        What are My Rights When Dealing with Debt Collectors?

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        If you fall behind on loan or mortgage payments, your creditors may assign a debt collector to contact you. This may be an uncomfortable situation, and you should know that you do have the right to be treated fairly. The Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Illinois Collection Agency Act and the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Practices Act will protect you from certain unfair treatment; however, these laws do not forgive any debt you owe.

        What Juries Do Not Know – The Truth About Insurance and Trial Lawyers

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        What Juries Do Not Know

        99% of trials in personal injury cases are about insurance.  What juries do not know, is that the true battle is between the injured individual and the insurance carrier who represents an individual or corporation who is being sued.  The jury is led to believe that the Defendant is an individual or a corporation, but the case is really about his insurance policy and the insurance company… and the droves of attorneys for the insurance company who will fight not to compensate fairly and pay what’s due.

        A Pharmacy Employee Disclosed Personal Information About Me

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        Question:

        First off, I am still in high school. There is this girl that works at a local pharmacy and she has access to personal records like prescriptions, etc. Well, she decides to go and tell all of her friends that my whole family is on herpes medication and all about other kids and what they’re on, i.e. acne medication and even what their parents are on like Viagra.

        Well, I don’t even think I can attend school anymore, I am so hurt. This is extremely embarrassing. Now, I used to work at a pharmacy a couple of years back and I know how easy it is to access these files, and I guess it’s really up to the person whether or not they have the character not to discuss other people’s business.

        I was wondering if I had a case, isn’t this slander? And another thing, if I was to sue who would I sue – the pharmacy for not having passwords on the computers or the girl (who I might add is very rich, mansion, Ferraris, all of that). I was wondering if you could help me out with this case.

        Illinois Bicycle Accidents: Who is Responsible?

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        Who Is Responsible?

        Bicycles are a health-conscious way to travel – not to mention less expensive and more eco-friendly than motor vehicles. Still, cycling comes with certain risks, such as a potential accident with a motor vehicle. As the total number of cyclists has increased, unfortunately, so has the number of accidents and fatalities involving cyclists and motorists.
