Deciding On Paying Bond

When someone has been arrested, that person will usually be given a bail amount. This is an amount that needs to be paid in order for the person to be released from jail. Fortunately, a bondsman Arapahoe County Colorado offers can help in getting the person released without paying the entire bail amount. Before you make a decision to pay the bond for someone, there are a few questions that you might want to consider so that you don’t waste money and so that you know the fine details of how the process works.

Collateral is usually not a requirement when you post a bond for someone. However, you do have to pay something to the bondsman for the services that are provided and as a promise that the person will appear in court. Cash is the best option. However, most bondsmen will accept a credit or debit card. Some will accept a check if you have some kind of proof that it won’t bounce. You can sometimes use a car title as well.

In the event that you don’t pay the bondsman, then the agency can sue you. If the person doesn’t go to court, then the agency can issue a warrant for that person’s arrest. The person who signed the bond agreement would then be responsible for the entire bail amount instead of only the bond amount that was paid. If you think that the person you’re trying to get out of jail won’t go to court, then you might want to consider holding off on paying the bond for that person. Even if the person does go to court, you won’t get your money back for the bond amount that was paid. The same thing would happen if the person is found guilty. You are essentially paying … Read more

Two Teens Struck by Vehicle

Two teenagers were injured in a crash with a vehicle at 5:20 AM last Friday, August 4 near Durango and Tropicana. The pedestrians, aged 14 or 15, were both harmed in the accident. One of the teenagers was transported to University Medical center while the other incurred minor injuries. Both pedestrians’ injuries were non-life-threatening. After the crash, the driver remained on the scene.

Speeding-Related Accidents

Currently, the cause of Friday’s accident is unknown. However, the speed limit for both Tropicana and Durango is 45 mph. Drivers who exceed posted speed limits do not have physics on their side: higher driving speeds reduce the time drivers have to process information such as pedestrians entering their line of travel, and the possibility of a collision increases dramatically. Many pedestrians survive slow-speed encounters, but as a driver’s speed increases, the pedestrian’s survival rate drops. Even if drivers carefully observe speed limits, the likelihood of a pedestrian suffering serious injury in a crash with a vehicle going 45 mph is at least 75{4e5d4244b5badbebd68bd3bff507f409f0aba88cdeb4abca04ddc27fb95554bc}.

Drowsy Driving?

The crash happened in the early morning at 5:20. Although few details have been released, it is possible that the driver may have been sleepy. In a 24-hour city like Las Vegas, many people work graveyard or early morning shifts, and those who do are more likely to drive drowsy at least a few days a month than people who work daytime hours. The effect of drowsy driving is serious: according to a recent study, being awake for eighteen hours is roughly the equivalent of having a blood alcohol level of .05. (At .08, one is considered legally drunk.)

Legal Issues

In Nevada, it is a violation of NRS 484B.653 to drive with “willful or wanton disregard” for others’ safety, and in many cases, it might be determined … Read more

Justice for Birth Injuries Due To Malpractice

Birth injuries are always tragic. No matter what caused them, the consequences are usually heartbreaking to see. While there are a few rare instances where the doctor did all he could do, in most cases a hospital or doctor is responsible for these injuries. There are many different types of cases seen on birthinjurymedicalmalpractice.com, and the consequences vary in severity, but all of them that successfully prove a doctor, hospital, or organization guilty of causing these injuries put a spotlight on the need for better care in the United States.

The primary thing that a lawyer wants to do when one of these cases is brought to them is protect the parents and infant involved in the incident. Birth injuries occur in far too many births. In reality, they should never happen. Medical science has advanced far enough that there is enough information and equipment to ensure that every birth goes smoothly for its entire duration. Unfortunately, that leaves room for human error and this does happen.

 

 

Examples of birth injuries

Medical malpractice cases can be brought against a doctor, hospital, or nurse for any number of different reasons. Some injuries are more common than others. For example:

– Wrongful birth, where parents were not told about a birth defect that would have caused them to end the pregnancy

– Failing to control blood-loss during and after delivery, resulting in injury to the mother… in some cases, ending her life

– Injuries from a seizure during delivery, caused by undetected preeclampsia (high blood pressure during pregnancy)

All of these instances can cause horrific injury to the mother or the baby, resulting in years of medical bills. In the case of wrongful birth, parents will be caring for that child for the rest of the child’s life. In … Read more
