Important Legal Tips For Auto Accidents.

Driver Making Phone Call After Traffic Accident


Auto accidents happen; when they do…..what next?


Each year an alarming number of auto related accidents occur in the United States of America. Reports from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that 35,092 U.S. citizens lost their lives on our roadways in 2015. Sadly, this was an increase from 32,744 recorded back in 2014. The statistics on those injured or disabled after an auto accident are equally disturbing! The good news is that these numbers can be easily reduced. Many factors that contribute to these accidents such as cell phone distraction, drunk driving, patience, poor eyesight, etc. are mostly and easily preventable…..reasonable precautions and responsibility is all it takes.

To date, many people are unaware of the proper steps that should be taken when involved in an auto accident. No matter what situation you’re in, it is imperative that you know your legal rights and responsibilities after the accident. No all accidents are the same. You will not go through ordeal with each. Sometimes you’ll have to deal with citations, medical issues, insurance claims, lawsuits, etc. You should strongly consider having legal representation to help in matters such as these. A large majority of contracts or agreements were written in a language only they can fully understand. Your legal counsel will help you understand your legal rights and options. Investing in legal representation is a smart investment in yourself and time.

There’s a couple things you should do after you’ve been involved in an auto related accident:

a) Call the police to the scene and file a report. ***Please note that in some state the police aren’t obligated to come unless there’s a bodily injury or injuries.

b) Exchange information with the driver(s) of the other car(s). Collect information such as their driver’s license, address, phone number and insurance information. And if there are witnesses at the scene take down their information as well!

c) Take photos of all vehicles involved as well as the scene (location) of the accident.

These steps is all it takes to moving forward will the process. I hope the information in this blog has helped in any way. Safe driving everyone!




Here’s One Thing To Consider Prior To Renting Or Leasing Your Next Home?



Have an attorney review the contract before you sign

Sure: a lot of people can read contracts, but when it comes down to understanding certain certain parts of what you just read, it’s nothing more than a bunch of blah-blah-blah! Most contracts weren’t meant for the average person to understand. It’s always best to have an attorney review the contract prior to you signing. The money you spend to have it reviewed could save you a lot down the road.

When Legal Issues Arise, What Do You Do?



We all face legal issues more often than we think

Stats show that in 2015 fifty seven million Americans had at least one legal issue. The number is actually much higher because legal issues arise in our lives more often than we all think. Issues such as landlord-tenant disputes, warranty disputes, signing contracts or documents, receiving a traffic ticket or having a dispute with a creditor are all legal issues. Sadly most people when facing a legal situation will not consider calling a lawyer simply because they feel the cost will be too high… most cases they are right. Many lawyers and law firms typically charge two hundred an hour (or so) to handle a case. And depending on the type case or even where the law firm is located, the cost can reach several hundreds to over one thousand dollars.

The good news in all this is that you don’t have to face these type situations on your own and there is affordable legal representation out there that the average American can afford. The day of having access to high quality legal representation is no longer reserved for the rich alone…..the color of justice is no longer green! ┬áHaving the right legal representation to make phone calls or even send letters on your behalf is a smart choice in assuring that your legal issue gets handled properly…..not to mention removing a good portion of stress you may have. Please remember this, you don’t have to go through it alone and we all have the right to equal legal representation.

The choice is yours, either handle it on your own or get the help you need and deserve. Go get it!
