How Can I Avoid Foreclosure?

Last month posted a story showing that foreclosure sales are slow, but remain high. The article reported that “Sales of homes in some stage of foreclosure declined in the first three months of the year, but they still accounted for 28 percent of all home sales — a share nearly six times higher than what it would be in a healthy housing market.”

Tori Spelling Car Accident

According to CBS News Tori Spelling was involved in a car accident on Monday June 13. She claims that paparazzi chased her while she was picking her children up from school. LAPD spokeswoman Officer Rosario told E! News that Tori hit a curb near the school and that no one was hurt. I am glad to hear no one was hurt since Tori is pregnant with her 3rd child and had 2 children in the car at the time of the accident.

Why does paparazzi have to hound people to the point that they panic and feel they to to speed away and risk theirlives in a car accident? It reminds me of Princess Diana and how her car sped away due to the paparazzi. Should there be laws that are changed to keep papparazzin away from stars? Can there be laws against paparazzi or would that be against freedom of speech?

I am glad I am not famous and that someone does not follow me around for a picture. Safety really should come first. If it was New York and Tori was in the accident I would tell her to go to see a New York auto accident lawyer at the law firm of Rich & Rich.

Tips On What To Do If You Are Involved In A Georgia Car Accident

I found some great tips from the law firm of Henry Spiegel Milling LLP discussing what to do if you are involved in a Georgia car accident

The following steps are recommended:

Taking the right steps immediately following car accidents can save lives. And doing so helps ensure you have the evidence needed to pursue an effective auto accident case. You should understand these steps before you ever get behind the wheel:

* Call for help: Nothing is more important than the health and safety of everyone involved in the accident. A single call to 911 ensures appropriate emergency workers and paramedics arrive at the scene to provide the help needed by each accident victim.

* Collect information: Georgia law mandates that all drivers carry accident liability insurance. Make sure you look at each driver's insurance card, making note of the policy number and expiration dates. Also, take note of the license number, address information, and expiration date from each driver's license. Ask for phone numbers from both drivers and witnesses.

* Collect evidence from the scene: A cell phone camera can be critical for taking photos of damage to all vehicles, injuries, and the accident site. Be sure to capture skid marks and road conditions, such as ice or water on the roadway. Retain damaged clothing and items inside the car as well.

* Seek professional help: As soon as possible, see a doctor if you sustained any injuries, retaining all receipts and medical reports.

I hope this passing this information helps since the Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety, states that in 2008, there were more than 306,000 crashes on state roadways. Safe Driving. Sphere: Related Content

How Do I Know If I Can Sue For A Surgery Error?

It is important to separate acceptable surgical risks from negligent damages when looking into a medical malpractice case.

However, knowing that surgeries are risky and might cause further injury in some percentage of cases does not absolve doctors and hospitals from their professional and legal responsibilities to provide a high standard of care to their surgical patients. They are expected to know what they are doing, to perform the operation competently, and to respond appropriately to complications that arise during and after the procedure.

When doctors and other hospital staff neglect their responsibilities to you in these areas related to your surgery and you suffer as a result, you may have a medical malpractice case. Some of the more common types of these cases involve:

* Incorrect incision
* Use of unsanitary surgical tools
* Delayed surgery
* Prolonged surgery
* Surgery performed on the wrong organ or side
* Organ puncture
* Surgical instruments or sponges left inside the patient
* Anesthesia errors
* Failure to make the appropriate decision during a surgical emergency

Medical malpractice attorneys in New York explain the difference

For your surgical malpractice case to be considered meritorious, which is necessary for you to obtain money damages, you must prove negligence and not just that the outcome of your operation was not what you had hoped for. You must show that those involved failed to live up to the high standards expected of them as medical professionals.
