Understanding a personal injury lawsuit timeline can help a victim cope with the stress and emotional challenges that may arise with the processing of his case. Though the time and process may be different in some states, on the average, the process is complicated and time-consuming.

Unfortunately, a high percentage of Americans are unaware of the workings of the judicial proceedings both for civil and criminal cases. Because of this, it is extremely important that auto accident attorneys, for example, communicate the personal injury claim process to their clients before filing.

Regrettably, some lawyers fail to give clients the right information and instead promise to expedite action on the case to impress the victim to hire them. This practice is wrong and against legal ethics.

It is your right as a person who has a personal injury claim to know every step of the lawsuit. The right knowledge will help you prepare for any outcome since most personal injury cases are unpredictable.

This article will walk you through a step-by-step approach to understanding the personal injury lawsuit timeline so you’d know what to expect.

Seek Medical Attention

Immediately following an accident, it is paramount for the victim to seek medical care in order to minimize the severity of injuries. Whether it is a ‘slip and fall’ or ‘car accident,’ a hospital visit is necessary.

This single action will give you an edge if your insurance company tries to prove that there was no injury at all. Secondly, an immediate hospital visit will prove a point to the jury that you were hurt.

Talk To A Lawyer

lawyer consultation

It is important to consult a lawyer if you suffer significant injury or other losses in an accident. If you are afraid of the cost, then take advantage of law firms who offer free consultations and discuss the situation with them.

It is necessary that you take this step because a lawyer can give you the right advice and help. He’ll guide you on how you can get a better settlement than the insurance companies initially offer.

Commencement Of Investigations

The investigation of the claims and medical records will start immediately once the lawyer agrees that your claims are worth filing in the law court. You can justify this by answering relevant questions from the solicitor and giving him access to your medical records.

Most importantly, you need to give out all pertinent information and be honest about the accident and your medical condition to avoid surprises in the courtroom.

Attorney Files An Insurance Claim

Most personal injury cases get settled out of court. However, it will still depend on the level of damage or loss suffered by the victim. Slip and fall accidents are mostly settled out of court. Auto accidents, on the other hand, are most likely resolved through the court process. An experienced attorney may get a reasonable settlement for his client from the insurance company.

In the case of a car accident, the lawyer should first submit the claims to the at-fault driver’s insurance company. After that, the claim will be investigated and compensation will be paid.

If the accident results in permanent disability, the lawyer will activate the Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI) aspect of the law. This will help the victim get a resounding victory and much higher settlement in the case.

The Attorney Files A Lawsuit

Filing a lawsuit comes into play when the insurance company does not settle claims out of court, and your attorney sees no other option than to file a lawsuit.

The preliminary timeline for filing a personal injury lawsuit is as follows:

  • Serving appropriate documents to the defendant should take from 30 to 60 days.
  • The stipulated time for a response from the defendant, meanwhile, is within 30 days. In some cases, they may ask for additional days.

The parties will then exchange information related to the accident and this will involve complaints and counterclaims

Discovery

This stage of the legal process is meant to dislodge surprises that may arise during the main court sessions. At this juncture, each party (the plaintiff and the defendant) investigates one another using the documents and evidence submitted.

It has two major processes: interrogations and depositions. The first one requires parties to provide documents which will be useful during the court sessions. The latter, meanwhile, involves questions and answers from any witnesses.

The Mediation Stage

Following disclosure of the interrogations and depositions, attorneys may agree on certain terms. This can potentially lead to a peaceful settlement which is why this stage is also called as the ‘alternative dispute resolution’ stage.

Trial

personal injury trial

This is the last stage of the personal injury lawsuit timeline. All the parties must be present in court for the jury to go through the documents and interrogate the witnesses. The length of such cases can last for weeks or months.

The Millennials’ Mania Over Social Media

In 2017, millennials’ inclination to technology is expected to slowly reshape the digital landscape. The way they take back steps to evaluate their social media use, which platforms they should use, and what content they want to have access to can greatly affect the way social media works.

The Millennials’ Take on Facebook

facebook

Facebook started out as a social platform for college students. It quickly expanded and became accessible even to the older people. Despite the expansion, millennials continue to be the biggest force in there.

