While hairline cracks may seem insignificant to young adults, these can be difficult for the elderly who lack the ability to mend quickly. Read the rest »

Unfortunately, patience is what you’ll need. In any intersection car accident, both parties must comply with a police report, and if significant injuries occur, there will likely be a lengthy investigation.
