Pursuant to California State Law, (Proposition 213) you must have minimum liability insurance coverage of $10,000 Property Damage, $15,000 bodily injury per person, and $30,000 per incident while you are driving on California Roads.

If you do not have minimum liability insurance coverage, you will NOT BE ENTITLED TO GENERAL DAMAGES (pain & suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, etc.), and you may lose your drivers license, and a fine. Even if the accident was not your fault!

Most personal injury attorneys will not represent you on a contingency basis unless you had liability insurance at the time of accident, because the value of your case is limited to out of pocket losses only such as: Property Damage, Medical Expenses, Medication Expenses, Loss of Wages, etc.

There are many options when it comes to purchasing automobile, motorcycle, and other motor vehicle insurance. Like the old saying goes, you usually get what you pay for. This section is not meant to be a treatise on auto or other motor vehicle insurance coverage. However, we will generally discuss the different types of motor vehicle insurance coverage.

Liability Insurance Coverage: As discussed above, this coverage is required by law. This insurance coverage will cover you for any losses that you may have caused to others, up to the dollar amount of your insurance coverage, for any accident that is your fault. Some policies cover you for any car that you drive, including rental cars, and some policies only cover you for a specific car. Make sure you check with your insurance company as to any limitations on your coverage, and actually read the policy to confirm what you are told. We recommend that you obtain as much liability insurance coverage as possible because in the modern era, cars and medical expenses have become outrageously expensive. A simple automobile accident could have $20,000.00 in property damage, and $30,000.00 in medical expenses. If you only carry the minimum insurance coverage allowed by law, you could be on the hook for the balance of any damage that you cause. Some liability coverage’s also exclude members of your household or immediate family members who live with you from “suing you” the driver and/or recovering from your liability policy even if the accident is your fault. We again recommend that you check with your insurance company. You want to make sure that your coverage includes your passengers and family members that may be injured in an auto accident. Top

Comprehensive and Collision Coverage (Comp/Coll): This type of coverage will cover the damage to your vehicle if you are in an accident that is your fault up to the “Fair Market Value,” of your vehicle. It will also cover your vehicle up to Fair Market Value if it is stolen. Some Comprehensive and Collision coverage’s will cover damage to your car even if the accident was not your fault. Check with your insurance company as discussed above. If the cost of repairing your vehicle exceeds the Fair Markey Value of your vehicle, than the insurance company will consider your car to be a “total loss,” and only pay you Fair Market Value for your care. Now what is Fair Market Value? Fair Market Value is the amount of money that your vehicle is actually worth on the street. Many people confuse this issue. You may have paid $35,000.00 for your car, and you may owe $30,000.00 on you car, however, once you drive the car or vehicle off of the dealers lot, it automatically decreases in value. Although you have paid the above amount for your car, and you may owe the above amount for your car, the Fair Market Value of you car may only be $15,000.00! Insurance companies value your car on many factors which include but are not limited too: Year, Make, Model, Mileage, Condition, What identical or similar cars are selling for in your area, etc. Many times people find out the hard way when their car is totaled or the repair cost exceed the Fair Market Value of the car, that the amount you receive from the insurance company is way below the amount owed on the car. In today’s market where new cars average $30,000.00, this situation is not uncommon, especially when the cost of repairing simple bumper damage may exceed $5,000.00. We recommend that you always purchase Comprehensive and Collision Insurance. Without this type of coverage, you will get nothing for your property damage if the accident is your fault, and/or you will be at the mercy of the other drivers insurance company if you are not at fault. Check with your insurance company and read your policy for any limitations of coverage. Top

GAP Insurance Coverage: This type of Insurance policy covers the difference between the Fair Market Value of your vehicle, as discussed in the Comprehensive and Collision section above, and what you actually owe on the car. When you purchase a new or used vehicle on credit from a dealer, more often than not you are required to not only purchase Comprehensive and Collision insurance, but you are also required to purchase GAP insurance so that the finance company knows that will be paid in full if the car is totaled. Regardless of whether it is required or not, we always recommend purchasing GAP Insurance coverage if you owe a third party money for a car. As discussed above in the Comprehensive and Collision Section, you do not want to get stuck paying thousand’s of dollars on a car mortgage after an accident, when your car has been declared a total loss after an accident. We cannot tell you how many times victims of accidents find out the hard way that their insurance company will not pay enough money on a property damage claim, to cover what is owed on the vehicle. Nobody wants to get stuck for thousands of dollars in payments on a vehicle they no longer own. We recommend getting GAP Insurance on your vehicle if you owe money on the vehicle. Top

Under Insured Coverage: This type of insurance coverage will cover you for the difference between your actual damages, and the at fault persons insurance coverage. In other words, let say you are hit by a person who has minimum insurance coverage, (10k/15k/30k) who is at fault in the accident. Under normal circumstances the most you will be able to recover from their insurance company is for your injuries, and out of pocket loss, etc., is $15,000.00. Let’s say your actual medical bills and out of pocket loss is $100,000.00. What are you going to do? If the person who hit’s you does not have any assets there is little chance that you will ever collect the $95,000.00 difference from them if you sue to get a judgment. If you do get a judgment, they could declare bankruptcy and discharge the debt they owe to you in it’s entirety. We find that in many instances, an at fault persons coverage is not enough to cover our client’s actual damages and they get stuck in the catch 22 situation discussed above. We believe that it is always better to error on the side of caution. We always recommend purchasing Under Insured Coverage for a minimum of $100,000.00 or more. The more the better. This is your way of insuring yourself, against an at fault persons deficient coverage. Top

Uninsured Motorist Coverage/Bodily Injury (UM/BI): The name speaks for itself. This type of insurance coverage will cover you for your “non-property” related damages if the other motorist who is “at fault,” has no liability insurance. In the State of California we feel that this type of coverage is mandatory due to the vast amount of people driving around illegally without insurance. This coverage will also cover hit and runs. We recommend purchasing the most UM/BI coverage you can afford and at least a minimum of $100,000.00. If you are in an accident and the other motorist is uninsured, this coverage will be your only recourse in many instances. Do not drive in California without some kind of UM/BI coverage. Top

Uninsured Motorist Coverage/Property Damage (UM/PD): This is the same as UM/BI discussed above except this insurance will cover you for the Property Damage to your vehicle if you are hit by an “at fault” or “hit and run” driver. As discussed above, some Comp/Collision insurance policies will cover you if your vehicle is damaged or totaled by an at fault uninsured motorist, but some will not! We always recommend to error on the side of caution and purchase insurance to cover you in this instance. We have seen many accident victims lose their vehicles in accidents due to the fault of hit and run or uninsured motorist, and get stuck with no vehicle and massive vehicle payments because they did not have the proper insurance. We always recommend that you insure your body and your property against the uninsured motorist, and hit and run driver. Just like Comprehensive and Collision mentioned above, this coverage will on cover your vehicle up to the fair market value of your vehicle. Even if you may have paid and/or owe $30,000.00 on your vehicle, and your buy $30,000.00 UM/PD coverage on your vehicle, the insurance companies will only cover you for the Fair Market Value of your vehicle only with this coverage.

