Winter Safety Tips: Your Vehicle

With winter weather quickly approaching, it is important to make sure your vehicles are properly maintained and supplied in the event of a collision or in case you are stranded due to weather conditions. According to the Department of Transportation, 22% of all vehicle crashes in the United States are due to severe weather. That means during the winter, driving conditions are most dangerous with snow, sleet, ice, and rain.

Top 7 Car Accident Lawsuit Questions

As personal injury lawyers who have handled thousands of car accident cases, we find that most of our clients have similar questions. Here are seven frequently asked questions we are often asked concerning car accidents.

Do you remember to buckle up as a passenger?

Many times when you go out with your friends, another person may offer to drive. Because you certainly enjoy having the ability to relax and save money on gas, you likely often take individuals up on this offer. What you may not fully realize, however, is that when you get into a vehicle as a passenger, you place your safety and life in the hands of the person driving the vehicle.

Even if you know the driver well and trust his or her skills, you could still end up being involved in a serious car accident. As a result, you may suffer serious injuries that take a considerable amount of time to recover from. There are several ways you can protect yourself while riding in someone else's car, and one of the best safety measures to always wear your seat belt.

Winter Safety: At Home

Divorce and the Holidays

The holiday seasons can increase stress on a strained marriage, and the hopefulness of a new year can be an unhappy spouse's a way out. During the holiday season, there is a spike in divorce filings and online searches for a divorce attorney.

5 Most Common Family Law Issues During the Holiday Season

The most common family law issues that come up over the holidays include proposing, eloping, divorce, child custody, and grandparent visitations. In this blog, we are going to touch base on some of these topics, but if you would like more information, contact one of our attorneys today.

Holiday Drunk Driving

During this holiday season everyone looks forward to family gatherings, socializing with friends, and office parties. This is a time where some people get a chance to cut loose and celebrate more than normal. They have a few more drinks and hop on the road to make it home. Since very few people work on Thanksgiving, it is common for people to binge drink on "blackout Wednesday". According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving or MADD, the Thanksgiving holiday produces more fatal drunk driving collisions than other holiday celebrations.

Be Safe: Black Friday Shopping

The day after Thanksgiving is traditionally one of the largest shopping days of the year. Stores are competing with each other on sales, door busters, and incentives. Shoppers are often starting their black Friday shopping right after Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. For some families and friends, it has become tradition to shop all day the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Utah Nurse Receives $500,000

We all remember back in July of this year where a nurse was arrested for refusing to take blood from an unconscious man. The nurse was released less than an hour later and never charged. On November 1st, the nurse and her attorney reached a settlement with the city and university that owns the hospital for $500,000. The University of Utah is splitting the costs of settlement with the city after it was found that university officers failed to resolve the situation or defend the nurse from being arrested.
