  • Can Filing For Bankruptcy Actually Improve a Person’s Credit?

      While bankruptcy can have significant benefits for many people, one of the main drawbacks is that the fact that you filed for bankruptcy can appear on your credit score for up to ten years. As a result, many people who are considering bankruptcy may be hesitant to actually file because they believe that it will be difficult or impossible to obtain financing at a reasonable interest rate for several years.

  • Why Determining Medical Malpractice Can Be Challenging for Non-Attorneys

    In most jurisdictions, the key to proving malpractice goes beyond determining what happened and what went wrong -- it goes to whether the healthcare provider’s actions (or inactions) didn’t live up to the standard of care that’s expected. Even lawyers can’t come up with that determination. They need to hire medical experts. You can get the facts. What do you do with them? The average person will probably have a very difficult time finding the relevant facts of a possible ...

  • Is a DUI Possible With Self-Driving Cars?

    Recently, I came across an newspaper article in which a San Fran man was arrested on January 13, 2018, because he decided to take advantage of a Tesla self-driving car.  Actually, he was arrested for DUI when he was found passed out behind the wheel - the car was in self-drive mode. Lately, I've been paying particular attention to self-driving cars and car accidents, but is a DUI possible even though one is not driving?  The short answer is "yes." Why?  Well, it has to do with ...

  • Could St Petersburg’s “Complete Streets” plans increase bicycle accidents and injuries amongst pedestrians?

    The City of St Petersburg has put together a list of 16 projects it is calling “Complete Streets”. The idea calls for adding buffered bike lanes to segments of busy roads such as 9th Avenue N, 16th Street, 54th Avenue and Park Street. St Petersburg city planners assume all 16 corridors could lose a lane of traffic to make way for bike lanes or for diagonal parking, but they won’t know until each project is studied, redesigned and approved.

    Federal law governs bankruptcy cases in the United States.

However, bankruptcy cases filed in one state can still differ significantly from bankruptcy cases filed in another state. This is because each state has its own laws regarding available bankruptcy exemptions in a Chapter 7 liquidation case and in Chapter 13 r...