Rental Car Coverage: This type of coverage will pay you a certain amount of money per day to procure a rental car in case you are in an accident. Check with your insurance company to ensure that you will be covered both when you are at fault, or the other person is at fault. Sometimes insurance companies will require you to pay for a rental car out of your own pocket and then submit bills to them for reimbursement. Most of the time this type of coverage only pays $20.00 to $30.00 per day up to a dollar maximum, or for a maximum of 30 days. In many instances, the cost of getting a rental car and insuring the rental car against loss, will exceed your rental car coverage policy. However, we always recommend buying rental car coverage in your insurance policy. We cannot tell you how many times we are faced with client’s who were not at fault in an accident, and they have lost their only transportation. If the at fault motorist’s insurance does not immediately cover you for rental car payments, you will be stuck paying the entire amount on your own until either your vehicle is repaired, or you procure another vehicle. We know this is not fair. This is why we always recommend getting Rental Car Insurance Coverage. Top

Medical Payment Insurance (Med Pay): This type of insurance pays for your medical bills if you are in an Auto Accident. Many people already have Normal Medical or Health Insurance. However, often times there are co-payments that have to be met, and/or deductibles, as well as medication cost that your medical insurance will not cover. It is important to get as much Med Pay insurance as possible. When you are injured in an auto accident, often times Med Pay is the first payment your insurance company will make to you. Usually they will automatically pay this amount when presented with medical bills. We recommend getting this coverage.

Deductibles: Most Comprehensive/Collision, and Uninsured Motorist coverage’s have deductibles, meaning that you have to pay the first $500.00, $1,000.00 to $2,000.00 of any damages on these types of claims and your insurance will cover the difference. You can even pay for zero deductible insurance coverage. The bottom line here is let’s say you have a fender bender with $900.00 property damage with a $1,000.00 deductible, and you have Comp/Collision coverage. You insurance company will accept the claim, but since you have a $1,000.00 deductible, you will get no money because you have to pay the first $1,000.00 since that is your deductible. The issue of deductibles is one of personal choice. Usually your premiums are lower with a higher deductible, but then again, you will have to pay a higher price or receive a lower settlement if you have a higher deductible. If you can afford it, we recommend getting a low deductible. We have seen clients who opted for high deductibles, lost their jobs, and than had an accident. They were not able to get their vehicles out of the auto body shop until they covered the deductible. You get the picture, the whole purpose of insurance is to protect yourself in case of lose. It may be better to pay a bit more for a lower deductible when you have a job and money, then risk not being able to cover the deductible in bad times. Top

State Disability Insurance, Other Disability Insurance: If you are injured after an auto or motor vehicle accident, you will most likely be out of work for some time. Personal Injury cases are not settled overnight especially if litigation is necessary. Cases can sometimes take 1 to 2 years or more to resolve. If you are placed in an off work status by your doctor, we highly recommend that you apply for California State Disability Insurance (SDI). (You must be eligible) SDI will not cover the entire amount of your lost wages, but it is better than receiving nothing if you cannot work. You are eligible to apply for SDI after two weeks of being disabled, and your doctor will need to fill out the necessary forms to provide to the State. You may also be entitled to sick pay and/or accrued vacation pay from your employer. We recommend contacting your employer if you can to provide them with your off work order from the doctor, and request your accrued vacation pay and sick pay to give you money in the interim while you are waiting for SDI to start paying. There are many private insurance options that will cover your entire salary if you become disabled as well. We highly recommend insuring yourself against becoming disabled due to vehicle accidents, but also illness. If you employer terminates you because you cannot work, and you are not eligible for SDI you may be able to recover unemployment insurance benefits from the State, however these benefits are usually lower than SDI. Do whatever you can to bring money in while you are waiting for your case to be prosecuted, and/or you can go back to work. Top

Medical Treatment

Medical Treatment and Your Case.
The type and amount of medical treatment you receive is an indication of the seriousness of your injuries. The client who receives $500.00 worth of medical treatment will not, as a general rule, receive the same settlement as a client with $5,000.00 in medical treatment. Most insurance companies grade the seriousness of injuries as minimal, slight, moderate or severe. A minimal injury is one in which the client has $1,000.00 or less in medical treatment to cure the injury. A slightly injured client has over $1,000.00 to $3,000.00 in medical treatment. A client with medical treatment expenses over $3,000.00 to $5,000.00 is moderately injured. Medical expenses in excess of $5,000.00 shows severe injury. Use the following rules as a guide to your medical treatment.

Follow the Doctors Advice
You should accept the type and amount of medical treatment the doctor recommends. Some types of treatment may appear not to help at first. Often the doctor may change the type of treatment for better results. Keep in mind your doctor has been chosen for the doctor’s competence in treating your injuries. Any question as to whether you should continue medical treatment should be directed to the doctor.

Do not Understate Your Complaints
Each time you see your doctor tell the doctor: 1. The location of your pain; 2. The amount of pain (slight, moderate or severe); 3. What you can not do (disability); and, 4. What you do to relieve the pain. Do not tell the doctor you “feel fine” if you have pain. The doctor cannot help you if you do not tell the doctor your complaints. Do not expect the insurance company to pay for your pain if you say you “feel fine.”

Do something About your Pain
The insurance company has a very simple rule. The rule is “If it is important enough for you to see a doctor for your complaint, is important enough for you to be compensated for the complaint.” In other words, the failure to treat with a medical doctor (according to the insurance companies) means that you must not be that hurt! If you are in pain you must appear to be trying to get well (mitigating damages). That means going to the doctor for help. If the doctor releases you from therapy and you are still in pain return to the doctor. You know how you feel better than anyone else. Return to the doctor as soon as possible if you are still having pain. If you wait a year to return back to the doctor, it will appear to the insurance companies that you “must have a new injury,” or you are trying to embellish your injuries. Use your common sense, if you are hurting from your injuries, see your doctor!

Accident Preparation
Everyone knows a car accident can occur anytime anywhere, but they always seem to happen at the most inopportune times. If you are unfortunate enough to be stranded in a ditch during a snowstorm while waiting for assistance, you definitely need to be prepared for the worst.

The number one item on anybody’s emergency items list should always be a cell phone. Even if you don’t want to pay for one on a contractual basis, you have the option of purchasing a prepaid phone and loading it with minutes only as you need them. No matter what, you always need to carry a cell phone with you when you are traveling long distances, especially in rural areas where you run the risk of being isolated during an emergency.

Other than a cell phone, you should enroll with an emergency roadside service provider such as AAA. Keep your membership card in a convenient location inside your vehicle because if you find yourself in a jam, they will be able to:

Change a flat tire.
Tow you to your house or a repair shop.
Remove your keys that were locked in the car.
Provide updates on weather and road conditions.
Offer turn-by-turn driving directions.
If you never were taught how to change a tire independently, the time is to learn is now. You should always carry a spare tire in your trunk with a jack and a wrench. If there is not much space between traffic traveling in the right lane and your parked car, do not attempt to change a tire; the risk of someone running you over is too great.

In case of a medical emergency, always store a standard first aid kit in your vehicle that is readily accessible. This contains materials that can be utilized to stop bleeding or soothe burns while an ambulance is on the way. It is also a good idea to keep medication for bee stings and a general guide to first along with CPR instructions.

Additional items that should be kept in your vehicle include:

Portable tool set containing wrench, wire cutters, screwdrivers, and tape
Jumper cables
Gas canister
Water (for radiator)
Fire extinguisher
Hand cleaner powerful enough to remove grease
Road flares or reflective triangles
Bright-colored flag to warn others of a broken down vehicle
Rags or paper towels
Blankets (preferably light-colored)
Nonperishable food
Flash light with spare batteries
Motor oil
Flat tire repair kit
Pocket utility knife
Useful pointers

If your vehicle is broken down along the road, do not sit inside the car until help arrives. Another driver could veer of course and run into you from behind.

