Busy roads may mean more auto accidents during the holidays

The holiday season has arrived, which means Arizona drivers will be sharing the roads with more people than at other times of the year.

Drivers may benefit by focusing on how to share the roads safely with others during the holiday season.

GM products could trigger new auto product liability claims

Those who have suffered injuries due to a defective vehicle component may have a basis for filing an auto product liability claim.
