Office of Richard A. Kranitz (N/A:N/A)

Incorporating technology into a law practice can make the practice more efficient and increase client satisfaction. In fact, technology may enable the practitioner to exceed client expectations.”

— Richard A. Kranitz, business attorney

GRAFTON, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Technology is advancing, and the legal profession must keep up with these technological and societal changes. Many of us still remember when they first saw a personal computer, when cell phones became widely available, and when cell phones turned into smart phones that have become indispensable for many. In his first article in a published series, Richard A. Kranitz focuses on Case Management by software. The complete articles will be published on the blog of Richard Kranitz at https://richardkranitzblog.blogspot.com/

Incorporating technology into a law practice can make the practice more efficient and increase client satisfaction. In fact, technology may enable the practitioner to exceed client expectations. Here are a few, simple-to-implement options that Mr. Kranitz has reviewed:

Case Management Software

Long gone are the days of paper routing slips, desktop inboxes and consecutive reviews by paralegals and attorneys during which papers and files are shuffled back and forth. With case management software, incoming documents are reviewed in a pre-determined sequence or as authorized, and files or documents are updated the same way. The staff has real-time access to documents and status reports. Important dates are automatically entered into a calendar. Case Management Software also enables legal teams to focus on a pre-set process, thus saving time and energy, and greatly reducing the stress in this deadline-driven profession. Case Management Software can also greatly reduce costs for the law practice and the clients by standardizing and accelerating document creation and maintenance.

There are many different kinds of Case Management Software, some general ones such as:

https://www.capterra.com
https://www.clio.com
https://www.mycase.com
https://www.trialworks.com
https://www.cosmolex.com

And some tailored to a specific practice:

https://www.smokeball.com – for probate practice
https://www.practicepanther.com – for bankruptcy
https://www.inszoom.com – for immigration law practice

These are just a few examples, and should not be considered endorsements of any of these products. Each law practice should make sure to test them carefully before buying, and take advantage of the free test versions or consultations that many software providers offer as part of their sales process. Find the right software to fit your own needs and your client’s expectations

Research and Mobile Technology

Subscription research services such as LEXIS and Westlaw have been available to attorneys online for decades, gradually rendering hard copy law libraries obsolete. The internet has done for law what it has for every other area of modern life, providing instant access to information.

To be continued. – The complete article will be published on the blog of Richard Kranitz at https://richardkranitzblog.blogspot.com/

*NOTE: The inclusion of a technology or app in this article does not mean an endorsement or approval. The listed technologies are just for illustrative purposes. None of these particular technologies are endorsed or recommended by this author.

IP’s “PR problem” will be Discussed by Leading Figures at Public Event in New York

What to do about intellectual property’s negative image is the focus of the IP Awareness Summit, a gathering of concerned owners, educators and creators, Nov 29

Remarkably, in what I believe amounts to Orwellian ‘doublespeak,’ those who’ve been advancing the patent troll narrative argue that they do so because they are actually pro-innovation.”

— USPTO Director Andrei Iancu

NEW YORK, NY, USA, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Leading intellectual property owners, creators, educators organizations and managers will consider the best ways to improve literacy about the role and impact of IP rights at the second annual IP Awareness Summit in New York on November 29.

IPAS will examine how increases in information access and speed have affected how patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets are seen and why they often fail to be accepted as “legitimate” property. The Summit also will address improving IP literacy through education and the media. Registration is open to the public.

IP Thought-Leaders

Featured speakers include United Stated Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Director Andrei Iancu, leading inventors, educators and the media.

Director Iancu said in fireside chat before more than 600 members of the Licensing Executives Society in Boston on October 15 that IP faces a public relations problem and the once heralded American inventor is no longer seen as a hero. He amplified those remarks at a speech later that week before the Eastern District of Texas Bar Association:

“Remarkably, in what I believe amounts to Orwellian ‘doublespeak,’ those who’ve been advancing the patent troll narrative argue that they do so because they are actually pro-innovation. That by their highlighting, relentlessly, the dangers in the patent system, they actually encourage innovation…

“What an odd message to deliver in the 21st century. What an odd message to deliver in America in particular, a country of risk-takers, entrepreneurs and inventors. An odd message indeed, especially given the incredible success of the American patent system over time.”

