This Fuel Pump Failure Increases Your Risk Of Being Involved In A Crash
Your vehicle's fuel pump, not only sends the right amount of pressure through your fuel lines, but it also plays a significant role in the overall functionality of your car. Without receiving the proper amount of diesel, gas, or another alternative fuel, automobiles become stalled, and immovable, which poses a risk to your safety. The particular recall, being brought to your attention, involves various types of cars, and firetrucks are among them. Emergency vehicles are kept in pristine condition, to handle the heavy workloads, but when they can not get to the location, bad things tend to happen.
Traveling at high speed, and having the engine stall, increases your chances of being involved in an accident. Most new vehicles come equipped with power steering, and as a motor loses power, control becomes a concern, which puts all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians in the area at risk. If you become injured due to a faulty fuel pump, or another defective automotive part, contact our office for a free case review to see what your legal options are. You may... ...read full post
Bicycle and Car Accident: Who is At-Fault?
Bella was riding her bike to the beach. It was a beautiful morning and she was going to meet some of her girlfriends for some sun and swimming. Because it was a Saturday morning, traffic was heavy.

Suddenly, an SUV in the lane immediately to Bella's left made a right turn into a beach parking lot, causing Bella to crash her bike into the passenger's side door of the SUV. Bella went flying and landed on the parking lot asphalt, breaking her right collarbone.
The woman immediately got out of her SUV and started yelling at Bella. "Why don't you look where you are going?" The woman complained. "Look! You scratched my new Escalade!"

What Percentage of Auto Accidents Go to Trial?
Cindy had been stopped on the freeway during rush hour when a pickup truck slammed into the back of her car. She was hurt and her car was totaled, but the amount the insurance company offered wouldn’t even cover her medical bills. Her husband, Jim, told her to call a personal injury lawyer.
“No,” said Cindy, her fingers getting white as she squeezed the edge of the table. Visions of herself sitting in the courtroom, a hostile lawyer barking questions at her, the jury staring, everyone looking at her, filled her mind.
“I’m sorry, I just can’t do that.”
Deep down, Cindy knew the insurance company was cheating her. Her car had been totaled, she’d suffered injuries, and she’d missed time from work. But there was just no way she could go through the process of a jury trial.
Cindy is not unusual in being terrified of public speaking, as it’s the most commonly reported fear in surveys. The feeling of getting up in front of others and being judged by a group causes anxiety in the vast majority of us. We might imagine the dramatic... ...read full post

Something As Simple As Cutting The Grass Could Lead To You Needing An Attorney
With summer in full bloom, it seems as if the grass never stops growing. Bees and other flying insects fly about, while flowers and plants thrive. The sun feels much hotter than at other times of the year, but we must keep our yards manicured, for aesthetic appeal, as well as, safety. We understand that risks are involved with these types of activities, but we do not expect a malfunctioning piece of equipment to be the culprit behind the dangers.
Flammable fluids, spinning blades, and multiple other hazards can contribute to your safety being jeopardized. Consumers purchase battery-operated, or electric mowers, chainsaws, trimmers, and more, for convenience, and to eliminate the harmful fumes, and fire hazards, associated with lawn equipment. However, anything human-made can be defective, break, or falter eventually, but manufacturers take on responsibilities, whenever they deem their products to be safe for use and sell them to the public for monetary gain.
Have you been injured due to a defective part, a recalled product, or a malfunctioning piece of equipment? Do you live in St. Petersburg or a... ...read full post
