There are many uncertainties to deal with when negotiating the aftermath of a personal injury, and figuring out whether to hire an

When you’re injured in an accident, it can feel like you’re alone in the world. You are suddenly faced with suffering and medical bills through no fault of your own, which can be isolating. This isn’t the case, though—thousands of people every year find themselves the victims of car accidents, medical errors, falls, and other

If you’ve been injured in an accident, this is a question you’ve probably asked yourself.

On February 11th, one of America’s best-loved and most respected journalists, 60 minutes reporter and veteran war correspondent, Bob Simon, was tragically killed when the livery cab he was a passenger in crashed on New York City’s West Side Highway. According to reports, around 6.45pm, Simon’s car lost control, and rear-ended another car, before striking

In 2006, 18-year-old Wisconsin Natasha Weigel and her friend, Amy Rademaker, were killed when Weigel’s car swerved off the road, and crashed into some trees. However, a fault with the ignition meant it had momentarily switched off, thus leaving the vehicle with no power for the deployment of airbags which could have saved the lives

At this time of year, perhaps more than any other, we want to be confident that the people whom we have charged with caring for our elderly relatives are doing their job properly; unfortunately, for many people, this simply is not the case. I’ve written before (here and here) about the shocking state of some
