What to expect in a truck accident settlement

In their effort to receive compensation for injuries, truck accident victims can choose to pursue a lawsuit in civil court or to settle the case out of court. These two options are given under civil law in North Carolina, and they come with their advantages and disadvantages. There is no question, though, that settling out of court can save victims both time and money.

New technology aims to reduce risks of truck driver fatigue

Truck accidents can cause devastating personal injuries and even fatalities on the roadways of North Carolina and across the country. There are over 7 million people employed in the trucking industry, and they transport over 70 percent of the country's cargo. While truck drivers can earn a good living, the arduous, tiring schedule can be difficult to handle. Turnover is regularly higher than 90 percent.

Radiologists face the risk of back problems from work

North Carolina residents might think about accident-related injuries when they consider workers' compensation claims. However, these aren't the only hazards that workers face. Some professionals, including those in the medical field, are at risk of experiencing cumulative trauma injuries.

Distracted driving leads to many car accident injuries

Many drivers in North Carolina are all too aware of the dangers of distracted driving. The consequences of this negligent driving behavior can be serious and deadly. In 2015 alone, 3,477 people were killed due to distracted driving, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Workers face threats from machine pinch points

Workers in North Carolina can be harmed when machinery in the workplace is unprotected and unguarded. A part of a machine that could capture a person or a part of his or her body, causing injury, is called a pinch point. A pinch point could trap a person between moving parts, between materials and the machine or between moving and stationary parts. Any machine can have a number of pinch points that could cause serious injuries to workers. These include robots, conveyor belts, printing presses, metal forming machines, construction equipment, rollers, assembly lines, plastic molding machinery, power doors and transmissions and other types of equipment.
