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
My Friend Got Arrested/Charged With Felony For Graffiti....How Do I Help Him Find An Affordable Lawyer?
One Of My Work Buddies Got Arrested For Griffiti Last Week And Charged With A Felony Count....I Advised Him To Get A Lawyer But He Doesn'T Have Any Money Nor Any Family Support.
I Went Through A Similar Thing 2 Years Ago But Luckily Had The Financial Support Of My Dad To Hire A Big Time Criminal Defense Lawyer Who Was Able To Reduce My Felony Charge Down To A Misdemeanor And 3 Years Probation.....
If I Don'T Help My Friend Then He Is Just Gonna Go To Court And Plead Guilty, He Is Young (18) And I Don'T Want To See Him Throw His Life Away And Become Another Statistic...Are Public Defenders Any Good?
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.
Who Offers Free Legal Advice Online?
Jim, in short: no one will offer free legal advice online. If you have a legal issue that you are curious about, you can certainly research it -- but an attorney will not simply give you legal advice online. There are too many specifics involved in every case (including yours) for adequate advice to be properly provided online. If you need free legal assistance, there are many legal aid organizations (yes, including Filipino attorneys, and those that speak Tagalog) that can give you legal advice for free or for a nominal fee. To find one of these legal aid organizations, I suggest that you start by looking up your local Bar Association (that's an organization of local attorneys). You can ask the Bar Association to refer you to legal aid organizations specializing in your area of need (ie: Tagalog, landlord-tenant issues, etc.). Good luck!
Will Deployment Stop Divorce And Custody Proceedings?
I Am Getting Ready To File For Divorce And I'M Sure There Will Be A Custody Battle. He Doesnt Know Im Filing Yet, Although He Knows I Have Been Unhappy For A Long Time. He Has Been Looking Into Deploying Early. If He Does This, Does It Mean That The Divorce And Custody Battle Will Be Put On Hold Until He Gets Back?
I Am Worried That Once I File He Will Deploy Just To Hold Onto Me Longer.
I Want To Move On With My Life, Please Help!
No it won't put the proceedings on hold, but it will still take a much longer time to process as he will be taking care of his end from where ever he is - he will not be denied his legal rights. In fact, he will be granted more courtesy by the court due to being deployed.
Your best bet is to discuss the divorce with him as soon as possible in hope you two can settle before he goes.
I seriously hope in your divorce you do not lose sight of how it will affect your child(ren) - and that it would be in their best interest for you to do whatever it is possible to ensure they continue a loving, strong & equal relationship with their father - regardless of how the two of you feel about each other. Please try your best not to use the child(ren) as pawns in what you apparently are perceiving as a possibly bad divorce process.
It doesn't have to be a "battle" - the only people that turn it into one is yourselves.
What Is The Average Cost Of A Divorce Attorney?
Originally, I Wasn'T Going To Hire An Attorney For My Divorce. However, Things Have Gotten Complicated Over The Year Long Separation From My Husband. I'Ve Never Worked With An Attorney Before And I'M Not Sure Really What To Expect Cost Wise.
I Spoke With An Attorney'S Office That Was Recommended To Me. They Charge $265/Hr And If I Decide To Retain The Attorney That I Have My Consultation With, He Requires A $1500 Retainment Fee - He Requires The $1500 Before He Begins Work On My Case. When I See Him For The Initial Consultation, I Must Pay The $265/Hr Rate.
Does This Seem Reasonable? What Have Others Paid?
That is an average hourly rate for a divorce attorney. The total cost for the attorney's fees in your case will depend on the nature and complexity of the divorce. If there is a lot of fighting over custody and visitation issues, then I've seen bills climb into the range of hundreds of thousands of dollars. If it's a simple divorce that only involves dividing property, then it shouldn't be more than a couple thousand. The $1,500 retainer fee should be applied to the lawyer's services, it's just an advance payment for future fees.
