Tucson Economy Booster

As the economy continues to inch its way back up to “normal” standards, one of boosts it might be getting in southern Arizona is a new outlet mall.

I personally think that this will be a great addition to the Tucson economy. Phoenix has 2 massive outlet malls for a reason… people love them!

The outlet mall, will be located on Twin Peaks Road near Interstate 10, will be just a portion of the overall 170-acre Marana Center.

The mall is due to open in October, which is perfect for the busy holiday shopping season…

Although some are skeptical that a new mall will help boost the economy here in southern Arizona, others are Tucsonans are excited.

I’m sure this will provide a significant amount of job opportunities for the Tucson community which is fantastic.

HEAD INJURIES IN ATHLETES

Some of you have probably have heard about the recent interest and the investigation of the head injuries and the damage that they cause in NFL and other league’s football players.

I’m a grandfather and a godparent to two awesome 7 year old boys who love sports and football. As a personal injury attorney I have to be cautious about injuries that can occur, especially because of all the recent news on head injuries in athletes.

 

As schools are starting back up in the fall and the football season and practice picks back up in August for the different football leagues, I decided that it’s the right time to have a conversation about head injuries in athletes.

On this episode of Zanes Law Personal Injury Legal Tips, I discuss the topic of head injuries in athletes in hope that that information will be valuable to the parents of the kids who either are or want to get involved with football, hockey, boxing, MMA or other sports where players receive concussions.

Listen in to discover some eye-opening research that has been done on the players’ brains who have passed away to help you decide whether you want your child getting involved with a sport where brain trauma is very likely to occur.

Involved in a multi-victim auto accident where you were not at-fault, or even a driver?

Recently, I spoke with a concerned father who called in with a scenario that I was prepared and experienced to advise on. His daughter had been seriously injured in an accident that also injured seven other people in a multiple car pile-up. The twist was that his daughter was the passenger in the vehicle that caused the whole accident. To make matters worse, the driver of the vehicle was not the owner of the car.

Diminished Vehicle Value: Necessary Steps to Filing Your Claim

When you’ve been involved in a car accident, it’s essential to remember that the damage done to your vehicle has decreased its value. Even after your vehicle is repaired, it still won’t be worth as much as you may like when you try to sell or trade it in. This being said, it’s imperative to have a good understanding of diminished value claims.

Dr. Carrion’s passion for all things chiropractic comes from an injury he experienced in a car accident as a teenager. After seeing multiple specialists and suffering from back pain for years, Dr. Carrion found that a chiropractor was the right doctor to help him.

Four tips for handling public transportation accidents

In most major cities, there is a public transportation system; our own Arizona cities of Tucson and Phoenix have a streetcar and light rail system. While public transportation provides a convenient and cost-effective way for residents and visitors to get around, it can also be the cause of accidents. Public transportation systems are run by a public transportation authority. This is an important point for me to share because the way accidents are handled makes litigation processes more complex and different than personal injury accidents.
