Are Hands-Free Phones Safer?
Q: Is it safer to use a hands-free cell phone? A: Research suggests that it is not. While hands-free devices do help drivers keep their eyes on the road, talking on the phone can still cause a mental distraction. A 2001 University of Utah study found that drivers using a cell phone missed twice as many traffic lights as drivers without a phone. That was true regardless of whether they were using a hands-free device. The study concluded that phone conversations distract drivers in ways that passive listening does not.

When and How to Defend Yourself Legally
There's a law called The Castle Doctrine and it dates back to Old English Common Law that says a man and a woman's home is their castle and they have every right to defend themselves and to defend their home against criminal intrusion. What that means in Indiana is that if somebody is breaking into your home you do not have to flee before you start defending yourself. You can use force, you can even use deadly force, if you reasonably believe that harm is going to come to you or a family member.

Nursing Home Cases - StateLawTV.com
Nursing homes exist to care for people who are so sick or disabled that they can no longer live independently. Unfortunately, those conditions can create opportunities for dishonorable people to take advantage of patients who cannot speak up or fight back. Physical abuse, financial exploitation, neglect and worse have all been reported at nursing homes. In some cases, the abuse can send the victims health into a decline, causing avoidable hospitalization or even a premature death. Even if administrators or criminal prosecutors are investigating, victims and their families can take action through a nursing home negligence lawsuit.

Immigration Law - StateLawTV.com
Immigration attorneys represent people seeking to live and work legally in the United States, or companies seeking to sponsor foreign workers. Immigrants and visitors do not always need a lawyer, but legal representation can greatly reduce the time needed to secure high-demand visas, such as H1-B visas for visiting skilled workers, or green cards for lawful permanent residents. Immigration attorneys also represent people who are in legal trouble because of their immigration status, or in legal trouble that threatens their right to stay in the United States. Experts strongly recommend that people facing deportation or removal hearings retain an immigration lawyer.

Motorcycle Accidents - StateLawTV.com
Unfortunately, its true that motorcycle accidents are deadly. Federal statistics show that motorcyclists are 35 times more likely than drivers to die in a crash. However, statistics also show that most motorcycle crashes involving another vehicle are the other drivers fault, mainly because other drivers fail to see motorcycles until its too late. The results can be a death, brain damage or other serious injury. In addition to being devastating to the victims and their families, these can be extremely expensive to treat. If this happened to you because someone else wasnt watching the road, you can hold that person legally responsible with a lawsuit.

Work Related Accidents - StateLawTV.com
When people are hurt on the job, they can be taken out of the workforce for months while they recover. During that time, they and their families may struggle to make ends meet, especially if the accident meant high medical bills to pay. Most workers can pay these costs by claiming workers compensation benefits through their employers insurance. However, because workers compensation claims can be expensive, some employers and insurers are willing to break the law to avoid paying. When this is the case, workers should always consult an experienced workplace accident attorney to protect their rights and make sure they get the benefits they need.

Q: Is talking on the phone really less safe than talking to a passenger? A: Probably.

It found that drivers on the phone were more likely to drift, miss their exit and tailgate. Passengers were more likely to slow the conversation when driving was difficult, or talk about traffic, suggesting that they were helping drivers keep their minds on driving.

The results can affect entire communities, leading to abnormal concentrations of disease, the destruction of farmland, problems with natural resources or other devastating problems. Because these injuries tend to affect everyone living near the source of the pollution, environmental attorneys typically represent many people at one time in class-action lawsuits.
