This is not always the case, and you may want to investigate whether you have a claim, since the costs of an injury can be significant. Seeking financial recovery can help you defray some of these costs.

Now that the holidays are over, many children are spending time with the new toys and games they have gotten as gifts over the last few weeks. It’s a joyous time, but unfortunately not every toy which is available for sale today is safe and parents need to continue to be vigilant about toy safety in their Hollywood homes.

When you buy something at a home décor store, you expect it to be safe. With so many products online and on the market, not all products are carefully tested for safety. Just because you can purchase something from an e-retailer or a store, it does not mean it is safe.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
