Personal Injury

Personal injury refers to the area of law involving the unintentional physical or emotional injury of a person by another person, company, or entity. Under personal injury law, accident and injury victims are entitled to be compensated if they can prove the accident or injury was caused by another person’s negligence. Proving negligence is an essential element in any personal injury case, as the victim will not be able to successfully recover compensation without doing so. Thus the need to contact The Clark Law Office, experienced trial attorneys who have recovered millions of dollars for injury victims, with multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements to their credit. Our Lansing injury lawyers can quickly preserve your rights and investigate the facts before time and inattention erodes memories and physical evidence. Negligence refers to recklessness or carelessness that leads to an accident or injury. Negligence can be committed in many ways, including:

A recent study has been performed regarding the traffic deaths from 1990 to 2009. The study looked at data from all 50 states but focused in on the states that have passed medical marijuana legislation. It turns out that states with medical marijuana provision have had a 9% decrease in all traffic fatalities. The study was done by professors at the University of Oregon, Montana State University, and The University of Colorado-Denver. The study doesn’t address what the reason behind this decrease in traffic deaths is due to, but many people believe that more people are ingesting medical marijuana instead of alcohol. It would be interesting to see if the amount of alcohol sales dropped along with the traffic fatalities. If I hear any more information about this topic, I’ll be sure to keep you informed.

Many Michigan residents are concerned over a possible law that would require drug testing for all welfare recipients in the state. The proposal has brought alot of controversy including many people that feel recipients should recieve much needed help with their problems instead of being shunned by the system. Regardless, the proposed drug testing will also apply to new applicants in addition to current applicants.

Unlike a previous drug testing system which was halted many years ago, this drug testing will only be a one time process. The test would not be random in nature. The premise behind this proposal is that it would better utilize the tax dollars from Michigan residents. Policymakers must feel that this increases the way our tax dollars are being used. One important clarification that I will be following is whether this law will be applied to all recipients or just those suspected of drug use. The legislation was introduced last month in the state House. According to the state department, testing is very feasible and they expect a program for suspicion-based drug testing. I wonder when we will start drug testing for politicians, that would be the day. The America Civil Liberties Union has publised a comprehensive position opposed to the testing which can be found on their website.
