Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer? - Personal Injury Guam

Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Guam?

One of the most frequent questions we get asked is whether or not you need to hire an attorney when you’ve been hurt in an accident that was no fault of your own.  The answer is, yes.

Most people are honest and trustworthy; so they are assuming that insurance companies or even the party at fault will also be honest and trustworthy; but the truth of the matter is that you need a lawyer to help protect your rights.  Ask yourself this, is the other party or their representatives going to protect your interests or their own?

Do not pay zombie debts!

Many people believe that they should not delay when it comes to paying off their debts and getting back on the road to being in a good financial position. However, you could be in for a big – and not so nice – surprise if you send a check to a debt collector seeking payment on an old debt.
Of course, your debts can accumulate over time, particularly as the interest on the unpaid principal balance mounts, and leave you in a very difficult spot. Even if you can only make a small dent in your overall debt balance, you may think, every little bit helps. Other times some debtors get so frustrated by the debt collectors’ tactics that they actually end up encouraging the borderline-illegal behavior by giving in to the demands and paying off the debts.

But the truth is that paying off old debts could actually hurt you when planning for bankruptcy.  This is because recent payments to creditors which are going to be subject to discharge can be considered an unlawful preference in favor of such creditors over other creditors not being paid. 

Consult with your professional bankruptcy attorney before paying debts if you are considering bankruptcy!

One of the most common reasons for marriage problems is money problems.  Money Magazine says that couples who fight, fight more about finances than any other issue.  So when it comes to financial problems, relationship problems seem to coincide. Often one leads to the other, regardless of which begins first. Some people say financial problems led to relationship trouble. Other says relationship problems led to the money problems.
No matter which comes first, the money or the marriage problem, once both are in play, life and peace of mind can get very messy and stressful for you and your home and family life.  This also means that clearing up financial problems might help save your marriage and, in that case, bankruptcy could help you deal with money issues and might get your relationship back on track. 
Whether there’s a way to fix your marriage problems or not, clearing up your money issues should make your life easier, and give your relationship a better chance to succeed, because unmanageable debt contributes to stress, which can in turn strip away your peace of mind and quality of life.  Getting out of debt can greatly improve your life and reduce stress. And without all that weighing you down, you might be surprised that your relationship and homelife also can improve significantly.

“Deferred-interest” credit cards are different from zero interest credit cards. A zero-percent interest credit card will not add interest to the balance of the purchase made during the promotional period, until after that period is over, and the balance is not paid. 
In contrast, deferred-interest cards charge interest from the time the consumer originally made the purchase, which can lead to much higher interest charges (especially when many cards charge rates of 25% or higher).  
This is because a deferred-interest card company charges consumers accrued interest on the entire promotional balance from the time they made the purchase, even if that charge has been nearly (but not completely) paid off! 
For example, a customer might use a deferred-interest card to make a $1,000 purchase. The promotional period may last, for example, one year. If the customer pays back all but $100 of that amount, she would still be charged one full year’s worth of interest on the entire $1,000 charge!  And since many retail deferred-interest cards have interest rates of 25% or more, those charges could be very significant!
many retailers use credit cards with deferred-interest promotions. What’s worse, customers may open one of those cards to finance a big purchase, and many use terms in their marketing such as “special financing” or “same as cash if paid in full.” A 2016 survey from found that nearly half of retail-branded credit cards carry an APR of at least 25%, much higher than the 15.18% national average for all credit cards.  Add that together with the fact that many of these cards are used to buy large purchases, which are not commonly completely paid off within the promotion period, and you have a recipe for financial disaster!
