WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BODILY INJURY AND PERSONAL INJURY?
Bodily injury may be referenced in criminal court cases, referring to injuries sustained by someone who has been the victim of an assault or another crime. Personal injury is commonly referenced in civil court claims and covers all costs incurred as the result of an accident or wrongful death. The difference between bodily injury and personal injury is where you might encounter each one in a legal context. Each type of case may present different standards for liability and proof. The individual state where an accident takes place can have different implications for these terms. Bodily Injury Insurance Covers the Other Party’s Expenses Bodily injury refers to specific kinds of harm done to the body after an incident, such as bruises, burns, cuts, fractured bones, and nerve damage. When someone carries bodily injury insurance, it covers the costs of the other person involved in the accident. For example, if you run a red light and strike a bicyclist, you may be held at fault for their injuries. Depending on your policy, bodily injury insurance may include all or some of their losses. Legal Implications of Bodily Injury Coverage Depending on where you live, whether your state is a “fault” or “no-fault” state will determine the extent of what kind of insurance you need to carry in the event of an accident. For example, in Florida, drivers are not required to carry insurance coverage for bodily injury liability (BIL) except for vehicles registered as taxis. However, because Florida is a no-fault car insurance state, all drivers must have insurance policies with a minimum of $10,000 in PIP coverage. After an accident, you will first file for damages through your own insurance company, regardless of who caused the accident. You may have additional costs that go beyond what your PIP policy can cover. Having PIP does not prevent you from pursuing additional losses through the other party’s insurance. Typically, it boils down to this: bodily liability insurance covers the damages of the other party if you were the cause of their accident. PIP is for covering your own injuries and losses after an accident. Again, depending on where you live, different factors may affect these definitions. Personal Injury Is Related to Civil Claim Damages All states allow accident victims to pursue compensation from the liable party to cover the cost of their damages. To do this, you must prove that because of this otherwise avoidable situation, you have incurred expenses. It is important to have relevant evidence that supports your account of events. To ------prepare for your claim, you will want to keep the following: -Photographs or any videos of the accident -The police report or any other law enforcement documents -Medical records from injury-related examinations -Proof of lost wages for any work missed after the accident -Records of all communications between yourself and the insurance companies -Receipts assigning a value to property damage What Is Included in a Bodily Injury Claim? A claim for bodily injury will include any expenses from your injuries that you’d submit to your bodily injury insurance carrier. Depending on your state’s laws, this may include costs related to your own injuries or costs related to the injuries of any other parties involved in the accident. These claims may be covered by your PIP insurance or other coverage. What Qualifies as a Personal Injury Case? Anytime one party is injured or becomes ill as a result of another party’s negligence and there are demonstrable damages, you may have a valid personal injury case. People and entities have a duty to prevent others from harm. Personal injury lawsuits come about when this duty has not been met and someone is harmed as a result. Statute of Limitations After an Accident You do not have an unlimited window of time to pursue a civil claim. If you live in Florida, you have four years from the date of your accident to get a personal injury lawyer and file a lawsuit. However, if you live in Tennessee, you only have one year to seek financial recovery. If the accident results in fatalities, the timeline may be different. Under the Florida statutes, the statute of limitations for wrongful death is two years. These cases can be complex, so the sooner you reach out to a wrongful death attorney, the better. Some variables, including the ages of who was involved in your accident, may affect this timeline. In general, the statute of limitations begins on the day of your accident or the day your injuries were discovered. However, there are exceptions. You can ask your attorney about the laws in your state. Filing a Personal Injury Claim Can Cover Some of Your Losses If you are injured in an accident and endure pain and suffering as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may have a personal injury case. When looking to cover the cost of your losses, filing a personal injury claim may include: -Past, present, and future medical bills -Lost wages -Reduced earning capacity -Pain and suffering -Emotional trauma -Loss of consortium -Wrongful death When you are dealing with the aftermath of an accident, an insurance adjuster will prepare, file, and adjust your claim. This person represents the insurance company by evaluating the cost of the damage to your property and health. You may find that the amount they offer does not fully cover the extent of your losses. Do not feel obligated to settle for the adjuster’s first offer. Before you agree to accept any settlement, make sure that you understand your legal options first. For this reason, many people choose to contract legal help.

This French City Is (Literally) Powered By Cheese.
By now, you've heard of alternative electricity sources like wind, water, and solar power, but have you ever heard of using cheese? For one French city, cheese production is responsible for a considerable amount of their electricity. But how exactly do they do it? When Albertville, a city in Beaufort's dairy manufacturing region, makes its cheese, they use special equipment to convert the whey's methane gas emissions into pure energy that can be used to power 7% of the region's electricity. According to the Smithsonian, this is enough to power roughly 1,500 of 20,000 homes. That may not sound like much, but when you consider its potential, the city might just be onto a new avenue for renewable power sources. In the picture above, you can see the Valbio power plant that produces the aforementioned 'cheese power'. While it's the largest of the company's dairy-powered energy plants (and the largest of such plant on Earth), it's not the only dairy plant around. The same company began building the generators over a decade ago and set up similar plants in Europe and Canada - with more to come! In fact, those in the States might be surprised to know that the Fage brand's Greek yogurt also plays a part in powering the region from where it's produced. When Fage is made at its Albany-based plant, the whey used is later pumped to a wastewater plant to produce energy from its fermentation. Pretty cool, huh? So I hope that all of you who decided you'd like to cut down on the dairy going into the New Year re-embrace your love for all things covered in cheese. You're doing it for the greater good of the environment. It's your personal duty to eat tons of cheese. Let me know what you think about this new, cheesy fuel source in the comments below. And for more WTF news, follow my WTF Street Journal collection.
Intellectual Property Rights and Competition law
The paradigm of interface between the Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and Competition law is that the two legal regimes are interconnected by the economics of fostering innovation and a convoluted web of legal policies that seek to stabilize the scope and effect of each policy. There exists a common area wherein Competition policy and Intellectual Property Law aim at nurturing innovation, effectiveness, consumer welfare and economic growth. The interface between the two, Competition policy and Intellectual Property Law has been examined from two main aspects: (i) the effect that the Intellectual Property Rights have in shaping the disciplines of competition law; and (ii) the application of competition law on the post-grant use of IPRs. Intellectual Property Rights act as an institutional regulatory framework restricting, usually as an exemption, pure exclusion of restraints by competition law. The Competition Act, 2002 (India) under section 3- outlines that its provisions will not restrict "the right of any person to restrain any infringement of or to impose reasonable conditions, as may be necessary for protecting any of his rights which have been or may be conferred upon him under various IPR statutes. Nonetheless, the Competition Act does draw the line insofar as it does not permit unreasonable conditions to be passed off under the guise of protecting IPRs. Thus, in principle, IPR licensing arrangements which interfere with the Competition law policies such as competitive pricing, quantities, qualities of products or abuse of the dominant position whatever be the source of such practices would fall foul of latter in India.
