Avoiding Wrongful Death

Wrongful death of a loved one is one of the most difficult things a person can experience in their lives. If you know that somebody you loved and cared about died because of somebody else’s error you have every right to feel angry, out of control, and hopeless. In this article, I am going to to offer you some practical tips that can reduce the chances that somebody you love might fall suddenly victim to wrongful death. Here they are:

1. Since wrongful death usually happens in hospitals, make sure that you check the history of wrongful death in this particular place. If this is something you can easily check, then go for it. If you have problems contact a wrongful death attorney. Once you discover that something like that happened in the past there, steer clear of it and look for alternative places that can offer your loved one a similar treatment.

2. Decide whether a treatment is really necessary for your loved one, or could they get better on their own without it. I still remember hearing how the father of one of my friends passed away when I was a teenager, and wrongful death was definitely the cause. It turned out that the treatment he was undergoing wasn’t really necessary, and he could have easily done without it had he not been encouraged to go for it by his wife.

3. Sometimes it might not be clear whether or not wrongful death occurred. If this is the case, it might be wise to look for the help of an attorney such as a miami accident attorney to shed some light on the situation. If you suspect that your loved one died as the result of wrongful death, it is best to leave it in the hands of more experienced lawyers who will be able to determine what kind of actions you can take. Only that way can you be sure that you are getting in the right direction and that the outcome is going to be exactly what you deserve and that the compensation you receive is appropriate to the level of suffering you had to endure.

GM Law Firm, Your Partner in Medical Debts

Millions of Americans have unpaid medical bills with an estimated average of $2,000.  Medical bills pile up not only due to the rising costs of healthcare, but primarily because medical debts are often unplanned expenditures.  Medical debts are incurred out of accidents or emergencies.

More often than not, we only learn how much we owe for medical services and procedures after the services have been performed.  More often than not, the prices on the health care bill are difficult to comprehend and arrive at a time when we are unprepared for expenses.

In some states where the health facility has rights to a lien, the medical debt may be recorded against your property, thereby drastically reducing your credit rating.  A low credit rating will put you in a situation where you will have difficulty in financial standing.

Medical Debts End Up As Credit Card Loans

Health insurance often covers only a measly portion of the health care bills.  If we were unable to set up enough emergency fund we have difficulty in settling our medical bills.  Health facilities encourage patients to pay their bills using their credit cards to be assured that they would be able to collect payments.

Our hospital bills end up as an unsecured loan in credit card companies with high-interest rates.  Because the expenditure was unplanned, we are barely able to remit payments every month until we end up mired deep in debt.

Dealing With Debts Collectors Is A Hassle

Credit card companies pass the medical debts to collection agents who often pester the already beleaguered debtor with frequent calls.  You are protected by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act which provides against harassment and assures confidentiality of your indebtedness.

GM Law Firm, LLC can help shield you from harassment perpetrated by collection agencies and help you negotiate for affordable payment of your medical debts.  When you take us, we immediately inform your creditor to only communicate with us as your counsel.

Unraveling Your Medical Debt

We then subject the credit amount under careful review and verification.  Our negotiators work out a debt management plan with your creditor to reduce your medical debt to a fraction of its original amount, to be paid with a lower interest rate, for a longer period of time.

Call Us Today

Please contact us today and be protected against harassment from debt collectors.  Even if you have debt collection problems other than for medical debts, we can discuss and work out a feasible debt settlement.  Consult now with our attorney for free.

When You Need A Personal Injury Lawyer For Your Injury Claims

There are times when you need to use the skills of experienced personal injury lawyers because the company refuses to settle the matter in good faith or because the injuries could cause the compensation to be higher than average. Certain types of injuries or accidents usually need to have a lawyers’ help, and we have listed some of those injuries and accidents below.

Severe Injuries

The severity of the injuries usually determines the amount of accident compensation. The type of injury you suffer, the amount of your medical bills and the amount of time it takes you torecover measures the severity of an injury. The higher the compensation amount rises, the lower  the chances are that the insurance company will be willing to pay. In this case, it would be worth hiring a Toronto personal injury lawyer to handle the claim in order to ensure that the client receives the most significant compensation possible.

Permanent or Long-Term Disabling Injuries

Some accidents leave people with permanent disability injuries that affect their lives or with physical disabilities for a long time. It can be tough for a person to determine how much a serious injury is worth. This is why it is highly recommended that a personhires a personal injury lawyer who is experienced in such claims, and who can get the most composition out of it.

