What Drivers Should Learn From the Tiger Wood’s Accident

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on March 11, 2021

With more people working from home there are fewer vehicles on the freeways and city streets.  However, due to the lack of normal traffic, we are seeing higher speeds resulting in crashes with more property damage and more severe injuries. As always, when traveling on public roads, obey all posted speed limits and be watchful of those who are speeding. NEVER try to minimize the speed of cars around you by intentionally placing your vehicle in their way. Just move away and allow them to go their way. You will be safer in the long run.

You may be stunned by the sheer violence of the collision and even more disoriented if you suffered a serious injury, such as a head wound.

Following a car accident, every driver involved is required to make sure the other drivers are safe, contact the police, and share their driver’s license information with each other.

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on December 28, 2020

Post Image

Since many big rigs travel hundreds of miles in a single trip while towing thousands upon thousands of pounds of goods, it is no wonder that these vehicles need constant maintenance and repairs. While a truck’s tires, brakes, and engines are often the top priority, one other key part that should be inspected is the truck’s hitch. This unique part allows a truck to safely pull a fully-loaded trailer across the country, but when a hitch is damaged or faulty, it can also be the cause of serious accidents.

Suffering Nerve Pain After a Spinal Cord Injury?

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on November 30, 2020

Post Image

We often forget how many of our day-to-day activities rely on having a healthy spine until said spine is badly damaged. Even from minor trauma, a spinal cord injury can make it difficult to sleep comfortably, play with your kids, or perform well at your job without some level of pain. With more serious injuries, that pain can be far more debilitating and last for years, if not your entire life.

What Is Loss of Enjoyment?

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on November 25, 2020

Post Image

If you have been in an accident, your biggest concerns are getting your medical bills covered in an insurance claim. However, after doing some research and reading up on personal injury or auto accident claims, you may have discovered that you can recover more than just your medical bills. In the state of California, victims can pursue both the financial costs of an accident, or economic damages, and the personal costs, or non-economic damages. Sadly, many accident victims neglect to include the personal costs of an accident, which can include the loss of enjoyment of life.
