Autumn Food-Delivery Drivers: Premises Liability and Settlement Options

Posted by on Sep 19, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Autumn Food-Delivery Drivers: Premises Liability and Settlement Options

Food-delivery drivers will often spend a majority of their shift on the road. Along with driving on the main roads, a lot of parking and car operations will take place on personal property. When customers order food, they are assuming the responsibility for anyone coming to their home to deliver food. When delivering food in autumn, you must deal with darker nights and other road hazards that may cause potential problems. If a car accident or personal injury has occurred, then you may seek a settlement from the property owner. By breaking down different aspects of a case, you can determine the liability and seek legal help to properly move forward. Every situation is different, and this is why it’s important to understand your options for a settlement if you’ve been injured while delivering food. Driveway Conditions The condition of a driveway can make a huge difference in how your vehicle is able to park and pull up to property. For example, if a driveway is not properly lit, it may be hard to see boundaries or specific parking areas. This can easily cause your vehicle to crash or hit something and cause an injury. In the fall, the days get shorter, and this often means that dinner-food deliveries come just after darkness falls. When the property owners do not offer a safe place for visitors, this is typically referred to as premises liability. An attorney will use photo and video evidence to showcase the driveway hazards that were present at the time of your injury. This can help prove premises liability and showcase negligence from the homeowners. Along with poor lighting, other driveway conditions like potholes, objects, and overcrowded areas can lead to potential accidents and injuries. All of these elements can be looked at by an attorney to help build evidence for a case. Autumn Weather Conditions The autumn season can bring a lot of unique weather conditions. Windy days, falling leaves, and rain showers are just a few of the weather elements that can create hazards on property. As you pull onto property to deliver food, clumps of leaves can easily create a driving hazard along with a walking hazard. Improper removal of the leaves can be the main cause of injuries in these cases. As you carry food to the front door of a home, your focus on the items can make it easy to miss dangerous spots of wet leaves. An attorney can help showcase negligence on the part of the homeowner. If the leaves were properly removed, then dangerous situations may not have occurred through either walking or driving on the property. Along with leaves, other weather hazards may include large branches or sticks that have fallen off of trees. If you’re parked in the driveway, a falling branch can easily cause injuries, along with damage to the vehicle. An attorney can help determine the condition of the tree and whether more could have been done to help prevent the tree from causing damage. Ordering Notes When food is delivered to a home, it’s important for the home owner to provide details and instructions for specific elements of their property. This can easily be done through note sections provided on many online food orders. It can also be done when orders are placed...

Working For The Weekend: Injuries, Settlements, & Considerations For Your Days Off

Posted by on Aug 26, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Working For The Weekend: Injuries, Settlements, & Considerations For Your Days Off

Suffering through a personal injury can result in the loss of income and the ability to work. Along with your working days, you must also consider the losses that you suffer during your days off. It may not seem like a lot on the surface, but losing out on weekend hours can result in a loss for your quality of life along with a number of financial expenses. As you consult with a personal injury attorney and start planning your case, it’s important to consider your days off and the ways your weekends have changed since the injury. Browse through to see how different weekend elements can enhance your case and allow you to get a settlement that you deserve. Leagues & Clubs During your days off, it may be common to be a part of community leagues or clubs. This includes sports leagues like bowling or volleyball. You may also be involved in a bird watching or quilting club. As a member of these leagues and clubs, you may have had membership or seasonal fees that you paid. If your injuries prevent you from participating in these clubs, then you may have wasted money on a variety of fees that you paid to joined. If this is the case, then you should seek reimbursement for those costs through the settlement case. Your lawyer can use receipts and sign-up forms as pieces of evidence during the case. As you transition back into these activities, there may be extra equipment that you need to participate again. For example, you may need a wrist support for a volleyball league. Any of these extra equipment costs can be included in your case. Extra Weekend Income Even during days off, many people choose different ways to make a little extra income. For example, if you’re a construction worker, you may have made weekend money doing odd-jobs and side projects. You may also have made extra income by organizing yard sales or working at community events like craft sales. As you move forward with your settlement case, all of your income should be accounted for. Use pay stubs and tax filings to help showcase your income amounts. This can make a big difference in your compensation and will help you get back the money that you have potentially lost due to your injuries. Injury Transportation Services Some injuries may be so severe that you cannot properly drive a vehicle on your own. Spending all of your weekends at home can become tedious and impact your quality of life. As you heal through the injuries, you may choose different transportation services to get your around on weekends. For example, you may hire a taxi service for various trips. All of the costs from a taxi service can be included in your settlement case. Additional forms of transportation may include local buses, shuttle services, or paid rides from family and friends. Keeping track of the mileage and costs that you have spent can really help your settlement case. When arriving at a location, you may use a wheelchair rental or purchase nobility equipment like a cane to get around. Any of the prices that you pay can become a part of your settlement. The extra spending allows you to enjoy the same weekend outings that you...

