Personal Injury Cases Law And Othe...

Personal injury is a legal term used to describe physical, mental and emotional injuries suffered due to the wrongdoing or negligence of another person, government and/or any other entities. The legal system allows an injured person to file a lawsuit and get legal remedies for the losses incurred in the accident.

Typically injury cases include automobile accidents, defamation claims, construction accidents, injuries due to defective products, animal bites and so on. Claimants when win the case can be compensated for their pains and sufferings. However, it is not always possible to win an automobile accident or any other personal injury cases without the help of an experienced Injury lawyer Santa Rosa. He/she is a professional who provides all legal guidance or representation to the injured. A lawyer understands the laws and proceedings of a case and hence is the right person who should be consulted immediately after an accident.

Filing a lawsuit against the person because of whose negligence caused the accident is a complex process that requires a professional help to do all the formalities within the law. It is important to find a good lawyer immediately after the accident to ensure that the cases can be filed within the time bracket. There is a certain time limit specified in the law within which the case should be filed.

Personal injury lawsuits can often take longer, and the injured person may often wonder when they will get their settlement. There is no typical personal injury case on the basis of which time can be estimated. Every pattern, fact, party or injury differs, even slightly, so does the time consumed in the process. So, it is always impossible to predict when the case will be settled.

However, despite case-specific nuances, most claims are settled within a year or two. Medical negligence or malpractice claims may take longer to settle as they involve more complex factors and issues.

Typically in all the cases, a plaintiff who successfully wins the personal injury claim is entitled to compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost income, physical and mental distress. There are also instances when the personal injury claims go for out of the court settlement where plaintiff receives a set amount for all their sufferings. If out of the court settlement is not enough to cover all losses or if it doesn’t happen at all, then a Personal injury attorney Sonoma County has to be consulted to file the lawsuit in the court.

The complexity of the cases can be better managed by an attorney, so take time to find the best lawyer having experience in handling similar kind of cases.

How to File Chapter 11 Bankruptcy i...


 Published on May 23, 2014 by

Justin McMurray

Filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy follows the same initial procedures as filing bankruptcy under other chapters. The process starts with general filings of the bankruptcy petition, statement of financial affairs, and supporting schedules. These are essentially the same forms that are required in consumer bankruptcy cases, except that the questions are answered in a different manner because the petitioner (debtor) is an operating business.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is different from consumer bankruptcy petition in that it requires immediate supplemental filings of "first day motions." An operating business must acquire court approval to continue its operations immediately upon filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy. For instance, approval is immediately required to authorize wage payments accrued prior to filing. These kinds of payments are needed so employees of the business going bankrupt are not forced to resign and find another employment. First day motions are also issued so that the business can continue to pay vendors, suppliers, and other people, parties, and entities that the business uses.

A package regarding the standard operating guidelines is sent to Chapter 11 debtors from the US Trustee's office. Should a creditor have a lien on the filer's or debtor's cash in the banks, the ruling court would authorize the debtor to use this cash for the business' operations.

Find a qualified bankruptcy attorney to draft your first day motions prior to filing. This way, documents can immediately be submitted and filed after the bankruptcy petition. The court is going to hear these first day motions on an emergency basis, then issue appropriate orders so the business may survive. During the hearing, the court will also issue orders to determine whether the debtor's filing is in compliance while setting forth standards and guidelines that the court expects the debtor's operation to follow.

First day motions are heard on an emergency basis, rather than the first day after filing. This is often within the first week of the petition. A notice is also given to the creditors, where the petitioner has their contact information. As a practicality, some first day motions are heard before, some creditors give notice.

First day orders also include an application by the bankruptcy lawyer to be retained by the petitioner, authorizing the debtor to pay him/her up to 70% of the up-to-date billing, provided that the billings may be examined by the court later.

Bottled Business Sense Newsletter and The Bottled Business Sense Radio Show, driven by WFB Legal Consulting, Inc., sponsor weekly "Protection Points" for the small business owner. Many times employers improperly classify their employees as independent contractors so they, the employers, do not have to pay payroll taxes, the minimum wage or overtime, comply with other wage and hour law requirements such as providing meal periods and rest breaks, or reimburse their workers for business expenses incurred in performing their jobs.  Moreover, employers do not have to cover independent contractors under workers’ compensation insurance, and are not liable for payments for unemployment insurance, disability insurance, or social security. Make sure you have a LAWYER FOR BUSINESS who can provide your business with the BEST ASSET PROTECTION available.

LLC and S-Corp. 101


 Published on Mar 31, 2014 by

Bill Bernard

Both the LLC and S corporation are well-liked among accountants and small businesses because of their “pass-through” tax treatment. Unlike a C corporation, both of these structures do not pay taxes on business profits; rather profits are passed along to the owner(s) and reported on their individual tax returns. Moreover, both structures separate the owners from the business and provide liability protection. 

However, there are some differences between the two. For example, an LLC is typically much easier to run from an administrative standpoint. There are fewer state filings and forms, lower start-up costs, fewer formal meetings and documentation than there are with a C or S corporation. This conceivably could be advantageous to small business owners who don’t want to be bothered with excess paperwork. 

The LLC also offers more flexibility in how owners can allocate a percentage of profits and losses among its owners. Example:  you start a business with a friend and you each own 50 percent of the business. One year, your friend has something come up in her personal life and doesn’t spend as much time on the business as you have. You both ultimately decide that the fair thing to do would be to give you 60 percent of the profits for the year. If you had formed an S corporation, you would both still be taxed based on the percentage of your ownership (i.e. you would be taxed on 50 percent of the profits; your fellow shareholder on 50 percent, even though you might have agreed to a different “arrangement”). Conversely, the LLC does give you the flexibility to determine how you want to allocate your business’ profits so that each owner canl be taxed accordingly. 

Nevertheless, there is a critical advantage of an S corporation with regard to taxes. The S corporation gives you more flexibility in how earnings are paid to the owners. Example: with an LLC, the entire net earnings are passed along to the owner(s) in the form of self-employment income and are consequently subject to self-employment tax for Social Security and Medicare. However, with the S corporation, you have the option of dividing up earnings into wages/salaries versus passive income in the form of distributions. Only the wages/salaries are subject to the FICA tax for Social Security and Medicare. The “passive” distributions are not. IMPORTANT NOTE: keep in mind that as an owner working in your business, you must pay yourself a reasonable salary for the job you do. You cannot get away with giving yourself a $40,000 annual salary and taking $175,000 in distributions, for example.
