Slip And Fall Injury?
I Recently Slipped And Fell In A Building That I Work In, The Floor Was Very Oily. The Building Management Has Offered To Pay My Medical Bills And Lost Wages, But Is It Possible To Ask For Pain And Suffering Compensation Without Getting A Lawyer Involved. My Injuries Were Basic Falling With Swelling Of The Knee And Muscle Stiffness, Nothing Major Just Uncomfortable And Painful.
I really don't think you'd get much for pain and suffering. Both of my kids were involved in car accidents which were not their fault. We had a lawyer as they were big settlements. How pain & suffering is figured out is the lawyer looks at all similar cases, and uses that for a base line to start. So in your case, where do you start? Most cases I've heard of have involved broken bones. I guess you could ask for x amount of dollars. Getting a lawyer would not be worth it. I honestly doubt a lawyer would even take your case
Temporary Custody And Lawyers?
My Brother And Sister-In-Law Are Getting A Divorce. Last Week He Got Papers In The Mail From Her Telling Him She Was Seeking Temporary Custody; He Is Going To Have To Go Before A Judge Next Week. He Wants To Try And Get Custody Of The Girls. He Doesn'T Have A Lawyer Yet, How Important Is It That He Gets One?
It's imperative that he gets one. Without a lawyer he might not be able to get custody.
He should fight for joint custody of the children, because if he tried to get fully custody he has to prove that she is a unfit mother. And that is sometimes extremely hard to prove. His best shot would be joint custody. And that would be the type of advice he needs from a lawyer. If there children are at a certain age, with joint custody, they might be able to decide which parent they want to live with.
My 15 Yr Old Daughter Wants To Run Away Because Her Mother Wont Let Me See Her. Can I Legally Go Get Her?
I Am In The Beginning Of A Custody Battle For My 15 Year Old Daughter In The State Of Maryland. My Ex ( We Were Never Married) Has Not Let Me See Or Talk To Her For The Past 4 Months. She Finally Called Me Last Night And Told Me She Is Running Away Because She Can'T Stand To Be At Her Mother'S House Any Longer Due To Neglect. I Can'T Afford A Lawyer And Have No Clue What My Rights Are. I Contacted Cps Today And They Said They Were Not Allowed To Give Me Any Advice But I Could File A Complaint. My Daughter Stated That If I Don'T Come And Get Her She Will Run Away And Nobody Will Know Where She Is. Can I Legally Go And Get Her? Please Help. Thank You!
If there is no custody agreement in place, and especially if you are not recognized as the father, you could be charged with kidnapping or custodial interference. If you are concerned about your child's welfare, you could file a complaint with CPS. If you have to borrow money, or get a second (or third) job, you should retain a reputable attorney specializing in family law. You may also be able to contact your local legal aid office, which may be able to provide low-cost legal representation.
Now That Tsarnaev Has Gotten The Death Penalty, News Is Saying His Attorney Will Be Appealing For Over A Decade. He Will Sit On Death Row?
For A Few Decades.
Who Pays His Attorney Fees? Tsarnaev Isn'T Paying A Cent. So Who Does? Is He A State Attorney? Does That Mean Taxpayers Pay His Fees? If So, That'S Not Fair.
Yes, the taxpayer ends up paying for his attorney. And for the cost of the court and judges hearing the appeals. The news is right - because almost endless appeals are allowed, the average prisoner sentenced to death is on death row for over ten years, and more die there than ever get executed. Fun fact I discovered when I was looking at this earlier - since the death penalty was reinstated for federal crimes in 1988, 74 have been sentenced to death but only 3 have been executed. The rest have either died or are still appealing, at YOUR expense.
This is a reason often given for opposing the death penalty, that because of the legal costs, it's actually cheaper for taxpayers just to sentence him to life without parole.
It makes me wonder if the US actually believes in the death penalty. Why doesn't it USE it more often, or doesn't it trust its own courts?
I'm British and what we did before abolishing the whole thing 50 years ago was allow only three appeals and six weeks at most to make them. If they failed, you hanged (the one and only method we used was long drop hanging) at most six weeks after the judge passed sentence. By the way, I see what your religion is... if a murderer didn't appeal and wasn't reprieved, the execution would be three weeks after sentence, traditionally to allow three clear Sundays for him to make peace with God. We are an officially Christian country (well, the England part is) so that was the way. It is still the law that every English prison must have a Church of England chaplain and if you happen to be Catholic or something else, there will be provision for you too. For Catholics, there will be a priest to say Mass every week.
