Many people travel to visit their loved ones during the holidays, whether they fly across the country or drive to another state. This can be a stressful time of year for many reasons and it can be especially difficult when a motor vehicle collision occurs. Moreover, motor vehicle crashes are particularly likely to happen during the holidays for a variety of reasons. As a result, you should be careful when you go on a holiday road trip to visit family members, and even when you drive around your home.
December is one of the worst driving months of the year. It has very little sunlight, frosty weather that make the roads slippery and holidays that send many travelers and drunk drivers to the streets together. However, it is not just the highways and county roads that increase in danger this month.
Many different vehicles are involved in traffic accidents, from large trucks to motorcycles and passenger vehicles. Some, however, are less common but still pose a threat to those riding in the vehicle and others on the road. For example, a scooter may be involved in a crash or a snowmobile, especially in colder parts of the country that see heavy snowfall during the winter months. With winter weather appearing around the U.S., it is important for people in colder locales to be mindful of these risks.

There are all sorts of considerations with regard to injuries sustained by workers while on the job. For example, an injured worker may struggle with medical costs, be unable to continue performing their job duties or have a lifelong injury following the accident. These are some of the challenges that workers face and these injuries can also be problematic for businesses as well. Moreover, they happen for many reasons, from dangerous working conditions to the negligent behavior of some workers. For example, some people may work while they are hungover after a night of heavy drinking, which can put their safety and the well-being of their co-workers at risk.
When entering a high-value divorce case, there is no reason to go into negotiations alone. Not only can unanticipated costs add up, but you might not be aware of all the money or property that is rightfully yours.
