Motorcycle safety: tips to avoid distracted drivers

Warm weather is quickly approaching, and that can only mean one thing for many Mississippi residents: the motorcycles are coming out to play. Most are aware of the inherent dangers of motorcycle riding -- especially when compared to the protection of a regular vehicle -- but it is easy to get carried away with the thrills of riding itself. Below are a few tips cyclists can keep in mind when getting out alongside other, potentially distracted drivers.

Why should you seek compensation for personal injury?

As a Mississippi resident who has been injured in an accident due to no fault of your own, you're left with a number of decisions that you need to make quickly. One of these choices is whether or not you want to pursue a personal injury claim. Shannon Law Firm, PLLC, is here to help if that is your goal.

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

April has received the designation as Distracted Driving Awareness Month. In addition to smartphones, drivers can become distracted from messing with the radio, eating and applying makeup. Thousands of people in the United States lose their lives each year due to distracted driving, and everyone needs to do better to keep their eyes on the road.
