Distracted Driver Awareness Month

April is Distracted Driver Awareness Month. Join me in the fight to increase public awareness of the dangers of driving while using mobile devices. We’ve all been there. The driver next to us is looking down at her phone. Take a look at the National Safety Council’s website: https://www.nsc.org/learn/NSC-Initiatives/Pages/distracted-driving-awareness-month.aspx Distracted Driving is a national problem. […]

When You Can’t Work Because Of Injuries You Sustained In An Accident.

Financial devastation. My clients depend on a steady stream of income not just to live on and support themselves but to continue to fulfill their obligations to themselves, to their families, to landlords, mortgage holders, school loans, credit cards, etc. Often they cannot work as the result of their injuries or they work against medical […]

I am frequently asked to explain the difference between the criminal courts and the civil courts.  This often comes up when the same wrongful act  results in proceedings in both types of courts.  One example of this is when a drunk driver causes serious injury.

MEDICAL MISTAKES

Holidays

I am gratified that so many of my clients have recommended me to their family and friends.  It continues to be a privilege to represent injured parties in serious injury and death claims arising out of accidents or negligence.  I am writing to remind you to please be alert this joyous but busy Holiday Season.
