An insurance adjuster is an individual who investigates claims and determines whether someone is owed compensation and, if so, how much. You will speak to at least two insurance adjusters—one from the other driver’s auto insurer and one from your own—after the accident.
The insurance company is not your friend. They will seek to limit their own liability at every turn, starting with whatever information they can draw out of you. If you’ve been injured in a car crash through no fault of your own, you’ll need to know what not to say to an insurance adjuster after an accident.
If there’s one detail about driving that all motorists should keep in mind, it’s an activity requiring all drivers to do their part to keep our roadways safe here in Marion, IL. All motor vehicle operators, including passenger car drivers, motorcyclists, and truckers, must understand how their vehicles function and each other’s driving behaviors to accommodate each other better.

So many semi truck accidents happen because truckers don’t apply what they’ve learned about how their tractor-trailers function in the classroom when out on the road.

This article will explore what all motorists should know to reduce semi truck accidents.

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is located on the Atlantic coast of North Carolina. For a period of more than 30 years, the drinking water at the base was contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) known to cause cancer, birth defects, and other serious health conditions.
The recent passage of the Camp Lejeune Justice Act created a legal avenue to file a lawsuit against the U.S. government for anyone who was affected by exposure to the base’s contaminated water. At Prince Law Firm, we understand that many of the veterans we meet with are concerned about what this type of lawsuit might mean for their future.
As a parent, there are few things more important in life than preparing to welcome the birth of a child. When a doctor’s negligent, reckless, or wrongful actions cause your child to suffer, you may be left wondering: Is birth injury preventable?

Turn on the news, especially at a time of the year like the spring and summer when temperatures are often suitable for dog owners to leave their pets outside. You’ll hear many stories about furry friends attacking people unexpectedly. You might realize that one sign of a rabid dog is that they indiscriminately walk up to humans and attack them. However, you might also think that there’s no way in which all the dogs mentioned in the stories you hear have rabies.
As you may suspect, dogs don’t have to be suffering from the behavior-altering and deadly neurological condition rabies to lead them to approach and potentially attack us humans. Dogs may become aggressive and lash out for various other reasons. They generally send warning signs before lashing out and attacking. Knowing the signs to look for may save you from suffering potentially life-threatening injuries.
There are few better ways to escape the summer heat in Illinois than by going for a swim. Whether you choose to spend your day at a public pool or a friend’s backyard pool, your attempt to cool off could ultimately prove to be dangerous.
You are at risk for much more than just a sunburn when you go swimming. Some of the most common swimming pool injuries can send you or your child to the emergency room. Every year, our slip and fall lawyers see an increase in swimming injuries during the hot summer months. At Prince Law Firm, we want everyone to be safe, so we’ve compiled information on the most common swimming pool injuries and what you can do to limit your risk of being hurt while swimming.
Driving next to large trucks on I-57 can be stressful, but sharing a city road with a tractor-trailer is an entirely different game. Lanes are much smaller when traveling through urban areas of Marion, and drivers are often expected to navigate tight turns. Those narrow lanes and tight turns can be even more complicated to traverse when you are driving alongside a large truck.
Smaller motor vehicles are at a distinct disadvantage when sharing the road with big trucks. The attorneys at Prince Law Firm have seen time and time again how truck accidents can happen when a driver makes a wide turn.
When a truck driver is involved in an accident, attorneys often research the driver’s employer records as part of their investigation on behalf of a motorist who was hurt in a truck crash. This is because a trucker or its employers can be held liable for accidents that occur.
