FMCSA plans new large-truck crash causation study

The last time the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration conducted a formal large-truck crash causation study was in the early 2000s. The report of that study was sent to Congress in 2006. Now, the FMCSA has plans to conduct another study. In a formal proposal made January 2020, the agency said it is gathering data on how the use of phones and on-board electronic systems has factored into truck crashes in North Carolina and across the U.S.

What to include in a business sale contract

After a business owner in North Carolina agrees to sell his or her company to another person or entity, the terms of the deal will be put into writing. The contract will need to include the name of the person who is selling the business and the name of the person buying it. It will also need to include the name of the business that is being acquired. Furthermore, it will need to specify the assets that the buyer is acquiring in the deal.

How to limit liability after a commercial truck crash

An expanding economy has created an increased need for commercial truck drivers in North Carolina and throughout the country. These drivers are often required to spend long hours on the road to meet their employer's needs. According to data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, there was an increase in most types of large truck and bus accidents between 2016 and 2017. This data indicated that there was a 10% increase in the number of accidents that resulted in fatalities.

How to time the sale of a business

Ideally, business owners in North Carolina and throughout the country will get maximum value for their companies. However, to get top dollar for their organizations, owners will need to time the sale properly. Depending on how long a person has owned a company, it may be possible to look at its prior performance to find useful patterns or cycles. Determining such a pattern may make it easier to put the company on the market when it should be most desirable to buyers.

Avoiding motorcycle accident risks

As more and more people in North Carolina and across the U.S. choose motorcycles as their primary means of transportation, the number of motorcycle crashes will go up. There are a number of dangers that riders must be aware of, especially those involving weather, road and traffic conditions. Reduced visibility at night is another danger, contributing to as much as 60% of all motorcycle crashes.
