October 2016: Legal Tips for Bankruptcy & Personal Injury

Bankruptcy Tip- A court imposed fine or penalty is normally not dischargeable in bankruptcy unless it is considered “pecuniary in nature.”  A recent federal court has found that incarceration costs imposed on a criminal defendant are pecuniary and thus are dischargeable in bankruptcy.

Personal Injury Tip – Slip and fall cases are very tough in Kansas as there is no recovery unless the property owner was more than 50% at fault for the fall.  Even when a store has a slippery condition on the floor, if a jury finds both parties 50% at fault for the fall, there is no recovery.  Missouri does not have this threshold.

Have a great week Kansas City and visit The Law Office of David S. Adams today at http://www.olathelaw.com/ for more information on personal injury and bankruptcy.
