Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 08, 2013
Morgan Carroll, an attorney with Bachus & Schanker, LLC, recently was selected president-elect of the Colorado Senate. She is expected to be officially confirmed when the Senate reconvenes in January.
I am honored to have been chosen by my colleagues as the President-Elect of the Colorado State Senate. I am looking forward to doing all I can to help the people of Colorado and to be able do so with the full support of Bachus & Schanker. I am grateful to be working with people who share a passion for justice, said Carroll.
Carroll cultivated her finely tuned sense of justice after spending countless hours at her parents disability law practice. Watching her parents work on a myriad of civil rights issues piqued her desire to advocate for people who have experienced an injury or injustice.
Carroll graduated from the University of Colorado School of Law in 2000 as class president. It was while practicing law with her mother at Bradley & Carroll that she was urged by a state representative to run for political office. In 2005, she began serving in the Colorado legislature and has since earned a reputation for standing up for the disenfranchised.
From the start, Carroll bucked tradition, refusing to comply with lobbyists requests to leave the floor to be lobbied on issues while debating and voting on the floor. While this alienated some, she quickly learned her way around the capitol and became an increasingly effective legislator. Committed to leveling the playing field for ordinary people to exercise their rights, in 2011, she parlayed her knowledge into a book, Take Back Your Government: A Citizens Guide to Grassroots Change (http://www.amazon.com/Take-Back-Your-Government-Grassroots/dp/B0091X3UXG).
Carroll joined Bachus & Schanker in January 2013 as an associate attorney (http://www.coloradolaw.net/html/carroll.html), where she specializes in social security disability, personal injury, workers compensation and employment law. She has extensive experience in state, federal, administrative and appellate courts, and is a member of several professional development organizations.
We are tremendously proud that Morgan is part of our team, and we wholeheartedly support her work in the Senate, said founding partner Kyle Bachus. She has an outstanding track record in leading the fight for ordinary people at the legislature over the last several years. She is a great fit for Bachus & Schanker because she shares our passion for helping people and cares deeply about protecting individual rights.
Now recognized as one of the most powerful women in the state, some people are talking Carroll could be a contender for governor. In a state with a fairly progressive record for womens rights, no woman has ever held the highest statewide office, governor or secretary of state. For the immediate future, she plans on continuing to practice law, believing that by being in touch with the personal issues that people experience, she can be a better legislator.
Ive been very lucky to have the opportunities to make a difference in peoples lives, both through my work as a legislator and as an attorney, says Carroll.

An auto crash that killed a 15-year-old girl and left her younger sister critically injured at a Yonkers church carnival was called a freak sudden-acceleration crash by USA Today (10.18.13). Charges in the crash, if any, will depend on the findings of collision reconstructionists. Attorney at Law David Perecman has worked with a number of reconstructionists to determine the cause of auto accidents.
It can take weeks or months for collision reconstructionists to determine which human, mechanical, electrical, or environmental factors, or combination of factors, caused the accident, said Perecman, an auto accident lawyer for over 30 years.
The girls were injured when a sixth-grade teacher driving a 2002 Jeep jumped a curb and hit them. According to USA Today, the vehicle driven by teacher Roseanne Piccirilli, 55, lurched out of a parking lot spot and went through an intersection, hitting multiple vehicles before crashing into the girls on the sidewalk.
The crash killed Kalie Gill. Her sister Lindsey, 12, was left critically injured, said USA Today.
The process of accident reconstruction begins with the accident scene, and then may involve scientific mathematical analysis, software, models, forensic animation, and-or testing to recreate the events of an accident.
Sudden acceleration accidents can be attributed to a number of issues including human error, such as new drivers who hit the gas instead of the brake. Also to blame may be medical emergencies, defective cars or a car mat leaning against the gas pedal as brakes are applied.
A March 2012 study (DOT HS 811 597) sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated that there are seven to fifteen pedal misapplication crashes every month in the United States.
When an accident is unexplained or disputed a scientific investigation conducted by a qualified accident reconstructionist can definitely help, said Perecman.
Families or individuals involved in accidents involving unintended application should consult an experienced auto accident lawyer. The auto accident attorneys at The Perecman Firm in New York have helped many people obtain the compensation they deserve following car accidents in New York. Contact The Perecman Firm at 212-977-7033.
The USA Today article cited is The science of reconstructing a freak accident.

