Truck accident settlements: pros and cons

Truck accident claims can cover everything from medical expenses and vehicle repair costs to disability benefits and compensation for pain and suffering, so it's important for victims in Missouri to decide whether they should go through a civil trial or opt for an out-of-court settlement. While a civil trial can become a prolonged and costly affair, settling out of court can save victims time and money.

Cellphones less dangerous than daydreaming drivers

Missouri who do not have their minds on the road in front of them could be more likely to cause a fatal accident than cellphone users according to a study by Erie Insurance. The company examined 172,000 fatal accidents over a five-year period and found that of the 10 percent of those accidents that were caused by distracted drivers, daydreaming was a factor in 61 percent. Cellphone usage was in second place but far lower at 14 percent.

Radiologists and workplace injuries

Some Missouri residents may be among the almost 33 percent of practicing radiologists in the United States who have lower back pain related to their job. According to a commission workforce survey conducted by the American College of Radiology, lower back and neck pain are some of the most frequently occurring workplace injuries sustained by radiologists. Almost 500 radiology practice leaders were enlisted by the ACR's Human Resources Commission for the survey.

Taking medicine generally improves the odds of SSD acceptance

When a Missouri resident submits an application for social security disability benefits, approval won't be based on prior medical history. This means that an applicant doesn't need to be on medication for a condition to receive benefits. However, the disability examiner might ask if taking medication could make it possible for an individual to work.
