Do I Have A Legitimate Lawsuit For Premise Liability?
I Live In A 12 Story Apartment Building. Recently, Power Was Cut To The Building To Allow The Utility Company To Make Some Repairs. The Generater Did Not Turn On The Emergency Lighting, So The Hallways And Stairwells Were Pitch Black. With The Use Of A Flashlight, My Family Walked Down 11 Flights Of Stairs. On The Third To Last Stair, I Mis-Judged Where I Was And Fell Down To The Landing. I Went To The Er, Had An X-Ray, And Have A Sprained Achilles Tendon. Do I Have A Lawsuit Based On The Fact That The Building Is Required To Provide Emergency Lighting In Their Hallways And Stairwells?
When The Apartment Building Management Company Contacted Me To Create A Report, They Informed Me That Building Maintenance Verified That The Generator Was Running And Lighting The Building. It Was Not, And We Have Neighbors To Verify This. Thanks For Any Help And Advice You Can Provide!
For a number of reasons, don't listen to s and d e. It sounds like you may have a valid claim, though it is likely not very large because your injuries are minimal. The apartment has a duty to provide you lighted stairs, regardless of whether the generator company failed to provide the apartment a working generator.
1. File the claim with the management company, submitting all medical bills.
2. If they balk at paying them, call a lawyer.

Can My Sex Offender Husband Get Joint Custody Of Our Daughter?
Ok... I'M A Dumbass, And I Know This. I Just Need Legal Advice.
I Married My Husband For What I Thought Was Love. I Got Pregnant Right Before We Were Planning To Get Married. My Daughter Is Now Four Months. I Found Out At 5 Months Pregnant That He Had Another Woman Pregnant As Well. His Son Was Born 9/19, My Daughter Was Born 10/8. He Was Sleeping With Her For At Least The First Six Months Of Our Marriage. He Also Slept With At Least One Other Woman. He Vio'D His Parole By Being Online Talking To Other Women. Because Of All Of The Above, I Am Divorcing Him.
I Would Like To Know If He Would Still Be Granted Joint Custody Despite The Charge?
The Charge In Itself He Served A Year For. He Was Caught Driving With No License, With A Girl That He Claimed He Did Not Know Was 16. A Year Ago, When We Married, I Believed His Story, But Now Seeing His True Colors And Knowing His True Intentions... My Belief Is Now Wavering. She Said That He Fingered Her, But In All Honesty He Was Railroaded As Far As The Trial And All Actions. Regardless, He Has A &Quot;Corruption Of A Minor&Quot; Charge, And Is The Lowest Tier Offender. By His Probation, He Really Isn'T Supposed To Be Unsupervised With My Daughter, But I'M Not Sure The Exact Extent. I Know That Right Now, He Is Never Alone With Her. She Is Always In Daycare Or I Am Home.
We Live In Ohio.
Thank You In Advance For Any Assistance, And As I Said Before... I Know I'M A Dumbass.
the first thing you have to do is to forgive yourself for being blind to who he truly was.
we all do stupid things, we just have to remember to forgive ourselves, ok!?
next thing for the to-do list, is to get some free legal aid advice...you gotta start somewhere, and don't let the guy take a pass and tell you, you need to get a lawyer, ok!?
now, after getting a heads up from various sources, go talk to the district attorney. see what kind of advice or opinion you can get out of him.
ask them all about what kinds of options do you have to keep your child safe
you may be able to petition the court and do it yourself, or at worst, with the advice of a lawyer as opposed to turning over all your rights to a lawyer. but that decision will be up to you
be brave, stay strong
Legal Advice, Horrible Lawyer?
My Daughters Dad Filed For Custody Of Our 2 Year Old Daughter Because He Thought I Was Dating Someone He Doesn'T Like. He Has No Grounds For What He'S Doing. I Hired A Lawyer, Who Has Been To Busy To See Me Or Answer My Calls. As Of The Day Before My Scheduled Court Date, I Still Had Not Spoken With Her. Her Office Called Me The Day Before Court And Told Me Court Had Been Pushed Back And That She Would Call Me When It Was Rescheduled. Since I Didnt Have Court, I Went To Work. When I Checked My Phone, I Had All These Texts Asking Where I Was. Apparently Court Had Not Been Rescheduled, And I Missed It. I Tried Calling My Lawyer, Who, Of Course, Didnt Answer. I Went To Her Office And Was Treated Rudely By The Same Woman Who Told Me Court Was Rescheduled. I Was Once Again Told, &Quot;We'Ll Call You.&Quot; I Looked On The County Court Website And Saw Where There Was Court Held And That There Was A Child Support Memorandum. That Is All The Information I Have Since My Lawyer Cant Be Bothered With Me. I Cant Afford Another Lawyer, And I Feel Stuck. What Do I Do Next?
