Writing a Personal Injury Demand Letter

Insurance companies are not known as the nice guys, and for good reason. In a personal injury suit, most insurance companies will try to settle for far less than you deserve and create doubt as to whether you are even entitled to a settlement. A demand letter is necessary to help establish the legitimacy of your claim and negotiate. Your attorney can help you draft a demand letter that will receive results. However, if you are interested in the general basics of what a demand letter is composed of, read on.

Steps to Take if Falsely Accused of a Crime

Being falsely accused of a crime can be terrifying, but fortunately the justice system exists to give you a chance to prove your innocence. You and your attorney can work together to present evidence removing you from the scene of the crime. It is essential you call us as soon as you are accused so we can work to show you in the best light. After discussing the case with our lawyers, the next steps to take include:

When is it Okay for My Car to Block Traffic?

Drivers who block traffic are often honked at, yelled at, and generally not liked. But they also pose a risk to other drivers and can cause a crash or related accident. There are several situations in which your car may end up being a major roadblock, but in general you should steer clear of traffic and avoid putting your car in the path of other vehicles.

Things Not to Forget After a Car Accident

In the immediate aftermath following a car accident, you may be shocked and overwhelmed. Even an innocent driver may get hit, and you might be focused on whether or not the accident was your fault. If it was your fault, you might be stressed over the possible ramifications. However, acting right after the accident is essential to having the best outcome and avoiding future problems. Here are some of the most common things that drivers forget after an accident:

How is Criminal Sentencing Decided?

Criminal sentencing is a big deal right now in the news, especially with many trial outcomes being broadcast, and there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to determining the punishment for a crime. What if the defendant has no previous offenses? Or what if the defendant actually has a long track record? This is just one of many factors affecting what penalties will be assigned to the accused.

What To Do If You've Been a Hit-and-Run Victim

Most people dread getting into a car accident because of the time it will take for them to deal with the situation, the costs of repairing their car or paying for medical bills, and the injuries that may occur as a result of the accident. However, being the victim of a hit-and-run accident is even more upsetting, because it may feel like you are now completely helpless in dealing with a problem. However, despite this seemingly unsolvable solution, there are steps to take if you are in a hit-and-run to recover for any damages.

Be Wary And Merry: Dangerous Decorations

No matter what holiday you celebrate, decorations are always fun. To ring in the festivities you might find yourself putting up a tree, menorah, mistletoe, etc. And while most decorations are relatively harmless, there's always the risk that something might go wrong. Prepare for these unexpected injuries by reminding your family of the dangers associated with the ordinary, and celebrate a happy holiday season.

How Injured Must You Be to Claim Workers' Compensation?

Most workers are familiar with the term "workers' compensation." Workers' compensation refers to the program under which injured workers who suffered as a result of working conditions can get compensation for their injury costs (these might include medical bills and lost wages). The stipulation for filing for workers' compensation is that you must be able to prove that your injury is work related or was re-triggered by working conditions. This might include physical injuries such as broken bones, or mental and emotional injuries like depression or anxiety disorders. You might feel like you do not have the grounds to file a workers' compensation claim, but your injury actually does not need to be serious.