Toxic Exposure

The use of chemicals has increased in recent years. People have become exposed to contamination in the air, water, products, soil, and even food. When claims are based on such exposures, it is challenging to prove. However, a personal injury lawyer would be very helpful because most of the times these companies or industries have very high protection against these cases.

When Insurance Companies Refuse To Pay

Sometimes, regardless of the kind of injuries or the amount of compensation, some insurance companies will refuse to pay the claim. When you have lost income, and you have covered all of your medical bills, the insurance company may still refuse to make a reasonable settlement for you. In this case, hiring a personal injury lawyer is an excellent idea because they would be able to get the compensation for you in court.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice cases can be difficult to navigate, and they require an experienced personal injury lawyer to handle them. If you have suffered an injury due to a careless, or incompetent doctor, nurse, clinic, laboratory, or any type of medical provider, hiring a lawyer could be your best bet at winning the case.

Final say

Hiring a personal injury lawyer can be a hard task, but you can ask your friends or your acquaintances for referrals for the best option. Do thorough research on the internet so that you can find a lawyer that will get you the best composition for your injuries.

Forming an LLC Has Many Benefits

If your company is not incorporated and your legal structure is as a DBA sole proprietorship, you should seriously consider forming an LLC right away.

It is a very good idea to form an LLC to aid your business and personal goals. Know the fact that LLC (Limited Liability Company) protect you the business owner, and your family, from the business debts and lawsuit judgments.  Most small business experts recommend this legal structure as their preferred organization.

Not too long ago the only type of structure to protect owners assets from business lawsuits were corporations. Even the simplified version, type-S corporation, was difficult to establish and complex to maintain reporting compliance.

Now with the option of an LLC vs a corporation as business entity, business owners can get good protection from present and future business debts from collecting against their personal assets.  As LLC are being more established and commonplace, invididual states are extending even better tax benefits than ever before.

If you are the single business owner, you can indeed form a one-person LLC and it will be taxed as a DBA sole propriertorship. You also get the important protection of limited personal liability and additionally get the positive tax benefits of sole propriertorship. These include owner salary as distributions of profits, taxed a the individual lower rates; business loss pass through which reduces the owner’s taxable income substantially.

In addition to these benefits of LLC formation, owners can also enjoy the ability to have:

  1. More than 75 business owners
  2. Nonresident alien as an owner
  3. More than 80% ownership in a different corporate entity
  4. Pass through business loss tax deductions greater than the owner’s investment in the business inititally
  5. Uneven ownership percentages that may be different than the owners investment in the business
  6. Members owners who are active in the business management still maintaining their personal liability exposure to be limited.

Less Paperwork – Less Labor

In addition to the tax advantages described above, LLC require less paperwork to set up. Plus they require less labor annually to fulfill the state requirements of corporations such as; shareholder meetings, annual reports and states fees.

LLC do not have to stage annual meetings and are also not mandated to keep detailed records, as corporations are required. Most states do not even have LLC annual report filings laws.

Flexibility of Ownership

The S-type corporation does enjoy pass-through taxation benefits, however, they are strict restrictions about ownership. S corporations cannot have more than 100 owners, nor foreign or corporate shareholders. Compare that to LLC which give you the same tax savings of pass-through with no restrictions on the number or type of owners/members allowed.

Management Options

The fixed structure of management of corporations must include a board of directors. These directors regulate company rules and also are responsible for business operations.  Most entrepreneurs want control and flexibility so they appreciate the lack of formal structure of an LLC. These business owners can make their own decisions about company policies and daily operational choices.

Types of Businesses that Should be LLC

Those companies that plan, in the present or future, to raise investment capital for their business should not be structured as an LLC. They should use the corporation business structure which allows for stocks issuance for equity financing, or to eventually go public.

If our firm was the maximum flexibility for ownership and managment decisions, with personal asset protection, then LLC is an excellent choice for your business structure.  Also if you detest paperwork and complex filing restrictions, opt for an LLC as opposed to the more difficult to administer corporation structure.

Not all types of companies are allowed to be set up as LLC. Most financial companies including banks, trusts, and insurance agencies cannot become LLC.  Some states also restrict certain industries. Check with your department of state for your requirements.

California will not allow these types of firms to be LLC; health care providers, accounts and architects.
