5 Reasons to Hire a Car Accident Lawyer

Unfortunately, some people do not understand the importance of working with a lawyer after a car accident. If you are injured in an accident due to some else’s negligence, the at-fault party should compensate you for the damages caused.

An Austin car accident lawyer, who has a great deal of experience in handling car accident cases, would advise that if you are ever in such a situation, hiring a car accident lawyer to represent you should be the first step you take. A good lawyer will help you create a strong claim and ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.

What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Car Accident Lawyer?

1. Well-Versed with State Laws

To win any case, you must understand what the law says about your situation. Many people, even lawyers in the other fields of law, do not necessarily know what the law requires for car accident claims.

Therefore, you need to hire a car accident attorney because they have knowledge and experience in accident cases. They will advise you on the best time to file the claim and come up with the traffic rules violated by the other driver. With such a foundation, you have better chances of winning the case.

2. Calculate an Accurate Value of Your Claim

Valuing a car accident claim without prior experience is challenging. In many cases, clients undervalue their claims. If the insurance company realizes your naivety, they will hurriedly compensate you because they are in the business of making money.

However, a skilled lawyer understands the different aspects to look at before valuing a claim ensuring that you get fair compensation. When valuing a car accident claim, some of the important factors to consider include medical bills, lost wages, lost future earnings, cost of damaged property, emotional cost, and future medical costs.

3. Gather Significant Evidence

Like any other lawsuit, you need to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the damages suffered from the car accident result from negligence. Coming up with the facts that connect your damages and the accident is not easy. Many clients representing their own case lose at this point.

To save you this stress–and additional losses–hire a reputable accident attorney who will go to great lengths to collect evidence for your case. They will collect evidence from the police reports, eyewitnesses, expert witnesses, photos from the scene, access security cameras around, and gather other pieces of evidence that are difficult to obtain.

4. Advise You on What to Say

After a car accident, the police and the insurance company at fault will ask you to give your statements. The things you say, especially to the insurance company, can be used against your case. With that in mind, do not say a word before consulting a lawyer.

He or she will advise you on what to say. They will help you understand the trick questions from the insurance company. The insurance company will go to all lengths to make it look like it was your fault.

5. Fight for You

In some instances, car accident claims are smooth, especially when both parties are cooperative. However, some claims are settled in a fight, and your lawyer must be willing to fight for you.

If a lawyer realizes that they will not settle the case through arbitration, they will take the next step of taking it to court instead of settling for the unfair offer.

Contact a Car Accident Lawyer Today

An experienced car accident lawyer will help you with all the above. They will handle the stress and dirt of your case as you concentrate on recovery.

Remember, you have nothing to lose by contacting several car accident lawyers because they offer a free consultation.

Serious Car Accidents that Occurred in Movie Sets

Watching a car accident scene in a well-produced movie can be nerve-wracking. The only consolation is the knowledge that it is all scripted and that nobody dies for real. However, it may shock you to find out that quite a handful of people died in real life while producing some of your favorite movies and series. Car accidents on the movie set are not an uncommon occurrence. 

From the cast and their stunt doubles to the crew members, on set accidents spare no one. Some of them have been fatal, while others are just minor and nothing to write about. Here are some of the serious car accidents that occurred in movie sets.

Car Accidents that Occurred on Movie Sets

Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018)

If you loved the Maze Runner: The Death Cure, chances are, you probably liked Dylan O’Brien, who played Thomas in the movie. Despite his intriguing lead performance, The Death Cure almost killed him in a stunt gone wrong. He had to move from one car top to another in that stunt while both cars were still in motion.  

The stunt did not go quite as planned and ended with the actor being dragged under the vehicle on which he was strapped. The accident left him with fractured cheekbones, a concussion, and lacerations. He also sustained injuries on his orbital sockets. Although his injuries were serious, he was able to recover fully and get back to his acting career.

The Hangover Part II

When considering the risky movies, the last to feature on your list would be a comedy show. In most cases, you would not even consider them dangerous. However, The Hangover Part II was nowhere close to your regular comedy show. 

It required a lot of stunt work that led to Scott McLean’s engagement, who played as Ed Helm’s double. In a scene where he had to stick out his head in a moving taxi, McLean hit his head on an oncoming vehicle.

The incident had him nursing a huge gash on his head and tore off the flesh from his skull. He was compensated for his injuries since the taxi was moving faster than it was supposed to at the time of the accident.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)

In a stunt that required her to drive opposite moving vehicles, Gabriello Cedillo got into a life-changing accident that left her permanently disabled. The then 24-year-old woman was driving in her car when another car’s toe cable snapped, whipped through the air, and plunged into her windshield. 

