The Consequences of a T-Bone Accident

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on September 30, 2020

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on March 19, 2020

While our dreams of flying cars are still just that, the rise of electric vehicles is upon us. With both the advancement of hybrids and fully electric cars, consumers have more environmentally friendly and cost-efficient options when shopping for a car.
