Personal Injury Insurance Settlement?
I Fell And Broke Both Of My Ankles In June - Was Off Work For 12 Weeks - Home Bound - Because I Couldn't Put Any Weight On Either Ankles - I'm Suing The Company That Delivered A Phone Book And Left Right On My Welcome Mat ... Which I Didn't See When I Stepped Out To Leave My Apartment To Go To Work - My Question Is This - Does Anyone Have Any Idea How Much Money Is Averagely Awarded In Cases Like This - I Missed My Entire Summer - Was Off Work - Got Paid Because I Had Short-Term Disability Insurance (Thank God).
Any Comments Would Be Greatly Appreciated.
You may have a tough case to win, just because you fell over a phone book on your porch does not make a good liability case. However, should you have a case, you would be entitled to lost wages, medical costs, and some pain and suffering, however it will not be the amount you think it would be. Another thing you need to remember is the insurance company that paid all your medical bills will certainly file a lien for the amount they paid on your behalf and possibly the short term disability carrier. They will be entitled to their portion first. If you keep the money, be prepared for a lawsuit in the future if your medical insurance carrier sees you received a settlement from a third party and did not pay them back. Perhaps a few thousand for punitive damages.
But back to the initial injury, if you tripped over your morning newspaper that was on your welcome mat, would you sue the newspaper?? Your best bet is to discuss this with a personal injury attorney. It will not cost you anything, to see if you even have a good case. They attorney can get more of a settlement then you would on your own.
Can A Person Move Their Family Law Case To A &Quot;Higher Court&Quot; Based On Spouse Knowing To Many Employees?
My Friend Is Going Through A Divorce/Custody Case And It Seems That Everything He Files, His Spouse Knows The Same Day. He Also Feels The Judge To Be Biased Because In His &Quot;Response&Quot; Hearing, The Judge Admittedly Stated &Quot;I Haven'T Even Read Your Response&Quot; And Then Asked His Wife &Quot;What Do You Want From This?&Quot; She Stated Her Wishes And He Said &Quot;Okay&Quot;. That Was That.
So I Told Him He Could File To Have The Judge Disqualified For Ruling Without Reading Any Of His Response. He Went To Pick Up The Forms To File And Within Two Hours His Wife Called And Said &Quot;So You Are Trying To Get A Different Judge?&Quot;
What Say You All?
Did the judge RULE On anything, or did the judge just acknowledge the wife's statement? He admits to not reading EITHER response (or else why would he ask her what she wanted?), but that's actually quite common, many judges rule based on the claims they hear in court rather than reading the more formal documents.
There needs to be very good reason to remove a judge from a case, and simply not liking his ruling isn't it. The motion goes before the judge himself, so he's probably not going to recuse himself on this basis.
As for the wife know about his motions, that is meaningless. She has to be informed ANYWAY, so whether she has a friend in the courthouse or just has an attorney who has a contact, it doesn't matter, she is still entitled to the information.
Legal Advice For A Renter In Virginia.?
There Is No Lease. The Bastard Doesn'T Even Claim The House As A Rental. We'Ve Paid The First, And Last Months Rent, Plus The Thing That Pays For Damages For When We Move Out...(I'M Blonde.)
Someone Dropped A Puppy (Lab) Off In Our Yard. We Decided To Keep It. We Already Have A Dog (Lab), And Two Cats. The Landlord Saw The Puppy And Decided That No, We Don'T Get To Keep It. And That Either The Puppy Goes Or We Go. When We Asked Why, He Said That &Quot;It'S A Big Dog, And Unless You Plan On Having Her Outside All The Time, The House Is Too Small For That Many Animals.&Quot; --It'S A Two Story House--
Anyway, We'Re Looking For A New Place To Live, But We'Re Poor. We Can'T Afford Squat.
Here'S The Legal Thing. We Just Talked To Him, And We Asked That We Not Have To Answer Yes Or No Until When Rent Is Due The 1St Of The Month For July. That Way We'Ve Got 30 Days, And We Don'T Have To Pay Rent Cause We Already Paid The Last Months Rent When We First Moved In. He Said, &Quot;No, You Didn'T Pay A
If you did not get a receipt and keep it for your first, last and deposit when you moved in as well as every rental payment that you've made since, shame on you.
As far as using the house that you're renting as a security for a loan on another property, no legal problem there. It's his property and if he wants to use it as collateral on another loan, that's his business.
Since you have no lease or renta agreement, you have no obligation outside of a 30-day notice of your intent to move. Conversely, you have no protection either. If he decides he wants to change his policy on pets, the only obligation he has is to give you a 30-day notice to comply.
I do not understand him not listing the property as a rental unless he has several tax exemptions that he would not have on a rental property and he doesn't claim the rent that he collects on his income tax. Make sure you get a receipt for anything you pay him. Not much you can do, but if he really ticks you off, turn him in to the IRS for Tax Evasion.
NEVER RENT A PROPERTY WITHOUT A CLEAR WRITTEN AGREEMENT THAT SPECIFIES YOUR RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS AS THE RENTER AND THE PROPERTY OWNER RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS.

Three Hours Later I Was Called To The Hr Office With My Boss As Well And They Both Told Me &Quot;I'M Sorry, But I Cannot Accomadate For Your Restrictions. When You Can Bring A Doctors Release Stating That You Can Lift 75 Lbs. Than You Can Come Back To Work.&Quot; I Told Them That I Have A Car Payment To Make And They Presided To Tell Me To Call My Car Place And Explain To Them The Situation And That To Ask Them If I Can Only Pay My Interest Until I Can Come Back. I Told The Hr Woman That I Highly Doubt That My Doctor Will Lift My Restrictions On Me Lifting Things. So My Boss Told Me To Go Home. I Went Back To My Jobsite Out In The Warehouse To Get My Belongings And Went Back To The Front And Asked My Hr Lady If I Was Fired And She Said &Quot;Oh No We'Ll Work With You&Quot;

What'S The Best Way To Negotiate A Severance Package? Should I Hire A Labor Lawyer?
Should The Labor Lawyer Be At A Meeting With Me To Handle The Negotiations? Or Do I Just Get The Advice From Them And Negotiate Myself. I Am On Fmla And My Company On Week 4 Out Of 16 Weeks And They Called To Tell Me That My Position Has Been Terminated. The Labor Department In My State Told Me That The Company Is In Violation Because They Should Have Waited Until The End Of My Fmla Leave. I Want To Use That As Leverage To Increase My Severance Package But Wanted To Hear From Labor Lawyers If I Should Do It Myself Or Go In With A Lawyer.
I would go talk to a labor lawyer but I would not tell your former employer. In my state a company is in no way required to pay severance. If they do it is usually 2 weeks pay for each year of service.
They were not continuing to pay you when you were on leave were they?
Anyway go talk to a lawyer. If he can make some money out of this he will take your case.
