Contacting an attorney is vitally important if you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a result of an auto accident, whether as a driver, passenger or pedestrian. This can make the difference in Getting the Compensation You Deserve!

Following a car accident it is understandable for an individual to want to settle the matter quickly and move on as soon as possible. As a result, many people are tempted to try to take care of all issues--including legal issues--without getting help from an attorney. Before proceeding on your own, it is crucial to understand the pitfalls of trying to handle your case without legal representation.

You can be sure that those representing the negligent party--usually an insurance company--will be lawyers working to pay out as little as possible. Insurance companies and their attorneys often calculate the value of your claim based on how aggressive they feel the injured party will fight for full compensation for the harm caused. When you retain a lawyer to fight for you, you are essentially ensuring that you are not taken advantage of by the other side.

You should retain an attorney who has vast experience in handling car accident cases and one who is able to stand up to the insurance company at all costs. If the other side is not cooperating and your case requires a law suit being filed, the attorney must be prepared to take the case to court to ensure full and fair recovery. Knowing that you are willing to go as far as necessary to ensure justice by obtaining experienced legal counsel often means that the opposing side will deal more reasonably right from the start.

You need an attorney to fight for your rights and to show the insurance company that you are serious about your case. Attorney Jerrard M. Young will take your injury case on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not have to pay any money up front-- he is only compensated following successful recovery.

A slip and fall accident can occur in almost any location, from a wet floor in the grocery store to a dangerously uneven sidewalk. Not every situation gives rise to legal liability, but valid slip and fall claims are filed and settled every year. To be legally responsible for the injuries you suffered from slipping or tripping and falling on someone else's property, one of the following must be true:

  • The owner of the premises or an employee must have caused the spill, worn or torn spot, or other slippery or dangerous surface or item to be underfoot.
  • The owner of the premises or an employee must have known of the dangerous surface but done nothing about it.
  • The owner of the premises or an employee should have known of the dangerous surface because a "reasonable" person taking care of the property would have discovered and removed or repaired it.

  • The third situation is the most common, but is also less clear-cut than the first two because of those pesky words "should have known." Liability in these cases is often decided by common sense. Judges and juries determine whether the owner or occupier of property was careful by deciding if the steps the owner or occupier took to keep the property safe were reasonable.

    If someone has violated your civil rights by discriminating against you, it may be time to contact a civil rights attorney about your civil rights. Law firms specializing in civil rights know how to protect the rights of a person who is singled out at work or in public based on gender, age, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, for example..

    It's illegal to treat a person differently or badly because of some characteristic that's beyond the person's control. This is discrimination. The government protects several classes of people from discrimination by law, especially in the areas of employment and housing. Most states and even some municipalities have enacted their own statutes dealing with discrimination. Attorney Jerrard Young will advise you on whether you have a case.

    Complex litigation is a specialized docket or list of cases intended for complex civil cases. In complex litigation a single judge hears the case from beginning to end. To qualify as a complex litigation the litigation will have to involve multiple parties, large amounts of money, lengthy trial or complex legal issues.

    These cases involve numerous pre-trial motions raising difficult or novel legal issues or legal issues that are inextricably intertwined that will be time consuming to resolve;

    - Management of a large number of separately represented parties;
    - Coordination with related actions pending in one or more courts in other counties, states or countries, or in a federal court; Management of a large number of witnesses or a substantial amount of documentary evidence (including electronically stored information);
    - Substantial time required to complete the trial;
    - Management at trial of a large number of expert witnesses, attorneys or exhibits;
    - Substantial post-judgment judicial supervision; and large amounts of money.

    The police brutality or excessive force problem is a direct result of the anti-minority attitudes and practices and their related conflicts and tensions which permeate relations between the police and the African American community.

    Excessive force by a law enforcement officer is a violation of a your constitutional rights. The term excessive force is not precisely defined; however, the use of force greater than that which a reasonable and prudent law enforcement officer would use under the circumstances is generally considered to be excessive. In most cases, the minimum amount force required to achieve a safe and effective outcome during law enforcement procedures is recommended.

    Police brutality is a violation of the law. Cruel and unusual punishments by the state (police) are prohibited by the Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Fourteenth Amendment provides further protection to individuals, prohibiting the state from depriving any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.
