In some cases, your injuries may fall under both personal injury claims and workers compensation claims. For example, dog bite cases are typically personal injury claims, but if they happen during the course and scope of your accident, they may also be workers compensation claims. Likewise, if you are driving for work and are involved in a car accident, you may be unsure whether you have a workers compensation claim or a personal injury claim.
Being charged with a felony is one of the scariest things you can experience. If you are found guilty, you will not only face prison time but also face a much more difficult life with fewer opportunities after you are released. A skilled criminal defense attorney is your number one line of defense against unjust charges and (depending on your unique situation) may be able to get your charges dropped, change the charges to something less serious, or work on a plea bargain for more lenient sentencing.
If you get into a heated argument, it can quickly escalate into a serious violent experience. One can easily get hurt when tempers flare. If you hurt someone and he or she decides to report his or her injuries, it is considered domestic violence and you will be charged as such. In order to get the best defense possible, you will need to retain a domestic violence attorney as soon as possible.
When every means of legally entering the country seem to be exhausted, there is a last-resort opportunity that might help you bring a family member into the country. A humanitarian visa is available under special circumstances and could potentially be used to buy time to explore other options. If you have a family member who has been denied a visa or green card, here is what you need to know.
If conditions at your job recently reached the untenable point, you may have chosen to save your sanity (and your health) by turning in your notice of resignation rather than waiting for matters to implode or for you to be terminated. Unfortunately, in many cases, employees who have quit instead of being fired may find themselves on the receiving end of a denial of unemployment benefits. Are you still eligible for these benefits if your unemployment is due to your unwillingness to go along with an unsafe or unethical work environment rather than being fired?
