Janice E. Grevler Has a Baby

Heart Attack Warning Signs Associate Lawyer Janice E. Grevler’s new baby, Joshua Samuel Gladstone

What is Duty of Care?

Duty of care is a requirement that a person act toward others and the public with watchfulness, attention, caution and prudence that a reasonable person in the circumstances would. If a person’s actions do not meet this standard of care, then the acts are considered negligent, and any damages resulting may be claimed in a lawsuit for negligence.

Associate Lawyer, Janice Grevler, and her husband, Jon, are thrilled to announce the arrival of their adorable baby boy, Joshua Samuel Gladstone!

Joshua was born in hospital on August 16, 2012, weighing 7lbs. This is the first child for Janice and Jon.

Janice has been a part of the Share Lawyers team since 2008. She has significant experience in disability and personal injury litigation and is committed to vigorously advancing our clients’ rights with compassion and dedication.

For example, if a motorist runs a stop sign and ends up hitting and injuring a pedestrian, the motorist has failed to uphold a duty of care to follow the rules of the road and avoid injury to others. Running the stop sign and injuring a pedestrian would be seen as negligence in a court of law.

IN PERSON: Maria Gallucci (continued from page 1)

She quickly interviewed and hired a chef to take her place, but as the months went by and customers found out that Maria was not the one cooking, they stopped visiting. Profits began to decline dramatically.

In the meantime, Maria was wracking up bills for transportation, physical therapy and medication.

Maria saw an ad for Share Lawyers on TV and decided to give the toll-free number a call. She was greeted warmly by a law clerk who, after asking her a few questions about her accident, booked Maria in for a consultation with a lawyer.

Maria arrived for her free consultation at the Share Lawyers office with a great deal of anxiety, but Associate Lawyer Leanne Goldstein quickly put her at ease.

After speaking with Leanne, Maria felt that someone finally understood the challenges she had endured since her accident and was relieved to learn that she had a case.

Maria hired Share Lawyers to sue the market for failing to clean up the slippery area that caused her to fall and injure her hip. She was compensated for all expenses incurred due to the injury and a large portion of the profits her business lost due to her inability to work, as well as her pain and suffering. The settlement monies allowed Maria to rethink her future and the future of her restaurant.
