4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you want an attorney for any excuse, you should work closely with them as a way to win your case. Regardless of how competent they can be, they're going to need your help. Listed here are four important strategies to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're going to reveal for them. Privilege means whatever you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - most especially information another side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of most information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they should enable them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are punctually, each and every time. The truth is, because you may want to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with just about any crime, it's important to be able to prove to a legal court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward increasing your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Commercial Driving Freeway Laws?
My Dad Got A Ticket Driving On The Freeway In A Big Commercial Truck For Work. He Was Driving On One Freeway When Another Freeway Ramp Came Up So He Moved Over About 1-2 Miles From The Ramp So He Could Continue On The Original Freeway. He Was Given A Ticket. I Was Wondering If Anyone Knew How Many Miles Before The Ramp To The Freeway Could He Move Over. We Already Checked The Dmv Handbooks And Online. Thanks!
Different states have different laws. I was told that California requires commercial trucks to stay in the far right lane at all times, but I've run a lot of miles in California and see a lot of trucks in the #2 lane. If your dad got a ticket, vehicle code that he violated should be referenced on the citation.
I Injured Myself At Work On The 7Th Of June.I Went To The Company Dr (That I Knew Wasn'T Going To Be Fare) They Said It Was A Muscle Strain.The Swelling And Burning Pain After 17 Days Is Stiil There.I'Ve Been Going To Pt And Taking My Meds.I Finally Was Able To Get A Second Opinion By Another Dr.He Said That There Could Be Many Reasons That The Sweeling And Burning Hasn'T Stopped. He Wanted To Get An Mri Did,But Workers Comp(Tx) Only Wants To Take A Picture Of Shoulder And Not My Neck.The Pain Is In My Neck.I'Ve Been Off Work Since The Injury And I Haven'T Recieved Any Benefits To Help Me Out Until I Can Work.I Think I'M Going To Need To Speak To A Lawyer.I Was Advised To Get One Because Workers Comp And My Job May Not Play Fare. What Do You Think?
I work for a doctor who takes work comp patients, and I can tell you if you get a lawyer, things will take at least twice as long to get resolved. How would you like to wait 4-6 months for approval for an MRI or surgery if it comes to that, or longer. Lawyers just muddy the waters.
With that being said sometimes patients need a lawyer to get work comp to get anything done. I want you to be aware of how it all works, it can be very frustrating for a patient if you don't understand the process. When an attorney is involved, everything from work comp and you goes through him (middle man) You are not your attorney's only client, nor are you at the top of his priority list.
Here is the process at my office. The doctor sees a WC (work comp) patient for the first time. He does a thorough exam to determine a diagnosis, he makes recommendations like PT and medication, or requests an MRI or CT be ordered, or maybe surgery. Once the chart notes are mailed of faxed to WC they have one person assigned to your case, and they review the information sent by our office. If they feel all the info is in order, they approve the recommended exams, etc...The patient goes for MRI, PT whatever, and comes back into office to have their exams reviewed, or check their progress. Then those notes, along with any MRI reports or PT reports are sent along with any new requests, different studies or maybe surgery. The WC folks look over and if all is ok, they approve it, but they do not want to pay a dime more than they have to. A lot of times they send patients for a second opinion or an IME (independent medical evaluation) and sometimes those doctors are employed by the WC company, and they are looking for any reason to deny any further treatment (in my opinion). This usually is a 2 week turnaround on average each time you send anything to the WC company.
You say your neck is hurting, but they only want to treat your shoulder. You don't specify what your symptoms are, except pain, but a lot of shoulder problems present with neck pain. The doctors have to rule out each body part, and with WC they don't do that at the same time. They will exhaust all options related to your shoulder, and if the MRI shows nothing, they the WC may approve studies to be done on your neck.
I would call your work comp claims agent and discuss the process from start to finish. Ask what you need to do to get paid, and find out what their time frames are.

Do I Have A Good Medical Malpractice/Wrongful Death Suit?
In July Of 2009, My Birth Mother Who Lived In Stanford, Ca Slipped In Her Apartment And Sustained An Open Fracture To Her Leg. She Sat There Waiting For Over 12 Hours Before Anyone Came To Help Her. During That Time, She Acquired A Multi-System Infection. However, She Only Lasted 5 Days By Herself In The Hospital As She Had To Be Put On A Breathing Machine And Eventually Slipped Into A Coma.
My Case Is Made By The Fact That My Birth Mother Had Schizophrenia And Had Been Prescribed The Drug Clorazil. Even Worse, She Had Been Undergoing Several Rounds Of Chemotherapy And Radiation For Breast Cancer Which She Beat Shortly Before Passing Away. Clorazil Already Has A Black Label Warning About The Lowered Counts Of White Blood Cells. It Is My Understanding That Chemo And Radiation Are So Toxic To The Human Body That They, Too, Kill Off White Blood Cells. This Would Mean That She Was Left Completely Defenseless By The Combination Of These 3 Treatments. It Is My Understanding From Looking At Her Records And The Autopsy Report That She Was Still Taking Clorazil At The Time Of Her Accident Preceding Her Death. This Leads Me To Believe That Her Psychiatrist And Oncologist Did Not Communicate And If They Did, They Negligently Risked Her Life In A Manner That Caused Her To Lose Her Life And My And My Children'S Enjoyment Of Her In Addition To The Fact That I Had To Board A Plane At 35 Weeks Pregnant To Say My Good Byes.
I Do Not Know Whether I Could File This In Missouri Where I Live, California Where She Passed Away Or In Federal Court? What Are The Statutes Of Limitations On This Case? Her Date Of Death Was 7/25/2009.
The proper jurisdiction for a wrongful death lawsuit would be California, as that is where the alleged negligent conduct occurred. If you sue doctors in California, why should they be forced to travel to Missouri to defend a lawsuit?
Also, it is unlikely that the facts you present would be grounds for a successful lawsuit. First, did your mother provide an accurate accounting of the medications she was taking to both the psychiatrist and the oncologist? If your mother did not tell the psychiatrist of the chemotherapy drugs, it is unlikely he could have known about a possible interaction with the Clorazil. If the oncologist did not know about the Clorazil, he could not have know of a possible interaction. Did your mother sign medical releases permitting the oncologist and psychiatrist to discuss her treatment? If not, then they may not have been able to communicate regarding her care.
Was either doctor responsible for the twelve hour delay before your mother received treatment? If she had received treatment sooner, would that have prevented the infection?
No doctor in California would be liable for any injuries you did, or may, have sustained from traveling at 35 weeks pregnant. The doctors did not order or mandate that you travel to California. That was your choice.
In most states, there is a two to three-year time frame in which to file a personal injury/medical malpractice/wrongful death lawsuit, so the statute of limitations has likely expired.
However, you are free to consult with a reputable personal injury attorney in California if you wish to pursue this.
