Share the Road! Get Your Free Sticker and Promote Safety for Cyclists

Summer is in full swing and cyclists are out in force. Unfortunately, bicycles and cars don’t always play well together. As an avid cyclist myself, and as a trial lawyer with a specialty in handling car/bike crash cases, I’ve seen first-hand what can happen when cyclists have run-ins with 3,000 pounds of steel and rubber… read more →

Celebrating “Hands-Free” – National Distracted Driving Awareness

April is National Distracted Driving Awareness month, and New Hampshire’s new “hands-free” law is almost one year old: do you know what it says? Like most statutes, the actual text of the “hands-free” law is not exactly a model of clarity, but if you want to read it, it is known as RSA 265:79-c and.. read more →

What Can I Do About Drivers Who Don’t Have Insurance?

I recently wrote about New Hampshire drivers who don’t have car insurance because New Hampshire’s so-called “financial responsibility law” does not require them to.

Is a car crash my fault if I say “I’m sorry”?

You hear on it on TV all the time:  “anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.”  That holds true in the world of car crashes and accidents as well. Although simply saying “I’m sorry” does not prove that you were at fault for a crash, your statement,.. read more →

Should I call the police for a “fender-bender”?

After being involved in what seems like a minor “fender-bender”, most people would do the usual exchange of information but would think that it wasn’t worth the trouble of calling the police.  After all, nobody was hurt. But the fact is that a good percentage of crashes that seem to be minor result in injury,.. read more →

There is no such thing as an accident.

Words are funny things.  Sure, they have a specific  meaning that you can look up in a dictionary, but in everyday usage, they can take on different meanings altogether. The word “accident” is a great example.  Technically, it simply means any unintended event, usually with undesirable consequences.  Some accidents just happen, with no one at.. read more →
