  • 4 Reasons You Need An Attorney After a Car Accident

    If you have been in any kind of motor vehicle accident, you have a lot of things you need to do. First, you need to get treatment for any injury you may have sustained in the accident. After that, many people think the next thing they need to do is call their insurance carrier. While on the surface that makes a great deal of sense. If you have a good policy and have been with your insurance carrier for a long time, you may expect them to treat you well. That is not always the case.

  • What to Do If You’ve Been Hurt and Can’t Work

    When you sustain a serious injury, whether it is because of truck accidents, workplace injuries, a drunk driver, or the negligent behavior of anyone else, you will find expenses going up quickly while your income drops precipitously. You are missing work, so you’re not bringing in your regular income and are especially unable to take advantage of things like overtime opportunities. At the same time, you’re spending money on hospitals, doctors, and physical therapy. You may be spending more on items around the house that you need while you’re laid up and missing work. In addition to all of this, you may even be in need of constant care at home. This can mean hiring someone to help (more money spent) or a spouse is missing work in order to take care of you (less money in). What are your options?
