What are Some of the Benefits of a Las Vegas Corporation?

Weighing all the Options Opening in Las Vegas

Personal Injury staffLas Vegas is certainly a microcosm of the United States. There are so many advantages to Sin City and things to consider. If you or someone you know wants to incorporate a business, you may wish to consider LV. Below we review a number of factors that play a role in your decision making process.

The State of Nevada is known as a corporate haven across the nation. Businesses incorporate under Article 78 of the Nevada Revised Statutes. Las Vegas has a rich access to infrastructure. Being just three hours from Los Angeles, it can act both as its own entity and an extension of California. Nevada law is particularly protective of corporate officials.

In particular, if a company operates in California but is chartered in Nevada, the latters’ law applies. Furthermore, Nevada’s laws also prevents many companies from hostile takeovers. Nevada is a state with no franchise, corporate, or personal income tax. The state does charge a $200 business license fee for corporations but this is much lower than applicable CA taxes. This also allows disputes over corporate issues to be settled within Nevada District Courts and appealed to the Supreme Court of Nevada. This enabled protections beyond those of other states.

Very Friendly for New and Existing Businesses

All of these factors and more allows Nevada to be, in some ways, even more business friendly than Delaware.

Inc Magazine has several key reasons to move your business to Las Vegas, as well. These include the area’s low cost of living, tax advantages, joining a growing city, and taking part while property in the area is less expensive. All of these add up to a very compelling number of reasons.

This list is by no means comprehensive. However, we hope that the info included and our experience will allow you to make a better decision.

Grace v. DC Making it Happen for Second Amendment Civil Rights?

A Win for the Second Amendment

Gun Free Zone Sign

Many free thinking injury attorneys know that peaceable, law abiding citizens can avoid serious injury or death by use of defensive arms. Gun rights activists won a major day in court in September 2017. A three judge panel on the US Court of Appeals struck down a DC provision limiting pistol ownership. The District is now a “shall issue” territory.

The case centered around a DC requirement forcing applicants to bring forth a “good” or “proper” reason to receive a concealed carry permit. Effectively, this made it very difficult for the average person to own and carry such a firearm.

It appears the issue is done and over with. WTOP reported that the District of Columbia would not challenge the ruling in the Supreme Court. For the time being, the decision is a firm notch in the win column. The District is now a “shall issue” area, instead of being more restrictive. Perhaps New York or California is next.

The National Rifle Association was thrilled with the result. They stated, “At the same time, it’s important to celebrate that law-abiding Americans are now closer than they have been in nearly half a century to being able to exercise their firearms freedom in our nation’s capital. That is real progress.” Such an amazing feat took several years and legal expertise to win. It also shows the ability of an army of Davids to win against the big government Goliath.

Where do things go from here? Additionally, does that mean DC will pass other anti-gun laws? Of course, all of these are on the table. Furthermore, many pro-gun activists are fighting for the right to bear arms in all 50 states and DC. Their rugged determination protected a basic human right from extinction. We hope that it will be a precedent for other locations and states to follow.

Bloomberg reported on the recall and its potential effects.

The recall affects Ford F-150 and Super Duty pickups. Ford shipped out the vehicles with faulty side doors. These doors often don’t open or can appear closed without actually latching. Ford claims there’s been no injuries yet. However, the recall affects the 2015-2017 model years. Furthermore, the F-Series of trucks is Ford’s most popular. Overall, Ford expects a $267 million loss.

In addition, the recent recall scandal eats into Ford’s profit margin. It also undemines trust in the brand, still damaged from issues from the Great Recession. We wish the American company well. Everyone wants Detroit to succeed. However, pushing out inferior products won’t cut it. Overall, the recall affects about 1.1 million pickups in the US. It also affects over 220,000 in Canada and over 20,000 in Mexico.

Not the First Major Issue

This isn’t the first recall Ford’s had over the last several years. Ford was involved in several major recalls, each of which was a unique challenge to drivers. Ford vehicles also used faulty Takata airbags. These airbags were infamous for causing death and injuries. Some riders even described them as IEDs.

Furthermore, Ford’s problems are just beginning in the recall. The issue hasn’t resulted in reported deaths or injuries yet. However, when and if such an issue happens, the car giant is on the hook for millions in lawsuits and litigation. The company will be under a fine toothed comb.

Cruise Death

Why Are there So Many Cruise Liner Deaths?

Big ships like this are responsible for massive cruise ship accidents.

Tragedy struck an innocent family after their eight year old daughter died on a cruise ship. The tragedy is one of dozens that happen each year. The growing issue of cruise line safety is not appropriately addressed on the state or federal level.

Fox40 reported on the situation with Miami-Dade police. The girl died on a Carnival Cruise Lines ship Carnival Glory. The ship docked at Port Miami. The girl fell from the ship’s interior atrium to the lower deck around 8:15 am. First responders transported her to Jackson Memorial Hospital where she died. A spokesperson for the Fire-Rescue said she fell about 20 feet.

Potential Fault on the Cruise Line

Carnival apologized to the family, but it is clear this is not enough. Authorities allowed the ship to resume normal operations. However, a death deserves a closer look. Rescuers and investigators must thoroughly review the ship and ensure no future similar event. Each life is precious. We do not need such disasters as occurred here. Furthermore, the line clearly did not live up to expectations.

The family has many potential approaches. Furthermore, it is our responsibility to prevent a future such horror. In addition, Carnival and other liners should take safety more seriously. It is the least they could do. Our team is looking into the causes of the accident.

Our lead attorney, Michael Ehline, is a top fighter for families harmed by cruise line companies. He is an advocate and lobbyist in both Sacramento and DC for cruise line safety. He’s worked with legislators of both parties on basic regulation to protect passengers. For more info or to speak with one of the experts at the Ehline Law Firm APLC, please contact us today.

Left Hand Turn

Considering the Many Aspects of Legality in Left Hand Turn Cases

Mini van versus car accident.
Beverly Hills car crash involving mini van.

Crash! A left-hand turn crash is one of the most common that a driver faces on the road. Left-hand turns are statistically more likely to cause crashes. Whether you are on one side of the accident or another, it is important to seek out fault in such an accident. In many cases, the law is quite clear, but in many others, a closer look is required.

Often, state driving guidelines are quite understandable. In the state of California, a driver taking a left-hand turn must make sure that the way is completely free of traffic. They may only turn when such a complete turn may be done without impeding traffic. Attorneys determining the cause of the accident weigh such a factor. They will also weigh issues in the law. Left-hand drivers have an obligation to yield to existing traffic. Thus, in most cases, the left-hand turn is at fault.

Need for the Right Legal Aid

A skilled attorney is necessary in such a case. A layperson will not be able to correctly determine the full cause of the accident. In some cases, both drivers may be at fault. Only with experience can an expert determine where all of the fault lies. A skilled lawyer will be able to argue such a point in front of a judge or a jury. This is especially important in cases where one party or another is injured.

Of course, there are some exceptions to any rule. Furthermore, the circumstances of the crash itself must be considered. For example, the person making the left-hand turn May follow the law to Perfection. However, the other driver sped through the intersection or ran a red light. Perhaps one driver was traveling too fast for the conditions.

One of the most important aspects of any. After a crash is seeking legal representation. Only an expert is able to help in the proper way. This is where the Ehline Law Firm Personal Injury Attorneys, APLC, is there for you. Our Southern California practice has Decades of experience in just such cases.
