March Crash Madness

David S. Adams March 11, 2021

Personal Injury - Spring is in the air and crazy, young love abounds. Young lovers beware.  Here are some stats:

  • 21% of teen drivers involved in a car accident were distracted by cell phones.

  • a teen driver with a passenger is twice as likely to be involved in a fatal car accident.

  • Men are 4 times more likely to drink and drive, while women are more likely to text and drive.

  • about 9 people are killed every day due to crashes involving a distracted driver.

Bankruptcy - an engaged person who needs to file bankruptcy should probably get that done prior to the marriage, as combined marital income will be used after marriage to determine eligibility to file. The non-filing partner is not usually affected by the filing partner (even after marriage), as credit scores are kept independent to each person. If both partners need to file, then filing after a marriage provides a two-for-the-price-of-one benefit.
