Summer Safety Tips: Staying Safe Outdoors Fireworks Safety Fireworks can result in severe burns, blindness, scars, and even death. Fireworks that are often thought to be safe, such as sparklers, can reach temperatures above 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, and can burn users and bystanders.

The AAP recommends prohibiting public sale of all fireworks, including those by mail or the Internet. Bug Safety Don't use scented soaps, perfumes or hair sprays on your child.
Liability Coverage. Every Arizona driver must have mandatory minimum liability limits for car insurance. It's the law. But you have a choice on how much protection to purchase. Lots of people believe they have purchased "full coverage" but it may be wise to investigate before you need to know exactly what "full coverage" you have.

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. Insurance companies might be choosing to cooperate with settlement mills, in part because settlement mills appear willing to settle the largest claims — which present the highest chance of a catastrophic verdict — at an attractive discou
We often hear from our clients that they have "full coverage" insurance. But what does that really mean? Arizona's current law, A.R.S. § 28-4009, requires drivers have at least $15,000 to cover injuries to an individual, $30,000 to cover injuries to a group of people, and $10,000 for damage to property. This level of coverage became law in Arizona 42 years ago. As others have pointed out, at that time, Richard Nixon was president! Airbags were a futuristic invention...not standard equipment on cars. One of the most popular cars, the Ford Gran Torino, cost about $4,500. In the last 40 y