If you are stranded in your car during cold weather, clear your exhaust pipe of snow or any other foreign objects before running the heater to stay warm. If the tailpipe is blocked, toxic fumes will seep into the cabin.

Don’t be too friendly to strangers who approach your car. Lock the doors and roll up the windows in case they have other intensions. If they offer to help you, just ask them to call the authorities or emergency services. If you have already contacted someone, tell them you’ve taken care of it and appreciate their kindness.
==================
Driver Distractions
There are certain driving rules set in stone like driving on the right side of the road and stopping at a light when it turns red. These are a necessity in order to maintain order and traffic fluidity. However, traffic laws can only do so much; in the end, the responsibility falls on the driver’s shoulders to follow these laws and pay attention to all that’s happening on the road.

Almost all driving calamities are caused by our inability to concentrate. Anything that garners your attention and takes your mind off the road greatly improves your chances of being involved in an accident. Without 100 percent of your effort focused on driving, your reaction to a dangerous obstacle will be delayed much longer than it should.

A rampant problem

Paying attention at all times is the golden rule of driving. According to a study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in spring of 2006, some type of driver distraction occurred in every four out of five crashes and 65 percent of close calls within three seconds of the incident. In other words, it only took mere seconds of limited attention to cause a disaster.

This day in age, multitasking in the driver’s seat is becoming the norm. Automobile manufacturers seem to be filling their vehicles with all sorts of amenities as subtle as cup holders or as obvious as DVD players and LCD screens installed in the dashboard. It is practically acceptable to see drivers:

• Eating or drinking.

• Surfing through radio stations.

• Switching CDs

• Talking on a cell phone.

• Engaging in conversation with passengers.

• Tending to children who demand attention

• Reading.

All of the above activities compromise the driver’s capacity to scrutinize and respond to the rapidly changing environment of the road.

Changing your viewpoint

Safe driving is dependent upon driver attitudes; drivers who consider their vehicles extensions of their homes may have a tendency to overlook safety in favor of convenience and entertainment value. On the other hand, those who distinguish their vehicles as extremely large and powerful weapons waiting to be misused are more apt to view driving in the literal sense—an intricate task that requires total attentiveness if it is to be done correctly.

Curbing driver distractions

• Ensure that young passengers are comfortable and appropriately fastened in child seats. To prevent children from bothering the driver, give them safe materials to keep them busy (e.g., coloring books, stuffed animals, etc.). Make sure pets are secured inside their carriers as well.

• Stop the car if you or anyone else in the vehicle intends to eat or drink. It is possible for anybody to choke if they are chewing while the car is moving, creating a major disruption for the driver. By pulling over, you give you and your passengers the opportunity to take a break from the stress associated with traffic and enjoy your pick-me-up without having to rush.

• Plan out your journey before you get going. If you’re unsure of the area, pull off to the side of the road to plot the route and avoid the hassle of looking at a map while trying to watch the road.

• Finish primping yourself before leaving the house. Never attempt to shave, put on makeup, or brush your hair while operating a motor vehicle.

• Do not participate in arguments or upsetting conversations with passengers or over the phone. These situations can lead to aggressive or unpredictable driving patterns.

• Proceed with caution, and prepare yourself for bad weather or careless drivers, pedestrians, or cyclists that you may share the road with.

• Get to know your vehicle inside and out, especially internal switches and dials that control various mechanisms. This is absolutely necessary if you are driving an unfamiliar vehicle such as a new or rental car. Prior to shifting to drive, practice using these instruments so that you can perform vital tasks such as running the headlights, wipers, and defrosters without having to look.

• The only thing your hands should be touching is the steering wheel, and the only thing your eyes should be looking at is the road while the vehicle is in motion. Unless you have a hands-free kit or Bluetooth headset, you should not be talking on a cell phone while driving. Make your calls before departing from your home or office, or else postpone them until you reach your destination. In the meantime, anyone trying to reach you can leave messages on your voicemail. If it happens to be an emergency, pull off to the shoulder or into a parking lot to use the phone.

Air Filter | Auto Accident Injury and Repair Resources
Coolant
Coolant is the fluid that captures heat produced by the engine and disposes of it through the radiator. The heat is also dispersed through the heat exchanger in the passenger compartment when you turn on your heater in cold weather. Coolant, normally referred to as antifreeze, is a 50/50 combination of ethylene or propylene glycol and water. Servicing the coolant is a two-step process of draining and/or flushing the vehicle’s cooling system and replenishing what was emptied with a fresh supply.

Should this service be performed at recommended intervals?

Yes, because swapping the old coolant for new rids the cooling system of soot that can clog it up and create issues with heating and cooling in the winter and summer months.

Why is it necessary to change the coolant?

Since coolant operates in an environment where extreme heat is a factor, it naturally breaks down as time passes. Furthermore, the coolant’s rust inhibitors become depleted, leaving the tiny cooling passages of your engine and radiator susceptible to corrosion. Despite the presence of rust inhibitors, corrosion is likely to occur with age. In turn, the coolant will become polluted with rust particles and other debris.

What happens if I stop changing the coolant for a lengthy amount of time?

If the rust inhibitors fail, the interior of the cooling system will begin to deteriorate until the exterior rusts out as well. The biggest contributor of rust in a vehicle’s cooling system is the engine block. As time goes by, rust bits will also cause an obstruction to the small passages inside the radiator and heater. Eventually, this buildup will cause the engine to overheat. When this happens, you can be sure you’ll have to pay a mechanic a large chunk of change to restore your vehicle.

Is there any upkeep that may be necessary between scheduled coolant maintenance?

You should check your coolant level according to the stated interval in your owner’s manual. If the engine temperature is cold when you check the coolant level, the coolant should be even with or above the “minimum” line on the clear refill container. If you check the coolant when the engine is hot, it should be no higher than the “maximum” fill line.

If you notice the coolant seems to have disappeared, this could be caused by an external or internal leak. An internal leak is more expensive to repair, but either one should be fixed as quickly as possible because operating on little to no coolant can result in cataclysmic engine failure and an even larger cost to fix the problem.

If you live in a climate where the temperature often drops below freezing, request that your mechanic checks the concentration of coolant. Watered down or weakened coolant may have the ability to freeze if the temperature falls below 32°F.

Consult your owner’s manual to find out if your vehicle uses “long-life” coolant. If so, the only maintenance your car should require is checking the coolant level to verify whether coolant is leaking or burning.

Quick tip

Antifreeze has a smell and taste that appeals to household pets. A mere half teaspoon is capable of killing an average-sized cat, and eight ounces will kill a 75-pound dog. There is nothing that can be added to antifreeze to decrease its appeal to animals, but antifreeze made with propylene glycol, as opposed to ethylene glycol, is about 67 percent less toxic. Look for the brands Sierra, Prestone Low Tox, and Texaco PG for safer antifreeze.
=========================
Tire Pressure
Tire pressure is the amount of air in an automobile’s tire measured in pounds per square inch. To be safe, you should check the amount of air in all four tires at least once a month using a pressure gauge.

Should I check the tire pressure if a technician recommends it?

For sure.

What is the point of this procedure?

Filling your vehicle’s tires with the correct amount of air is a safety issue that cannot be taken for granted. Aside from the brakes, tires are the most important safety device your car has to offer. Poor tire pressure can negatively impact cornering, braking, and stability. Even worse, it can contribute to tire failure and a bad accident. Improper tire pressure can also affect the quality of the ride, gas mileage, and tire life.

