Retail Injury Claim: What To Do And What Not To Do

Accidents at retail outlets are more common than they might apparently seem at first. The most common types of injuries sustained at these places are slips, trips, and falls. The sufferers might be both customers and workers. Thankfully both are protected by law in case of any such accidents. This is because it is the legal responsibility of the shop owner to provide a safe shopping as well as working environment. When this is not followed and accidents happen because of a negligence on the part of the shop owner, the injured person may be entitled to a retail injury claim compensation.

Who is Responsible for Product Defects?

Products liability represents a class of personal injuries. Specifically, these types of cases involve a person who is injured because of a defective product. An element associated with products liability cases, and associated personal injuries, is determining who bears responsibility for compensating the injured individuals. Spencer Farris, personal injury lawyer in Missouri, explains what and who is responsible for defective product cases. 

Manufacturer's Liability 

Commonly, the manufacturer of a defective product is financially responsible for injuries sustained to an individual because of the product's flaw. The liability or responsibility of the manufacturer for compensating an injured person typically arises for one of two possible reasons. (In some cases, both of these underlying factors are found to exist.)

A milestone in retirement planning - Obama offers MyRA to the 401(k) deprived

Three decades of disappearing pensions, stagnant middle-class incomes, restrained ability to initiate and maintain personal savings and the flop 401(k) experiment lay the bedrock for a retirement crisis that threatened millions of American seniors and their families. The American seniors have been repeatedly told to bear the expense of the fiscal failures that have already left them facing a questionable and depleted retirement. The latest Congressional budget deal in Washington aims the senior retirees with $12 billion in pension changes, including trimming down pensions for military people who give up their jobs in 2015 and requiring the new government workers to donate more to their retirement accounts. As per the New School for Social Research, 75% of Americans who are on the verge of retirement have less than $30,000 in their retirement accounts. The NIRS or the National Institute for Retirement Security reports that 4 out of 5 working households have retirement funds less than one times their annual income and 45% of the senior population don’t have any retirement assets at all.

FATCA remains unscathed even after vote of repeal by the Republicans

According to reports by a senior Treasury Official on Wednesday, the 22nd of January, 2014, the opposition of the Republican Party to a new law (FATCA), meant to combat offshore tax dodging by the Americans will not hinder or obstruct the efforts of the Obama administration to implement it worldwide. With the huge outrage over the political spectrum of the nation over the controversial new addition to the US tax regime called the FATCA or the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, the RNC (Republican National Committee) voted largely to adopt and implement a resolution calling for a re-appeal. This strongly worded GOP measure has already generated immense support among the middle-class Americans who stay abroad and this, according to the analysts, represents simply the beginning of the aggravating campaign to stop FATCA and this reaction is being deemed to be one of the devastating consequences.
