Increase in truck accidents across nation's highways
New research suggests that older commercial truck drivers may be causing danger on the highways.
According to a recent CBS News article, the American trucking industry is struggling with a shortage of drivers. In an effort to compensate, many companies are recruiting retired truck drivers. Ten percent of commercial truck drivers are 65 years old, or older. According to CBS News correspondent Kris Van Cleave, the rules of the roads have not kept up with the times, raising the question:

Is more screening needed for commercial drivers?

  • In the summer of 2009, a semi driven by a 76-year-old rolled on top of three cars, killing ten people.
  • More recently, on Aug. 19 in Newark, New Jersey, a bus was T-boned by another N.J. Transit bus driven by a 70-year-old, killing two people.
  • A couple days later, on Aug. 25, a truck hauling stones driven by a 74-year-old slammed into traffic in a construction zone in Binghamton, New York, injuring ten people.

A CBS News analysis of crash data reveals that in just the last three years, 19 percent increase in accidents involving commercial truck and bus drivers in their 70s, 80s, and 90s. From 2013 to 2015, there were more than 6,636 truck and bus accidents involving elderly drivers in just 12 states.

“The industry is looking for truck drivers. There’s a shortage in truck drivers. So they’re not going to self-regulate. The only way that that could be done is on the federal level,” Oklahoma Highway Patrol Lt. James Loftis said.

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration deputy administrator Daphne Jefferson acknowledged the increase in older commercial drivers. Her agency is currently studying the trend. She reported to CBS News, “We are not quite at the point yet where we are ready to say one way or another if there needs to be a change in driver rules for, say, drivers over 65.”

In the aftermath of an accident, the stress and anxiety that come with it can be overwhelming and even incapacitating at times. Anush Alexander, Vice President of Marketing at the Injury HelpLine® (and RW Lynch, parent company) along with Personal Injury Attorney Eric Jensen, spoke to The Balancing Act’s® host, Julie Moran, about what steps to take after an accident and the importance of seeking legal counsel to protect one’s interests.

While an initial settlement from an insurance company might be tempting, Ms. Alexander and Mr. Jensen will highlight, in this segment, why it may not be in the best interest of the injured person, their future, or their family’s future.

To Whom it May Concern:

I have been a customer of R. W. Lynch’s Injury Helpline® off and on for the past 5 years. The fees realized from the new cases generated by the Helpline have consistently paid for and exceeded our financial commitment to the advertising. Two of our contracts, both for single call areas, have resulted in six figure fees, including most recently a wrongful death case involving a 26 year old female survived by her elderly father.

While not every call results in a retained client, the HelpLine provides our firm with the knowledge and security of regular in-take calls, expanding our contact base, and the confidence, based on past experience, that we will receive high value cases.

RW Lynch PI Industry CompetitiveRW Lynch recognizes that competition is now stronger than ever for legal services.  According to the ABA there are currently nearly 1.2 million attorneys in the United States.  In states like NY, CA, and IL competition is even greater with the number of attorneys accounting for nearly 25% of that total (over 260,000 in these 3 states combined).

Marketing, now, more than ever is an imperative for all lawyers and no one understands this better than the personal injury attorney. Personal injury attorneys have understood for years that marketing your services effectively is the key to running a successful practice.  However, with the growth of cable networks, internet, mobile, social networks, internet TV … even the most successful PI attorney is questioning what route your marketing should take.

Every day I see a new article or blogger pushing the latest, most important marketing method: write more content, search optimize your website, start blogging, start tweeting, advertise on cable, advertise on the internet, don’t forget mobile … and the list goes on and on.  The questions most attorneys are asking are: “which one is the most effective” and “where should I spend my money and time.”
