A serious fall can set the average person back months in medical bills and lost wages. You may not be able to walk on your own for some time, have difficulty sitting or sleeping comfortably, and need physical therapy to fully recover. While you may not want to make a fuss out of a fall, most injuries are covered under liability insurance. That means that if you were injured on someone else’s property, you may be able to have your medical bills and other expenses paid if the owner contributed to your slip-and-fall.
The first few weeks after a car accident can be some of the most stressful and draining moments of your life. You may be dazed by your injuries, worried about paying medical bills, and tired of dealing with insurance companies. Insurance adjusters often start off sweet-talking accident victims with lofty promises and kind words, only to offer a lowball settlement that barely covers an emergency room visit. With your bills stacking up, you may be tempted to accept it, but you should speak to an attorney first. At Steven Titus & Associates, P.C., we can help you understand the true value of your case and demand proper compensation for your injuries.
Being pulled over is a scary experience. You may have no idea what you did wrong or if you even committed a crime. You should always remember that you have rights under Wyoming state law. These include the right to remain silent, the right to an attorney if you are charged with a crime, and the right to refuse a search. But these rights do come with some exceptions, and there are scenarios where you may have to allow an officer to search your vehicle.
Following a car accident, you should immediately report the incident to the police. Not only is this required by law, but it also can help you file a claim with the other driver’s insurance company. Police reports hold a lot of authority during insurance negotiations and in a jury trial. They may clearly outline why the other driver caused the accident and why he is liable for your injuries, increasing your chances of receiving compensation.
The internet has made it extremely easy to look someone up online. Anyone can pull out a phone and search for someone they used to know on social media with just a few clicks.
While some people may only look up classmates they lost touch with or keep in contact with distant family, others may take it too far.
You should be extremely careful about how you act online, as you may end up being charged with cyberstalking.
Driving along the rural roads and highways of Wyoming puts you at risk for any number of collisions, from dangerous rollovers with oil trucks to being sideswiped by a driver who is texting. In the majority of car crashes, cars will physically hit each other. But what about when a driver swerves and drives you off the road? Are you still eligible to file an insurance claim?
Very few accidents are as complicated, or as devastating, as those involving large semi-trucks. During a collision, these vehicles can cross multiple lanes of traffic and strike several drivers, adding to the confusion. You may not be sure how your accident occurred, much less on how to hold the driver at fault. However, like planes, semi-trucks are required to have black boxes that can record the exact moment an accident occurred and provide much-needed clarity when it comes time to file a claim.
The amount of information and content on Google is massive, and it is growing every day. You can find every recipe imaginable or track down long lost movies you watched late at night years ago. In addition, there are all sorts of rabbit holes you can end up on the worldwide web. While some may seem innocent enough, others can be more questionable and can lead to a darker side of the internet. However, very few of us expect these search results to be used against us in a criminal trial.
Within the state of Wyoming, theft crimes can range from shoplifting to grand theft auto, but very few residents understand the exact ramifications of each crime. These cases can become rather complex, with the difference in charges being based on the value of the stolen property to whether or not a firearm was involved. Altogether, theft crimes can be classified as misdemeanors or felonies, but what exactly is the difference and how can it affect you?
Alternative sentencings have steadily expanded across the United States for the past few decades in order to rehabilitate criminal behavior and lower prison populations more effectively. The state of Wyoming is no different and has several programs in place to allow criminal offenders to avoid prison time while also ensuring the needs of their community are met. This includes everything from probation to substance abuse programs to community service. In addition to programs helping adult offenders move on from a conviction, minors are also eligible for similar programs that can help them avoid developing a criminal record.
