Safety Tips for Avoiding Vehicle Collisions
When a traffic light turns green, always look left, right, straight ahead, and left again before pulling out into an intersection. Do not assume that other cars are stopped when their light has turned red.
If you have been injured in a car accident because of someone else’s negligence, call a personal injury attorney right away. In order to determine what your claim is worth and to get you the full compensation that you deserve, you will need to reach maximum medical improvement (or MMI) if possible. It is critical that you get the medical treatment you need- without delay.
