An Important Job Being Done by a Lawyer in a Personal Injury Case

Personal injury cases are supposed to be built on a triangle of three important participants. These participants are supposed to be the claimant, the accused or the guilty party and a specialist and professional lawyer. Lawyers have a very vital role that is to be played in order to assist the deliverance of justice to the deserving ones. In this modern world of ours, where there is vast sea of information related to every aspect of life, there are those individuals also who try to deal the negotiations with the third party insurers on their own with out the assistance and guidance of specialist lawyer. Mostly such petitioners have to suffer consequently.

This is supposed to be the duty of a professional lawyer to satisfy the claimant who hires his services and this satisfaction can only be granted through the medium of a successful injury claim. Law cases are being associated with a lot of legalities and intricacies. These personal injury claims are also involve a set of intricate legal proceedings which only a lawyer can understand in the most apt manner.

There are a lot of such factors related to these procedures that a common man can not be able to decode them. This is the reason, it is always advised whether the claimant wants to go for settlement or for the legal proceedings, he should hire the services of a professionally skilled lawyer.

And an important thing to be kept in mind is the selection of a lawyer. You as a claimant are not supposed to get in touch with just any lawyer. Rather you are expected to appoint that lawyer who you know is the specialist one who practices in the field of personal injury claim cases. A bit of research is needed to be done beforehand so that a skilled and expert lawyer should be hired who will be able to guide you and lead the case in the best possible manner.

There are different types of injury claims and there are different types of lawyers as well who are practicing in the specific branches of injury cases like road accidents, professional malpractices, workplace injuries etc. The victim of a particular type of accident is highly recommended to consult that skilled lawyer dealing in that specific genre of personal injury compensation claims.

The lawyer not only lifts up the whole burden off the claimant’s shoulders but the expertise of that lawyer help a lot in winning the desired amount of the claim as well.

Porn and the Christian Woman

When you think of the word “pornography,” does it conjure up the image of a scruffy guy with messy hair in the basement watching porn in his underpants?

Truth is, though I get lots of requests for prayer and counsel from men who are slaves to porn, I recently had an encounter with a pretty young woman who was struggling with that same addiction.

I was already aware this problem existed among the gentler sex. I was awakened to that fact while listening to a Christian radio program on the subject many years ago and was amazed that half the callers were female teens. I’ll always remember the young girl who called crying because she felt powerless to resist the lure. A Christian girl, attending her Youth Group, the kids at school started passing around a website address. Desiring to fit in, she logged on. She was hooked. Not only was she hooked but she tearfully admitted she was confused about her sexuality, having found herself aroused by lesbian photos as well as the straight stuff.

My heart ached for her. Still does.

We are sexual beings. Just look at yourself nude in a mirror. Everything about our anatomy screams reproduction. Without the God-given urges we feel, there’s no other way would have ever procreated the species. Sex was God’s idea (and a great one at that). Leave it to Satan to pervert those desires and turn something beautiful into something so vile and harmful.

I found some 2003 statistics on pornography and its impact on society. I’m sure they’re worse now, 5 years later. Brace yourself:

Of the adults admitting to Internet sexual addiction: 10%; 28% of those are women (internet-filter-review.com).

This one impacts women more than we can imagine: More than 70% of men from 18 to 34 visit a pornographic site in a typical month (comScore Media Metrix).

Our young men, even the Christian guys, are being fed a steady diet of nudity and sexually-related lies. In real life, women don’t look or act like that.

But perception is reality.

Our girls simply cannot compete.

I was doing premarital counseling with a couple when, on our last night before the wedding, I gave them the opportunity to talk about anything they wanted to get out in the open. Sure enough, the young lady bashfully admitted her fear of disappointing her husband when he saw her body in comparison to all the others he’d been exposed to all his life, if only just at store check-out counters and magazine racks.

