Have you taken an extended break from driving? Maybe its coronavirus-related. Or, it could be due to a medical condition, age, or many other factors. Suffice it to say, a break has been taken, but now it is time to get back on the road. If you have not been behind the wheel of a car for some time, you may be a little nervous, over cautious and out of practice. Here are some reminders to help you get back on the road safely.
The popularity of having groceries delivered has grown tremendously. Instacart, Shipt, Peapod and many others make it easy to buy from Aldi’s, Hy-Vee, Price Chopper, Sprouts and more. The appeal: contactless delivery, social distancing, and avoiding long check-out lines and crowded stores. It is, however, a popular convenience that means more delivery drivers on our Kansas City roads.
Online shopping has become a way of life. Delivery of goods, which now includes groceries, fast food, prescriptions and more, saves us from risking possible COVID-19 exposure. The delivery truck experience is contactless, convenient and allows us to social distance.
Semitruck accidents (those involving a large commercial truck) are often more devastating than passenger car accidents. Why? Large commercial trucks weigh, on average, 80,000 pounds, whereas an average four-door passenger vehicle is around 3 to 4,000 pounds. When these two types of vehicles collide, the types of injuries suffered can be quite severe, sometimes fatal.
Did you know, approximately, 5,000 people in passenger vehicles die every year in car accidents involving semitrucks? An accident with a large commercial truck can be devastating. Unfortunately, many drivers do not understand how to safely maneuver around these big rigs and stay safe on the road.
Once a best-selling drug for more than 60 million Americans experiencing heart burn, Zantac (ranitidine) has now been pulled from the US market after several third-party tests found unsafe levels of a contaminant known as N-nitrosodimethyalmine (NDMA).
After a serious truck or car accident, you may focus on the physical injuries. You can see them; others can see them. It is obvious that you have been hurt in the accident. What is not so obvious; however, are any psychological or emotional trauma suffered. such as anxiety or depression. Mental health issues related to accidents are common yet may not arise for days or weeks or longer hiding beneath frustrations and stress.
Companies are supposed to design and manufacture safe products. No matter what the product is, it should be reasonably safe and, when needed, have appropriate warnings or instructions on how to use it. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
Business interruption insurance, also referred to as business income insurance, replaces lost income and amounts paid for bills and payroll in the event of a disaster that forces the business to close or reduce operations.
As consumers, we purchase products all the time – a new car, a child’s toy, a new power tool. Most of the time, they are safe and work the way they are supposed to; however, sometimes they do not. Sometimes a product can be defective, and sometimes that defective product can seriously injure the person using it.
