Many people are tempted to walk serious injuries off, not wanting to bother with seeing a doctor or paying medical bills. However, that attitude can prove to be deadly, especially when brain injuries are involved.
As St. Patrick’s Day draws ever closer, we are all looking for more of that old Irish luck in our lives. For many, the holiday is a welcome break from the turmoil of the past year, but if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that safety should always be our top priority. While you may hope to enjoy a lively party and night out for St. Patrick’s Day, drinking and driving is still a major risk.
Arizona has historically had one of the lowest auto insurance minimums in the country. However, that has recently changed. The auto insurance minimums were raised in 2020, and all Arizona drivers should be aware of what this increase actually means.
It’s that time of year again! The Husband and Wife Law Team is back with scholarships for 2021. Two diligent and passionate students will be given a $1,000 scholarship for their higher education. One winner will be picked from Arizona, and one will be picked from anywhere else in the country.
Self-driving vehicles may sound like an idea for the distant future, but that science fiction has already started to become a reality. Just as there has been a push to get self-driving cars road-ready, there has also been a push to get self-driving commercial trucks on the roadways as well.
Considering how much more dangerous big rigs are than sedans, you may expect that it would be several more years before self-driving trucks really hit the market, but what you may not realize is that these driverless trucks are already in use.
After a serious accident that was someone else’s fault, you will probably want to file a claim. This way, you can recover proper compensation. Without a claim, you may be left to pay for your property damage and medical bills with no help from the person who was actually responsible for your damages. However, what many people in Arizona don’t know is that the personal injury claim system operates on what is called “pure several liability.” What is several liability, and how does it impact your claim?
A new texting-while-driving ban has been passed in Arizona and took effect on January 1st, 2021. While some cities in Arizona have already issued cellphone bans in the past, this new law is meant to focus on the state as a whole, to push for safer roads. Distracted driving is a serious issue on the roadways across America, and especially in Arizona itself. The law is already having a major impact on the community.
The ability to see is something that many people take for granted. We use our eyes to navigate, communicate, and avoid danger. Unfortunately, sight doesn’t last forever, and many Arizonans experience vision loss as time marches on.
What you may not know, however, is that you can suffer vision loss through brain damage, meaning that an accident that didn’t injure your eyes in any way can still take your sight away.
With the holidays drawing near, many people in Arizona are excited to cook delicious food, celebrate with friends, and send presents to family. However, the holidays are not the brightest time of the year for everyone.
In fact, every holiday season sees a spike in car accidents, and many families are left grappling with the sudden injury or loss of someone they love. There are many factors that go into “why the winter holidays are such a dangerous time of year for people on the road,” but in our experience, there are a few more common causes.
Insurance companies rarely play nice, especially when they are being asked to pay out money. While we turn to insurance companies to help us recover from catastrophic accidents, they tend to put their own profits over their duty to their clients. That means that they will do everything they can to undervalue your settlement, and give you as little in compensation as possible. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to make sure you receive proper compensation following an accident.
