Who are the Shriners and How Can They Help My Family After a Personal Injury Accident?

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Personal Injury Attorney. You likely recognize them by their red fez caps and the little cars they drive in local parades. They are the Shiners – members of the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine for North America – and over 600,000 individuals in the United States and Canada belong to this international fraternity. But Shriners do more than drive funny-looking cars and wear peculiar garb: members of the Shrine are committed philanthropists who support specialized hospitals that provide free medical care to children.

South Sacramento Hit and Run
South Sacramento Hit and Run

I’m Ed Smith. I am a South Sacramento Pedestrian Accident Lawyer.  On Saturday, December 19, 2015, a 17-year-old girl was struck by a South Sacramento hit and run driver at the intersection of Fruitridge Road and Vista Avenue. The light had just indicated it was her turn to walk when she was hit by what looked to be a 2002 or 2003 Toyota Solara. The car was headed east on Fruitridge Road. It failed to stop for a red light. The dark colored vehicle (possibly blue) hit the girl sending her up into the air and then landing back onto the street.

Student Safety
Student Safety

When we send our children off to school we think they are going to be protected by those in authority over them. Keeping our children safe while they attend school is at the forefront of most parents minds these days. We see how Los Angeles County responded to credible threats of terrorism today. They closed down approximately 1000 schools. Approximately 640,000 Los Angeles County students were told to stay home. This after receiving credible threats of harm at LA area schools.

We applaud LA County for putting student safety first. We are sure most parents are grateful for that level of caution. But, what do we do when those in authority over our children are not interested in student safety?
