Personal Injury Lawyers and Representatives

Most people know that a visit to a hospital is generally going to cost you money, but what if the reason you need to visit a hospital is not your fault, yet you end up with a big medical bill which you have to pay?

None of us would ever wish to experience an accident or injury, but many accidents and injuries occur because of someone elses neglect. There are many scenarios that could be mentioned such as slipping on water, accidents due to lack of proper care and attention on equipment and apparatus or even car and lorry accidents, but what rights do you have if such an occurrence happened?

Most people are not aware of the legal rights they have when an accident or injury occurs, it could be something simple happened which caused an injury although there was no intention for an accident to occur. In these cases, many people would not look into what rights they have or talk to a lawyer to discover whether or not they have grounds to make a claim.

If you incur medical bills due to an injury which was not your fault you could discover that you are able to claim payment for those bills. Many companies have insurance for that very reason so that even though no one intentionally anticipated an accident would occur, people do realise that accidents do happen.

There are many cases in the work place alone where accidents happen. Some accidents or injuries are automatically accepted as a basis for claim such as losing a limb through machinery, but what about something as simple as slipping on water that was not spotted on a floor?

Even a slip could mean many years of back injury and if you imagine how much the cost would be in medical bills caused by a simple spillage which was not cleaned up causing someone to slip, it could prove to be very expensive not only financially, but also the pain and uncomfortable injury which re-occurs every now and again which needs further treatment.

There are many personal injury lawyers and attorneys who are professionally equipped to deal with such matters. On many occasions a free consultation can be booked to find out if an accident or injury has enough ground to warrant a claim.

By talking to a lawyer representative you can soon discover whether or not you can make a claim and as well as this, considering the expertise of a personal injury lawyer, you can have the security and peace of mind in knowing that you are not stuck with large medical bills to pay which could add to the stress of the injury itself.

So, considering there are so many personal injury lawyers around, how do you know which one would effectively represent you?

In some cases, you may already have friends and relatives who have experienced an accident or injury where they have made a claim, in this instance, you can ask your friends and relatives who they chose and how well they were represented.

Other indications of an efficient personal injury lawyers would be to look at their own qualifications. This is a trusted indicator to discover how successful a company they are, as these qualifications are something that is earned through reputation rather then request.

Attorneys only receive membership of trial attorney organisations by invitation, and since there is a reputation to withstand, the invitation would only be offered to a firm that has worked in such a way that is honourable to receive membership.

So, if you experience an accident or injury that was not your fault, look around for credible personal injury lawyers who can represent you so that you can make an effective claim when your case is presented.

Legal Issues of Electronic Messaging

Electronic mediums lend themselves to informality. When people forget that electronic messages are actual records of communication that can be used in court, this can lead to serious legal trouble. Whether it’s an email or a Facebook comment, electronic messages can be used in legal disputes in the same way that paper records have been used in court for decades. >

Electronic Messaging at the Office
It’s never a good idea to mix personal uses with company email systems or electronic message boards. Tracking whether an employee is using email for personal use instead of working is harder than, say, tracking whether he’s using the company phone for personal use. But using company electronic messaging systems for informal purposes can make employees careless. Gossiping via email can lead to libel and harassment issues that can escalate to serious legal disputes.

Employer Liability
It’s important for employers to put in place a solid electronic messaging policy. Outlining the proper uses of company electronic messaging systems and drawing a clear line between work and personal uses will save companies a lot of trouble in the future. It’s important for both employees and employers to remember that just because you erase a sent email, it does not mean that that email cannot be retrieved. Any legal liability that can result from a written paper document can also result from an electronic message. Furthermore, third parties can seek legal action against an employer as a result of the electronic messaging activity of the company’s employees. These activities may include libeling a rival company or violating spam laws. Electronic messages can also be used as evidence in sexual harassment suits and cases involving workplace slander and discrimination.

Copyright Law
In terms of copyright issues that can arise from improper use of electronic messages, it’s key to remember that just because you have a published document saved on your computer as a PDF file, it doesn’t mean that you own it. If you so much as forward a copy written document to a friend or co-worker, it can be a violation of copyright law. It’s important to get legal discovery help to find out whether you need special permission from the publisher before you copy or share any piece of intellectual property.

Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Belize

Executive Summary We advise our clients who have asset protection issues to use a Belize Trust. The assets of a Belize Trust are immune from the decisions of a foreign court. This includes, bankruptcy courts, family courts, civil judgements and fraudulent conveyance allegations. Anything the foreign (Non Belize) court does is irrelevant when it comes to Belize Trust Assets contained in Belize. The catch all that lawyers like to use is the fraudulent conveyance allegation. They sometimes get the home country court to make a ruling that there was a fraudulent conveyance. Any order, decision, ruling, etc. from a foreign court is a big zero when it comes to the Belize Trust in that it has no legal value concerning Belize Trust assets. When one opens a bank account in Belize using a Belize Trust the banks tend to force issues regarding trust paper work to weaken the trust. So we do not have the Belize Trust open the bank account to preserve the privacy and asset protection value of the trust. What we do is use a Belize Corporation or other corporation from another country to open the bank account. The shares of the corporation are then titled to the Belize Trust and this is documented. This makes the corporation and corporate bank account property of the Belize Trust and thus immune from the decisions of a foreign court. Any such judgments from a foreign court cannot be domesticated or enforced in Belize against Belize Trust Assets. This is the only Trust that has this provision. No other trusts have a statutory exemption against fraudulent conveyance allegations. We will review some conditions for collecting a foreign judgement if the assets are not owned by a Belize Trust, just a regular corporation. If the assets are owned by a Belize Trust they are safe so there is nothing further to talk about.
Belize Corporation Bank Accounts One needs to remember that a personal judgment is not a judgment against a corporation. These offshore corporations legally in the eyes of the law have their own separate liabilities and assets. They are separate and distinct judicial persons. Just because you own the stock, it does not mean your debts transfer to the corporation. The ownership of these anonymous bearer share corporations is not recorded in any public registry or database. It is not easy for a creditor or financial enemy to submit evidence to the court to establish ownership. Even if ownership was established there are a number of other obstacles facing your financial enemies.
Foreign Judgment Reciprocity Belize will only recognize the judgments of a country that recognizes their judgments in their own courts on an equal basis with the way Belize treats their judgments. They tend to favor British Colonies in this regard. Other conditions that must be met to enforce a judgment in Belize follow:
Judgment has to be no older than six years.
Judgment must be final. Time for appeals has expired.
Judgment needs to be from a Superior Court of the country. Municipal court judgments may be difficult or impossible to enforce.
The court had correct jurisdiction over the matter.
The matter was not previously and correctly decided in another court.
The debtor was duly served according to the laws of that country and had ample time to respond.
If the plaintiff and defendant had an agreement to settle disputes in a matter differently than using the court that issued judgment, then the judgment may be not admissible in Belize. Thus the two parties may have agreed that proper venue would be country B, yet the plaintiff sued in country A. The agreement may have called for arbitration yet the plaintiff just sued. This sort of thing could cause the denial of the judgment.
If the judgment is for a fine, penalties or taxes it might be disallowed.
Summary It is most difficult to litigate against an offshore corporation where the underlying debt is against a person or another corporation. If you use a Belize Trust you become safe from the decisions of any foreign court including fraudulent conveyance as long as the assets are contained in Belize and thus under Belize law. In any event the conditions required for a judgment to be enforceable in Belize can be onerous and expensive from the perspective of a judgment creditor. Lawyers in Belize and the country of the judgment would be needed and double legal billing gets costly right away. If the debtor realizes there is a pending action he will remove the assets from Belize right away which thwarts the efforts of the creditor and the money he has spent is wasted. This is something not seen very often.

Personal Injury – Injuries Abroad

If you are involved in an accident abroad you may be able to claim something back for the injuries caused. If you are claiming for a personal injury compensation claim, the accident that occurs abroad must not have been your fault. Therefore it is important that a expert solicitor is hired to ensure that all the evidence is brought together to prove that you were not at fault, after this you will be able to claim for compensation.

If you are working abroad and an accident has occurred whilst in the course of business, your employer would be liable and it will be possible for you to claim a personal injury compensation claim. You should hire a UK based solicitor based, so long as you are employed by a company that is also based in the UK at the time of the accident, or your employer’s registered office or place of business is located in the United Kingdom. This would mean that your claim would be treated as if you were claiming for damages had the accident occurred at work. If your situation is that you are working for an employer who is foreign or a foreign organisation, it will be vital to seek specialist legal advice in order to understand the best possible options available to you for pursuing compensation.

If the accident occurs whilst you are on holiday abroad, it would be best to hire a personal injury solicitor from the UK. They will be able to claim against the holiday company if the holiday was booked as a package deal through travel agents in the UK. Therefore the accident would need to be the fault of the travel agent or their representatives, such as hotel staff.

