    BACK TO SCHOOL: Is refurbishing a football helmet enough to keep athletes safe?

    Posted By Darrigo and Diaz and Jimenez

    Can I File a Lawsuit If the Accident Was Partly My Fault?

    Posted By Darrigo and Diaz and Jimenez

    Determining fault is one of the most difficult aspects of any accident claim. However, it is also the most important. Determining who was at fault for an accident, and to what degree, is rarely straightforward – even in cases that seem “black and white.” For example, let’s say that Driver A was making a left-hand
