What is involved in buying a franchise?

Purchasing a franchise is a complex undertaking. Anyone interested in this kind of business must enter into a franchise agreement, which is a type of licensing agreement that binds the franchisor and franchisee together. This document explains what the former expects from the latter in terms of operating the franchise business. There are several elements in the agreement, and it is important for the franchisee to understand them all. Since this is a legally binding contract, an attorney experienced with the franchising process can offer valuable assistance and ensure that the franchisee understands the terms, rights and obligations set forth.

Pedestrian accidents can cause devastating injuries

Florida is one of the few states to experience warm weather all-year round. Because of this, many Fort Lauderdale residents prefer their feet or bicycles to their motor vehicles. Sadly, some pedestrians end up getting injured by one of those motor vehicles. Pedestrians who have been injured in a car accident can file a personal injury suit against the driver that hit them.
