A large number of men and women do not think about acquiring a lawyer until finally they are in desperate need. The legal difficulty may possibly be personal, like family law, for a divorce proceedings or if you are hunting for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer. It may be a criminal situation you want to be defended on. Organizations require law firms as well, no matter if they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or potentially unfair business tactics. Tax lawyers are also useful when interacting with government issues. Just like doctors, lawyers have specialties. A huge, full service law firm has numerous lawyers with numerous areas of competence, so depending on your legal issue, you can immediately hold on to the perfect lawyer to match your ongoing need without having to start your search each time you need legal help.It is most effective to obtain a lawyer or attorney you can have confidence in. You want one with a decent track record, who ishonest, reliable, and wins cases. You really want to have confidence that they will stand for you effectively and charge you reasonably for their services. From time to time a referral from a good friend or business associate can be helpful, however you should keep your options open and examine all the firms available, due to the fact when you need to have legal support, you need it rapidly and you really want the very best you can manage to pay for.

How Do I Find A Good Medical Malpractice Attorney? Search Engines, Referrals, What Can I Use?
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle Medical Malpractice/Personal Injury matters. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account? (Usually personal injury matters are paid at the end, on a "contingency" (percentage) basis.)
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
And be patient - medical malpractice cases can take 1 - 2 years (or longer) sometimes.
DON'T SIGN ANYTHING without consulting with an attorney first!
Your #1 concern is to make sure your medical bills get paid.
My guess is about 10% of personal injury matters end up in Court. BUT, when you go to a law office for a personal injury case, the attorney will immediately start preparing the matter as if it IS going to go to Court. Because they don't know for sure. So they start preparing the documents, etc. as though the case will go to Court. Most cases "settle".
This is very similar to a chess game. I have seen MANY personal injury/medical malpractice cases get settled the day before the matter was scheduled for Court It is usually resolved by the attorneys playing out their chess moves.
One thing I want to make you aware of: When someone has been involved in a medical malpractice matter, a "clock" starts ticking. If you wait too long, nothing will be able to be done for you. My suggestion is to call a lawyer asap.
Good luck to you.

Legal Advice Or Any Advice Regarding Car Phone Warehouse? Help!!!! Miss Sold A Contract What Are My Rights?
Help!.... Basically Earlier This Year I Purchased A Mobile Phone Contract From Car Phone Warehouse For A Friend Under The Circumstances That The Contract Could Later Be Changed Into My Friends Name When Hes Bank Account Had Finished Being Set Up And It Would Have Nothing To Do With Myself. The Staff Member Serving Me Confirmed That This Could Be Done And She Even Double Checked With The Manager Of The Store Who Confirmed It Would Not Be A Problem. So I Took Out The Contract Under Those Circumstances And Those Circumstances Only. Once My Friends Bank Account Got Set Up We Phoned To Try And Change The Contract Into His Name And 02 Said It Was Impossible And They Have Not Been Changing Contract Holders Names For Over 3 Years I Was Furious So I Changed All Other Details Ie Address And Bank Account And Then 02 Told Me That Car Phone Warehouse Miss Sold Me The Contract And They Were Liable To Cancel It Basically Its A Really Long Story But Below Is The Letter With All Details Of The Incident That I Sent To Car Phone Warehouse............ Please Read And Any Help Would Be Amazing.
To Whom It May Concern
On Friday The 2Nd Of January 2009, I Entered Carphone Warehouse With Mr Wilson. I Spoke To Kelly Crossley A Sales Assistant (If I Remember Correctly She Was Also New To Your Staff), About Setting Up A Contract For Mr Wilson In My Name As His Bank Account Was Not Yet Set Up. I Asked Miss Crossley If I Set Up The Contract In My Name For The Time Being All Details Of The Account Could Be Changed Into Mr Wilson’S Name, Including The Contract Itself. She Then Confirmed This With The Branch Manager. Both Staff Members Said Yes, So I Agreed To Set Up The Contract On That Condition Only.
The First Bill Was Due Around The 19Th Of January, But Mr Wilson Did Not Receive His Bank Account Details Through The Post Until Around The 14Th Of January. Both Mr Wilson And Myself Then Called O2 From The Mobile Phone On The 17Th Of January And Asked The Staff Member To Change The Details Into His Name. We Were Then Told That It Was Impossible And O2 Did Not Transfer Contracts. After Asking A Lot Of Questions And Making It Very Clear I Was Missold The Contract, O2 Then Told Me That The Only Thing They Could Do Now The Contract Was Set Up, Was To Change All Other Details I.E. The Address Of The Account And The Bank Details Into Mr Wilson’S Name. So We Did This For The Time Being. After Seeking Some Advice I Then Called Again On Saturday The 24Th Of January And Found Out That Mr Wilson Had Cancelled His Direct Debit. I Tried Once Again To Move The Account Into His Name But With No Joy… So My Next Step Was To Try And Cancel The Contract Itself. O2 Informed Me That The Only Way I Could Do So Was To Pay A Lump Sum Of All Payments For The £45 A Month 18Month Contract, As This Of Course Was Impossible For Myself To Afford, I Once Again Left With No Problems Solved. I Then Tried Again On The 4Th Of February With No Joy. And Since The 6Th Of February Mr Wilson Has Been No Longer Available To Reach. After Many Attempts To Reach Mr Wilson, I Called O2 Again On The 17Th Of February. And Was Finally Helped By A Staff Member Called Jay (Extension Number Available Upon Request). She Told Me That I Had Been Dealing With The Wrong Company And As Carphone Warehouse Missold Me The Contract, It Is Therefore Void And They Themselves Are Liable To Cancel The Contract. I Then Went Into Carphone Warehouse On The 21St Of February And Have Been Dealing With Yourself Ever Since. On That Day I Explained The Problem To Your Staff And Once Again Was Misinformed That I Could Change The Account Holders Name From Mine To Mr Wilson’S - I Told Them I Had Spoken To O2 And They Had Told Me I Couldn’T Change The Account Holders Name. So You Then Called O2 Directly To Confirm This Information And Were Told That O2 Do Not Change The Account Holder And These Terms Have Been In Action For The Past 3 Years. Please Know That The Contract Was Not Taken Out With The Intention Of Myself Being Liable For Mr Wilson For The Next 18Months, Your Staff Made The Sale On The Bases Alone That It Could Be Transferred Into His Name, Otherwise I Would Not Have Signed Anything. Therefore The Contract Was Sold Under False Pretences And Is, As Was Indicated By Kelly Crossley, Null And Void. This Is Now The Responsibility Of Carphone Warehouse To Terminate The Contract. Failure To Do So Will Leave Me With No Choice But The Refer The Matter To The Regulator. I Do Not Wish To Have Bad Credit Rating Due To Your Staff Not Knowing The Terms And Conditions Of The Contracts Being Sold In Your Store. I Keenly Await Conformation Of The Termination Of The Contract.
I would speak to citizens advice about this for better info as to cancel the contract you have to deal with the service provider as carphone warehouse are kinda like the middleman could you not try speaking to o2 again and plead your case with them they may well do it as a good will gesture unless you have any proof of carphone warehouse incorrect info you may well be stuck
take a look at the link its a forum discussing o2 and 1 of the answers on there is to sell the contract to someone else it may be worth a try it shouldn't matter to them who's name is on the contract as long as they get paid i'd certainly give them a ring and suggest it

