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

Three people killed in three separate auto accidents. Three people killed were not wearing their seat belts.

Posted by John Harris on Sat, Jan 31, 2009 @ 11:44 AM

Last year by January 30th, 53 people had been killed on Virginia roads. This year by January 30th, 53 people had also been killed. The last three that were killed died in accidents caused by icy roads. The interesting and alarming thing about the three most recent deaths is that each of those killed were not wearing their seat belts. Two of the three who were not wearing their seatbelts were either rejected or partially ejected. The lesson to be learned from these three deaths is that one should always wear their seatbelt. The idea that one can be thrown three of an accident without serious injuries or deaths is totally false.

Two Teens Killed in Spotsylvania auto accident

Two Spotsylvania County teens were killed on August 21st when their Ford F-150 overturned and crashed into a tree. They were both wearing their seatbelts so I suspect the roof crushed down on them when it rolled over. This would fit some of the recent article regarding inadequate roof support. This is sometimes called inadequate rollover protection. What are your thoughts.
