Suffering from a personal injury accident can be devastating not only to the individual injured, but also to the individual’s family members and friends. Our firm often receives inquiries from individuals concerning potential lawsuits against a public entity. Many people are surprised to learn that an individual can seek recovery from a government entity for injuries directly related to their tortuous actions. Unlike personal injury claims against private individuals and entities, the New Jersey Tort’s Claims Act sets forth guidelines in which a plaintiff may recover for the tortuous actions of public entities and public employees.
Many people file for bankruptcy to protect their real property from being foreclosed on.

Irrespective of the size of your business, companies should have an employee handbook or manual. Employee handbooks can provide certainty and structure to your operations as well as place your employees on notice as to what you expect from them. Employee handbooks do not have to manage every aspect of your business. In fact, companies should avoid including within a handbook details regarding its operations that are subject to frequent change or policies and procedures the company will not enforce. At the same time, companies should not attempt to use form handbooks; one size does not always fit all.
