Personal Injury And The Role Of The Judge

When A Personal Injury Settlement Can't Be ReachedThe decision to go to trial for a lawsuit involving personal injury or even wrongful death should never be entered into lightly. A trial can be a long and grueling process, and sometimes it may take years to get a legal resolution. But regardless of whether you’re in a criminal trial, or your own civil trial for a lawsuit, there are two things that remain the same; the presence of the jury and the judge. But who is the judge, and why is he or she even there?
Not The Final Arbiter
The presence of the jury is obvious, once it has been explained. A jury is a group of people—in the case of a civil trial, six people—who have been selected to attend the trial. They are the decision makers for whom evidence must be presented, arguments made, witnesses and testimony given. And finally, after final, closing arguments are complete, it is the jury that must deliberate, and reach a decision about whether to award or deny damages in a lawsuit.

In other words, they actually decide the outcome of the trial. So if that’s what they... read article

What Happens After Filing A Slip And Fall Injury Claim?

 What Happens After Filing A Slip And Fall Injury Claim? After you’ve been in a slip and fall accident, and you’ve filed your claim, you may be wondering what the next steps of the process will be.

Wildlife Tours And Personal Liability

 Wildlife Tours And Personal LiabilityFlorida is home to the Everglades, and if you keep going north up the center of the state you’ll find plenty of swamps, lakes, and forests teeming with wildlife. But not all of that wildlife is safe to be around: black bears roam the forests and both crocodiles and alligators call the wetlands of Florida home. And even if you stay clear of the wildlife, swamps and forests don’t exactly follow OSHA standards. So who is responsible for your safety if you’re injured on a tour of Florida’s natural beauty?

Self-Guided Tour

If you decide to march out into the wilderness with no guide and you blaze your own trail, then you are the only person responsible for your safety. Even if you’re wandering through a state or federal park or forest, the government has no responsibility for anything that happens to you when you leave the paved and patrolled trails behind.