According to a recent survey, 41% of millennials still use Facebook every day. However, a big part of this number also favors Instagram, Youtube, Pinterest and Twitter, just to name a few. One reason for this shift is that millennials are no longer happy using Facebook. Comparison of feeds and activities are no longer exciting for them.

But, despite the statistics, the universality of Facebook still stands out. Millennials who are still using Facebook say that looking for good and interesting articles is one of the reasons why they keep using the platform.

Younger Millennials Favor Disappearing Media

Older millennials have become accustomed to the idea that once something is posted on the internet, it is there to stay forever. And we’re okay with that, even as new technologies claim to make this notion moot.

But, for most younger millennials, the hype of disappearing digital content is just too tempting to ignore. They like the idea that intimate thoughts, daring pictures, and incomprehensible ramblings could disappear forever.

As much as technology and the users are constantly evolving, so is our reasoning on what we should post. A recent study conducted by Fluent found that millennials are using social media apps, like Snapchat, because they allow them to post contents that will eventually disappear.

While most older millennials understand the attraction, some of us roll our eyes while watching our younger brothers and sisters immaturely use Snapchat and Instagram.

World of Live Videos and Filters

instagram photos

The capabilities to share videos in real-time on almost every social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and Youtube is overwhelming. You won’t find any shortage of these videos.

A study conducted by Animoto suggests that almost 80% of millennials refer to videos before making a purchase decision while 76% of them follow brands or companies streamlining in Youtube.

Edited, produced and posted video contents are continuously capturing the attention of online users in a world of photos with filters, 6-second Snapchats and 140-character feeds. Through live streaming, everyone can contribute to the already populated daily uploads on different social media sites.

Last year’s buzz with Pokémon Go foreshadowed the widespread attraction millennials have toward augmented reality (AR).

It’s entirely possible that Facebook, attempting to remain relevant, will become a major leader in the AR scene. Live video, AR lenses, and filters are likely to be the biggest trends in 2017.

Technology Makes Life Easier

The everyday life of millennials has become completely dependent on technology and there’s no doubt about that. They are no longer asking for ample technology resources at work, they expect it. It some cases, it’s even viewed as an entitlement.

The bottom line is that millennials continue to seek ways to make their everyday activities more automated and easier. To make their goals happen, they continuously look for the newest trends available in the market.

In fact, they couldn’t care less that we’re speaking to machines, unless, of course, the interaction goes wrong. The more technologically advanced, the better. Gone were the days where we need to do everything manually. It’s all about comfort and seamlessness right now.

Takeaway

It might be hard to accept that millennials take social media seriously, but, yes, they do. It has become a part of their culture.

We can no longer impose on this generation the traditional living standards that we used to grow up with. We just have to accept it as it is.

The Tell-Tale Signs You May Have Alcoholism

Am I an alcoholic?

A lot of people think of an alcoholic as someone who’s homeless and lives in the park or panhandles on the street corner. In reality, however, not all alcoholics are homeless. Most of them live well in their own homes and have well-paying jobs.

Most people who suffer from alcoholism don’t even know they’re alcoholic.

For example, if a guy comes home from work every day and has one to three beers, he’s likely to argue that he’s not alcoholic. A college student who drinks for fun might likely say the same thing.

Most people consider alcoholism as suffering consequences from the drinking. However, in my opinion, I would say that it’s not always the case.

To know if you have this issue, try to answer the following questions:

  1. If you have a beer every night after work and don’t have one for 1-3 days, how do you react?
  2. Remember the last time you drank. Do you remember what happened?
  3. If you only drink at parties, do you get comments on how belligerent or obnoxious you were being?
  4. Have you woken up the following day of your drinking and realized you don’t know where you are?

These questions are just some of the basic questions that can help you determine if you’re an alcoholic or not. Answering them can either give you a definite answer or urge you to think deeper about the underlying issues.

Take note that there are many classifications of alcoholism.

What are the signs and symptoms of alcoholism?

• Hiding your drinking or drinking alone is a very common sign that you’re an alcoholic or beginning to have a problem. If you find yourself sleeping with a bottle or having to disguise vodka in your cup to function properly at work, you may be an alcoholic.

drinking alone • Having trouble with memory loss is a big part of what they call “black out drinking.” Many who’ve suffered consequences like vehicular homicide and other legal discord have stated that they don’t remember a thing after the incident.

