A good personal injury lawyer is worth his weight in gold

I’ve admitted it once and I’ll admit it again. I, The Hawg, was once an attorney. I gave that up years ago but still remember how valuable personal injury cases were to my small office.

I also remember how valuable those auto accident cases were to other firms in town and how poorly some clients were represented. Here was the deal on each and every one of those cases – if they could be settled easily and for a good amount, then just about any attorney could represent the client well.

If, however, things got tough and an attorney found himself up against a stubborn insurance company then someone who was the victim of an auto accident really needed an attorney who had the ability and the will negotiate well and be more than ready to go to court to get a client what was due. Here’s the thing – some insurance companies are easy to deal with while some are not. When a personal injury case gets tough, a lawyer must be tough enough to make sure the client gets what is owed.

If you are in the Dallas area and need a personal injury lawyer with a good track record and the willingness to tough it out through a hard case if necessary, click one of the links near the top of this post. That’s a good place to start, kids.

Summer and swimming pools – great, but protect your skin

I grew up in the South and I learned something at a very early age – it’s hot down here, folks. It’s far too hot far too often, in fact. Yes, we typically have about six months of summer in these parts and a half year of “not summer” every year, so one learns to keep cool when the temperature gauge starts creeping up over 85 degrees or so (when the heat hits triple digits, keeping cool becomes more of an obsession than a hobby).

A fast and affordable way to stay cool is to get a swimming pool above ground. Few things are more refreshing than hopping in a soothing pool on a hot day and it’s no surprise that those things are popular in these parts.

Melanoma_Diameter_2_1 Ah, but there a danger involved – skin cancer. Lying around in the sun – whether you happen to be in or near a pool or not – can result in skin cancer and the results of that could be tragic. By the way, if you’ve worried that you might have skin cancer you might do well to click the aforementioned link to see a handy molemap that sheds some light on whether you’ve formed a mole that is indicative of melanoma.

Here’s something else to keep in mind. Let’s say you’ve contracted skin cancer through no fault of your own – someone or something else was responsible. Rather dealing with the financial hardships involved with treating your condition, you might find some help by getting in touch with Pukekohe Family Lawyers. If you’re owed compensation, that bunch may be able to help you secure it.

So, there are a few things to keep in mind this summer. Stay cool, stay safe and enjoy yourself. That’s what summer is for, isn’t it?