The cable struck her head, causing severe injuries. The injuries were so severe; it was a shock that she survived the incident. Although she was paid $18 million as compensation, her life is now one of high dependency.

4. Resident Evil: Final Chapter (2019)

You have probably heard of the fatal motorcycle accident that Olivia Jackson (Milla Jovovich’s stunt double) got into while doing a stunt on set. You might not know that that was not the only accident that occurred in the Resident Evil production set.

Ricardo Cornelius, a member of the Resident Evil crew, was killed when a car slid off a rotating platform. The unsecured car crashed into him, and although he was rushed to the hospital, the crew member was pronounced dead.  

What’s Next After an Accident?

Whether you are an aspiring actor, crew member or are planning to play the role of an extra in movie production, you should remember that even movies have real threats and danger. As such, you should be extra careful. In the event of a car accident on set, you can consult a car accident lawyer in Toronto. With their guidance and help, you will be fully compensated.

Must-Have Car Gadgets For A Safer Drive

Worldwide, it’s estimated that around 1.25 million people die from car accidents every year. In the US, there are 6 million car accidents that happen annually, with 16,438 car crashes per day. But compared to the previous years, it has been noted that thanks to the change in driver attitude and the presence of vehicle safety technology, there has been a significant improvement in driver safety.

We use cars and vehicles for everyday transportation, so drivers are always at risk of getting into an accident while on the road. Car accidents are dangerous and can be fatal, which is why there is always an emphasis on having the proper driving skills and following road safety rules. However, sometimes unanticipated events may happen, so owning some of these gadgets for your car may help make your ride much safer.

For better visibility

Rearview dashcams are the go-to car gadget for their useful ability to record anything that’s happening from both the front and back of your car. The live video also becomes especially beneficial as evidence, should you become involved in a car accident. Having a rearview dashcam can also depend on the car brand or model that you have, as newer cars nowadays already have dashcams included. So for those with older vehicles, you’d have to buy your own dashcam. They’re thankfully not that expensive and are relatively affordable. For another inexpensive car accessory to help you with blind spots, you can also consider blind spot mirrors.

To track driving speed

Speedometers can also come in handy to keep track of your driving speed. Aside from your vehicle’s own speedometer, GPS speedometers can be a good back-up by since they have more versatile functions such as the ability to measure mileage, voltage, and engine RPM. Be sure to check first if the GPS speedometer is compatible with your car before buying. Meanwhile, certain cars like Chevrolet feature a “Teen Drive Mode” where parents are able to adjust the car’s speed and audio volumes. This feature also ensures that teens have buckled their seatbelts first before starting the car or listening to music.

For convenience during your drives

For added convenience, there are car accessories, such as smartphone holders that come with strong suction cups or magnets that can charge your phone wirelessly. Meanwhile, Bluetooth transmitters and adapters allow compatibility even with old cars. These can enable you to take calls and play music in a hands-free way, so you don’t have to fumble with your phone while driving. 

With the evolution of technology, many devices have become available for drivers to use. By using car gadgets or accessories that are suited to your needs, you can have a safer drive everyday.

Tips on Choosing the Right Car Accident Attorney

A car accident can be a devastating event, both mentally and psychologically. After getting involved in an accident, you may start to wonder how you will recover damages caused by the other person’s negligence. There are many car accident attorneys in the United States and you will need to be extra vigilant to select the best attorney. Your chances of getting a good settlement lie with a strong representation

Accidents in the United States happen quite frequently, and if you happen to be in one, you might need an attorney to represent you. Choosing a car accident attorney is very important. You want an attorney that will represent your best interests as you focus on getting better. There are many qualities of a good car accident lawyers, and during your initial contact, you can easily identify them:

Excellent Communication Skills

An attorney-client relationship is one that needs constant communication for it to prosper. If your attorney barely answers your calls or replies to your message, then there will be a break in communication. 

You want an attorney that will call you with updates about your claim. Attorneys are usually busy, but they always try to return calls they missed. 

Experience

When in the first meeting with the attorney, ask them about their experience. Before you leave their office, make sure you have confirmed they have worked on numerous car accident cases. They should also have experience in litigation because your case might have to go to trial. Some attorneys have websites with their track record; you can visit their website and see for yourself if they have an excellent winning record. 

