Are you aware of how important your compensation for a whiplash injury can be? Too often, a whiplash injury claim is overlooked or is under-compensated. It is often considered minor, but is it really? After all, you’ve suffered an accident, been injured even if the injury is ‘just’ whiplash.
Do you realize what a whiplash injury is?
A whiplash typically causes injury to your neck. Do you think a neck injury is minor?
Plenty of accident claim solicitors will try to tell you a whiplash injury won’t bring much accident compensation, if any. Do you believe them? If you do, it’s because you don’t understand the long-term consequences of the injury...

Protecting unmarried couples relationships

by: Jeffrey Broobin

A power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to dictate who you would like to make decisions on your behalf. While there are many useful purposes for a power of attorney, they are especially important to unmarried couples, which live together, when a partner becomes incapacitated and unable to make decisions.
In such situations, the law usually designates the incapacitated person’s next of kin as the decision maker. With a power of attorney, unmarried couples can give their partners the power to make such decisions.

Injury Compensation Claims

Injury Compensation Claims

by: John Eastwood

Accidents do happen, but if you feel you had a slip trip or fall that was due to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to claim compensation. Personal injuries because of slipping, tripping and falling are a fact of life, but sometimes they are the result of carelessness on the part of individuals or municipal councils who are liable to pay compensation for it.
Though most public areas in the U.K. conform to the highest safety standards, occasionally a poorly maintained road, pavement, car park or shopping area can become the cause for personal injury. One could trip on a warped or pitted road, pavement, walkway or car park...