• Feeling guilty about drinking is also a big part of suffering from alcoholism. You most likely already know your drinking is becoming an issue, yet you drink anyway.

• You get flashbacks while you’re sober or having recaps of embarrassing incidents you experienced while drunk.

• Gastro Intestinal problems are also a clear-cut sign you’re drinking too much. Many who are alcoholic don’t eat properly. This results in alcohol tearing away at the stomach lining until ulcers or some other GI problem develops.

• Lying about your drinking is always a telltale sign of a drinking problem. Many who realize that their drinking has become a problem will hide it from their loved ones due to guilt.

• Suffering consequences from your drinking is also a sign that your drinking is spiraling out of control. Some of the consequences could be losing a job, getting in legal trouble, losing a spouse or a loved one or waking up in strange places.

• Trying to quit drinking but can’t or trying to quit or stop completely without success is one of the bigger signs of alcoholism. Many who realize that they may have a drinking problem frequently say “I will never drink again!” only to find themselves drunk within a few days.

• Feeling withdrawal symptoms from alcohol are clear cut signs of alcoholism. Getting the shakes, clammy hands, and/or obsessing over getting the next drink is clear evidence of alcoholism.

Is there a solution to the problem or can I eventually go back to drinking?

signs of alcoholism

Well, that is your choice.

However, everyone has a different reaction to alcoholism. In most cases, however, the only answer is complete abstinence.

A lot of alcoholics who are experiencing withdrawal symptoms realize that they just want to stop, but can’t. Many find a solution in self-help groups, 12-step fellowships, and other treatment programs.

Even if others see you as an alcoholic, you won’t be able to help yourself if you haven’t realized the problem yet. You are just bound to repeat the process over and over again.

Once you recognize that there’s a problem, your next step is to find a solution to solve it. Only you will know when enough is enough. Although many people wait till they lose everything before they act, I don’t really advise that.

Some people would tell you that in order to break the monotony of your life, you will have to give up on your routine. They say that variety is the opposite of routine and in some ways, that’s true.

But, just like everything in life, you need a healthy balance of both in order to get the most out of them. It’s like yin and yang, good and evil, and black and white. Neither should dominate your existence.

A life without routine can and will get chaotic. Life on its own is already a chaotic mess.

Because of this, we need a sense of direction to keep ourselves from going overboard. Routine is what we use to keep everything organized.

We set an alarm not to purposely disrupt our good night’s sleep, but to make sure we wake up on time. We go to work not because we want to slave our lives away, but because we want to feel fulfilled. Plus, it helps that it gives us money to pay the bills.

Without routine, we could find ourselves lost and unmotivated. Unpleasant as it may seem, it’s actually something we need in order to survive.

Unfortunately, all work and no play will make you a very dull person. You may also find yourself very unhappy.

So, today we are going to discuss four easy ways to inject just a little variety into your life. You don’t have to give up on routine, but you don’t always have to stick with it.

There are a few changes you can make here and there to keep you inspired and keep you going when life is just too boring. Here are some interesting things to do to add spice to your life.

Update Your Wardrobe

wardrobe update

It’s time to pass on those hand-me-downs (to the next person, probably).

When we say “update your wardrobe,” that’s just a simple way of saying give yourself an upgrade. You don’t have to be vain just to love yourself.

Sometimes, taking care of your body is the best way to cleanse your mind and calm your spirit. We often feel like we’re dragging ourselves through the mud, and the reason is because we are letting ourselves go. When you’re feeling down for no reason, perhaps it’s time to take a look at yourself and see what’s going on.

Go buy yourself new shoes. Your old ones may have already been worn out. Go to the mall and get yourself new office clothes, casual wear, and even accessories. You don’t need any reason to try and look better.

And while you’re at it, make more changes in yourself. It could be something as small as changing your style or something as big as readjusting your life goals.

Maybe you’re getting so bored with your routine because you no longer believe in the goals you are chasing. It’s okay to switch plans if you are no longer happy. Make small steps toward your new goals, and you will get acquainted with the new rhythm.

