The Best Holiday Gift For the Entrepreneur In Your Life!


The holidays are here! What are you getting the entrepreneur and online business owner (EOBO) in your life?

Here’s a suggestion. How about something that every EOBO needs but probably doesn’t have? How about a unique and thoughtful gift your EOBO can’t live without, whether he or she knows it or not?

What I’m talking about is a LegalShield membership.

What’s this? Well, for less than the price of a cup of coffee per day, your EOBO can have a top-rated law firm in his or her corner to help with everyday business needs. Legal advice, answers to legal questions, document reviews, letters, phone calls, feedback, advice, and so much more are only a click, phone call or meeting away.

Look, I’ve been practicing law for 30 years and am a big fan of this fantastic service, especially for all of my clients and friends who are EOBOs. I even wrote about this service earlier this year here.

If you’d like to give your EOBO the ultimate stocking stuffer this holiday season, give him or her a LegalShield plan. If your EOBO has a home-based business, then take a look at the personal or family plan and add the home business supplement. If your EOBO is doing business out of a traditional small office, then the small business plan is the way to go.

Put a smile on the face of the EOBO in your family this holiday season. Click here to learn more and get started. Also feel free to reach out with any questions!

What a Distracted Driving Case Looks Like

Our client is a victim of distracted driving.

In only a second or two, her life was turned upside down after being struck by a distracted driver. It can happen to you too.

She did nothing wrong and is an innocent victim. Here’s what happend.

As she did every night after getting home from work, our client was lawfully walking across the parking lot driveway at her townhouse complex to get the mail. When she started to cross, there were no cars.

Just before making it all the way across the driveway, a vehicle entered the parking area from the main street and approached our client from the left. Our client observed the drivers head looking down (probably at her phone). In the next second or two, our client watched the vehicle approach and strike her as she turned to the side to try and avoid the collision.

The driver testified during her deposition that she never saw our client before the impact. Our client testified during her deposition that the driver never looked up before the impact. I think we all know what happened and why.

Because of the driver’s careless conduct, our client sustained catastrophic injuries including a devastating fracture to her right tibial plateau, an L1 compression fracture to her back, a left knee ligament tear, a left foot 5th MT fracture, a left foot abrasion- eschar with an open wound and right medial heel eschar.

The distracted driver is not accepting responsibility for her negligent actions and we are set for trial in 2018. We are confident an Orange County jury will hold the negligent driver responsible and render a verdict that will help our client pay for all of her medical bills, compensate her for her pain and suffering, and in the end, find justice.

Our client asked us to share her story with you. She wants distracted drivers to know how dangerous their intentional self-centered conduct is. Before being hit, our client was an active and healthy human being who enjoyed life to its fullest. Today, it’s difficult for her to walk, sit and stand without pain.

Several pictures of our client’s injuries are included in this post. They tell the story better than we can.

More Reasons Why We Have a Zero Tolerance with Distracted Drivers

As many of you know, Lisa and I have been practicing law for 30 years. Because of the devastation we’ve personally observed families experience from drunk and distracted driving, we’ve made it our mission to raise awareness and try to fix these two big problems.

Many people are not aware of the fact that distracted driving is a huge public safety issue. Each year 4,000 to 6,000 people are killed, and another 400,000-600,000 people are injured because of distracted driving. To put these numbers into perspective, about 280,000 people are injured each year from drunk driving.

Every single second during daylight hours in the United States, there are 600,000 people driving a vehicle with a mobile device in their hands. Another incredible statistic is that each of these 600,000 distracted drivers who are looking down at their smartphone is spending an average of 3-5 seconds doing so. Traveling at 55 mph, that’s like traveling the length of a football field while blindfolded in a 2-4 ton missile.

The problem of distracted driving is getting worse each day. Look to your left and right the next time you drive to work, drop your kids off at soccer, or are stopped at a red light. Watch social media posts on Instagram, Facebook Live and Periscope. What’s happening is inexcusable and not OK. People are getting hurt and families are losing loved ones. This reckless conduct needs to stop.

Conclusion

Distracted driving hurts innocent victims. It’s killing people every sing day.

Please don’t be a distracted driver. Please don’t look the other way and let others participate in distracted driving.
