I Want to Break Your Hand

Broken-Hand.jpgIf you've been injured in an accident, it's usually a good idea to have an attorney representing you. But even after you hire a lawyer, it's still your case and you get to make all of the major decisions. The following story from my new book, Maximizing Your Injury Claim, illustrates this point:

Recovering from a car accident is tough -- but possible

A car accident is jolting -- literally. In a car accident, a person's body can go through significant trauma. Serious injuries -- like a head injury, spinal cord injury or internal trauma -- can make it impossible for a person to survive without medical intervention. People may spend weeks, months or years recovering from these injuries. Sometimes, people will spend the rest of their lives struggling with the effects of a car accident.

What types of injuries are caused by car accidents?

In a recent post, this blog discussed the case of a fatal car accident. In that accident, one person was injured and two people were killed in a collision between two cars in Sammamish. Accidents, like this one, often remind people just how dangerous it can be to drive in a car, especially when other drivers can be so dangerous. It may make people think about all the different injuries that can be caused when a person is in a car accident.

Two killed in Sammamish car accident

Cars are so common in our culture that it is easy to forget that they are machines, and just like any other piece of machinery there are risks involved in operating it. Instead, many Washington residents look at cars and think that they are just like any other consumer good. However, they really need to be treated differently. When people step into a car, they need to give the task of driving their full and undivided attention. If people get into a car without this type of attitude, serious car accidents can occur.

Making the Most of your Deposition

This post is an excerpt from the blog of Idaho attorney Kurt Holzer of the firm Holzer Edwards. It offers some great advice of what to do, and what not to do, during your deposition. We spend a lot of time with our clients before their depositions making sure they are prepared, and these tips are just a few of the things we usually cover. These seven valuable guidelines are reprinted with the permission of Mr. Holzer:

Types of distracted driving

Most Washington residents understand that driving takes considerable skill. While it might look easy, people are actually using their mind and their body in conjunction with each other to safety operate the vehicle. People need to not only understand how their car works, but they need to learn to anticipate potential dangers on the roadways so they can be avoided. In order to do this, people cannot be distracted.

The Wilderness of a Personal Injury Claim

wilderness1.jpgIf you've been in an accident, what is the first thing you should do? Who should you speak to and who should you never speak to? Are there any documents you should sign? What kind of doctor should you see and who will pay them? Most importantly, if you aren't a lawyer, how on earth are you supposed to know the answers to these questions?
