I completed my ALS Ice Bucket Challenge yesterday at Lake Lanier Island Waterpark, in honor of my mother in law, that passed away to ALS. Our firm also donated $1,000 to the ALS Association. Video of the event to come!
And now I challenge Ken Nugent, David Montlick & John Foy to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Atlanta, join me, Attorney Neil Flit, tomorrow at 11 am at the Lake Lanier Islands. I will take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge under the large bucket they have at their water park. ALS is something I'm all too familiar with, as my mother suffered from the disease and I'm pleased to see so much awareness is taking place for this cause.
See you tomorrow at 11 am!

Before you can recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses resulting from a car wreck, you must prove that the other party was at fault for the accident. Since personal injury law can be quite complex, it’s advisable to work with a veteran auto accident attorney. Your lawyer can explain the applicable regulations in your state, investigate your case, and find evidence that proves the other driver was at fault for the crash
Rules of the Road
When your personal injury lawyer reviews your case, he or she will evaluate the actions of the other driver to determine if they could have violated state traffic laws. For example, the other driver may have failed to yield right of way, made an unsafe left-hand turn, or driven recklessly. Often, drivers are found at fault for accidents because they were found to be texting or talking on a cellphone at the time of the crash, which may violate your state’s distracted driving laws.
Types of Collisions
With certain types of collisions, the other driver is almost always held at fault. For example, if the other driver caused a rear-end collision, he or she would likely be considered at fault automatically. Additionally, the other driver is likely to be found liable if he or she was making a left-hand turn in front of you, provided you were traveling in the opposite direction and were not speeding through the intersection.
Police Reports for the Crash
Your personal injury lawyer will contact the police department to obtain the official report of the crash. A police report is an important piece of evidence in proving the fault of the other driver. For example, the officer might have noted that the other driver was distracted at the time of the crash or had been speeding.
Even if you could have been partially to blame for an auto accident, you could still be eligible to file a personal injury claim and recover compensation for your injuries. However, time is of the essence; contact the personal injury team at the Law Office of Neil Flit right away to file a claim before the statute of limitations expires.

Traffic safety is a significant concern for parents. In addition to teaching your child the rules of the road, you can reduce the risk that he or she will be involved in a car wreck by selecting the safest vehicle possible. Although parents often purchase older vehicles for their teens, experts recommend purchasing newer models instead because they are typically equipped with more safety features. Some important safety features to look for include side airbags and electronic stability control.

Auto accident injuries run the gamut from minor problems such as bumps and scrapes to major medical issues such as traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and fractures. Even a minor fender bender can cause serious injuries, such as chronic pain resulting from whiplash. If you’ve been involved in a car wreck, contact an auto accident attorney right away to learn about the compensation you could be entitled to. Your personal injury lawyer can explain the difference between compensation for tangible losses, such as property damage, and compensation for your pain and suffering.
What is Pain and Suffering?
Personal injury claims for an auto accident demand compensation for tangible or measurable losses, such as medical expenses, property damage, reduced value of a vehicle, and lost wages due to injuries. Victims of auto accidents can also be compensated for pain and suffering, which refers to both physical pain and emotional anguish. Although proving pain and suffering may be a little more difficult when the auto accident was minor, a skilled personal injury lawyer can recover this type of compensation. Pain and suffering can involve past pain, expected pain in the future, pain associated with medical treatment in addition to the injury itself, emotional distress, and even inconvenience. Damages can be awarded for a reduction in a victim’s quality of life.
How is Pain and Suffering Determined?
The personal injury lawyer will bring up a number of factors to prove pain and suffering to a jury. The extent and severity of your injuries are significant factors when calculating pain and suffering. However, a jury can also consider the inconvenience of all of the treatments and therapies you require for your recovery. The jury will also consider the permanence of the injuries. For example, even minor lacerations to the face can result in permanent, disfiguring scars that reduce a claimant’s quality of life.
The personal injury lawyers of the Law Office of Neil Flit are dedicated to providing aggressive representation for our clients. Our auto accident attorneys will advocate tirelessly on your behalf to ensure you get the maximum compensation for your injuries and losses.
