How to Choose the Right Divorce LawyerWritten by Nashville
Are you unhappy with your relationship? Are you thinking about divorce? Well then, choosing right lawyer can be one of most important decisions you make when considering a divorce. According to article “How to Select a Divorce Lawyer” by Scott Morgan which was posted at www.legalclips.com, selecting a divorce lawyer to handle your family law case is a very important decision. There are a few important criteria to help in finding right divorce lawyer including focus and experience, past client testimonials, accessibility, fees and comfortability. And here are a few tips on how to get best divorce lawyer around for your case.
First, set an appointment and prepare your questions beforehand. Ask about everything that is related to your case. Through this, you’ll be able to assess if you have come to right person and realize if he can handle case for you. Also, ask about whether you‘ll be copied in on all documents. I believe that it’s very important for a lawyer to return phone calls within a day and to copy a client in on all correspondence including legal letters and documentations. It is your right to be kept fully updated on all developments of your case. More so, never think twice to inquire whether you will be charged for phone calls and for initial consultation. Always keep in mind that a lawyer cannot be able to truthfully determine a legal fee without some preliminary research and investigation. Of course, fees will vary based on complexity of case, time commitment involved, skill and experience of lawyer, etc. The payment of fees, whether partial or full, is being done at beginning of case in some cases. In other cases, lawyer might offer a payment plan.
Injuries from Minor Vehicle CollisionsWritten by Maricon Williams
Approximately 12.8 million motor vehicle accidents in United States were reported on December 2003. This amounts to about one crash per second - quite an alarming data.
To boot, we should dispel myths, misconceptions and erroneous judgment about vehicular accidents. Some say that drunk persons don’t get injured as much. This is fallacious. A study showed that occupants of vehicle who were aware of immediate danger of collision had less severe injuries and considerably less at risk. Another erroneous assumption is that amount of injury is directly proportionate to amount of damage to car. There can be grave inverse correlation between vehicle damage and injury levels. As vehicle becomes more rigid or inflexible, damage costs are lessened however occupant is susceptible to an increasing potential for injury.
Aside from aforementioned assumption, others also believed that few residual spinal problems result from MVA injuries. The truth is that spinal injury is primary concern in a collision. Minor injuries include cervical spine trauma, neck injuries, soft tissue abnormality, cervical-thoracic injury and post MVA disabilities.
Another misconception is that if a vehicle has a 2.5 m.p.h. bumper and said bumper was not damaged, impact was under 2.5 m.p.h. Empirical evidence discloses that in vehicle to vehicle collisions, bumpers will not likely be damaged until bumper standard speed has been exceeded by a factor of 2 to 8 times. It is noteworthy that design of modern bumpers often prevents direct observation of bumper damage without physical removal of bumper.
