8Months Ago The Company I Worked For We Ware Lifting A Ibeam Everything Was Done By Hand Abot Eight Of Us, When We Got It High Enough They Had It On A 2X4 I Was Going To Put A Latter To Support Thats How The Guy Alway Does It..So The 2X4 Broke And The Ibeam Hit My Had Broke My Arm And Landed On My Leg..I Just Had Couple Of Stiches On My Head I Have About 8Inch Scare On My Arm Because They Had To Put A Meatl Plate, In My Leg I Have A Mettal Rod 2 Screws Around My Ankle And 2 Screws Around My Knee.Plus I Have A Scare From When The Bone Broke On My Leg It Came Out ..And Scares From The Cots The Doc Had To Do To But All The Stuff In So I Have 7 Scares 4 Screws 1 Mettal Rod 1 Mettal Plate From The Accdinet....Schould I Talk To The Adjuster Or Get A Lawer?The Reason Im Asking I Know The Adjuster Is Going Try To Keep The Price As Low As Possible And The Lawer Is Going To Take A Cut To..So Which Is Better Or Is The Same???
In your opinion, is what the adjuster offering a fair settlement for your injury? That's the decision. Treat this like any decision to sue someone--give them a chance to make things right, and if it looks like they aren't willing to make it right, then sue them to try to force them to make it right.
If the adjuster is trying to low ball you, you'll be able to tell. What has this injury cost you? If you tell the adjuster about an expense you have and he replies 'we don't pay for missed worktime' or whatever else you feel you should be compensated for, then get a lawyer--you won't beat a lawyer in court without a lawyer unless you are so obviously on the right side that any smart lawyer would have given up and settled with you. But if the WC insurance company does seem to be offering you a fair deal, don't go and hire a lawyer just to see if there is more money to be had--the lawyer will take all of that and then some. If they are being fair with you, don't make trouble and slow down their getting a check to you. If they aren't being fair with you, simply getting a lawyer forces them to negotiate with someone who knows what costs they are and are not responsible for--and if it does wind up in court, you'll need a lawyer.
Buying And Reselling, What Are The Legal Conditions On Relabeling Or Adding A Logo?
I Am Buying A Product But I Want To Re-Size It And Add My Own Type Of Logo Then Resell (This Is In Canada But Will Be Shipping Worldwide). I Was Wondering What The Legal Terms Are On This. I Would Assume That It Is Allowed. For Example: If I Buy Towels From A Factory And Label/Logo Them And Then Resell, Could I Face Any Legal Issues.
I would talk to a lawyer if I were you. I'm unsure of the laws in Canada, but I am certain that you could face a lawsuit if you were to do that in the US. Are you taking plain items and branding them with a logo? If that is the case then it might not be illegal. But if you are taking already branded items and altering them then selling them as your own you could face legal issues. Contact a lawyer or the manufacturer of the product you're redesigning. Either should be able to tell you what the legalities are in this.
What Was It Like Having A Social Security Disability Lawyer Working On Your Claim?
I Don'T Feel Like My Disability Attorney Has Been Trying To Win My Case, But I Don'T Know What'S Normal Or What I Should Expect. I Want To Know What Other People Experienced With Their Social Security Disability Lawyer, So I Can See How It Compares To Mine. Here Are Some Questions:
How Many Times Did You Speak With Your Attorney? (I'M Only Interested In How Many Times You Spoke Directly With Your Attorney, Not Their Assistant.)
What Kind Of Information Did Your Lawyer Get From You?
Did He/She Talk To You About Your Past Job Duties Or Have You Fill Out Any Questionnaires?
Did Your Lawyer Or Someone From His/Her Office Help You Fill Out Any Of The Paperwork From The Ssa?
What Did Your Lawyer Do To Prepare You For Your Hearing? Did He Meet With You Beforehand? If So, How Long Before? In General, What Did You Discuss? Did You Go Over Your File Together Or Talk About How You Should Answer The Judges Questions Etc.?
How Involved Was Your Lawyer During Your Actual Hearing? Did He/She Present Any Evidence Or Ask You Any Questions? Did Your Lawyer Ask The Vocational Expert Any Questions?