Others who will address be addressing IP literacy issues at IPAS 2018 include Manny Schecter, Chief Patent Counsel at IBM and President of the Intellectual Property Owners Education Foundation, and Jay walker, entrepreneur, Priceline.com founder, TEDMED curator and one of the most prolific U.S. inventors. There will be panels, other speakers and breakouts with audience participation.

Among those already registered for IPAS 2018 are IP owners, executives, educators, creators, service providers, investors, lawyers, IP organizations and the media. The remaining tickets will go fast.

VictimsSpeakDB.org Data Infers Suicide Rates Among Victims of Clergy Sex Abuse Exceed 50 Times the General Population

Sinner Seeking Absolution from Clergy Sex Offender

Clergy Confessing His Sins in Vatican

Confession at the Vatican

Out of a possible 100,000 victims of Catholic clergy sex abuse in U.S., more than 725 will never be heard from again. These are suicides, not drug overdoses.

Victims of Catholic clergy sex abuse have a 50 times higher incidence of suicide than the general population. The bishops who covered up for clergy sex offenders seemed oblivious or indifferent.”

— G.R. Pafumi

SPRING VALLEY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since 1950, the number of victims of Catholic clergy sex abuse in the United States is estimated to be approximately 100,000. VictimsSpeakDB.org has identified over 6,600 of those victims. These victims have provided sufficient detail to be included in the SACADDAS (Survivor Accounts of Catholic Clergy Abuse, Denial, Accountability and Silence) database. Of those 6,600 victims, 48 have successfully committed suicide, most likely because of their abuse. Compared to the general population, the rate of suicide among Catholic clergy abuse victims is 50 times higher. Here is the data.

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), 21 males and 6 females successfully commit suicide per 100,000 of population. Collectively, 13 people kill themselves per 100,000 of U.S. population. The CDC data is for the year 2016 and is age-adjusted to account for changes in the distribution of the population by age. This adjustment makes the data compatible with prior years when the age of the population was distributed differently. The CDC also identified victims who committed suicide at the age of 10 or older between 2014 and 2016. According to the CDC in this survey, 25 males and 7 females successfully commit suicide per 100,000 of population. Collectively, 15 people kill themselves per 100,000 of U.S. population.

Out of 6,600 victims included in the SACCADAS database, 44 male and 4 females purposely ended their lives. Extrapolating to 100,000 possible abuse victims in the United States suggests that more than 830 males and 300 females have already committed suicide or will commit suicide at some point in the future. Together this works out to 725 victims per 100,000 of population. Compared to CDC age-adjusted data for 2016, male clergy abuse victims are 39 times more likely to commit suicide than the general population, female clergy abuse victims 51 times more likely. Overall, all clergy victims are 54 times more likely. Compared to CDC data for 2014-2016 (of victims 10 years old or older), male clergy abuse victims are 34 times more likely to commit suicide than the general population, female clergy abuse victims 44 times more likely. Overall, all clergy abuse victims are 47 times more likely.

The comparison made by VictimsSpeakDB.org should be considered a rough estimate. It may be comparing apples and oranges. Recognize that most individuals in the United States are not victims of abuse or depression. It is to be expected that suicide rates would be low. Victims of Catholic clergy abuse, or abuse of any kind for that matter, would likely be more prone to use suicide as a way to escape their pain. In any event, the data strongly suggests that priests and other clergy who abuse victims, usually kids, place the victims at a substantially higher risk of suicide at some point. The period when suicides take place is widely distributed by year and age.

The 48 victims of suicide included in the SCCCADAS database resided in four countries. As previously noted, there were 44 male and 4 female suicides. The youngest suicides were 12 years old; three suicides. There was one suicide each for the ages 13, 14 and 15 years old. The oldest suicide was 63 years old. There was also one suicide for the age 56 and two for age 50. The earliest known suicide among victims included in the SACCADAS database occurred in 1971. The last suicide occurred in 2017. There were two suicides in 2017, one in 2016, and one in 2015. With all of the resources available to victims today to get them into therapy, it is most disconcerting that some victims still view suicide as the only option to end their pain.

