Initiating a Claim: The Road Less Traveled

If you have been in a car or truck accident, and have suffered an injury that the insurance company won’t offer compensation for, you have two choices. You can either:

Say nothing, accept the pain, the additional expense, the decline or loss of income, and the strong possibility that both the quality and length of your life will be less from now on;

Hire an experienced attorney, who may give you a whole new perspective on your situation.

It’s really quite amazing how many of those injured say nothing or try to handle their own claim

Fatal Wrong-way crash caused by drunk driver.

Posted by John Harris on Tue, Mar 24, 2009 @ 10:30 AM

A drunk driver going the wrong-way on I-95 at 96 miles per hour crashed into an automobile killing the driver of that car. The fatal accident killed Robert L. Thomas and severely injured Franshaw Jackson. Jackson suffered injuries to his heart, chest and brain. It is hard for me to call the wreck and accident. Drunk driving is not an accident. It is a criminal act. Don't drink and drive. Drinking and driving is a deadly mix.
