Personal Injury Attorney: Should I get one?

In most cases, people who are involved in an accident would have the idea that everything is going to be fine because their insurance company has their back, or the other person’s insurance will cover everything for them. In reality it does not go as smooth as most people would like to think it should be. Oftentimes, insurance companies would try to minimize, if not disqualify you from obtaining benefits. It may sound cruel yet it is true and it does occur to people, most especially the ones who are not aware of their rights and privileges. This is just one reason why it is important to have someone to assist you with your ordeal. What can a personal injury attorney help you with?

Do You Need Legal Representation for Nursing Home Abuse?

For some families, the decision to put an elder into nursing home care can be quite difficult. This is especially true when the senior or other family members are resistant to the decision, it is a decision that is never made lightly. Often, families come to this option as a last resort and must make difficult decisions about their elders’ care based on available options and resources. If your family has come to this decision, then you know how tough it was to place your mother, sister, father, brother, or other loved one into the hands of someone else for care. We know that you chose your loved one’s care with great precision, that’s why it’s so painful to deal with elderly abuse that you may have found is going on behind clothes doors with your loved one. The CDC states that elder abuse can include emotional or psychological harm, physical abuse, sexual abuse, or financial exploitation, and it done in an intentional manner that creates risk to the elderly person in question. Your loved one has every right to be treated with the respect, dignity, and care that they not only deserve but are also paying for. If you’ve recently found out that your loved one is at possible risk of abuse or have proof that they are in fact being abused, it is wise to seek legal counsel to find out about your rights and responsibilities. Before you move forward with a nursing home abuse lawsuit, you may want to consider all of the details of your case and available options. At the Law Office of George... read more

Top 3 Reasons Why You Need to Hire a Lawyer for Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury cases are essentially situations wherein you got injured because of another person’s negligence or carelessness like car accidents, dog bite, and elder abuse. If you believe that hiring a lawyer would be a waste of time and money for personal injury cases, especially when you think that the harm done was not serious, you need to reassess and consider the following: Minor injuries can get worse later – you must remember that an injury can become serious later especially if the doctor who treated you initially failed to make an accurate diagnosis. Note that once you already accepted a settlement offer, you have no choice but to face the problem alone since you have already given up all future claims related to your case. This unfortunate happening can be avoided if you consulted a lawyer at the onset since he will make sure that you would be fully protected. Damages are not limited to tangible ones – if your case reaches the court, your visible injuries (e.g. scrapes and bruises) would not be the only ones to be taken into account but even your “pain and suffering” as well. These kinds of damages are not included when you decide to settle the matter off-court. Insurance companies will protect their interest rather than yours – if you think that your insurance or the other party’s insurance would be enough to compensate you, keep in mind that insurance companies aim to pay as little as possible to make more profit. No matter what your insurance agent claim, take it with a grain of salt and hire a lawyer nonetheless.... read more

A Father’s Right: The Importance of Paternity Leave under the FMLA

The arrival of new little one in the home brings joy, excitement, and quite honestly, exhaustion. With all the emotional ups and downs a new baby can impose on a household, it’s no wonder parents need substantial time off to adjust and recuperate. California Family Rights Act (CFRA) states, “Male and female employees have the right to up to 12 weeks of leave to bond with a newborn baby, newly adopted or foster child.” It’s no surprise to either the community or employer when a mother takes leave to bond with her new child. However, with this important law in place, why don’t more fathers take bonding time with their new baby? A father’s role is different, and yet, equal to a mother’s role in their child’s life. It has been reported that the more involved a father is at the beginning stages of his infant’s life, the healthier the child will in fact be. Kyle Pruett, Clinical Professor of Child Psychiatry, declared in his article from the Zero to Three Journal, “Examining 2-month-old infants from middle income, two-parent families, Parke and Sawin (1975) found that the more fathers participated in bathing, feeding, diapering, and other routines of physical care, the more socially responsive the babies were. Furthermore, a year later these babies seemed more resilient in the face of stressful situations.” Fathers have a vital role to play in their young child’s life. Babies need to establish healthy relationships with not just one, but both parents right from the start. With the aid of the CFRA, fathers can take leave from work with the peace of mind their... read more
