Negative Credible Fear Determination If You Have Political Opinion Asylum Claim?

Political Asylum

Can You Get A Negative Credible Fear Determination If You Have A Political Opinion Asylum Claim? An Indian National was detained at the Tallahatchie County, Mississippi Detention Center. He had just received a negative credible fear asylum finding and he was upset. He called his friend, and told him, “If I return to India I will be killed.” The client was a member of the Shiromani Akali Dal Mann Party (Mann Party) and he was being targeted by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He was attacked on numerous occasions, so it made no sense how he received a negative credible fear determination....

Trampoline Parks Rising In Popularity and Injuries

Trampoline Safety

Trampoline Parks Rising In Popularity and Rising In Injuries On a typical weekend in Mississippi, the trampoline parks here are at a large capacity with hundreds of kids and adults bouncing, jumping, and playing. Trampoline parks have now become a billion dollar industry. But, in the past several years in the United States, many people have developed severe injuries from these trampoline parks, even death. The numbers could be even higher but many injured people are forced into arbitration with those trampoline parks and ordered to sign confidentiality agreements that stop them from telling their story. In a recent video from a...

Immigration Negative Credible Fear

HOW WE GOT A NEGATIVE CREDIBLE FEAR DETERMINATION REVERSED AND OUR CLIENT RELEASED ON PAROLE. A Cuban national was first detained at the Tallahatchie Detention Center in Tutwiler, Mississippi after capture and arrest at the border for trying to enter the United States without entry or inspection. After being detained at the Tallahatchie Detention Center, he had a Credible Fear Interview (CFI) telephonically with a USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) asylum Officer to determine whether or not he could demonstrate that he has a credible fear of returning to his home country. A few days after our client had...

Don’t Apply For Social Security Disability During Your Mississippi Workers Compensation Case

Apply Social Security Disability Workers Comp

Do not apply for Social Security Disability when you are in the middle of a Mississippi Worker’s compensation case In 20 years of practicing injury law in Mississippi, I have seen thousands of workers’ compensation cases come through our doors here at Chhabra & Gibbs, P.A.  There is a common theme to these cases:  whether you are from Jackson, Gulfport, Meridian, Port Gibson, Grenada, Tupelo, the delta or the gulf coast, when you get hurt on the job in Mississippi you are going to suffer financially.  Unfortunately, our political climate is often driven by money from big corporations which causes the...

Getting Your Personal Injury Medical Records & Bills

Medical Records

Why should you help your personal injury attorney get your medical records and bills? Medical records and billing statements are a critical piece of any personal injury case in Mississippi. This is true whether you are hurt in a car wreck, a slip and fall, due to medical negligence, or any other kind of personal injury. Your medical records and billing statements are used to prove the damages you have suffered in your personal injury case.

Can I Get a Copy of My Incident Report?

Incident Report Slip and Fall

Can I Get a Copy of My Incident Report? You probably would not expect to hear “No” to that question, but that is what Wal-Mart and other big box retailers will tell you when they have you complete an incident report at their store after you fall or get hurt. Don’t accept No for answer. Demand a copy. Or better yet, snap a photo of the completed form before you turn it in. You can also take a photo of the manager taking report, her name tag, the office you are completing report in and the spill that caused the fall. Keep your...

Hit and Run Car Accident in Mississippi?

Hit and Run in Mississippi

What should I do if I’m in a hit and run car accident in Mississippi?   First, do not chase them.  Let me say that again.  Do not chase the person you were in a hit and run car wreck with.  People do this because they have a sense of justice.  I understand that, but chasing someone could get you hurt...

Do lawyers really act like Saul?

Saul - Better Call Saul

Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul have become pop culture phenomenon’s on Netflix.  One of the characters is the sleazy money hungry lawyer called Saul.  He wears the car salesman suit and fits the obnoxious mold that we expect attorneys to have.  He even has this endearing side and line of ethics that he will not cross, although he always tries to figure out a way to get what he wants without getting himself in trouble.   As a lawyer, I can appreciate why people have stereotyped us, and why the show portrays Saul that way.  The purpose of this blog is...

Everyone Needs Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Mississippi law requires all drivers to maintain minimum liability insurance limits on the vehicles they drive.  This covers you if you are at fault and cause someone else to have a personal injury in a car accident or 18 wheeler wreck.  However, not everyone gets liability insurance as the law requires.  Roughly 25% of Mississippi drivers are uninsured. If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident with someone who doesn’t have car insurance in Mississippi, you could be in for a major headache. You could be on the hook for your own medical bills and repair costs. You are...
