CLEARWATER - Guns are present in more than one third of all homes in the United States, which is why it’s important that all members of your family are educated on the safe use, handling and storage of firearms.

According to the Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence, 42 percent of parents with guns in their home keep at least one unlocked and 25 percent of parents keep at least one gun loaded. Nine children or teens are shot every day in gun accidents and more than 18,000 are injured or killed each year due to gun violence.

The Clearwater Police Department is dedicated in its efforts to teach local children the dangers guns can pose and what they can do to stay safe.

CLEARWATER - The American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys has recognized the exceptional performance of attorney Matthew E. Noyes as 2016 10 Best Personal Injury Attorneys for Client Satisfaction.

The American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys is a third-party attorney rating organization that publishes an annual list of the Top 10 Personal Injury attorneys in each state. Attorneys who are selected to the 10 Best list must pass AIOPIA’s rigorous selection process, which is based on client and/or peer nominations, thorough research, and AIOPIA’s independent evaluation. AIOPIA’s annual list was created to be used as a resource for clients during the attorney selection process.

One of the most significant aspects of the selection process involves attorneys’ relationships and reputation among his or her clients. As clients should be an attorney’s top priority, AIOPIA places the utmost emphasis on selecting lawyers who have achieved significant success in the field of personal injury law without sacrificing the service and support they provide. Selection criteria therefore focus on attorneys who demonstrate the highest standards of client satisfaction.
