Posted by in Legal

If you are afraid to talk to a cop because you feel that you may be getting into more trouble, here are some tips on what you can and can’t say. Avoid doing anything that may aggravate a police officer – It is best to be respectful and listen before you speak.

You can, however, speak your mind – Tell the police officer your side of the story in a civil manner that does not cause a scene. Look at being calm and explaining the incident in as much detail as possible. How far can you go – Consider the temperament of the police officer and the laws of your state.

State and local laws will affect traffic laws and regulations, which means that how a traffic ticket is treated will greatly depend on the jurisdiction. Most traffic tickets can be broken down into three categories: City ordinance violation – These types of offenses are based on photo enforcement systems or other devices that identify infractions.

Unpaid tickets will be reported to a credit agency that will ensure that payments come in on time. Civil infraction – These types of tickets will involve a court hearing, but a court appearance can be avoided if fines are paid on time.

Consider the following before hiring a business consultant

Sep 08, 17 Consider the following before hiring a business consultant

Posted by in Legal

Hiring a consultant to assist your firm with short-term projects is common in business since more organizations are cutting costs and looking at reducing their human resources. Here are a few things to consider before hiring a business consultant. The knowledge approach – If you have a straightforward job that doesn’t require much involvement from other staff members, hiring a consultant is a good idea. A consultant will help to resolve your problem and be able to solve it within a very short period, provided they are given access to all the information they need. The people approach – Consultants that follow the people approach are becoming more popular as they work with an organization’s staff and provide knowledge and learning that can be used in the future. However, this approach will take more time and therefore be costlier. Know the problem – Understand what the problem is and gather as much information as you can before finding a consultant. Using this approach will help a consultant understand the issues a company is facing and be able to provide a solution within a shorter time. Does the company need a consultant – Lyle Charles suggests that If the problem you have has been attempted by many teams within your firm and you are unable to reach a solution, a consultant’s expertise may be a good way to resolve an issue. However, if your staff have not assessed the problem, it is best to instruct them to look into the issue before you look for a consultant. Other sources of help – Look at speaking to other companies about their experiences on similar issues. Although this can be true for certain issues, some technical problems may require the help of a construction consultant....

What is premises liability law?

Aug 27, 17 What is premises liability law?

Posted by in Legal

Blog written by Barry K. Rothman. Premises liability law, holds landlords and tenants responsible when someone enters their property and as a result, is hurt. This law is based on negligence and can be different to personal injury situations. The most common injury is slip and fall cases, which are caused by wet floors, snow and ice, unmarked obstacles, and faulty stairs. Cases also arise due to vicious animals, open swimming pools, broken elevators, and unruly customers or guests. Plaintiffs will have to file a suit against the owners, landlords, business owners, residential tenants, maintenance companies, and or other parties that control the property. The laws for premises liability will characterize the injured based on the reason he/she entered the premises. Plaintiffs who entered without permission are considered “trespassers.” Social guests and others who entered for their purposes are labeled as “licensees.” Finally, those who entered to further the purpose of the landowner such as a business customer are considered “invitees.” The law will award each group different levels of protection from harm. Traditional laws state that the landowners have no legal responsibility to keep trespassers safe. However, if the owner knew that trespassers were present, and failed to warn them about dangers, they could be held liable. Regarding licensees, the landowner has to warn them of dangers that the licensees are unlikely to discover on their own. Invitees (customers) are given the most protection. In this case, the landowners must inspect the premises and make sure it is safe for these individuals. Blog written by Barry K. Rothman. Read Barry K.
