Going for a drive can be relaxing under the right circumstances, but unfortunately it can be dangerous under others. It can be an intimidating thing, driving around on the roads surrounded by vehicles much larger than your own. It shouldn't come as a surprise that these can cause a lot more damage if you are involved in an accident with them than the majority of other, more commonly purchased vehicles. While we know that large trucks require extra training to drive, that doesn't erase the fact that drivers are still human and mistakes can be easily made. Unfortunately, their mistakes can also easily be deadly.

When it comes to sharing the road with trucks, it can be scary if you aren't used to them. A truck can obviously cause more damage to your car than you can to them, so it makes sense that you drive more cautiously around them. Many people drive for years and still tend to get nervous when there are a lot of large trucks on the road with them. While a lot of it has to do with your experiences as a young driver, a good amount of the concern can be the result of simply seeing pictures of a collision between a truck and a car like the one you're currently driving. All the statistics you can research won't be able to counteract that anxiety.

Accidents are never a good thing, but they're even worse when the size and weight of the vehicles involved are heavily skewed towards one. While some people are lucky enough to walk away from these accidents with minor injuries, they often lead to severe harm or even death. The possibility of a crash is always there, but when highway speeds and large trucks are involved, it gets worse. It is never something that we want to hear has happened, but we know that it is unfortunately unavoidable, which is why we want to help you.

With the pace of life today, it can be difficult to put your phone down. It doesn't seem to matter what age you are anymore, there are people in every generation who act as if they are addicted to their phones. Whether you spend your time scrolling through social media or even talking to your family and friends, there is so much that you can do on that small screen. While it can be a nice change of pace to unplug every now and then and soak in the world around you, you don't always have the time. That is when the phone becomes a useful crutch.

The problem is that a large amount of people don't seem to be able to put theirs down at all. They continue to put their noses in their phones when they should be focused on something else that is in front of them. This can include anything from watching their children to driving or even sleeping. While in some cases it's rude or disrespectful, in others it is downright dangerous. It doesn't seem to matter how many times people are told that they shouldn't use their phones in certain situations, some just don't seem to care.

If you have ever stopped at a traffic light and looked around, chances are that you have seen someone fiddling on their phone while behind the wheel. It can be frustrating if you are stuck behind them and they are more focused on their phone than the road so you can't move until they do, but it can be downright terrifying if they are moving any paying attention to their phone. It only takes a second to get into a crash, and when someone else on the road is looking down at their phone for any reason, it can be more than enough time to cause an accident that can turn deadly.

If you were involved in an accident of any kind that was caused by someone on their phone, give Wayne Hardee a call. He has decades of experience representing people with cases like this, and will do everything he can to get you the compensation you deserve.

Even just going about your day, there are so many things that can go wrong. It's terrifying to think that just a few seconds can change someone's entire life, or sadly end it. Things like car accidents or severe falls are some of the things that we, as humans, can have seemingly random responses to. Our bodies may react in any number of ways, and we may not understand why. It's a terrifying concept when you think about it, but we deal with it every day that we get up and do our normal routine. Something that really gives you pause is that even if you aren't physically hurt in an accident, you can still end up paying for the incident if there is property damage done.

While the first thing we should think of in regards to an accident is the possibility of someone being hurt, there is often some amount of damage done to the location as well. As an example, if someone happens to fall against a window in a house, there is a possibility that they could go through the glass and fall. While your first reaction is going to be to check on them and make sure they didn't get to severely hurt, once they're clearly okay or helped to medical authorities, your attention will likely turn to the glass. That is property damage, and it needs to be settled however the property owner sees fit.

Another example of this is a car accident. Whether or not the vehicle(s) involved end up totaled, there is almost always something that needs to be fixed. Sometimes you're lucky enough to get away with only a couple of scratches, but sometimes it's a dent that needs to be fixed or maybe there's a leak in something now and you need some work done. If you weren't the one that caused the crash, you don't want to have to pay for the repairs yourself and you shouldn't have to. You want to get the money for the repairs from the person who was responsible. That is where we can help.

If you find yourself with property damage from an accident you didn't cause, Wayne Hardee can help. With decades of experience, Wayne can make sure that you get the compensation you deserve. You've earned a good legal team on your side while you recover, and Wayne is exactly that. Give us a call and see how much he can help your case!