The bishops who covered up for clergy sex offenders seemed oblivious or indifferent to the pain. Victims need therapy, not legal fights. The Church needs to stop fighting the victims and take ownership of the problems it created not only by the abuse, but also by the cover-up of that abuse. Denying victims therapy and/or restitution may lead to an early death, i.e. suicide. With an age range when victims committed suicide from as low as 12 to as old as 63, it is never too early or too late to get victims into therapy.

Most recently, the Archdiocese of Agana (Guam) announced it was filing for bankruptcy. It said it would not follow the Milwaukee approach. The Archdiocese of Milwaukee challenged the validity of each of the more than 570 claims on legal grounds. The Milwaukee bankruptcy took four years to complete. The victims got $15 million, their lawyers, $7 million. The Church spent $23 million on the litigation. That $15 million works out to about $26,000 per victim. A victim can’t buy a whole lot of therapy for $26,000. The Church in Milwaukee was dealing in bad faith with the victims. The $23 million it spent on litigation to defend itself makes my point. Had it just settled the matter, the victims could have gotten twice as much cash.

The Roman Catholic Church can no longer assert its moral authority. It has become an institution controlled by men who are intrinsically immoral. What happened in Milwaukee was immoral. The Church in Guam is using the bankruptcy process to circumvent a recent Guam law which eliminated the statute of limitations in civil cases. This is immoral, although perfectly legal. This is a Church acting in bad faith with victims. Perhaps it ought to consider the victims who killed themselves. How many more need to die before the Church acts responsibly? Cardinal Timothy Dolan spent $177 million on a facelift for St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. He spent less than $60 million on his archdiocese’s Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program. The 278 victims got a mere $215,000 each (before legal fees). This is a paltry sum for a lifetime of pain and certainly insufficient to a grieving parent who has had to bury a child after a suicide. Is the Church about monuments or people? Its historic record is not encouraging.

— Janet Reed, North Carolina lawyer

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Law Office of Janet Pittman Reed announced today that principal attorney Janet Reed is setting up a new legal blog https://janetreedesq.blogspot.com/ which will focus primarily on Family and Domestic Relations Law, how to locate information, and how the law is changing.

“With all the sometimes confusing information regarding Family Law, I felt that I could help explain the important issues at hand to families in need” said Janet Pittman Reed. “I have more than a decade of experience working in this area, and can help people understand the issues before a dispute develops, and obtain initial information when they need legal help.”

Family law does not only encompass marriage, children, divorce, and marital assets, but also implicates tax and retirement issues. The procedures are very complex and hard to understand for a layperson.

Ms. Reed is planning to inform affected families so that they are better prepared for what awaits them in a family law proceeding, such as divorce or child custody.

Ms. Reed explains that she has noticed in her practice that “many affected families do not know that the court system and non-profit organizations provides a lot of support. For example, the North Carolina Judicial Branch website has several videos that explain family law proceedings, including a video on Family Court Orientation and a new video on Parent Education, Access and Visitation.”

This is based on Session Law 1999-237 House Bill 168 Section 17.16, which authorized the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts (NCAOC) to establish an educational program for parents who are parties to a custody or visitation action and to administer any parent education. These parent education programs make divorcing parents or parents living in separate homes aware of the needs of their children. The informative video that the court system provides, “The Most Important Job,” provides guidance for parents from professionals as well as from the child's perspective. Family courts provide this type of education locally according to their local rules. To accompany this video, the court system has published a handbook, The Most Important Job: Parenting Information for Families Living Apart (North Carolina Parent Education Handbook). Ms. Reed believes that such information should be provides more widely to lessen the stress and burden on families, and she will contribute to that.

Ms. Reed also explains that often multi-state issues are involved that make this field of law even more complex. “For example, family law is sometimes implicated in child custody cases when you have a spouse from a different State. When one parent takes the child to another State, or from another to North Carolina, this may result in a legal dispute as to in which State the child should live. Other areas of broader implications are marriages with spouses from different states, or where one spouse was married before.”

Janet Pittman Reed is planning to inform the public about such available information, procedures and developments so that any family law matter can proceed more smoothly and put less stress on the family and particularly children.

What To Do If You Have Suffered a Hand Or Neck Injury On The Job

Saffren and Weinberg - Personal Injury Attorneys

Any work related injury deserves compensation.”

— Marc Weinberg, Esq.

