Alabama logging truck accidents a dangerous reality

It is very easy to find news about motor vehicle accidents involving logging trucks on Alabama roads with a simple Internet search. For example, a pickup truck and logging truck collided one March 2016 afternoon on U.S. 72 in Scottsboro, killing a passenger of the smaller vehicle and injuring both drivers, according to al.com. The driver of a delivery van died in a crash with an 18-wheeler hauling logs at a highway intersection in Tanner, south of Athens, in August 2015.

Why Motorcyclists Need to be Aware of the Drivers Around Them

Memorial Day and the weekend preceding is a popular time for people to get on their motorcycles and enjoy the freedom to ride. It's also a time where the roads become more congested due to more people enjoying the festivities, and are much less likely to pay attention to what they're doing when driving. Motorcyclists need to exercise extra caution at this time of year or risk life and limb. The Alabama Department of Transportation counted 1,251 injuries and 64 fatalities among motorcyclists in the year 2014 alone. It's estimated that 98 percent of all motorists are going to experience a crash of some severity in their lifetime.

What is a Social Security Disability reconsideration?

When some people learn that their Social Security Disability Insurance claim has been denied, they go back to square one and fill out a new application, hoping to avoid whatever the problem was with their initial claim. However, you generally have a better chance of getting your claim being approved if you file an appeal instead. The first appeal is called a "reconsideration."

Health hazards women face in the workplace

During the 20th century, women became a valuable force in the American workplace. Like their male peers, they fill many important roles, providing services and duties that greatly bolster our economy. While it is important to acknowledge the contributions women make to the workforce, it is equally important to understand the health hazards and injury risks to which they are exposed.

How can you get your Social Security Disability claim approved?

While the number of Social Security Disability Insurance applications has more than doubled since 1999, the rate being approved has dropped from over 50 percent to about 33 percent. That's why it's more important than ever to know the rules and take care when submitting an SSDI application.
