I have been musing about the justice system for a bit now, I think that it was triggered when I was contacted earlier about an injury that I had sustained. The person contacting me worked for a mass tort lead generation service, I believe, and they were trying to find clients to represent in a pending legal case that would potentially cover a large number of people who had been injured as a result of a product. It got me to wonder though, and I wonder how often people actually get served justice when they are a part of such large legal proceedings. I guess that it is really a subjective sort of thing.

When my daughter was bitten by a neighbor’s dog, I knew that we were going to have trouble. The dog actually caused a lot of damage to my daughter’s face and arms, and I knew that she was in for a few surgeries at least. The neighbor was never friendly toward us, so we knew that she would not claim responsibility for her dog’s actions. Sadly enough, I was right. I did not let that delay my daughter from having the first surgery she needed, nor did I let it stop me from hiring a Los Angles personal injury attorney.
I never thought I would need a lawyer other than for the will my husband and I had drawn up. Continue reading
Whether or not a case goes to an actual court trial, winning a settlement or the court case involves three things that must be proved in a personal injury lawsuit. There may be other factors involved, depending upon the exact circumstances and situation, but with the help of a Sacramento auto injury attorney you’ll be able to make the right decisions thanks to the guidance of an experienced individual who wants only to help you. The cause must be by the actions of another person. The injury may have been accidental or deliberate. The lawsuit may be against a person or against a company, and it can be brought to law courts by either the injured person or their survivors. Personal injury cases may also involve wrongful death, wrongful job termination, medical malpractice and other situations where people are injured. Continue reading
If you are in the market for some conveyancingquotes then you are probably trying to buy or sell a home. This happens to all of us at some point, and really when it comes to this sort of thing we should just go with the cheapest company that we can find. I know that you might have a specific company in mind when it comes to this, but if they aren’t offering you the cheapest rate then don’t do it. The only time I would not go with the cheapest is if I personally knew someone from the company that I was picking over the cheapest. Continue reading
It’s rough for everyone involved whenever a couple decides to end their relationship or get divorced. It’s such an emotional toll for everybody and then on top of that you have to worry about splitting up your possessions in the process. Thankfully, with collaborative law you are able to successfully come to a compromise that both parties are fairly satisfied with.
For collaborative law to come into effect, both parties involved will first be required to sign an agreement that confirms that the couple both agree to the collaborative law process. This agreement is binding (meaning neither party will be able to get out of it later) and it also means that the lawyer of one of the people involved can’t represent the other person in the future during the entire situation. This prevents a conflict of interest from happening.
One of the good things about collaborative law is that it is easier on the checkbooks for both parties involved. The process goes much smoother and specialists are assigned to certain aspects of the separation. Continue reading
Side effects from drugs can effect individuals in a variety of ways. Whether they are simple side effects like headaches, nausea or other common symptoms or more serious effects like the infamous risperdal gynecomastia, which causes spontaneous lactation in males, they each need to be taken as potentially serious side effects and should be reported to your doctor as soon as you are able to reach them. Continue reading
It took me awhile, but I finally got the first installment of the settlement I made with that insurance company. I was out of work for about a month and a half, so I was really hurting for cash. Still I was not going to back off. I never hired a denver injury attorney, but I talked to one and I picked out the meanest one that I could locate. Maybe he was not that threatening, but I was hoping those insurance company lawyers would figure him for a piranha. Of course I told them how things would shake out in the end and they could not really argue. Continue reading
I need to get a guardianship lawyer in the near future, because I have determined that I really need to become the legal guardian of my grandson, in order to protect him from the self destructive tendencies of his parents. At first, my son had agreed to give me guardianship of the children, but I think he has had his mind changed by his wife. It is unfortunate, but I feel like I am going to need to find the best guardianship lawyer in midwest city that money can buy, so that I will be more likely to get a favorable decision in the custody battle that is likely to ensue.
I really never wanted to get the courts involved in any of this, but it seems like I have been left with little other recourse. My goal has always been to do what is right for my young grandson, because he is just a kid, and he cannot protect himself. Continue reading

When my husband had an upset stomach that would not go away, his doctor finally ordered some tests. Nothing significant came back from them, but nothing the doctor did was working either. We decided to have some of the tests repeated at another hospital, and the results from those tests were horrifying because it showed he had stomach cancer. We were devastated for several reasons, but the main one was that treatment could have started much earlier. We got the ball rolling on that, and we also looked into getting a medical malpractice attorney in Chicago.