JENKINTOWN, PA, UNITED STATES, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — +

At Saffren and Weinberg, Marc Alan Weinberg, Attorney and Kenneth Scott Saffren, Attorney are partners. The firm’s tagline is “The People’s Voice In Court.” They make themselves available via phone at (215) 576-0100 or by email on the Saffren and Weinberg website. Saffren and Weinberg provides a no-charge, complimentary case review and answers questions for prospective clients.

What To Do If You Have Suffered A Hand Or Neck Injury On The Job

Is waking up in the morning becoming something you dread because of your back pain? Do you experience pain in your wrist often? Have you noticed a decrease in strength in your arms?

If you have answered ‘yes’ to any or all these questions, then you may be suffering from computer posture problems.

Before you brush it off aside as a trivial issue, you should know that ignoring back pain, hand and wrist pain for long can lead to permanent injury. It is high time that you pay attention to the signs that your body is giving you and seek treatment as soon as possible.

You need not fret about medical costs because the health woes arising from desk jobs, also known as white collar injuries, are acknowledged as workplace injuries or personal injury which deserves compensation.

Being Aware of the Source of Injury

Back and hands are the most affected when you spend hours typing on your keyboard or clicking your mouse. Back injuries may be taken seriously when one experiences severe pain, but hand injuries are most often neglected. Whether it’s your back or your hand, you shouldn’t take a nagging pain lightly.

Workplace injuries are not very uncommon. As desk jobs have grown at an alarming rate with the introduction of computers, workplace injuries have taken a different form. Repetitive stress and sedentary work environment create injuries that slowly progress to critical levels.

Here we have listed a few common types of back and hand injuries:

Repetitive Strain Injury: The injuries that arise from repetitive actions are referred to as Repetitive Strain Injury. They are also categorized as musculoskeletal disorders or MSD.

Computer users who type and write for long durations daily are at risk. Staring at the computer and sitting in one position, also put stress on your neck, leading to neck injuries.

It can often lead to spine problems in the future. If neglected for long, the pain can aggravate, and you will soon be having difficulty in carrying out menial tasks such as opening the door, picking up a bag, etc. Carpal tunnel syndrome is also an RSI injury, so is tennis elbow.

Hand sprain: When you repeatedly move your hand and fingers on your mouse in the course of work, the muscles in that area are under stress. It can lead to severe pain and soreness in your hand and wrist.

The pain, though, could increase gradually and spread to the forearm, elbow, and shoulders. If not attended to, hand injuries can even lead to the formation of ganglion cysts in joints. If you feel a tingling sensation around your fingers, especially, the thumb and the index finger, then you should consult a doctor.

Thus, you should always take preemptive care so that you can prevent these injuries. Apart from ergonomically designed chairs, things that can help are a good posture, short breaks while working, and hand and body stretching exercises that you can do while sitting.

Refrain from sitting in one position for a long duration. Take a walk every hour. Remember, self-care is the best care.

It is not common that people seek claims for computer-related injuries as not many are aware that they can file a claim. Most of such injuries arise due to the absence of ergonomic workplaces and that it is your employer’s duty to provide.

The first thing that you need to do is report any such injury to your employer. You need not worry about losing your job or inviting displeasure from your employers.

You should know that under workers’ compensation laws, employers cannot enforce any action on you for filing a claim for a workplace injury. If you’re not sure, you could talk to a personal injury lawyer and get an idea about the process.

Get the Help You Need Now

A workers’ compensation attorney can help you get more done in case your employer isn’t cooperating. The expert team at Saffren & Weinberg can help you with filling out all the paperwork to support your claim, helping you put forth the case and also to protect you from the employer in case they take any retaliatory measures against you.

If you’ve been injured in your hand or have a back injury due to repetitive work, call us at (215) 576-0100 to find out your options to file a work injury case.

Montana Mesothelioma Compensation Center Now Appeals to A Power Plant Worker with Mesothelioma in Montana to Call Them Anytime for Direct Access to the Nation's Top Lawyers for Mesothelioma Compensation Results

"If you or your loved one in Montana just received news of a confirmed mesothelioma diagnosis, please call us anytime at 800-714-0303 so we can explain how the mesothelioma compensation process works.”