No matter your age, theres a fun way to spend Halloween. Young children may be looking forward to going around their neighborhoods in costumes, adults may be heading to Halloween parties, and still others may simply derive joy out of staying home and handing out candy.
But no matter how citizens intend to spend the holiday, safety always has to remain a top priority. In his position as a personal injury lawyer, the Bernard Law Groups own Kirk Bernard has seen his share of situations turn tragic because fun hijinks got out of hand, and he wants to make sure such incidents are a rarity this year.
Halloween is a time when many people decide to leave their inhibitions by the wayside, said Mr. Bernard. But that doesnt absolve anyone celebrating Halloween of their responsibility to protect their neighbors. Whether youre going house to house soliciting candy or heading to a local haunted attraction, there are certain precautions that need to be taken so that the holiday is more treat and less trick.
With that in mind, citizens should consider the following tips focused on eight Halloween activities.
1. Trick-or-Treating- This is the most obvious activity, and as such, it draws the brunt of media attention. Parents should supervise their children each year until theyre mature enough to travel around the neighborhood on their own. Costumes should fit well so as not to pose a tripping hazard, and the clothing should be bright enough that persons driving in the area would be able to easily spot the child. Any candy that looks like it has been previously opened should be tossed in the garbage rather than consumed.
2. Handing Out Candy- While most people wouldnt think that theyre leaving themselves open to a lawsuit by the mere act of giving candy to children, some precautions must be taken. Children should have a clear, well-lit path to the door, with decorations placed far enough away that they wont impede a pedestrians progress. This is especially important when one has jack olanterns or lit candles on the property, as these items could set a stray piece of fabric ablaze.
3. Traveling To Halloween Parties- When driving to a Halloween party, make sure to reduce your speed accordingly given the heightened number of pedestrians that are going to be on the road. Be ready to hit the brakes whenever children are present. Drivers must refrain from alcohol consumption yet still remain cognizant of the fact that fellow travelers may not have been as responsible with their alcohol intake.
4. Halloween Parties- Such events tend to be rowdy affairs, and its important that adults be responsible enough to know when theyve had enough. Anyone who looks inebriated needs to have their keys taken away, and revelers should make transportation plans or secure accommodations before the party so they do not pose a danger to themselves and others.
5. Haunted Houses- Many people elect to spend Halloween traveling to one of the many haunted houses around the Washington area. There is a kind of contract that goes with these properties: the haunted house characters dont touch visitors and visitors dont touch them. If someone gets violent, the best course of action is to contact the police.
6. Hay Rides – Make sure footing is secure when embarking and disembarking, and never attempt to jump away while the vehicle is in motion.
7. Bonfires- Respect laws related to lighting fires, only igniting a pile of kindling in designated areas. Keep children away from the flames and limit alcohol intake at such events.
8. A Note to Teens- It is easy to get rowdy on Halloween, but while egging houses and engaging in property destruction may seem like harmless fun, such activities can actually get people hurt. Cruising on Halloween, in itself, is dangerous given the amount of pedestrian traffic. There are far more responsible ways to spend the holiday.

The Bernard Law Group provides legal representation for those injured in bicycle collisions, workplace accidents, medical malpractice situations, defective drug incidents, premises liability cases, and more.

There are more than 21 million veterans currently living in the United States. Former members of a military branch may qualify for benefits like disability, education, pension, and survivor benefits that are available through the Department of Veterans Affairs. These benefits are especially important to veterans who were injured in combat. In many cases, they suffer disabling conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder, Gulf War syndrome, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), or exposure to toxic substances. In order to receive coverage, a disabled veteran must prove that they are a veteran or active service member with an impending discharge, they suffered a disease or injury during service, they are currently diagnosed with a disease or injury, and there a relationship between the disease or injury and service in the military.
Veterans who have been denied benefits or who believe that they have received a low disability rating should talk to a personal injury lawyer. An experienced lawyer can help you appeal the decision to deny or limit your benefits. According to an October 3, 2013 article by USA Today, the federal government shutdown has slowed down the already backlogged appeals process. The Department of Veterans Affairs stated that it has enough money to process claims through late October. The good news is that medical care has been exempted. However, many other services offered by the VA, like call centers, have been suspended. Additionally, employees are no longer allowed to work overtime in order to process claims. The article reported that there 725,469 claims pending and that more than 50% of these claims have been pending for more than 125 days (ii). The appeals process can be challenging but a skilled lawyer will be able to help compile the necessary documentation of your disability and increase your chances of success.
The VA benefits infographic lists common military injuries and provides the qualifications for disability benefits. dOliveira & Associates has been practicing injury and disability law in Southeastern New England for more than 24 years. The law firm works with some of the more experienced veterans benefits lawyers, who handle these cases, and there is no legal fee your appeal is successful.
