What Would Happen If I (Slipped) And Fell At Work? How Could I Collect Money, Or Sue If I Didnt Get (Enough)?
I Work At A Corporation Type, Industrial Size Restaraunt Like Texas Longhorn Or Unos, How Could I Make Money Off The Corporation/Industry, And Beat Them If I Had To Go To Court? Slip And Fall Without A Caution Sign Or Something Along Those Lines.
If your employer carriers workers compensation insurance, in most states, you're not ALLOWED to sue. Carrying workers comp - a no fault coverage providing medical and lost wages benefits to injured employees - grants the employer immunity to a lawsuit.
In a few states, you can choose to EITHER take workers comp, OR sue your employer - however, you'd have to prove that your employer was deliberately negligent. With the no-fault, you do NOT have to prove employer fault.
Workers comp, does NOT pay "pain and suffering". It pays benefits AS DEFINED BY YOUR STATE. Usually, that's medical bills. If a doctor says you're not able to work, you can get lost wages, if your time-off period is more than (insert days here, which varies by state, usually 3 - 21). If you end up permanently disabled, the state also has a calculation of what you are entitled to, as a payment - which also varies by state.
Slip and fall without a caution sign up isn't enough - that's not a high enough degree of negligence, for an employee.
That's why it rarely makes sense to hire a lawyer for an uncontested workers comp claim - the dollar amounts are set by the state, and aren't negotiable. You're giving away money you don't have to, to the attorney, and adding an additional 18 months to three years to the settlement time.

Real Estate Attorney Vs Real Estate Agent?
I Often Hear The Terms Real Estate Attorney, Agent And Broker. If Buying A Home, Which One Would I Need? What Are The Pro'S And Con'S Of Each?
An agent is the person who can get you into the homes that are listed with real estate companies in your area. They call and make an appointment, get the key to the place, find out the details, etc...
A broker is the agents boss, and ultimately responsible for their actions, making sure they are legal (not making false claims about property, etc). The broker may or may not buy into a franchise like Century 21, Coldwell Banker, etc., but each office is independently owned.
A real estate attorney is the person who ultimately exchanges the title between you and the buyer/seller. They research the property to make sure there are no problems with the title (families fighting over ownership, survey issues, etc) and then handle all the calculations with the bank an closing cost, disbursement of funds, filling of paperwork at the courthouse, etc...

Lots to choose from! Good luck! :)
If You Are Cleared By A Jury And An Investigation Why Can You Be Retried By A Wrongful Death Charge?
Because a grand jury investigates CRIMINAL charges.... and a wrongful death charge is a CIVIL suit...
So... Suppose Mr. S killed his ex-wife, but was acquitted of criminal charges by finding of a jury. The family of the deceased could sue Mr. S in civil court, for the wrongful death of their daughter. Of course, it would not be for the purpose of punishing him by sending him to prison... it would be about money. He would be ordered to pay them monetary damages (cash... or proceeds from book sales) to compensate them for the loss of their daughter.
This is all possible because the burden of proof in a criminal trial is "beyond a reasonable doubt"... and the burden of proof in a civil trial is "by a preponderance of the evidence." (which just means there is more evidence that indicates he did it than there is that indicates he didn't do it.) He can't be sent to prison in a civil trial, but will be ordered to pay them for the loss of her life.
In cases where this happens... the criminal jury didn't feel there was proof beyond a reasonable doubt.. meaning overwhelming proof to the point you can't reasonably doubt he's guilty... but the civil jury or court felt there was more evidence that pointed to his guilt than his innocence.
Do I Need Any Legal Help?
Me And My Girlfriend Have Been Together For 2 Years Are Planning On Getting Married But Her Dad Has Taken Her Birth Certificate, Visa, And Passport And Has Mailed Them To His Family In Mexico. My Question Is What Can She Do To Get Her Papers Back? Can We Take Him To Court?? Another Thing She Is Not Legal Here In California And Her Dad Has Told Her If She Wants Get Them, She Has To Go Back To Mexico.
She needs to go to the nearest Mexican consulate and file for replacement birth papers and passport.
She came to America when she was 15 with a visa, which means that she isn't' technically an illegal immigrant, she is just out of status. If you were brought to the U.S when you were under 18, it doesn't count, because as a minor, you aren't responsible for your actions.
When you get married, you need to file an i-130, an i-485, an i-765, an i-693- and an i-864 concurrently so that she can adjust her status to that of a legal permanent resident. You can find these forms at http:// USCIS.GOV
You don't necessarily need a lawyer to file, the forms are pretty simple and come with instructions.
P.S- Tell her not to leave the country. Her father is setting her up. If she leaves the country, she won't be able to come back for three to ten years. Go through the consulate.
Once she gets her Green card, she'll be able to travel again.
What Kinds Of Technology Do Lawyers Use?
I Am Currently Doing A Project At School For My Careers Class, And They Ask Us What Kind Of Technology Our Career Needs. I Have Not Been Able To Find That Much Information About This Part Of My Project And Help Would Be Of Great Value.
First, lawyers use PCs and servers to prepare documents, spreadsheets, etc. So they also use printers, scanners, etc.
Lawyers use databases and large servers to scan and search large numbers of documents for big cases.
