I am sure that none of these men expected to be involved in a car accident last night. You cannot plan for the impact a car accident has on your life and the life of your family. Should you or a loved one be involved in a car accident, it is important that you protect your future by talking with an attorney before talking to the insurance companies. Insurance companies have attorneys looking out for them-so should you!
Drive safely, and watch out for those who don't.
