You thought you were doing your part when you “went green” and “heart healthy” by leaving your car in the garage. You started walking to work whenever possible or spent a quiet evening strolling around the neighborhood.

What to Do If You’ve Been Injured
If you’ve been injured by a reckless driver or a negligent company or municipality, you deserve compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and suffering. You must already live with the pain of injury and the difficult process of recovery, all because of someone’s thoughtless behavior. You should not have to shoulder the financial burden,too.
