Trucking companies may increase testing for sleep apnea

Carriers in Missouri and other states across the nation may soon require more truck drivers to be tested for sleep apnea after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a case related to the issue in April 2017. It was brought by a driver who claimed that one carrier's required testing for the medical condition violated his rights. With less fear of having to defend the decision in court following the rejection of the appeal, more companies may require sleep tests for drivers.

Study shows that side underride guards could save lives

Each year, Missouri residents are seriously injured or killed in collisions with large trucks. Some of these crashes occur when people's cars go underneath the sides of the trucks, crushing the cars underneath. A study has demonstrated that the installation of side underride guards would help to prevent these often deadly accidents.

Getting a DWI in Missouri is a serious issue

You may think nothing of getting behind the wheel after a few drinks. You know you are safe to drive, but then you're stopped by law enforcement. Maybe you swerved while driving, or perhaps there is a roadblock enforcement effort underway to reduce impaired driving in the area. Suddenly, you're spending a night in jail instead of your own bed and facing a driving while intoxicated (DWI) charge.

Home Depot facing civil suit after employee death

In late April, Home Depot's request to have an appellate court decision reconsidered was denied. The company is facing a lawsuit claiming that its negligence led to a pregnant employee's death. The woman was murdered by a supervisor at an offsite location. According to the lawsuit, the company knew that it was allowing a person with a history of harassing females to work as a supervisor.
