Avoiding Accident-Related Lawsuits
When there's been an accident on the road, most drivers will behave at least somewhat respectfully toward each other. Many will just shrug and let the insurance sort out who is really responsible for the damage later.
And then there are the drivers who seem to think that the rules don't really apply. They may threaten, cajole, or beg you not to file a claim and — when that doesn't work — outright refuse to give you their information and drive off.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition characterized by abnormal reactions to a traumatic event.

Getting hurt while at work is not the kind of thing anyone wants to experience. However, if you have had the unfortunate experience of getting injured and are now out of work because you need to recover from those injuries, you are likely trying to receive workers' compensation.

When I started driving a nicer car, I realized that I became a target for people who wanted to crash into my vehicle and claim that I had something to do with their injuries. I didn't like feeling like a target, so I started talking with a lawyer about ways to reduce my liability. I took a defensive driving course, started staying away from people that were driving recklessly, and focused on avoiding lawsuits by handling interactions with other drivers more responsibly. It was amazing to see how much of a difference those simple actions made on the road. This blog is all about avoiding accident-related lawsuits.
