4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you want a lawyer at all, you must work closely with them as a way to win your case. No matter how competent they may be, they're going to need your help. Listed below are four important approaches to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're gonna reveal to them. Privilege means everything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know all things in advance - especially information one other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of most information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they must help them win. 3. Show Up Early For Those Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, by being promptly, each and every time. In reality, because you may have to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any type of crime, it's important so that you can prove to the legal court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward increasing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Birth Injury!!!!?
I Had A Natural Birth And Shoulder Dystocia Occured....My Baby Got Stuck And Her Shoulder Got Stretched Coming Out Of Me....She Now Has Erbs Palsy....I Go To Therapy 2 Times A Week We Do Range Of Motions With Her Everyday....She Was Born Only Moving Her Fingers Now She Trys To Lift Her Arm But Still Cant All The Way Up Or Bend Her Elbow...They Said Hopefully In 6 Weeks She Will Start..... I Was Wondering Is There Anyway I Can Maybe Sue? What Can I Do Now? Any Advice?

I'm a physical therapist and not a lawyer, so I'm answering this from the other side, but I don't understand why you're not putting all of your energy into getting your baby better and more importantly, thanking God that the dr. did get her out of you in time. It is not uncommon to see these injuries in newborns and almost every baby I've ever treated with this recovered completely and the few who didn't had very little impairment. I believe the national statistic is that 90% of these babies fully recover.
But apparently this is something that is an easy case to get a lawyer to take. Just type in erb's palsy and you'll get more findings on lawyers websites than actual information about erb's palsy, or brachial plexus injuries, or even how/why it happens and what you as a parent can be doing to give your baby the best chance at fully recovering.
According to these sites, you could probably win a lawsuit if you had gestational diabetes, or not even that, but that your doctor knew you were going to have a large baby. How much did your baby weigh? Did your ob/gyn tell you the entire time that you were going to have a large baby? If you can make your way thru all the lawyer websites, there is one site from the American Family Physician that is very informative about this. It says that studies have shown that most babies who get this are not at all babies who were very large, therefore making it next to impossible to determine which pregnancies are at risk. And thats exactly what these lawsuits are based on: that your dr knew the whole time that you were going to have a large baby and should have taken necessary precautions such as inducing labor early or by having a c-section. Here's a few quotes from this article on that:

The single most common risk factor for shoulder dystocia is the use of a vacuum extractor or forceps during delivery.2 However, most cases occur in fetuses of normal birth weight and are unanticipated, limiting the clinical usefulness of risk-factor identification.6
Evidence is lacking to support labor induction or elective cesarean delivery in women without diabetes who are at term when a fetus is suspected of having macrosomia.

It then tells of all the steps a dr should go through to get the baby out as quickly as possibly doing the least damage possible. As a last resort this is what the options are:
1.Deliberate clavicle fracture
Direct upward pressure on the mid-portion of the fetal clavicle; reduces the shoulder-to-shoulder distance.
2.Zavanelli maneuver: Cephalic replacement followed by cesarean delivery; involves rotating the fetal head into a direct occiput anterior position, then flexing and pushing the vertex back into the birth canal, while holding continuous upward pressure until cesarean delivery is accomplished
3. General anesthesia
Musculoskeletal or uterine relaxation with halothane (Fluothane) or another general anesthetic may bring about enough uterine relaxation to affect delivery.
4. Abdominal surgery with hysterotomy
General anesthesia is induced and cesarean incision performed, after which the surgeon rotates the infant transabdominally through the hysterotomy incision, allowing the shoulders to rotate, much like a Woods corkscrew maneuver. Vaginal extraction is then accomplished by another physician.
5. Symphysiotomy
Intentional division of the fibrous cartilage of the symphysis pubis under local anesthesia has been used more widely in developing countries than in North America. It should be used only when all other maneuvers have failed and capability of cesarean delivery is unavailable. (Basically, your doc takes his scalpel and cuts a larger hole in your pubic bone. Ouch)

