Post Decor Duct Cleaning

After any painting has been done. Paint fumes, odors, and toxic particles can live in your HVAC system for many months after the paint dries. Be sure to have commercial duct cleaning done once all painting is finished.

  • Whenever there is a resident with sensitive asthma or allergies. It is necessary to clean HVAC ducts more frequently whenever someone with allergies or asthma is living in a space. This is due to the fact that much smaller amounts of build- up can bother someone with sensitive allergies or asthma, than someone without.

Have you ever cleaned the top of a ceiling fan? Think about how much dust builds up on top of a ceiling fan even though there is air passing around it constantly. The same is true for your HVAC system, the air constantly moving through your ducts deposits a large amount of dust over time, and without proper cleaning your ducts will start to look like the top of a neglected ceiling fan.

It is impossible to predict how sensitive to air quality new residents will be. While some residents may never think about air quality, other residents may notice within the first day or two of being in a new place. This means it is hard to predict when your air quality could become a big problem, if it is not properly maintained. Residents with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory disorders can be very sensitive to things in the air that people without these conditions would never notice. This is why it’s a good idea to always keep your air at the highest quality. If your duct systems and air is properly maintained you’ll never have to worry about it.

Assault and Battery as Personal Injury Claims In Calgary

Vast amounts of personal injury cases are the result of a slip, fall, or automobile accidents. In some instances, act that resulted in the injury was done willingly rather than accidentally. In the instance of personal injury law(, “assault” and “battery” are willingly done things that can form the basis of civil lawsuits in court. In a typical case, the victim of an assault or battery sues the offender, seeking monetary reward for injuries or other damages stemming from the incident.

What kind of act falls into assault? What is battery? This article defines the willingly done wrongs of an assault and battery, highlights key issues in civil lawsuits, and explains differences between civil and criminal cases involving the two.

In a personal injury lawsuit, assault is usually defined as any intentional act that is meant to cause “reasonable suspicion of imminent and harmful contact” Which means: an activity that made the victim expect that they were about to be hurt or touched in what is deemed harmful way by an offender. In many states, that fear of imminent harm is all that would be deemed necessary for an act to be considered an assault.

The specific legal requirements are different for each state. A lawsuit for assault would likely happen in these situations:Injury Lawyer Calgary Alberta
A man points his hand at someone and says, “I’m going to punch your lights out.”
A man points a toy gun at someone in order to scare him. This fake firearm looks like a real weapon, and one man believes the other is going to shoot him.
A man or woman is crossing a street at a crosswalk. Someone approaches the intersection in a vehicle and accelerates, wanting to make said pedestrian think they are about to be hit. The offender brakes last minute, stopping the automobile only a few feet from the victim.
Keep in mind that, as above examples demonstrate, no physical contact or touching is necessary in order for the intention of assault to take place. It’s the implied threat that matters. If physical contact does occur between offender and victim, the intention of “battery” is called into play.

The specific definition intention of “battery” will be different for each state, but typically all that is neded for battery to be called into play is that an offender make intentional and harmful or offensive contact with a victim.
For a battery to take place, the contact by an offender and resulting abuse to a victim can be:
direct and immediate (an example being, one person pushes another)
indirect and immediate (for example, an offender throws a rock that hits a victim), or
indirect and remote (for example, an offender sets up a trap that a victim falls into days later).

Its important to note that a victim does not actually need to be physically harmed for a battery to take place under civil law. In many states all that’s called for is that the contact be offensive or inappropriate and that the offender did intend for it to take place.
The wrongs of assault and battery often stem from one event. However, that isn’t always the case. It’s possible for an assault to occur without battery. For example the offender raising a hand to a victim, but never following through with said threat. And a battery can also take place without an assault. For example, an offender pushes a victim from behind, that’s almost certainly a battery under personal injury law. If the victim never saw said offender before hand and never recognized any alarm, an intentional assault probably did not occur.

When it comes to harm, cases involving assault and battery can have different levels of gravity. No physical injury is required in many states. So lawsuits for assault and battery can vary in terms of damage restitution. In instances where there was no physical harm done (or very little), filing a civil case may not always be worth it, even though an assault or battery may have technically taken place.
When an assault and battery incident requires extensive medical attention, a lawsuit may be the best way for a victim to acquire reimbursement for medical bills and monetary compensation for things like pain and suffering.
A lawsuit won’t be successful if the person being accused has any valid legal excuse for their conduct. Here are a few examples of some common defenses to a personal injury lawsuit where assault or battery is alleged.
1. Consent: The defendant might say that a victim agreed to a possibility of being hurt. This defense arises more often in cases where sports, paintball-style games, and similar activities are involved. The plaintiff who files a case in these instances may have a more difficult time winning since they consented to certain body to body contact, even though the contact up resulting in harm. So, before agreeing to play contact sports: take into consideration that risk of injury is significant.

2. Privilege: A police officer who used force while arresting someone might try to assert defense of privilege. For example, if the police officer injured someone while making an arrest, a lawsuit for assault and battery probably won’t be successful as long as said officer used a reasonable and appropriate amount of force while making an arrest. With some cases, police brutality will be taken into consideration, resulting in a win for a victim.

3. Self-defense or defense of others: For example; someone who is accused of assault or battery was responding appropriately to the threat. Then a suit for assault and battery probably won’t be successful. The key here is whether this person’s response was a reasonable reaction to the given situation. Say an offender swings at a victim with the intent to strike. The victim can probably latch on to the offender’s hand or arm and try to overcome him without being accountable for intention of battery. In that situation, a victim can’t take out his gun and shoot an offender, then claim self defense, because that wouldn’t be considered the reasonable response under these circumstances. Self defense, or Stand your ground laws are only in effect in the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia.

In many states, assault and battery are crimes that can be prosecuted by said st