Girls, don’t be deceived. There are many wolves in sheep’s clothing. Outwardly, they may show all the signs of being “good.” Inwardly, well…they’re a mess. You have every right to get to know his internet viewing habits and see the magazines he subscribes to. Don’t be so quick to give your heart away and invite problems later. As a former Singles Pastor, my word of advice was always, “Become what you want to marry.” It’s the reaping and sowing factor.

Where porn’s impact on marriage is concerned, at a 2003 meeting of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, two thirds of the 350 divorce lawyers who attended said the Internet played a significant role in the divorces in the past year, with excessive interest in online porn contributing to more than half such cases. Pornography had an almost non-existent role in divorce just seven or eight years ago.” (Divorcewizards.com)

STATISTICS ON WOMEN WITH PORNOGRAPHY ADDICTION

28% those admitting to sexual addiction are women (internet-filter-review.com).

That was five years ago.

34% of female readers of Today’s Christian Woman’s online newsletter admitted to intentionally accessing Internet porn in a recent poll and 1 out of every 6 women, including Christians, struggles with an addiction to pornography (Today’s Christian Woman, Fall 2003). There is much deliverance required and, sadly, too few who even know what that means to minister in that way.

The impact on families and marriages is devastating, affecting women in yet another negative way as their desire to e married and raise children in a healthy, happy home are dashed. 47% percent of families said pornography is a problem in their home (Focus on the Family Poll, October 1, 2003). Add that to drug and alcohol problems, teen rebellion, overeating, domestic violence, workaholism, and everything else that goes wrong behind closed doors.

CHRISTIANS, PASTORS AND CHURCH PORNOGRAPHY STATISTICS

I hear of far too many instances of clergymen having affairs with female Members of their flock. It’s no wonder. 51% of pastors say cyber-porn is a possible temptation. 37% say it is a current struggle (Christianity Today, Leadership Survey, 12/2001). In fact, over half of evangelical pastors admit viewing pornography last year.

Roger Charman of Focus on the Family’s Pastoral Ministries reports that approximately 20 percent of the calls received on their Pastoral Care Line are for help with issues such as pornography and compulsive sexual behavior.

In a 2000 Christianity Today survey, 33% of clergy admitted to having visited a sexually explicit Web site. Of those who had visited a porn site, 53% had visited such sites “a few times” in the past year, and 18% visit sexually explicit sites between a couple of times a month and more than once a week. These are our Church leaders. When a woman with a problem visits a man with the same problem, looking for spiritual assistance, what else can we expect? Like spirits attract, after all.

The sheep are fairing no better than the shepherds with 29% of born again adults in the U.S. feel it is morally acceptable to view movies with explicit sexual behavior (The Barna Group).

57% of pastors say that addiction to pornography is the most sexually damaging issue to their congregation (Christians and Sex Leadership Journal Survey, March 2005).

SEEKING COMFORT IN AN UNCOMFORTABLE WORLD

We are aliens on this planet. We’re not from around here and, therefore, should give up on our attempts at getting comfortable. Such attempts are futile. Nevertheless, because the cycle of emotional pain among women – even the Christian variety – has been going on for so long, our ladies are running to things like Valium, extramarital and premarital affairs, romance novels, soap operas, porn and, yes, even religion, in search of comfort. Some may even embrace timidity, manliness, or what’s referred to as a “Jezebel” spirit. They’re doing that INSTEAD of running to the God of all comfort; the loving Father who wants nothing more than to kiss them and make things better. They need ministry but too few ministers are equipped to minister in the required manner.

Why wouldn’t a Christian run to her Christ and, instead, run into the arms of another lover like porn? The answer is obvious: She doesn’t know Him. Like a man with homosexual tendencies, throwing himself into Christian service in hopes of cleansing himself and “getting better,” many woman expect that sitting in a pew each time the door is opened and attending conferences, even reading Christian books, will all make their problem go away.

It won’t.

Only Jesus has the power to do that. Only He is our Deliverer. Freedom will come when the foul Spirit of Porn bows to His Name and no other.

I’ve read that the early Church would minister exorcisms to new converts before baptizing and introducing to the Christian community. Great idea!

