Gyms today are offering daycare centers, where busy parents can drop off their children before a workout. This may be a great amenity; however, you should be aware that the state does not regulate drop-off daycare centers in Arizona. Before entrusting a gym daycare with the care and safety of your child, take the time to investigate the center and its staff.
The luck of the Irish won’t prevent accidents, but responsible behavior just might. Saint Patrick’s Day is upon us, and for many people the holiday is a fun excuse to enjoy drinking with their friends. Unfortunately, that fun excuse can, and often does, lead to severe injuries both to yourself and to those around you.
Driving while intoxicated puts you and everyone on the road with you at incredible risk of serious injuries. Rates of car accident fatalities skyrocket during St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.

When you are choosing an auto insurance policy, it is essential that you know the types of coverage available, what your plan covers, and what might happen to your premium if you are involved in an accident.

On February 14th, anyone who has a partner knows it is time to do something to make that person feel special. It’s the one day each year to celebrate love. A funny thing about love is that emotions can run high – and when emotions are negative, expressed while operating a vehicle, everyone sharing the road is put at risk. Valentine’s day last year saw the highest number of accidents on a single day for the entire year, so we want to make sure everyone pay’s extra attention to safety this new year.
A slip-and-fall accident can lead to serious, catastrophic, or fatal injuries, and is far more dangerous than most people realize.

Arizona is one of the most popular places for snowbirds during the dark, cold winter months. While an influx of snowbirds helps the state’s economy, there is no question that these visitors can get on the nerves of locals. We assume you know what a snowbird is, but just to be clear – the term refers to retirees who choose to make the Phoenix area home during the cold winter months in Canada, the Midwest, or the east, returning home after the weather warms. They buy (or rent) condos or apartments during the months of October through May.