— Montana Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK , USA, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Montana Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are urging a power plant worker or energy worker with mesothelioma in Montana to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 to ensure they have direct access to some of the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys. A delay in beginning the mesothelioma compensation process could result in the diagnosed person receiving less compensation. We are talking about what could be the loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars or more for this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure because the diagnosed person was no longer capable of telling extremely skilled lawyers about the specifics of their asbestos exposure."http://Montana.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Montana Mesothelioma Victims Center fears that most people with mesothelioma in Montana do not realize the compensation clock starts ticking on the day their diagnosis is confirmed. "If you or your loved one in Montana has just received news of a confirmed mesothelioma diagnosis, please call us anytime at 800-714-0303 so we can explain how the mesothelioma compensation process works. Please don't shortchange yourself when it comes to mesothelioma compensation because you didn't ask for help or waited too long-especially if you are a power plant or any type energy worker in any state."http://Montana.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Top mistakes power plant or energy workers make when it comes to the receiving the best mesothelioma compensation:

* Avoiding the mesothelioma claim's process altogether due to not wanting to speak to an attorney.

* Not doing enough research on honest sources of information on mesothelioma, resulting in believing Internet ads that focus on "No lawsuits required," "Federal Claims Center," or "Get your treatment first, and then call us."

* Hiring a local personal injury attorney who specializes in car accidents, as opposed to hiring a full-time nationwide law firm with a law practice that's solely devoted to getting a diagnosed person with mesothelioma the best possible compensation.

* The power plant or energy worker in Montana is so sick that their family is afraid a mesothelioma lawyer might cause extra agony for the person, resulting in the diagnosed person never actually speaking to a lawyer about their asbestos exposure at all.

The Montana Mesothelioma Victims Center’s unsurpassed free services are available throughout Montana in every community including Billings, Missoula, Great Falls, Bozeman, Butte, Helena, Kalispell, Havre, Anaconda, or Miles City. http://Montana.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

For the best possible treatment options in Montana we strongly recommend the following heath care facilities with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at each hospital.

* Providence Health Services Western Montana: https://montana.providence.org/locations-directory/m/montana-cancer-center
* The Billings Clinic: https://www.billingsclinic.com/services-specialties/cancer/.

High risk occupations for exposure to asbestos in Montana include the US Navy, Malmstrom Air Force Base workers, 341st Missile Wing workers, miners, oil refinery workers, smelter workers, pulp and paper mill workers, welders, plumbers, machinists, mechanics, insulators, construction workers, railroad workers and or former residents of Libby, Montana. http://Montana.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Prominent Int'l Crimes News Op-ed Warns Sri Lankan Crisis a Threat to National Reconciliation and Accountability

Lead Story on JusticeInfo.com penned by the Sri Lanka Monitoring and Accountability Panel(MAP),a Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam(TGTE)Established Body

NEW YORK, USA, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Bringing a big win to the movement for international recognition of and accountability for the Tamil Genocide, JusticeInfo.com, one the most respected international crimes news resources, has published on its front page the op-ed “Sri Lanka: A Threat to Reconciliation and Accountability,” written by three renown international human rights lawyers nominated to the Sri Lanka Monitoring and Accountability Panel (MAP) by the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE), TGTE is pleased to announce.

“JusticeInfo.com’s decision to publish this op-ed on its front page, calling attention to the Sri Lankan political crisis and how the crisis is a ‘deep blow to the rule of law, promised accountability and respect for human rights in Sri Lanka,’ is a testament to the gravity of situation for the accountability process, for the international crimes, namely genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes, already shrouded in deception, ” said TGTE Prime Minister Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran. “MAP experts are individuals of the highest echelon in international human rights law, and the international community would be wise to recognize the op-ed for what it is: a resounding ringing of the alarms.”

The op-ed by MAP writes, “Sirisena’s efforts to promote reconciliation and achieve accountability for gross human rights abuses have been insipid and disappointing. In particular his refusal to take any meaningful steps to establish an independent accountability mechanism to hold those responsible for mass atrocities, including war crimes and crimes against humanity has demonstrated his bad faith. But the appointment of Rajapaksa as Prime Minister is a new low.”

Mr. Rudrakumaran echoes this sentiment. “Whether Mr. Rajapaksa remains in power or not, the mere fact that President Sirisena has appointed him as Prime Minister clearly shows that he is not a partner to the accountability process,” Mr. Rudrakumaran said.

