Lawyers Out There, Can I Sue?
In 2007 My Pregnant Sister Was Killed In A Car Accident . We Were Devastated Also Because She Was Exhausted From Her Work Sending Her On Trips Which Kept Her Out Late The Night Before Then Got Her Up Early That Morning. She Had Been Complaining To My Parents About How Tired She Was And I Complained To My Husband That They Were Running Her Ragged .
After The Accident I Couldn'T Place Blame. She Ran The Flashing Light, The Truck Driver Walked Away Without A Scratch. All We Could Do Was Grieve. Now, Today, 6 Years Later I Am Angry With Them. I Remember She Said How She Only Was Going To Get 3 Weeks Leave Instead Of 3 Months When The Baby Was Born . She Gave Them Everything, She Was So Smart And Driven, Educated And Talented, And They Took And Took . Now I Want Them To At Least Be Made To Treat Their Employees Better. I Couldn'T Hate Them Then, But Now I Want Them To Be Responsible For Their Part In Her Death . Lawyers Out There, Can I Sue Or Is It Too Late?
It is highly unlikely that you have the basis for a successful lawsuit.
First, the statute of limitations for most personal injury-type actions is two or three years. That means the lawsuit would have needed to have been filed no later than 2010.
Second, you would not have standing to sue, unless you were the personal representative of your sister's estate (usually that would be a spouse or parent).
Third, did your sister's employer hold a gun to her head, force her to go on all trips, and stay out late? Did your sister ever voice her concerns about the number of trips/the hours required by the trips? If your sister did not feel rested or alert enough to drive, it was her responsibility (not her employer's) not to get behind the wheel.
Also, if your sister's employer fell under the terms of the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), she was entitled to twelve weeks of UNPAID leave for the birth of a child. Your sister's employer may have only been willing to pay her for three weeks of maternity leave. It would have been her choice whether to remain off of work for the remaining nine weeks, without pay.
If you truly want to pursue a lawsuit, you should consult with a reputable personal injury attorney in your area. Alternatively, you may want to consult with a therapist to help with your grief.
Is Corporate Law The Same As Business/Commercial Law?
For the most part, yes. Often times the terms mean the same thing. However, some people may look at it a little different:
Some (like myself) may view corporate law as a type of business law.
Business law pertains to all the codes/laws that apply to transactions, taxes, hiring, commercial codes, etc.
In my mind, the term corporate law may pertain to just that part of the business law that deals with corporations and not smaller businesses. Corporate law tends to focus on large firms (corporations). Many times corporate law is important because these lawyers often provide legal advice to large, multinational firms. They may have to deal learn about laws in different countries. Also, if the corporation is publicly traded (ie, you can buy stock in it), then there are many more laws that the lawyer has to be aware of (sarbanes-oxley, etc).
Most non-lawyers would use the terms interchangeably.
Can You Give Any Tips For Someone Who Wants To Be A Civil Right Lawyer?
Starting This Morning I Took Interest In Lawyering. I Am 30 Years Old. I Want To Not Be In A Gang Any More And Be More Professional About Protecting My People. Any Suggestions On Getting Started, Schooling, Etc
Civil Rights, not Civil Right.
To be an attorney, you need a Bachelor's Degree first - usually in English or Political Science, although people who go to law school have many different types of degrees. I have a B.A. in English, and I think it's a good start, because lawyers need to write well and have good reading comprehension. But probably the majority of the lawyers I know got their Bachelor's in Political Science.
After you get your Bachelor's Degree, you go to law school to obtain a Juris Doctor. Going to law school requires that you take the LSAT, which is a standardized test - the score will determine what schools you get into, along with your college grade point average.
Being a lawyer requires more than desire - you need to be a very hard worker, and you need to be able to listen and learn. If you can do those things, you can be a lawyer. You just need to put in the time.
You can get financial aid to get through all the schooling, but try to get scholarships - the loans can be pretty daunting. If you borrow your way through college and law school, you'll be paying on student loans forever. I personally felt like it was worth it. Others may disagree.
After you graduate law school, you take the bar exam for the state you live in. It's a 2-3 day exam - in Michigan, for example, there's one day of multiple choice (6 hours) and one day of essay questions (6 hours). But in Texas, there's one day of short answer (3 hours), one day of multiple choice (6 hours), and one day of essay (6 hours). Every state has a different essay exam, but the multiple choice exam is the same in every state. Studying for the bar exam is usually a full time thing - most people don't work or only work part time while studying for the bar.
Once you pass the bar, you're sworn in before a judge, and voile, you're an attorney.
It's good to have big goals. Stay focused, work hard, know your limits, and listen to yourself. Good luck to you.

first of all, you don't want to ask any questions such as this that can be traced back to you and used against you. Fight fair and within the law, know your rights, and keep everything above board. Do not stoop to his level and give the judge any reason to take his side.
can you consult a lawyer or legal aide? A lawyer here in Canada gives free advice over the phone for first time callers. legal aide here is a service based on what you can afford... something to look into. do you have such a thing as dial a law, or any person to talk to at the courts for someone who is representing themselves...? I will say this... try to find a lawyer, even if it's pro bono... or one waiting and lined up "just in case" you don't want to be blind sided by your ex as he shows up with his attorney and you don't have one... it does happen. my ex and I made agreements, and I took him at his word... his word soon became mud. ( don't trust your ex at his word... but don't tell him you don't trust him, just keep all possibilities and all senerious in the back of your mind.)
Workers Comp Injury Question About Settlement?
Just Want Opinions That's All.Just Guess Please And Explain Your Guess.. How Much Of A Settlement Can I Get For Broken Ankle That Requires Surgery Just A Guess How Much Do You Think If It Last Like A Year?
It all depends on where you are at with your injury. There are a lot of factors that needs to be considered. How much damage was there, was it broken in two places, was it a fracture or a hairline fracture.
Ankle injuries depends on your age as well and range of motion, sensation and what not. Eventually as your claim comes close to closing and your doctor clear's your medically stationary or you reached maximum medical improvement (MS/MMI). You will than be rated for a permanent partial disability/impairment (PPD/PPI). Your ankle injury could be worth anywhere from $0-$25000 depending on the rating you get. If you could not return back to your normal job than you would qualify for vocational rehab which is expensive.
So lets say your injury was minor but you returned back to work w/o any problems, everything is normal, you probably could get 0-$2000.
Lets say your injury was severe enough that you did lose sensation and range of motion, or it was fused all together, you cold look at $8000+ because of the loss of motion and sensation
Most severe would be a total lose of the ankle itself where it was amputated, you could get $25,000 for that whole ankle, but it's unlikely your in that position.
It's tough to determine what the rate will be since there are no numbers. Each state is different, some states such as OR uses formulas while other such as HI uses weeks. Also the rate is different too, some states are higher rate than other states, due to cost of living.
If you get an award and your not satisfied about it, some states will allow you to challenge your PPD/PPI rating and you'll go through state reviews and they'll determine how much your rating could be. You could get more, or you might end up having to pay some back. Remember each state is different, all values is estimated so speak with your adjuster and run some numbers or get an explanation.
