Stay Safe this Labor Day Weekend

As the summer comes to an end and students head back to school, many families celebrate their final days of freedom together over Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, many people sustain serious personal injuries from easily preventable accidents during this holiday weekend. Cory Watson attorneys have provided several safety tips to help you make the most of this time with friends and family, and save you from spending Labor Day weekend in the emergency room. Safety on the Road More than 35 million Americans are expected to pack up their bags and hit the road for a weekend getaway. If you’re traveling for Labor Day plans, you can certainly expect some traffic delays. It’s important to plan ahead, be patient, and always obey posted traffic signs. Remember to buckle up before you go, as seat belts can (and often do) save lives! Exercise more caution than usual – additional drivers on the road typically increases the odds of a potentially fatal car accident. “Value safety over speed, for the sake of your family as well as other drivers,” says Cory Watson personal injury attorney Curt Tanner. Don’t Drink and Drive Labor Day weekend is closely associated with increased alcohol-related traffic accidents. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that the Labor Day weekend is among the most dangerous for accidents on highways and byways. Never drink and drive. Let someone else drive, call a cab, get a ride, or just stay where you are. It is far better to be safe rather than sorry later. “Alcohol is responsible for thousands of serious injuries over holiday weekends every year, so make a safety plan and designate a driver before you get behind the wheel,” says Tanner. Safety on the Water Whether you’re at the pool, beach or out on the lake, take safety precautions and carefully observe boating laws. Pay attention to local notices like the colored flags for wave conditions at the beach. All boaters should wear life jackets while out on the water, no matter how skilled a swimmer they might be. “As a parent myself, I always make sure that young children wear a properly fitting life jacket when at the lake or beach,” says attorney Stephen Hunt. “With the distraction of family and friends, it is easy for a child to slip away unnoticed and potentially drown if they are not wearing a life jacket.” Enjoy Your Labor Day Weekend! Even the most safety-conscious can get into serious accidents, especially on holiday weekends. If you or someone you love suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence, contact the legal experts at Cory Watson. We understand how insurance companies work and are prepared to pursue maximum compensation on your behalf. Tell us about your case! Call (877) 562-0000 now or fill out our online consultation form.

Stay Safe on Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance, set aside for honoring those who have died serving our country. It also marks the unofficial start of the summer season. Many people celebrate the long weekend by going to the beach, lake, or road tripping with family and friends. However, holiday celebrations, crowds, and fun tend to increase the risk of injury, so it’s important to do everything you can to keep yourself and your family safe this Memorial Day Weekend. Don’t Drink and Drive this Memorial Day The three-day weekend is typically filled with family activities, parties with friends, and a traffic-filled drive to the beach. Those plans may also involve alcohol, and there can be devastating consequences if an impaired driver gets behind the wheel. With more drivers on the road, some of whom may be under the influence of alcohol, the risk of being involved in a car accident significantly increases. Remember these simple Memorial Day Weekend safety tips to avoid injuries: Don’t drink and drive, or get in a car with an intoxicated driver Don’t use your cell phone while driving Wear your seat belt and make sure backseat passengers are buckled up Obey posted speed limits, even if you’re in a rush to get to your destination Have a designated driver available to take you home. Even a relatively small amount of alcohol can dangerously impair judgment and affect reaction times Keep these water safety tips in mind if you and your loved ones are enjoying the lake or beach: Holidays are not the best time for beginner boaters to learn how to operate a vessel. Inexperienced operators are among the leading causes of boating crashes in Alabama and Tennessee. New boat operators should participate in boating safety course before heading out on the water. Practice water safety. If you’ll be out on a boat or by the pool, always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved PFD (life jacket), and never leave children unattended. When towing or pulling individuals on tubes or water skis, avoid spending prolonged periods in small areas. Look for calm, open water where boating traffic is light. Don’t drink and operate a boat, watercraft, bike, or engage in activities like swimming that require good judgment and coordination For more information on Memorial Day Weekend water-safety tips from ALEA’s Marine Patrol Division, visit Safe Boating | Alabama Law Enforcement Agency. Remember Our Veterans and Their Families Please remember to give thanks and offer prayers for our fallen soldiers and their loved ones. We are grateful to the service men and women who given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Think You Have a Case? Let Us Help. If you or someone you love is injured or killed due to the negligence or wrongful action of another person, contact Cory Watson Attorneys for assistance. Our experienced Alabama personal injury attorneys can protect your rights and get the compensation that your family deserves. Schedule your free consultation by calling (877) 562-0000 today.