Anything Else You Can Think Of?
I Really, Really Appreciate Anyone Who Can Take A Few Minutes To Answer My Questions. This Is Very Important To Me.
First there is no reason to retain the services of an attorney until AFTER you've filed the request for a hearing. Once the hearing has been filed there isn't much an attorney can do until close to the time the hearing is held. My sister filed for disability based upon a mental disorder and shortly after she got her attorney he arranged a consultative exam. It was two years before the hearing was held and that was her only contact with him until they were both notified of the hearing.
Many, but not all, of the attorneys send their secretaries or clerks to the social security office to photocopy all of the medical related records in the social security file - don't know what they do now since SS has gone paperless and everything is scanned into the computers. Perhaps they have access via computer.
I can only tell you that people who have an attorney who is familiar with social security disability law and regulations have an edge over those who don't especially if the attorney is aware of the vocational aspects of the law and how they apply to the disabled. Those attorneys can generally provide a strong case taking into account the medical evidence and vocational aspects of the case.
I was allowed into the hearing room for my sister's hearing and her attorney brought up points he wanted the ALJ to consider which wouldn't otherwise have been raised by my sister. The ALJ paid absolutely no attention to the lengthy report the psychiatrist wrote up who set up by my sister's attorney - the ALJ actually said that he thought it was worthless because, obviously, the psychiatrist would say whatever the attorney wanted him to say. But that was that ALJ (I was shocked to tell you the truth) - doesn't mean all ALJs would disspell a report simply because the psychiatrist represented my sister and her attorney.
All in all, if I had a claim pending with social security and filed for a hearing, I would sure get myself an attorney and I would recommend others do so as well.
There were two attorneys who often represented SS and SSI claimants in the six counties my office serviced and I wish I could have told their clients to get someone else - but we couldn't do that - I suspect many a claimant lost benefits because of them. One of them never filed anything on time and claimants actually lost out on appeals because that attorney was supposed to have filed the appeals for them and he never did. Claimants should always file their own appeals.
Questions On Criminal Lawyer
What Type Of Job Is This?
Is This Similar To Defence Lawyer?
What Type Of Crime Do Crimnal Lawyers Deal With?
Criminal lawyers are one of two types. Prosecutors work for a government agency (Federal, state or local) and they prosecute people who are charged with crimes. Defense lawyers defend those folks. Defense lawyers are usually in private practice, either in a firm or on their own but some work for the public defender's office. The type of crimes that a specific lawyer in private practice will defend is up to that lawyer.
Seeking Legal Advice - California Labor Laws - Need Lawyer - How Do I Begin A Lawsuit Against Corporation?
I Live In Northern California, A Back In December A Huge Corporate Restaurant Opened Up In My Hometown And I Was Part Of The Initial Staff Of Waiters Hired For Opening. I Know California Labor Laws Are Sensitive So I'M 99.99% Positive I Have A Case. Also, One Of My Former Coworkers Was Suing The Restaurant, No Class-Action Lawsuit, And I Heard Through The Grapevine That She Received $20,000 Out Of Court...
Long Story Short The Grand Opening Wasn'T So Grand; It Was Hectic, Unorganized, Some Of Us Would Work 8-12 Hour Shifts Without Lunch Breaks (Even If We Did Get A Lunch Break It Was Usually Within The First Hour Of Our Shift, Or Last Hour Before We Closed, So We Would Would Work Several Hours Straight With No Breaks), We Were Never Payed Overtime For Working More Than 8 Hour Shifts (My Stubs Read Reg Hrs: 8.00, Ot Hrs: 8:00).
It Was Simply Chaotic, And It Was Difficult To Keep Track Of My Hours Because To Top It Off The Managers Would Clock Me Out In Order For Them To &Quot;Finish [Their] Work&Quot; At The End Of The Night, So Sometimes I Would Be Busting My A$$ Off At 3:00Am Cleaning The Restaurant, Once I Finished And Did My Turn-In I Would Try To Clock-Out...Surprise!!!...I Was Already Clocked Out!!! Since I Was Already Clocked-Out I Couldn'T Print My Time-Slip.
