The Law Applies to All

I know that pop singing sensation Britney Spears has many following but just recently, various reports pertaining to her several legal violations came out. Around 9 p.m. of October 15, 2007, she presented herself to the Los Angeles police authorities to face charges of hit and run and driving without a valid license.

Now, what is the sense of this story?

If you are one of those injured victims of neglectful and imprudent drivers, this may give you the courage of also filing your own case regardless of how popular or powerful the liable party is. The rule of law applies to all and no citizen is above it even those people whom we idolize and pay our respect.

The legal action done by Kim Robard-Rifkin, the owner of the car that was allegedly hit by Spears after trying to escape paparazzi, should be commended. This I think is the proper way of dealing with an auto accident case – having such determination to defend your rights as victims.

The law entitles the injured victims of such recoveries to cover the level of damages and losses that they have suffered from others offense. It ensures the victims will be properly paid to ease their further sufferings from expensive medical treatments and loss of earnings. However, it all depends on them – whether they file their cases or not.

Thus, if you also live in L.A. and you have been injured in an accident, it is important to set aside your hesitations and immediately pick from those credible Los Angeles court attorneys for proper assistance. It is not a question of how severe the damages are and how much you can gain from such charges but the real substance is how you have defended your rights.

Furthermore, having those irresponsible motorists punished for their misbehavior will lessen their possibilities of hurting other innocent people in the future.