How To Get Complete And Accurate Medical Records To Support A Personal Injury Claim In Maine

Posted by on Aug 10, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on How To Get Complete And Accurate Medical Records To Support A Personal Injury Claim In Maine

Your medical records are often the crux of your personal injury lawsuit. They contain the information needed to support your case. Getting accurate and detailed medical reports isn’t always easy. While all states are required to provide you with medical records on request, the procedure for requesting them and the mandatory timeline your medical professionals must follow are set by your state. If you live in the state of Maine and need to access your medical records for your personal injury suit, there are some things you should know. Locating Medical Records If you have visited more than one doctor or medical facility for ailments connected to your injury, you will need to track down all the records. Many doctor’s offices and medical facilities in Maine are connected via the HealthInfoNet project, which allows you or your medical care professional to access your medical records from multiple medical sources; however, not all offices and medical facilities are currently part of the project. You may need to contact medical offices or medical facilities for your records if they are not included in the HealthInfoNet system. Some records from non-participating facilities, such as lab tests or x-rays, may be sent  to your primary care provider, but this typically only occurs if they ordered the tests. If you go to the emergency room for treatment, those records may not be automatically sent to your doctor. Make a list of all medical facilities you have visited, including counselors or psychological services, so that you can make a formal request for all your records.  Requesting Medical Records The State of Maine requires a written request for your medical records. While some doctor’s offices and medical facilities will accept a form letter that is signed and dated by you, many require you to fill out a medical release form to receive a copy of your own records. This typically must be done in person, so be prepared to visit the office to request your medical records. You will need to access your records and give them to your attorney, as the doctor’s office cannot release your medical records to your attorney. According to Maine Revised Statutes Title 22 §1711-B, your doctor must release your records to you in a “reasonable” amount of time. While reasonable time is often interpreted as 30 days, the law does not state a specific time frame. You can access your medical records contained in the HealthInfoNet system via a password issued by your medical facility. Cost of Medical Records Physician’s offices and medical facilities may charge a reasonable rate for copying your medical records. According to the National Organization of Social Security Claimant’s Representatives, medical offices and facilities in Maine can charge up to $5 for the first page and 45 cents per additional page with a maximum charge of $250 for copies of your entire medical records. If they mail them to you, they can charge you the actual postage rates. Many offices do not charge for copies of your medical records, unless the records are lengthy and would require extensive time for personnel to copy them. Ask about the cost of accessing your medical records at the time of your request to avoid any unpleasant surprises. Incomplete or Erroneous Records According to the Maine Revised Statutes Title 22 §1711-B, 3A,...

Proving A Sidewalk Is Defective: Four Types Of Evidence You Need To Consider

Posted by on Jun 21, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Proving A Sidewalk Is Defective: Four Types Of Evidence You Need To Consider

