Car's failure to yield leads to fatal motorcycle crash

Motorcycles are such a common sight in Saint Peters and throughout Missouri that it is easy to come to the assumption that all drivers of conventional vehicles will pay attention to them, share the road and ensure that everyone is safe. With every motorcycle crash, however, the reality that such a belief is mistaken becomes clearer and clearer. Motorcyclists are prone to serious injuries and death when they are in an auto accident. For those who were hurt and families who lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash, a lawsuit is frequently the only way to receive adequate compensation.

Survey: Parents admit to texting and driving with kids in car

Missourians are fully aware of the dangers out on the road. One of the biggest issues is distracted driving. The scope of the problem has led to law enforcement and legislators trying to make the roads safer through enforcement and laws against the practice. Researchers are also trying to discern how and why drivers - who are undoubtedly knowledgeable as to the dangers of distracted driving - continue to do it.

Nursing home neglect might be due to lack of staffing

For Missouri families that place their elderly or ill loved one in a nursing home, there is an inevitable concern that the treatment will not be sufficient to provide them proper care. Often, that worry stems from the possibility that nursing home abuse or neglect will take place. One issue that is rarely considered is that the facility itself will not be adequately staffed. The failure to have enough people to care for the residents can cause major problems with their health and well-being.

Infotainment systems carry distracted driver risks

In Missouri and across the nation, distracted driving is a dangerous behavior that is the catalyst for a litany of auto accidents, injuries and loss of life. While drivers, law enforcement and legislators are cognizant of the issue and are taking steps to mitigate, reduce and stop it, it is unavoidable that drivers will be distracted. How they are distracted is also expanding from people using their smartphones to eating. This must be considered when there is an auto accident and the investigation is seeking to determine if distracted driving was a cause.
