Testimonial – Title IX – Sami

I have the highest regard for Michael Contant and his associates at Contant Law. I found myself in an unfortunate situation and a legal uphill battle, Michael was constantly reassuring and consistently demonstrated a sense of control over the situation. Michael acted not only as my legal representation but also as a friend and was available at any time of the day to address any of my concerns or issues regarding the case. In some of the most stressful situations I have ever experienced my mind was at ease knowing that Michael and his associates were working tirelessly to provide me with the best outcome possible.

Testimonial – Juvenile – Angela

Michael helped us dealing with an issue with our youngest son. Mike spoke directly with him, and let our son know he was working for him. I appreciated how Mike was very direct, yet conscious of his age, 12. He has helped walk us through the “system” since it was our first, and hopefully, last. Mike was a great advocate for our whole family, and really made the whole experience for me less scary. I appreciate his professionalism and the care he shows for the families with whom he works.

From my first conversation I knew that Mike Contant would be able to walk me through the process and ensure that my needs were met as he listened very attentively. With kindness, care and concern he explained my options and guided me through an extremely difficult time in my life.

The Holidays Can Be Dangerous

Holiday Traffic AccidentsThe holidays are here again, and while it may be the most wonderful time of the year, ‘tis also the season for keeping our wits about us.

Unfortunately (and ironically), holidays see some of the highest rates of auto accidents and personal injuries throughout the entire year. Too many families end up spending their long-awaited Thanksgivings or Christmas Eves inside a hospital waiting room, and that’s something we don’t want anyone in our community to endure this year.

So which holidays are the most dangerous? And what can you do to protect yourselves?

According to U.S.A. Today, Memorial Day and the Fourth of July are the two most dangerous holidays for auto accidents in the United States.

Thanksgiving isn’t far behind, though, coming in at #3. Labor Day is at #4, New Year’s Eve at #5, and Christmas Day at #6. Reasons cited for the uptick in accidents during these times of celebration and remembrance include:

  • Increased alcohol use
  • Families traveling, often on unfamiliar roads
  • Inclement weather conditions during the winter holidays
  • Time off of work, resulting in a greater number of drivers on the roads

Of course, auto accidents aren’t the only yuletide concerns. Forbes lists a few other accidents that rear their ugly heads with surprising frequency around this time of year:

  • House fires, often caused by overcooked turkeys or overly dry Christmas trees
  • Electrical fires (holiday lights around the rooftop caused the Griswolds their fair share of problems, and they can do the same for you!)
  • Winter sports injuries

We might also add that slip and fall injuries become a real concern in retail outlets during this time of year. With so many people rushing through so many stores, it is important that storeowners and managers exercise due care to keep their property conditions safe for all who enter.

The holidays are a special time, and they’re meant to be enjoyed safely. We wish you all a happy Thanksgiving and a festive season to come thereafter. If you have questions about any mishaps that might arise over the next couple of months, just know that we’re here for you. Until then, may your days be merry and bright!