If you suffer a serious injury after a slip and fall accident on a sidewalk, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the person or organization responsible. To prove that the property owner is liable for your injuries, you will need to show that the sidewalk was defective in some way. Although every case is different, there are several types of evidence that could support your claim. Here are four of them. Property surveys To prove that a property owner is negligent, you’ll need to know who that person or organization is. Don’t assume that this information is obvious. In some cases, you may need to go to some lengths to establish who is responsible for the stretch of sidewalk concerned. What’s more, the type of owner can materially impact your chances of success. For example, it’s often easier to hold a private property owner to account than a municipality or government department. Private property owners are normally responsible for relatively small areas, so the law generally says that they should find it easier to look after defects. Conversely, a municipality may have to care for thousands of kilometers of sidewalk, so their responsibilities are sometimes less comprehensive. Refer to your local property tax department to find details of the property boundaries that affect the sidewalk where you suffered an injury. For a nominal fee, a property tax clerk can issue you with a report that will show the exact boundaries. In turn, this can help you and your lawyer confirm who to file the lawsuit against. Witness statements Even if a sidewalk is obviously hazardous when you slip and fall, by the time the case comes to court, the owner may have repaired the damage. In these cases, you may find it difficult to prove the details of the original defect. As such, a personal injury attorney will often look for a witness statement. A witness statement is a useful way to corroborate your evidence. An impartial third-party’s description of the sidewalk and what happened will often support your claim. A witness statement is also a particularly useful way to confirm what you were doing. In some cases, the defendant may allege that your actions contributed to the accident. A witness can help you prove this was not the case. Precise measurements There is a fair degree of subjectivity when it comes to defining what is hazardous, so it’s always useful to take measurements of certain defects to help support your claim. For example, a cracked or raised paving slab may present a serious trip hazard. By recording the height of the raised slab or the depth of the crack, you can present the court with objective evidence that the sidewalk was hazardous. Measurements like this are particularly useful in states or cities where a trivial doctrine applies. A trivial doctrine applies when the law considers a defect too trivial to present a hazard. For example, in New York, the trivial doctrine says that a defect is not actionable unless it is greater than four inches. As such, a measurement can often help you immediately show the court that the defect is not trivial. If not, the court may automatically dismiss the case. Photographs Photographic evidence of a defective sidewalk is often a powerful way to...

5 Reasons Why You Should Consult With An Attorney After Being Injured In A Motorcycle Accident

Posted by on Jun 2, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on 5 Reasons Why You Should Consult With An Attorney After Being Injured In A Motorcycle Accident

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you may be unsure whether you should hire an attorney to represent you. If you suffered very minor injuries and the insurance company of the person who was at fault in your accident is offering adequate compensation, you may not need to hire a lawyer. However, you should still consider arranging a short consultation with a lawyer. There are several ways a lawyer can help you even during a brief consultation.  An Attorney Will Tell You Which Questions You Should Expect From Insurance Companies After a motorcycle accident, it is common for either your insurance company or the insurance company of the other party involved to call you. While you do have to cooperate with your own insurance company, you do not have to cooperate with the opposing driver’s insurance company. They may offer you a settlement or they may ask you leading questions about the accident in order to gain more information about the settlement. However, they may use what you say during these early interviews against you if you decide not to take their settlement offer.  During a consultation, a lawyer can advise you about what to say to insurance companies and which questions to answer when the insurance companies call you.  An Attorney Can Help You Recognize the Proper Amount You Should Be Compensated  Often, the first settlement offer by an insurance company will be much less than what your case is worth. An experienced lawyer will be able to assess your case and inform you what type of settlement you could expect if you go to court and what type of settlement you should expect if you settle out of court. This will help you determine when you should accept a settlement offer from an insurance company.  An Attorney Can Help You Determine Who Is Liable For Your Injuries  While it may seem obvious that the other driver is at fault for your accident, there may be other parties who are liable for your accident. For example, if your motorcycle wobbled out of control when you were driving at a high speed, the manufacturer may be held responsible for your accident. Or if a piece of trash flew off a vehicle and caused your accident, the owner of that vehicle may also be found responsible. During a consultation, a lawyer can help you assess whether there are multiple negligent parties and whether you should pursue compensation from multiple sources.  An Attorney Can Advise You On Whether Or Not You Should Create a Civil Case Against Those Liable for Your Injuries  Sometimes, it will be costly and time-consuming to take a case to court. During an initial consultation, a lawyer can determine whether you have a good chance of winning a court case and whether the compensation from the court case would make creating a case worthwhile for you. Sometimes, it will be better for you to take a settlement from an insurance company rather than try to pursue higher compensations in court.  An Attorney Can Advise You About Immediate Actions You Should Take If You Want the Option to Pursue a Civil Case In the Future  In most states, you do not have to file a civil case against the liable party immediately. You may actually have...

