Understanding non-compete agreements

Non-compete agreements have become increasingly common at Arizona businesses. The laws on these documents will vary from one state to the next, but as of right now, Arizona has fairly lax laws on the matter. For example, in some states, the agreement becomes unenforceable if the employer fires an employee without just cause. That law does not apply to Arizona. 

Reasons why stair accidents happen

We tend to use stairs in almost any type of building or premises that we encounter. We often use many different staircases every day, and it is likely that we do not even notice when we are doing so. Using stairs is such an automatic activity for many of us that we expect the steps to be uniform in height and to be safe for use. Therefore, when they are not as we expect them to be, accidents and injuries can occur as a result.

Creating an incentives trust

When you have children or grandchildren, you will know that it can be challenging to encourage them to make wise life choices. Delaying gratification can be rewarding and pay off handsomely in the future, but younger people can find it difficult to delay gratification unaided.

Claiming damages after being injured at a party

When you are present on another person's property as a welcome visitor or as a guest, the owner of the premises has the duty to do whatever is reasonably necessary in order to keep you safe. This holds true for house parties that are held at a home. It is true that when alcohol is involved, parties can become hazardous. However, the host of the party and the premises owner must ensure that everyone is kept safe and that those who are intoxicated do not have further access to alcohol on the premises in order to avoid potential injuries.

Think twice before flipping that house

The real estate market is hot for both investors and buyers alike. If you are ready to try your hand at flipping properties in the Phoenix area, you could not have picked a better time to start. You may not be a first-time house buyer, but that does not mean you do not have anything to worry about when investing in property. The housing market is laden with opportunity for novice and veteran investors and homebuyers.

Motorcyclists should watch out for these dangers

As a motorcyclist, it is likely that you are very aware of the dangers involved. However, the unfortunate thing is that no matter how competent a driver you are on the roads of Arizona, you essentially have no control over the actions of other people on the road.

Dealing with an injury from an Arizona hotel room

When taking a vacation in the state of Arizona, you will expect to have a fun and relaxing time, and you might even be planning for a luxury stay at a high-end hotel. No matter what type for hotel you stay in, you will at least expect to be safe from harm. Unfortunately, injuries occur in Arizona hotels each year. In many cases, action can be taken against the hotel owner for the damages that occurred.

The grounds for contesting an Arizona will

When you have a loved one who passes away, it can be a very difficult time both emotionally and from a logistical perspective. Therefore, it is important that you seek support from friends and other relatives while you are going through the process. Many unforeseen things can happen when dealing with a loved one's estate, and you may realize that the will is not what you expected at all.
