After an accident or injury, the physical toll on your body is easily visible. You may have suffered bruises from where the seatbelt snapped back against you or your arm or leg may be broken from the impact of the collision.

When you’re injured at work, there are many things you need to do to ensure that you and your family are properly taken care of during your recovery period. Typically, your employer’s insurance company will require you to provide thorough proof of your injuries, as well as information regarding the extent of your medical costs and expenses.

However, seatbelts have traditionally never been featured in school buses, which has been a point of confusion to many parents. Now, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is recommending that all school buses install lap-shoulder seatbelts to keep young riders safe on the way to and from school.

For drivers in Colorado, who are used to the state’s wicked winter roads, getting seasonal tire changes is pretty standard.

Just when one drunk driving campaign comes to an end, news of another horrific DUI/DWI-related accident launches another one. Drunk driving is always in the news and even teens who are too young to drink or drive know about the dangers it presents to drivers and passengers alike.

When you are injured by another person or party, you may face any number of financial headaches — medical expenses, insurance premiums, repairs for your car or other possessions, loss of income, credit card bills and more. In most personal injury cases, restitution is crucial because many injured parties simply don’t have the resources to cover unexpected medical bills and surgical expenses related to a car accident or bad fall without experiencing serious financial repercussions.