2020 National Teen Driver Safety Week

We care deeply about our clients’ safety and well-being both on and off the road. In honor of Teen Driver Safety Week we’re focused on raising awareness about teen driver safety statistics and best practices for keeping your family safe behind the wheel. Here are important facts and statistics you and your teenager should know about teen drivers. Source: NHTSA Empower Your Loved Ones Remind your teen driver that driving is a privilege, not a right. If they aren’t following the rules of the road, they shouldn’t expect to have the keys to the car. Become familiar with your state’s nighttime driving restrictions, passenger restrictions, and all the graduated driver licensing (GDL) restrictions, and help law enforcement and educators enforce them. Practice constant communication about safe driving skills. Self-reported surveys show that teens with parents who set and enforce firm rules for driving typically engage in less risky driving behaviors and are involved in fewer crashes. Be a good role model for your teen driver and set an example with your own safe driving habits. Know the Facts about Teen Driver Fatalities Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for teens (15-18 years old) in the United States. Parents: You can be the biggest influence on your teen’s choices behind the wheel. Take the time to talk with them about some of the biggest driving risks for teens, including: Impaired Driving: All teens are too young to buy, possess, or consume alcohol. However, nationally, in 2018, 16% of teen drivers involved in fatal crashes had alcohol in their system. But alcohol isn’t the only substance that can keep your teen from driving safely. Like other drugs, marijuana affects a driver’s ability to react to their surroundings. Driving is a complex task, and marijuana slows reaction time, affecting a driver’s ability to drive safely. Remind your teen that driving under the influence of any impairing substance — including illicit or prescription drugs, or over-the-counter medication — could have deadly consequences. Seat Belts: Wearing a seat belt is one of the simplest ways to stay safe in a vehicle. Yet too many teens aren’t buckling up. In 2018, 45% of the teen passenger vehicle drivers who died were unbuckled. Even more troubling, when the teen driver involved in the fatal crash was unbuckled, 9 out of 10 of the passengers who died were also unbuckled. Distracted Driving: Distractions while driving are more than just risky — they can be deadly. In 2018, among teen drivers involved in fatal crashes, almost 10% were reported as distracted at the time of the crash. Put it Down: Talk to your teen about safe cell phone use while in the car. Require them to stow their phones while driving, designate a texter, or to pull over before answering phone calls or responding to text messages. Speeding: In 2018, 28% of all teen drivers of passenger vehicles involved in fatal crashes were speeding at the time of the crash, and males were more likely to be involved in fatal crashes than females. Passengers: Teen drivers transporting passengers can lead to disastrous consequences. Research shows that the risk of a fatal crash goes up dramatically in direct relation to the number of passengers in a car. The likelihood of teen drivers engaging in risky behavior triples when traveling with multiple passengers. Remember the Rules of the Road Don’t Drive Impaired. Set a good example and do not drive after drinking or consuming marijuana or other impairing substances. Remind your teen that drinking before the age of 21 is illegal, and alcohol and/or marijuana and driving should never mix, no matter your age. Driving under the influence of any impairing substance — including illicit, prescription, or over-the-counter drugs — could have deadly consequences. Buckle Up — Every Trip. Every Time. Everyone — Front Seat and Back. Lead by example. If you wear your seat belt every time you’re in the car, your teen is more likely to follow suit. Tell your teen to buckle up on every trip, every time, no matter what (both in the front and back seats), including in taxis and when using ride-sharing services. Eyes on the Road, Hands on the Wheel. All the Time. Tell your teen about the dangers of texting, dialing, or using mobile apps while driving. Require your young driver to put their phones away when they are on the road and turn on the “Do Not Disturb” or similar feature on their phone. Distracted driving isn’t limited to phone use; other passengers, audio and climate controls in the vehicle, and eating or drinking while driving are all sources of dangerous distractions for teen drivers. Know your state’s law regarding mobile phone and texting while driving restrictions; 38 states and Washington, DC ban all cell phone use by novice drivers. See Distracted Driving Law Chart. If your teen disobeys, enforce the penalties you set for your teen before they started driving. Obey All Posted Speed Limits. Speeding is a critical issue for all drivers, especially for teens who lack the experience to react to changing circumstances around their cars. Obey the speed limit, and require your teen to do the same. Limit Passengers. With each passenger in the vehicle, your teen’s risk of a fatal crash increases. Review your state’s GDL law before your teen takes to the road; it may restrict the number of passengers in the vehicle operated by a driver with a learner’s permit, and it may further limit passengers to adult family members only. Engage in Safe Driving Conversations Year-Round Start the conversation with your teen about safe driving habits during National Teen Driver Safety Week and continue the conversation every day throughout the year. Even if it seems like they’re tuning you out, keep reinforcing these rules. Get creative! Talking is just one way to discuss safe driving. Get it in writing. Create a parent-teen driving contract that outlines the rules and consequences for your teen driver. Hang the signed contract in a visible...

Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month: Frequently Asked Questions

Despite being one of the most exhilarating hobbies a person can take up, motorcycle riding poses significant dangers. Statistics show that a motorcyclist involved in an accident is 28 times more likely to die than someone driving a car. Motorcycle crashes often result in serious injury or death, and it is important for those involved to contact an experienced motorcycle injury attorney to properly recover costs for injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle wreck that was not your fault, you may have questions. Through our extensive knowledge of representing injured motorcycle collision clients, we’ve compiled the most frequently asked legal questions in order to help you make the right decisions. Why contact a motorcycle injury lawyer? You might be thinking, I already have insurance. However, insurance companies don’t want you to hire a lawyer. Studies show, people who hire a lawyer can get three times more than those who go it alone. When you work with a lawyer, especially one experienced in motorcycle accidents, you have someone on your side – not just an insurance company worried about their bottom line. These situations can be debilitating. If you are in pain and suffering, you deserve to have someone fighting on your behalf. Why should I trust Cory Watson with my case? With more than 38 years of experience, our attorneys are familiar with all the complex issues that can come up in motorcycle accident cases. Since a motorcycle offers minimal protection, the injuries can be severe and complicated. Additionally, motorcycles are often pushed or thrown off the road — or worse, into oncoming traffic, when struck by larger vehicles. Our firm is confident in investigating and negotiating these claims to get you the most possible compensation. How much will it cost to get representation? Our firm operates on a contingency fee basis. What this means to our clients is simple: if we don’t win your case, you won’t pay anything.

The best time to seek legal advice about your motorcycle injury is immediately! There are many steps at the beginning of a motorcycle wreck investigation to determine who is responsible, what insurance is available and what injuries resulted. The longer you wait to seek out legal counsel, the less evidence you may be able to preserve and collect. What kinds of injuries qualify to have a case? Injuries that our firm has helped clients recover substantial financial compensation for in the past as a result of motorcycle accidents have included traumatic brain injuries, head and spinal cord injuries, fractured bones, loss of limbs, extensive cuts and bruises (known as road rash), paralysis, burns, and wrongful death. Be sure to document any motorcycle injuries with your physician and keep careful records.

Phone Addicts are the New Drunk Drivers, According to Research

An analysis of driver behavior data found that drivers are growing more distracted by their devices. Distracted driving has become one of the leading causes of fatal injury accidents. If you were involved in a crash caused by a distracted driver, you know the tragic consequences of this bad habit. Drivers are 10 percent more distracted now than last year, a problem driven largely by smartphones, according to new research from Zendrive, a company that collects and analyzes data on driver behaviors. They share insights every April to commemorate Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The results found that “phone addicts”— defined as those people who are unwilling to put away their phones while driving — pick up their phones four times more than the average driver, use their phone six times longer than the general population, and have their eyes off the road 28 percent of the time. And their numbers are increasing — the number of “hardcore phone addicts” identified by the company doubled from last year. Today, one in 12 drivers on the road is a phone addict. If these trends continue, as many as one in every five drivers could be in the phone addict category by 2022. This growing category of hyper-connected individuals exhibits a pattern of dangerously distracted behavior unlike any other group of risky drivers on the road – and you could be one of them. Drunk vs. Distracted Driving: Which is Worse? Drivers distracted by their phones may already be more dangerous than drunk drivers. Phone addicts are glued to their phones, so they’re more distracted, more dangerous, and more likely to cause a crash. “Phone addicts have positioned themselves as public enemy number one, replacing drunk drivers as the ultimate threat on the road,” says the 2019 distracted driving study, released this week. In 2017, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported 10,874 deaths as a result of drunk driving and 3,166 deaths from distracted drivers. But fatalities caused by driver phone use are more difficult to track and are more likely underreported. In addition, those people are driving day and night, while drunk drivers are most active between midnight and 3 a.m. According to the Zendrive report, it means “that both in number and in timing, distracted drivers are a bigger danger than drunk drivers.” The most commonly used apps while driving are music and phone apps, edging out social media and texting. State laws and municipal regulations that ban the use of handheld devices entirely while driving could help the problem; however, these distracted driving laws are difficult to enforce. Contact the Distracted Driving Injury Lawyers at Cory Watson If you or a loved one suffered a serious injury caused by someone else’s distracted driving, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Contact the experienced distracted driving lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys immediately to protect your legal rights. We can offer the peace of mind that your case will be handled with expertise and compassion as we seek justice for you and your loved ones.

