When a divorce occurs, you will need legal help

Imagine you and your spouse have lived together and enjoyed a happy marriage for many years. You've had your ups and downs, but you've always managed to get through the worst times. But one day, the two of you have a serious disagreement that can't be fixed or changed. As the weeks and months go by, the two of you realize that the marriage is untenable and you opt for a divorce.

Protecting your business trade secrets

A trade secret is information that gives a company some type of an edge in business. In order to be considered a trade secret, as explained by the World Intellectual Property Organization, this information must be kept protected. Steps must be taken to safeguard the information to ensure it does not fall into the hands of anyone outside the company who is not authorized to have access to it. A company does not have to register or fill out any paperwork to get protection for a trade secret. It is automatically granted as long as the information is kept confidential.

Returning to work after suffering a brain injury

A number of workers who are injured on the job suffer from varying degrees of traumatic brain damage. This can occur when employees slip and fall on a liquid spill or clutter left on the floor, have a falling object strike their heads or fall from a substantial height. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traumatic brain damage accounts for approximately 30 percent of all injury deaths in the United States. While some industries, such as construction, are notorious for causing more cases of TBI than others, brain damage can occur in any type of work setting. In some cases, the damage can be so extreme that the worker is unable to return to work, and perform the duties that they did before the accident occurred.
