Hearsay issues can have profound impact in wrongful death case

To succeed in the legal arena, whether criminal or civil, an individual needs to have a firm grasp on many aspects of the field. Of course, a criminal defendant needs to understand the law they are accused of breaking, as well as any potential penalties they may face. But that's not all. The legal field is shaped not only by statutory law, but also by case law, the rules of trial procedure, and the rules of evidence. These rules can be used to one's advantage, but those who are unfamiliar with them and fail to utilize them can be taken advantage of by knowledgeable prosecutors.

Head-on collision leaves six injured in Delaware

Regardless of how defensively you drive, a negligent driver can take you by surprise in the blink of an eye, leaving you no time to react. Tragically, many car accidents caused by negligent drivers result in innocent individuals either suffering serious injuries or losing their lives. Although it may seem like these serious accidents don't occur all that frequently, the truth of the matter is that they are occurring in your neighborhood, on your commute to work, and on the same streets you drive to pick up your children.

Brain injury victims can turn to an experienced legal team

Whether you've been the victim of a devastating car accident or preventable medical malpractice, the injuries you have suffered can leave you in a dire predicament. You may struggle to cope with the physical pain and suffering you are experiencing, but you are probably also facing unexpected financial losses in the form of medical expenses and lost wages. Regardless of the severity of your injuries, these damages can be stressful and burdensome, and they may leave you feeling afraid of what the future holds. This feeling is multiplied exponentially for those who suffer brain injuries caused by the negligence of another.

After all, a successful wrongful death lawsuit may provide the sense of closure and financial stability that a family needs during such a difficult time.

How is breast cancer diagnosed?

Sometimes it seems like medical technologies and practices are advancing at a rapid pace. New medications can increase disease sufferers' longevity and reduce symptoms, and some operations can leave a patient totally healed of their affliction. However, as is often the case, even the best medical treatments depend a lot on an accurate and timely diagnosis. A failure to diagnose, or a misdiagnosis, can lead to a worsened medical condition, forcing a patient to incur additional pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost wages. In the worst cases, victims of these incidences die. Perhaps, with no other illness is this more the case than with cancer.