The op-ed also outlines steps for the international community to take to prevent the complete repudiation of the commitments Sri Lanka made the United Nations Human Rights Council in particular and the international community at large. As noted in the op-ed, these include “setting up an independent evidence-gathering mechanism related to atrocities for Sri Lanka with a similar mandate to those on Syria and Myanmar to investigate international crimes; and urging prosecutors in third states to pursue cases against Sri Lankan war criminals under the doctrine of universal jurisdiction.”

The op-ed also states, “Despite the documentation of war crimes by independent UN panels, Rajapaksa continues to deny or defend the main violations, playing into the hands of the Buddhist nationalists, and appealing to the military and security services.”

“What the op-ed also gets at is something that TGTE has been saying for years: Sri Lanka is not a democratic state, but rather an ethnocratic state. It has neither a will nor capacity to mete out justice for Tamils,” TGTE Prime Minister Rudrakumaran added. “Heads of state may come and go—or as this crisis shows, come and go and come back again—but until impunity is addressed at the international level, Sri Lanka will remain as a dangerous and unjust state that threatens international peace and security.”

LINK: Read MAP’s full op-ed here: https://www.justiceinfo.net/en/justiceinfo-comment-and-debate/opinion/39444-sri-lanka-a-threat-to-reconciliation-and-accountability.html

HERE IS THE FULL OP-ED:

Sri Lanka : a threat to reconciliation and accountability

By: Andrew Ianuzzi, Richard J Rogers and Heather Ryan, for JusticeInfo.net – Nov 07 2018

On October 26, former president Mahinda Rajapaksa was appointed as Prime Minister of Sri Lanka. For the Monitoring and Accountability Panel, this political come-back risks undermining the limited progress made in transitional justice in the aftermath of a civil war that ended almost ten years ago.

In a deep blow to the rule of law, promised accountability and respect for human rights in Sri Lanka, on 26 October President Maithripala Sirisena dismissed Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and sought to replace him with former Sri Lankan president and strongman Mahinda Rajapaksa. While the constitutional legality of this move is questionable, and the role the parliament might play still uncertain, it is an alarming betrayal of the principles Sirisena stood for when elected and a grave concern for the Tamil population. All Sri Lankans should be concerned about the threat to stability posed by further backpedaling on reconciliation and accountability for mass crimes.

Rajapaksa served as president of Sri Lanka from 2005 to 2015, when Sirisena defeated him in a national election. His tenure was marked by allegations of authoritarianism, corruption and human rights abuses, especially against the country’s Tamil minority. As president, Rajapaksa oversaw the brutal military campaign at the end of the civil war in 2009, which left tens of thousands of Tamil civilians dead or missing. Despite the documentation of war crimes by independent UN panels, Rajapaksa continues to deny or defend the mass violations, playing into the hands of the Buddhist nationalists, and appealing to the military and security services.

Limited progress could be undone

In 2015 Sirisena was elected president on a platform of promoting democracy, respect for human rights, and reconciliation among all Sri Lankans following the brutal 25-year civil war. Accordingly, in October 2015, pursuant to the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) Resolution 30/1, Sri Lanka committed to promote a broad transitional justice agenda made up of four distinct pillars: an office on missing persons; an office on reparations; a truth and reconciliation commission, and a special court to hold accountable those responsible for atrocity crimes on both sides of the conflict. After two years of only marginal progress by the Sirisena government, on 23 March 2017, the HRC adopted a new resolution, stressing the importance of reconciliation through transitional justice, and giving the government two more years to fulfill its international commitments.

Sirisena’s efforts to promote reconciliation and achieve accountability for gross human rights abuses have been insipid and disappointing. In particular his refusal to take any meaningful steps to establish an independent accountability mechanism to hold those responsible for mass atrocities, including war crimes and crimes against humanity, has demonstrated his bad faith. But the appointment of Rajapaksa as Prime Minister is a new low.

In October of this year, the Sri Lanka Monitoring and Accountability Panel – a panel of independent experts who monitor the transitional justice process from a victims’ perspective – warned that the resurgence of Rajapaksa would further undermine the commitments made by the government in the 2015. Rajapaksa has consistently belittled such efforts in favor of a rhetoric dismissing the concerns of Tamils, thousands who are still waiting to hear news of their loved-ones who have ‘disappeared’. The limited progress that has been made by the government over the last three years – including basic structures for an Office of Missing Persons and an Office of Reparations – could easily be undone by Rajapaksa. He is more likely to ensure impunity for past atrocities and promote perpetrators as national heroes.

