The tragic future for brain injury victims

An accident resulting in a traumatic brain injury can be one of the most devastating events a family can endure. Some of the common causes of brain injuries in Minnesota include motor vehicle accidents -- especially those caused by impaired drivers -- pedestrian accidents and winter sports such as snowmobiling.

A severe head trauma can mean a lifetime of struggle. The brain controls all the functions of the body, from your movement to your ability to breathe. The location in the brain and severity of the injury determines the level of impairment and changes the victim will face. If your loved one suffered a brain injury recently, you may have many questions and fears about the future.

Office Romance Perils: Cupid, Draw Back your Bow, but Not at Work

Heart Tie.pngWithout question, some of the nastiest cases we've handled have started with office romance gone bad. It makes perfect sense; two people break off a romantic relationship but are then expected to get along in the same workplace. One may feel jilted - the other, harassed. Co-workers sense the mounting tension, and they take sides. The problem is even worse when the romance involves a supervisor and subordinate, for that often results in allegations of favoritism by co-workers and / or retaliation by the subordinate. Eventually, it devolves into claims of discrimination, harassment and retaliation.

The Failure of Anti-Bias Training: Is Employee Engagement the Solution ?

20180304_202223.jpgEarlier this year, my wife and I seized the opportunity to travel to Doha, Qatar to visit our son who was stationed at nearby Al Udeid Air Force Base. It was a remarkable experience.

As we engaged with those we met, we realized that despite our differences, we shared many things in common.

Protecting your personal property in case of divorce

One of the most common concerns for people walking through the divorce process is what will happen to their personal property. If you are facing the prospect of divorce, you may wonder what will happen to your stuff and what you can do to protect your interests. It may be beneficial for you to learn more about what is marital property and what is non-marital property.

Marital property is anything purchased or accumulated over the course of a marriage, and it is all subject to division in the event of a divorce. It may be a prudent step for you to know how to shield your non-marital property and protect yourself in case of an unexpected situation in the future. Property division issues are often some of the most contentious issues in a Minnesota divorce.