Listen to Different Music

Yes, you feel nostalgic when you listen to your old tunes. But, has it occurred to you that you’re getting bored and monotonous because you haven’t introduced a new song to your playlist?

Trust me, one new song can change your mood, especially if you like it a lot.

You can try out a new genre if your old ones aren’t appealing to you anymore. You can delete those songs you always skip if you don’t have enough space on your phone.

Aside from that, you can start introducing other new things into your life. Learn a new skill, play a different game, or try out a new hobby. If you’re feeling pumped up for some change, try something new every week!

Go visit the neighbors

visit the neighbors

Here, we don’t just mean your literal neighbors who live across or beside your home. You can visit neighboring countries during your vacation or just visit a neighboring town you’ve never been to. The world is a large place, and there’s always somewhere to go and something to do.

You don’t have to travel every day. You can do it when you have the time and money. Keep in mind that every single adventure is a life-changing experience that can alter your perspective regarding the world around you.

You might even meet new people and friends which can widen your circle!
Don’t limit yourself to your immediate surroundings. And, if this proves a bit too challenging, just go visit your literal neighbors if you think it’s a good idea to do so.

Push Yourself to the Limit

Sometimes, the best way to confront routine is to push it around, alter it, and show it who’s the boss. You made the routine, you can change it any way you like. If that’s not plausible, you can at least switch things up or make things more challenging.

If your work is boring you, maybe you should try to beat your deadlines by more than a week. If your day-to-day cycle is too much of a drag, mix things up just for the heck of it.

And, if you think things are getting a little too easy, make things more difficult! Your brain loves familiarity, but it hates monotony. Do yourself a favor and live life a little more spontaneously. You don’t need to go overboard with it—just remember the balance of routine and variety.

You probably feel guilty, irresponsible, and unproductive when you catch yourself daydreaming during an important task. In the words of Harvard psychologist Matthew Killingsworth and his colleagues: “A wandering mind is an unhappy mind.”

On the surface, the source of this guilt and despair seems obvious. Daydreaming implies you are procrastinating — and nobody likes to waste time or be off-task. Yet, if you look more deeply at the reasons for this guilt, the scene becomes much more complex.

For example, when our minds wander, we feel freer. As philosopher Søren Kierkegaard pointed out, freedom may seem appealing, but it also causes anxiety. This anxiety makes us feel dizzy as if we are without “gravity” when our minds are adrift.

Psychology researcher Jerome Singer confirmed that this type of guilty daydreaming is no good for us. Yet, as he also pointed out, daydreaming can be spectacularly great — but only if we do it the right way.

Daydreaming The Right Way

In my book, “Tinker, Dabble, Doodle, Try,” I explained in detail how daydreaming can lead to glorious outcomes with a few tweaks.

tinker dabble double try

What you want to aim for is called positive constructive daydreaming (PCD) — also known as “daydreaming that rocks!” These sessions of unfocusing can be spontaneous or planned, and they will ultimately make you feel more self-aware, more creative, and far less bored.

When you engage in PCD, you give your focused attention a break and allow yourself to plan and rehearse what’s to come. In other words, if you allow yourself to constructively daydream, you are likely to realize things about the future that you would miss otherwise.

Let your mind wander on a leash; it will lead you to the jewels of self-awareness and illuminate missing information hidden in your brain. When you find these clues, you can connect the dots of your past and present to construct a more accurate prediction of the future.

How to Engage in PCD

PCD is drastically different from the guilty daydreams you suddenly slip into, like the ones about last night’s shenanigans instead of tomorrow’s big meeting. Here are four steps to help you master daydreaming psychology.

Start by planning

daydreaming planning

Planning a daydream may sound counterintuitive. Just think of it as taking the time to plan a skydive rather than spontaneously jumping out of an airplane.

When you consciously set aside time to daydream, you avoid the shock and dismay of unexpected mind-wandering.

Turn your attention inward

You spend most of the day engaging the world with your senses, which means the majority of what you learn comes from the outside.

Daydreaming is all about closing the door on perception and turning your attention inward. Closing your eyes may help you get disconnected faster.