In a situation where the accident has occurred while you have been doing a sporting activity that was organised by independent operators in the holiday resort you are staying in, then there will probably be no liability under the Package Tour regulations. Dangerous or hazardous activities such as paragliding, waterskiing, snorkelling, bungee jumping, skydiving, underwater diving or banana boat rides are less likely to be covered under the Package Tour regulations, as they will not be part of the holiday package deal that you would have bought and therefore you cannot claim for compensation through your travel agent of their representatives. However, you can try and sue the companies in that country for the accident, but this can be much more difficult and expensive.

China’s Legal Environment For Foreign-owned Enterprises– On The Perspective Of Foreign-owned Enterp

As we know, legal environment plays an important role for investment environment, and is also a necessary factor of attracting potential foreign investors. In this case, it has become an essential indicator for improving investment environment in China. Since reform and opening up of China, a series of foreign investment law was published during 1980s to build a legal system of foreign investments. “Law of the people’s republic of China on foreign-owned enterprise”1 and “the law of foreign-owned enterprise implementation regulations”2are parts of them. As a mount of foreign-owned company established in China in last century and China joined in WTO in 2001,”Law of the people’s republic of China on foreign-owned enterprise”and its implementation regulations have been amended in 2000 and 2001 respectively to adapt to the new changes in economic circumstances. Thus a free and open legal environment for foreign enterprises has been improved initially. For example: the enterprise’s obligations of exporting3 and reporting the production plan4 were canceled, which was stipulated in the old foreign-owned enterprise law. Moreover article of “the priority to buying Chinese raw materials and fuel under the same conditions5” was removed either, in order to esteem business autonomy; articles contrary to the provisions of the stipulation of WTO were deleted as well, including “balancing own foreign exchange”6, “requirement for local materials” , “requirements for exporting implementation” etc.

Though the new foreign-owned enterprises law considered more about the new economic situation, there are still some incomplete aspects which restrict the foreign-owned enterprises to go further in China market. Meanwhile, several conflicts are arising between new “company law”, which was published in 2006, and foreign-owned enterprise law. Those problems all affect the development of foreign-owned enterprises in China. From this point of view, this article will analyze the drawbacks of foreign-owned enterprise law and the effect of them on China’s legal environment:

1) Implementing issues of foreign-owned enterprise law.
Firstly, the amendments for “foreign- owned enterprise law” and their implementing regulations in respect of procedure matters were not enough; therefore, the fact that to set up a foreign-owned company would experience eventually a very complex, long and inefficient process, has not been changed fundamentally. Under the current regulations, the basic formation process includes the following steps: (1) Submit the application to the government of county level or above the county level where the foreign-owned enterprise will be established, and deliver relevant documents. (2) Submit the application through the above government to the approval authority for approving the establishment. (3) Registration in the industrial and commercial bureau. (4) And other related registrations. The completed process not only links many departments, but also requests for submitting a variety of written materials. The whole process usually makes potential foreign investors too confused to continue the investment. Finally, the enthusiasm of foreign investors is weakened badly. Fortunately, all levels of government have stood on the front line of attracting investment, and taken various measures to improve the investment environment to promote investment practically. At the same time county, district, development areas have been authorized to approve the project directly through various forms. Above all, it is absolutely significant and possible to simplify the procedures of foreign-owned enterprise establishment.

Secondly, the problem of long establishing period is also worth consideration. Foreign-funded enterprises will spend about six months on registration and approval procedures under current regulations. But in practice, a number of areas’ governments have reduced processing time to provide conveniences for foreign investors. For instance: Henan province commits that approval of foreign investment will be finished in five working days. In addition, the government of Shenzhen province also commits that the application, approval and registration in the industrial and commercial bureau of encouraged project7 will be finished within 12 working days. Therefore, from my point of view, establishing period should be shorted in order to enhance the enthusiasm of foreign investment.

2) Conflicts between foreign-owned enterprise law and new company Law Foreign-owned enterprise law, which is an important part of “Foreign Investment Law8” , has been outside the company law system alone for several decades, and formed a set of enterprise system and legal rules different from company law. One part of those rules is about the unique system and stipulations, which are related to the foreign economic relationship; the other part is about the general rules and system of corporation limited. In response to this conflict, company law provides that the limited corporation which is funded by foreign investor adapts company law; but also provides, at the same time, that if there are “other regulations” in the foreign-owned enterprise law, adapt its regulations. The problem is what the “other regulations” point. It is reasonable, if they refer to the unique system and rules of foreign-owned enterprise law; if, however, they include every aspect of present foreign-owned enterprise law, the situation of undermining the legal unification will emerge. Therefore how to deal with the situation? A legal pattern of the foreign-owned enterprise law ruling its unique system and the regular rules of a corporation adapting company law should be established. By doing so, these two laws would coordinate with each other smoothly. The confusions of foreign investors can be reduced to a great extent during the daily business contacts.

