If you have suffered hearing loss, you may wish to consider whether there are liable parties.

Some injuries, especially soft tissue injuries and head trauma, may not present symptoms right away even if your injuries are serious.

Many motorists assume that there are fewer dangers on the roads at night because there is less traffic, but this is not the case. In addition to the unique risks of this time, truck drivers trying to make deadlines may be driving at night, and you may be less visible than a large big rig.

Do yourself a favor and call him. Andy
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
