Man hospitalized after alleged excessive force during arrest

Although greater attention is being paid to police officers and their behavior when investigating and making arrests, there continue to be incidents in Southern California and across the nation in which allegations are made of excessive force. People who are mistreated when dealing with law enforcement should be aware of their rights to seek compensation. It is unfortunate that incidents of police misconduct keep happening, but legal assistance is vital to protect those who were subjected to it.

California drivers ranked worst in the country

California is famous for its difficult traffic, but dangers that go beyond seeing a sea of red brake lights are a constantly lurking issue for those who drive in the state. Studies are useful to determine exactly how dangerous it is to drive in California and across the nation. While steps are being taken to ensure and improve safety, there are issues that arise and should be factored in when examining the driving circumstances. A recent study shows that California is viewed as having the worst drivers in the U.S.

Man faces battery charges after post-meeting altercation

Criminal charges in Long Beach do not always emanate from the obvious criminal behaviors like theft, selling drugs or sexual assault. People getting into physical altercations can also lead to criminal charges and this can occur not as part of illegal activity, but due to people getting into an argument and letting it turn physical. Although many of these cases might not involve people who are ordinarily in trouble with the law, they still need to protect themselves by crafting a strong criminal defense.

Am I eligible to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

Debtors in Long Beach who are experiencing financial challenges might think they have no method to get back on stronger financial ground and get a fresh start. When bankruptcy is suggested, they might believe there is a stigma with it that they are not fulfilling an obligation or are doing something wrong. The reality, however, is that bankruptcy is a legal and reasonable strategy to improve financial standing. For individuals, Chapter 7 is a solid option, if they are eligible. The goal of Chapter 7 is to give debtors who have run into financial trouble an opportunity to get a fresh start. After the debts are discharged, the debtor will no longer be responsible for them. If there are liens on properties, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy does not clear it.

Faulty DUI test can be used as part of a defense

When a driver in California is arrested for driving under the influence, oftentimes one of the foundational pieces of evidence that is used is the DUI test. However, the test itself is not infallible and, if there is a problem with the testing device, then it can call the evidence into question and help with an acquittal. Those who have been placed under arrest for DUI must understand the serious nature of the allegations, that there are harsh penalties and the potential for long-term consequences.
