Whiplash is not a minor injury

Whiplash injuries have to some extent gotten a bad name, even to the point where advocates of so-called tort reform use whiplash as an example of how people misuse the legal system to get hefty compensation for minor injuries. Thankfully, it is true that whiplash often clears up on its own after a few weeks. However, the fact that the outlook for recovery is often good does not make whiplash a minor injury. A person suffering from whiplash may suffer stiffness and pain in the neck, a limited range of motion, tingling, chronic fatigue, headaches and the like.

Modification to federal rest rules on the horizon

Many truck drivers and drivers of other commercial vehicles in Washington are subject to what are officially called the Hours of Service Regulations, but which commonly get referred to as the federal rest rules. The goal of these regulations is to prevent fatigued truck driving by requiring truckers subject to these rules to take an extended rest period, 10 hours off duty, from time to time.
