SPOTLIGHT ON OUR CLIENT OF THE MONTH:
This month’s spotlight is on Solomon M., 91 years young. I represented Solomon in a rather severe injury case. We settled his case. Solomon drove in to pick up his check! Still driving safely and sharp as anyone! God Bless you Solomon! Whatever you are doing, keep it up. LOL
WHAT IS NEW AT THE TULLY LAW FIRM:
Michael has taken over doing most of the depositions for our cases in our office. He is doing a great job. I have found Michael is very prepared for them and is passionate about his work.
YOU BE THE JUDGE-QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR DEPOSITION:
Do you have to answer every question you are asked at your deposition? The answer is no. We often tell our clients when preparing them for their depositions the answer “I don’t know” is a fine answer. When you attempt to guess or speculate, it is easy to get yourself in trouble. An example might be if the defense attorney asks you how long you had to observe the Defendant before they rear ended you. If you don’t know, just say I don’t know. If you start to guess and say 20 seconds, the next question will be then why didn’t you do something to avoid being hit? See the trap guessing leads to?
A SAD NOTE:
As you are probably aware an Assistant District Attorney died last month from (in all likelihood) contracting the Coronavirus at the Courthouse. Thank God they shut that place down until they have adequate precautions to prevent other tragedies. Please say a prayer for our deceased brother Russ!
A PRACTICAL TIP TO PROTECT YOU IF YOU ARE HURT IN AN ACCIDENT:
Check your auto insurance policy coverage. We unfortunately often hear from clients who tell us they have full coverage. They were led to believe that by their agent. However, if the full coverage does not include Full Tort and you are hurt in an accident, you are going to have a difficult time getting $$ for your pain and suffering. The Limited Tort option, with rare exceptions, does not allow you to receive money for your pain and suffering from your auto insurance. Hope it helps!
By now everyone knows the Penguin’s attempt at a Stanley Cup fell flat. Losing to Montreal was a real shocker. You can bet one thing for sure. There are going to be plenty of changes in the organization for next season. However, hope springs eternal and there is still time for one more run at Lord Stanley.
The Bucs have been a major flop so far this season. I hope by the time you read this Newsletter it has turned around. How about you? Are you still watching the Pirates?
The Steelers are getting ready to play. Ben is back and seems to be recovered from his shoulder surgery. Many think he will make all the difference in the world from last season. The defense seemed to be great last year for a lot of the games. Now if we can just get the offense going…
How are you enjoying the summer? It has been a difficult time for people because of this virus and the inability to really go many places on vacation. However, one thing that we should all be thankful for is the weather. Our area had the most incredibly warm summer that I can recall. How was your summer?
TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT?
Here is a suggestion. Drink one 8 oz. glass of water 15 minutes before you eat your meal. Then eat what you were going to have. The idea is that by the time you eat your meal the water will saturate through your body and help you feel full. Then you do not eat as much. Try it. It works!
A SUGGESTION FOR DEALING WITH THE DAILY CORONAVIRUS NEWS:
Refuse to watch the news. Everything you need to know about it will be in a headline anyway in the newspaper. If you must watch the news try to limit it to one time a day for a very brief period of time. I started doing this last month and it has taken away a lot of the stress of this virus. It just seems like the more you hear bad news, the more depressed you get. Do you agree?
JOKE OF THE MONTH:
Working in a mirror factory is something I can totally see myself doing! Get it? LOL
WORD OF THE MONTH:
Muggle. Noun. A person who is not conversant with a particular activity or skill. We joked that my Dad was a muggle in the kitchen because he burned everything!
