August 2017- Legal Snapshot
Hello from Adams & Cross, LLC! Read our legal snapshot for August below.
11 USC §523(a)(2)(C) creates a presumption against discharge of any debt of more than $500 incurred for luxury goods within 90 days of a bankruptcy filing. Cash advances of more than $750 within 70 days of filing are also presumed to be nondischargable.
Personal Injury -
A trailer hitch on a vehicle has been shown to significantly increase the risk of neck and back injury in a rear-end crash. A bumper absorbs some of an impact before pushing a car forward, but a trailer hitch is usually tied into the frame and not only results in an immediate move forward but often a magnified move. It is like the difference between having an empty Coke can or a frozen Coke can between you and an impact.
Bankruptcy and personal injury case referrals are always appreciated.