When a court date has been CONTINUED, you should get a notice with the CONTINUANCE date from your attorney. Your attorney will call you when she has that info. When a continuance date is requested, the attorneys office calls the court to notify of a continuance (basically taking that case off the docket/court schedule for the day), opposing counsel (your ex's attorney) and ask that the date be changed. Your attorney and the other attorney agree on another date.
Then the Paralegal types up a "Continuance" (and a proof of service), takes it to the court to be FILED.The Paralegal will send you, your ex's attorney a copy showing the new date. It sounds like your ex's attorney, and your attorney have not agreed on a date yet, and filed the proper paperwork. Check once a week with your attorneys office. Be patient with the office, as a Family Law assistant, we get screamd at all day by clients who dont understand that this process can be lengthy, and complicated. We dance as fast as we can. We cant help that perhaps Opposing Counsel is not responding becasue he wants to be an azz (and they will just because they can...), the courts are backed up, etc. That is not an excuse to being rude.
All you can do at this point, is wait to hear from your attorney. There are many reasons why a new date has NOT been set, so dont worry. Your Attorney HAS to notify you of the new date, by law, so when she gets it, you will get a notice of when to appear. Be patient, Family Law is very complicated.
Government Assistance & Custody Rights?
If You Have A Child And You'Re No Longer In A Relationship With The Father (Father Resides In Nevada, Never Married, But Signed On The Birth Certificate), You Apply For Assistance Ie: Food Stamps Out Of State (Idaho) From Which The Father Lives, Will They Come After Him For Child Care?...And Will He Gain Custody Rights?
If So, Would Those Custody Rights Force The Person To Move Back To The State In Which The Father Resides?
ANY custody or support hearings are under the jurisdiction of the child's home state. If child lived in Idaho, its entire life, all court involvement will be there. The state will file for support, if mom uses any benefits.
He does not get custody or other rights, unless he in fact FILES in court (in Idaho). He will not get CUSTODY unless there is some reason to prove mother being unfit/ harm to child. Getting food stamps does not qualify as being danger to child.
He cannot force anyone to move anywhere...unless the fact of baby lived in Nevada long enough that Nevada should have been the home state.
I Want To Know About Slip And Fall Settlements.?
I Slipped And Fell At A Mcdonalds Last January, While 28 Weeks Pregnant With My Twins. I Immediately Went And Got Checked Out, Everything Was Fine Until The Next Afternoon When I Went Into Pre Term Labor. I Ended Up Spending 4 Months In The Hospital. And I Am Still In Unbearable Pain Almost A Year Later That Confinds Me To Bed Most Of The Time. I Might Need Back Surgery Later On, And I Just Feel Depressed All The Time. The Drs Told Me It Was A Miracle That Both Of My Babies Are Okay. I Cant Remember Very Well, Because The Medication They Had To Give Me Put Me In A Phsyco Fog. Why Is My Case Taking So Long? And Im Really Curious About How Much Is A Good Amount To Settle For? Thanks.
You haven't provided enough information for anyone to even be able to tell if you have a valid complaint against McDonalds.
WHY did you fall? Just because you fell inside the business does not mean the business was negligent.
IF the business did act negligently (meaning the employees knew full good and well that the floor was wet but they still failed to put up a wet floor sign), then you have to prove they are responsible for your damages.
They would be responsible for the medical bills from the day of the fall. They would NOT automatically be responsible for you going into pre term labor, or spending four months in the hospital. Your pregnancy was considered high risk by virtue of you carrying twins. By carrying twins, your balance was compromised . . . and this was not the fault of McDonalds so a potential future jury might think your fall was as much the responsibility of your pregnancy.
Why on earth did you have to spend four month in the hospital? If you were 28 weeks with twins, and twins are usually born at 36 weeks - it seems bizarre that you would have needed to remain in the hospital for much over two months.
Again, even if you are able to prove that McDonalds acted negligently and was responsible for your fall - your case is not one I would want to take to trial because it would be a nightmare to prove your damages. Their lawyers would focus on the fact that you went to the hospital after the fall and you checked out fine. That things went south for you 24 hours later doesn't mean it was because of your fall and it will be your burden to prove differently. (This means you will spend a fortune on expert witnesses . . . and this amount would come out of your potential future recovery.)
Just based on the very little bit of information you have provided, I don't think you should expect to get all that much money.
