Loved One Arrested? What You Should Know About Posting Bail

One night I was sitting at home relaxing when my husband called me from jail. He told me he had been arrested and asked me to post bail. I had no idea how bail worked. I didn't know if I should do it, what it would cost or how to go about doing it. I created this website because I know that others may find themselves in the position that I once found myself in. I hope my information helps you make a decision on whether or not to post bail, and teaches you what to expect should you do so.

Steps To Take If You Get Injured At A Carnival

If you spend some time being entertained at a town carnival, and you get injured on one of the rides due to negligence on part of the ride operator, you will need to take steps to try to prove this if you want to get reimbursed for medical expenses and loss of wages. It can be difficult to prove an injury if you do not handle the incident properly right from the time it occurs. Here are some of the steps you should take to help your case if you get hurt at a carnival.

Get Information

Carnivals usually move from town to town so it is imperative that you do not waste any time gathering information before they pack up and move to their next location. Find out the name of the company providing entertainment for the carnival and get a name of the person who had been running the ride where you got injured.

Ride operators will take turns handling different rides, so it is important to have a description of the operator if you cannot obtain a name. Since the carnival headquarters may be in a different province from where you live, a personal injury lawyer (such as one from The Law Offices of Stanley Pasternak) would best be able to help you with your claim.

Get Medical Assistance

As soon as an injury happens call for medical help. If you wait too long to seek treatment for your injury, it will appear as if it was not bad enough to warrant a personal injury case. Get documentation about the injury from your doctor proving that you were not able to go back to work. Follow your doctor's orders very closely. If you fail to get prescriptions filled or if you do not show up for subsequent appointments to track your progress, the lack of actionable care can possibly hurt your chances in getting reimbursement.

Get Evidence

After you get hurt, try your best to remember details about the scene where the injury occurs. If you have a cellphone, snap pictures of the ride you were on when the injury occurred; include the reason why you believe you have gotten hurt. Take pictures of the surroundings, including any people who may be in the area right after the injury occurs. If you are able to get names of witnesses who were in the area, they may be able to testify on your behalf if you end up taking the carnival to court.