This all could have happened to you and your baby. If your doctor had not gotten your daughter out quickly (therefore stretching the shoulder and causing erb's palsy) the longer your baby would have been without oxygen and the more severe her case of cerebral palsy would have been if you were lucky, if you weren't lucky, you would have given birth to a stillborn daughter. I know that we go thru 9 months of pregnancy and all expect to have normal labor and deliveries and then perfect healthy babies. Its supposed to happen that way and it is simply not fair when something goes wrong. But placing blame on a baby getting stuck on your pubic bone is not going to help your daughter recover, it will take her mom's 100% focus off her therapy and onto revenge. And yes, I do know what its like to go through something like this. With my 2nd daughter, I was in labor for several hours having many decels with almost every contraction. When it was about time to start pushing, my dr checked me and felt her cord coming out first (prolapsed cord), we were rushed to have an emergency c-section, I had to be put completely under with noone in the room with me, and I had a blue, non-moving, non-breathing baby. With resusitation, she was fine and never even required oxygen. I was told by many many people to sue my ob/gyn, that he should have known hours before this happened with all of her heart decels that she something was wrong and he should have never let it get to the point where her heartrate was 35 before taking me back for a c-section. Maybe not, but I don't have it in me to sue the man who was the one who ended up saving my baby's life, even if this was all caused by his "inaction". He could have done something quicker, but I certainly don't blame him for me having a prolapsed cord. I would rather focus on my 2 beautiful healthy daughters and then as a physical therapist, focus on helping those beautiful babies that weren't as lucky as mine. Sometimes there's just no one to blame and even if there is, what does that help? Go through the court system and stress, lose work days, lose time with your child, lose your mind and sanity, for a case that will likely take years to settle, you may or may not win, and if you do, it will almost certainly not be enough money to pay you back for all the time and stress it has caused. If I were you, I'd focus on doing the therapy with your baby and getting her well. Maybe you could even start a support group in your town to mother's and babies (and dads) affected by this. Put all of this energy into something positive for your daughter. Your love for her is obvious, just get that baby better and focus on how to treat it, and how you and others can prevent it from happening to anyone else ever again.

I wish you and your daughter the best of luck. As I said above, it is very likely that she will fully recover and you'll never even know she had erb's palsy. She'll be fine! If she's already trying to lift her arm, she's in the home stretch! That article stated that nearly all palsies resolve completely in 6 to 12 months, so don't get discouraged if she isn't where they said she'd be in 6 weeks. Just keep taking her to therapy, do the home exercise program your therapist has shown you, and as the saying goes: that which doesn't kill us makes us stronger! You are already the best mother this little girl could possibly ask for, God will take care of you both.

What Is The Purpose Of Discovery Concerning Relevant Legal Information?
And Why Would It Be Unethical To Suppress Pivotal Information; Whether There Is A Meeting Of The Minds, Or An Actual Exchange Of Goods/Services?

Discovery: A procedure designed to allow disclosure of information between Plaintiffs and Defendants. Written questions, oral questioning, document production and admissions requests are generally allowed. Discovery was designed to to prevent trial by ambush.

Interrogatories: Written questions from Plaintiff to Defendant, or from Defendant to Plaintiff. The questions are mailed to the Plaintiff, Defendant or the attorney for response in writing. The answers or responses are usually due between 20-30 days.

Deposition: A procedure where verbal questions are asked a Plaintiff or Defendant for immediate response. Depositions are usually recorded by a court reporter, who swears the person to tell the truth before questioning begins.,/p>

Production of Documents: The method of obtaining documents from the other party relevant to the case such as all documents a party intends to introduce at trial.

Requests for Admissions: Written questions where you request the other party to admit or deny some relevant fact.

Objections: Objections may be made to all discovery questions if the questions are not relevant, or likely to lead to the discovery of relevant evidence.

Civil Procedure Rules: Virtually all states have adopted a version of civil procedure rules which include rules dealing with discovery.
Illinois Discovery Provisions

The Illinois Discovery Provisions are contained in the Illinois Supreme Court Rules. The discovery provisions apply in divorce actions.

Discovery Methods: Information is obtainable through the following methods: depositions upon oral examination or written questions, written interrogatories to parties, discovery of documents, objects or tangible things, inspection of real estate, requests to admit and physical and mental examination of persons. Duplication of discovery methods to obtain the same information should be avoided. Rule 201(a)

Scope of Discovery: A party may obtain by discovery full disclosure regarding any matter relevant to the subject matter involved in the pending action, whether it relates to the claim or defense of the party seeking disclosure or of any other party. Rule 201(b)

Sequence of Discovery: Unless the court orders otherwise, methods of discovery may be used in any sequence. Rule 201(e)

Stipulations: If the parties so stipulate, discovery may take place before any person, for any purpose, at any time, or place, and in any manner.

Owi/Dwi Scenario During Arrest?
Lets Say You'Ve Been Drinking And Your Car, For Whateva Reason (Stuck, Battery Dies, Flat Tire) Can No Longer Be Driven At The Moment The Police Show Up And You'Re Arrested. Would This Be Considered A Valid Argument In Court Given The Fact That At The Moment Law Enforcement Was Present, The Vehicle Could No Longer Be Operated Whether The Driver Intended On Driving Or Not? This Is Granted That You'Re In An Compromising Position (On The Side Of The Road At An Awkward Angle, Off To The Side In The Median Or Stuck At A Light Or Exit) That Suggest That You May Have Been Drinking. I Understand Its Against The Law, But I Just Wanted To See If Anyone Had Better Insight Into This Scenario Than I Do. Thx

DUI/DWI laws do not require that you necessarily have operated the car, only that you are in actual physical control of the vehicle.

The definition of "actual physical control" is going to vary by state. In my state, if you are the only person there at the the vehicle, that is sufficient to prove that you drove it there. If the keys are either in the ignition or on your person, or if the engine is running, this also meets the definition.

