Noble McIntyre on October 14, 2014

You hear every day in the news about huge numbers of vehicles being recalled – sometimes the defects are small, but other times they can be serious and could affect the safety of your vehicle if not corrected.

Have you been a Victim of Bad Faith Insurance?

Jeremy Thurman on September 23, 2014

Anyone who owns a car or home is required to have an insurance policy. For your vehicle, you’re insured so that in the event of an accident or other loss, the policy will cover the cost of the vehicle, your medical expenses and the expenses incurred by the other party if you’re found to have been at fault in a collision.
