Where Can I Get Uptodate Settlement Amounts ?
I Need Rss Feeds Of
Injury Settlement Amounts / Claim
Mesothelioma Settlement Amounts / Claims
And Other Types Of Settlement Amounts / Claims
Could You Please Tell Me Where Can I Find Such Feeds / Or Rss Feeds ?
Personal injury settlements are rather difficult to negotiate, because insurance companies are for-profit businesses that do their best to reduce expenses. Thus the amount of an insurance company's first offer is likely considerably less than the amount they believe your claim is worth. For this reason, it is important to understand some of the basics of how to calculate a personal injury settlement amount.

Lawyers And Attorneys Jobs?
What Is An In- House Attorney Or Lawyer,What Is Their Salary, The Pro And Cons.
in-house refers to a company (or other business) having their own legal team rather than using an external firm either on a retainer or individual basis (in mobile phone terminology, contract or pay as you go).
Obviously having your own legal team means that you have lawyers at your disposal, and these will be able to learn the business inside out, which is very important because in commercial practice understanding your client is key. An in-house department might include lawyers who cover a number of specialisms or highly specialised lawyers. This largely depends on the business needs.
An example would be a company who invent products. There might be worth in having internal lawyers to handle the intellectual property rights, particularly to act as patent attorneys. Similarly an insurance company may want lawyers who specialise in fraud.
I recently approached a commercial property company for work experience. I learnt their legal team deal with a number of specialisms including acquisitions and leases, venture capital, and matters of corporate law. Because of the wide-ranging issues they might deal with, were they are more generalised, in house legal departments will still refer matters to an external team.
The pros are simply:
The in-house lawyers learn the business, whereas external lawyers will seek to apply general commercial sense to the situation
It may be cheaper if there is ongoing work for the in-house team to do. In the patent application example, this would probably always be cheaper.
The lawyers can become highly specialised in an area the business often deals in, for example patent applications, or to use a different example agricultural land purchases.
All staff time is spent on the business's matters, not a 50 second phone call charged as one 6 minute unit, whilst the other 5:10 is spent dealing with other business's.
Lawyers are always available, you don't need to go see an external firm at their convenience.
The cons on the other hand:
It is expensive to hire lawyers to do nothing, especially when you'll be paying comparable pay to a lawyer in private practice.
An external firm will usually have more expertise, in that firms tend to have multiple departments that often work together to complete transactions. In-house lawyers tend to be very specialised in one particular area, or so generalised that they need to refer externally anyway.
Basically as a business you'd need to look at cost-effectiveness. It probably never will be unless you are a big business turning over millions.
For the lawyers concerned, there would be pros and cons to working in-house, these mirror those for the company really. Pro: billing targets are not an issue, you don't have to log every second of your day. Pro: you can become highly specialised in an industry, making you ultra employable in that industry. Con: you are ultra specialised, and the industry collapses. Con: less variety of work. Pro: you might get to travel with your work to help different branches.
There's a lot of good points, but I think if you go into in-house first, you'll struggle to get out into private practice (short of setting up yourself) if things go wrong or it's not for you.
Pay depends on sector, experience and so forth.
Figures in England say £50k - £65k for 0-2 years experience, rising to £75k - £100k for 6 years and up to around £145k for director level. This figures don't include bonuses, which a typical package for the top directors being £275k.
2009 US figures say $65k to start and finishing up on $218k after 10-12 years experience.
Not sure I trust the English figures, although UK lawyers are the highest paid in Europe.
Are There Any Free Traffic Ticket Lawyers In New York State?
For Speeding Ticket
Dear Elizabeth, Well My Dear First there are no free lawyers and no one will be able to help you no matter where and who you call. all of them are after the money but you can do it on your own. First of all never go to your court date the first time what you do is ask for a continuous, in other words right to the court you should have the court address on the ticket you have look at it or the papers that was given to you and you will see which court you suppose to go to. now here are your options. First and foremost if you have a friend who is a Mechanic or anyone who has a Mechanic license shop or whatever ask them to give you a paper that your speedometer was not working at he date of you got your ticket. Then let them give you a bill that you fixed your speedometer that way you have one way out. Now the reason you delay the date of your court ate you can put anything school sick flu or whatever excuse you need to put just put something that will be able to continue your date and then they will be assigned you another day to go to court. Now if the cop who gave you the ticket will not show to your court date which most likely they don't that's why you ask for a continuous, when a police officer issue a ticket he puts a date on it that he knows that that date is his either his day off so he makes more money or he will be in court and will not want to work hard so he goes to court to spend what I will call a free leisure time doing nothing but waiting in court so he will pass his day without doing the hard work. Now another thing if you look at the ticket and if you even find one mistake like your name is not spelled correctly or the citation he has given you does not match with that specific state statue like i.e. if the SS which is state Statue is 404 B and then you see he has written 404C that ticket is null and void since all must be exact duplicate of the same statue of the law or it will be Null and Void. that's how Lawyers look for the first thing when you tell them that you have a speeding ticket or even DUI they will search about the Citation code state statue as for DUI they will see when the last time that machine has been calibrated. Even though if that Machine has been calibrated yesterday then they will want to know who did and what happen when it was calibrated was the person who calibrated that machine professional or not, was or did he have any other problems on his records how long he has been doing this and so on and so on this is when you see lawyers asking vi TV or fliers or whatever advertisements they use they know how the system works so they will charge you $1000, and they know all what it will take is two minutes with the judge and your ticket will become invalid and that's why the always and I mean always ask for continues so that they will catch that specific officer being busy one day and then they go to court the officer will not show up and the ticket is dismissed you might pay court costs but it will not be on your driver license or any record on your driver licenses. if you send me a copy of your ticket I will read it check for you all the information and will also write for you the continuous letter so you will not go to court in the date you are suppose to. PLEASE Dear Elizabeth, DON'T GO TO COURT THE DAY YOU SUPPOSE TO. PLEASE YOU MUST ASK FOR CONTINUOUS AND YOU PUT 60 DAYS ON IT THAT WAY YOU ARE NOT IN VIOLATION OF A COURT ORDER BUT BY THEN YOU WILL HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO ARRANGE ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT MUST BE DONE TO BE NOT CHARGED FOR THE TICKET. PLEASE KNOW THEY MIGHT CHARGE YOU COURT COSTS WHICH IS NOT A BIG DEAL AFTER ALL THAT'S HOW THE JUDGES SECRETARIES AND THE COURT IT SELF GET PAID BY COURT CHARGES. There are so many other ways to do it. Please get in touch with me I will tell you all the information needed. Good Luck Best Wishes, please contact me, I hope you were not driving 100 MPH in a 65MPH :)) please put your name reference this yahoo advice so your email will not go to spam. you already have me as your contact if you don't have my email contact me on email@example.com this is only for you to reach me then will give you the right one in order to go into other details will not let you down. I always will help all my contact's as much as possible and you are one of the best.
