Personal injury is one of the most common types of lawsuits filed all across the United States. Part of the reason why is because personal injury covers such a wide range of lawsuits.

James Feldkamp – Why it is Never Too Late To Go Traveling

I have loved travel for many years and alongside my buddy James Feldkamp we have visited some of the world’s most incredible places. Something which has always annoyed me a little about the topic of traveling is that for some reason people believe that it is only something which young people should be doing, before starting their life in the ‘real world’. The notion is that people can go for a fortnight on the beach once they live in the ‘real world’ but they cannot take 3 months out to go traveling around Europe. In my view it is never…
