The saying goes that “politics is Hollywood for ugly people”, but some politicians today are known for their stunning physical appearance as much as they are for the laws they pass and campaign for. Essentially, they become celebrities for more than their occupation, but like all of those caught in the limelight, this does not mean that they are safe from the dangers of the road.
Congressman Aaron Schock got into a minor car accident when he hit an icy patch of road in Peoria, Illinois on January 7th, 2010. He slide along the slick streets and crashed into another car, but is reported to have come out of the accident unscathed.
You know by now that celebrities are people, just like you and our firm’s car accident attorneys. This means that even though they live in the spotlight, they can still receive personal injuries when they come across a section of icy road in the middle of winter. Do not worry, though, as all those involved in Schock’s accident walked away free of pain and suffering, especially the Congressman’s chiseled abs.
The Congressman and the other party were able to work out the property damage details without getting police involved. A rep for Schock says that he still made it to his scheduled district function early and talking with constituants dispite having just been in an accident on the road.
Most of us might not be so fortunate to avoid a catastrophic injury in an automobile accident. It is winter time and even in the warmest of climates of America, accidents can still happen due to bad weather conditions.
Our firm’s highly-qualified car accident attorneys recommend keeping your entire body free from harm in a crash this cold season and remind you to buckle your seatbelt and slow down if snow, rain, or ice is on the road. You do not have to be a celebrity politician to be safe while behind the wheel.
