  • When Personal Injury is on the Bill

    America loves to be entertained. One study found that the average household spends almost $2,500 a month on entertainment, with a large percentage going just to fees and admissions. Sporting events, concerts, theatre events, expos – just some of the many activities going on around town at any given time.