If you can't get it right after a trial AND three appeals, you never will, and we never noticeably hanged more of the wrong people than the US currently executes. There wasn't even an argument about the method - the measured long drop is VERY quick and kills the prisoner of a broken neck. It was just the fact that just occasionally courts DO get it wrong that caused Parliament to abolish the death sentence for murder - is killing someone by mistake EVER right? What we now have is a mandatory life sentence, with the possibility of a whole life term (i.e. without parole) if the crime deserves it.
I suspect that if Tsarnaev had done what he did in England, a whole life term would have been the sentence. I say that because of the Lee Rigby case - he was a British soldier who was hacked to death in the street by two fanatical Muslims a couple of years ago, just because they wanted to "get their revenge" on the army for what it is doing against al-Qaeda etc. One got a whole life term, the other got life with a minimum of 45 years - which means he's going to be about 70 before he even gets considered for parole.
There are serial killers who committed suicide in prison rather than face the rest of their life there. They thought death was the easy way out. Isn't that another thought about the death penalty?
What Kinds Of Law...?
What Kinds Of Law Are There? Also, If A Lawyer Defends Elderly Citizens (Especially In Cases Like Elder Abuse), What Kind Of Law Is That?
Other fields of law (as noted in the Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos053.htm include:
Lawyers may specialize in a number of areas, such as bankruptcy, probate, international, elder, or environmental law. Those specializing in environmental law, for example, may represent interest groups, waste disposal companies, or construction firms in their dealings with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other Federal and State agencies. These lawyers help clients prepare and file for licenses and applications for approval before certain activities may occur. Some lawyers specialize in the growing field of intellectual property, helping to protect clients’ claims to copyrights, artwork under contract, product designs, and computer programs. Other lawyers advise insurance companies about the legality of insurance transactions, guiding the company in writing insurance policies to conform to the law and to protect the companies from unwarranted claims. When claims are filed against insurance companies, these attorneys review the claims and represent the companies in court.
Most lawyers are in private practice, concentrating on criminal or civil law. In criminal law, lawyers represent individuals who have been charged with crimes and argue their cases in courts of law. Attorneys dealing with civil law assist clients with litigation, wills, trusts, contracts, mortgages, titles, and leases. Other lawyers handle only public-interest cases—civil or criminal—concentrating on particular causes and choosing cases that might have an impact on the way law is applied. Lawyers are sometimes employed full time by a single client. If the client is a corporation, the lawyer is known as “house counsel” and usually advises the company concerning legal issues related to its business activities. These issues might involve patents, government regulations, contracts with other companies, property interests, or collective bargaining agreements with unions.
A significant number of attorneys are employed at the various levels of government. Some work for State attorneys general, prosecutors, and public defenders in criminal courts. At the Federal level, attorneys investigate cases for the U.S. Department of Justice and other agencies. Government lawyers also help develop programs, draft and interpret laws and legislation, establish enforcement procedures, and argue civil and criminal cases on behalf of the government.
Other lawyers work for legal aid societies—private, nonprofit organizations established to serve disadvantaged people. These lawyers generally handle civil, rather than criminal, cases.
Is Law School Just For Becoming A Lawyer? Other Options?
This May Be A Really Dumb Question, But...
I Just Started College And I Am Considering Maybe Law School After, If I Do Well On The Lsat. I Am Interested In Law, Human Rights, Criminal Justice, Ect. But, I Was Just Wondering If There'S Any Other Careers Besides A Lawyer Or A Judge, In The Criminal Justice Field That Might Benefit Me From Going Into Law School?
That's not a stupid question.
Law school is a type of professional school, sort of like business school or medical school, that's designed to set you on a certain career path. If you attend medical school, you're working toward being a doctor. If you attend business school, you probably want to end up working in some business capacity - as an executive or even an entrepreneur. If you attend law school, you're working toward being a lawyer.
That being said, people use their JDs for many other types of jobs. The question, though, isn't whether you can do something else with your JD, but whether your JD would actually help you do something else besides being a lawyer/judge. The answer is not really. In some situations, a JD will price you out of the market. Employers will wonder why you're not a lawyer and will worry that you're a flight risk. They'll think you're overqualified, as well. In other cases, I've heard of executives having JDs or JD/MBAs, but I get the impression that they're not all that beneficial. You could, of course, teach with a JD, but it's not as competitive as other types of advanced degrees unless you want to teach law.
In general, I would advise people not to go to law school if they know from the outset that they have no interest in being a lawyer. The reason is that law school is a very expensive way to get an education. It's not as flexible as a master's or a PhD and there's not as much applicability to other careers as there would be with an MA/PhD. There's no rule that you can't transition to other careers with a JD, but most other types of careers aren't looking for JDs, either.
If you want to keep your options open, try to get into a PhD program. If you want to work in human rights law or some kind of public interest law, then consider law school.
