    Great article! I for one agree that personal injury law firms who advertise (brand) in hospitals are brilliant, and despite any opposing arguments, the benefits definitely outweigh negative effects, if any. Firstly, from a marketing perspective, advertising to a specific target market in the market itself clearly attracts the most clients, creating the highest revenue for these firms. Secondly, the financial contributions these firms provide to health care institutions, in exchange for advertising, greatly contribute towards medical research, hospital upgrades, and overall better machinery/equipment, which in turn all bennefit patients. Thirdly, if medical staff are aware of these firms, it may help to eliminate mistreatment and malpractice. I believe most people would agree that is it much wiser to invest advertising in hospitals where the financial contributions benefit the whole, as opposed to advertising during a television commercial where the financial contributions go towards two minutes of air time.

    Planetresource.net has a Eco friendly solution to clean up the tragedy British Petroleum has created, please watch the video animation:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60bdQQQ3iVw and pass this along to as many people as you know.

    One person can still make a difference in this world, is that simple interactions have a rippling effect. Each time this gets pass along, the hope in cleaning our planet is passed on.

    good article, no idea what i'm reading though!

    It seems surprising to me that a Mezuzah would be an issue especially when they can be a piece of decoration similar to a door knocker etc..for those unfamiliar with Mezuzot look at some of the better mezuzah stores such as http://www.mezuzahmaster.com for examples. If you can hang a welcome sign on your home you should be able to hang a nice Mezuzah.

  • pacelegal

    The old cases suggest that someone could be found liable if they are actively involved in pointing to a sign so that passersby read the sign containing the defamatory material. This situation is somewhat different from a person providing a link or footnote to a matter which someone may wish to explore further if they should choose to do so. Taken to it's logical extreme this means that one cannot report or comment on the law or any issue of public interest taking place without fear of being dragged into legal proceedings by a well resourced entity or powerful figure.

  • If you are involved in a road traffic accident your first priority should be for your health and for that of any other injured parties.Most collisions occur a short distance from home because we are comfortable in these familiar surroundings and let our guards down. Serious and fatal injuries can occur at low speeds on neighborhood streets. Paying attention means making an effort not to eat, drink, smoke, text, fiddle with dashboard controls or read while driving. Driving a large, fast moving vehicle is the most dangerous activity many of us do every day and deserves our undivided attention.Most collisions occur a short distance from home because we are comfortable in these familiar surroundings and let our guards down.

    This is a very interesting ethical issue. I personally don’t feel that there is any ethical concerns, because these investments are generally mutual.

  • Gloria Grening Wolk MSW

    Several errors in this piece. One: investors who become beneficiaries do not get the death benefit tax free. Do not trust any sales agent who tells you that. Another: It is rare to get as much as 1/3 the death benefit, which is what the writer wants you to believe. Much, much less because these companies can buy fraudulently issued policies for as little as six percent. Among the ethical questions: Unless the seller gets several purchase offers, he or she is likely to be cheated of tens of thousands of dollars. This has happened far too often in the US, resulting in lawsuits.

  • Lawson Hennick

    Thank you for sharing your insight Gloria. It’s sad that people would sell their policy for pennies on the dollar. This type of investing is quite unknown in Canada and the case law seems very sparse to date. Lawsuits in Canada may become more common as the baby boomers sell their policies in the provinces that don’t exclude this practice.

  • Gloria Grening Wolk MSW

    If you or anyone else would like a copy of the report I sent members of the National Conference of Insurance Legislators (US), a disgustingly political conglomerate, you can read about some of these abuses–the cases are cited. I took time to prepare the report because some of them wanted to add to the model life settlements act a provision to require insurance companies to notify policyholders that they could sell their policies. In my opinion this would mislead insureds who might then believe the industry was legitimate. To get a pdf copy email me ggatViatical-Expert.net

    The pharmaceutical industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, with astronomical profits, surely this industry could financially assist in ensuring prescriptions are administered properly. Generating prescriptions electronically or even changing the look of the prescription bottles based on the type of drug being administered would be a good start. This inexcusable issue can be so easily avoided  by taking the proper precautionary steps to avoid medication errors.

    This is well-written and also a very intriguing subject. One of those so-called “gray areas” (excuse my American spelling of gray) that challenges the court system on an emotional level. I wonder if dogs would be the only pets that this would apply for or if petowners could make the same claims if they were to suffer emotional distress over the loss of, say, a cat or even a bird.

  • Lawson Hennick

    That’s a good question. I guess time will tell. My understanding is that in the U.S. the law is much more rigid on this and pet owners don’t usually have this recourse. So, if you’re look for justice for your pet bird in America, best of luck. 

  • Melissa Schulman

    I’m curious if the court would have ruled differently had it found that the Plaintiff’s depression caused her to miss these appointments/treatments, and as such she wasn’t able to mitigate her losses. That seems reasonable. I think it would be a bit harsh to have a rigid rule that conditions developed after the injury can never excuse the failure to mitigate.

  • Extremely revealing the truth behind bars. It is grossly unfair to inmates & their families the things that happen to some of these “poor” guys inside these places. What a life!

    It seems like the nightclub should be more than just 15% liable in the Dryden v. Campbell Estate case

    It will never be clarified because of the wall of government silence – Government Silence = Silent Euthanasia.

    I totally agree.
