THE 4 FATAL MISTAKES TO AVOID IN YOUR CAR ACCIDENT CASE:
1) NOT SELECTING FULL TORT If you select Limited Tort on your car policy that means you give up your right to get $$ for your pain and suffering (with some exceptions) even if the other person is 100% at fault.
2) NOT DOING FOLLOW UP TREATMENT (Only if you are really hurting) WITH MEDICAL PROVIDERS: An E.R. visit and 1 visit to your family doctor will have some value but not much. Your own auto insurance will pay at least for your first $5,000 of medical treatment without you having to pay them back. Also it will not raise your insurance rates by even a penny for submitting a claim.
3) Thinking that if I hire an attorney for my auto accident case I will have to pay them $$ up front. Most attorneys are like the Tully Law Firm in this regard. We do not charge you any up front money. We also do not charge you a penny for all the records we pay for if we do not get you $$. Plus your recovery is TAX FREE.
4) Going with your relative’s attorney for your car accident case because they “do car accident cases”. Just about every attorney will tell you they do car accident cases. But do they know about exceptions to the Statute of Limitations in auto cases? Or that you will lose your right to pursue an underinsurance claim on your own auto policy by failing to first get a waiver of subrogation? That is when you want a law firm like ours who focus our practice on injury cases and car accidents. 40 years of doing the same thing daily has to have some value.
WORKERS COMP CASES:
Were you hurt at work for any reason? If so, give our office a call at 412-281-8700. The important thing to know is even if you were at fault causing your own injuries, you can still receive workers compensation $$. You just cannot collect pain and suffering for those injuries. That is the tradeoff in workers compensation cases. Give us a call about it.
GOOD NEWS FOR STOCK MARKET INVESTORS:
January usually sets the tone for how the Stock Market will do for the rest of the year. In January 2023 the Stock Market rose 4.6%. In almost three quarters of the years since 1928 when the January Stock Market went up, the rest of the year turned out a positive gain. However, this year the market has been having problems because of inflation.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Do not be a victim. Do not say I cannot fight back against problems in my life. Please do not walk with your head down. Stand up from your chair and walk to you mail box 20 times to get moving. Do 5 half push-ups daily even from your knees. Lift 3 pound dumbbells for 5 minutes each day! Start today eating in moderation. Then I guarantee you will no longer feel like a victim. You will feel like fighting back against anything depressing you.
ALEX MURDAUGH FOUND GUILTY IN THE MURDER OF HIS WIFE AND SON:
Who followed this case, and why did he do it? In a word, $$. Love of it can make you do unspeakable things.
How did you like the way the season ended for the Steelers? Winning 7 out of 9 sure puts a positive spin on next year. One thing everyone should agree on regarding Coach Tomlin is this: he is able to keep the team together thru adversity and very difficult times. Here is looking to next season!
The big question is are we going to make the playoffs? Hopefully we can continue the playoff streak this year. This will likely be the last year together for the Big 3. Go Sid!
Pitt has really turned its program around and isin March Madness! We wish them nothing but the best! Go Panthers! Same with Penn State basketball.
PENN STATE WRESTLING:
One of the least known sports in general is college wrestling. At Penn State they have had a phenomenal run of NCAA championships. This year they appear to be poised for another championship. What a coach the Lions have.
Hope springs eternal. Even for the most pessimistic fan, there is something about the start of the new season that is exciting. Sure hope the Bucs can be competitive. They do have a lot of good young talent under contract.
