However, even seemingly innocent information can cause big trouble if you’re involved in a personal injury lawsuit. What’s the problem with social media? You might think twice about posting racy pictures online, but not about a picture of you smiling with your friends, right? How about a picture

In the article, “Run of the Mill Justice” Nora Freeman Engstrom of Stanford Law School interviewed lawyers and paralegals at high volume law firms, and analyzed their not-infrequent disciplinary files. Her conclusion is surprising, but logical:  high volume “settlement mill” law firms work because insurance companies, which pay the bills, like them.

Are Your Tires Safe?

Filled under Accident, Auto Accidents, Bache & Lynch on July 9, 2013 - no comments.

Americans drive three trillion miles a year, every inch in reliance on their tires. Nobody thinks much about their tires — you fill them up with air, change them when they are flat, rotate them, and replace them when you can see all of Lincoln’s head on a penny. Even the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration doesn’t tell consumers and owners of cars, SUVs, passenger van, or trucks to do much other than regularly check
