historical resources available in the college's library.

Wermuth joined the Marist College faculty as an assistant professor of

Common Mistakes after a Car Accident

Written By Editor on 3/5/17 | 3/5/17

By Michael Ehline

While many drivers are careful, a car accident changes things dramatically. Even the most cautious driver can make rash decisions, especially if they or a loved one is injured. Often, the most desired aspect a crash victim seeks is normalcy. In other words, they just want their life the way that it was.

This can cause a number of issues. One is because of the way the insurance system works. Insurance adjusters' jobs are to be as discerning as possible with claims. This means that in many cases, companies toss out legit claims. Many insurance companies pressure their clients into taking the lowest amount of money possible. In others, bad faith insurers refuse to pay out at all.

Often these different concerns are caused by common mistakes made by drivers after a crash. One is to accept an offer from their insurance company without consulting their attorney first. Furthermore, some drivers do not document the scene of the accident. Taking photos and including notes from the scene establish what happen. Victims and their attorneys interview witnesses to get a fuller picture. In some cases attorneys work with accident reconstructionists to lay out the whole situation. All of these have their own place in the overall picture.

Many crash victims don't think far enough ahead. Often long term costs, including rehabilitation are ignored. Furthermore, many do not realize the trauma of pain and suffering following a crash. Many aspects of an accident cannot be fully realized until after. Thus, in some cases the family of the injured see a very different lifestyle. A skilled attorney helps reduce the chances of such tragedies.

Michael Ehline is a leading car accident expert. He writes this column for the Mountain Eagle as a means to better educate the public. Contact him at michael@ehlinelaw.com.

The Mayor's Nest

Seeking Volunteers for Local Office

Across the region, the signs of election season will be popping up all over. In this case, it will likely be literal signs. Some of the villages and most of the school districts will hold elections this spring. At the town and county levels, gears are already turning toward fall races.

While some of the races can get nasty, they’re most often unopposed. In some cases, there are no other candidates, but in many there should be more involvement. The first race I ran in the Village of Middleburgh in 2006 saw about a 9% voter turnout. (Editor’s note: I lost) Many of the other races see similar low turnout, especially if they’re not in November.

What’s the solution? Well, voting certainly helps but that is just a portions. Getting involved in local efforts is a major step up. There are multiple appointed boards needing members, including Planning, Zoning, Assessment, and more. For some, there is a chance to run for office to make the area a better place. If you’re over 18 and have a heart and drive to improve your community, it’s might be just the job for you.

It’s not hard to run for local office. In most cases, it involves getting a number of signatures or attending a caucus. Winning, on the other hand, is not as simple. A campaign can be strenuous and teach you a lot about yourself and the people of the community. I know I’ve made lifelong friends and even family through the people I’ve met over the last decade.

Of course, there are some drawbacks: late night meetings, little or no pay, and making tough decisions, but each come with the territory. It’s also a chance to leave your town, village, school, or more better than you found it.

If you’re thinking about it-- go for it!
