What Are The Chances Of Someone Winning A Premises Liability/Slip And Fall Case?
My Neighbor Is Suing My Dad For &Quot;Tripping&Quot; In Front Of Our House On The Sidewalk For Fifty Thousand Dollars. We Live In Philly So Most Of The Sidewalks Aren'T The Nicest. However, For A Lack Of A Better Term, I Do Not Think That Our Sidewalk Is &Quot;Tripping Material&Quot;. Our Family Has Been Living In The Neighborhood For About 13-14 Years, And We'Re Very Nice People. No Problems Until The New Neighbor Moved In Two Years Ago. I Honestly Really Think This Whole Thing Is Sketchy, The Neighbor Seemed To Already Have Leg Problems (Limping) Before Supposedly Tripping And Suing Us. Our Homeowners Insurance Is Obviously Helping Us Take Care Of This, But Can Somebody Tell Me What The Chances Are Of Someone Winning A Case Like This? Please Help, Thanks.
The answer hinges on whether there exists damage to the sidewalk which 1) was serious enough to warrant fixing, 2) was obvious enough for the average homeowner including your father to notice, and 3) was ignored by your father. Without knowing the details of the fault(s) in the sidewalk, even damages created by natural causes such as tree roots can be blamed on the property owner where the stretch of walkway is situated.
Specifically, city and other government agencies are expressly exempted from primary civil responsibility for injury. In short, except under one condition, any accident caused by the tenant's or property owner's negligence in maintaining or repairing the sidewalk rests with that party. [Psichos v. Sauvion, 529 A2.d, 945, 946 (Pa. Commw. CT., 1987}]. However, if your father could argue that the roots or other damage resulted through the fault of any government agency that originally built or repaired the sidewalk with the trees or any potential structural threat preexisting and therefore being expected to anticipate the necessity of future maintenance, the primary responsibility for the damage would shift to the government agency involved. [Golden v. City of Philadelphia, 57 A2.d at 430 (Pa. Commw. Ct., 1948)]. "Where the city itself has created a hazardous condition through its contractors or architects, the property owner has no duty to eliminate the condition." [Psichos, 520 A2.d at 946.]
Your dad might want to consult an attorney before signing any settlement, although $50,000 is a relatively conservative amount even though I think the law in Philly is absurd and I'm on your side, because this woman might have a prior history of similar litigation and may try to sneak in a clause awarding her "related" medical expenses for life.
As A Rape Victim, What Sort Of Lawyer Should I Seek For Legal Advice?
All I Can Find Is &Quot;Assault And Battery&Quot; And &Quot;Sexual Harassment&Quot; As Far As Attorneys Go.
I'M Looking For Some Advice And Some Answers To Questions I Have About My Case Such As,
-If This Goes To Court, How Will My Case Hold Up?
-With The Information I Have, How Likely Is It That He Will Be Prosecuted?
-What Is The Legal System Like, And What Would Court Be Like?
I Really Want This To Go To Court, And I Really Want Him To Be Prosecuted Because I Am Not The Only Victim.
By The Way, I Live In Oregon.
Contact a local sexual assault/rape/women's crisis center in your area and ask for a referral to an attorney who can answer your questions. If there is a law school nearby you might want to contact them. They sometimes offer law clinics often at low or no cost to people having legal questions on a range of questions including yours.
You want the case to go to court. Some prosecutors offices have victim advocates. You may want to contact the DA's office and inquire about it. The sexual assault/rape/women's crisis center I mentioned earlier may be able to provide advocacy services for you
A couple of things about going to court in a criminal manner. Understand the decision to do so is not yours. As a victim you are not a party you do not having in a criminal matter. The case is between the state and the alleged offender. The police determine if they have probable cause to make an arrest. The prosecutors office perhaps with the involvement of a grand jury determines if enough evidence exists to bring an indictment against the alleged offender; and then whether they believe there is sufficient evidence to win a conviction and thus justify going to trial.
