Proactive driver helps prevent a possible drunk driving accident

We look to the new year with hope and resolution, hope for better tomorrows for ourselves and those we love and resolutions to get things right in order to realize those better tomorrows. Truly, it seems so many things are obtainable and the only thing standing in our way is our own folly.

You may have even been injured, in which case you likely either footed your own hospital and follow-up medical bills and operated on a tightened budget thanks to the wages lost from the time you missed work, or you pursued the compensation you were rightfully owed. You may still be suffering from lingering pains or challenges that continue to remind you of your injury and negatively affect your life.
