Is a personal injury attorney important after a car crash?

In the aftermath of a car accident, there are many things to worry about and actions to take, at a time when you are probably shaken up and not thinking very clearly. The first thing to do is check to yourself and others for injuries, and the first calls you make should likely to be to 911 and then to the police.

My deployment is coming to an end and so is my marriage

Welcome home, soldier. Your year-long deployment to the Middle East is over. You can't wait to go on leave with your spouse and spend some of the money you saved while overseas on that Mustang you've always wanted. Even better, your NCOIC has promised that you're due to see a promotion soon. It's all hooah, right?

When you graduated from AIT, you went back home to marry your high school sweetheart. She joined you at your first duty station, and you enjoyed life together in on-post housing, sharing all the benefits the Army has to offer.

1 trucker's removal from the road too late for 6 victims

Kentucky drivers, take heart. Federal officials have removed a commercial truck driver from the road. This after he allegedly caused a string of accidents that left six people injured. It is unclear at the time this is written whether any of the victims in this case are seeking to recover for injuries and damages suffered. They should know, however, that they have a right to.

The accidents in question occurred several weeks ago along Interstate 24. According to reports, a waste removal truck with a Kentucky-licensed commercial driver at the wheel crossed the median of the freeway and continued to drive erratically into oncoming traffic. He reportedly struck at least two vehicles, and several collisions followed. Police used spike strips in their efforts to bring the truck to a stop.

How well do you know terms concerning child custody?

No two Kentucky divorces are alike. The relationships that create families are as varied as the individuals involved. If a couple splits and no children are affected, resolving issues associated with property division and possible spousal support could be rather easy. Where children are involved, matters are more complicated. Where will the children live? Who will make major life decisions for the child? How much time will the child spend with each parent? Will grandparents play any role?

Every member of a family has certain rights and those experienced in protecting those rights know that any one of the questions posed above can lead to disputes. Finding the answers that work best for all takes concerted effort. Typically, the best way to start is to be sure everyone is on the same page understanding the differences in various terms related to child custody.
