Medical conditions that affect driving

There are many different risk factors when it comes to auto accidents, but some are especially concerning. For example, someone who is suffering from a medical condition that could affect their ability to drive should make sure that it is okay for them to be on the road. Unfortunately, some people drive with medical conditions even though doing so is extremely dangerous. For example, someone may struggle with debilitating vertigo, vision problems or they may have seizures, which can significantly increase the probability of a wreck.

Protect yourself from debris on the road

If you are a driver in Michigan, there is a lot to be aware of on the road. Between practicing defensive driving to avoid accidents with other vehicles and driving in inclement weather, you need to be alert at all times. Another thing you need to be on the lookout for is debris that has come off another vehicle. Whether it is blocking the road or is flying through the air, this situation can lead to serious injury or death. Fortunately there are steps you and other drivers can take to avoid these disasters.

People who work in restaurants in Michigan are faced with many different safety hazards.

A denied benefits claim is not the end of the road for you

When you apply for disability benefits, it is because you are not able to work and earn a living to support yourself and your family due to an injury or illness. Due to the severity of your medical condition, you cannot continue to work or enter the workforce. Securing benefits through the Social Security Administration is important for you and your Michigan family.
