Personal Injury Claim – Win Without A Doubt!

Personal Injury Claim – Win Without A Doubt!

by: Mumtaz Shah

Everyone likes winning! If you win by an inch or a mile, winning is winning! Now winning at personal injury is a different ball game altogether. Do you want to claim compensation in direct result of an accident or injury? Okay, that’s fine go ahead, you deserve it!
Life Before A Personal Injury Claim
I bet it was awesome… You were having the time of your life. Winning at everything, football, cricket, racing, baseball and even at work. Met targets, been promoted and of the likes. You were at the top of Mount Everest, going crazy like Rocky at the top of the stadium.
You’ve heard about accident injury claims and injury compensation claims meaning all the same thing. But never had the pleasure of feeling it and you DON’T want to. You think it can’t be that bad except when you get involved in a car accident. Those I believe are painful!
Anyway reaching the pinnacle of success couldn’t get any better.
Then one day an accident injury occurs… to YOU!
Your life falls apart. You can’t win a single thing! Not even a date. You become a goof in the eyes of other people. You use to go out every Friday night. But now thanks to the accident injury, your bed is the only Friday night entertainment… well for the time being.
Life During An Injury Or Injury Claim
You feel like crap. PERIOD!
You were the first person everyone called when there was something going on everyday. You were like an operator, call after call after call. You had to specifically buy a phone that had a battery life for enough talk time in a whole day.
Now you don’t even charge it for days and still your battery’s full!
The Picture
There’s nothing much you can do, beside catch up on films you kept thinking you’d get round to one day...

Is Reinstating The Draft Such a Bad Idea?

Is Reinstating The Draft Such a Bad Idea?

by: Jean Fritz

In his bid for the presidency, John Kerry pronounced a “secret plan” to reinstate selective service. The fact that New York Democrat and fellow leftist Charles Rangel had proposed this plan wasn’t mentioned, so Kerry’s allegation created hysteria within the blue states. But there are several ways in which reinstating the draft could benefit our country.
FREEDOM IS EARNED
Too many people in the United States believe that the freedoms granted them under the Constitution are an entitlement program provided by the government. A general paucity of historical education, combined with a public education agenda derogatory to the Founding Fathers as well as God, contribute to this attitude. The fact is, the Founding Fathers understood that codifying our freedoms within a constitution was only part of the picture, but our freedoms are ultimately earned and protected through military preparedness and the judicious use of force, generation after generation. The reinstatement of selective service creates the opportunity for every citizen to participate in the protection of the freedoms they hold dear, and having thus participated, would contribute to a greater appreciation of and gratitude for those freedoms.
ECONOMIC BENEFITS
One reason that war has traditionally created a phenomenal decline in the unemployment rate is that during a war, a large section of the workforce is taken out of the labor market. By reinstating the draft, unemployed young people would in fact become employed, and would no longer be counted among the jobless.
Within that population, there are many with limited to no job experience or skill development...

What to Know Before Signing a Home Improvement Con

What to Know Before Signing a Home Improvement Contract

by: Susan Chana Lask, Esq.

It is important to be a very careful consumer when it comes to home improvement contractors. For instance, I had a case where my client, an elderly and blind woman, signed a contract and paid $30,000.00 to a home improvement company that disappeared with all of her money! Unfortunately, the company was a scam operation, my client lost her life’s savings and it will take some time in court before my client may ever see her money again however, her mistake will be a lesson to all of you because this article explains how to protect yourself from home improvement fraud.
Before signing any contract with a home improvement company, first ask that company for its license number and check it out with your State or County Consumer Affairs’ Business License Division. Find the License Division on the web or call information and get their number. You want to find out (1) the name and address of the company associated with the license number given to you, (2) if the company is currently licensed and the license expiration date and (3) whether any complaints have been made against that company. The answers to those questions will help you determine if you want to proceed with signing a contract. Make sure both the contractor and the company he works for are licensed to work in your State.
If your going to sign the contract then make sure certain things are included pursuant to your understanding and as required by your State’s Home Improvement Business Law. The contracting company’s name, address and phone number should be printed on the contract...

TV Signal Theft – Robbing Canadians

TV Signal Theft – Robbing Canadians

by: News Canada

(NC)—According to some recent ads, there’s no such thing as ‘free’ cable or satellite TV.
The bottom line message: television signal theft is just that, theft.
It’s all part of a recent campaign program by Canada’s broadcasting industry to try and educate the Canadian public to the serious problem of signal theft.
The reason is simple: Hundreds of thousands of Canadian households are estimated to be illegally accessing television services, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars being siphoned out of the Canadian broadcasting system each year.
That translates into lost income and revenue for Canadian actors, writers, directors, producers, technicians, distributors, broadcasters, advertisers and many others employed in the production and airing of Canadian television programming.
It means, simply, less money in the system, fewer productions production, less investment and fewer jobs. Those millions could be going to Canadian companies, paying for Canadian jobs, producing quality Canadian programming and helping drive Canada’s economy.
The most direct result of signal theft is seen in its impact on the Canadian Television Fund. Every time revenue drops for Canada’s broadcasting industry so does the 5 per cent of revenues the industry contributes to support production of Canadian programming through the Canadian Television Fund. It amounts to $4 to $7.5 million lost annually. That’s $4 million to $7.5 million fewer dollars available to support the production of Canadian drama, children’s programming, documentaries and variety and performing arts programming.
The loss of funding is critical...

Personal Injuries In Common Carrier Accidents

Personal Injuries In Common Carrier Accidents

by: Jinky C. Mesias

There are laws governing the operations of common carriers and these laws differ from state to state. However, it’s the Federal Government that regulates all the interstate common carrier laws while the individual states take care of the intrastate regulations.
In cases of common carrier accidents the sustained injuries of the passengers will determine the degree of liability to be paid by the carrier. In addition, the court will also examine whether the common carrier has make use of the required equipment as well as applied a reasonable degree of skill in order to prevent accidents from happening. The law also requires that a common carrier be strictly required to employ the highest degree of care as well as make use of safety measures in order to make sure that its passengers arrived at their destination unharmed.
There some state law that stipulates that a common carrier does not have an absolute responsibility of ensuring its passenger’s safety however there should be utmost care when transporting passengers to refrain from accidents. And with this as premise the common carrier is therefore liable for any injuries sustained by its passengers from accidents that could have been avoided if only the carrier was careful. The carrier is expected by law to act like a cautious person in its operation of the transportation services.
Likewise, depending again on the state law covering the area where the accident happens if ever a personal injury arises as a result of the carrier’s noncompliance to the safety laws only then will the carrier be held totally liable for the personal injuries suffered by its passengers...
