Personal Injury
The most common types of personal injury claims are road traffic accidents, accidents at work, tripping accidents, dog bites, assault claims, accidents in the home, on a cruise ship, product defect accidents (product liability) and holiday accidents.

Traffic Offenses
The law of traffic offenses, also known as traffic violations, covers unlawful activities that occur while an individual is operating a motor vehicle. Some traffic offenses are defined as misdemeanors or felonies from the outset, such as driving with a revoked license, leaving the scene of an accident, or reckless driving.

DUI vs. DWI
Driving under the influence (DUI), or driving while intoxicated (DWI), is the crime of driving a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol or other drugs (including recreational drugs and those prescribed by physicians), to a level that renders the driver incapable of operating a motor vehicle safely. People who receive multiple DUI offenses are often people struggling with alcoholism or alcohol dependence.

Divorce
Because separating joined lives can be difficult and messy, each state has specific steps that must be taken in the process of divorce, from the couple’s separation, to the final divorce decree ordered by a family court judge. Requirements for, and the process of, getting a divorce vary by jurisdiction.

Misdemeanors
Depending on the jurisdiction, examples of misdemeanors may include: petty theft, prostitution, public intoxication, simple assault, disorderly conduct, trespass, vandalism, reckless driving, discharging a firearm within city limits, possession of cannabis and in some jurisdictions first-time possession of certain other drugs, and other similar crimes.

Non-Violent Felonies
Some of the more common non-violent offenses may include: Most property crimes, such as theft, embezzlement, and receipt of stolen goods, arson. Fraud, tax crimes, other forms of white collar crime. Drug and alcohol-related crimes. Prostitution. Racketeering and gambling. Bribery.

Expungements
Expungement is the official sealing of an individual’s records of arrest and conviction. This must be done by a court of law, and serves the purpose of making such records unavailable to people doing a background check. Because most employers, and many landlords, commonly ask applicants if they have a criminal record, and may not hire or rent to someone with a criminal past, the process of expungement has become more popular. To explore this concept, consider the following expungement definition.

Juvenile Law
The behavior of a minor child that is marked by criminal activities, persistent antisocial behavior, or disobedience which the child’s parents are unable to control. A violation of the law by a minor, which is not punishable by death or life imprisonment.

Tax Sale Law
A transfer of real property in exchange for money to satisfy charges imposed thereupon by the government that have remained unpaid after the legal period for their payment has expired.
Tax sales are authorized by state statutes to collect taxes that are long overdue to the state government from negligent or unwilling individuals.