Legal Fees

Many people believe attorneys are very expensive and will only visit them when they have nowhere else to go. Most attorneys are affordable, and many of them work on a contingency when it comes to car accident cases. 

Contingency means that your attorney will get paid if you get the compensation by deducting legal costs, including their fees. Do not worry about paying out of pocket before the attorney accepts your case, but make sure you discuss legal fees before you agree to hire them for your case. 

Good Negotiator

Insurance companies have a notoriety of offering meager compensations and playing hardball until the claimant accepts it. A good attorney will spot the low offer from a mile away and demand a better settlement. 

There will be some back and forth between your attorney and the insurance company; hence, having good negotiation skills will increase the chances of receiving the insurance company’s best settlement offers. 

Use Referrals

When looking for an attorney to represent you, one of the first things you may consider doing is asking your friends or relatives if they know an attorney who can help you. At times, a family member or friends might have had a car accident a few years back, and a good attorney helped them get good compensation. Visit all the recommended attorneys and select the attorney you think will best serve your interests. Personal recommendations are good because you get to hear their experience instead of reading a client’s testimonial on the attorney’s website. 

You can also check their personality; see how they interact with other people in the office. Your attorney should be a person you can get along with without any friction. You will spend a lot of time interacting with them, therefore do not choose someone with a horrible personality.

Book Review: “Get in the Car, Jane!”

GET IN THE CAR, JANE!

  • Author: Billy Van Zandt
  • Publisher: Van Zandt/Milmore Productions
  • Paperback, 248 pages
  • Our Score: 5 out of 5 stars

I first flew to Los Angeles in 2015. After I landed I picked up my rental car and headed to a restaurant to meet Billy Van Zandt.

38-years earlier, Billy Van Zandt did the same thing. Only instead of heading to lunch, he headed to Lucille Ball’s house. Ms. Ball wasn’t home. Billy was informed of this news by a butler who proceeded to slam the door in his face. But fate soon lent a hand and, before he knew it, he and his then-girlfriend Jane Wilmore would soon embark on an amazing four decade journey through Hollywood.

Brilliantly written, “Get in the Car, Jane!” is a hilarious look at what goes on behind the scenes in the wonderful world of television. From wide-eyed kids who wrote their own theatrical shows and aspired to be actors to show runners of their own shows, Billy and Jane’s adventures will keep you in stitches as they work their way up the ropes, rubbing elbows with many of the greatest performers in history, including  Lucille Ball, Brooke Shields, Frank Sinatra, Don Rickles, Martin Lawrence, Andrew Dice Clay, Richard Lewis, Bob Newhart, Jamie Lee Curtis, The Wayans Bros., Richard Mulligan, Alan Arkin, DL Hughley, Dorothy Lamour, Elaine Stritch, Olympia Dukakis and Penny Marshall,

Billy and Jane’s writing samples earn them a spot on the writing staff of “Newhart” and soon they begin working on and writing shows for many of the popular television series of the 1990s, including “Anything But Love,” “Martin,” “The Wayans Bros,” “Suddenly, Susan,” “Yes Dear” and “The Hughleys.” All of these tales are terrific. The pages dealing with the birth, and death, of the Don Rickles/Richard Lewis series “Daddy Dearest” is worth the price of the book alone.

Sadly Jane Wilmore passed away earlier this year but Billy Van Zandt is still writing and still knocking them dead in the aisles. Today’s times require a healthy dose of laughter to help get us by and “Get in the Car, Jane!” is the perfect prescription!

The Rods’ Dave “Rock” Feinstein and Carl Canedy talks about new song “Great Big Fake Ones”

Media Mikes had the great pleasure recently to speak to not one but two legendary heavy metal musicians. Dave “Rock” Feinstein and Carl Canedy make up 2/3rds of the band The Rods a band which has been carrying the flag for heavy metal and hard rock since the late 1970’s. Both members have new solo albums out along with a newly released Rods single titled “Great Big Fake Ones” and we spoke with the guys recently about these new releases and their plans for the coming year.

Adam Lawton: Can you tell us about the decision to re-issue “Heavier Than Thou” and
“Hollywood”?
Dave “Rock” Feinstein: “Heavier than Thou”, and the “Hollywood” albums have been albums that wanted by the fans for a long time.  We felt that now was a good time to re-issue them.  They are both slightly different than a traditional RODS album, so I think that’s what makes them so interesting to the fans.
Carl Canedy: We’ve been in the process of re-issuing a lot of our back catalog that we own the rights to. These two CD’s in particular were something the fans had not had a chance own in a re-issued, re-mastered format. Fans have been emailing us for years asking when they’d be available. So like Dave said it simply was time.

