What Is The Average Settlement Amount For A Slip And Fall?
Sprained Ankle And Knee.
The judge or jury depending on the type of trial assesses actual losses (demonstrable losses like time lost from work, emergency room bills, etc.) Then it may consider non-monetary losses like, pain, or loss of companionship etc.
Then they consider fault based on a percentage basis. So if they find the settlement for all things should be 8,000 dollars and decide the business or property owner is 65% to blame the actual settlement is 5,200 dollars.
Sprained ankle and knee - sounds like small claims court stuff to me. No significant claim at all unless there is a whole lot more you haven't shared.
The average slip-and-fall claim is $4,000. (NFSI)
The average cost of a slip-related injury exceeds $12,000. (Wausau Insurance Co.)
The average cost to defend against a slip-and-fall lawsuit is $50,000. (NFSI)
Remember that these average include many very significant fall injuries, including life altering injuries so the numbers get skewed somewhat. Most settlements are quite small and some very large. The vast majority of people with minimal injuries do not seek a claim outside of medical costs which is usually handled under their liability insurance with no suit being filed.
If you have suffered actual injuries you should never rush settlement of the accident claim. If you do and if you suffer a relapse or find more extensive injuries later there is no going back.
Best of luck

He has the right to have the court appoint him a lawyer. All he has to do is call the court house and ask for the public defender's office. They will provide him with a lawyer free of charge.
Can Someone Please Help Me With My Legal Research?
I'M Doing Research Regarding The Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. The Issue Is Whether Or Not A Caregiver Is Allowed To Give His/Her Qualified Patient An Ingestible Form Of Marijuana Due To Complications That Prevent Him From Smoking It.
So Far, I Know That It Is Legal But I Only Found Out Because Of The Q&Amp;A At The Michigan.Gov Website But I Still Can'T Find Any Cases To Back It Up. Can Someone Please Help Me By Giving Me Key Terms To Type In The Westlaw Database? I'Ve Been Searching For Hours :(.
I authored the brief that resulted in what was for a time the leading Michigan Court of Appeals case on medical marihuana in Michigan (People v Redden). The Westlaw search query that you want to use is "medical +2 (marijuana marihuana) +2 act & ingest!" (without the quotes).
This search query brings back 8 cases, including the case People v Carruthers, 301 Mich App 590; 837 NW2d 16 (2013). In Carruthers, the Michigan Court of Appeals held that using marijuana brownies violated the law because they did not contain "usable marijuana" under the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. The Court reasoned as follows:
“By excluding resin from the definition of ‘usable marihuana,’ as contrasted with the definition of ‘marihuana,’ and defining ‘usable marihuana’ to mean only ‘the dried leaves and flowers of the marihuana plant, and any mixture or preparation thereof,’ MCL 333.26423(k) (emphasis added), the drafters clearly expressed their intent not to include resin, or a mixture or preparation of resin, within the definition of ‘usable marihuana.’ They therefore expressed their intent not to include a mixture or preparation of an extract of resin. Consequently, an edible product made with THC extracted from resin is excluded from the definition of ‘usable marihuana.’ Rather, under the plain language of the MMMA, the only ‘mixture or preparation’ that falls within the definition of ‘usable marihuana’ is a mixture or preparation of ‘the dried leaves and flowers of the marihuana plant . . . .’” Id.
So to answer your question, the manner in which the marijuana is ingested into the body is not the determinative inquiry. Rather, the dispositive question is whether an ingestible contains "usable marijuana" as defined by the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. My understanding is that ingestibles are generally created using resin, which Carruthers says violates the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. According to the holding in Carruthers, an ingestible would not violate the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act if but only if it constituted "a mixture or preparation of ‘the dried leaves and flowers of the marihuana plant . . . .’” Id.
I would also offer the following two caveats. First, be careful relying on legal opinions such as the Q&A at the michigan.gov website because it is impossible to determine who wrote the content or when it was last updated, and it will not constitute a defense if the information is incorrect, which appears to be the case in this instance. Second, the Michigan appellate courts have essentially eviscerated the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act and continue to do so with extremely narrow interpretations of that law. So always be sure to err on the side of caution by drawing the most conservative conclusions that you can when interpreting this law or the cases that construe it. While this is not what most medical marihuana clients / users want to hear, it is the reality under the current Michigan judiciary. I hope this of help. Good Luck with your research.
When A School Searches You Can You Refuse To Comply Until You Speak With A Parent Or Lawyer?
I Know That A School Can Search You Or Your Belongings Without Probable Cause. All They Need Is Reasonable Cause. But I Was Wondering If You Told Them That You Refuse To Comply With Them Until You Speak With A Lawyer Or Parent If They Could Do Anything. Isn'T It A Persons Right To A Fair Trial With Legal Representation? Thank You For Answering.
They are under no duty to wait for a lawyer - not even the police have that duty. As for your parents - better check with them before you pull this kind of stunt. If one of your parents gets pulled out of work because you've decided to "stand on your rights" to hide your cell phone, my guess is that you're a dead duck.
Schools have the right to search you and your belongings for contraband. If you will not cooperate, they can call the police and have you subdued.
A school search does not fall under the right to a fair trial - best start reading Supreme Court decisions, little lawyer.

Please Help- I Just Bought A House With Asbestos On Pipes?
Hi I Just Bought My House A Week Ago. My Home Inspector Found A Small Spot Of Asbestos Around The Heating Pipe While I Was In The Process Of Buying The House. I Had Another Home Inspector Yesterday And Found More Evidence Of Asbestos.
The Seller Did Not Disclose Any Asbestos Information. What Can I Do ?
Can I Remove The Asbestos Myself? Can I Sue The Seller?
Dont even attempt to chip off or move the asbestos yourself. You can have it removed by qualified people. Dont endanger yourself and your family to such harmful material. If that house was built in earlier than the 70s then most likely the asbestos was included in the original plan. If it was built earlier and seller did not disclose info then you can surely sue that person. Asbestos is very dangerous.
