According to a poll recently conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, only 22 percent of respondents are confident that they can successfully research and compare the quality of healthcare providers in their area. This poll confirms that Americans feel that due to their own limitations, due to limited resources or both, it is difficult to find and compare the quality of care that physicians provide.
A number of high-profile international plane crashes have occurred in recent months. The causes of these crashes are numerous and some causes are still unknown. With so many tragic crashes being reported on by the media, it is understandable that many American travelers are questioning the current state of aviation in California, nationwide and abroad.
If you have been hit by a large commercial truck, chances are that you have sustained both property damage and physical injury as a result of the crash. A staggering number of truck accidents involving large commercial trucks occur annually on American roads and many, if not most, of these accidents cause lasting harm to those affected by them. As a result, many victims of these kinds of accidents choose to file personal injury lawsuits in order to pursue damages in connection with the harm they have suffered. In the case of fatal accidents, loved ones of the deceased often choose to file related claims.

However, this release is decidedly unique for one reason.
