Teens Back in School and On the Road: Tips for Parents with Teen Drivers

Published on Aug 13, 2018 at 2:42 pm in Uncategorized.

With school back in session this month, the roads will be busy with both parent and teenage drivers. For those parents with teenagers getting behind the wheel, and some for the first time, this is the perfect time of the year to discuss your expectations and the responsibilities that go along with driving, to set boundaries and relay consequences of violating them, and to remind your teen of some simple yet crucial rules of the road.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, automobile crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens. Six teens ages 16 to 19 die every day from motor vehicle injuries. Per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are nearly three times more likely than drivers aged 20 and older to be in a fatal crash.

Verdict Ruled for McMath Client; $1.6M Not Owed

Published on Jul 3, 2018 at 3:47 pm in Employment Law, Uncategorized.

MidCon Gathering LLC, represented by McMath Woods PA’s John D. Coulter and Preston T. Kamin of Gray Reed & McGraw LLP, received a defense verdict in a suit after Stephen Carleson and his company, Producers Credit Protection Group, Inc., alleged he developed a credit facility for the company but wasn’t paid $1.6 million he was owed. U.S. District Judge Brian S. Miller, of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas, Western Division ruled that he didn’t have the necessary insurance license to carry out the deal.

It was ruled that the “credit facility” Carleson and his company, helped develop acted as a “credit insurance policy” issued by a third party for MidCon’s benefit. However, Carleson does not have a license to sell insurance in Arkansas. This resulted in a fatal problem.

Safety Town Teaches Students Safety for Life; McMath Sponsors Community Program

Published on Jun 20, 2018 at 10:26 pm in Uncategorized.

On Friday, June 15, 2018, approximately 200 children within the Little Rock community graduated from Safety Town, a fun five-day safety awareness program designed for rising kindergartners. Through the use of music, crafts, movies, books, community speakers and a child-sized town, the curriculum focuses on basic safety lessons that the children use for the rest of their lives.  McMath Woods P.A. was again a proud lead sponsor of this vital community program.  In addition to providing volunteers throughout the week, McMath Woods P.A. took an active role in adding a distracted driving component to the curriculum, and for each graduate, donated a CD of 22 safety songs written and produced by Brian Kinder.

“We are grateful to Mayor Wendy Saer for her dedication to this outstanding program and for creatively incorporating distracted driving into the week’s curriculum. Now with technology at everyone’s fingertips and the number of automobile catastrophes due to cell phone usage drastically increasing, it’s imperative that children understand the concept of distracted driving. Our hope is that if they are aware, then they can remind parents that a phone call or text isn’t more important than their safety. And, of course, one day when they are old enough to drive, we hope they remember the valuable lessons learned at Safety Town,” says Carter Stein, McMath Woods Managing Partner.

Safety Town has been an annual program in Central Arkansas and operated solely by volunteers since 1984.
