Legal Nuggets- Moving to a New Disaster
Evidence is increasing that undertaking a “do it yourself” move can be hazardous to your health. I’m not referring to the risk of hurting your back lifting heavy furniture. I am talking about getting injured or killed in a automobile/truck/trailer collision. In the last decade there have been more and more serious accidents caused by poorly maintained rental trucks and trailers. There have also been terrible wrecks caused by improper towing of trailers as a result of poor advice and bad match-ups of cars with trailers.
You need to be very cautious when towing a trailer, renting a truck or trailer, or otherwise being involved in a do-it-yourself move. However, if you or anyone you know gets injured when engaging in this type of activity, please feel free to contact me for a free consultation about your legal rights and remedies.
