Times can get tough after an accident. You may not be able to work for an extended period of time and the 60% of wages that PIP (Personal Injury Protection) coverage pays may not be enough to cover all of your bills. You need compensation now but your treatment is not complete and therefore, your attorney cannot send out your demand to the insurance company. What are you supposed to do?

Florida Ranked Highest For Bicycle Accidents

Bicycling is considered to be a very healthy activity whether it be for pleasure or for sport. However, Florida needs to take immediate action. A recent study that was published showed that the Sunshine State “had the nation's highest proportion of bicyclist fatalities at 7.4 percent in 2015.” The study used research from 2015 because it was the most recent complete data that was available at this time.

This lack of foresight has caused a large increase in bicycle accidents throughout...
