3 symptoms of asbestos poisoning

Asbestos is a common yet highly toxic material that is found both naturally and unnaturally in many objects. Direct exposure can cause a host of ailments, though, including mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. Each of these ailments has different symptoms, but exposure to asbestos in general can be tentatively identified by a few symptoms. It is imperative that you seek treatment if you have any of them.

Prescription medication and large truck collisions

Large truck crashes sometimes happen because of truck driver fatigue due to working too many hours or not getting enough sleep at night, the use of alcohol behind the wheel, distractions such as cell phones, and countless other reasons. However, prescription medication can be especially problematic, and many truck crashes have been caused by a truck driver’s prescription use, whether or not they are following their physician’s recommendations. People take many different drugs for various reasons, but prescriptions can adversely affect a person’s ability to drive safe.

Motorcycle accidents and Memorial Day weekend

Any time of the year can be dangerous for those riding motorcycles, but holidays are often especially concerning for multiple reasons. Not only do holidays such as Memorial Day bring an increase in traffic, some people drive drunk after celebrations as well. If you plan on riding a motorcycle over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, it is crucial to be vigilant and aware of the risks that you may encounter. Sadly, many innocent lives have been lost in accidents during this holiday and many people have sustained devastating injuries.

Delivery truck drivers and traffic collisions

Many people face risks associated with driving on a daily basis, but some people are especially likely to be involved in an accident at some point, such as those whose job responsibilities revolve around driving. For example, someone who drives a taxi, a large truck, a delivery truck, or a vehicle for any other work-related purpose likely spends a lot of time behind the wheel. Sometimes, these drivers are hit by the recklessness of others, such as those who are drunk. In other instances, they may cause an accident as well. For example, delivery truck drivers may be very tired after working for an extended period of time.

Holiday weekends and drunk drivers

With Memorial Day weekend coming up, you may be looking forward to spending time with those you love and celebrating the holiday. Sometimes, these celebrations involve alcohol and sadly many people choose to drive after drinking at a get-together. Whenever you are on the road, there is always the risk of being hit by someone who is intoxicated after drinking or taking drugs. However, there are certain occasions, such as holiday weekends, when these accidents are even more likely. As a result, you should be vigilant during the upcoming holiday weekend and during other holidays throughout the year.
