Slip And Fall?
I Was Walking To My Car In A Apartment Complex Parking Lot And Slipped And Fell On Black Ice Onto My Side And Badly Hurt My Elbow/Lower Back Area. I Had On Tennis Shoes (Shouldnt Matter) Jeans-Tee Shirt- Cant Blame On Dress...The Ice Was Inbetween My Car And The Car Next To Mine. Should I Bring It To The Attention Of The Manager? (Not Like They Do S*** Anyways). 2 Days Later Were I Landed Still Is In Pain.
You can bring it to their attention, but if you're looking for a law suit, it's not going to happen. If they are deliberately ignoring a problem brought on by Mother Nature, they may possibly be liable; but black ice in a winter location is normal and expected.
You should never, ever go out in wintery conditions dressed innappropriately. There have been cases of people falling and being unable to get up or get help; they froze to death because no one found them until it was too late. At least put your winter coat on next time you go outside in freezing weather, and take your cell phone.
Lawyers Win Or Lose—Behind Closed Doors?
How Exactly Do Lawyers Talk To Each Other… How Does One Side Decide There Are Going To Win And Other Side Lose? For Example: Do They Talk To Each Other Saying… One Client Has More Money So They Split It Between Them To Win, Do They Know Each Other Well Enough Or Trade Cases To Win/Lose?
I only practice business/commercial litigation and I can tell you behind closed doors, most lawyers are very polite and also very ethical. Most of the time when we decide to settle a case, we do it on the basis of who has the stronger case, what the client is willing to pay to settle (and if the client is willing to settle at all - some have an axe to grind), and how much it will cost to try the case and the risks in that. It is a complicated dance at times and there is a fair amount of negotiating, but most of it is above board and ethical rules mandate that all offers of settlement must be taken to the client.
If You Are Paying Your Ex-Wife Alimony, Can Alimony Be Discontinuted If She Becomes Pregnant By Her Live-In?
If He Is Paying Child Support And Alimony To Ex-Wife, Which All The Money Goes Towards Her Rent And Bills,Can Alimony Discontinue If She Becomes Pregnant By Her Live-In Boyfriend. Lawyer Says If Proof He Lives There Alimony Is Discontinued, But There Is No Way Of Proving Since His Name Isn'T On Any Of The Bills. It'S Clear As Day He Does Live There Too. So Basically Ex-Husband Would Be Paying For Rent And All Utilities For Ex-Wife,Her Boyfriend, Their Baby, And His Two Kids? Does That Make Any Sense?
Usually divorce decrees stop alimony upon re-marriage, and one could argue that this is the equivalent of re-marriage, but you will need proof -- your lawyer is correct. About child support -- that is almost never stopped so long as the child is a minor. However, ask your lawyer about that!
Is Law Office Foundation Certificate, The Same As A Paralegal Certificate?
I Am Currently Looking To Get Enrolled Into A Paralegal Program, And I Have Realized That The Options Are A Certificate, Associates, And Bachelors Degree. Personally I Would Like To Obtain The Certificate First, Get Employed, Then Further My Education In The Field. My Question Is, The College I Am Thinking Of Going Through Offers A Law Office Foundation Certificate And I Am Wondering If This Is The Same As A Paralegal Certificate?
I have never even heard of a "law office foundation certificate". You need to be very careful of these "law schools" - a lot of them are just scams. Any classes that you take should be ABA approved.
"Certificates" are a waste of time and/or money. In today's tight job market, legal employers want their employees to have BACHELORS degrees.
Please 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. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. 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)
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. are being laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Regarding being a Paralegal: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with Bachelors 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.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.
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..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of >>>Healthcare or Information Technology! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

What Are The Construction/Insurance Laws In Nc?
My Boyfriend Has Work In Construction For 8 Years But He Just Quite His Job Due To Harsh Working Conditions And He Wants To Start Working Independently Or With Another Work Who Quite As Well And He Says That Its Ok To Not Have Insurance If There Is 3 People Or Less Doing A Job. I Was Just Wanting To Know If This Is True.
You mean workers compensation insurance? NC law says:
"If you are a sole proprietorship, partnership, LLC, estate, or trust, you are required by law to carry coverage once you have three (3) employees who are regularly employed, in addition to the sole proprietor, partners, formulators of the LLC, executor of the estate, and bearer of the trust. It does not matter if these employees are full time, part time, regular seasonal or family members."
