A Whiplash Injury Claim Is NO BIG DEAL… Or Is It

A Whiplash Injury Claim Is NO BIG DEAL… Or Is It?

by: Mumtaz Shah

Are you aware of how important your compensation for a whiplash injury can be? Too often, a whiplash injury claim is overlooked or is under-compensated. It is often considered minor, but is it really? After all, you’ve suffered an accident, been injured even if the injury is ‘just’ whiplash.
Do you realize what a whiplash injury is?
A whiplash typically causes injury to your neck. Do you think a neck injury is minor?
Plenty of accident claim solicitors will try to tell you a whiplash injury won’t bring much accident compensation, if any. Do you believe them? If you do, it’s because you don’t understand the long-term consequences of the injury. If you’ve been in an accident and suffered, you’d better start to understand how serious a neck injury can be. Overlook the importance of a whiplash accident claim, and you could be in for a very unhappy life.
15 Years Of Hell
Here’s a story that will get you thinking twice about the importance of a whiplash neck injury claim.
It was a simple matter. A car accident. She was a passenger in her husband’s car. Someone stopped suddenly in front of him, and he rear-ended them.
The accident was technically his fault, because he should have left more space between his car and the one in front. But the man’s wife was not at fault. She was just a passenger, an accident victim.
The driver of the car he rear-ended apparently didn’t have appropriate accident insurance, so he left the accident scene quickly, before the police arrived. The car wasn’t going very fast at impact. It was rush-hour traffic.
Even so, the car engine was damaged by the accident impact, so that was the end of the car. But no accident injuries to the passenger or her husband, the driver...

Protecting unmarried couples relationships

Protecting unmarried couples relationships

by: Jeffrey Broobin

A power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to dictate who you would like to make decisions on your behalf. While there are many useful purposes for a power of attorney, they are especially important to unmarried couples, which live together, when a partner becomes incapacitated and unable to make decisions.
In such situations, the law usually designates the incapacitated person’s next of kin as the decision maker. With a power of attorney, unmarried couples can give their partners the power to make such decisions.
Powers of attorney can be as general or specific as you decide. You can give your partner the power to make decisions on your behalf at any time or only when you become incapacitated. You can also dictate what types of decisions you are authorizing your agent to make. A health care power of attorney (also referred to as a durable power of attorney for health care, medical power of attorney, health care proxy and appointment of health care agent of surrogate) would authorize your partner (or other agent) to make decisions about your medical treatment and dictate who you would like to be able to visit you while receiving medical treatment.
By executing a power of attorney for finances (also referred to as a durable power of attorney for finances) you could dictate whom you want to make decisions about your legal and financial matters. You can be very specific about what actions you are authorizing your partner (or other agent) to make, including which accounts he or she has access to and the types of decisions he or she can make.

Health Insurance Coverage

Health Insurance Coverage

by: Mike Yeager

Health insurance is something that everyone needs today. The rising cost of visiting a health care provider or a hospital stay makes it imperative that everyone have some type of health care coverage. Government statistics estimate that over 40 million people in America are not covered by any type of health insurance on any given day. That’s an enormous number of people who really are taking a financial risk.
While most Americans are able to obtain some type of health insurance through their place of employment, many others, the underemployed, the self-employed and the unemployed simply don’t know where to find good, quality coverage at a fair price. The Census Bureau estimates that nearly 15% of the population has no coverage. The long term effects of this are hard to quantify because it means that young children do not see a health care provider unless they are seriously ill. Unfortunately this approach while appearing to save money can be devastating to the long term health of the child.
Health care providers and other experts all recommend that every one have some type of health insurance for the necessary time when they’ll need to visit their Doctor or hospital.
We’ve searched all over the web and have located a few quality companies that we feel are not only financially sound and secure, but which also offer competitive rates. You don’t need to even sit down and visit with an agent, all the information gathering and work can be done over the internet.
You’ll find the best life insurance for your needs that will comfortably fit into your budget. Solid life insurance will give you peace of mind and confidence.

Consumers – Fight Back With FTC’s Do Not Call Regi

Consumers – Fight Back With FTC’s Do Not Call Registry

by: James H. Dimmitt

The Federal Trade Commission has rolled out it’s National Do Not Call Registry and the registration site already has over 700,000 registrants. This is great news for consumers who have grown tired of annoying sales calls by pesky telemarketers.
Consumers can register online at www.donotcall.gov.
You can register up to three personal phone numbers at one time. This is a free service established by the FTC and your “do not call” registration is good for a 5-year period.
Additionally, a toll-free number is also available for those who want to register by phone. The toll-free number is 1-888-382-1222. You must call from the phone number you want to register when using the toll free registration service.
The toll free number is only accessible to those states west of the Mississippi River in the initial week of registration. The program will spread nationwide the following week.
Telemarketers will be required to “clean” their call lists by matching their list against the national “do not call” list every 90 days starting in September 2003.
Companies who call listed people will be subject to fines of up to $11,000 per violation. Enforcement will begin in October 2003. You will be able to file a “do not call violation” complaint online or by phone.
Over two dozen states already have their own “do-not-call” lists and most of these states plan to incorporate their lists into the national registry. If your state is one of them, you do not need to re-register for the national registry.
CAUTION: There have been reports of scam artists and identity thieves calling people to request or confirm personal information for this new registry...

Injury Compensation Claims

Injury Compensation Claims

by: John Eastwood

Accidents do happen, but if you feel you had a slip trip or fall that was due to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to claim compensation. Personal injuries because of slipping, tripping and falling are a fact of life, but sometimes they are the result of carelessness on the part of individuals or municipal councils who are liable to pay compensation for it.
Though most public areas in the U.K. conform to the highest safety standards, occasionally a poorly maintained road, pavement, car park or shopping area can become the cause for personal injury. One could trip on a warped or pitted road, pavement, walkway or car park. One could also slip on dangerously polished floors, fall down poorly constructed or maintained stairs or trip over worn floor coverings or obstructions.
In the case of slips and trips in public areas like roads, walkways and pavements, the local authorities responsible for their upkeep can be held liable if negligence is established. The authorities are expected to carry out frequent inspection and maintenance, especially in areas of high foot traffic. Shops and occupiers of other similar public places are duty-bound to keep the premises safe for their customers. They are required to have staff locating and removing items customers might have spilled or dropped on the floor in order to prevent injury to other visitors.
If you should sustain injuries after taking a fall or slipping in another person’s home, you are entitled to compensation if it was the result of the occupier or proprietor’s negligence. It is the occupier’s responsibility to keep the house safe by picking dropped objects like toys off the floor and wiping off spilt liquids so that no one is hurt...
