With as many accidents as there are each year, it’s important for residents of Topeka, Kansas, to know how they can prevent being involved in a trucking accident.
Specializing in trucking accidents, the personal injury attorneys at Mann, Wyatt & Tanksley Injury Attorneys in Topeka, Kansas, have learned the specific details of many trucking accidents over the years. Personal injury attorney, Scott Mann, shares a few common sense tips for remaining safe on the road:
- Be alert. If you’re tired or distracted by your phone, you’re putting yourself at risk!
- Take every precaution you can, such as wearing your seatbelt.
- Drive within the speed limit.