The authority has paid attention to above problems and recognized the negative effect of these drawbacks. Some officials of Commerce Ministry said that amendments of foreign-owned enterprise law are in the pipeline. I do hope these problems will be resolved in the amendments. A better and healthier legal environment for foreign-funded enterprises will be provided as a result.

——————————————————————————–

1It will be simplified as foreign-owned enterprise law in the following text.
2It will be simplified as the implementation regulations in the following text.
3Refer to Article 3 of the old implementation regulations: “the annual output value of export products accounts for more than 50% of the annual output value of all products”.
4The foreign-owned enterprise should submit its product plan to relevant authority and enforce the product plan as an economic administrative contract.
5Refer to Article 15 of the old foreign-owned enterprise law: “within the scope of the operations approved, enterprises with foreign capital may purchase, either in China or from the world market, raw and
semi – produced materials, fuels and other materials they need. When these materials are available from both sources on similar terms, first priority should be given to purchases in China”.
6Refer to Article 3 of the old implementation regulations: “the annual output value of exported products accounts for more than 50% of the annual output value of all products, thereby realizing the balance between revenues and expenditures in foreign exchange or with a surplus”.
7Refer to the implementation regulations Article 3: A foreign-funded enterprise to be established must benefit the development of China’s national economy and be capable of gaining remarkable economic results. The state encourages foreign-funded enterprises to use advanced technology and equipment, engage in the development of new products, realize the upgrading of products and the replacement of old products with new ones, economize energy and raw materials, and it is also encouraged to establish foreign-funded enterprises which are export oriented.
8Chinese Foreign Investment Law concludes “Law of the peoples republic of China on Chinese-foreign equity joint ventures”,”Law of the peoples republic of China on Chinese-foreign contractual joint ventures”,”Law of the peoples republic of China on foreign-owned enterprises”, and their implementation regulations.

Easy-To-Get-To:

If they respond promptly then, accessibility is assured. These cases can take solid turns at any minute, about which the lawyers should be notified right away to lead the case positively; this reason defines this factor as the foremost and primary characteristic.

How Prenuptial Attorneys Can Give You And Your Fiance Peace Of Mind

As the busy summer wedding season approaches, its a good time to discuss with your fianc the many benefits of a prenuptial agreement. If you decide a prenup is right for you, hiring the right lawyer has many benefits. Prenuptial attorneys can give you and your fianc peace of mind. An experienced prenup attorney can draft durable prenuptial agreements so that you and your spouse can focus on the more important things in life.
Here are some of the benefits of engaging prenuptial attorneys:

An experienced prenup attorney will be familiar with the nuances of prenuptial agreement law. State law, including the Uniform Premarital Agreement Act (UPAA), is quite intricate, and a prenup may be rendered unenforceable unless such laws are carefully followed. For instance, in California a couple generally must hold their prenup seven days prior to its execution (signing) or courts will consider the agreement void. Also, various state laws mandate that if certain provisions are included in a prenup, both parties must be represented by their own attorney. The right attorney can walk you and you spouse step-by-step through the entire prenup process.

Prenuptial attorneys can provide you with an up-front price quote, alleviating the stress of unknown costs. However, its important to understand that some attorneys charge excessive hourly billing, fees and costs. Also, some services like LegalZoom, may charge various fees for the inclusion of certain provisions (such as waiving alimony). Speaking with the right prenup attorney and discussing costs up-front can alleviate these problems and leave you with peace of mind.

Many prenuptial attorneys carry insurance. A properly insured lawyer (or law firm) provides protection for your prenup and gives you peace of mind.

Attorneys can provide you and your fianc with creative solutions to meet your unique needs. For example, some couples find it beneficial to include a sunset clause in their prenup which automatically terminates the prenup on a certain date (such as after five years of marriage). Another creative solution is offering each spouse a right-of-first-refusal, so one spouse could buy the others interest in a residence and therefore not force a sale at an inopportune time (i.e., selling the primary residence in a down market). Furthermore, an experienced prenup attorney can draft your agreement creatively to mesh the goals of both you and your fianc.

In order for a prenuptial agreement to be enforceable, the courts must deem the agreement fair and reasonable. Experienced attorneys can help draft provisions and clauses which are durable and viewed as fair and reasonable by the courts. Without an attorney-drafted prenup, you significantly increase the risk of your agreement being deemed unenforceable which can result in tens of thousands of dollars in future legal fees.

To give you and your fianc peace of mind, engage an experienced prenuptial attorney to draft and negotiate your agreement.
