Personal Injury/ Auto Accidents
If you find yourself injured as a result of another’s negligence, you are entitled to money damages. Traumatic injuries can be caused by auto accidents, defective products, inattentive physicians, a slip and fall at a place of business, and a wide range of other scenarios. If you are injured you should:
1. Seek medical attention and follow the instructions of your health care provider.
2. Be sure to give a detailed account of the occurrence and description of your injury to your health care provider.
3. Document everything. Almost every phone today has a camera on it. Use it. Take photos of the scene of the incident as well as any visible injury.
4. Seek legal representation. Do not discuss the incident with anyone without talking to your lawyer first.
If the person who injured you is insured, an insurance representative may try and contact you in order to settle the case. It would be best to politely advise them that you are going to hire a lawyer to negotiate any possible settlement. This is because we deal with personal injury cases every day and with that experience comes the ability to predict what a particular case is worth. The insurance company’s goal is always to get out of any given predicament for the least amount of money possible. Our goal is to maximize the amount of money damages you are entitled to.
If you have been arrested and/or charged with a crime, it is likely the arresting officer informed you of your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney. That is the best advice
the police officer will give you. Politely inform the officer of your intention not to answer any questions and request an attorney. There are those who feel that makes them look guilty. Those
people should know that if you have been arrested, the police already think you are guilty. Do not discuss the incident with anyone until you talk to your lawyer.
The break up of a marriage is an emotional trauma. You will need friends and family for emotional support and an attorney you can relate to. We suggest looking forward and prioritizing your interest.
1) If there are children of the marriage, their interests should be considered first.
2) Get a handle on your emotions.
3) Understand what you own and what debts have been incurred.
4) Come up with a plan in order to maintain financial stability.
The termination of a marriage can be a high-conflict affair or can be handled amicably. Regardless, you will need a strong support network and a competent lawyer to help you stay on track and fight for your interest.
Unfortunately, we still live in a world where there are those who are prejudiced and there are those who demonstrate inappropriate behavior in the workplace. This can be even more
heartbreaking when it happens in the workplace where a person is simply trying to earn a living and support his or her family. This is a great injustice and the perpetrators of such behavior MUST be held accountable. If you feel you have been wrongfully terminated or discriminated against by your employer because of your race, age, gender, religious beliefs, or because you reported wrongdoing, you may be entitled to compensation. In a situation like this, documentation is very important. Any email, letter, conversation, or other form of communication that tends to prove the existence of discriminatory conduct must be preserved. Discrimination can be very difficult to prove, so it is in your best interest to contact a lawyer immediately so he or she may begin an investigation.
If you have been sexually harassed in the workplace or school, you may be entitled to compensation. Similar to employment discrimination, documentation of communications that
proves this conduct is paramount. Again, you should contact a lawyer immediately so he or she may begin an investigation.
