Now.. Exactly What Does This Have To Do With Making Health Care More Affordable?
Trial lawyers are one of the biggest lobbyists for the left. Trial lawyers make their money with outrageous verdicts, which is why trial lawyers don't want tort reform. It will eat into their wallets which would limit their ability to contribute to campaigns and lobby in DC.
So, lets review. Money is the real reason why dems won't reform our current tort laws...now who is the party of the rich?

Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions. Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................

I Am Looking For Information On The Law Concerning Wrongful Death?
Is There A Statute Of Limitation For A Wrongful Death In Canada?
I'm not sure what exactly you're referring to. Are you talking about suing someone for having negligently caused a wrongful death? If that is the case, the law is governed by provincial law and may vary depending on the province or territory where the wrongful death occurred.
There is no criminal code offence called "wrongful death" per se in Canada although there are other crimes dealing with culpable homicide.

Can I Get Legal Advice?
I Am 25 Y/O And I Was Trying To Join The Army And I Told The Recruiter I Had A Juvenile And Explained What It Was For. He Told Me Not To Say Anything Because My Record Is Sealed. As Well As I Have A Sub-Facial Cyst On My Face Even Though You Cant See It Unless I Smile He Told Me Not To Smile. Well After Several Day Of Paperwork He Told Me I Ask To Many Damn Questions And To Basically Shut-Up. The Day Of My &Quot;Hot Seat&Quot; He Asked His Commanding Officer About My Juvenile Record So They Had To Look Into It. Well They Did And There Was Something I Didn'T Know About In It. Apparently When I Was 8 I Said Something I Shouldn'T Have And Even Though I Didn'T Go To Court I Received A Felony. The School Has No Record Of This (It Happened At School). And At 7 My Step-Mom Accused Me Of Stealing Something Of $500+ Value And Even Though I Don'T Remember Going To Court I Received Another Felony. After Telling Me &Quot;You Wasted My Time, Get Out Of My Office You Piece Of ****&Quot; And Making Me Walk Home (20+ Miles (I Live In Jacksonville By The Regency Mall And There Office Was By The Orange Park Mall) Which Took Me From 3 Pm- A Little After 1030 Pm) And The Recruiter Told Me To Leave My Phone At Home, And I Didn'T Have Any Money On Me For Anything To Drink. My Family Has No Recollection On The Charge Of Me Stealing At 7 And My Grandmother Said She Heard Something About A Threat I Made At School But She Said It Wasn'T A Terroristic Threat. Now My Question Is There A Way To Join The Military Still? If I Would Have Keep My Mouth Quite Like The Recruiter Told Me Would It Have Been A Big Problem Later Own? And Why Did He Keep Telling Me To Answer No On Everything Even Though I Was Allergic To Bee Stings? And Told Me To Never Say Anything About Breaking My Hand (Told Me It Never Happened). And Told Me To Say I Never Had Surgery Of Any Kind Even Though I Did? Why Was He A Jerk And Why Did He Tell Me To Lie And Get Mad When I Was Trying To Be Honest With Him On Everything So No Surprises Would Pop Up And Me Get Jail Time Or A Fine?
A lot of recruiters are civilians who get paid by the number of recruits. So some will lie, cheat, etc. to get those recruits. There have been a lot of problems with recruiters lying. The worst part is when they lie to recruits - things like telling them they can get out when they want or promising them the job they want. Sadly, even if someone is lied to, they are stuck with joining.
Be fully honest and see what happens. Don't let him talk you into lying.
I also don't believe you. You can't get a felony charge without going to some form of court, especially not as an 8 year old.
If your story is true, you have a lot more problems than this.
Military Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support, Etc... ????
My Fiancee Is Active Duty Military (Navy). When His Divorce Was Final They Had No Custody Arrangement For The Children, And Now She Is Taking Full Advantage Of This. He Calls 5-6 Times A Week And He Never Gets A Hold Of Her To Talk To His Children. He Has Transferred To Another State And Hasn'T Seen Or Talked To Them In Over 2 Months, And Its Not For The Lack Of Trying. The Only Time He Hears From Her Is When She Asks For More Money &Quot;For The Kids&Quot;. She Is Already Remarried (To The Guy She Cheated On Him With, Whom Also Cheated On His Wife With Her), And He Is In The Navy As Well. There Is No Reason She Should Need More Money To &Quot;Support The Children&Quot;. My Fiancee Would Like To Go To Court To A) Get The Child Support Lowered, B) Get A Custody Arrangement Set Up, And C) Possibly Seek Custody Of The Children. However, He Doesn'T Feel That It Is Possible For Him To Get Any Sort Of Custdoy. The Children Respond Better To Him And He Can Financially Support Them. Any Thoughtsor Suggestions?
Custody is a hard thing. Most states tend to give custody of the children directly to the mother unless the father can prove that the mother is unfit. Being active duty military is even harder. What I would recommend is that he go in and try to atleast get joint custody. Only problem with that is that he and his childrens mother recently live in different states. Maybe the best choice is to ensure that he has written visitation rights. This will make it that if she does not allow him to see the children during the agreed upon dates she may lose custody. As for the child support, he should not care how much he is paying as long as it is going to his children.