At first, it may feel like your mind is simply going on a wild goose chase. But, studies show that this is simply your brain’s planning mechanisms just under the radar. If you find it difficult to turn inward at will, try marking the switch with a relaxing chair tilt or a much-needed walk to the window.

attention inward

Do something low-key

You may think of daydreaming as total downtime, but a recent study claimed otherwise. Daydreaming actually has the potential to improve your creative ability.

Doing nothing at all or something that takes up too much attention will be less effective, so try knitting, gardening, coloring, or light-hearted doodling while you daydream to get your creative brain charged.

Overcome the vomit response

Social psychologist Jennifer Mueller and her colleagues found that although we laud the attributes of a creative mind, we are actually predisposed to hate our own creativity. This goes particularly true during times of uncertainty.

Our brains, without overt warning, associate the word “creativity” with “vomit” and “agony.” Someone else being creative may feel like music to your ears, but once you start to become creative yourself, the music metaphorically becomes haunting and disturbing.

It’s crucial to acknowledge the fact that creativity will cause your stomach to churn. When you find yourself feeling queasy, recognize why you feel this way and keep on truckin’.

The Lowdown

So, what’s the earth-shattering lowdown here?

• Daydreaming can improve your focus, creativity, and self-awareness. It can also help you envision and prepare for the future.
• Set aside a time in your day to veg out.
• Turn your attention inward by switching off your perceptions. Close your eyes to get a quick start.
• Do something low-key or don’t do anything.
• Beware of your brain’s tendency to resist, and use self-talk to tell it to chill. Sit back, relax, and daydream yourself to success.

Time has been the biggest witness of the evolution of men’s fashion. Every period, both wearers and designers experienced immense changes that led the industry to what it is today.

men's fashion

In this article, we made sure no era has been overlooked. We’ve listed down the time frames and the respective fashion must-haves that made men look stylish for each period.

Late 1800s

Also known as the Victorian age, you’d find men wearing frock coats with pocket watches, long chains, and walking sticks during this period.

frock coats

These things were considered as a gentlemen thing. With the 19th century coming to an end, the Georgian age followed where you would find men getting a hang of pantyhose, high heels and more.

1900s

Fit didn’t matter a lot during this time. What mattered were athletic silhouettes and 3-piece suits that included a sack coat, identical waistcoat, and ill fit trousers.

1900s fashion

Although there was no hard rule when it comes to matching, there were common trends during this period.

Generally, when the waistcoat matched the coat, the trousers were the ones with the contrasting shade. There were times when the trouser and coat matched and the waistcoat stood with a different color.

1940s

This was the time when the World War had come to an end. During this period, the classic rules of luxury dressing faded, too. One probable reason was that the war had taken a lot of workforces that the ones left were too tired to give importance to formal wear.

1940s fashion

For the same reason, America saw an upsurge of brands that offered ready-to-wear clothing articles which needed no alterations and changes. The good thing about this period was that clothing became highly accessible at inexpensive prices. The variety, however, had gone down the drain.

1950s- 1960s

Often called as the Age of Conformity, the late 1950s saw the return of form-fitting clothes. When things started to settle down after the war, the then-designers focused on providing fitted suits to men for the formal wear.

age of conformity

For example, Ralph Lauren Polo & Tees were born in this decade. It came along with the other brands that still are luxury labels providing fashion solution even today.

During the 1960s, the younger generation leaned towards unconventional styles which were used for self-expression. Elders who desired to look more appealing and younger than their age looked up to the younger generations of this period.

1980s

Ever wondered where the term Power Dressing came from?

power dressing

This was the decade where men invested in clothing articles that showed off their authority in the industry. This included trousers with suspenders and bold accessories that called for power and attention. Brands like Burberry and Hublot were established in this era.

2010s

It was in the 2010s that men’s fashion became widely available online. Although online shopping had started earlier, it was during this period that major luxury labels began to set up their online stores to help more men with fashion issues across the world.

It this period, men can easily find form-fitted suits, crisp shirts, and versatile trousers as well as statement accessories. Everything is available online with slashed down prices.

The evolution of men’s fashion might look like a roller coaster ride to you all, but every decade had its own sunshine and rains. If they didn’t experience what they did, you all wouldn’t have these options placed in front of you today.
