Sustaining an injury on the job could entitle you to claim workers’ compensation to cover your medical bills, pay your wages while you cannot work, and pay for any pain or suffering caused by the injury.

However, getting your claim settled is a complex process, and many people make some crucial errors along the way: Here are four examples: Not hiring an attorney Many people are reluctant to seek legal assistance after a workplace injury.

With the immediacy of voting rights relaxed, another major issue steps to the front.  Police reform has come to the attention of the country and world following the George Floyd killing and the numerous incidents of police abuse of power since then. This year New York enacted the Police Statistics and Transparency Act (STAT Act) in an attempt to make the actions of the police more transparent. [i]   Under the new law, courts are now required to compile and publish racial and other demographic data of all low-level offenses, including misdemeanors and violations.  This should allow outside groups to see evidence of the police possibly targeting minorities. ...

I previously wrote about the widespread problems of lead in our drinking water. [i]   A quick update, former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, his health director and other former officials have been told that they will be criminally charged for their actions in the Flint water crisis. [ii] I think most people assume that when something like Flint happens, no one gets in trouble and often that is the case.  Following the Flint crisis, many state and local officials lost their jobs, including the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality director.  Five people including the head of Michigan’s health department were charged with involuntary manslaughter. ...

In this present situation, the number of crimes is increasing every day. It has become quite challenging for a government to accommodate prisoners in the same state jail. For some security purposes, the government shifts prisoners to different jails. There is a possibility that an inmate may shift from his/her previous jail to a new jail without any information to their relatives. In that situation,   inmate search online   can help to locate the Inmate’s jail position. Necessary Steps to Locate an Inmate In ancient times, when no internet or mailing facility is available, people have to visit many prisons within a state to meet an inmate in jail. ...

Every year many students enter law schools. It’s not an easy task deciding what area to practice. Even if you can’t select one, it’s a good idea to narrow down the list of specialties that interest you the most. Below are three areas that you can practice. Use them as examples of what to look for when making this kind of decision. Bankruptcy Law In this field, you’ll work on behalf of debtors or creditors (individual or business). Most of the work will include analyzing financial documents and creating motion. Very little time is spent in an actual courtroom. Many lawyers and firms in this specialty mostly deal with tax debt and in turn ...

A 22-year-old recent college graduate, who had not previously held a professional job, claims she was raped by her supervisor, Nicholas Ferri s, at Bloomberg L.P., a corporation owned and managed by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. New York courts are referring to the employee as “Margaret Doe” in order to protect her identity due to the social stigma associated with litigating such claims. “Michael Bloomberg notoriously responded “that he would not call the rape allegation genuine unless there was an ‘unimpeachable third party witness,'” alleged Niall Macgiollabhui, Margaret’s attorney. Appellate Court Dismisses Margaret’s Claim against ...

The criminal justice system is there to help victims of crime and prosecute criminals for their wrongdoings. There are times, though, when the system fails to do its job, and the process is used not for its intended purpose.  You may find yourself accused of a crime you did not commit, like being charged for an armed robbery. There are things you can do to defend yourself against serious accusations. Here is how to fight an armed robbery charge. Do not say anything Just like what you see in the movies and TV shows, anything you say will be used against you in the case and the courtroom. Under any circumstance, should you not say anything to the police ...

Climate Change Blog 36 – Happy New Year! 2021 Facts on the Ground: Australia suffered catastrophic wildfires in 2020. In early December 2020 the wildfire season began anew, and the question is, ‘how bad will it be?’ The first major blaze blackened roughly half of Fraser Island, an idyllic getaway north of Brisbane, and led to evacuation orders. As temperatures continue to rise, the risk of record-breaking fires not only never goes away, it keeps increasing. Fraser Island saw fewer thunderstorms in November than usual, and those arid conditions have been exacerbated by heat. It was Australia’s hottest November on record. Forecasts also predict that ...

Almost a year ago I wrote about New York State’s progress on voting rights. [i]   At that time the New York legislature passed a number of initiatives to make voting easier and available to all.  Unfortunately at that time they did not pass a provision for automatic voter registration. Well, that situation has been rectified.  On December 22, 2020, Governor Cuomo signed into law the New York automatic voter registration act of 2020. [ii] [iii] The new law requires certain New York State agencies, such as the DMV, the Departments of Health and Labor and some other social services offices at the county and city level, amend their forms for application ...

Car accidents aren't something you want to experience. As if the accident isn't enough already, there's a whole process that comes next. You need to fill an insurance claim, determine whose fault is, and learn how to move on with your life. We get it, you want justice, and this process of getting both the law and the insurance company to give you what you deserve can be really overwhelming. So, you might call for support, as you shouldn't go through this all by yourself. You've got your family and friends by your side, but there's one thing missing: who's going to defend you in court? Here's what to do in case you've been injured due to a road accident.  ...

As a landlord, your property comes first and the rent you accrue should reflect the same. For you to continue enjoying the rent, the tenant must continue to pay his or her fees when it’s due.  To ensure this happens as planned, it is important to draft a lease agreement signed and registered as per the landlord and tenant regulations. In addition to the tenant agreement, here are some of the key considerations before leasing out your property for rent. Tenancy agreement As   this article   on NetLawman.co.uk explains, a lease is an agreement between a landlord and tenant to use the property for a specified period.

I hail from the frozen tundra of Minnesota, where tourists are invited to “come for the culture but stay because your car won’t start.” [1] Four months ago, however, I became a newly minted western New Yorker. (I’ll wait at least one winter before drawing weather comparisons.) The magnetic pull to Buffalo was strong, even during a pandemic. I came to direct the Civil Rights & Transparency Clinic , a real-client experiential program that teaches student attorneys litigation skills through representing public interest clients. It is based at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo School of Law . Many attorneys have never participated ...