AL:  What can you tell us about the newly recorded Rods track “Great Big Fake Ones”?
DF: There are many words that have been used to describe the song, but when Carl brought the song in, the three of us just felt that it was so funny, and just different enough to make the fans want to hear it.  You have to take it for what it is.  It’s not a traditional RODS song, but it is a very catchy tune that should make you laugh.
CC: The guys have been really cool about doing a song this since I initially brought it to them. It’s clearly a “one-off” type of song. The fans who’ve heard love it. I think as long as you realize it’s “tongue-in-cheek” you can enjoy it for what it is. Personally I love it and think it’s quite amusing. I gave it to the guys and when it came time to record it was done quickly. Rock and Garry really nailed the vocals.

AL: You both recently released new solo albums. Can you tell us about those and some of the guests who appear on the albums?
DF:  “Clash of Armor” is my forth solo release now and was done mostly by myself and Nate Horton. On my previous releases I have had quite a few guest performers. In the past guys like John West, Michael Butler, Jeff Howell and Matt Barnes have all come in to help me on various tracks as has Nate. On the song “Bitten By the Beast” from my 3rd solo release I had Carl and Garry come in. I played guitar and Ronnie James Dio did the vocals.
CC: On my CD, I have John Hahn, a Leviathan artist who is a Mike Varney discovery. I’ve known John for quite a few years as I played on his first solo CD in the “90’s. Mark Tornillo has 3 vocals, Joe Comeau has 2 vocals and David Porter has 2 vocals. Chris Caffery came in and did some soloing on 2 tracks as well as several other artists who graciously brought their talent to this project.

AL: With a career spanning multiple decades what do you find these days to be the most rewarding part of being a musician?
DF: It’s rewarding to still be able to create new music.  Of course playing live is the ultimate rush, and to know that there are still fans around the world checking out our music and wanting more.

AL: Are there any plans to perform this new material live and what type of
plans do The Rods have in place for 2015?
DF: I think I can speak for the three of us that we love to perform live, and if a song of ours merits being performed live, then we will do so.  Right now for us we take every request to perform seriously, and try to do as much as we can to make these live appearances happen, For us and for the fans as well.
CC: We do have a few dates in the works that are not yet confirmed and we have confirmed the Defenders of Old Festival in March with Exciter. We’re excited about this show as it’s the first time in years we’ve been to the NY area. Also, I love the band and the guys in Exciter so I’m looking forward to the reunion.

DVD Review “Revenge of the Electric Car”

Directed by: Chris Paine
Narrated by: Tim Robbins
Starring: Elon Musk, Carlos Ghosn, Bob Lutz, Greg Abbott, Dan Neil
MPAA Rating: Not Rated
Distributed by: New Video
Running time: 90 minutes

Film: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Extras: 3.5 out of 5 stars

If you are aware of the film “Who Killed the Electric Car?”, directed by Chris Paine, then you should known about this one. It is his follow up film focusing on the return of electric cars. The film is definitely interesting and shows a lot of great points. There are celebrity appearance from Danny DeVito, Jon Favreau and Arnold Schwarenegger. I enjoyed the flow of the film and I felt that it kept my interest from beginning to end. Docuramafilms is one of my favorite sources for choosing really great documentary subjects. It is rare to find that you are that entertained from a documentary especially about electric cars.

The film starts off around 2006 after the electric cars where destroyed, now they are back and want revenge. The film is narrated by Tim Robbins and follows GM and Elon Mush as they bring the return of the electric car. The film shows what the future of the car will be and how it is back faster, furiouser and cleaner than ever. The fighters to bring the electric car are Bob Lutz from General Motors, Elon Musk from Tesla Motors, Carlos Ghosn from Nissan, and Greg Abbott, an independent electric car converter. The director, Chris Paine, did a great job and is definitely on my radar now. He knows how to take a topic and turn it into a great documentary.

The extras on the film are really decent and impressive. There is a Tribeca Film Festival Talk which runs about 35 minutes. The panel features Elon Musk, Dan Neil, Carlos Ghosn, David Duchovny and director Chris Paine. There is about 20 minutes of additional bonus footage, definitely worth checking out if you enjoyed the film. If you enjoyed the celebrity interviews in the film, there are about 25 minutes of additional interviews. Lastly there is the theatrical trailer and Nissan Leaf promo trailer also included.
