Bicycle Riding Safety Tips

Car accidents always have the risk of being fatal, but especially if there is a bicycle involved. The consequences of hitting a biker are severe, as these riders are typically unprotected from harm with the exception of wearing a helmet. While most bikers know the risks of heading out onto the roads, it isn't always the bikers fault if a collision does happen. In such a bike friendly city, Austinites should be more aware of their road companions to prevent accidents and injuries. Here's a breakdown of the precautions each party should take:

How Fatigued Drivers Can Avoid Car Accidents

Spending hours on the road settled in one position while driving past monotonous landscape is enough to exhaust anyone.

Distracted drivers may collide with other drivers or make other fatal mistakes. An estimated 100,000 car crashes are the result of a fatigued driver, most of these car accidents occurred while the driver fell asleep at the wheel. There are simple ways to remain alert on the road, a few of these are listed below.

6 Common Boating Maintenance Mistakes

It is the season of sunscreen, sandals, and water activities. When springtime rolls around and the sun makes an appearance we begin to itch to get in the water. Spending time on your sailboat, yacht, or speedboat can be an enjoyable activity if done correctly. Thousands of boating accidents occur each year and many of these accidents are preventable. Boat maintenance is just as important as automobile maintenance. Neglecting to properly maintain your boat can lead to serious accidents for you and other people on the water.

Austin Marathon Road Safety Tips

This year was the 25th anniversary and it came with a unforgettable memory. An elite runner Hyvon Ngetich finished the race by crawling on all fours.

Proactive vs. Reactive Measures in the Workplace

An ideal work environment is an environment in which employees feel their safety and well being is considered a top priority. Accidents in the workplace are often unpredictable and erratic, however implementing proactive procedures rather than reactive measures make it easier to deal with the aftermath of an event. The differences between proactive measures and reactive measures may be the determining factor that decide whether or not a business or company recovers from the incident.FreeConsultation_Austin_Accident_Lawyer.jpg

The 4 Different Types of Separation

Splitting up with your partner is often a painful and difficult decision to make. Serving your partner with divorce papers can often be the final act that completely eradicates any chances of possible reconciliation. If you are uncertain about the future of your marriage, other options exist that may be more suitable for you and your spouse. In most states, before you can file for divorce you must be separated from your spouse for a certain amount of time. This time period is meant to identify surfacing feelings of reconciliation from either or both individuals and also serves as a way for both parties to determine if the marriage can be salvaged. After the decision to file for separation is made the next step is to decide what type of separation is most appropriate for the given circumstances.
