Motorcycle crash
Riding a motorcycle is thrilling. The wind gushing through the hair and the fast momentum on a clear road is an experience that every motorcycle rider wants to enjoy—at least once, if not frequently. Although it is super exciting to ride a motorcycle, it is, at the same time, challenging, especially if you have an accident. Since it lacks proper safety, injuries are likely to be severe, resulting in multiple surgeries, costly medical treatments, and a long recovery time, which can last for weeks- sometimes even months and years, mainly if it results in a temporary disability paralysis.

All of this can burden you financially. That’s precisely why the law gives you the right to file a motorcycle accident claim so that you can pursue the compensation you need to seek proper treatment and get on the road to recovery. However, the worst-case scenario is when your claim gets declined and rejected.

COVID-19
Coronavirus, also known as, COVID-19, is a novel respiratory pandemic that is infecting people around the world. As there is no vaccine as yet for Coronavirus, it thus is extremely dangerous. The best way so far as determined by the World Health Organization is to take precautions such as stay at home, social distance, and hand wash frequently. Where many people are taking these precautionary measures seriously, for the working class staying at home is perhaps not a practical option. This applies especially for those who can’t bring work to their homes and thus must go to work.

The number of COVID-19 infected people and deaths has truly crippled the country’s economy, including the states of North Carolina and South Carolina. The increase in the death toll due to Coronavirus daily has raised concerns among workers across industries and left them in confusion, and South Carolina is no different. According to the latest statistics, the confirmed cases for COVID-19 in South Carolina totaled 5,253. However, the COVID-19 related death toll in the state so far is 166. The highest numbers of new cases that have been reported recently in South Carolina include the following counties:

Every day in the US, nearly nine people die and over a 1000 get injured in accidents that are reported to have a distracted driver. In 2018, accidents due to distracted driving cost the US around 40 billion dollars in damage.

The hallmark of a free enterprise system is a structure where individuals are free to set the pricing on the products they sell.  It is then up to buyers to determine if that is an acceptable price.  In theory, if the price is too high, then buyers won’t buy and the seller will either have to lower their price or wait until the market changes.  Generally, markets change over time and pricing is usually determined by supply and demand.