Determining Liability When You Hit Livestock With Your Car And The Accident Causes Damages Or Injuries

Posted by on May 24, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Determining Liability When You Hit Livestock With Your Car And The Accident Causes Damages Or Injuries

Running into cattle or other livestock when you are driving can cause serious damage to your car and injuries to you as well as to the passengers inside. If you have recently incurred damage or been injured in a car accident involving someone else’s livestock, you may be wondering if the owner is liable for your injuries. There are several elements you need to consider: 1. Did the owner intend for their livestock to be in the road? In many cases, in order to prove that the owner was liable, you have to prove that he or she intended for the livestock to be in the road. The letter of the law on this issue varies from place to place. In particular, in some areas, the owner must actually put his or her livestock in the road, in order to show intent and be held responsible for the crash. In other cases, failure to mend fences can constitute negligence on the owner’s part. 2. Does your state have fence in or fence out laws? The laws regarding fences in your area are also extremely important when determining if the livestock owner is responsible. In most parts of the country, livestock owners are responsible for fencing in their cattle. This means that the burden to keep the livestock contained is on the owner. However, other states or rural parts of some states such as Colorado have fence out laws. This means that if people do not want cattle on their property, they need to fence them out, and it shifts the burden for well maintained fencing away from the livestock owner. As a result, it can be hard to hold these owners liable based on a broken fence. 3. Was someone driving the cattle where or when they are not legally allowed to? In some cases, you don’t need to focus on fencing issues. Rather, you can focus on the actions of the person driving the livestock. In many rural areas, livestock owners commonly drive their cattle to new pastures along roads, but there are laws about which roads owners can use and when they can use them. For example, in Utah, you are not legally allowed to drive cattle along highways around sunrise or sunset. If the owner was taking illegal actions when you hit the livestock, you may be able to hold him or her liable for your injuries, damages or expenses. 4. Was the accident caused by a repeated problem? In some cases, when trying to prove negligence, lawyers will argue that the issue was repeatedly a problem. For example, imagine you are trying to hold someone liable for the damages that occurred when you hit their bull with your car, and because you live in a fence-in state, your lawyer is arguing that broken fences constitute negligence. In turn, their attorney argues that the owner was not aware that the fence was in a state of disrepair. However, your attorney can counter that argument by arguing that this was a repeated issue. To illustrate, they may argue that the livestock were commonly on that section of the road and that the owner has been warned about his or her fencing issues in the past. 5. Were you following all of the laws? If the owner is...

What You Can Do To Prevent Your Dog From Biting Someone

Posted by on Apr 11, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on What You Can Do To Prevent Your Dog From Biting Someone

If you have purchased your first dog, or are about to, it is important that you take precautions to ensure that your dog does not bite anyway. If your dog bites someone, you could be sued and the person who was bit and injured could receive compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. Selecting the breed carefully, training, and keeping your dog on a leash and maintaining control while you are out in public are a few well-known ways that you can prevent your dog from biting people. However, there are a few lesser known ways as well. Learning about these techniques and using them can help you reduce your chances of your dog biting someone and finding yourself involved in a personal injury dog bite claim. Spay or Neuter Your Dog There are many benefits to spaying and neutering a dog. The biggest benefit is that your dog can no longer reproduce, so you don’t have to worry about puppies. However, spaying and neutering also significantly reduces hormone levels, helping to curb hormone-induced aggression. A dog that is less aggressive is less likely to bite someone, so spaying or neutering your pet is a great first step to reducing the likelihood of him or her lashing out at someone unexpectedly. Take Your Dog to the Vet if He is Acting Aggressively or Erratically If your dog is sick or something is wrong, he may begin to act aggressively or erratically. Unfortunately, many pet owners think that a sudden shift in mood may be a behavioral issue. As such, they don’t get the animal the care he may need. Even worse, many pet owners try to change up the routine to help this perceived behavioral issue. They may take the dog on a walk to get some exercise or a dog park to play. The animal is already in a bad mood, isn’t feeling well and may now find themselves surrounded by strangers, which sets the stage for a possible dog bite. As such, it is important to pay close attention to your dog’s behavior and seek treatment from a vet if the dog is exhibiting signs of aggression. Taking care of any health problems or injuries may be a sudden end to the sudden onset of aggressive or erratic behavior. Follow the Cues Your Dog Gives You Training and socializing your pet from an early age can help them get used to being around people and other dogs. This can help prevent a lot of dog bites. However, it won’t prevent them all. For unknown reasons, some dogs just don’t like certain people or may feel uncomfortable or threatened in different situations. This puts the dog on guard and may cause them to bite when they normally wouldn’t. As such, it is important to pay attention to and follow the cues that your dog is giving you. If your dog is growling at someone, is trying to hide or retreat, is showing the white of her eyes, has a tense jaw or is holding her tail low, she may be uncomfortable in the situation or around the person you are with. In such situations, it is important not to try to force interaction. Instead, keep your dog comfortable until you are able to exit...

