March 2017
Hello Spring!

I don’t know about you, but March in Florida has always been my favorite month. The days are starting to get longer; the temperatures are usually quite mild with none of our summer humidity. I just want to be outside whether it’s a walk on the beach, taking in one of our local outdoor markets, or sitting watching the sunset. I feel blessed to live in our own slice of paradise!

I must not be alone, as driving around town, it is evident that there are lots of folks visiting our area from other states. Please be mindful of our visitors when on the roads. Allow yourself a little extra time to get to your destinations. Pay attention at the many crosswalks for wayward pedestrians.  Look twice to avoid accidents with bikes and motorcycles. An injury accident is the last thing you want to happen.

Talk to us here at Insurance Resources about insurance that protects you if you should have an unfortunate incident whereby you cause an injury. We hope you never need to use your liability coverage, but we want you to be educated about what you have and how it would respond if needed.
