Slow-moving vehicles on the Alabama roadways

There are a wide variety of vehicles present on the Alabama streets and highways at any given time. From motorcycles to tractor trailers, these are all subject to traffic laws. However, motorists should be aware of the exceptions that apply to farm equipment such as tractors and combines, and the responsibilities that drivers have regarding these vehicles.

The backover problem

Drivers in Alabama should check the area around them carefully before putting a motor vehicle in reverse and backing out of a parking space. A person who has new technology such as rearview cameras and sensors on the vehicle may feel more confident about the process. However, according to a study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, even these may not be enough to prevent a backover crash.

Is your motorcycle safe?

When you ride your motorcycle, safety often includes factors that are out of your hands thanks to Alabama road hazards, bad weather and the carelessness of other drivers. Although defensive riding techniques are helpful, manufacturers are constantly working to develop new ways to compensate for the relative lack of features that are available on most bikes. Nationwide.com notes that greater visibility, control and improved protective gear may help reduce your risk of a motorcycle accident.

Nursing home staffing conditions and elder abuse

The people who are providing care to your loved one in an Alabama nursing home should be ensuring his or her well-being. News reports across the nation indicate that quality care is not provided in many facilities. There are studies that attempt to pinpoint why abuse occurs, though, and these may offer you some warning signs to identify bad conditions before a resident is injured. At the Sapp Law Firm, L.L.C., we understand that nursing homes should be held accountable for conditions that lead to abuse.

Permanent total disability after an Alabama work accident

Regardless of the industry and occupation where you are employed in Alabama, you are exposed to some level of risk. An office worker may not be as likely to be exposed to the hazards that construction or farm workers may face. However, in the event of a work-related injury, returning to your regular job duties afterward may be difficult or impossible. At the Sapp Law Firm, L.L.C., we have often provided legal assistance to people who develop permanent health problems after an on-the-job accident.
