9 Ways To Avoid Getting Duped By Insurance Company Settlement Tactics

Every now and then, not often, but once in a while, you run across a truly outstanding informational resource online.

An authoritative, in-depth, well-researched, and well-written piece that was put together by an obvious industry expert.

It’s the kind of thing you bookmark so you’ll always know right where to find it when the day comes that you just might need it.

That is exactly the type of information that TriMark Legal Funding likes to provide for our clients and visitors every day.

What follows is a tremendous article by Portland Attorney Travis Mayor.

Travis launched his legal career at a large personal injury insurance defense firm in Oregon. Travis negotiated on behalf of clients in both state and federal court. As an insurance defense attorney, Travis gained a wealth of valuable experience and meaningful insight into how the insurance industry defends itself in personal injury claims. Then he leveraged this experience and opened his own personal injury firm in Portland, Oregon.

Travis’ insight is invaluable to his clients in Portland, but TriMark serves a nationwide clientele. With the exception of where Travis cites Oregon statutes, we felt that this article could be highly beneficial to personal injury victims throughout the United States, so we are featuring it here.

Shocking dashcam video shows NJ vehicle veer off road, flip over in road rage incident

IDIOT ALERT:

In addition to inducting himself into the “Idiot Driver” Hall of Fame, the as-yet-unidentified, but still alive driver of the Honda Accord is also a recipient of the Dumb-Dumb of the Week Award for proving, once again, that Forrest Gump’s mama was right; Stupid IS As Stupid Does.

A feud between two New Jersey drivers ended when one lost control, veered off the road and flipped over, shocking new dashcam video shows.

The driver of a Honda Accord could be seen making aggressive maneuvers along Palisades Parkway in an attempt to pass a Ford F-150 Raptor that was in the far-left lane — traditionally the lane used for passing traffic.

The video started with the Accord in the right lane of a two-lane

Woman Reveals Horrific Head Injury After Airbag Didn’t Deploy in Car Crash

She told followers: “In April last year I had a car accident, and my airbag didn’t go off so my

Takata airbag injuries kill Florida woman

A Florida woman who was injured by a Takata airbag during a slow speed crash has died from her injuries. The 2014 crash left Patricia Mincey with catastrophic injuries. She died this week and her lawyer says the lawsuit against Takata and Honda will continue.

Mincey was an active retiree turned quadriplegic following the slow speed crash. The 2001 Honda Civic she was in collided with an SUV. The family blamed the woman’s injuries on an exploding Takata air bag.

The crash happened four days before the initial recall involving Honda vehicles in Florida and California.

Her attorney, Palm Beach Gardens attorney Theodore J. Leopold of Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC, released the following statement:

“We are immensely saddened by the death of Patricia Mincey, who suffered grave injuries when the Takata airbag in her Honda vehicle violently deployed in a minor accident. For two years, Ms. Mincey suffered from her severe injuries caused by the aggressive airbag deployment.

A Day in the Life of a Trauma Surgeon: Get Your Foot Off of My Dash

We have all seen it before. You are cruising right down the road, and it immediately catches your attention. There is a female passenger in another vehicle with her feet up on the dash.  Imagine the horror if someone did this to your brand new vehicle!

The nightmare came true for both Bob and Carol. They were running errands around town and Carol put her foot up on the glistening dash of Bob’s new SUV. Holding back his true thoughts, Bob politely says, “Honey, please get your foot off of my new dash.” Carol replies, “I am just admiring my new pedicure like you’ve been admiring your new SUV.” As the conversation heats up, Bob becomes distracted while making a left hand turn at a four-way intersection and fails to yield to an oncoming vehicle. Distracted as well, Carol still has her foot on the dash at the time of impact.

Brake pedals are slammed to the floor and evasive maneuvers fail. Bob’s brand new SUV is struck in the right front corner sending it into a spin, before it rolls over onto its roof and slides to a stop. Fortunately, all the occupants of both vehicles were seat belted and most were able to walk away from the crash. Carol was not so lucky. As the passenger frontal bag deployed, it pushed Carol’s foot through the windshield and her toes were amputated as the vehicle slid on its roof, dragging her foot across the hot summer asphalt.

One can only imagine the pain and fear when Carol looked down and saw that her toes were gone. After stabilizing Carol for transport to the hospital, the good-intentioned paramedic recovered her missing toes. After transferring Carol’s care to me, he said, “here are her toes for you to put back on.” I smiled and thanked him, knowing well that was not going to happen. Not only were two toes completely missing but the three amputated toes along with her foot were too badly damaged to perform a reimplantation.

Carol received a complete trauma evaluation, and fortunately the only injury was to her foot. We took her to the operating room and cleaned things up, leaving Carol a functional forefoot amputation. After a couple of days of physical therapy she was back on her feet.
