Accidents resulting in personal injuries are a common occurrence in our lives. In addition to auto accidents, we may suffer personal injuries or property damage in accidents in the home, at business premises or on streets and sidewalks. Injuries may also be caused by carelessness of doctors, lawyers and other professionals. You can protect yourself by consulting a lawyer if you suffer an injury or property damage as a result of an accident.
Bankruptcy and Debt Matters
There are many reasons for financial difficulties, such as loss of a job, death of a bread winner, too many credit card purchases, identity theft or inaccurate information clouding your credit. Money problems can be emotionally wrenching and seriously damage family relations. In some cases, it is possible to negotiate with creditors to lower payments or to accept lump sum settlements. In other cases, bankruptcy protection might help those who are unable to pay their bills.
The criminal justice system protects us by arresting and jailing criminals. Yet not everyone who is arrested is the bad guy. Someday, you, a family member, or a close personal friend may be accused of committing a crime and arrested. If you have been arrested, it is important to know your rights.
