What to do after a slip and fall at a business

When you walk into a store or restaurant, you expect the premises to be safe. However, every year, thousands of people sustain injuries after falling, many times due to someone else's negligence. One study the National Floor Safety Institute reported on found that approximately 30 percent of all people over the age of 65 will slip and fall in a given year. 10 percent of these slip and fall incidents result in serious injuries. 

You may feel disoriented after falling inside a business. However, it is paramount you follow these steps in case your incident ends up in court. 

Driver facing 8 counts after causing death, injuries

If you're headed to work, school or another location, the last thing you expect is to have your life turned upside down. You're imagining what you'll do when you get there, not that you won't make it there at all.

Unfortunately, drunk drivers are on the roads and create a significant risk to those around them. Take, for example, a case out of New Jersey, where a driver's blood alcohol content (BAC) was almost three times higher than the limit.

How can you protect yourself as a landlord?

As a landlord, one of the things you're likely concerned about is making sure that your properties stay in good condition. You take security deposits, but if someone ruins the property, it'll take more than just a few hundred dollars to resolve the problem.

It's wise to take the steps you can to prevent legal issues ahead of time, so you can avoid going to court if at all possible. Here are a few things to do to protect yourself as a landlord.

Protect yourself by behaving properly in court

When you go to court on a criminal charge, there are some things you need to know about how to act. If you don't have a good understanding of what to do -- and what not to do -- you could hurt your case without even saying a word.

Your criminal defense attorney will help you learn more about how your actions can affect you when you attend court. Here are a few tips, however, to get you started.

Get compensated for the right damages after a personal injury

If you suffer from a personal injury, then you may be able to seek damages. Damages are not just for the exact amount that you spend on medical care or repairing your vehicle, for example. They actually include many kinds of losses including lost earning capacity, lost wages, medical expenses, mental anguish and other forms of damages.

Many people recover from personal injuries, even if it takes time. The goal of a personal injury lawsuit, settlement or trial needs to be to get you as much as you can as financial backing. That way, you'll have the financial support you need while you focus on your health and recovery.

What if you are bitten by a dog in New Jersey?

A dog can be your best friend. But what if you meet up with a dog who wants to protect their best friend and attacks you? Being attacked by a dog that results in a bite can be frightening. There are repercussions to the owner if you are ever bitten by a dog with the possibility of compensation for you.

Dog bites are not rare. It is estimated that there are 4.7 million incidents of dogs biting people every year in the United States. Out of those dog bite victims, 800,000 are treated with medical care. If you are ever bitten by a dog in New Jersey, there are some things you should know.

Get to know the law before evicting a tenant

If you have a tenant who has taken advantage of you or been unable to pay for rent, then it's time to consider eviction. Evictions are sometimes a necessity because tenants aren't always good about paying on time or treating your property with respect.

If you're in a position where you want your tenant to go, then you need to find out if you can evict them. You can typically choose not to continue the lease, evict due to damage on the property or evict because of breaking rules set out in the lease.

Your defense attorney: A protector and guide

Your criminal defense attorney has many jobs. While you know that your attorney needs to defend you, the reality is that your attorney does much more than that. Your attorney will teach you how to act in court, help you dress appropriately and even teach you the best ways to react to questions about your case.

To start with, defense attorneys need to understand your case very well. When you speak with your attorney, be clear about what happened. Don't be shy about giving all the details you can. Your attorney needs to know everything that happened to create the best defense. The truth is absolutely necessary, so don't hide anything.

Bee stings: Property owners may be liable

One kind of personal injury that doesn't often come up is a bee sting. When you get a single sting, it usually isn't a big deal unless you are allergic. However, there are times when people are attacked by swarms of bees as a result of the negligence of a property owner. It is in these cases that individuals may have a right to file a claim for compensation.

Here's an example. If you are mowing your lawn and notice that your neighbor's house has a bee's nest, you might let them know. If, after asking them to remove it, the bees still remain, you may have no option but to continue mowing near the hive.

Median home prices on the rise in these areas of New Jersey

There are times when the markets are good for buyers, and if that's what you want to hear, then this is a great time to look at a few different real-estate markets in New Jersey. The state is currently in a housing boom, which means that if you buy soon enough, you could see your property's value grow substantially in the future.

The median home price in New Jersey is $318,800, which is up around 8 percent over the last year. Prices aren't back to what they were before the recession, but that's good for buyers because it means there's room to grow.