What happens if I neglect my tires?

If tires are overinflated, less of the tire’s surface area comes into contact with the ground. As a result, the vehicle will dart all over the roadway, traction is reduced, the required amount of stopping distance increases, and overall comfort is compromised.

If tires are under inflated, more of the tire’s surface area comes into contact with the ground. This increases friction between the tire and the roadway. Thus, the tires are under more stress, which leads to rapid wear and tear. Increased friction also triggers overheating, which in turn may cause the tread to separate. Tread separation is extremely unsafe and could result in a terrible accident, especially at a high rate of speed. If your tires squeal around corners, you should probably make a stop to fill them up.

Even if there are no obvious signs that your tires are leaking, you should check the tire pressure because it varies depending on the temperature outdoors. For every ten-degree drop in temperature, tire pressure is reduced by approximately one pound per square inch. For example, if you last checked your tire pressure in the middle of summer when it was 80°F, and it’s now -20°F in January, there is a good chance your tires may be dangerously under inflated by as much as ten pounds.

How do I determine the correct amount of air to put in each tire?

Many people’s gut instinct is to look directly on the tire itself to find out the exact amount of pressure it should be inflated to. However, this is misleading because the figure on the tire is actually the “maximum allowable air pressure” as opposed to the suggested pressure for that tire on a specific vehicle.

The suggested tire pressure is usually below the maximum tire pressure. Your vehicle owner’s manual will inform you how to locate the suggested pressure, which is most likely found on the driver’s side door pillar, the glove box door, or the gas tank door. Once you’re aware of the manufacturer’s suggested tire pressure, you will need a dependable tire gauge to verify the pressure. Analog (dial) or digital gauges are the most accurate, while the pencil-style gauges tend to be the least reliable.

It is recommended that you check the tire pressure when the vehicle hasn’t been driven for a few hours and has been sitting at air temperature. It is also acceptable to drive it a few blocks if you need to reach a gas station to access a pressure gauge. However, if you’ve just driven for a few miles down the highway, don’t expect a precise reading.

Don’t forget to check the pressure of all four tires and make a false assumption that since three of the tires are correctly inflated, the fourth must be identical. In fact, that last tire could even be going flat. It can’t hurt to check the spare tire periodically since the last thing you would want is to find it flat in a time of need. If your spare tire is a “donut,” or one that is smaller than your regular tires, the pressure is probably not going to be the same. The suggested pressure for the spare should appear right on the tire.

Should I monitor my tires in between scheduled maintenance intervals?

Even if you do not have any apparent problems with your tires, you should still check their pressure at the start of each season or before you leave on a long trip. Any time you do bring your car in for other scheduled maintenance, request that a service technician checks your tire pressure. Chances are, they’ll do this for free, and it’ll give you a good indication how accurate your personal pressure gauge is.

Quick tip

Even if your tires look fine to the naked eye, you should still check them with a pressure gauge. Radial tires can be even more deceiving and may still look normal even if they are over or under by ten pounds.

Odometer
An odometer is responsible for keeping track of the distance a vehicle has traveled. Modern cars normally contain digital odometers, while older ones have mechanical. The numbers on the digital readout are similar to those on an alarm clock. Depending on the age, mechanical models contain either five or six rotating disks. The disks roll through a set of tiny squares that display the current amount of miles your vehicle has journeyed. In updated vehicles, digital odometers are often incorporated into mechanical displays and positioned below the speedometer.

Aside from recording the total number of miles traveled, an odometer is also an indicator of the wear and tear that a vehicle has been subjected to. Sometimes, small used car dealerships trying to make an extra buck incorporate a technique in which they roll back a mechanical odometer to give customers the impression that the car has less mileage on it. There are laws that have been established to prevent fraudulent behavior of this sort; all garages and mechanics are required to maintain thorough documentation of odometer readings anytime a vehicle is serviced.

General problems and repairs

Mechanical odometers are easily repairable if they malfunction. However, electronic odometers must be replaced if something goes wrong. The primary problem with mechanical odometers is that the dials wear out, or the gears controlling these dials become stripped. The level of difficulty involved with fixing the odometer yourself is based on the automobile’s make and model; repair procedures will differ depending on the car. Here is an example of the instructions you would follow to repair a faulty mechanical odometer in a Porsche 933:

1. Carefully disengage the speedometer from the dashboard with a covered screwdriver.
2. Pry the rubber ring from the outer edge with a flat screwdriver.
3. Once you’ve loosened it a bit with the screwdriver, you should be able to pull it out manually.
4. Undo the trim ring and four screws located in the back of the unit. Make sure you remove the delicate metal ring from the assembly’s edge with caution.
5. There is a wide post on top of the slim post of the reset button. Steady the assembly to prevent the lever from being tampered with where it connects with the drive gears.
6. Push the speedometer needle into the shaft without yanking up.
7. Turn the needle until it stops, and cautiously pull the needle up while rotating it back and forth because it is a very fragile piece.
8. Take out the two screws in the faceplate.
9. Lift up the motor. Now, the drive gear and pod in should be in view. The pod should contain a tattered or broken gear.
10. Insert a new gear in its place.
11. Complete steps one through ten in reverse to reassemble the dash. Again, handle the speedometer needle with care.
Basic maintenance

Unlike other parts of the car that are easily accessible, the odometer is an internal mechanism that should not be tampered with. You wouldn’t want to risk harming the speedometer needle simply for the sake of a senseless checkup; disrupting the odometer to inspect it for no apparent reason could easily damage it. Also, never reset the trip meter while the vehicle is in motion because it may negatively impact the odometer’s gears. It’s best to do this only when the car is parked or idle.

When New York car accidents occur and someone is badly injured as a result, the legal aftermath often involves an effort to find one of the motorists negligent. However, there are crashes that occur that are not the fault of any driver, but instead are the fault of automobile manufacturers who provided a consumer with a defective vehicle. Anyone who has been injured in a New York car accident caused by a defective automobile needs to obtain the help of New York car accident lawyers as soon as possible.

Below you will find a brief overview of the legal issues that surround the problem of defective automobiles. You will also find information regarding the challenges that can be faced by someone who attempts to hold an automobile manufacturer accountable for the harm it has inflicted on someone as a result of its negligence.

How Automobiles Can Be Defective
Automobiles can generally be found to be defective in two different ways. The first legal theory that’s often used to prove that a vehicle was defective is known as defective design. This theory was often used in years past when plaintiffs attempted to show that SUV’s were not designed properly given their tendency to roll over because of their heavy weight and their narrow wheel bases. In many situations, this theory was used successfully in attempts to recover compensation.

The other legal theory commonly used in an attempt to hold an automobile manufacturer accountable for harm done is known as defective manufacture. An example of an issue that arose in the recent past where people felt that vehicles were manufactured in a defective manner involved the Toyota cases of sudden acceleration. The basic premise of these claims was that faulty parts were used that led to sudden crashes and injuries.

Challenges Presented in Defective Automobile Lawsuits
When someone is injured or worse in a crash that was caused by a defective automobile and attempts to stand up for his or her legal rights, that consumer will encounter challenges as the process moves forward. Basically, a person in this situation will be attempting to take on an enormous corporation that has access to vast resources, to expert witnesses and to highly skilled defense attorneys. This can be a daunting face-off for any individual, as all of this professional skill will be put to work in an effort to shield defendants from liability.

