When do you require hiring a personal injury attorney?

Published

on

A personal injury case can change your life, or change the life of a dear one forever. This can bring on such mental and/or physical trauma, that the distress can prevent you from living a normal life forever. If you or a dear one is affected in one such case after an accident, or slip or fall, or product-related damage, etc., then you have every right to fight for your rights and get compensated. In fact, personal injury cases demand more compensation than others because the affected may not stay in a state to accumulate and arrange money for needed treatment. Only compensation can then help the person arrange for treatment funds, and get treated to try and come back to normal life and schedule.

How to fight for a personal injury case

Fighting for a personal injury case demands a personal injury lawyer in the first place. A personal injury lawyer would be one who is experienced in fighting and winning such cases. And you can get hold of one such lawyer by contacting reliable sources like New York City car injury lawyer ASK4SAM.

Carefully chose the lawyer

It’s on the choice of the lawyer that your case turns into a win or loss. If the lawyer has the right mindset to find clues, collect evidence, and arrange the case for winning, then you are sorted. The lawyer must treat our case with enough care to help you raise the necessary funds for your treatment and compensation.

Avoid choosing a lawyer in a hurry

One of the biggest problems people face after a personal injury is that they often miss the point of contacting a lawyer in the initial phase. After a few days when they realize that they are in a problem state, out of their job for the time, out of daily activities, missing earnings, and also spending hugely on medical expenses, then only they think about getting in contact with a lawyer. But then you are generally in a hurry to get justice and find a way. Hence the choice for the lawyer is made in a hurry may not be a great one. That is why it’s good to stay prepared for the worst while hoping for the best. If you are always ready with a contact number of one or two personal injury lawyers, you will not have to search for one in times of need.

Finally

You must not ever suffer in silence after a personal injury. Whoever is at fault, and however big and influential and powerful the name is, you can fight back and get justice. The selection of the right attorney would help you get justice, and your attitude and will power to fight would add to it. Hence, with any case of personal injury, you must immediately contact a reliable lawyer, and get the case sorted. You would really be in need of the compensation money in such cases, and the lawyer would help you fetch that.

Published

on

A Sunday evening attack by gunmen on Unguwan Magaj community in Kauru Local Council of Kaduna State may have left four indigenes dead and 36 homes torched.
But the bravery of the youths reportedly led to the death of one of the attackers and confiscation of his handset.
Useful information was said to have been retrieved from the phone that had allegedly been handed over to the police.
In a statement yesterday, the National Public Relations Officer of the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU), Luka Biniyat, said: “The invaders, who came by 6:45 pm yesterday (Sunday) from behind the hills that serve as the boundary of Kaduna State and Ganawuri, Plateau State, were numbered over a 100.
“They attacked from four flanks, causing pandemonium among unsuspecting villagers as the youths tried to fend them off.”
He continued: “After about 30 minutes of violence, the following were unfortunately killed: Mrs Hanatu Joseph, 58, mother of five children; Mrs Sarah Sunday, 40, she left behind her husband and six children.
“The others are: Mrs Dije Sajay, 55, married with six children; and Mr Sunday David, 47, married with seven children. He was a retrenched civil servant.”
He noted: “The attackers targeted food stores and bans of grains, making sure they burnt as much as they could. This is to ostensibly cause starvation, especially under this lockdown from the Coronavirus.
“Police and soldiers came into Unguwan Magaji only this morning (yesterday) around 9 am and saw the corpse of the dead herdsman, which they later took away.”
Besides, Biniyat said: “Early this month yesterday, Ibrahim Atiga, 42, a native of Unguwan Magaji, was killed by herdsmen on his way to the farm. He has since been buried.”

I’ll Give Special Attention To Respect For Citizens’ Fundamental Rights – CP …Citizens Set Agenda For Him

Published

on

The new Rivers State  Commissioner of Police, Mr Joseph Mukan has said that he would give special  attention to  respect for citizens’ fundamental human rights in the state.
This was contained in a statement issued by the  Public Relations Officer of the Rivers State Police  Command, DSP Nnamdi Omoni and made available to newsmen last Monday in Port Harcourt .
The statement said that Mr Mukan would rekindle the people’s confidence in the police and as well reposition the command for efficiency and productivity.
According to the statement, the new Police Commissioner would be expected to work with humility and integrity as part of efforts to command a better police force in the state.
It further revealed that the Rivers police boss has an impeccable track record in crime fighting, thus the trust to make good his promises.
The Rivers State Commissioner of Police, however, through the statement, solicited for cooperation in terms of information sharing from the people in order to help the command to serve them better.
Meanwhile, some members of the public have called on the new Police Commissioner to remain neutral and face his primary assignment of policing.
A Port Harcourt-Based lawyer, Emperor Nnaoma, who spoke in an interview with The Tide , yesterday, said Mr Mukan must pay priority attention to his core mandate of crime fighting, if he wants to succeed in the state.
Nnaoma, recalled that previous Commissioners of Police who went outside their major task never ended well in the state.
In his view, the Eze Oha Evo III of Evo Kingdom, King Leslie N Eke, said the Commissioner should make out time to check the activities of some of his men who allow themselves into chieftaincy issues in the communities.
The Eze Gbakagbaka/Nyerisi Eli Woji, said that such interference has divided the attention of some police officers in the state as they are always tempted to dance to the tune of their pay masters.
