Text Sender Included in Injury Liability

If there is one thing as common as the use of cell phones, it’s concerns about the safety of cell phones. We worry about the safety of our information on cell phones -- as they may get “smarter”, so do their hackers. Scientists even disagree about their effect on our health – maybe they cause cancer, maybe they don’t. But one thing we know for sure: cell phone use does and has led to an increase in traffic accidents and fatalities. This is why more and more states have enacted laws regarding cell use while operating a vehicle. Today, most are aware not only of the physical risks, but that we risk tickets, fines, and even jail time. There is little doubt that such a driver can also be held liable for any damages and injuries they cause. But in a recent surprising lawsuit, the question was raised, “Can the person on the other end of the line be held equally liable?”

Questions that Reveal Best Workers Compensation Attorneys, Part II

For an injured worker seeking to win their workers’ compensation claim, having an attorney is often the best tool at their disposal. However, it’s not just important to have an attorney, but to have the best attorney most suited to your needs. Finding such an attorney requires asking important questions of any you are considering hiring. Previously, in part one of this article, we discussed some basic questions involving background and experience. In this section, we will explore both practical and philosophical concerns you should discuss when interviewing an attorney. Remember: researching and screening all potential legal representatives will better ensure the success of your case.

Questions that Reveal Best Workers Compensation Attorneys, Part I

If you’ve been injured at work, you have probably learned the hard way that receiving the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve will be difficult. As a result, you’ve probably realized fairly quickly that you need the assistance of an attorney. Having legal representation greatly increases your chances of winning your claim for benefits. But knowing you need an attorney is just the first step. The second, and most important step, is choosing the attorney most qualified to represent you. Just because a lawyer is willing to take your case does not mean he or she is the best fit for your needs. Therefore, it’s vital when considering an attorney to ask some important questions.

Communication Crucial for Workers Compensation Success

If you stop to think of the many ways we have to communicate with others, it can be staggering to realize how much this ability has grown over just a few decades. Not so long ago, tiny, pocket-size communication devices were literally a thing of science fiction. Today, a person who doesn’t have a cell phone is considered unusual. Those who once had to wait days or weeks to receive news of loved ones, now just log on to a social media site or blog. Why wait in line to talk to a representative at your bank when you can chat with them online instantly from your couch? And yet, it almost feels like the more ways we have to connect, the less communicating we actually do. Or perhaps it’s simply that with so many ways to easily reach out to others, someone’s failure to do so becomes even more apparent and frustrating.