The reason we wanted to talk to an attorney was for two reasons. The main one was because this was going to financially destroy us. Continue reading
I refuse to believe that anyone out there enjoys going to court. I’ve come to loathe every moment that I have had to spend in court this past year because of a contract dispute with my boss. He has done everything that he can short of snuffing me to get out of paying what he owes me but I refuse to let him go. I’m a rabid dog biting at his heels. Well, my lawyer is anyway. Thanks to his no win no fee agreements policy, which is the only reason I even hired the guy, I’m hopeful that things will turn out all right.
It’s been rough lately. That’s an understatement: things have been miserable. This guy, the one I have the contract with, owes me something in the ballpark of nearly $50,000 for remodeling his home. Apparently he is trying to claim that one of the windows was broken during the work which somehow, in his mind, voids the entire contract because we didn’t ‘provide services as expected and agreed upon’ whatever that means. We did everything that this guy wanted. Continue reading
As the risperdal class action lawsuit makes headlines, it is exposing many of us who are watching it unfold on blogs and forums to the world of clinical trials, pharmaceutical methodology and how R&D functions. I am always amazed by the sheer number of side effects that a medication is capable of having while being able to find approval from the Federal Drug Administration. With death being a possible side effect for many drugs, it makes you wonder how exactly that is even capable of being approved ‘safe’ for human consumption. Not that I necessarily want the FDA to become a nanny organization preventing me from being capable of taking the medications that I might need to live. I mean, sure, I would probably take something that might kill me if it also might save me, depending on the odds. Continue reading
As a country which embraces progress and new technology, we are in danger from allowing this same technology to either grow out of control or to be stifled to such a degree that we will fall far behind other nations who have opted a more tech friendly to research and development. With birth control technology taking leaps and bounds forward, it is unsurprising to see a mirena iud recall being issued as lawsuits are filed against the company for the faulty nature of a product which has caused documented health risks to those whom are using the implant. It is recalls like this one which are going to help define how we approach policy making and the protocols which will be put in place to keep consumers safe. Continue reading
Inherent risks are a part of adopting any new technology – especially that technology which is found in the medical industry. It is not uncommon to see patients willing to adopt technology that is still considered to be experimental which could cause further health complications. The promise of getting well or making their life easier without further suffering, however, is a strong pull. When my grandfather began to use the GranuFlo dialysis machine, he began to experience heart complications. Thankfully a dialysis lawsuit has been filed due to so many patients coming forward with side effects which have been found to be more common than what had been originally projected by the company. Continue reading
As birth control technology continues to improve it is only going to be natural that some of the technology will have the unfortunate side effect of creating potential health hazards for those that use them. Even with the knowledge of these side effects bring brought to the FCC, it is not uncommon that they will be allowed to continue forward into the public’s hands. This is why the trans vaginal mesh lawsuit is so disconcerting – there have been reports of the mesh being found in the abdominal cavity without having perforated the uterus which is an entirely separate issue which has arisen as of late. There has been no documentation of this happening in clinical trials. My girlfriend has been using the vaginal mesh implant for a significant period of time since she was not willing to allow herself to succumb to the side effects of traditional birth control that she had been using for years.
Most women are eager to avoid those side effects. Continue reading
You might pay premiums to your insurance agency for decades and not have an incident. Maybe you needed to get a new windshield for your car, or may be someone scraped your car in a parking lot. All those things go on your insurance record. Insurance companies decide whether to keep or drop you. Laws had to be enacted so that high risk people could get insured even if dropped by their carrier. Get hit by an uninsured driver and you will be fighting your own insurance company. If you are injured, you had better get a car accident lawyer on your side quickly.
Your friendly insurance agent you have known for years may suddenly find himself unable to help you get payments for things you need. The caps on your insurance coverage will suddenly become real when the hospital bills become due.
As a police officer, my job is to protect residents in my community and ensure that we all have a safe place to live. I try to combat crime by making my presence in the community known. I also try to help people in my community when I can. One of the locals in my area came up to me and asked if I knew where to find a manhattan bankruptcy lawyer. Even though it’s not part of my job description, I was happy to help him out. I happened to know about a local law firm that represented people with bankruptcy cases. I gave him the contact info and told him to check back with me if he needed anything else.
About a month later I saw him again. He told me all about how he made contact with a lawyer there and had a consultation. He was really happy with the service he received, and they were able to tell him how to go about filing and making sure that he protected all of his assets.