4 Things To Understand About States That Practice No Fault Auto Insurance

Posted by on Mar 30, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on 4 Things To Understand About States That Practice No Fault Auto Insurance

There are currently 12 states in the United States that operate with no fault insurance laws. If you live in Florida, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Hawaii, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Dakota or Utah, it is important that you familiarize yourself with the basics of no fault auto insurance and the specifics of your state and insurance policy. The basic premise behind no fault laws is that if you have minor injuries from an accident, your insurance will cover the injuries in order to prevent unnecessary lawsuits and delays in payment. However, more serious injuries may still result in a liability claim, in which case you may need the help of a lawyer.  No Fault States May Have Verbal or Monetary No Fault Limits In most states that have no fault laws, once the seriousness of your injuries reaches a certain threshold, you are eligible to take actions against the person whose fault the accident was. This can include submitting a liability claim to their insurance or suing the driver directly if they are uninsured or under-insured. The limits that you must reach are set by the state and are either verbal or monetary. For example, some states require that your injuries meet certain descriptive thresholds in order to be deemed serious enough to engage liability insurance while other states simply have a monetary value you must reach.  If you are close to reaching the verbal or monetary limits set by the state, you may want to discuss your case with a lawyer to determine if there is a possibility for engaging liability insurance.  No Fault Does Not Cover Pain and Suffering Or Other Non-Physical Harm No fault insurance policies, often called PIP (Personal Injury Protection) do not usually pay for pain and suffering or other psychological issues related to the accident. They also may not cover lost wages or opportunities. This means that if you do not reach the threshold in your state, you will likely only be compensated for your physical injuries.  However, once you reach the threshold and can make liability claims, you can also be compensated for psychological and social losses. For this reason, it is important to thoroughly document the extent of your suffering due to the accident in every sphere of life.  Most Insurance Policies Work Under the Laws of the State Where the Accident Took Place Most insurance policies are set up so that they automatically adjust to the laws of the state where you are driving. For example, if you are insured in California you most likely do not have PIP. However, if you drive into Utah and get into an accident, your insurance will likely cover your injuries as if it were a no fault policy. This also applies to instances when the minimum coverage in your home state is less than the minimum coverage in a state you are driving in temporarily.  However, if you get in a serious accident in a no fault state when you come from a non-no fault state, you should talk with a lawyer about your options for getting your medical bills paid.  In Some States Personal Injury Protection Will Extend to Pedestrians and Cyclists  If you are in an accident in a no fault state and both drivers are injured, it...

Disability Claims For Short Bowel Syndrome: What You Need To Know About Your Disability Hearing

Posted by on Feb 18, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Disability Claims For Short Bowel Syndrome: What You Need To Know About Your Disability Hearing