I Would Complain To The Manager That I Didn'T Like The Fact That They Modified My Time, My Excuse Was That I Liked To &Quot;Keep Track Of My Hours&Quot;, But They Would Tell Me That I Could Get A Print-Out Later, That I Will Get Paid For The Hours I Worked Because They Would &Quot;Adjust The Time Later&Quot;, That If They Didn'T Clock Me Out They Would Have To Stay Until I Cleaned Up The Restaurant Until They Could Do Their Own Paperwork, Etc., Etc.
The Point Is I Couldn'T Get Any Time Slips From The Computer To Prove The Time I Clocked Out Because They Would Clock Me Out* I Know This Is Illegal*
I Would Put Up With This Because Times Are Tough And At Least I Had A Job (Keyword Being 'Had') So I Wanted To Keep My Job And Not Get On Management'S Bad Side. Well Sure Enough Business Died Down, Several People Were Laid Off, And I Was One Of The Many Who Was Reduced From Working 5 Shifts A Week, Down To 1 Shift Every Every 2 Weeks. Once They Told Me I Was Only Going To Be Scheduled 1 Shift Every Other Week I Gave Up And Put In My 2 Week Notice After Putting Up With These Working Conditions For 4 Months. It Was Almost An Inconvenience To Work 1 Night Every 2 Weeks, I Couldn'T Keep Up With The New Menus, Rules, And Policies As It Was.
I Want To Pursue A Lawsuit Against This Corporation, But I Need All The Help I Can Get As To How To Approach It. I Would Need To Talk To A Lawyer, And I Don'T Have Money Up Front To Pay For A Lawyer (No Job), So I Am Hoping Someone Can Guide Me Through This Pro Bono In The Beginning Until The End, And Of Course Fees Can Be Paid After This Ordeal Is Over. Thank You For Reading, I Appreciate Any Advice.

Question Regarding A Legal Will.?
When My Father Passed Away In July My Sister Was In Charge Of Distributing The Money Leftover After The Funeral Services Were Paid For. The Amount For Each Of Us (6 Kids) Is Around 1, 200. One Of My Brothers And My Other Sister Both Got Half Of That Or Less And As For Me And My Brother Here We Have Yet To Get Anything 3 Months Later.
I Called Her About It And We Came To This Issue In Our Conversation Her Tone Changed And Seemed Disinterested In Setting Up The Transfer With Her Bank Td, Wich Is The Same I Deal With. Since That Conversation She Will Not Answer Her Home Or Cell Phone When I Call And I Have Tried Numerous Times So Clearly She Is Trying To Avoid Paying The Rest Of The Kids.
I Don'T Know Too Much About The Process But I Am Almost Positive She Is Breaking The Law By Not Doing What Was Said In The Will.
Should I Contact The Insurance Company That My Dad Dealt With?
Take Her To Court?
I Don'T Know What To Do At This Point...
Kinda Sad That She Is Doing This To Us I Always Knew She Was A Dishonest Gold Digger.
Probate matters tend to reveal a person's true colors................
Get an attorney. For your own protection, get an attorney. >>>>>But I would make it clear, from the very beginning, that this estate probably qualifies for "small estate administration".<<<<<
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
>>>Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle Estate Law. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
Go to your local Public Library. Ask the Reference Librarian for their "MARTINDALE-HUBBELL" - and/or on the computer www.martindale.com - to find an attorney based on practice, geography, etc.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
Since your father had a Will, your sister SHOULD have filed this with the Probate Court. THIS IS PUBLIC RECORD. Go to the Probate Court of the county seat of the county that your father lived in. Ask for a copy of your father's Will. (Take a little bit of money to pay for copies.) I would also ask if a probate case had been opened for your father - GET COPIES!
BUT, if the only money to be distributed is from an insurance policy, if the insurance policy specifically named your sister as the beneficiary, there probably is nothing you can do. If an insurance policy specifically names a beneficiary, this is considered "contractual" and is NOT under the jurisdiction of a probate court.
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
