Exhaustion, hard work plague workers in the most dangerous jobs

Workplace fatalities in the 1970s reached as high as 14,000 per year before the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was created during President Richard Nixon's administration. Deaths on the job have steadily decreased since then. In 2016, just under 5,200 workers died. Statistics show that there are some industries that are more dangerous to work in than others.

Never skip wearing a seat belt: Your life could depend on it

Imagine you just ran out of milk and the kids need cereal for breakfast before you race them to school. Without a moment's hesitation, you hop in your car to drive to the corner store. You take a moment to consider putting on a seat belt, and you say to yourself, "I'm just heading around the block. I don't need to use a seatbelt."

Bad faith insurance claims can be difficult to prove

When you're hurt in an accident, the obligation falls on the insurance company to investigate a claim, decide liability and settle the issue for a fair amount. Instances in which an insurer is slow to process, investigate or pay a claim may constitute a bad faith action. If so, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against them.

How can you avoid distractions behind the wheel?

It's very obvious to you that distracted driving is dangerous. Any time something pulls your mind away from the road -- a bright billboard, for instance, or a beautiful home for sale -- you know how it impacts your ability to process things around you. Intentional distractions like sending text messages, you're sure, are even worse.
