Do You Think I Should Make A Personal Injury Claim?
I Was Working On Sunday And My Sister Took My 3Yr Old Daughter To An Indoor Play Centre For Her Cousins Party. Whilst There My Daughter Came Down The Slide And Banged Her Arm On The Side Of The Slide. With This She Got Upset And A Mother From The Party Who Is A Nurse Said Get Her Straight To The Hospital.So My Sister Took The Advice.I Met Them At The Hospital And My Lil Girl Has Broken Her Arm And They Think She Might Have Broken It Twice But Cannot Check With The Second Brake As There Was A Lot Of Fluid So Will Xray It Again Next Week. I Phoned The Play Centre To Complain And Find Out Why This Happened. The Woman Basically Said Because No One Reported The Accident That There'S Nothing She Can Say About It. There Was However A Sign Saying That Under 3'S Were Not Allowed. Do You Think I Have A Case As I Don'T Think This Slide Should Be Used For 3 Yrs Old
I would say no. You didn't report the accident. They didn't cause the accident it just happend. Filing a personal injury claim is why a lot of places don't have play areas anymore because everyone wants to file a claim for a broken arm. If I fell down the stairs in your home would you want me to file a claim against your homeowners because I can't walk or if I took something out of your oven and got burnt. That's what insurance & payment plans are for.
Is There A Future In Being A Business Lawyer?
I Was Wondering If 5-7 Years From Now, There Would Be A Very Good Job Money Wise, And Employment Wise For A Business Lawyer. Just Wondering If To Change My Choice And Stuff. Thanks
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons: We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. 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 - they aren't hiring legal staff. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software/law books in order to get legal work done without the expense of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc) For example: Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law. Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. I have watched as my family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. as they have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Even if you do finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), 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 in TODAY's job market!!
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 already have too many law schools. We are STILL 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.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<

Can A Personal Injury Lawyer Drop Your Case If He Feels He Wont Make Enough Money?
I Was In A Car Accident A Couple Months Ago. The Police Report Said I Was 100%Clear Of Fault And Even Gave The Other Guy A Violation For Dangerous Lane Changing. I Have Pics That Prove My Case But Of Course The Guy Works For A Large Company And They Are Fighting It. As Soon As My Attorney Was Informed By The Other Insurance Company That They Were Not Fighting The Claim, He Quit And Said It Was Not Worth His While To Take My Case Now And That I Would Need To Get A Differnt Attorney. Is This Ethical, Can He Just Quit My Case Because He Doesnt Feel He Will Make Enough Money? I Have Back Injuries And My Truck Has Around $5000.00 In Damage And I Am Afraid This Is Going To Hurt My Case. I Have Contacted Another Attorney That Said He Would Be Happy To Take My Case And It Sounds Like The Big Insurance Company Bullied My Other Attorney. Does Anyone Have Any Advise Or Have A Similar Situation That Had A Postive Outcome? I Am In Need Of Some Serious Motivation, Im Feeling Beaten Down Already.
A lawyer is, like any other businessman, in business to make money. Just as a painter will not agree to paint your house for a fee that he feels will not allow him to turn a profit, a lawyer will not take a case that he feels will not let him make money.
Now, there are ethics rules about "when" a lawyer can drop a case, but it sounds like this was easily early enough in the process that he's free to do so. (He couldn't call you at home the night before trial and drop you)
If your damages are only a few thousand dollars, and he's looking at a protracted fight against a well-funded insurance company, he may well be right that the share of the judgment he is looking at is not enough to pay for all the time he will have to invest.
The answer is to find a "hungrier" lawyer.
Juvenile Law Help???????
Following A Fight At School My 12 Yr Old Daughter Has Been Charged With Misdemeanor Battery And Conspiracy To Commit Battery.. She Admits To Offering A Couple Of Boys Money ≪$10.00≫ To Beat Up Another Boy Who Had Been Bothering Her....
What Can We Expect As Her Final Punishment? ≪She Deserves At Least Probation We Would Like To Keep Her Out Of Juvie If Possible≫
First, juvenile justice sucks, because you are not entitled to a jury trial and the judge just has to have preponderance of evidence to render guilt. Juvenile justice is suppose to "protect, not necessarily punish."
How badly was this kid beaten up? Really bad? You may have problems, if so.
DO NOT GET A PUBLIC DEFENDER! AGAIN, DO NOT GET A PUBLIC DEFENDER!
If the kid wasn't hurt too bad, and she has never been in trouble before, she will probably get probabtion and counseling. Being 12 helps to keep her out of juvie, too.
Misdemenor? I didn't read that at first. She should be OK with just probation.
Middlesex Management In Nj ..Any Experiences?Lawyers Out There??
Help.. Im Supposed To Move Into Gill Lane Apts, The Management Is Horrible. I Want To Get Out Of The Lease..Which I Signed--And Havent Received Any Copy Of.. That Hasnt Even Started Yet..Its About To Start.. But I Want My Money Back. The Management, Super And The Realtor Is Soo Rude I Could Not Believe It..
Do not ever sign a legal document that you are not given a copy of.
If it was a standard NJ Realtor lease, it will have the attorney review clause in it.
If it hasn't been 3 business days since you signed, get yourself to a lawyer and have them write a Notice of Disapproval of your lease to the landlord.