Need Legal Advise - Please Help?
5 Days Ago My Sister Gave Birth To Her First Child. He Was Immediately Rushed Into The Intensive Care Unit. I Kept Asking What Was Happening And I Was Finally Told That My Sister Had Been Taking 300 Milligrams Of Methadone Per Day During Her Pregnancy And The Baby Was Going Through Severe With Drawls. The Doctors Are Having To Give The Baby 300 Milligrams Per Day And Slowly Reduce The Milligrams Over 30 - 45 Days Until The Baby Is Drug Free. My Questions Are:
1) What Can Happen To The Baby Long Term, Mentally?
2) What Can Happen To My Sister Over This? Jail?
Was the methadone prescribed to your sister? Did she go to a methadone clinic during the pregnancy? If so she will not be in any trouble. For mothers that are addicted to opiates methadone treatment is the preferred treatment during pregnancy. It's very common for pregnant women to be on methadone. Had she stopped using opiates during the pregnancy the baby could have died or suffered a great deal.
Methadone is a very safe drug to use during pregnancy and the effects on the baby are few if any. Not all babies have withdrawal symptoms after they are born but some do. This can have some short term effects on the baby but studies have shown that babies born on methadone will catch up with their peers and will be no different than other babies and toddlers. As they grow up most have no lasting problems although learning disabilities have been found in some children born on methadone. With proper follow-up and early help your nephew should be just fine like any other little boy.
If your sister was not prescribed the methadone but bought it on the street it is highly unlikely that she would be charged with any crime but depending on the laws in your area there is a small possibility. It's usually not a crime to use drugs while pregnant but in the few places where it is mothers are usually charged while pregnant and not after the baby is born. It's still very rare and very controversial to charge mothers for using drugs while pregnant. I don't think you should worry about it. If it would happen I recommend that you contact the Legal Action Center on your sister's behalf.
My biggest legal concern about your sister and her baby is involvement by child protective services. When babies are born positive for drugs they are always called to investigate. This doesn't mean that she will lose her baby but they will investigate to determine that she is fit to care for the baby. If she is not enrolled at a methadone clinic I highly recommend she does so asap as that will help her to show that she's a responsible mother.
Some ignorant and backwards social workers have made an issue of mothers attending methadone clinics and threatened to remove children from their care if they remain on the clinic and have even removed kids. However, this is illegal as it violated the Americans with Disabilities Act. Some social workers apparently don't know that though. Hopefully your social worker won't be that ignorant but if they in any way cause problems for your sister about going to a methadone clinic you should contact the Legal Action Center for help. They have helped several parents in similar situations. Hopefully she won't need any help though.
Please don't buy all the stuff about methadone being legal heroin and just a free high, etc. Methadone taken daily will not get you high. It will just keep you from using drugs. I have been on methadone for seven years and it has saved my life and given it back. It's a great treatment if you do it correctly.
Sprucing Up The Office On A Low Budget?
Im An Intern At A Local Legal Aid Office, And I Spend A Considerable Amount Of Time Here. As Is, The Office Looks Really Barren And Cold. How Can I Make It Feel Warm And Cozy With A Country Feel Without Spending Too Much Money?
I Alreadu Have Bought Some Paintigns That Were On Sale At Walmart, But Do Any Of You Have Any Other Suggestions To Make My Office Look And Feel Warm Without Spending Too Much?
(Remember, I Am A Broke Law Student In An Unpaid Internship!)
Add an inexpensive area rug and a matching cushion on your chair to warm up the atmosphere. You can find a small rug pretty cheap at Walmart or Home Depot.
If you can have an electric appliance in your office, an electric teapot with cups and fixings for cocoa, tea, hot cider or instant soup on a wooden tray will add a nice touch especially if you get items with a country theme. If you can't afford to buy an electric teapot or area rug, just remember to put it on your Christmas list!
Don't forget green plants and silk flowers. Everything always looks better with growing things around.
