Here at Weiss Berger Law Translation, we make it our mission to demystify complicated legal statutes so that layperson’s can better understand what that ridiculous-sounding legalese really means. Law is complicated. If you ever find yourself injured because of someone else’s poor decision-making, comparative negligence is going to play a huge role in your ability to file a personal injury claim against that person and recover financial damages. In a nutshell, comparative negligence means that your own level of fault for what happened will reduce the amount of money you can receive.
This is how it works: After hearing your case, a jury will decide “how much” at fault everyone involved in the accident was, as determined by the evidence presented. They’ll find each party responsible for a percentage of the fault until the full 100 percent has been divvied up. Any percentage you’re responsible for will then reduce your end financial award by the same percentage.That’s just a fact. And the way that laws are written doesn’t exactly help.That’s where we come in.To start with, we’re going to take a look at a few civil tort statutes from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and spell out what these inscrutable blocks of text really mean for you:

If you are interested in obtaining relief from your debts by filing for bankruptcy, you should consult the experienced attorneys at the Bankruptcy Center of Illinois.Often, debtors are inundated with telephone calls by creditors. It can be stressful to deal with creditor harassment when you are unable to pay your debts. You may be facing foreclosure or repossession of your car. You may be worried about how you will survive financially.The filing of a bankruptcy petition triggers an automatic stay. While the automatic stay is in effect, your creditors will be prevented from trying to collect debts that you owe. Your assets will be evaluated by a trustee, and they may be liquidated, with the funds used to repay some of your outstanding debt. Certain debts are non-dischargeable, such as alimony, child support, and some taxes. While bankruptcy can give you a fresh start, it stays on your credit report for a period of time. A bankruptcy attorney in Chicago can advise you on which chapter may be right for you.