How New York Car Accident Lawyers Can Help
Fortunately, a consumer who has been harmed by a defective vehicle has an opportunity to level the playing field in these situations. This can be done by obtaining the help of New York car accident lawyers who understand how to take on defense attorneys and corporations so that the truth can be brought out and justice can be obtained.

If you or someone you love has been harmed because of a defective automobile, you need to seek the help of

There are innumerable types of traffic laws and regulations that are in place in New York that deal specifically with what is required on the roads and behind the wheels of vehicles. While it may seem that some of these laws are relatively unimportant and easily ignored, the fact of the matter is that when traffic laws are broken, people are seriously injured and killed as a result. Anyone who has been harmed because of another motorist’s failure in this regard needs to obtain the help of experienced New York car accident lawyers as soon as possible.

Below you’ll find a brief overview regarding one of the most common errors that leads to New York car accidents – the failure to yield the right-of-way. You’ll also find information regarding the potential legal rights and options possessed by someone in this position as well as information regarding how you can contact New York car accident lawyers to schedule a free initial consultation if you or someone you love has been injured.

Examples of Failures to Yield the Right-of-Way
There are many different examples of failing to yield the right-of-way, and while some are more obvious than others, this mistake will always lead to a finding of fault by the motorist who does not adhere to this law. Specifically, the most common example of this failure involves merging into a different lane on a road or highway and forcing someone else to take evasive action as a result.

In addition, motorists can fail to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and bicyclists, and they can also commit this mistake if they move forward through a four-way stop when it is not his or her turn to proceed. Even what seems like the smallest errors by the offending motorist can and often does lead to disastrous results.

How New York Car Accident Lawyers Can Help
Fortunately, there are legal rights and options available to someone who is injured or to the family members of someone who is killed by a motorist who fails to yield the right-of-way. These options include the filing of a New York personal injury lawsuit or a New York wrongful death lawsuit against the party responsible for this result.

If such a claim is filed and it proves to be successful for the plaintiffs, those who have brought the actions can be awarded damages that compensate them for their losses. However, obtaining this result requires the utmost in legal skill and experience, as this type of a claim will involve dealing with insurance adjusters and perhaps defense attorneys. All of these professionals are highly skilled when it comes to obtaining a positive result for their clients and employers.

Therefore, if you or someone you love has been harmed by a negligent or reckless driver, you need to seek the help of experienced
New York car accident lawyerswho have been holding those responsible for these losses accountable for more than 40 years. Contact

Christmas is almost upon us and it is the season to be jolly, but for many of us, winter can be a miserable time of slips, trips, falls and rear end shunts. If any of these winter ills befall you, you might be glad to know how easy it is to engage the services of a personal injury lawyer.

Take auto accidents for instance. You are heading slowly down an icy road, minding your own business when all of a sudden you hear a crunch and your head snaps forward. You have been rear-ended. Join the club. You will perhaps be so bothered with the damage to your car that you will not feel any pain at first. Shock does that to you. But later, the shoulder pain and stiff neck kicks in. If you are still in pain a few days later, you need to contact a personal injury lawyer. First, you need to consult your doctor, let your insurance company about your injury then get yourself a personal injury lawyer, preferably one who specializes in automobile accidents.

It is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible after an automobile accident. This is because you do not know without medical advice just how serious your injuries are. Also, early intervention can prevent your injuries from worsening over time. This especially true if you need to receive some chiropractic treatment for some misalignment of bones, muscles and tendons caused by the automobile accident. Soft tissue damage to the neck and back is the most common effect of automobile accidents and it is very often not discovered until it is too late to link it to the automobile accident and therefore to claim any compensation. Make sure you do not miss out on that money which is due to you by contacting a personal injury law firm as soon as you need to – right after the accident so they can be involved right from the beginning when you get your first medical checks. They can help you get those checks too.

A personal injury lawyer can help you recover all the costs of this treatment, as well as payment for the physical and mental pain caused to you by the accident and any treatment which is needed. If you need time off work and therefore lose out on wages, talking to a personally injury law firm can help you recover all that money in damages.

Of course, you have a reasonable amount of time in which to report any injuries to a personal injury lawyer, but it is better to act early. You will also need to have obtained medical proof of any injuries sustained in the automobile accident so this is better to be done right away before any complications arise, any small injuries for which you might also claim heal, and before any doubt sets in that it was the auto accidents which caused this physical injury and mental trauma.

In any claim which you pursue through a personal injury law firm, you will be expected to cooperate fully and provide the evidence they need to fight your case. But they will help you. A personal injury lawyer will be totally in your corner when it comes to disagreements with the other party, negotiations and paperwork.

Yasmin Injury Lawyers
Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is a very dangerous type of birth control known to cause heart attack, stroke, and sudden death in otherwise healthy teenage girls and young women. Yasmin can have other serious side effects including liver or kidney failure and gallbladder disease so sever as to require gallbladder removal. If you, your daughter, or your wife has been harmed by taking Yasmin you may be entitled to compensation. Our Yasmin injury attorneys can help.

Yasmin Victims
Yasmin is primarily prescribed as a birth control pill, but it is also given to girls as young as 14 years old to treat acne. Yasmin is sometimes prescribed to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a very severe form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Yasmin injures and kills healthy and active young women and teenage girls in the prime of their lives.

Bayer, maker of Yasmin, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are both aware of the dangers of Yasmin, but it remains on the market even though there are safer alternatives.

Drug companies do not care about lives, they care about profits. They choose to pull dangerous drugs from the market only if they believe that the cost of defending themselves against lawsuits due to injuries and deaths caused by the drug will be higher than the profits the drug generates. Every new personal injury lawsuit filed against the maker of a dangerous drug helps swing the balance toward getting that drug off the market and preventing more injuries and deaths from occurring.

Take Action Right Away
If you have been harmed by taking Yasmin, or if you have lost a loved one to this defective drug, you may be entitled to compensation, but if you wait too long to take action you will forfeit that legal right. There is a time limit for filing your lawsuit called the statute of limitations. If you miss your deadline you will no longer be allowed to sue, no matter how much merit your case has.

Many injury victims put off taking legal action because they believe they cannot afford an attorney. You do not need to worry about that. Your initial consultation with a Yasmin injury attorney is free of charge. From there, we work on a contingency basis. You do not pay a retainer and we do not charge you by the hour. We only get paid if and when we recover compensation on your behalf.

If you believe that you or your child has been injured by Yasmin, please call our Yasmin injury attorneys . Your initial consultation with a Yasmin injury attorney is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your case, in most cases we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds. In many cases, a lawsuit must be filed before an applicable expiration date, known as a statute of limitations. Please call right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.

Illegal search and seizure is a violation of your 4th Amendment Constitutional right. We take your rights — and defending them seriously. If you think you’ve been the victim of a breach of the law, call our firm. We will fight for you.

Call to discuss your illegal search and seizure.
We offer a free consultation.

The performance of illegal search and seizure – a search without a warrant – is an extreme infringement of an individual’s privacy. Under the United States Constitution, searches must be conducted by means of a warrant. The petition for a warrant must be made with specific details about to the location, intended purpose and probable cause. Call us to determine if the law was followed in your case.

Our illegal search and seizure defense team will meticulously review what happened:

The documentation, language and reasoning that law enforcement officials used to obtain the warrant.
The police records associated with your arrest and the charges being leveled against you in association with the evidence obtained.
The police records associated with the delivery and fulfillment of the warrant including the inventory of the evidence that was produced by their efforts.
If you feel your 4th Amendment protection against illegal search and seizure has been violated, you must speak up. Talk to one of our legal representatives and let the truth come to the light. Contact our firm today. If it can be determined that authorities did breach the federal guidelines, any evidence obtained can be prohibited from admission in court.

