The costs of a serious car crash including repairing or replacing your auto, medical expenses, missed work and no income, can add up quickly. If you are under these financial constraints, it may seem that hiring an expensive attorney may is unattainable. However, attorneys do not cost what you may think.

Why Having An Attorney Represent You Is Needed

What many people are not aware of is that insurance companies are under no obligation to settle for a fair amount. They have a staff of agents who are trained and whose only job is to pay you as little as possible to keep making money for their stockholders. Some ways insurance companies minimize payouts:

● Make an initial offer unreasonably low so other still inadequate offers seem more reasonable
● Misrepresent your legal rights such as telling you there is no compensation for pain and suffering
● Advise you that you will get less compensation and it will take years if you hire an attorney
● Waiting... ...read full post

This Stall Issue Can Lead To Accidents And Injuries

This Stall Issue Can Lead To Accidents And InjuriesIt can be quite scary when a person's vehicle gets a flat tire or stalls out on a roadway. Motorists, even those here in Florida, are not always the kindest or most sensitive people. They want to get where they are going as fast as possible with no delays. Then, if someone breaks down in the middle of an Interstate or side street, it is not uncommon for other vehicle operators to speed past them without a care in the world. Heck, the drivers may even honk their horns, yell out the window, or give the person an unflattering hand gesture.

However, things happen, for whatever reason, and drivers are not always able to steer their cars to a safe location. Even with the most rigorous maintenance routine, parts and pieces can malfunction from time to time. If such problems occur out on the open road, and another motorist isn't paying attention, they could easily rear-end or T-bone the broken down auto. Car collisions are not particularly kind and gentle. Rather, they usually leave drivers and passengers alike with wounds such... ...read full post

Unfortunately, the stories don't usually come with happy, heart-felt endings.



Rather, the incidents often lead to crashes and injuries. Auto collisions are anything but forgiving. They are not fun, and nobody wants to be involved in them. However, sometimes, things happen, and the event is inevitable. Maybe an operator was speeding, not paying enough attention, or driving while intoxicated.

Be Wary Of The Tires On These Motorhomes Before Heading Off On Your Big Trip

 Be Wary Of The Tires On These Motorhomes Before Heading Off On Your Big TripSome families enjoy going camping or traveling all across the country to take in the sights, and they often like to do so in style. In other words, they don't pack the mini-van down with luggage and try to fit six people inside. Instead, persons go out and buy a motorhome to ensure that they have enough room for everyone and belongings. Plus, whenever the group gets where they are going, there is no need for them to rent a hotel as they already have a place to stay. 


Heck, some folks even use the recreational vehicles when they attend music festivals like Burning Man or Coachella. The units are a perfect choice for Floridians going out of town for Mardi Gras in New Orleans too. These examples just go to show that motorhomes can be used for a lot of different activities, ones that are both family-friendly and adult-oriented. 



Many of the models are big and hard to steer though. The driver can run into complications when attempting to turn into a driveway or make a... ...read full post

Determining Liability In A Car Accident During Extreme Weather

Determining Liability In A Car Accident During Extreme WeatherAs we enter peak hurricane season in Southwest Florida, extreme weather will soon be hitting our roads. During this time, we see an increase in car accidents. Heavy winds and rains make our roads extremely dangerous and reduce visibility. With these conditions, it can be difficult to determine who, if anyone is at fault for a car accident.

Understanding An “Act Of God”

An “act of God” is a term that insurance companies use to describe accidents that are no one’s fault. For example, if heavy winds are blowing and a tree falls onto your car, it’s not really anyone’s fault. The weather caused the damage and since the weather is neither a person nor an entity, it can’t be held accountable. Many accidents during hurricane season are considered an act of God and are rightly classified as such. However, there are also many accidents that happen during extreme weather that are the fault of other drivers.

How Insurance Companies Manipulate Acts Of God

Insurance companies are not in the business of paying claims, they are in the business of making money. So they will do everything... ...read full post
