Truck Accidents #infographic

Trucks are one of the common types of vehicles driving on our roads. But with their considerable size and weight, they are involved in many catastrophic accidents causing up to 4.000 deaths annually in the United States. Since trucks can weight around 20-30 times more than an average car and take more time to stop, 70% of the times it’s the other (smaller) vehicle’s passengers who get fatally injured.

Most truck crashes occur due to human error, some prevailing causes being aggressive driving, fatigued or distracted driving or even driver impairment or inexperience. In case of an accident, trucking companies and their insurance companies have large resources at their disposal, so battling them in court for an appropriate compensation can become a difficult task. For being able to stand up against them, you should contact an experienced Injury Law attorney like Terry Bryant. This way, one case at a time we can all make the roads safer for all its users.

Food Poisoning: A Common Problem In The U.S #infographic

Food poisoning is a common problem in the U.S. Every year 50 million Americans (1 in 6) fall ill due to food poisoning. What’s more, 3.000 people die and 128.000 are hospitalized yearly for having eaten contaminated food. Food poisoning can take place at any stage of the food chain, from production to preparation. And the most common food groups to lead to poisoning are produce, meat, poultry, dairy, eggs, fish and shellfish.

Since this kind of illness only presents itself several hours or days after the ingestion of contaminated food and is generally followed by mild symptoms, suing the restaurant is not worth it due to the absence of proof. However, when several people have fallen ill after eating a certain product or at a certain place, an investigation is triggered. In these cases, the common pathogens to blame are E.coli or Salmonella, which can require hospitalization. When this happens, you can contact an injury attorney like Terry Bryant to help you get an appropriate compensation to help you cover your medical bills.