Illegal search and seizure is a tyrannical practice that can lead to unfortunate outcomes for defendants who are unaware of their rights to refuse unwarranted searches. And the police are under no obligation to advise the targeted individuals of their investigations that they have the right to refuse such an imposition. Call us if you, your home, papers, property and your person have been subjected to an unsuspected, sudden, violent and unlawful assault.

There are times, even if there was a warrant, when a search can be brought into question. Vague reasoning, misstatements of facts and immaterial speculations can render a warrant illegitimate along with any of the evidence obtained. Call us to review the warrant you were given.

You want your case reviewed by an attorney because there are certain circumstances in which there is no need to request a formal warrant from the courts in order to conduct a search:

The search is performed in accordance with the procedures of an arrest or due to an evidential and logical suspicion that a crime is about to be committed;
The evidence that would incite or lead to an arrest is not hidden and displayed “in plain view,” and;
When the evidence of the crime would be destroyed or compromised without immediate action.
An attorney from our firm can review the circumstances of your illegal search and seizure and determine whether or not it was permissible in accordance with the exclusionary rule of good-faith exception.

Call us to discuss your illegal search and seizure.
We offer a free consultation.

No defense attorney or firm can make any guarantees about the outcome of your case. However, we can provide you with state of the art, cost effective legal counsel to help you face the charges levied against you before the courts.

A criminal appeals lawyer from our firm can pursue justice in the higher courts, when you have been wrongfully convicted or unfairly sentenced during a criminal trial. The results of the original verdict may have been devastating and disheartening, especially when you are innocent – or for any other reason you would refuse to accept the court’s decision. Don’t give up.

Call our Law Firm and let us fight for the justice that you deserve!
Regardless of the allegations and evidence against you, you are entitled to the benefit of legal counsel.

Call for criminal defense representation. We offer a free consultation.

A criminal appeals attorney can shed light on the options available to you, when you have been convicted and sentenced based upon charges for crimes that you did not commit – or a punishment you refuse to accept. We know that your initial response may be to throw your hands up and simply accept the rulings of the court. However, you need not sit idly and contemplate the ways in which you will learn to cope. Don’t let the disappointment knock the wind out of your sails. There are legal measures by which such problems can be addressed. The higher courts can be petitioned for a review of the facts that have resulted in your wrongful, unacceptable or unfair conviction.

What is a Criminal Appeal?
The task of a criminal appeals attorney is to provide the higher courts with a legal brief pertaining to the oversights, indiscretions and inconsistencies that were carried out during the course of the lower court trial. The appellate courts are comprised of a three-judge panel; it is their job to determine if any legal mistakes or misinterpretations of the law were made during the original trial. In certain courts, the panel may permit oral arguments to be heard. However, the sole purpose of the appellate panel is to review the original criminal trial record for procedural and legal errors.

A criminal appeals attorney from our firm will petition the higher courts for a review of the transcripts and evidence that led to the unjust outcome of your trial. We will provide an outline and overview of the trial documents for the appellate panel, and highlight the portions of the proceeding that we feel exemplify the measures of injustice that directly affected the fairness and accuracy of your verdict. A guilty verdict is not necessarily the correct verdict in terms of truth, degree and justice. If you are pursuing an appeal to your trial, call us today!

A criminal appeals attorney can potentially help you to:
Unlock the door to a dismissal of all of the charges against you
Receive the opportunity to plead guilty via plea bargain to the terms of a lesser charge and walk away with time served
Overturn the conviction or possibly reduce your sentence
Receive a reversal of your conviction and a noted remand to the lower courts for a new trial
Our criminal appeals attorney can explain each of the possibilities with you in full detail. No defense attorney or firm can make any guarantees about the outcome of your case. However, we can provide you with effective legal counsel to help you face the charges levied against you before the courts.

Call our firm when you are in need of a federal criminal defense team. If you have been taken into custody by national agents or arrested while on property owned by the U.S. government, your charges and proceedings will be conducted in the federal courts.

Unlike state procedures, defendants taken into custody by government agencies will face a whole different set of circumstances. For instance, bail, on the state level, is determined by a schedule (i.e., if you commit THIS crime, you must pay THIS much to get out of jail). The procedures of a federal arrest differ in that there is no bail schedule, and defendants are required to be interviewed by a Pretrial Services Officer in order to determine whether or not they are even eligible for bail.

The Pretrial Services Officer will make an investigation of:

Background
Employment history and/or status
Financial situation
Family relationships
Position within the community in which they live
Having a federal criminal defense representative to uphold your rights and fight for your innocence can be vital to securing your ability to be released on bail. The government maintains the right to hold, without bail, individuals who pose a flight risk or individuals who are determined to be too dangerous to released back into their communities while awaiting trial. It is common to be detained without the allowance of bail if involved in:

The sale and distribution of illegal weapons
Organized crimes
Gang related activities
Individuals with extensive criminal histories may also be detained without bail.
A federal criminal defense attorney may be able to help you secure your bail, or help you appeal to the District Court Judge, if your bail has been denied.

The discovery process in government courts is also quite different than that of the state courts. A United States Prosecuting Attorney, for instance, is not required to provide the statements of their witnesses to the federal criminal defense team until after the witnesses have testified before the courts. This means that, without a motion to compel discovery early on in the trial, a U.S. Prosecutor can withhold testimonial evidence until the last minute and present a bombshell disclosure for which the defendant is unprepared. We will counter these kinds of strategies with skill and forcefulness.

When To Go to Trial and When to Take a Deal
Believe it or not, deciding whether to go to trial or whether to take a deal is never an easy question to answer. The decision requires a risk assessment to determine whether going to trial actually makes sense. Many of those newly charged into the criminal justice system have the mistaken belief that the prosecutors offices are too busy to handle their case and in turn plea bargain cases because of so called court congestion. Nothing could be further from the truth! Your attorney earns good deals through preparation and aggressive representation of you, the criminal defendant.

Deals in this business are earned from the reputation of the attorney and his ability to go to trial and win. Those attorneys command the best of the deals. Deals are also earned by proper and thorough investigation and proper follow through by the attorney who may, in turn, end up going to trial because the prosecutor wants you to plead guilty as charged!

To decide whether to go to trial, or whether to explore a possible deal on a case, you first have to know what will happen (how much time you will get) if you go to trial and lose and what will happen (how much time you will get) if you accept a deal. If the percentage difference in the two is not very much, you always go to trial no matter how good or how bad the facts of the case are. This is what we mean when we tell the client we will make a risk analysis in assisting the client in coming to his or her decision as to which of these two options (plea bargain or trial) to select. We know that this sounds like a simple concept but time and again, we find out that an attorney has pleaded their clients guilty to charges that should have been decided by the jury not the prosecutor.

To determine the amount of risk is involved in your case (and therefore to help you decide whether to go to trial or accept a deal), we compare the amount of time you would get if he goes to trial and lose with how much time you will get if he accepts a deal. If there is not a really substantial difference in the amount of time that you, the client will get, the answer then is go to trial, regardless of how good or bad the facts of the case are. The real live scenarios described below illustrate how to decide what goal to set in the handling of your case, that is, whether you should aim for a settlement or a trial.