A call for an independent evidence-gathering mechanism

Rajapaksa’s reemergence threatens other critical aspects of Sri Lanka’s progress from conflict to a functional democracy. These include an opening space for freedom of expression and civil society activity, allowing greater press freedom, withdrawing the military from Tamil-majority areas in the north and the east, and controlling security service abuses.

The HRC and the international community must take steps to ensure that reconciliation and accountability in Sri Lanka is not completely swept away as Rajapaksa regains power. Steps should include setting up an independent evidence-gathering mechanism related to atrocities for Sri Lanka with a similar mandate to those on Syria and Myanmar to investigate international crimes; and urging prosecutors in third states to pursue cases against Sri Lankan war criminals under the doctrine of universal jurisdiction.

The probability of authoritarianism and abuse of power posed by Rajapaksa’s appointment should be a wake up call to the international community. Having failed to prevent mass atrocities when Rajapaksa was last in power, the international community must be prepared to take decisive action.

Andrew Ianuzzi, Richard Rogers and Heather Ryan are international lawyers and members of the Sri Lanka Monitoring and Accountability Panel.

The Sri Lanka Monitoring and Accountability Panel (MAP) is an independent body established in 2015 by the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam to monitor the implementation of UNHRC Resolutions 30/1 and 34/1, “Promoting reconciliation, accountability and human rights in Sri Lanka,” against the backdrop of the UN Secretary-General's Panel of Experts Report on Accountability in Sri Lanka, the UN Internal Review Report, and the Report of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. MAP’s recommendations enable victims and other stakeholders to participate more effectively in the accountability process and thus enhance the legitimacy of the measures. The panel will also consider issues of fair trial and due process for suspects and accused persons.

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) is a democratic political entity based on the principles of nationhood, homeland and self-determination. The TGTE Constitution enshrines democratic principles and the rule of law, and mandates that the TGTE realize its political objectives through peaceful means. The TGTE was formed after the mass killing of the Tamil people in the final months of the armed conflict between the Government of Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam.

The TGTE seeks that the international community hold the perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide against the Tamil people to account. The TGTE also advocates the Tamil people be freed from the racist and hostile Sri Lankan military and political environment in which they live, and that the Tamil people be empowered to govern themselves—the only means by which protection of the Tamil people’s human rights can be ensured.

Can I Receive Workers’ Compensation from a Work Back Injury?

Saffren and Weinberg - Personal Injury Attorneys

Every year, many Americans are hurt on the job and may be entitled to workers’ compensation.

If you injure your back at work, you should get the compensation you deserve.”

— Kenneth Saffren, Esq.

JENKINTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, November 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — +

At Saffren and Weinberg, Marc Alan Weinberg, Attorney and Kenneth Scott Saffren, Attorney are partners. The firm’s tagline is “The People’s Voice In Court.” They make themselves available via phone at (215) 576-0100 or by email on the Saffren and Weinberg website. Saffren and Weinberg provides a no-charge, complimentary case review and answers questions for prospective clients.

Back Injuries On-the-Job

Every year, many Americans are hurt on the job and may be entitled to workers’ compensation for being injured at work. Many work-related injuries are back injuries, which can be severely disabling, resulting in long-term pain and treatment, as well as reduced future earnings due to limited employment options.

If you believe you have a back injury that you sustained from being hurt at work or are on the course for developing a back condition or injury due to your activities in the workplace, it is important to understand what benefits you may be entitled to.

A back injury can be severely debilitating, and the way it manifests itself can vary significantly. Many Americans in a wide range of professions are at risk of being hurt at work from a back injury. You can maximize your chances of receiving workers’ compensation back injury benefits by speaking with a workers’ compensation attorney to plan your claim.

What Workers’ Compensation Back Injury Benefits Are There?

Even though you have a back injury, you may be able to get at least some monetary compensation to help with your medical costs and lost future earnings. This is called workers’ compensation.

Back injuries are part of a broad category of work-related injuries that are commonly referred to as “WMSD” injuries. “WMSD” injuries refer to those work-related injuries that affect the musculoskeletal system, such as injuries to the neck, wrist, shoulder, and back.