Nissan’s Brake Problems Continue, Recalls 86,000 Nissan Murano SUVs

Having your brakes fail while driving can be a terrifying experience. Car accidents caused by bad brakes result in serious, life-threatening injuries for everyone involved, and manufacturers are often quick to blame the driver instead of their defective brakes. Unfortunately, thousands of these faulty brake systems may have been installed in 2009 Nissan Murano SUVs nationwide. And this isn’t the first time Nissan has struggled with bad brakes in their vehicles. Symptoms of Nissan Bad Brakes Nissan is recalling more than 86,000 of their Murano SUVs (model year 2009) to address a faulty part in the antilock brake system (ABS). If this part fails, it could take longer for the driver to come to a full stop. Your vehicle may be affected if you have experienced any of these symptoms: Difficulty braking Soft brake pedal Anti-lock brake failure Brakes lack resistance Increased stopping distance Brake pedal hits the floorboard NHTSA Opens Nissan Investigation In April 2018, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened an investigation into brake-related problems with the 2009 Nissan Murano, looking into 14 allegations of crashes and more than 480 complaints in addition to reports of injuries.

5 Common Spring Break Injuries to Avoid from a Personal Injury Attorney

The weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer. This means spring is quickly approaching and students will soon be setting out for spring break adventures with friends. But before your child leaves town, be prepared – make sure their vacation won’t be wrecked by serious injuries or complicated legal matters. Here are five common spring break injuries that students may experience: Alcohol-Related Injuries It’s common knowledge that spring breakers love to drink. However, many accidents happen to innocent victims who are sober, just trying to make the most of their vacation. Alcohol poisoning, drunk driving accidents, and bar fights could all potentially result in injuries or death. Look out for underage drinkers or bartenders who continue to serve clearly intoxicated people. Under dram shop laws, an establishment serving alcohol may be held accountable for any death, injury, or other damages caused by an intoxicated patron. Violent Crime Injuries Violent crimes increase during spring break for several reasons. Criminals may see this time as an opportunity, and they prey on unsuspecting tourists or intoxicated bar patrons. Vacationers may find themselves the victims of violent crimes such as physical assaults, mugging, theft, drug crimes, sex offenses, or even murder. Stay safe during spring break by traveling with a buddy, avoid walking alone at night, and keep your wits about you during nights out on the town. Motor Vehicle Accidents Traveling to and from exciting spring break destinations can become deadly when faced with distracted driving, drunk driving, or sleep-deprived students dozing at the wheel. A greater number of travelers during spring break results in a higher number of car accidents. If you plan to go on a road trip or drive down to the beach, be cautious about your surroundings and drive defensively. Take turns at the wheel, and never assume that other drivers are paying attention to the road. Bar and Nightclub Injuries Bartenders have a duty to stop serving anyone that is noticeably intoxicated. However, it still happens. Alcohol fuels emotions and leads to rowdy bar fights, sometimes injuring innocent bystanders. Some people get alcohol poisoning and others are injured in drunk driving accidents as a result of being over-served. If you are injured due to over-serving, you may be able to sue the bar or nightclub under state dram shop laws. Common property-related injuries and incidents during spring break that could result in property owner liability also include elevator/escalator accidents, fire hazards and food poisoning. House Party Injuries Not everyone will be partying in bars or leave town during spring break. Unfortunately, house parties can lead to the same serious injuries. Homeowners may be liable for injuries that are sustained on their property or as a result of over-serving guests. If you have been injured at a house party in a slip and fall accident, in a swimming pool, in a fight, or due to over-serving, you may be able to sue under premises liability or dram shop laws. Contact our Birmingham and Nashville Personal Injury Attorneys Too many spring break vacations result in life-altering and preventable tragedies for students and their families. If you or a loved one sustains an injury over spring break, contact the personal injury lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys immediately as you may be entitled to financial compensation. Whether your child is a college student or younger, if they were injured due to the careless acts or negligence of another, you have the right to make a claim for damages. Let us be your families’ advocate. Our lawyers will review your case and fully explain your legal options.
