Use caution when creating an IRA inheritance trust
When you hold an IRA, those funds can be distributed to the person you name as beneficiary or to an inheritance trust. Some IRA owners choose a trust because it gives them a degree of control over how the assets are distributed after they die.
Before you name a trust as the beneficiary of your IRA, however, consider the pros and cons. Attorney Christopher Slusser and the staff of the Slusser Law Firm in Hazleton and Philadelphia can help you handle your estate planning needs.
When one of us gets hurt as a result of someone else’s carelessness, we expect to be compensated for the harm, whether it’s for our medical expenses, our time out of work or our pain. But it’s very common for the responsible party (or the insurance company that might foot the bill) to say that a physical injury was from a “pre-existing condition,” and thus there’s nothing for them to pay for.
A recent Florida case, though, shows us that in the right set of circumstances, an injured party can recover despite having a pre-existing condition. The condition can sometimes even help your case if you can show that the other party’s negligence made your condition worse. That’s why it’s important to talk a lawyer after you get hurt, instead of taking an insurance company’s “no” for an answer.
Attorney Christopher Slusser and the staff at the Slusser Law Firm in Hazleton and Philadelphia can assist you in obtaining the compensation you deserve for your slip-and-fall injury.

Employer’s dilemma: balancing ADA requirements with rules of the workplace
In many cases, it's difficult for an employer or employee to determine if they are properly following the laws set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). When a lawsuit arises, Attorney Christopher Slusser and the staff at the Slusser Law Firm in Hazleton and Philadelphia can help clients with their case.
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, employers must accommodate workers with disabilities. If an employer takes a negative employment action (firing, refusing to hire, demoting, refusing to promote, etc.) against an employee with a physical, mental or even emotional disability, the disability can’t be the reason.
