#Arkansas ranks among the most dangerous states in the nation. Wallet Hub reports the nation's safest states are Vermont, Maine, Minnesota, Utah and New Hampshire. Florida, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Mississippi were ranked most dangerous, followed by Arkansas at 45th in terms of safety.

To rank all 50 states, researchers used 48 safety metrics, including personal and residential safety, road safety, workplace safety and financial safety. Alabama was hit hardest in the personal and residential safety category, where it ranked 49th. We barely made the top half for traffic safety, where we finished 23rd. #Lawyer #Settlement #JonesboroAK

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association is reporting increased enforcement for commercial drivers behind the wheel of tractor-trailers and commercial tour buses as the summer travel season gets underway.

Personal injury lawyers in #Jonesboro and throughout #Arkansas will see a growing number of traffic accident cases through the summer months. Tractor-trailers will be moving more freight through the autumn harvest season, and a record number of people are expected to board tour buses nationwide. #Lawyer #Settlement #FMCSA

In new vehicles filled with #technology, it has become harder and harder for drivers to stay focused on the road. Advocates, safety coalitions, #government traffic agencies, and many others have worked hard to bring awareness to this important issue. Their efforts paid off last year when the state legislature passed new, tougher laws to ban #smartphone use while driving in #Arkansas.

It is important for #Jonesboro drivers to understand the new restrictions on phone use while driving. Following these rules will prevent both injuries and the unpleasant consequences of being found liable for causing an accident.

Any car crash can cause significant property damage, but crashing into a building increases the costs substantially. Worse, both the number of people injured and severity of injuries can be exacerbated by a car accident that involves a building. Recent car crashes into Jonesboro buildings have caused significant harm to our neighbors and property.

Truck driver shortages do not just affect the transportation industry. Shortages can lead to inexperienced or untrained drivers taking large, heavy vehicles onto the road alongside smaller passenger vehicles. In a collision between the two, physics favors the larger, heavier vehicle. This is why injury victims often suffer more severe injuries, or even death, in a collision with a large truck.

Transportation companies have a duty to provide their drivers with reasonable training and experience prior to putting them on the road. Failure to do so can result in a finding of negligence for failure to exercise due care. Tight deadlines, production demands, or other pressures will not excuse a company’s obligation to compensate the victims of its negligence.

Both anecdotal and statistical evidence suggest that the American trucking industry is experiencing a driver shortage. This shortage is more than a mere inconvenience that results in missed deadlines or higher distribution costs. It can also lead to dangerously inexperienced drivers being placed behind the wheels of large, fully loaded cargo trucks.

These drivers are more likely to injure or kill other road users in traffic accidents. A Jonesboro truck accident attorney can help injury victims hold transportation companies accountable for putting dangerously unqualified truck drivers on the road.

Backover accidents are a significant cause of serious injuries that stem from a variety of instances.
Often, bicyclists and pedestrians are involved, and serious or fatal injuries result. In many cases, these incidents occur in parking lots. Tragically, they sometimes involve small children who may be playing around a vehicle.

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, over 78 percent of #RolloverAccidents involve driver error, which often leads to a finding of #negligence. When a #driver has been found negligent - either by his or her insurance carrier, or by a jury at trial - that driver has a legal obligation to compensate #injury victims for the financial losses they sustained in the accident.

In Jonesboro, road debris poses the risk of injury to all roadway users. Drivers, passengers, motorcycle riders, bicyclists and pedestrians alike can all be injured in an accident caused by trash or improperly secured cargo that has been dropped or fallen into the road, resulting in obstruction.
