Largest increase in fatal traffic accidents on U.S. roads in decades

Recently, the government released data that indicates that there is a serious issue with safety on the roads and highways of the United States. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 35,000 people died last year in traffic accidents. Based on this figure, the number of people who died from traffic accidents increased 7.2 percent from 2014 to 2015. The last time the percentage of traffic deaths increased so much in a single year was in 1966, when Lyndon B. Johnson served as president. 

What should I do if I've been in an accident?

t's one of the things that crosses everyone's mind from time to time: What if I'm in an accident? You may not worry about it every time you get behind the wheel, but you know you need to be prepared, just in case.  Part of that preparation may include finding the right personal injury lawyer to represent you if you are injured in a car or motorcycle accident.  But that's not the only thing you'll need to do.

Statue or Statute?

Like most important legal questions, the issue of the statute of limitations has already been pondered by the great legal minds of Seinfeld. (Season 3, Episode 17, "The Café")

What the heck is PIP?

PIP stands for 'Personal Injury Protection'. It's a mandatory feature of auto liability insurance policies written in Massachusetts. If you've been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you are entitled to coverage for your own medical expenses, lost wages and other expenses, no matter who was at fault. Your passengers are also covered by PIP benefits if they've been hurt.
