Helpful Internet Safety and Personal Injury Resources

We will, from time to time, add resources that support our practice areas, clients and potential clients. The goal is to promote safety in your life, or if injured to assist you to collect from the party that is legally liable. We aren't here for the insurance industry, which in my mind is interested mainly in promoting the float, and that means delay, delay and more delay. Anyone with any history of dealing with the insurance industry knows that I'm right. The entire industry is designed around the concept of delay.

Each adjuster has more files than they can reasonable manage; those same adjusters lacks authority to settle cases and are given low monetary levels of authority; above those adjusters are layers of management that further slow down the process and no decision is made until you are virtually standing at the steps of the courthouse. Simply put the insurance industry promotes the float.

For people delay isn't in their best interest. What is in their interest is getting paid wage loss, medical reimbursement and something for pain/suffering so they can catch up on the bills after suffering a serious injury that takes them out of the work. This resource page is for you too.

Over time I have expanded this website to include areas that serve my clients and interest me. Many people use the deposition preparation section to better understand what they will face when being questioned in a deposition. Feel free to do so, but please write for me a testimonial about your experience and whether or not my suggestions were helpful. I'm here to help with serious personal injuries including cases where the injuries include brain damage, paraplegia and quadriplegia. Help me to help you so call early, right after the accident - even if just to get some direction about whether and when you need to hire a lawyer. I'm always willing to listen.
