Veterans Benefit Hosted By Goodman Acker Personal Injury Law Firm Proves To Be Success

Southfield, MI (PRWEB) November 20, 2014

On Veterans Day, November 11, 2014, the Michigan personal injury law firm of Goodman Acker P.C. partnered with Detroit Tough Gym to host a benefit walk/run and collection drive to help reduce the problem of veterans homelessness in the City of Detroit and surrounding metro areas.

The Caring For Our Homeless Veterans Benefit took place from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. at the Detroit Tough Gym located in Corktown Detroit.

Goodman Acker is proud to announce that the event was a huge success, collecting over eight truck loads of clothing, coats, blankets, shoes, business suits, disposable goods and more for its homeless veterans in addition to monetary funds donated towards the cause. All donations went to the Michigan Veterans Foundation.

I as well as my entire team at Goodman Acker would like to extend a huge thank you to those who donated or volunteered their time at the Caring For Our Homeless Veterans Benefit, says Senior Partner and Attorney at Goodman Acker P.C., Jerry Acker.

We were truly humbled by the incredible turnout at the benefit, and the amount of donations our community donated on the day of the event and prior to the event at our Southfield office. Thanks to the community and the staff at Goodman Acker, we were able to donate tons of clothing, boots, toiletries, blankets and more to the Michigan Veterans Foundation. Our heroes should never be forgotten, and this event was a true display of national caring and respect.

Homelessness among veterans in the City of Detroit is a serious issue. Over the course of the past year, there were 1,681 single homeless adults in the community who were veterans and 102 veterans who were in families, according to the Homeless Action Network of Detroit in its 2013 State of Homelessness Annual Report for the Detroit Continuum of Care.

Thirty-seven percent of the single homeless veteran adults reported being homeless for the first time in 2013, and 64 percent of veterans in families reported being homeless for the first time in 2013.

The Caring For Our Homeless Veterans event received mass media coverage, including local coverage from WDIV Local 4 News, WXYZ Channel 7 News, Fox 2 News, CBS Detroit, WJR and WWJ radio stations. All local coverage from the event can be found by visiting the Goodman Acker Video Library.

Goodman Acker has always been and will continue to be very well involved in the community. Just like our dedication that our personal injury lawyers, paralegals and staff have to helping personal injury victims obtain the justice they deserve after an accident, we are equally as dedicated to helping the community, Acker said.

Harte Auto Group Exclusively Offers Handicap Accessible Vehicles

Meriden, CN (PRWEB) December 19, 2014

Harte MV-1 of Connecticut is one of the few dealerships in the Northeast exclusively selling the first-ever purpose built mobility vehicle to accommodate a passenger using a wheelchair or any other mobility aid.

A purpose built vehicle means that the customer is not an afterthought. The MV-1 design team has developed a vehicle that was created from scratch to meet the needs of a handicapped passenger.

This vehicle is truly amazing in that its the first of its kind and is completely built with passengers needs in mind. said Natalie Ramadanovic, general manager. We offer a full lineup of MV-1s in stock for immediate delivery. We also offer free service pick-up within Connecticut and 24/7 roadside assistance when you purchase or lease an MV-1.

Rather than trying to figure out how to adapt a vehicle to accommodate a ramp, the MV-1 design started with the ramp and built a vehicle around it.

Everything from the door opening, ramp slope, interior lighting, floor space and headroom is laid out to meet or exceed the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Making the vehicle immediately accessible for passengers rather than having to be retrofitted after the purchase or lease.

Harte MV-1 of Connecticut is already making an immediate impact on the surrounding community. The dealership recently donated a brand new MV-1 to a Seymour family in need of a handicap accessible vehicle for their daughter battling a brain tumor. Harte MV-1 of Connecticut provided the family with the vehicle free of charge and on loan for as long as they need it.

We are proud to be able to provide a vehicle that accommodates any type of need a passenger may have, said Ramadanovic. Its our pleasure to be able to bring mobile freedom that completely accommodates a passenger.

While the MV-1 is purpose built for the best-in-class wheelchair accessibility it also accommodates every type of passenger. The MV-1 was built with universal access without vehicle modification, another industry first. Some of the features include low step-in height, large seating designed to accommodate a 95th percentile male, best-in-class interior height, two wheelchair positions; either front or second row, optional rear-facing jump seat, largest single swinging door anywhere at 56 tall and 36 wide, interior room for wheelchair transfer, service animals, and ease of maneuverability inside the vehicle for any individual.