Drug Offenses
The analysis of whether to go to trial or to accept a deal in any case is difficult. The problem is frequently more dramatic in drug cases, however, because the prosecution may have facts making him or her be able to leverage you into pleading guilty. This can happen because the possible draconian results of a sentence after a jury conviction will make you too scared to go to trial.

Whether the alleged offense is a federal or state offense makes a very substantial difference in the amount of time you may receive if convicted. Look at these examples below and you will understand the need to hire experienced attorneys such as provided by our Law Firm.

Drug offenses in Federal Court: Take for example the situation where the client is charged with the typical federal drug offense – Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance. Generally in this type of case, the US Attorney has used an informant (snitch) to enter into an agreement with you, the client, (and thus, a conspiracy) to sell, for example, powdered cocaine.

This time, however, it is not local police but the DEA and FBI who set-up the client and then make the arrest after tape recording the conversation. Now it is time to see the real cruelty of the system and the mandatory minimums that may be imposed in the federal system.

Assume that client A agreed via telephone to buy 2 kilos of powder cocaine at $15,000.00 per kilo but refuses to inform against anybody (including himself) as part of the plea bargain process. Client B committed the same offense that client A did (agrees to buy 2-kilos) but agrees to inform the US Attorney as part of the plea bargaining process.

Their possible sentence ranges are described below:

A B
Conspiracy 2 Kilos: 120-months (10-years) 120-months (10-years)
Snitch Credit: ———- 60-months (5-years)
Minimum sentence 10 years 60-months (5-years)

These are real sentencing options for a federal judge. Now you can see why you need a true fighter working on your side. But the sentencing in state courts is substantially harsh also. Please consider the possible sentencing options below in deciding why you should hire an attorney who will fight for your interests.

Drug Offenses in State Court: Let’s say that the client is accused of selling an ounce of cocaine or a pound of marijuana to an undercover agent. Assume also that the sale was within 1000 feet of a school bus stop and within 2000 feet of a grade school and that when arrested, the client also had a handgun in his possession.

In this case, assume the prosecutor charges client A with delivery of a controlled substance and adds both a school zone and bus zone enhancement to the charges. The possible sentence range should convince the person to go to trial because the prosecutor has offered nothing (a frequent occurrence) as he may have as he did in charging client B with only the delivery.

A B
Delivery 15-20 months 15-20 months
Gun enhancement 36 months ————-
Bus zone 24 months ————-
School zone 24 months ————
Total time served 101 months (8 years) 17 months

Sex Offenses
In most states, a person accused of committing a single sex offense against a child under the age of 14 will, if convicted, be sentenced to a very substantial amount of prison time. There are treatment alternatives to the person who commits these offenses and if he admits this prior to trial but those alternatives are almost never available if the client goes to trial an is convicted.

The following is the result assuming person A commits a sex offense against a 12 year old child. On the left side of the column, defendant A accepts a deal but on the right, person B rejects the deal and goes to trial with the possibility that a jury will convict him.

A B
Sentence range 78 months – life 78 months – life
Deal w/treatment option: 6 months jail —————
Total jail time served: 6 months 78 months – life

This is the decision problem for the person charged with a sex offense. Factor in the possibility that the client may not have committed the offense and the inherent unfairness of the system is blatantly clear.

That is, if the client committed the offense and admits it, his downside (jail/prison time) is possibly only 6-months on this offense. If he didn’t do it and denies it by going to trial, he risks at a minimum 6 years and a maximum of life in prison if convicted!

Now you can see why you need a knowledgeable lawyer to understand and communicate to you the sentencing risks. You can also see why you need a very strong trial lawyer if you decide to fight and go to trial.

The principal to remember is this – there is only one reason to accept a deal. If you substantially benefit by the deal, consider accepting it. If you do not substantially benefit, make sure you have hired a serious criminal trial lawyer such as our firms and fight it out to the end!

The Trayvon Martin, Robert Bales and Amanda Knox cases show why the search for the truth won’t to be found in the taking of sides based solely on press reports.

Regardless of how you perceive these recent high profile cases, and whether your information comes from this side or that, the true resolution of these cases should come within the criminal justice system. As criminal defense attorneys who have defended high-profile clients, we are very familiar with this phenomenon of “trial by media.”

If you have been following along, and it would be hard not to with the volumes of media attention on these high profile cases, the truth of the guilt or innocence under the law may have little to do with “what you have heard.” One of the classic cases of “trial by media” is the Amanda Knox case. If you only read the Italian press or the British tabloids (and even many US outlets) you could have rightfully assumed that Knox and her Italian boyfriend were guilty of something.

Except, the crime from its first report didn’t make any sense. A ritual killing by a near stranger – and allegedly one woman sexually assaulting another – with no other motive and bad evidence that eventually the Italian courts agreed just didn’t add up. “Facts” published in the tabloids turned out to be in error, made up, or otherwise suspect. After years of incarceration Knox and Sollecito were freed. I

Our Law Firm PLLC has defended many who if you just relied on the newspaper reports would almost certainly be guilty. But courts are not newspapers or television stations. Aggressive representation by a criminal defense attorney, the rules of evidence and a judge frequently return a different result. This should not be a surprise. Our court system tries to operate outside the public arena. Facts must be proved and not just asserted. The accused are not guilty just because they have been accused.

In the Robert Bales case (the soldier excused of a heinous mass murder of Afghani civilians) the geo-political implications have had press reports wildly swinging from portraying the American as a mass murderer or a traumatized war veteran in a free-fire zone. It would be hard not to stumble over one of the thousands of stories on this case but what will actually be allowed in court (and a military court at that)?

The Trayvon Martin case is the case where the furor in the press and a constant stream of new and unverified information creates a soup that only a good judge and competent criminal lawyers will be able to sift through and resolve. Indeed it seems that no one can wait for the evidence to come in. In just a period of a few days (or a few minutes) the facts of the case would have you believe the case is anything from a justified shooting to a cold-blooded murder. Yes, the media attention was valuable and responsible for bringing scrutiny to an injustice but what will become of any future prosecution?

Both sides of the tragic case have an army of representatives and spokespeople and reams of paper with talking points. Leaks are strategically placed by some parties to defend actions or bolster position. Public opinion, that unsummoned jury of citizens, is thrown back and forth on a sea of supposed facts.

A criminal defense lawyer looks at this in a different way. First, in one of these trial by media cases a good criminal defense lawyer will know that a judge and a jury and the rules of evidence will restrict the blatant speculation and unprofessional sleuthing of the facts. Second, the judge should seriously restrict what the jury may consider under the rules of law. The past of an accused and certainly of the victim will not come into play for the titillation of the jury.

Our Law Firm has run into this issue several times when press reports paint a client in a particular manner, regardless of what the facts of the case maybe. Also a fundamental misunderstanding of how the criminal justice system works and what are the Constitutional protections afforded the accused. The right to a fair and speedy trial and the right to appeal a conviction which may be in error do not operate on the 24 hour news cycle.

Our Law Firm has a long impressive record. We have practiced in the arena of criminal defense law or over twenty years. We are also certified to practice in federal courts and in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers
Injuries occurring on another person’s property, such as slips, trips and falls, are quite common. Often, these injuries result from negligence on the part of the property owner or occupier. You may be able to file a claim against the property or manager of a property if negligence resulted in an injury to you.

Slip and fall accidents, are complex and often difficult to prove. It is essential that your legal representation have a strong understanding of fact-specific laws regarding the various types of incidents that result in slip and fall liability. These laws are often in flux, so ongoing study is required to stay on top of them.

