Reeder & Nussbaum hosts “Ask A Lawyer Day: Auto Insurance 101” on Feb. 15

Would your insurance cover your expenses if you were in an automobile accident?  What does your policy actually entitle you to? What would you owe out of pocket?  What happens if the other driver does not have sufficient auto insurance?

The experienced attorneys at the personal injury and wrongful death law firm of Reeder & Nussbaum, P.A., will host an “Ask A Lawyer Day” to answer questions about automobile  crashes and how the insurance industry works from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Feb. 15 at their St. Petersburg law office, 2201 4th Street North, Suite G.

Many times, people involved in automobile crashes, motorcycle accidents or other painful situations don’t know whether they have a legal case.  As part of their commitment to giving back to the community, attorneys Andrew Reeder and Marc Nussbaum invite you to ask your questions about your insurance coverage and what recourse you would have should you be involved in a crash.
