Why you should put aside emotions in family law matters

Deciding to end a marriage can be a difficult but freeing conclusion to reach. However, it may be the easiest part of a divorce. Missouri residents who are ready to pursue a divorce should be aware of several factors that can influence the outcome of this family law process -- including how your finances might play out in the future.

Marriage is often marked by pronouncements of love, but the legal side of things are quite different. Couples enter into legally binding contracts, which are terminated during divorce. Although most people know that letting emotions run wild when dealing with legal issues is not a good idea, this can be difficult during divorce. Still, by keeping the matter in perspective and emotions in check, most people can reach a successful settlement.

Driver charged with murder following Missouri crash

Drivers in Missouri likely see police officers on the roadways relatively frequently while they are driving. Most people have likely had a moment of panic even though they know they have not broken any laws. This panic can often cause a reaction that is unexpected and could even be considered illegal. Unfortunately, a young woman in Missouri has now found herself facing multiple murder charges after police say she refused to stop when they attempted to pull her over.

The alleged incident reportedly happened one afternoon on a day in early June. According to police reports, officers attempted to pull over a Jeep. The driver allegedly failed to stop. Police say that the Jeep then collided with a sedan in an intersection.

Types of business insurance

Small businesses can be an important part of many areas, strengthening local economies and building communities. Being a small business owner can have many benefits to you and your region.

Every new business owner needs to think about getting an insurance policy for it. There are a few different kinds of insurance you can get for your small business.

Man may deserve workers' compensation after work accident

There are many dangerous jobs in Missouri and across the country. While employers and workers work hard to avoid such accidents, they are often unable to completely do so. In fact, a man in an another state may deserve workers' compensation benefits after he recently suffered injuries in a welding accident.

The incident reportedly happened just before midnight on a day in mid-May. Police officers claim that they received a call about a 58-year-old man who had suffered burn injuries. According to reports, he had been welding at the time.

Tree trimmer suffers fatal work-related injuries in apparent fall

When most people in Missouri think of dangerous occupations, police officers and firefighters who are required to run toward danger are often the first thing that comes to mind. However, many occupations hold risks of work-related injuries that are surprisingly high. For example, a tree trimmer in another state has recently lost his life in a work accident.

Reports indicate that calls regarding the accident came in at approximately 12:40 p.m. According to first responders, the victim was a 36-year-old man. He was reportedly employed by Arborwell Inc., a maintenance and tree-trimming company. Reports indicate that he had been working on trees at a university housing complex at the time of the incident.

Family of deceased man may deserve workers' compensation

Most workers in Missouri are aware of the potential for harm they face while completing their workplace responsibilities. Despite this knowledge, victims of workplace accidents likely have concerns about their financial security if they are involved in such an accident. Additionally, their family members can also suffer the consequences, especially in the event of a fatality. As a result, employers are required to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage.

The family of a deceased man in another state may deserve such compensation after a recent workplace accident resulted in the man's death. According to reports, the man was on the roof of a company called Tidewater Insulators just before 7 a.m. on a day in mid-May. Police claim that they were initially notified that the man was working on repairs at the time.

Workers' compensation: Utility worker killed in boom collapse

When people in Missouri report to work, they often face potential hazards in the workplace. While some of these hazards are well-known, making them easier to avoid, others can be difficult to anticipate. Unfortunately, a man in another state recently lost his life in an industrial accident. His surviving family members may be entitled to workers' compensation insurance benefits as a result.

The incident happened at approximately 10 a.m. on a day in early May. According to reports, a crew of workers from a utility company were using a boom truck as they attempted to replace a utility pole on the shoulder of a road. Witnesses say that once the pole was in place, the boom collapsed.

Police investigate Missouri crash that caused personal injury

When someone has years of driving experience, they can make it look easy. However, operating a motor vehicle often takes a great deal of practice. What might seem like a minor challenge for an experienced driver could be a dangerous driver for an inexperienced one. In fact, police in Missouri are investigating a recent car crash that resulted in personal injury to four teenagers.

The incident happened just before 4 p.m. on a day in late April. According to reports, a sports utility vehicle was headed south on a Missouri roadway. Police say that the SUV left the roadway and crashed into a tree.

Not complying with noncompete agreement leads to business dispute

After creating a business and working hard to gain success, many Missouri company owners want to do their best to ensure that their businesses do not face unnecessary setbacks. In some cases, employers may require certain contracts, such as non-compete agreements, in order to ensure that employees do not have the opportunity to help competitors get ahead. Of course, these agreements are not always foolproof as employees may violate the terms, causing a business dispute.

When it comes to addressing such a dispute, litigation may be necessary. It was recently reported that a company in another state has filed a lawsuit against a former employee for violating a non-compete agreement. The company, which provides commercial hygiene supplies to various industries, claims that the man created a company that directly competes with their business.
