You Can’t Always Predict an Accident, but You Can Prepare for One

| November 2, 2010 | Comments (0)

I speak with people everyday who never thought “it” would happen to them.  This is a normal feeling amongst people of all walks of life.  Young or old, rich or poor – we all want to believe that we are invincible –that nothing bad will ever happen.  Whether that be an illness, an accident at work or a car wreck on the way to school in the morning.

Unfortunately, the truth is that we don’t get to choose when an accident happens.  In reality, at the end of the day, our well being and safety isn’t just in our hands.  

A somber thought for sure.  But every time you get behind the wheel of a car, your safety is in the hands of other drivers you share the road with.  Every time you step into a hospital, clinic or pharmacy, you’re no longer solely in control of your well being.

I firmly believe that while you cannot avoid accidents altogether, you CAN be prepared for one.  Proper education can oftentimes help you avoid a terrible situation altogether.  This is why our firm goes to great lengths to educate people on accident prevention and safety.

Much of the content and information we publish on our sites, in our newsletters and on Facebook and Twitter is geared toward accident prevention.  Whether it is about safe driving, choosing the correct nursing home, or recognizing the early signs of daycare abuse, it’s about prevention.

Unfortunately, education can’t always prevent all accidents from happening.  If something does happen, it’s important to be educated on how to react and protect yourself from manipulative insurance adjusters.

Insurance companies bank on the premise that you won’t be educated or prepared in the event that something happens.  They want you to be in the dark.  It is their job to cloud the picture and talk you into foregoing what you deserve in order for them to keep money in their pockets.  You beat them by knowing your rights before they even have a chance to take advantage of the situation.

Our main site,, is packed with videos, blogs and articles about the many different accidents, how to avoid them, and what to do if you have been in one.  In addition, we have several other specialized sites to address specific issues, such as and

On top of our sites, I have published four different books (with more to come) and numerous reports – all with the aim of hopefully educating people on what to do if something does happen.

This is all provided for free to anybody who is proactive and wants to educate themselves about their rights.

In the end, I sincerely hope that anybody who is reading this newsletter never needs an attorney.  The individuals and families that we represent come to us because something awful or tragic has happened and I would never wish that upon anyone.  In the event that something does happen, myself and the rest of Rasansky Law Firm will always be here to help.

Hopefully, you take the opportunity to utilize all of the information that we have made and will make available.  Visit one of our many sites:

You never know what article, blog or video will give you the insight to avoid a bad accident or situation.  Of course you are also encouraged to contact our firm anytime you cannot find the information you are looking for on any of our websites.
