The Insurance Formula Used For Claims

After being involved in an accident in which you were injured, you may have to deal with an insurance company to see how much compensation that you will get from them. Not everyone knows that there is a formula that these insurance companies use to determine how much compensation someone receives. This formula does not always cover the costs that a person may need. If you know about and understand the insurance formula, you may be in a better place to negotiate for more compensation and reach a settlement that will cover everything that you need. It is a good idea to have the help of an experienced attorney whilst going through negotiations. Attorneys have a better understanding of what tricks insurance companies use to try and reduce or deny a claim. So what is this formula?

Domestic Assault in Texas

No two families are the same and each has a very different family dynamic. Some family dynamics do not work as well as other and there is friction or abuse between family members. Domestic violence is defined as an act committed by one family member or member of a household against another member of that family or household that is intended to result in physical harm, injury, assault, sexual assault, or the mere threat of any of the above. Self defense usually does not fall under this category. In Texas, the state recognizes different levels of domestic violence including: domestic assault, aggravated domestic assault, and continuous violence against the family. Each fall under the above definition, but have a few variations.

SXSW Crash Shakes Texas

One festival that the close city of Austin is known for is South by Southwest (SXSW). During this festival, thousands of people flood the streets of downtown Austin to attend events that are centered around interactive, music and film. Festival goers usually get to enjoy free concerts, food and alcoholic beverages during this week of fun, but this year something unexpected happened. A drunk driver put a damper on the festival fun on early Thursday morning when he killed two and injured 23 individuals. This tragedy is still affecting the city of Austin as well as the state of Texas.

How Revoked Probation Can Affect You

Probation is often given as an alternative to jail time, which most people aim for after committing a crime. Spending time in jail is unideal and probation is the Court's way of allowing a person a second chance and a chance to prove that they are trying to better themselves. If this probation is revoked by the Court, you may be facing the original jail time that was being considered for your first crime. So what do you do if your probation is at risk of being revoked? If the Court or the State of Texas has filed a Motion to Revoke Probation, due to you not meeting the requirements of your probation, you need to contact an experienced attorney immediately. Probation revocation is taken very seriously in the Courts, and fighting this, unaware of the laws, without an attorney could land you with some serious jail time.

Slip and Fall Cases

If you have slipped or fell on someone else's property and have been unsuccessful in gaining compensation from them, it may be time for a lawsuit. However, when venturing into the lawsuit route, it is a good idea to receive legal counsel from an experienced attorney because, in Texas, the requirements for slip and fall cases are very specific and not everyone can handle a case like this on their own. These are very difficult cases to fight. This is due to the fact that if you slip and fall on someone else's property and injure yourself, they may not be at all liable for your injury. You must prove that the landowner acted negligently and said negligence caused your injury. This is no easy thing to prove. So what are some common, everyday conditions that can result in the possibility of a slip and fall case?
