When it comes to fantasy versus reality, there are few chasms quite as wide as that of being on a farm. Most people who have never been on a farm seem to think that it's generally playing with large animals all day and maybe just a little bit dirty. Those of us who have spent any extended time on a farm, however, know that this couldn't be further from the truth. It is a lot of heavy work that often leaves you sunburned, sweaty, and sore. Even with machines that make your job easier than it used to be, it can be exhausting work. In fact, these machines can be even more dangerous than spending all day doing it by yourself.

Spend any time around people who work on farms, and you'll probably hear at least one story about someone who was injured by a piece of machinery. It's not uncommon to hear of someone losing a finger or getting a nasty scar on their leg from a cut that caused some serious damage. These types of injuries seem almost like a right of passage if you work in agriculture for any extended amount of time. Although we have better safety measures than ever before, these types of accidents do unfortunately still happen.

When you are working with anything that will help to plant or harvest crops or deal with animals that are much larger than yourself, it isn't surprising that these machines can hurt you. Anything with a blade that can operate mechanically is always going to be a risk. While there are now often kill switches and emergency censors, these will only do so much and can't help if they aren't active or even on the equipment.

In today's society, it can be difficult to put your phone down. It doesn't seem to matter what age you are, there are people in every generation who have become seemingly addicted to their phones. Whether you're scrolling through social media or playing a game or even just messaging a friend, there's just so much that you can do on that little pocket computer. While it can be nice to unplug every now and then and catch up on your projects or sit outside with a nice drink, in those short bursts of downtime where you don't have the ability to fully relax, the phone is a great alternative.

The problem is that many people don't seem to be able to actually put their phones down. They continue to use their phones even when they should be completely focused on the task they are actively trying to perform. This can include everything from watching their child's newest self-choreographed dance to driving or walking near the street. In some cases it's simply rude or disrespectful, but in others it is downright dangerous. It doesn't seem to matter how many times someone is told that they shouldn't use their phones at certain times, some just don't want to listen.

If you have ever sat at a stoplight and looked around, chances are that you have seen someone texting while behind the wheel. It can be frustrating if you are stuck behind them and need to wait for them to pay attention to the light before you can move, but it can be terrifying if they are still moving while looking at their phone. It only takes a second worth of distraction to get into a crash, and when someone else on the road is looking down at their phone to answer a text, it can be more than enough time to cause an accident.

If you were involved in an accident of any kind that was caused by someone more interested in texting than paying attention, give Wayne Hardee a call. He has decades of experience representing people with cases like yours and will do everything he can to get you the compensation you deserve. It can be frustrating and scary to go through something like this, but with Wayne Hardee you don't have to do it alone. Give him a call and see how much better you feel having him on your side!

Mechanical Failure - Greenville Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney

One of the scariest things that you can experience while driving is suddenly not having the control over your car that you should. If you've ever been in a vehicle where the brakes suddenly failed or where you couldn't shift out of gear, then you know exactly what I'm talking about. It is a terrifying feeling and it can be tragic if you are unable to regain control. The worst part about it is that there's generally nothing you can do to stop it once it happens, and it often isn't something you can prevent either. Sometimes things just go wrong. That doesn't make it any better or easier to deal with when it happens to you, and it certainly doesn't help when it causes severe injuries or death. Mechanical failure is, without a doubt, one of the worst things that can happen to you when you are driving.

It can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to building a case that involves something mechanically going wrong with your vehicle. It's often overwhelming, and when you're already trying to recover from injuries sustained, it's probably the last thing you want to have to deal with. Calling around trying to get all of the appropriate papers together from the car dealership, the company who made the car, and/or your mechanic can seem impossible under the best of circumstances. Forget trying to do this when you're stuck in the hospital due to injuries. Even if you weren't severely injured, there is obviously something wrong with your car. That can be just as expensive to fix as some medical issues depending on what's wrong. Often times, people feel more comfortable replacing the entire car if the issue was serious enough, and sometimes it is more financially feasible to do just that. So who can you turn to for help when you were in an accident caused by something mechanical?

Wayne Hardee has decades of experience handling cases about all different kinds of car accidents, including those caused by mechanical failures. While it may not seem like you are entitled to anything, there may be a problem with the car that places the responsibility on someone who handled the car or a faulty piece.
