What is the best way to avoid negligent car accidents?

It would be inaccurate to say that there is a single, foolproof way to avoid car accidents whether they are negligent or not. Even when you always practice safe driving and comply with all the rules of the road, another motorist could crash into your vehicle. Another way to look at the situation is to acknowledge that you can never have control over another person's driving behaviors.

Delivery drivers are at a high risk for on-the-job injury

In a 2014 Time Magazine report, occupations involving delivery came in at number eight on the list of the nation's most dangerous jobs. Des Moines is a large and busy city in which thousands of delivery drivers work. It makes sense to assume that many of these workers have suffered a work-related injury in some capacity.

Benefits a lawyer brings to commercial vehicle accident cases

A commercial vehicle accident is devastating in many ways. The loss of valuable personal property is a concern, of course, but the physical injuries a victim may suffer are even more catastrophic. Commercial vehicles typically weigh much more than ordinary cars and trucks. This weight difference means the occupants of the smaller vehicle will likely suffer more severe injuries than they would in other types of vehicle accidents.

Those who help are at risk of occupational injury every day

Emergency medical service (EMS) workers provide the public with life-saving assistance on a daily basis. They respond to emergencies as they arise, often without a thought to their own health and well-being. It is safe to assume that many Iowa residents helped by EMS personnel would have perished without emergency assistance.

What to do with a lowball insurance offer after a crash

Getting into a car crash can be a truly terrifying experience. One moment, you're on your way to the store or work and the next, you're inspecting yourself and your passengers for serious injuries. Instead of finishing your drive, you'll be worrying about repairing or replacing your vehicle, filing a police report and insurance claim, and seeking necessary medical attention.

Police urge drivers to slow down after snowy 11-car pileup

Inclement winter weather occurs frequently in the state of Iowa. Snow is often a factor and it can have a negative effect on road safety, especially if motorists fail to exercise due caution. Snowy conditions like the recent storm that occurred over the winter holidays wreak havoc on the state's roadways. Police officials have a word of advice for you all: Slow down during stormy conditions.
