    So what, he smashed a tree.
    This man at least has a good excuse. (whereas incompetent sober drivers who cause most accidents do not)

      WTH are you talking about?
      Drinking and driving is NOT an excuse….it’s nothing but stupid, selfish behavior that will get someone killed.

    no injuries — time to remind everyone that victims of an auto accident should feel gauged by auto accident attorneys who have the gall to charge 1/3 of the settlement, for getting the settlement, for an auto accident. Just because every attorney charges 1/3 doesn’t mean its not gauging. Why isn’t this fee disclosed on their websites? Why don’t attorneys disclose their fees on their websites? They’re not charging different clients different amounts, are they?
