Falling debris is a common cause of injuries on construction sites. Construction debris, tools, supplies, loose tiles, and other objects dropped from a height can cause severe injuries as well as wrongful death. According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), getting struck by a falling object is the construction industry’s second leading cause of fatal accidents. In 2013, there were more than 82 construction fatalities nationwide resulting from falling debris.
Many people are increasingly getting fake IDs to buy alcohol or cigarettes. This is not only illegal but it can also be dangerous. If someone gets caught, they could go to jail for up to six months and have a criminal record that will follow them the rest of their life. Personal injury lawyers know how fake IDs can lead to serious legal problems down the line, so this blog post discusses personal injuries and fake ID with you in mind. The fake id industry is a billion dollar one, and it’s only getting bigger. One fake id website even claims to be the world’s largest fake identification card maker. The site “fakeidprice.com/

Every day more and more people are looking for ways to take advantage of this booming industry by making their own fake IDs or buying them off the internet. But what happens when these fake IDs lead you into trouble?

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
