  • Opening Intro -

    No matter how secure you believe your finances might be, there are major risks around every corner.

    In some states, over 250,000 bankruptcies are being filed every year due to issues ranging from medical bills to credit card debt.


Here is a look at four common pitfalls that can put your finances at risk and some steps you can take to avoid them.

  • An Auto Accident

    Even the safest drivers will most likely experience at least one auto accident in their lifetime. Luckily, most accidents are nothing more than minor fender benders that can easily be taken care of with one’s insurance. When a collision results in serious damage or injuries, however, it is time to get help from medical and legal professionals. Drivers should also collect as much evidence as possible right after the accident including the contact information of everyone involved, pictures of the scene, and a written account of the collision.
  • Residential Water Damage
    Low water pressure or a faucet with a slow drip might not seem like big problems at first, but these issues can result in expensive damage when they are not taken care of right away. Water will quickly begin to destroy almost any material it comes into contact with including tile, wood, fabric, and certain types of metal. When the problem is not addressed immediately, families might be surprised to find out that their home insurance will not cover the repairs. Water damage is an issue that homeowners should never take lightly.
  • Criminal Charges
    Most legal issues should never be tackled without an attorney, and this includes criminal charges. Situations such as being charged with a sex crime can change an individual’s life forever with fines, fees, time in prison, and a permanent blemish on their record. After being charged with a crime, the single best way to protect your finances and your record is to contact a sex offense attorney before speaking with anyone else.  That way, you have yourself covered and protected no matter what happens.
  • Divorce
    Much like criminal charges, a divorce is another legal situation that can spiral out of control. Many people tend to think that their divorce will be a straightforward process, but these situations can become incredibly emotional. What started out as an amicable separation can quickly devolve into a stressful legal battle over all of your personal and shared assets.

When it comes to your finances, you should never put your future at risk. Preparing yourself for these common financial hazards will allow you to hold on to the money you have worked so hard for.
