South Carolina's rapid growth has made it the deadliest state in the nation for traffic accidents. The death rate per 100 million miles traveled is nearly double the national average, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The #SouthCarolina Department of Public Safety reports 988 people were killed on state roads in 2017. As the Independent Mail reported, "High numbers of fatalities on Upstate roads are fast becoming the norm in a state known for high numbers of traffic fatalities." #Lawyer #Settlement

Turnover is a constant problem in the trucking industry. Long hours, low pay, and difficult working conditions mean that the industry is in a near-constant state of hiring. With so many new drivers on the road, #SouthCarolina road users consistently face the risk of being injured in an accident caused by an inexperienced truck driver. #Lawyer #TruckAccidents #Settlement

A recent fatal accident in #Tempe, #Arizona has raised serious and urgent safety concerns about self-driving vehicles. In addition to the pressing safety issues, federal legislators are also concerned about the legal rights of #injury victims who are hurt by self-driving vehicles.

The #technology is still so new that the law has not yet made clear provisions for #liability in such accidents. This is why it is so important for victims who have been injured by a self-driving vehicle to have the guidance of a personal injury #attorney who has experience in issues of product liability and technology. #SelfDrivingVehicles #CarAccidents #PedestrianAccidents

Awareness Has Not Stopped the Problem!
In order to address the problem of distracted driving, it is important to understand it. Major insurance carriers such as Esurance have conducted studies toward this end. Interestingly, Esurance found a disconnect between drivers’ beliefs about distracted driving and their willingness to engage in the dangerous behavior.

Occupational Health and Safety reports on the benefits of comprehensive, integrated management programs for worker safety. For example, gas and oil companies often rely on patchwork enforcement of safety protocols in the field, or collecting data from individual meters or safety components at different job sites. With centralized software management programs, these companies can better protect their workers. Safety equipment can be more effectively maintained and inspected as necessary. Centralized safety protocols can also help these companies ensure compliance with local, state and federal regulations. Having a central safety process is more efficient than attempting to implement safety protocols at many different work sites. This can save employers money over time.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that in 2015, more than 25 percent of all workplace fatalities in America occurred in the trucking industry. Among other causes, this is due to the conflict between federal regulations which limit the number of hours a commercial operator may drive, and pay structures which provide incentive to both drivers and companies to fit in as many hours of driving as possible.