Let me say in advance of any trial or verdict if the state fails to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt as is required in a criminal prosecution it does not mean you were not raped. It is not a complete exoneration for the perpetrator although the media and his entourage will see it that way. A not guilty verdict in the American system is not a finding of innocence. Trial courts in the US do not make determinations of innocence only of guilt. What a not guilty finding means is that the state didn't prove to level of proof required by law. It does not mean the incident (the rape) didn't occur
Even after a not guilty in a criminal trial you can still a civil action against the rapist and generally if a preponderance of the evidence is in your favor you will win. A preponderance means who have a majority of the evidence in your favor. Or your evidence weighs at least an iota or a scintilla more than his. Now a few states may require clear and convincing evidence in some civil actions. It's a more stringent test than the preponderance one but not nearly as strict as the beyond the reasonable doubt one of criminal prosecutions.
good luck and also if you need any help dealing with emotional trauma from the effects of the rape or anything related to it ask for referrals for social workers or other appropriate resoures from the rape/sexual assault center

Prosecuting Parents For Child Abuse..?
No, I'M Not Being Abused, But I'M Writing A Story About A Woman That Takes Her Mother To Court For Child Abuse. I Was Wondering If It Was Possible For The Child To Get Money (Or Anything Else) If The Prosecution Wins. I Plan On Asking Real Lawyers And People Who Might Have Done Such, But I Thought I Might As Well Run It By Here Too. Have You Ever Heard, Been Through, Or Somehow Been Involved In Anything Like This? Your Answers Are Very Appreciated!
No, I haven't heard of a successful case with an adult and their parent. I have seen a parent pay restitution as part of a criminal case to their abused child.
I suppose that it wouldn't be too far fetched to award a judgement to an emancipated minor in civil court. Odds in real life are slim, but legally it could happen.
As a more legitimate adult, I don't think it would happen at all. For a number of reasons, the least of all being that any statute of limitations on assault would run out before the now adult would sue. So unless you filed on your 18th birthday and you'd been beat severely (and it was documented) within two years or whatever, you wouldn't be fast enough.
Does Anyone Else Think Drugs Should Be Legal?
I Think All Drugs Should Be Made Legal Because It Would Sort Alot Of The Problems Out With It For Example Not Sending Them To Prison But Sending Them To Rehab Or Clincs To Be Treated What Are Your Views On This??
Making drugs legal will sort out some issues, maybe. Or, on the other hand, it could create a host of other problems. It all depends on the culture and random chance. People do studies on this subject. Trust me, there are unbiased people out there trying to fight for what is logical, because in the end what is logical policy is what will help the most people be civil.
If we made drugs legal then a lot of people would start doing drugs, would become complacent, and the economy would really come to a screeching halt. We would be taken over by another government and their policy. You might say, "No, we will fight back and win." Well, unfortunately a lot of people who do drugs suffer from physical ailment and psycholgical delusions. People in this state are surely not good for fighting for one particular cause. Are they good at fighting? Well, that is debatable. I wouldn't think a person who is intoxicated is better than someone who is sober and alert. Meth? Well, maybe.
To say that it cleared up a lot of problems in portugal seems very questionable. Ever hear of lies and propoganda? How do you know that drug money didn't influence those statistics? If the government in portugal is receiving drug funds I am pretty sure they are willing to sugar coat the facts and pack some skeletons in the closet.
I do agree that we should send them to rehab and clinics, but unfortunately that still requires government money. Ultimately, the point is money and where it is being used. In the end, though, the same amount of money is probably being used. Whether or not an experience in prision, rehab, or a clinic is more successful is all reliant on the numbers.
I personally would say that it is best for this country to stay sober, alert, and to work at maintaining our status in the world. If we don't, we are open to being terrorized by extermist groups and other powers who want control. It is really up to you. Do you want freedom and due justice as USA offers or are you willing to live by another countries doctrine? Even then, if you legalized drugs in that country they would be taken over by another group seeking power.
Ultimately, if you kept going down this path, you would end up being ruled by drug lords and dictators, and the one blatant fact about these factions is that they do not have much compassion.
We, as people, not only as a country, need to be alert, sober, productive, and ahead of the game. I am sorry but love does not cure all. You can be the most loving person in the world but that won't change the fact that there is always someone out there who has no clue what love is and is fueled with the concept of greed and selfishness. They will destroy you, and your love for them will not change their mind. Matter of fact, they will laugh at you, right before they shoot you in the forehead and kick around your dead body.
