WOOD RIVER, IL (PRWEB) June 20, 2006
Brad Lakin, an attorney concentrating in consumer rights and the President of The Lakin Law Firm in Wood River, Ill., is giving Americans kernels of vital information and more in "Really Good Info" (http://www.reallygoodinfo.com), a free monthly newsletter that is emailed to everyone who subscribes.
"Most people don't know how to save thousands of dollars on their credit card bills, the top five secrets that will help their children raise their grades, or the five critical steps they should immediately take if they have a traffic accident," said Lakin. "'Really Good Info' answers questions that affect everyone's lives, like the best ways to save money and how and when to buy a car ! Our goal is not to provide in depth investigative pieces, but rather to offer expert advice on topics from health and fitness to finance and consumer purchases." With insider information on how consumers can protect themselves against rip-offs, how to keep them and their loved ones safe, and how to bring more enjoyment into their lives, Lakin views "Really Good Info" as a public service that gives readers both food for thought and readily accessible information they can implement immediately.
"Between television, radio, newspapers, and the Internet, Americans are bombarded with information," said Lakin. "The question becomes, how do you sift through information overload and find the nuggets of information that can make the difference between living a good life and living a great life?"
Lakin's interest in providing consumers with a free monthly newsletter is an extension of his legal work as a consumer advocate. During the past year, for example, Lakin won a $43 million verdict against the Ford Motor Company on behalf of his clients, John and Dora Jablonski. Both were badly injured when their Lincoln Town Car burst into flames after a wrench in the Jablonskis' trunk punctured the fuel tank during a rear end collision.
Lakin explains that the Lincoln Town Car, like the Grand Marquis and Crown Victoria, is designed with a vertical behind the axle fuel tank. Because it is located in the rear crush zone, there is an increased risk of fire in rear end collisions. "We contended that this design feature has been linked to numerous deaths and that Ford knew this design was dangerous yet took no action to protect the public."
The Lakin Law Firm concentrates in a variety of consumer practice areas, including nursing home abuse and neglect, personal injury, workers compensation, and railroad, maritime injuries and class actions. "Really Good Info" is simply a reflection of Brad Lakin's conviction that consumers need to be informed in order to protect themselves and their loved ones.
