After a car crash, you might feel shaken and stressed out. Amidst all of the pain and distress, it is important for you to gather records for a future insurance claim or lawsuit in the future. The more proof you have, the stronger your case will be.

You might have a lot of questions regarding the claims or lawsuit process and how you will receive adequate compensation. This post addresses the crucial types of documentation you should collect after you get into an accident.

Changes in hours of service aim to reduce trucker fatigue

The people who drive trucks for a living work long hours and fight fatigue every day. The goal of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is to improve highway safety, and as part of that effort, the department has issued regulations regarding the number of hours truck drivers may operate.

In addition to working long hours, truckers must deal with an environment made up of close quarters and constant vehicle vibration. They often operate on insufficient sleep and live on a diet that is irregular at best. In their line of work, they deal with daily traffic frustrations as well as stretches of bad weather and dangerous road conditions. Fatigue is ever present, and so is the possibility of a highway accident.

If you have been in a car accident, you want to get your damage repaired and your medical bills covered as soon as possible. To get there, you will need to deal with insurance companies, whose goal is usually to pay out as little as possible. Coverage can get complicated, so it is no wonder that many people have misconceptions about how Texas insurance works when it comes to car accidents.

If you are going to be safe on the road, reducing your own sources of distraction is the name of the game. The first step toward that is to understand how driver distraction works.
