Staying alert makes car accidents less likely

Drivers in Nevada know factors like poor road conditions, unpredictable motorists, wildlife and bad weather can lead to car accidents. Those who keep a few safety tips in mind while they're on the road may have a better chance of avoiding crashes. Adhering to traffic laws, being in the right condition to drive, paying attention and wearing a seat belt all reduce the risk of car accident injuries.

Determining driver negligence

When a car accident results in a personal injury, affected residents of Nevada might immediately start thinking about how they can prove another driver was at fault for the wreck. Fault in a car accident is referred to by the legal definition of "negligent driving." While negligent driving has a broad definition in casual conversation, its legal definition is slightly different. For example, while a person affected by a car accident may feel the other driver was negligent, in order for a court to agree, there has to be a loss or personal injury.

Grocery store chain protects against slip-and-fall accidents

Slip and fall accidents in retail and other public establishments can cause serious injury to people in Nevada, but one company based in Pennsylvania has taken steps to almost completely eliminate the risk. Redner's Market, which operates in three eastern states, has addressed the major errors made by many other businesses of failing to have a thorough plan in place and failing to follow safety procedures. The company is employee-owned, and this may contribute to the conscientiousness shown.

Motor vehicle safety tech could lead to new kinds of accidents

Researchers have claimed that some new motor vehicle safety technologies might cause confusion among drivers and lead to more accidents. Drivers in Nevada may have already encountered cars equipped with automatic emergency braking or lane control systems. According to a professor of cognitive sciences, the developments in motor vehicles are parallel to the development of autopilot systems in airplanes. As pilots had to learn how to work with autopilot, so must drivers learn the benefits and limitations of new safety technologies.

How to sell a company

There are many reasons why Nevada business owners would want to sell their companies. For instance, an owner may have no one to pass it on to or may simply want to liquidate the company for a profit. To ensure that the sale process goes smoothly, it is important to have a team of professionals assisting with the transaction. Ideally, this team will include an accountant, an attorney, and key employees.

Newly licensed teens more likely to crash than teens with permits

A study conducted by Virginia Tech University and the National Institutes for Health found that teens are eight times more likely to get in a crash or near-miss with another car during the first three months of owning a license than during the last three months of owning a permit. Nevada residents should know that, according to another study from the NIH, car crashes are the leading cause of death among those aged 14 to 19.

Jump parks see more severe injuries than at-home trampolines

Nevada residents who go to a trampoline park should know that these parks see a greater percentage of severe injuries when compared to trampolines at home. A study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons has found that while 66% of injuries in general occur on home trampolines, as opposed to 34% for trampoline parks, the percentage of severe injuries is 55% at parks and 44% on home trampolines.

Nevada startups may be able to cash flow their business

Startups need operating capital to remain solvent. To secure funding, entrepreneurs often turn to angel investors or venture capitalists. However, such funding usually requires entrepreneurs to give up a substantial portion of their company's equity in exchange for funds. In some cases, it also means that the entrepreneur could eventually lose control over company operations. Other methods of obtaining cash for a business may not be not so arduous.