How your vehicle is parked at the time really won't matter, though it could help the case against you. If the officer stops for a disabled vehicle and he smells alcohol on you or in the car, that's all he needs to give you sobriety tests.

What Is A Relationship Between Legal Aid And Legal Clinic?

Legal aid is usually a group of attorneys, some of whom are volunteers, who help out with certain types of civil cases, such as social security law, landlord-tenant law, and protective orders. There are legal aid offices in every state in the US., and in many cities.

Legal clinics usually use students at law schools and concern a wider range of cases including criminal post conviction relief such as the "Innocence Project," which you can look up.

Attorneys used to be law students. That is the relationship.

Dui Vs. Speeder'S What Is What?
How Is It Someone With A Dui Can Get There License Reenstated And Someone Cught Speededing Can'T I Would Reather Have A Sober Person That Icould Sit Down And Talk To Reather Than A Drunk Or Druguser Who Will Just Kick Bakc To Old Habbits Any Opinion Please Leave Have Date With Nbc Over This Topic And Need Many Reviews

Each state has their own DUI or DWI or some states OMVI- {operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated or under the influence} & each state ha their own Traffic code that relates to general traffic violations including but not limited to speeding.

In addition to the criminal court system that handles the criminal penalties for violating an offense which is a crime according to the state statutes, each state has what is referred to as "administrative remedies". Administrative remedies and criminal penalties are separate and are imposed by two separate entities. For example when a person receives a citation for DUI & speeding; they are usually arrested, for the DUI. A court date is set and the person can plead guilty or not guilty to the DUI. If they plead not guilty then the DUI case is set for a trial (judge or jury-again each state differs}

As part of most State laws if & when a person is convicted of a DUI, part of the criminal penalty is the loss of their driving privildges for a certain period of time. Because the law recgonizes that people need to drive in order to work and do other necessary things for basic living, IE: grocery shop. banking, post office, drive children to and from school, day care etc. the law provides for an application for reinstating driving priviledges. For first time offenders it is relatively easy to get an administrative hearing and to convince them that the need for a "restricted" drivers license is great and that the risk of driving while intoxicated again is low. If this is done then a restricted license is issued which allows the offender to drive for certain purposes only. If a person driving with a restricted license ( drive to and from work and to and from grocery store and to and from child's school, doctor etc.) is caught driving and and using the licence, rather abusing the license by driving somewhere other than permitted then they will lose the license. An example would be if a person is stopped pulling out of a liquor store for failure to signal; the officer would note the restriction on the license and issue a ticket for violation of such.

A secomd DUI offender has a more difficut time convencing an adminstrative hearing officer of the need for a restricted license. However a second offender may still be permitted a restricted license but with additional requirements such as having a breath alcohol interlock device installed in their car at the drivers own expense.

It is important to remember that in most states the criminal sanction differs from the division of motor vehicles sanction. A judge cannot omit the drivers license suspension from the sentence because it will be automatialy suspended anyway b the DMV.

Don't confuse the restricted license that occurs after a conviction with the temporary license that is issued just after the arrest for DUI that is in effect until and when a person is actually convicted of the alleged DUI.

I am not aware of any law that prevents a person who has been issued a speeding ticket from being permitted to obtain a restricted drivers license. Some states require the person to complete a drivers course before obtaining priviledges again. I suppose however that just like with enhanced dui's that once a person recieves a certain number of speeding tickets & tickets that far exceed the normal speed limit (reckless speding & speeding that increases child endangerment etc) then that person could possibly lose their driving priviledges for a longer period of time and yes I am sure there is a limit. A person could receive so many speeding tickets that they can permanetly lose their driving priveldges just as you do with a DUI 4th offense

Help! Marriage/Pre Divorce/Child Custody?
Ok My Brother And His Wife Have Been Having Problems, Sunday They Were Bickering Back N Forth, She Flipped Out, Hit & Scratched My Brother & Told Him To Leave, She Packed His Bags & He Left & Got A Hotel For The Night. They Have Been Talking/Fighting Over The Phone Since And Today He Decided He Wanted To Go Home. She Tells Him, No He Can'T Come Home, He Can'T See The Kids, She'S Taking Them And The House And Wants A Divorce. He Brings In The Higher Income And Is Very Involved In The Children'S Lives. They Have 1 Together & He Adopted Her Son After They Were Married A Few Years Back. My Question Is, What Are His Rights? Does She Have The Right To Kick Him Out And Withhold The Kids From Him? How Would He Go About Getting Back Into The House And Seeing The Children? Thank You.

Until the papers are filed he still has the right to go see the kids. Once the divorce is filed than if he has the income have him get a good divorce lawyer who will fight for joint custody. She cannot keep him from seeing the kids as he is their father. As far as the house is concern depending on whether they live in a community property state she may not get to keep the house but both will have to sell it and split any profits from the sale as well as any other assets. Now a far as alimony or spousal support will depend on how much she earns in income. If she earns enough than she may only get either a very small amount for a couple of years or none at all. Good Luck. I put a couple of legal sites below that you can ask these questions for better direction.
