Bill Released to End Forced Arbitration in U.S. Workplaces

Published on Nov 7, 2018 at 2:44 pm in Law and Information.

On October 30, 2018, in Washington D.C., the Restoring Justice for Workers Act was introduced to overrule the 2018 Supreme Court decision in Epic Systems v. Lewis.

In May 2018, Epic Systems v. Lewis allowed employers to use forced arbitration clauses to prevent workers from accessing their legal rights. These clauses are typically buried in fine print. Employers could collectively force their employees to waive their rights to pursue work-related claims.

Arbitration is an alternative to filing a lawsuit that is designed to streamline legal issues in a cost-conscious manner. In almost any arbitration, the complaining party will send the opposing party a notice of their intent to arbitrate a dispute. There is generally a period for response, following by a selection of arbitrators, and the actual hearing.

Ask an Attorney: Is It Possible to Sue a City/County?

Published on Jun 20, 2018 at 1:08 pm in Law and Information.

Many people have a general idea of what to do when they’ve been injured in an accident or due to negligence—file a claim against the responsible party. For example, in a car accident the person would file a claim against the driver because they were going over the speed limit. But there may be some confusion of what your legal options are after you’ve been injured because of your city’s or county’s negligence.

You could have gotten in a car accident because a cop didn’t signal a turn or ran a red light, or you could have slipped inside a government building that didn’t indicate the floor was wet. In these cases, you may have grounds to prepare for a lawsuit, but there are certain steps you need to take first.

Ask an Attorney: Do I Need a Third-Party Witness?

Published on Jun 13, 2018 at 12:58 pm in Law and Information.

With any personal injury case, it’s the job of you and your attorney to prove to the judge and jury that the accident caused your injuries. A third-party witness may help you prove your case. Knowing whether or not you need a third-party witness can be confusing and frustrating. Our experienced personal injury lawyers are here to provide you with the information you need to make the decision that’s right for you.

What are the benefits of a third-party witness?

A third-party witness will be a person you do not know. This person would have been present when your accident occurred and would have watched the event unfold. Any additional information they provide, in conjunction with yours, has the potential to help your case. The sooner they present what they saw, the more reliable and detailed the description will be.
