Sharing photos and life updates to social media is almost second nature, but posting about a car accident or slip and fall might be a fatal mistake.

Ways Insurance Adjusters Deny Car Accident Claims and How to Fight Back

By Joseph Low on October 16, 2020 - Comments off

When we are in a car accident, the one saving grace we hope for is that the other driver’s insurance policy will cover our injuries. Paying out-of-pocket for medical treatment can easily bankrupt a person in the long run, even if you do have high-quality health insurance. That is why it can be incredibly distressing when you go to file a claim only to offer a tiny settlement from the insurance adjuster that hardly covers an ER visit, much less long-term treatment. You may assume that you have to accept their offer, but we at The Law Firm of Joseph H. Low IV are here to tell you that you can fight back and protect your right to proper and fair compensation after an auto accident.

By Joseph Low on August 25, 2020 - Comments off

Head injuries are some of the most severe, devastating aspects of serious falls and car accidents. And while you might think the worst is over after being released from the hospital, only time will tell what long-term effects your injury may have. While some victims enjoy a full recovery, others are left with varying degrees of paralysis, migraines, cognitive impairments, nerve damage, and other disabilities that manifest gradually as time passes. Furthermore, secondary injuries that are usually considered minor may cause devastating damage due to the weakened and damaged condition of your brain tissue.

By Joseph Low on August 11, 2020 - Comments off

Fast delivery and online shopping have taken over our shopping habits, allowing us to easily order everything from diapers to TVs to fresh produce on Amazon’s marketplace. These on-demand services require a massive network of delivery centers, trucks, and drivers to keep up with customers’ needs.
