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.

HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, and it was introduced in 1996. Its primary concern was to make sure that health insurance was provided to employees that were in between jobs, and to diminish the use of one’s health information in fraudulent situations.

In 2003, the Privacy Rule came into being, which was a way to protect the personal health information of every individual. Even with the law in place, there are actions that are acceptable with a written authorization, but there are also numerous actions that are illegal unless authorized.
