Comparing Civil and Criminal Justice for Victims of Crime

Let’s compare and contrast the differences between Criminal and Civil Court, and how both play important roles for crime victims. Victims don’t have to choose to go through one or the other, the victims can do both. Both systems serve different purposes and functions, and so a victim has a better chance of being made whole by entering both, if possible.

How do I Prepare for Court?

You researched the forms, the law, and the procedure, and you filed a Petition, or were served with one. Now its time to prepare for the conference, hearing, and/or trial. In preparing your case, ask yourself 3 questions:

1) What do I want the judge to order?
2) Why should the judge give it to me; and
3) How am I going to prove it.

After your Work Injury, did your Boss Change?

You hurt yourself at work, but you keep your job. You can’t do what you did before so your boss gives you a modified job and you continue to work. But when you returned to work, things have changed. You’re treated differently by your boss and/or supervisor. You don’t feel trusted and you feel disrespected. What happened? Why the change? I see this in my workers compensation law practice all the time.

After work injuries, bosses seem to go from good guy Dr Jekyll into bad guy Mr. Hyde. The change usually comes in the nature of a bad job offer that you legally have to accept. You have to take a job that you completely don’t want to do. Perhaps it seems like a fake offer or setup. Perhaps the offer is insincere; it seems like a punishment because you got hurt; like a demeaning no-duty job. You might feel offended by any of this the strange behavior because you gave your heart and soul to this employer and all of a sudden it’s turning its back on you, playing a game.

How to Prevent Your Social Media Posts from Hurting you in Court

The internet, cell phones, and social media have collectively created a giant, online data base consisting of written journal entries, picture of social occasions, and even home videos which give details of our daily activities, nights out, trips, vacations, and outings; all this information is neatly organized by date, time, and place. These online journals give details of our work, family, recreation, vacations, daily routines, accomplishments, and emotions. The information is public, and even if its private, a good opposing lawyer can sometimes access it.

you can join in your spouse’s lawsuit with a loss of consortium claim

What can you do if your spouse is suing for serious injury? Answer: you can sue too! The law in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States- recognizes the sanctity and reality of marriage – when one of you are hurt, you both suffer. The claim is called a loss of consortium claim, that is, the loss of marital affections. This is all inclusive.

For example, it can be as little as a loss of home cooked meals, taking out the trash, or other household assistance. And it can be as deep, emotional, and the loss of sex. It includes everything. Whatever bad stuff is going down because of injury is fair game. The claim also includes medical bills from treating the injury because one spouse often pays all the bills, and carries the insurance.

What most People Don’t know about homeowner’s Insurance

Lawyers don’t like to sue individuals. They like to sue insurance companies because an insurance company has something called, “a deep pocket.” After you win a settlement or judgement, the insurance company immediately cuts a check; without insurance, most judgements would be uncollectable because individuals usually can’t pay. There’s a part of homeowner’s insurance called, “the liability provision” that follow owners away from the home. It covers not just the owner, but resident relatives. This opens up claims for accidents away from just streets and sidewalks.

Can I sue my employer if get injured at an unsafe worksite?

You can’t sue your employer for pain and suffering and all the other injuries because there’s an exclusivity provision of a
workers compensation laws which give immunity to employers. The reason why lawmakers put that protection in is so that everyone would get covered — all injured workers, not just the ones in unsafe conditions. But the employees waive their right to sue for pain and suffering.