Product Liability Question?
If An Owners Manual For A Tool Admits The Tool Can Fail Does That Release The Manufacturer From Personal Injury Liability? Wouldn'T That Mean That They Are Knowingly Selling A Product That Can Hurt Someone? Has Anyone Else Here Ever Been Hurt By An Spx Bearing Puller?
A product should be designed for expected uses. But that does not guaranty that it will not fail if used improperly or in an unforeseen way. A safety factor is used in design where a safety factor of 1 would be utmost accuracy in material consistency and testing for the intended use. But should always be a higher number (maybe 2 or more) to allow for inconsistencies in material or additional stress when used in ways not tested.
My dad was an engineer for a lawnmower company and while waiting for their court case about misuse of a lawnmower, someone else was being sued for a failed amusement ride. That naive person said they "used a safety factor of 0.5 because that made the ride more exiting". But that also made it destined to fail.
If a case is brought to court, it would be up to the court to decide if a product was being used as intended or not. So product literature is littered with disclaimers. But it is still impossible to cover all possible misuses.
Probate And Court Question?
My Father In Law Passed Away At The Beginning Of The Year And Now Everything As Far As His Debts Has Been Taken Care Of. We Asked The Court To Close His Probate Case. Around How Long Will The Court Take To Close.
Im In Nebraska If It Helps Any.
Once his creditors have been satisfied, the executor needs to file an Administration Account of all income and expenditures during the estate administration period. That gets filed with the Court in the county where your father in law last resided. Once that's filed, the Court usually takes about 30-90 days, depending on the volume on the Court docket, to approve the Account, assuming it doesn't get audited. When the Account is approved, final distribution of any assets can be made.
Keep in mind, however, that final tax returns will have to be filed and any distributions received from the estate may be subject to inheritance tax, depending on the relationship between the decedent and the beneficiary, not to mention state law.
I Need A Lawyer??????????
I Am Trying To Sue A Big Name Company, I Called The Local Lawyers I See All The Time On T.V. But They Said They Wouldn'T Handle That, I Think There Just Injury Attorneys. What Kind Of Lawyer Should I Be Looking For To Go After A Big Company?
I think you'd be careful before taking any action and you'd better discuss your case with pro bono based (free of charge) attorney in your area. This is important because you may hear good advise from the one who specialized in the area.
Anyway, since they are free of charge, you have nothing to lose to consult your problem with them. Trust me, they are very good people, very professional and willing to help you all out.
I just searched on internet for you and found 2 websites that perhaps useful for you.
You may have the complete list of top pro bono attorneys in USA on http://www.criminalsattorney.info/index-...
Just visit the website as soon as possible to get help.
Another website that I also found for the complete list of law firms (lawyer) in USA can also be found on http://www.toplawfirms.us
You may even search law firm by state, in your area.
Have a great of luck!
