Injured in a car accident? Be sure to get witness statements

A car accident can happen when you least expect it. For example, imagine driving along on your daily commute to the office.

The other driver ran a stop sign and T-boned you on the passenger side.

How an attorney helps with insurance issues after a car crash

You've been faithfully paying your motor vehicle insurance premium for years, maybe even decades. When you experience a serious accident and injuries as a result, you expect that your insurance provider will cover the injuries.

Proving fault in your car accident case

Avoid these 4 mistakes if you're ever in a motorcycle accident

As a seasoned rider, you know that every time you get on your motorcycle, there are risks. The vast majority of those risks come from other drivers - specifically, drivers who don't see you. When most drivers pull up to an intersection or make a left turn, they aren't looking for motorcycles. They're watching for other cars (if they're paying attention at all).
