When walking in a grocery store, hotel, or any other type of business, it’s common to see yellow signs posted around spills or wet areas. They warn those walking by that the floor is slippery and they need to proceed with caution. Usually, these signs are posted because someone noticed the immediate problem, but cannot fix it at that very minute. However, the sign shows that the right people are aware and they should get to the matter as quickly as possible.

If you’ve suffered from a slip and fall accident, there may not have been a sign present. This could have informed you that the area was dangerous. Your injuries could have been prevented had negligence not occurred.

Have you ever painted a whole room and had a sore arm or shoulder the next day? What about serious pain and swelling in that shoulder the day after? That would be an example of a soft tissue injury.

With the number of trucks on the road carrying a variety of goods and services, it’s important to classify these trucks so people can be kept safe.

Understanding Gross Vehicle Weight Rating

Knowing a vehicle’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) is important, especially if you’re driving a larger vehicle. If a vehicle is overloaded, there are a number of problems that could occur. If, for example, the vehicle is too heavy, the brakes may not be strong enough to slow the vehicle down or stop effectively. While a truck’s gross vehicle weight (GVW) can change, the GVWR will remain constant.