Back injuries are among the most common ways people are hurt at work. In fact, it is reported that in 2014 over 200,000 people in the United States received back injuries and back injuries account for 25% of all workers’ compensation payments.

The way your back may be hurt is extremely varied, as the back is a very complicated body part. For example, you may strain your lower back while lifting boxes as a warehouse worker. You may pinch a nerve in your spinal cord or herniate a disk from improper posture even while sitting.

There is a wide variety of back injuries and the activities that cause them. Nearly every occupation has some risk of back injury, and therefore it is important to be aware of the risks and remedies of being hurt on the job.

The kind of back injury you receive and how you receive it may still have a significant impact on whether you are qualified for workers’ compensation for it. For example, if your back pain is temporary and goes away after several weeks, it is uncertain that you will be able to claim workers’ compensation for it—even though you were hurt on the job.

Furthermore, if you have a pre-existing condition or the injury was caused by an activity outside of work, the chances of workers’ compensation decrease further.

However, if the back injury was received while at work and is severe and long-lasting, it is very likely you will be entitled to workers’ compensation claims for being hurt on the job. It is important to speak with a workers’ compensation attorney to explore your options and claim your workers’ compensation benefits.

What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a federally-determined but state-run program that allows people who have been hurt on the job to receive monetary benefits for treatment and costs, as well as compensation for lost future earnings.

Whether you have a back injury or have been hurt on the job from some other activity, it is important to understand how the workers’ compensation system works as well as consider speaking with a workers’ compensation attorney to see what benefits you may be entitled to from workers’ compensation.

Pennsylvania runs its own state-insurance program, the CRB, under its own guidelines and mandates. The agency oversees workers’ compensation regulations, whether for insurance rates, administering claims, or determining eligibility.

If you receive a back injury from being hurt on the job, you will likely be filing a claim with a private insurance carrier in Pennsylvania. The state’s workers’ compensation fund is only tapped when the insurance is not sufficient, or an employer does not have insurance.

Furthermore, it is very possible that a back injury may leave you totally injured or disabled. Workers’ compensation can provide you significant benefits for being hurt at work and even more if you have been totally disabled from it.

Is Pennsylvania Friendly to Pre-Existing Conditions or Workers’ Compensation?

In 2015, back injuries accounted for over 12.5%, or over 20,000, of workers’ compensation claims in Pennsylvania, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor.

Whatever the specifics of your back injury, there are many options available to you in Pennsylvania to receive workers’ compensation for your injuries from being hurt on the job.

Pennsylvania is not the most generous state in the country for those hurt on the job, but it still ranks among the above-average states for workers compensation payments and benefits.

In 2016, Pennsylvania ranked 17th out of 50 states. However, this was lower than its 12th place ranking in 2012. Pennsylvania pays 8% more than the national average for workers compensation.

Pennsylvania keeps a healthy workers’ compensation program for those who are hurt at work. If you believe you may qualify for workers’ compensation, a work injury lawyer can help you navigate the process of successfully filing your claim.

I believe my back may have been hurt at work, how do I get workers’ compensation?

The general process of filing your claim for workers’ compensation benefits in Pennsylvania is by informing your employer and attempting to get their insurance carrier to process and pay out your claim.

However often times the insurance carrier will challenge your claim, whereupon you can appeal to the state government and get a hearing before a state-appointed workers’ compensation judge.

If you have a back injury, the medical details of you being hurt at work will be particularly important. The back injury may have developed over time, and you may have multiple symptoms, such as spinal cord damage, muscle damage, or fractured discs. It is important to properly analyze and present the information in order to raise the chances of a successful claim.

Many workers will find they want the services of a work injury lawyer to help them navigate what can be quite complex legal maneuvers, where even a minor slip can result in severe consequences.

A workers’ compensation attorney can also help you present your case in the best possible light, significantly raising the chances of your claim being successful.

I’m ready to file a claim. What’s next?

If you believe you have been hurt on the job with a back injury, and are considering filing a claim for workers’ compensation, it is worth contacting a workers’ compensation attorney to discuss your case and see what options are available to you.

At Saffren & Weinberg, we have an experienced team of attorneys ready to win your case. Call us at (215) 576-0100 so that we can see how we can help you.
