Most of us understand the importance of seatbelts. In fact, 90% of Americans do wear seatbelts every time they take a ride. Unfortunately, that leaves 27.5 million people who don’t. That’s a startling fact, considering that the simple act of buckling up is the best way to ensure your safety in the event of a car accident.
At Steven Titus & Associates, P.C., we believe it’s important to give back. That’s why we’re once again holding our Find Your Path Scholarship. We want to help students find their path, and for many of them, college plays a big part in that. We’re offering $500 to one eligible student who applies before May 28, 2019.
The bubonic plague is the stuff of nightmares. This disease was responsible for some of the darkest times in human history. But it’s not something we have to worry about in the 21st century, right?
There’s no doubt that Wyoming is one of the best places in the country to hunt. With our beautiful scenery and abundance of wildlife, it truly is a hunter’s dream. More and more people have been discovering this as, once again, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department is announcing a significant increase the number of hunting applications.
While this is good news for the state and for the hunters lucky enough to grab a license, it could spell trouble unless safety is a priority.
Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft are a cheap and convenient way to get around town, but how safe are they—really? One of the first things we are taught, as children, is to never get into a stranger’s car. But, isn’t that, essentially, what you’re doing when you get a ride from an Uber or Lyft driver?
Insurance is a part of our everyday lives. It’s a way for you to protect against unforeseen events, whether a car wreck, a health emergency, or a fire in the home. Based on the many, many insurance commercials on TV, it would seem like insurance companies are only concerned with helping us in our time of need.
The reality is insurance companies are among the largest, wealthiest corporations in the world. In our years of practicing law in Gillette, we’ve seen countless insurance companies put their bottom line ahead of the welfare of their clients.
A lifelong Gillette resident got “a Christmas bonus” in early December 2018, when she followed clues to a lone blue spruce tree in McNanneman Park. There, she found a hidden gavel that was worth $2,500 in cash!
There are federal laws, and then there are the state laws. These laws are created by state legislatures and can vary from state to state, but most laws are logical. While a statute on robbery in California may differ slightly from the statute in Wyoming, both still make sense.
Sometimes, though, there are laws on the books that do not make any sense at all. These generally remain from a time when they, too, were considered practical laws. In most cases, people simply forgot about them or never bothered to remove them.
Cody Night Rodeo, Jackson Hole Rodeo, and Cheyenne Frontier Days are just a few of the most popular rodeos that take place in and around Wyoming. Cowboys are riding bulls, riding bucking broncos, making dangerous turns, roping cattle, and more. It’s a risky business, but rodeos aren’t just dangerous for the people in the ring. Spectators in attendance can also be hurt, as has been seen in too many rodeo accidents.
Living in Wyoming, we’re used to encounters with wildlife, whether in State Parks or in our own backyards. We understand that it can be dangerous to interact with even the cutest animals. This is not always the case with out-of-towners, though, and it’s not unusual to read news stories about park visitors who fail to follow regulations and end up getting themselves hurt or arrested. Or both.
