Are you sharing the road with a fatigued driver?

When you think about the great safety concerns on the road, you may think about things like distracted driving and drunk driving. However, you may not think about the specific dangers of when a person gets behind the wheel while he or she is too tired. Fatigued driving can be incredibly dangerous, and it is one of the leading causes of accidents in Missouri and across the country.

Smartphone addiction can cause auto accidents and personal injury

The word "addiction" can have inherently negative connotations regardless of the topic. However, for Missourians and people across the nation, it is an apt way to describe how many people perceive their smartphones. Unable to put it down even if it puts them and others in danger, the problem of distracted driving is getting worse because of it.

Time-barred debt and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act

Missourians who are experiencing financial turmoil will feel overwhelmed at the pressures they face. This can come from the uncertain future and the constant calls and letters they receive from debt collectors who want to get all or some of what is owed. While some debts will be subject to collection attempts regardless of when they were accrued, there are protections that a consumer has based on the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. For debts that are "time-barred," it is important to know the alternatives. As with any financial issue, getting on stronger financial ground frequently requires legal assistance.
