Quote I am pondering
“As long as you are alive, you will either live to accomplish your own goals and dreams or be used as a resource to accomplish someone else’s.” – Grant Cardone from his book, The 10 X Rule
This is a great reminder to grab your life by the horns in 2019 and take charge of what you want for you and your family!
Witness statements can save a case
When an accident occurs at an intersection and it is one driver’s word against the other’s, it is not uncommon for a police officer to not issue a ticket to anyone at all. Insurance companies will fight tooth and nail to prove their driver wasn’t at fault when no citations were issued. But witnesses can make all the difference if they willing to state what happened, which can help you prove that the accident was not your fault. Be kind to the people who stop to help, ask them what they saw, and if they’d be willing to write it down or send it to you in a text. Make sure to also get their full name and contact information so that the insurance company can reach out to them if necessary.
