When you really need a legal representative, try to find one that handles the issue you're facing. Even when a family member or friend recommends you use a company they understand, if they don't have got a focus that's comparable to your case, keep looking.

No matter how busy they are or how small your concerns seem off their perspective, it's important that they reply to you in the caring and timely manner. From the purpose of view of an ordinary citizen who isn't familiar with the judicial system, court cases might be pretty scary you want updates and also to think that you're portion of the solution. Some attorneys are simply just more suitable to you and your case as opposed to others. Make certain you've hired the best team for the circumstances, to ensure that you can placed the matter behind you as soon as possible.

Public Transportation: Bus Slip And Fall?
A Friend Who Was On Her Way To Work One Rainy Night Fell On A Wet Slippery Bus Floor 2 Days Ago In Phoenix, Az And She Is Wondering If She Has A Case. The Bus Driver Did Not File An Incident Report Nor Did She Obtain Any Transit Information. She Is Wondering If There Is Video Footage Will It Help?
Another Factor I'M Concerned About Is That She Let Go Of The Railing To Put Her Glasses In Her Purse When She Fell (She Stated She Slid All The Way To The Back Of The Bus) And The Driver Asked Her If She Was Okay And She Replied, Yes! She Stated She Did Not Take A Seat (There Were Seats Available) Because She Was Drenched From The Heavy Rain. She Went To The Er The Next Day After Work And Was Released With A Sprained Foot/Ankle.
Even If She Is Found To Be Negligent By Letting Go Of The Railing, Does She Still Have A Case Since The Bus Driver Did Not Complete Any Injury Or Incident Protocol?
Any And All Legal Advice Is Greatly Appreciated.
YES YES YES
She fell down. Sue God for Gravity
She slipped Sue the shoe Manufacturer for slippery shoes.
Sue her parents for not teaching her how to walk.
Sue the Bus company for driving in the rain.
Sue the driver for ASKING are you all right. He should have ignored the I am fine and just stopped the bus called an ambulance and filled out paperwork for hours.
Can the citizens of Phoenix sue her for not sitting down? For not holding on for not using common sense?
YES go get a lawyer He will think of something. He will get his pay your friend may get a dollar or two and your taxes will go up to pay for it.
Curious does she have ANY responsibility for her own feet.Using Normal care and caution when walking on a wet surface.
Did she HAVE TO take off her glasses and put them in her purse. Could she have held on with one arm around the pole while doing so.
Does she think she won the lottery?
Where to you think the money comes from to pay her.? YOUR POCKET YOUR TAXES.
If she is so concerned about missing work it is obvious she has not much concern or injury. She is just looking for an extra pay check to cover her not thinking and riding in a safe manner.
Why would the driver complete an INJURY report when she replied I AM OK.
She could have contacted transit IMMEDIATELY when she got home. She WAITED for more than a day
She could of contacted transit and filled in her own report.She choose NOT TO.
. Maybe your friend fell down at home too later. Maybe she slipped BEFORE she got on the bus. She will have a hard time proving the source of injury.
Is There A Way To Find Out If The Company That You Plan On Investing/Buying Stock Is Being Sued /In Litigation
Yes. The SEC requires that lawsuits meeting certain thresholds be disclosed. These will be found in the SEC filings. You will have to hunt a bit for them and the document might say that management does not believe that the suits will have a material impact on operations.
For example, this quote is from the recent Merck 10-Q:
"ProceedingsThe Company is involved in various claims and legal proceedings of a nature considered normal to its business, including product liability, intellectual property, and commercial litigation, as well as additional matters such as antitrust actions."
However, there is then a lengthy discussion of Vioxx-related lawsuits.
Essentially, you will have to go directly to the SEC filings for publicly-traded U.S. companies.
Any Lawyers Despise Their Own Profession?
I Know As An Engineer I Sometimes Despise The Corporation Entity. Any Lawyers Feel Like You Went Into It With Ideal Hopes And The System Has Swallowed You Up? Just Curious, Not Trying To Offend.
I happen to be a lawyer. I was somewhat older when I started law school (30), so there wasn't an illusion of showing up to save the world from all of the injustices, however, I wanted to be really good at what I did. After working in private practice for 4 years, I struck out on my own. It has been a struggle to establish a solid client base, but I love being my own boss, getting to pick and choose what cases I want to take, and setting my own hours. It really gives me a lot more time to spend with my family. Not the typical burning the midnight oil scenario. What I truly despise are the people who stereotype the entire legal profession as power hungry, greedy, blood sucking vultures. That is entirely untrue, and while there are unsavory persons in any profession, many attorneys in my community are truly concerned and caring individuals who volunteer their time on many occasions to help those less fortunate. Enough said!!

For Attorneys: Child Support?
My Parents Divorced When I Was 7(I'M 16 Now), And My Dad Didn'T Pay Child Support For The First Two Years. He Finally Paid It In A Lump Sum, But My Mom Never Truly Used That Money For Me. Since She Didn'T Have A Job For Almost Four Years, She Used Most Of It To Support Herself. My Father Didn'T Have To Pay Spousal Support. My Question Is, Can I Sue My Mom For That Money? Or Is There No Way To Prove That Most Of The Money Went To Her?
The money your Mom received for the support of you was for her to spend - not you.
Just because it says child support does not mean it was to be used for things you thought were useful. You are the child. She is the adult.
The money your Mom received was to be spent in a way she thought was right:
car purchase or rent
insurance (car, house, health)
TV / Cable
Don't take sides.
Your Mom is not 100 % right or wrong and your Dad is not 100 % right or wrong.
It takes 2 people to break a marriage.
As for suing ? Who would you sue ? Your Mom because you did not think she spent the money the way you wanted her to ? Good luck with that. The Court / Judge only cares that your Mom received the money from your Dad.
And, because your Dad did not pay for awhile ? I imagine it was difficult for you and your Mom at times, especially since she was a stay at home Mom taking care of you and unemployed for 4 years. Did it occur to you that since she was unemployed the MEAGER money she received from your Dad was hardly enough to cover every single expense she had on your account ?

I'm not a lawyer, but my understanding is that under most US Law the legal-spouse is by default the immediate beneficiary of all assets left by the descedent spouse. Especially if there's no will. Again, I'm not a lawyer, but it would seem that the in-laws have no claim or power to decide what happens to marital property and assets.
Definitely get some legal representation and ask what the best course of action is: Perhaps they will issue restraining orders and/or (if possible) issue injunctions against the inlaws asking them to cease-n-decists their actions agains the living spouse.
SOunds like the in-laws are a bunch of vultures. The guy hasn't even been buried and they're all over his stuff. Talk about lack of respect.
