the road. If you have been injured in a truck accident through no fault of your own, you may already know that you can seek compensation from the truck driver who caused the crash. However, it is not always obvious when the trucking company that employs the driver shares in the liability. If the company has committed any violations to regulations from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), you may be able to pursue damages for a resulting accident.

Regulations for Truck Drivers

Truck drivers have different schedules and work environments compared to other types of employees, such as office workers, who typically work eight hours during the weekdays in a building. That is why truckers must follow certain rules and regulations to ensure safety on the roads. The following are a few examples of these federal restrictions for truck drivers:

Naperville divorce lawyerWhether you have just begun the process of initiating divorce proceedings or are in the early stages of contemplating ending your marriage, imagining what your life will look and feel like when you are on your own again can be emotionally crippling. It is not uncommon for couples to remain in relationship limbo for that exact reason — the idea of living alone can be overwhelming, to say the least. Thankfully, the decision to move forward and take the next step into your newly single life can also be a prime opportunity to nurture yourself in ways you may have never done before. An experienced divorce attorney can assist you with the legal steps of ending your marriage so you can focus on reinventing yourself. 

How and Where to Begin

Psychology experts remind us that people often lose themselves in relationships, so it is not surprising how challenging the task of figuring out how to live alone can be following a divorce. As you take a leap into what feels like the great unknown, practice the following tips to help yourself prepare and adjust to your new life:

  1. Make your living space your sanctuary: Once you are no longer living with your married partner, your home environment is more important than ever before. Whether you have plans to remain in the home you both shared or you intend to start fresh and move to a brand-new apartment in another city, ensure that your space makes you feel comfortable, safe, and peaceful. Make your home your sanctuary, a refuge from the outside world. Redecorate as much as it is financially feasible, especially if you are staying in the same home. If you are relocating, unpack your boxes and make the place feel lived in, so you feel as if you are establishing roots. This will also allow you to relax and feel a new sense of belonging.

Bloomingdale personal injury attorney auto accident

In many car accidents, the events leading up to the collision are not always agreed upon by all of the parties involved in the crash. Maybe a vehicle ran through a stop sign and into an intersection without stopping. Perhaps a driver became distracted by his or her cellphone while driving on the road and rear-ended the vehicle in front of him or her. Those situations may seem fairly simple, but the details of all cases can be disputed. If you are involved in a car accident and suffer injuries, the last thing you will want to do is dispute with your insurance company over the events of the collision. Having sufficient evidence of your own ensures your side of the story is told accurately and the extent of your injuries and damages are documented properly, which helps in seeking compensation.

Why It Is Important to Take Photos and Videos at the Scene

Car accidents can be extremely stressful events to go through, not only emotionally, but also in a physical sense. Even if you are not physically injured, your body’s natural response to stress, also known as the fight or flight response, can be triggered. The fight or flight response is aptly named due to the flood of hormones from the sympathetic nervous system that either prompt and prepare us to stay and fight the danger before us or to turn around and flee from it. This stress response is also typically responsible for classic symptoms such as:

DuPage County divorce attorney parental alienation

Even under the very best of circumstances, the divorce experience can take a significant psychological toll on everyone involved. The emotional effects of the end of a marriage can become even more complicated when the divorcing couple shares children, as children can be especially sensitive to the overwhelming changes to their household and lifestyle.

Sadly, in cases of a contentious divorce, the conditions can sometimes turn toxic as parents succumb to parental alienation syndrome. This occurs when one parent turns the children against the other parent. This syndrome morphs into a pattern of habitual parent-child relationship sabotage, often resulting in short and long-term psychological damage to the kids.

DuPage County personal injury attorney truck accident

In the United States, the trucking industry plays a very crucial role in the supply chain by distributing goods to consumers throughout the country. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), there were more than 12.2 million large trucks registered in the United States in 2017, with an estimated 6.6 million drivers employed and operating in both intra- and interstate commerce driving. Trucking has revolutionized the supply chain for American retailers, but trucks have also proven to pose a danger on the roads for many reasons. Of all of the causes of truck accidents, preventing a trucking accident due to equipment malfunctions from lack of upkeep or inspection is one of the simplest.

Common Defective Parts

Because of the sheer size and mass of large trucks, the FMCSA, the policy-enforcing entity for commercial motor vehicles (CMVs), requires regular inspections of the equipment and parts that are on the truck. This helps to ensure that the truck is in proper working condition and is safe to drive. Trucking companies are also required to keep thorough and accurate maintenance records for all of their trucks, including the date of the last inspection. When a truck has faulty parts or equipment, it could pose a danger to both the truck driver and other motorists on the road. Common truck part malfunctions include:
