Every time a person visits a business they have an expectation that they will be safe while visiting the property. It's when businesses fail to meet this obligation that they face the risk of a lawsuit by the person who was injured. One of the most common types of injuries that individuals face while at a business involves slipping and falling, and this goes far beyond falling down as a result of a wet floor.  Forms of Negligence Patrons are often warned when terrain is hazardous, as many businesses now utilize signs when floors are wet or surfaces are uneven. It is when these indicators aren't present that business may find themselves in danger of a lawsuit, and examples of these scenarios can include: Elevators that make rapid takeoff or stopping movements and shake suddenly Stairs that are in disrepair and create a tripping or falling hazard for those traversing them Indoor and outdoor surfaces that are uneven or pose a stumbling hazard due to inadequate maintenance or repair Pursuing a Case Those who are victims of a slip and fall accident will often have both immediate and long-term injuries that result. These injured areas are often located in the neck, back, or legs of the individual, and can sometimes be present in all three areas at once.

Finding the ideal divorce lawyer can be an overwhelming process during an already difficult time in your life. This will ultimately be the person that you turn to for assistance with essential decisions pertaining to your divorce. A divorce lawyer can either work with you from start to finish or on a more limited basis. In rare cases in which you and your spouse feel confident in your own abilities to draft a decent divorce agreement, you may be able to minimize the use of an attorney. However, you will still require the initial advice and information as well as an evaluation for finalization. When you have in fact found your ideal divorce lawyer, it will not likely be as easy as looking through the yellow pages and spotting a nice full page advertisement. Additionally, you will not want to settle with the lawyer who simply assisted in the negotiation of your office lease or the drafting of a relative’s will.

Recent court cases are redefining property laws and testing the boundaries of renters’ rights. The national LEED rating system, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, was amended to include three major new requirements for property builders. Property owners that rent or lease real estate to tenants have been taking action against questionable practices regarding subleases contracted through the website Airbnb. These changes to green property laws and renters’ rights are creating a complicated situation for tenants, landlords, and developers. LEED certification becomes a greater challenge Three new articles added to the LEED certification application require green property owners to report specific details about their building materials to the government. Building contractors must provide accurate measurements of all water and energy consumed by LEED-certified properties, and they can receive a credit for providing documentation of meetings between subcontractors before construction begins. The Material Transparency clause changes the way homeowners report green building materials to the LEED agency. Previously, only specific attributes of materials were requested, but now materials must be rated by how long they can be expected to last. This change could affect contractors, designers, and investors across the real estate industry. The Energy Metering clause requires building owners to record all energy and water consumption. It’s an attempt by the certification agency to put an end to false energy reports that were supplied in the past by dishonest developers. The Integrated Design clause offers developers an easy way to earn credits by submitting proof of meetings between...
