Changing the Way We Look at Driving

It seems like no matter what the law is, people still text and drive and drink and drive. I have been reading that texting and driving is worse than drinking and driving, and that is almost hard to believe. People seem to be so comfortable texting while going down the highway at 70 or more miles per hour. At that speed you are moving at 103 feet per second. You travel the length of a football field in three seconds. It is no wonder that a good Los Angeles auto accident attorney has his phone ringing off the hook every day.

I do not understand the mindset of people that think the law applies to everyone but them. They ignore set speed limits, text and drive and drink and drive. Some are traveling over the speed limit while texting and driving after having had a few drinks. Something really needs to be done to change the mindset of people. We need to go from the selfish “It’s all about me” attitude to one of wanting to look out for our fellow human beings. Continue reading

I came out ahead on that front, because my car was probably on it’s last legs and I ended up getting more that it was really worth I would guess.At the same time I have missed more than a month of work and the insurance only covers four fifths of my medical bill. A Sacramento auto injury attorney sent some guy up here to talk to me, he claimed that he was going to sue the company that employed the driver of the truck and make every little thing right. Of course when I asked how much of the settlement they were going to get, the guy started to double talk me. Continue reading
