Most common injuries in a motor vehicle accident

The injuries that can occur as a result of a motor vehicle accident do not depend entirely on the severity of the accident per se. In other words, the accident can be "mild" (say, a small collision with the bumper, for example), but the injuries can be extremely serious. If we continue with the example we have set (a slight shock to the fender) - and believe it or not - that simple, seemingly harmless incident can actually lead to traumatic brain injuries. Therefore, the nature of the injurie...

Frequently asked questions about rollover accidents

What to consider when hiring a personal injury lawyer (II)

In a previous article, we touched on a rather important issue: the process of selecting a personal injury attorney. In the aforementioned text, we explained the current situation regarding the hiring of these professionals: most people have not done so in accordance with the recommended parameters.

We are not satisfied with criticism and just pointing this ou...

Usually, people base their decisions on superficial and completely irrelevant aspects in determining the quality and expertise of a legal professional.

S. citizens.

Basically, there are 3 questions our clients usually ask us about this particular coverage: 1) Is this coverage very important? Should I buy it o...
