According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Highway Loss Data Institute, approximately 10 percent of highway deaths occur in an accident involving a large truck.

Types of healthcare professionals that treat a brain injury

When a person suffers a brain injury, such as in a motor vehicle accident, there is nothing more important than seeking professional medical treatment. This is not the type of injury that will get better on its own. Instead, it is important for the appropriate medical professionals to treat the injury without delay.

Only the person behind the wheel can truly prevent distracted driving. You have the ability to take your eyes off the road for a number of reasons, from using a cellphone to conversing with passengers to eating food.

Authorities are taking steps to prevent distracted driving. For example, most states have laws in place that prohibit texting and driving. But even with this law, there is no guarantee that everybody will obey it.

I am very grateful Attorney Chester and his staff made my life easier. I'm not afraid to call them and get answers to all the questions that I've had, and no worries. Thank You.
