Beyond the physical injury

Studies show that the emotional pain and suffering and financial strain of an injury frequently results in post-traumatic stress. Thus, injuries in a personal injury case refer to more than just physical harm and can include psychological and emotional components.

Understanding the injury from a physical viewpoint and relating that injury to its effect on the client’s daily life is an important aspect of a case that a good personal injury attorney must take into consideration.

Psychological trauma may be associated with life-threatening or disfiguring physical injuries as a result of a serious injury or a traumatic event. Our attorneys have the skill and experience to prove that the defendant is liable and to establish negligence, so you can receive compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other expenses.

  • Arbitration Provisions in Contracts

    The majority of people sign many contracts during their lives, but how many actually read them? And how many of those people ever try to change the terms of a contract? It is important to read contracts before you sign, and even more important to know what it all means. Attempting to change terms in a contract can be in your best interest, particularly now that arbitration provisions are routinely included in them. This provision requires parties to the contract to arbitrate (bring the matter before an impartial person) rather than litigate (bring the matter into court) any disputes or claims that may arise out of the agreement. In other words, signing an agreement with an arbitration provision means that you are foregoing your right to a jury trial.

  • Age Discrimination In The Workplace

    The average age of the American worker is increasing, setting the stage for an uptick in age-based discrimination in the workplace.The Bureau of Labor and Statistics estimates that by 2024, the median age of workers will rise to 42.4. It also predicts that the labor force of those age 55 and older will grow at an annual of 1.8 percent, which is more than three times the rate of growth of the overall labor force.Currently, one in five workers in the U.S. is 55-years-old or older. A study by AARP found that 64% of workers have experienced age discrimination themselves, or seen it in their workplace. Age discrimination can take a variety of forms, from discriminatory comments to practices surrounding hiring and firing.

  • One Hundred Deadliest Days For Teen Drivers Starts Memorial Day

    Memorial Day is the start of what is known as the 100 deadliest days for teen drivers. According to the most recent data from the National Safety Council, nearly 1,000 people were killed in crashes involving teen drivers between Memorial Day and Labor Day in 2012. More than half of the people killed were teens themselves.The NSC cites several reasons for the spike in accidents during the summer months: teens drive more frequently for recreational purposes; they may stay out later at night when the risk of crash is higher; and they are more likely to be driving with friends. The National Safety Council says passengers increase the risk of a teen driver being involved in a fatal crash by at least 44%.

  • Where should a workers' compensation claim be filed?

    Where should a workers’ compensation claim be filed if an employee lives in one state, but works in another? According to an April decision from a New Jersey appellate court, a claim can be filed and heard in the state of your residence even if you worked exclusively in the state where you were injured.In that case, the employee was injured at his job in New York and filed a workers’ compensation claim in New York. He later filed another claim in New Jersey. Initially, the New Jersey Division of Worker’s Compensation dismissed the employee’s petition for lack of jurisdiction. But in April, the appellate court reversed that decision after finding that the employment contract was created in New Jersey because the employee accepted his job over the phone from his New Jersey residence.