In many states, simply owning a property does not make one liable for injuries that occur on that property. For there to be liability, there must be some kind of negligence. It is necessary to understand the difference between the owner, the occupier, and their relative liability. It is also necessary to understand the difference between the types of people who may be on a property: invitees, licensees, and trespassers. These factors all influence the degree of responsibility owed by the owner or occupier in a slip and fall case.

We understand these factors and will go beyond the obvious to find the person responsible for the negligence that caused you to slip, fall and injure yourself. Call an experienced slip and fall lawyer today for a case evaluation.

Auto Accident Law

LEGAL and INSURANCE SIDE: The legal side of an auto accident case is many times more complicated than the medical side. Almost all auto accidents involve some sort of car insurance. It is important to know how the insurance industry works. When you buy car insurance you buy it from an insurance agent. Insurance companies spend millions of dollars in advertising trying to convince you that they can do anything and everything for you if you are involved in an accident or a disaster. They lead you to believe that your insurance agent, who sells you the insurance, who you meet in person or by telephone or who may even be a friend, deals with all the circumstances of an accident. I am sure you have heard the terms that “you are in good hands” or “like a good neighbor” etc. The truth of the matter is, the insurance agent that you buy the insurance from, has nothing to do with the settlement of an insurance claim.

INSURANCE: Once you have been involved in an automobile accident the accident is turned over to an insurance adjuster who works for your own company or for the other company involved in the accident. These adjuster’s sole purpose is to save the insurance companies money. You have never met these people, dealt with these people or in anyway know these people. This is where the frustration begins. I will try to take you step by step of the elements that are involved next.

FAULT: The first thing that will need to be determined is “who is at fault” or the “liable party”. This is the most important factor at the beginning of an insurance settlement. If you are proven to be at fault or even if you share 50/50 of the liability you will not be entitled to any compensation for injuries. And believe me, what is said at the initial scene of the accident will change many times before it goes to court or arbitration. Without witnesses, it sometimes becomes impossible to determine liability. That being established, the next most painful factor is the property damage.

PIP or MED PAY: Whether you are at fault or not, many policies have the portion called PIP or Med Pay that pays for reasonable medical expenses that you have incurred as a result of the accident. This protects you from unexpected medical bills that are the result of an automobile accident. They are supposed to take care of these expenses in a timely fashion. If it is determined that the accident is not your fault but rather the fault of a 3rd party, then your insurance company will be reimbursed for those expenses that they have paid out on your behalf, when you settle your claim at a later date. This protects you from having to deal with doctor expenses up to certain limits, generally $10,000 is the limit per person.

WAGE LOSS: If you have been injured in an accident and are unable to work, as established by a medical professional, you are entitled to be reimbursed for wages lost up to a maximum amount per month. Your “Medical Professional” will give you a disability slip to inform your employer that you are unable to work and until such time as he/she determine that you are able to physically return to either light or regular duty you are entitled to compensation. A “Legal Professional” can advise and/or assist you in obtaining those wages throughout the course of your treatment and recovery period.

PROPERTY DAMAGE: If your car is totaled / how much is it worth? I have yet to see a case where the owner and adjuster had the same figure in mind. Secondly, in the property damage, if it is not totaled, what estimate, what auto-body company, will be used in fixing the automobile. Will they use original parts or will they use after-market parts? For many years, insurance companies have almost forced auto body companies to use after-market parts. Recently, State Farm Insurance, lost a 1.2 billion dollar suit, over just this issue. Just because you paid $6000 for a used car 2 weeks ago and insured it for that, and then it was totaled, don’t think for a minute that it is worth $6000 when it is totaled.

TOWING: If the car is immovable from the scene, the issue of towing and who pays that bill, is the next factor. You may be presented with the bill, for towing and storage, which may add up to more than the value of the vehicle.

AUTO-BODY SHOPS: You have an option in many cases, to take your car to several body shops and settle with the insurance company without having to repair your car. In other cases, the auto-body shop will be paid directly from the insurance company. In most states, the law requires that your car be in the same condition, after the repair as it was prior to the accident. This is a very subjective issue and can cause a dispute immediately between you and your insurance carrier.

PERSONAL ITEMS LOST OR DESTROYED: You are entitled to replacement or repair of your personal items.

RENTAL CAR: If your car is damaged or un-drivable it may necessitate your need for a rental car. Each policy is written differently, depending on liability of the accident, you may or may not be reimbursed for the rental car.

TOTALED VEHICLE: One issue that comes up a great deal is “When is a car totaled?” Most of the insurance companies use the 70% rule. If it costs more than 70% of the cars value, they will total it. “Diminution” in value, is a term the insurance companies use when assessing a value to an automobile. They may go to an outside source, such as the Kelly Blue Book, to determine what they consider to be a “fair market value”. In most cases, this leads to great argument and the beginning of stress for the car accident victim.

WHEN YOU NEED AN ATTORNEY: Many times it is possible that a competent individual can settle their own insurance claim. However, there are also many times and several compelling reasons why a legal professional is important for a successful claim. Even if up to this point you felt that you could handle your own claim but now are finding that you have many unanswered questions, it is not too late to get the help you need from a trained professional.

SELECTING AN ATTORNEY: It is important to choose the right attorney. This should be
someone who has experience in and specializes in handling “Personal Injury Claims”. Just like
seeing a surgeon when you need surgery, or a dentist when you have a toothache, you need to seek out an attorney that has experience in “Automobile Accident Cases” not a criminal or divorce lawyer. They should review your case with you, during a free consultation, and openly discuss the legalities of your claim and if you have a good chance for a successful case.

INJURIES: If you were hurt in the accident and suffered from injuries sustained at that time
you could need the support of a legal professional. They can help you to manage your medical care, your billings and the opening of the insurance portion of your own policy (PIP or Med Pay) to be sure that the bills are paid as they are incurred rather that simply accumulating until such time as you settle your claim.

IF YOU HAVE NO INSURANCE COVERAGE OF YOUR OWN: Many people think if they have no insurance coverage themselves they cannot open a claim. They think that they cannot get treatment for injuries they have sustained or receive compensation for “pain and suffering” that they have incurred. That is not true. A good legal professional can examine the circumstances about the accident and help you with your options. Identifying the “at fault party” and their insurance company is generally the first step to determining your rights and protecting your interests.

IF THE OTHER PARTY HAS NO INSURANCE and is at fault: Many times it is difficult to find out information about the responsible parties financial assets. An attorney is much more experienced in these types of situations and can help you determine the options available to you. This would be by either seeking a judgment and/or lien against that individual or by filing a “Uninsured Motorist Claim” against your own company for the damages and/or injuries you have sustained.

SIGNING FORMS AND RELEASE OF INFORMATION: There are many types of forms that insurance companies require be filled out and signed by you to either open a PIP/Med pay claim, a property damage claim, a wage loss claim, a medical release, a general release etc. Many times it can be confusing on which forms a person should or should not sign. The Legal Professional can review these forms and advise you.

OTHER QUESTIONS: Many other types of situations and/or questions can be answered by a “Legal Professional” in your area.

SETTLING YOUR CLAIM: When you are finished with your medical care and reached a point of being ready to settle your claim, a “Legal Professional” in your area can be your best advocate. They can prepare a demand and claim for settlement for the pain and suffering that you have experienced as a result of your motor vehicle accident. They can help you tie up all the loose ends with the medical providers, wage loss reimbursement, property damage, and help you to get the settlement you deserve.
