WHEN AND HOW TO FILE A CAR ACCIDENT REPORT IN COLORADO

accident report

Drivers love shortcuts. But sometimes what seemed like the quick and easy route turns out to be a lot more time-consuming and costly than you expected. The same can be said about the way some people handle car accidents. Consider this situation: A driver in a hurry gets into a minor scrape with another vehicle in heavy traffic; the motorists exchange contact information and decide, since nobody is hurt, not to waste any more time filing an accident report. It happens all the time, but it’s often the wrong move. There are several compelling reasons to file an accident report for any kind...

$2.4 MILLION: THE STORY OF ONE FDAZAR CLIENT

2.4 Million Reasons To Call Frank Azar

“Are those real people in your ads?" It’s probably the most common question prospective clients ask us at Franklin D.

Those are actual FDAzar clients featured in our commercials, and the dollar amounts mentioned reflect what their personal injury cases actually settled for. REAL PEOPLE. REAL STORIES.

Happy New Year 2019 Fireworks

It’s one of the unavoidable rites of winter. Every December, as the holidays wind down and the new year approaches, people make plans to step up their game come January.

But some are easy to keep and can actually help keep you alive to enjoy many new years to come. Here are five basic resolutions for safer driving in 2019; you may already be following most or even all of them,...

HOW TECHNOLOGY IS MAKING DRIVING SAFER

car technologies that keep driving safe

It wasn’t all that long ago that the primary safety feature you could find in the most advanced cars on the road consisted of a seat belt that stretched across your lap. Then a few models began offering exotic features such as antilock brakes and dual front airbags (which didn’t become mandatory for all passenger vehicles in the United States until 1998). We now take those life-saving innovations for granted. But in the last few years, a wave of startling, risk-reducing features have been introduced in the auto world; although most of them are not yet standard on all vehicles, they’re...

DO I NEED UNINSURED MOTORIST COVERAGE?

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Driving defensively is something that students learn when they first take the wheel. You have to not only pay attention to your own driving, you have to anticipate the actions of other drivers and plan accordingly, giving yourself enough time and distance to react properly. The same holds true when it comes to purchasing auto insurance. Many motorists think they’re adequately covered if they have insurance that protects them in the event that they’re at fault in an accident. But if you really want to protect yourself and your assets from an economic crash, you have to anticipate the crazy things...

BLIND SPOTS AND HOW TO FIX THEM: DRIVING SAFETY FACTS

BLIND SPOTS CAUSE 20% OF ACCIDENTS It happens hundreds of times a day, hundreds of thousands of times a year. A driver attempts to change lanes — and ends up in a sideswipe collision with another vehicle, thanks to a blind spot. According to one study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly one in five of all accidents involve drivers changing lanes and crashing into other vehicles they didn’t see. Common as they are, blind-spot accidents are also highly preventable. Traffic gurus say that exercising just a little extra preparation, awareness and caution could save the motoring public considerable expense...

HEALTH CONCERNS LEAD TO CRACKDOWN ON TEEN VAPING

e-cigarette and cigarette

First, the good news. The number of adult Americans who smoke cigarettes has declined significantly in recent years, from 21 percent in 2005 to less than 16 percent in 2016. That represents a big drop in tobacco-related mortality, although smoking remains the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the country, accounting for 480,000 deaths a year. At least part of the reduction can be attributed to the development of better smoking cessation aids and programs, such as nicotine gum and patches. It’s also been suggested that the growing popularity of e-cigarettes and vaping could be a factor; the makers of...

SOME PAINFUL FACTS ABOUT WHIPLASH CLAIMS

Whiplash Injury

Car accidents can produce many different types of injuries. One of the most common is also one of the least understood: Whiplash Injury. It’s often ignored, belittled or dismissed as, quite literally, a pain in the neck — something annoying but hardly worth bothering about. But whiplash, and the constellation of symptoms associated with it, can turn out to be a bigger pain than drivers realize, and it deserves to be taken seriously. WHAT IS WHIPLASH INJURY? Whiplash is an injury that occurs as a result of an impact that produces rapid forward-and-back or sideways movement of the head and neck. Typically,...

THE TALCUM POWDER LAWSUIT: LINKS TO ASBESTOS, CANCER LEAD TO BIG VERDICTS

baby powder

The raging controversy over possible health risks associated with talcum powder use just keeps getting hotter. Thousands of lawsuits have been filed on behalf of people who claim that they developed cancer because of exposure to talc products, resulting in billions of dollars in jury verdicts in just the last few months. The manufacturers of talc products deny any wrongdoing and are appealing many of the verdicts, but many more cases are headed for trial. QUESTIONS ABOUT PURITY, TALCUM POWDER AND OVARIAN CANCER Talc is a naturally occurring mineral, composed primarily of silicon, magnesium, and oxygen. Ground into powder, it’s long...

ELECTRIC SCOOTERS: FAST, CHEAP, AND RISKY?

Scooter rental

In just a few months, the dockless electric scooter has evolved from an oddity to a common sight in many major American cities. And as the numbers have increased, so has the level of annoyance among pedestrians and motorists, many of whom regard the whizzing, toy-like conveyances as too flimsy for the roads and yet too fast for the sidewalks. But others have embraced the phenomenon, seeing in the easy-rent, drop-anywhere vehicles a welcome solution to urban traffic, a way to negotiate congested areas quickly, at a fraction of the cost-per-mile of a gas-guzzling car. Some even regard such “smart mobility”...
