What are the statute of limitations on injury claims?

You slipped on city property and will be bringing a claim against the city.

You’ve been hit from behind by an automobile and you feel fine for a couple of weeks but then you’re starting to get pain in your neck.

No matter your story, if you’re injured and plan on filing a claim you should be aware of your limitations. Continue reading What are the statute of limitations on injury claims?

Obvious Check Before Buying a Condo

Condo living can be good for the environment, requires less maintenance, and can increase security/community. Smaller spaces and sharing heat reduces your carbon footprint (assuming you pay attention to that kind of thing). You don’t have to vacuum common area carpets, shovel snow, or cut grass. The garbage is taken away down your chute, and your condo fees cover most of your utilities. You also have the benefit of living in close proximity to others for added security.

Stop Metered Internet in Canada

No legal action yet, but you can bet political careers are about to end, and the CRTC, Canada’s telecommunications department, will lose in the latest attempt by the telecommunications oligopoly in Canada.

Because people are starting to rent less DVDs, watch less TV, and increasing their bandwidth use to watch online movies, TV, youtubes, the big companies want their billions in revenue through a different means. Continue reading Stop Metered Internet in Canada

Idaho Incentives for Early Graduation Relaxed

Seems as though the rules have changed if you’re a nerd in Idaho. The number of schools who can participate in a program that will permit students who graduate early access to scholarships. before there was a cap on the number of schools that could participate per district. Because the low number of participating schools lawmakers have eliminated that rule. So you can now, if you have smart students in your school, participate in a program that will permit advanced students a chance to get a chunk of change for their college years.

No word on how many schools have these types of studious teens….

Unseen Doesn’t Mean Un-hurt

Soft tissue damage is usually unseen. That means to people around you your injuries seem like phantom boo-boos, but in reality you’re in real pain. Family, friends, and other loved ones need to show empathy to those with soft tissue damage as these injuries do not come with broken bones or prolonged bruising.

You may slowly find yourself doing less and less around the house because your injuries are getting worse and worse. To those around you it may seem as if you’re physically fine on the outside and are just getting lazy! Remember, just because it can’ tbe seen doesn’t mean you aren’t hurt!

The Before and After: What Designation Were you Before law?

Law is a funny business. When you apply to go to law school you honestly get the whole kit and kaboodle. Any tool, clown, and wise ass can apply and succeed in graduating. Of course, this leaves a massive range of expertise when it comes to lawyers. Some have wimpy liberal arts degrees that are only revealed as the mysterious “BA”. Others are legitimate (well maybe not legit, but a bit more interesting than philosophy or English Lit). I’m talking about the difference between the economist, the finance major, or the health sciences grad–not wait, scratch the last one.

Why Just About Mary J?

When I’m browsing through the blog land, or some Q&A forums online, why are 50% of the questions about legalizing marijuana? First off, how can a stoner coherently figure out how to post on an online forum? Secondly, what’s with the volume? Have I missed the marijuana boat? And since when has this become one of the top legal issues to trend on the web?

I looked a bit closer into the phenomenon and noted some trends, take what you wish from the data. Continue reading Why Just About Mary J?

BP Lawyers Licking Chops

Oh what I wouldn’t do to be a BP lawyer right now. Conversely, what I wouldn’t do to be anybody taking them to court. If you pick any classic Oil Giant vs. Little Guy battle you’ll find a recognizable trend: these babies drag out for EVER. You can pretty much guarantee your mortgage payments for the next 15 years, maybe even 25. The only caveat to the BP disaster is that the spill pissed off people with TV. You can rape rural Ecuador for their oil, but if you do it in the place where TV cameras roll then you’re screwed. Continue reading BP Lawyers Licking Chops
