I was recently involved in a car accident. Unfortunately, since it was my first accident, I was scatter-brained and anxious. What I did not realize at the time was that the actions you take immediately after the accident can affect a personal injury case and the outcome of that case. I wanted to find a way to share my experiences and mistakes with other. Since the Internet is so popular, I figured this would be a great way to do so. While you likely aren't planning on being in an accident soon, if you are, hopefully you remember some of the tips I share on this website.

While you may have a will written that provides instructions on what to do with your assets when you pass, a living will is something else entirely. Also called an advanced directive, your living will gives explicit instructions on what to do in the event you are incapacitated.

Placing your health and your very life in the hands of a medical professional can be a daunting experience. Even when things go perfectly well, having to be hospitalized and undergoing surgery can be terrifying and uncomfortable for most people.
