Thousands of freelance drivers roam the streets waiting for someone who needs a ride to work or the airport. The only requirements for these drivers is a valid driver’s license and a four-door vehicle no older than 15 years.

With over 111 million monthly users, Uber has become a staple in today's society. People depend on rideshare apps to get them home safety after a night out, but what happens when that doesn’t happen?

When purchasing a product, a consumer has every right to believe the item will perform safely and correctly when used per the manufacturer's instructions. Unfortunately, thousands of people every year find themselves a victim of a defective product. If you have been injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation by filing a product liability claim. The goal of these claims is to find what party in the supply chain is held responsible for the defect in the product before it reaches the customer for use. Defective product liability suits are put into three separate categories to help determine who is at fault.

If you are having to make a court appearance for a criminal case in the near future, you may be tempted to appear “pro se” or “on one’s behalf” in order to defend yourself.

Generally, it is ill-advised to represent yourself in a court case and here are a few of the reasons why.
