Trucks Collide with Car Outside of Reddick


When you operate a vehicle, you take certain safety precautions, and you expect others to do the same. Whether that includes using a blinker, looking both ways or simply wearing a seat belt, being a safe driver not only affects you, but helps prevent car and truck accidents and keep the roads safe for other drivers.

Drivers who choose to multitask while operating their motor vehicle put others at serious risk. Talking on a cell phone, texting or eating while driving are just a few things that can cause a driver to lose focus on the road, putting others in danger. Truck drivers have an even greater responsibility to focus on the road and drive safely. Because they operate such large vehicles, if they are involved in an accident, the damage could be catastrophic, and people could be seriously injured.

Last week, two trucks and a car collided on I-75 near Reddick. Two 19-year-olds, a man and a woman, were in the car, which was crushed by one of the semis. Firefighters had to cut both of them out of the vehicle. The two teenagers were injured in the accident. The woman was flown by helicopter to Shands at the University of Florida, and the man was taken to a nearby hospital in an ambulance.

All northbound lanes of the highway were closed for approximately an hour due to the crash. It is unclear what caused the accident.

Unfortunately, accidents like this one happen all too often. It is important for truck drivers and others to stay safe and focused while operating their vehicles. Trucking companies have a responsibility to make sure their drivers are not overworked. Distracted driving or driving on little sleep can make the roads dangerous and cause serious accidents that can result in injury or even death. If you or someone you know is injured in an accident due to negligent driving, contact Brentwood personal injury lawyers.

Driver Crashes into Snap Fitness Center

We rightfully expect drivers to pay full attention to where they are traveling. When they encounter something unexpected such as accidentally driving over a curb, they have an obligation to respond appropriately and make the necessary adjustments. Failure to do so can result in a serious car accident that needed to be handled by a Ft. Lauderdale injury law firm.

Around 1:00 in the afternoon one day last week, a man driving a late-model Hyundai Santa Fe apparently accidentally ran over a curb surrounding some greenery in a small Louisiana shopping center parking lot. He reportedly panicked and, rather than hitting his brakes, mistakenly slammed on the accelerator. The SUV sped forward and crashed through the glass entrance of a Snap Fitness center on Jefferson Highway.

How Do I Hire a Lawyer

How do I pay a lawyer if I hire one?

…A Judge at the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board must approve any fees paid to your attorney. The fees paid to lawyers in the workers’ compensation system are rather strictly regulated. The fee is typically 12% to 15% of the benefits awarded. Usually the insurance company will pay your attorney directly at the conclusion of your case. You should never have to pay your lawyer directly. If your case is lost and you have no recovery, then the lawyer does not get paid and you owe your attorney nothing. If your attorney has also represented you for vocational retraining, there will also be a fee in conjunction with this representation from a Milwaukee estate planning attorney.

According to a Melville car accident lawyer, the woman approached her ex at a bar on a recent evening and asked him to give up his parental rights to their child. Their conversation about the child custody did not go well.
