Avoid Social Media Posting During A Claim
At Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie, a personal injury law firm in Newport Beach, CA, we recently represented a client who was injured in a motor vehicle accident and sustained an injury to his back. Our client was an avid cyclist, who regularly enjoyed hiking and other outdoor activities, but he was unable to work for an extended period and had many months of medical care. Unfortunately, he did not make a full recovery from his back injury, and he claimed he was unable to participate in previous and normal outdoor activities.
This client’s case did not settle outside the courts, so our experienced attorneys filed a lawsuit against the adverse party. During litigation the defense counsel, on behalf of the insurance company, did a thorough investigation of our client.

San Clemente to Improve Conditions for Cyclists
Emulating Denver, Long Beach, and other bicycle-friendly cities, San Clemente is developing a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan to improve conditions for those utilizing streets and sidewalks for walking and cycling, reported the Orange County Register. Officials from the city rode along for a tour of the measures Long Beach has implemented in recent years to make cycling safer and more convenient, such as allocating one of the three lanes on a street for riding, adding more bike lanes, racks, and corals, and creating bike-share programs for city employees.
