The California Injury Blog is provided as public service by Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys. Our intention is to assist those who do not have ready access to legal representation to have some idea of their rights and options and thereby level the playing field between the “haves” and “have nots.”
Many people who have been in serious accidents, as well as their family members and friends, seek information about their accident from Internet sources. It is our intention to provide actual accident information based upon reports from various sources along with additional relevant information such as applicable law, statistics, a cursory analysis and some points for the involved parties and their families to consider that news sources are not equipped to provide. It is our hope that by doing so, fewer people will lose their rights due to lack of information.
We are regularly consulted by accident victims and/or their surviving family members whose rights to recover rightful compensation has been terminated or seriously harmed by the failure to take timely appropriate action. It is our intention to promote the prevention of these loss of rights by educating our readers as to what was reported to have happened in particular accidents, what laws may apply, how frequent similar accidents occur, who may be legally at fault, what their rights may be, time limits for taking action and so on.
People who have witnessed accidents and then read our blogs have been helpful to police agencies in providing information to assist in the determination of what and who caused various accidents as well as tracking down hit and run drivers that caused an accident and then fled the scene.
Our blog has provided a forum for readers to express their well wishes to those involved in accidents, to comment about the accident, to share their feelings and to update all readers on new developments in a case.
Regularly we hear from attorneys who are representing the parties involved in accidents commented upon in our blog who request our assistance. They seek our insight into a particular case or more information about a theory of liability that we have expressed. Many of these attorneys are not highly experienced in personal injury, auto defects or product liability cases and are simply seeking assistance from us so that they may better serve their clients. We welcome the opportunity to assist.
We welcome comments about our blogs. If, for any reason, innocent victims or their immediate family wish their names removed from our blogs, we will do so upon the written email or traditional mail request from an immediate family member.
We receive emails thanking us for this service as well as attacking us for providing it. We are not immune to personal attacks by those who disagree with our positions or our methods. However, the hurt of the personal attacks is outweighed by knowing we are providing a valuable service to people in one of their times of greatest need. We would rather suffer the personal attacks than to see accident victims taken advantage of for lack of knowledge or resources.
