Here at Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma, we know that injuries can happen almost anywhere and for many different reasons. This is why our personal injury attorneys are so aggressive when it comes to slip and fall accidents. Many times these kinds of incidents are preventable if property owners took just a bit more care and were a bit more attentive. The teams at our offices in Phillipsburg, New Jersey and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania would like to take a few moments right now to consider the nature of these kinds of accidents and what they involve right now so you have a basic understanding of why we take them seriously.

A few weeks ago, a lower court ruled that same-sex couples, who are otherwise eligible, must be permitted to enter into civil marriage. Governor Christie filed an appeal and asked for a stay, whereby he requested that the higher courts stop marriage licenses from being issued while the appeal was pending. The higher courts rejected that request noting that if the stay was granted same-sex partners would be denied federal benefits available to opposite-sex couples, namely; leave claim under the Family and Medical Leave Act; coverage for health benefits as a "spouse" of a federal employee; certain Medicare benefits; the filing of joint tax returns; being considered a "spouse" for immigration purposes; and participation in a Survivor Benefit Plan as a spouse of an active or retired member of the military.