Between 10,000 and 20,000 people in the United States suffer with short bowel syndrome. This condition can lead to debilitating symptoms that make everyday life difficult, so people with the condition may need to file a disability claim. Find out why you may need to attend a disability hearing as part of your claim, and learn more about the steps you can take to increase your chances of success. SBS and disability insurance If a surgeon has to remove a large part of the small intestine, life can become very difficult, and you may find it almost impossible to hold down a job. Without an intact small intestine, your body may struggle to absorb water, vitamins and nutrients, which can lead to symptoms like bloating, cramping, weakness and (eventually) malnutrition. Other complications like peptic ulcers and kidney stones may also arise because of SBS. All of these symptoms may prompt you to seek disability because you can’t keep working. In the United States, the Social Security Administration potentially covers claims for SBS. Indeed, within the list of eligible impairments, the SSA lists SBS separately. However, a diagnosis of SBS alone may not automatically entitle you to claim disability. According to the SSA, to qualify for automatic cover, you must give evidence that a surgeon has removed more than one-half of the small intestine. You must also show that you are now entirely dependent on a special form of nutrition administered via a catheter. However, if you don’t meet these specific criteria, you can still file a claim for benefits. Nonetheless, to receive those benefits, the SSA will normally ask you to attend a disability hearing to explain why you need the support. What to expect from a disability hearing A social security hearing normally only lasts up to an hour, and the session is normally quite informal. However, you will still need to answer questions from a judge, whose aim is to make sure your application is genuine. Other people will sit in the session, and you can ask expert witnesses to attend on your behalf. You must tell the truth during the hearing. Indeed, like a normal court case, a court reporter will swear you in. Crucially, you must also explain why your symptoms make it hard for you to work. Answering questions about your SBS It’s important to explain exactly how your symptoms make your life difficult. For example, bloating and cramping may not sound serious enough to justify time off work, so you would need to explain how these symptoms impair your mobility and make it difficult to stay away from a bathroom for any lengthy period. Vomiting is a common symptom of SBS, and some people with the condition vomit regularly throughout the day. In serious cases, you would need to explain how many times per day you vomit and how this makes it difficult to carry out normal tasks at work. Similarly, the lethargy, dizziness and weakness that arise from your SBS may mean you cannot safely work in certain environments. It’s important not to exaggerate, but you should also include all relevant details. For example, don’t just tell the judge you “vomit all day.” Instead, tell the judge that you vomit between 6 and 9 times and day. Some complications from SBS may entitle you...

Are You At Risk Of An Accident In A Road Work Zone?

Posted by on Jan 22, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Are You At Risk Of An Accident In A Road Work Zone?

Sometimes it seems that everywhere you go you encounter a road that is under construction. These areas normally have big signs, road barrels, and lanes shut down. This often leads to additional road congestion and a change in road patterns. Road construction or work zones, can put you at risk of having an accident. Understanding this risk, as well as how to avoid it, may help you remain safe the next time you enter a work zone.  The Risks Work Zones Pose Work zones can be very dangerous places. Based on 2010 statistics, someone was injured in a work zone approximately every 14 minutes throughout the day. This resulted in approximately 104 people being injured each and every day, or 37,476 injuries for that particular year. These injuries were a result of 87,606 reported crashes that took place in work zone areas. While it may be an easy assumption that the majority of these accidents and injuries took place at night, this is not the case. About 70% of these took place 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The most common types of accidents in work zones included: Sideswipe Collisions Fix-Objects Collisions Rear End Collisions Warning Equipment Collisions Construction Equipment Collisions Causes of Construction Zone Accidents These accidents could be caused by a wide variety of things that could be directly contributed to the companies performing the work. Some of the most common are: Distracting signage Poorly marked lanes Misplaced barrels Poor lighting Road debris Uneven pavement Sudden lane shifts Road machinery In addition to these items there are other conditions that may be caused by other drivers who may be distracted by the activity going on around them. Some of these are: Sudden braking Sudden swerving Speeding Failing to yield to construction equipment or warning lights and more How To Avoid A Work Zone Accident Always be attentive – In a work zone you have to not only look out for yourself, you have to look out for other drivers, construction workers, construction equipment, sudden changes and more.  Allow more distance between you and the driver in front of you – Many times you may not be able to see the changes that the driver in front of you is having to deal with. By placing more distance between you and that driver will give you more time to react to the unexpected.  Obey the posted speed – Most states have laws in place that allow them to increase the fines or penalties for speeding in a work zone. These fines are often double what they would be anywhere else, and may even increase more if you have repeated offenses. Not only does slowing down help you avoid these penalties and fines, slowing down also allows you to have more control over your actions, as well as your reactions.  Avoid any and all distractions – These include visual, manual, and cognitive distractions. Always keep your eyes on the road, do not make adjustments to your radio, seat, or mirrors, and keep a cool head. Do not use your phone, put on your make up, or get drawn into an argument with your passengers. Remember their safety depends on your driving. What Do You Need To Do In The Case Of An Accident? If you have an accident in a construction zone...
