Motorcycle accidents alarm officials, lead to emphasis on motorcycle safety

As the summer turns to fall, many motorcyclists will be out on Denver area roadways. They want to enjoy the last few weeks of nice weather before they have to put their bikes away for the winter. Motorcyclists know all too well the dangers that they may encounter when they are out riding, and unfortunately, there have been a number of accidents that have led to serious injuries.

What is a phantom vehicle accident?

You are driving along a road you may have traveled hundreds of times without incident. However, on this day, a car veers into your lane, and in a split second reaction, you swerve to avoid a collision and crash into another vehicle. It is over so fast that, by the time you realize what happened, the other car has driven on and out of sight. This is what is known as a phantom vehicle accident.

Does workers' compensation cover my chronic condition?

Not every workplace injury is the result of a fall or other traumatic event. Some injuries can result from repetitive motion or long-term exposure to hazardous conditions. Since these illnesses or injuries may not be as obviously related to the work environment as a specific accident, some workers may not even realize that they may be eligible for workers' compensation.

New speed-limiting regulations may reduce truck accidents

Few people feel safe when traveling on the highway alongside a big rig. Some drivers may hold their breath as the trucks pass or even avoid the interstates altogether. The presence of tractor trailers is intimidating to many drivers because of the frequency of truck accidents and the catastrophic damage they can cause. However, a proposed federal trucking regulation is aimed at reducing accidents and saving lives.

Auto accident fatalities are near record high

Many are watching with eager curiosity as automotive technology evolves in the self-driving car industry. This futuristic step in highway safety is intended to remove the most common factor in motor vehicle accident fatalities: human error. In fact, 94 percent of all fatal traffic accidents are caused by a driver's mistake. Although technology is moving closer to the goal of driverless cars, it seems as if highways are getting more dangerous instead of safer.