Here are some promises from Scripture that I hope will encourage you. I followed this with a prayer you may want to print and stick by your bathroom mirror. Remember this: God isn’t mad at you. Stop feeling so guilt-ridden and sin-conscious and focus on your relationship with the Redeemer. Jesus suffered for the sins of the world, including YOURS. There’s no judgment remaining, no wrath of God forthcoming, no punishment. The debt has been paid and God is satisfied. Between Calvary, which was judgment on Christ, and the Judgment Day, when all the books will be opened, there is no place for judgment in this world. Yet, most Christians cannot seem to overcome that sin consciousness that oppresses and suppresses them. The price has been paid! You’ve already been reconciled to God! When He sees you, He sees Jesus! You couldn’t be good enough and you’re not bad enough to lose your place with Him. This goodness of God is what will bring you to repentance. Don’t expect that from church services or Christian books.
Start down your road to recovery TODAY!

Psalm 10:17

Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them.

Psalm 23:4

Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid,for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.

Psalm 119:76

Now let your unfailing love comfort me, just as you promised me, your servant.

2 Corinthians 1:4

He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.

Thank you, Lord, for being my Comforter. I’ve been crying out to be comforted since the moment I was born. Now, I feel that I need your comfort – the only REAL comfort that exists – more than ever. I’m tired of trying to overcome and I’m running to YOU – the One who dwells within me who cannot do anything BUT overcome. Be the Lord of my life; the Owner of my sinful nature, my bad habits, my addictions. Thank you for comforting me, Lord Jesus, so that I, in turn, will be better equipped to comfort others who are also struggling with bondages. I thank you, also, for healing me where I’ve been hurt. Not just physically but deep down in those darkest places that no one can see but you. Thank you for giving me the grace to forgive those who hurt me; they knew not what they were doing to me. I believe you are the One who can Deliver me; increase my unbelief that the things I struggle with are even real. Help me to un-believe MORE that I am trapped, that I am a victim, that I am a second-rate Christian. Help me to believe more strongly than ever that I am who YOU say I am…redeemed, delivered, healed, the enemy’s worst nightmare, part of a Kingdom of Priests and Kings. Thank you, Father. I love you and I pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus, the Name above every name. Amen!

Every blessing,

Government Contracts Law Firm – Helping Understand Complexity

When looking at government contracts law firm options for your business needs, you’ll want to look into a variety of things to ensure that you’re hiring the best. Some firms only work on one aspect of government contracting and leave the consumer out in the cold when it comes to others. It’s important to have services that place you as a priority and not just a case number that gets little to no attention. Don’t get lost amidst a large firm that only cares about the bottom line, make sure that you seek out a company that has a long standing reputation of helping people with their contract translation needs. Consider the following 3 things you should look for in a high quality firm.

Client Benefits – The first thing to look for is client benefits that are in line with what you and your business needs. You’ll want to make sure that these services are outlined and clear before you invest any money in hiring them. If you don’t spend the proper time analyzing the benefits that you will receive, you might end up with a firm that is not necessarily a good one for what you require. Make sure that you get flexible sites, and attorneys and consultants work as team members with your business as well as have a clear understanding of the type of business you’re involved with.

Variety of Industry Knowledge – There are a lot of industries that get government contracts, and many of them aren’t what you think. Among the top industries that are contracted out, some of them have very strict contractual obligations that go beyond wages and deliverables. When it comes to explaining these clauses, it’s important for a business to fully be explained the issues before signing any documents or moving forward. This is where a government contracts law firm can really shine, with having lawyers in every industry type and having a full grasp of how contract rhetoric is formulated and implemented within any style of business.

Litigation and Appeals – This is something that most people don’t look for until something goes awry with their contract. Whether there’s a breech or a disagreement on the final costs versus price paid, it’s important to have someone that will fight for your case. When there is an issue that comes up, get a firm that knows what to do to make sure you get everything that is coming to you in terms of compensation.

The above 3 things to look for in a law firm are just a sampling of the things you’ll need to move forward. Without the above, the company you’re looking at will not be worth your hard earned money.
