Is A Career As A Psychiatrist Or A Criminal Lawyer More Beneficial?
I Know Both Take A Lot Of Schooling But It Seems Like Its Worth It In The Long Run, I Would Love To Be A Criminal Lawyer And Defend People But I'M Not Sure How Secure The Job Is And A Psychiatrist Is A Lot Of School But I Would Really Love To Help People And It Seems Like A Job That Will Always Be Needed. What Do You Reccomend? Any Answers Or Info Will Be Helpful Please!
Neither one. You'd be wasting your time and your money.
A psychiatrist is a medical doctor with a specialty in psychiatry. That would take you about 10 years in college and medical school and you would run up a debt of about $250,000.00. And psychiatrists are very few and far between. You would have to create your own business as they are generally not employed by clinics or hospitals. So, you would be on your own.
As far as being a lawyer, perhaps you are not up to date about the legal field. The legal field is a total glut and has been for several years. That means lawyers are a dime a dozen. Law schools are turning out new lawyers by the thousands every year and there are no jobs for them,.
First, you go to law school and graduate. All law students in all law schools study the same thing. They all learn the basics of all the law, so trying to specialize in something like criminal defense would be almost impossible. Then you try to get a job with a law firm as education without several years of practical experience is worthless. Here's a clue: LAW FIRMS ARE NOT HIRING! It is virtually impossible for new law graduates to get a job. About the only thing they can get is doing contract research at minimum wage.
There are many law graduates now suing their law schools because of the promises of jobs and now they find it impossible to get one.
A recent news story on TV showed a top graduate of a New York Law School was suing them because he could not get hired by anybody in the city of New York. He was working as a waiter in a pizza shop making minimum wage. His debt from law school was $230,000.00. He will be 65 by the time he gets that paid off. If that's what you want to do, ENJOY!
Do Canadian Lawyers Sue A Lot For Medical Malpractice?
Serious Question Given That It Is A Single-Payer Country. Is Medical Malpractice Suits In Canada, Where The Government Is The Defendant, As Rampant As Medical Malpractice Suits Are Here In The States?
After Obesity And Smoking, The Biggest Medical Expense In The Us Is Due To Tort Law.
There are several for this...
1. Loser-pays. Canada has a loser-pays legal system. If you sue someone and loose, a judge may declare the case 'without merit' and order the plaintiff to pay the defendants legal and/or the court costs. It avoids 'blackmail' lawsuits which you get in the US where the doctors/insurance settles merely to avoid the cost of a lawsuit.
2. No medical damages. Because of universal health care, you typically can't sue for any medical costs to correct the issue since they would be covered. Any medical costs you suffer as a result are automatically covered. Also, since you are covered, you don't need to sue immediately in order to get money for care.
3. Liability limits. In Canada there are absolute liability limits on non-deliberate damages for pain and suffering. This is based on inflation and sits around $330,000. Loss of work damages are not so limited, but typically costs issue maximums of around $1M -- the general reason being that if you were in a profession which could earn much more than this... you'd carry your own insurance.
4. Better regulation/certification. Canadian doctors are better monitored and because the province owns all the hospitals and there are a limited number of provinces... you typically don't get incompetent doctors moving around. Doctor rating sites, licensing agencies (college of physicians), etc. make it much easier to deal with a problem doctor.
5. Arbitration. Most provinces require malpractice claims to go through an arbitration process of some sort. The province usually wants to settle (since it will be paying the medical costs anyway) and the lawyers usually want to settle (since they are capped in awards anyway). Most judges are unlikely to award much more than the arbitrator decides anyway. Usually in these cases, fault is fairly obvious and there is little reason to draw things out in court.
Will District Attorney Deal With A Small Check?
I Have A Question. First Off I Am An Independant Consultant.. I Sent A Refund To A Client In The Form Of A Check For $400.. The Check Didnt Clear Because My Other Bills Pulled Out The Funds. I Am In The Process Of Paying The Client Back ( Always Said I Would) But I Am Waiting On Funds To Hit My Account Then I Will Pay Him Back.. He Is Treatned To Take It To The Da And Prosicute Me.. I Will , Of Course Have It Paid Way Before It Hits The Da.. This Guy Told Me He Will Send Me To Jail.. Even Though I Am Paying Him Back.. My Question Is Will The Da Waste Tax Payers Money Over A $400 Check? Event After I Pay It Off?????
in most states the DA is NOT involved, the complainant signs a warrant and presents the returned check as evidence, a court date is set and a judge will look at the check, and find you guilty, they will add court cost and possibly a fine to the amount owed....
get this taken care of before it gets to this point, once the warrant is signed it is going to cost you at least the $400.00 plus a couple of hundred more in court cost, and if the judge has seen you before on a similar case they will hit you with a fine of up to 2 times as much as the check was for.....
do not even think that the DA is to busy because the DA will have no actual involvement.........
Eeoc & Lawsuits?
Has Anyone Ever Filed A Lawsuit With The Eeoc? I Had Recently Filed A Lawsuit Against A Pervious Employer, They Fired Me Because I Was Pregnant (Had The Baby A Week After They Fired Me). I Wanted To Know Has This Happened To Anyone And How Was It Resolved? Did You Get Any Money? How Much? Did You Get Your Job Back? Did They Have To Pay For Training?
The EEOC (on behalf of the people of the United States of America) files a lawsuit against your former employer if it is deemed that the employer broke the law. You will not be a party to that lawsuit, nor is the lawsuit on your behalf - you will not be awarded damages as a result of the lawsuit. The EEOC lawsuit is a last attempt to make the employer comply with the law in the future and to remedy its past indiscretions. Before filing a lawsuit, the EEOC tries to enter into a "conciliation agreement" with the employer, which is a settlement agreement of sorts between the government and the employer where the employer is penalized for not following the law - there may be fines, education, etc. required of your employer. The EEOC does not collect damages for you - you are essentially out of the picture. If you want damages from your former employer for your specific incident, you will have to get an attorney and file a lawsuit. It helps that the EEOC found in your favor, but not necessarily so. Get an attorney who deals with employment matters regularly. Make sure to do this soon - you have a statute of limitations to meet (the date on which your case is forever barred if a lawsuit is not filed). Good luck -

What Are The Steps I Should Take In Becoming A Successful Civil Rights Attorney?
I Am A Junior In High School, And I’Ve Known That I Want To Be One For A Few Years Now. I'm Sure It's What I Want, However, I Am Clueless As To What Steps I Need To Take For Now, And The Things I Need To Do In The Future. I Have Been On My Hs Debate Team For All Three Years, And It's Really A Passion Of Mine.
I hope you don't become a civil rights attorney with those few organizations who claim to defend the freedoms in our country but in reality don't do much of all. Consider becoming an attorney in another area where you can make more money, and then also take on pro-bono civil rights cases, because people who are abused usually do not have the money to hire lawyers.
