Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is when we’re suppose to give thanks for the blessings of the year. Well that’s something we all need to do every day.  I sure do.  I’m so thankful for my daughter and my wonderful family.  I just don’t know what I would do without them and don’t want to find out either any time soon.

As I’m sure you have figured out, my grandmother is my most special person in the world (after my daughter.) She’s my rock and life just wouldn’t be the same without her so I am so thankful she’s still in my life and hope and pray she will be for many, many more years.

Here’s hoping you have a wonder Thanksgiving.  Just a little humor to help make your day better a little better.

Suing A Solicitor For Negligence

When a person seeks legal advice from a solicitor it means they need professional legal advice from an expert. Unfortunately, it happens that in some instances the solicitor does not hit the mark and that can cause a whole new set of difficulties and even more financial burdens to sort out the old and new problems. Some people may ask what trouble can there be when one make use of a solicitor. Unfortunately, there are a few common reasons why people are suing a solicitor for negligence.

The most common reasons why people are suing a solicitor for negligence are:

1. Under Settling on Claims

This commonly happens when a solicitor is representing a client during a personal injury claim. It is very important that the solicitor provides the client with the right information regarding how much a claim can be worth. In some instances, the solicitor underestimate or misjudge the true value of the claim and or make a mistake during the negotiations with the other parties involved and or accept an unusually low amount of recompense on behalf of the client. This is really good grounds for suing a solicitor for negligence.

2. Missing The Limitation Date

The majority of areas of law have a limitation date. This is the time span after an event has taken place or a disease has been diagnosed in which legal proceedings must be started.  Some people suffer huge compensation losses apart from the initial financial loss. A dire situation such as an accident or illness has caused the solicitor to miss deadline and as a result the case is rejected by the court.

3. Mistakes in Drafting Contracts or Wills

Inaccuracies or miscalculations during the drafting of contracts or wills can cause major implications. More often than not these faults are never noticed for numerous years but at the time when clients want to call upon a contract or with the death of a person these mistakes or invalid wills can cause great difficulties and make the entire process of dealing with the loss of a loved one even more traumatic. In the event of contracts inappropriately unfittingly contracts can cause equal amounts of trouble for individuals and businesses alike. Many cases where people are suing a solicitor for negligence, involves mistakes in the drafting of wills or contracts.

4. Inadequate Advice on Building Regulations & Planning Permissions

When people decide to purchase a new property, build a new property or renovate an existing building there are numerous laws and regulations that needs to be adhered to. It only makes sense that one will make use of the services of a solicitor. In some instances the solicitor did not do proper research about the required planning permissions, building regulations, and or agreements or terms of the contracts. Needless to say, a blunder in this regard has huge financial implications and can cause serious suffering and destitution.

This is the first year I have been old enough to vote and I DID IT!! I hope you did too. My grandmother told me that this is one of the most important things I can do to help our country. It doesn’t matter if the person I voted for wins or loses, my voice was heard either way. That’s a pretty empowering feeling to know that my one tiny voice will be heard. I just hope the best man wins no matter which one it is. I just hope they help all of us and not a select few.

More Christmas stuff than Halloween stuff

I went to a local retail store and I couldn’t believe my eyes. They had about 5 times more Christmas stuff out than they did Halloween stuff and that even includes all the candy. Why is it that it seems every year they put the Christmas stuff out earlier and earlier? I guess they’re trying to catch people while they still have a little money hoping they’ll start their Christmas shopping early.

Well I don’t get my Christmas fund money until the middle of November so I couldn’t start shopping for Christmas if I wanted to yet. You know, I could start putting stuff on layaway. What am I saying? Here I was fussing and now I’m thinking of layaway. Shame on me!!
