Cancelling a vacation due to an auto accident

Motor vehicle collisions have a number of consequences and our law office’s blog has covered many of the hardships that victims have to work through. From physical pain to mental trauma and financial concerns, these wrecks are often devastating for those involved as well as those they love. It is important to bear in mind that these collisions can create other problems in victims’ lives, which auto accident victims may not even realize at first. For example, they may have had a vacation planned in the future and there are a number of reasons why an accident may derail these plans.

Talking with your kids about your decision to divorce

The decision to split up with a spouse can be hard for many reasons. For starters, some people worry about the financial repercussions that may come with the end of their marriage, whether they have concerns about how marital property will be split up or they are worried about the amount of child support or alimony they will be obligated to pay. Outside of financial concerns, there are other things to consider, such as the emotional impact of divorce and how this decision could affect kids.

Do you know what coverage you get from workers' compensation?

Any day that you go to work, you risk a potential injury as a result. Even if you work in retail or a comfortable office setting, the danger is there for a work-related injury or acquired illness. Sometimes, work injuries are the result of a fluke or unusual accident. Even spilled coffee could result in serious injuries. Other times, injuries more closely reflect the nature of the job.

Divorce in the digital era

If you are in the early stages of moving ahead with a divorce, you could have various questions related to legal issues and how this decision will affect your life. With social media and so much access to information, you may also be impacted by technology as you work through the end of your marriage. There are a variety of ways in which technology can impact a person’s divorce, both positive and negative. From online posts to accessing a world of information, it is important to take advantage of the benefits of technology and watch out for some of the pitfalls as well.

Thick fog, rain and other weather hazards

When it comes to motor vehicle accidents, a number of factors may lead to a crash. Many wrecks are the result of a driver’s negligence, such as those which are caused by drunk driving or other examples of reckless behavior. With that said, many other factors cause crashes, such as vehicle-related problems (brake issues, etc.) and poor weather conditions. From thick fog to snow, ice and heavy rain, there are many different ways in which weather can make a motor vehicle collision more likely.

Memorial Day and drunk driving crashes

A motor vehicle accident brought on by the consumption of alcohol may happen at any time of the year or time of day. With that being said, certain days are especially dangerous when it comes to drunk driving. For example, the holidays bring families and friends together for celebration, but this can also lead to the consumption of alcohol. For some people, Memorial Day celebrations are so hectic or exciting that they forget they consumed enough alcohol to put them over the legal limit and end up driving drunk, even if they consider themselves a responsible driver. Sadly, this behavior places many lives at risk.
