Do I Have A Legal Case? Help?
I'M A Member At One Of Those Famous Gyms, Yesterday I Went To Workout And I Brought My 2 Yr Old Along To Their &Quot;Daycare&Quot; (2 Hr/ 3 Dlls). About An Hour After One Of The Babysitters Came To Tell Me That My Little One Was Crying, Since It Was Almost 8 Pm, I Thought Maybe She'S Tired, When I Went To Pick Her Up They Gave Me Her Stuff And That Was That. When I Came Home She Was Still Crying, So I Took Off Her Clothes To Check And I Saw Her Elbow Was Very Swollen. We Took Her To Th Er And Found Out That She Has A Fractured Elbow. Today I Found Out That She Will Need To Have Surgery Next Week To Fix It. She Has Health Insurance But I'M Really Upset That None Of The 3 Or 4 Babysitters That Were There Mention Anything About A Fall Or Nothing, I Mean What If She Hit Her Head Or Something More Serious, Now They Have Sec Cameras But I Know It Will Be Impossible To Get The Tape. Now I Spoke With A Lawyer Today And He Said That B/C I Don'T Know Exactly What Happened And B/C Of The Terms & Conditions Of The Contract There'S Not Much I Can Do Except To Send Them A Letter To See If They Will Let Me See The Tape, But That More Likely I Will Never Get To See It.
What Do You Think I Can Do?
A fractured elbow and your attorney is telling you that 'maybe' they'll let you see the tape? Uh-huh!
First, get another attorney, one who specializes in personal injury. This is one of the few times you want a ruthless shark in your corner. Try http://www.martindale.com, which is the site for Martindale-Hubbell, the national attorney listings. Martindale will let you search by specialty (in your case, personal injury), and also by grade (you want someone with an A grade who will work on contingency.) The *attorney*, NOT you, should be the one to write a letter, if any. An attorney who's filing a case could send a subpoena for the tape and they'd *have* to produce it.
If by some chance a really good attorney tells you that he can't sue the gym, then I'd call the police and see if you can file a report for suspected child abuse. (I might do it anyway.) THAT will light a fire under their rear ends. I think it is VERY suspicious that someone came to tell you that 'she's crying and we don't know why', but didn't realize a child had fallen hard enough to fracture her elbow? Something smells here. I'd tell the police you have concerns that your daughter may have been manhandled or otherwise injured by one of the employees, and tell them what happened.
I do think it's imperative that some action be taken, though. My husband is a police sergeant in our city, and one of the worst calls he was ever on was at a daycare. A four year old (admittedly, one who was a very clingy sort) had run up to one of the workers to wrap around his leg. He shoved her away, and she fell backward, hit her head, fractured her skull, and died. Sure, he's in prison now, and it was an aberration, but that doesn't bring the child back. Someone in that daycare is not being responsible, and they need to be stopped before a child is hurt even more seriously than yours.
I was a teacher before I became a paralegal, and I used to run our school daycare one evening a week. I'm telling you now, there's NO reason that a daycare professional should not be aware that a child has fallen and injured him or herself. Someone did, and I'm betting that someone was responsible for the injury and trying to cover it up, thinking that your two year old would not be able to tell you.
I wish you the best of luck and if I could, I'd pass some really heavy bricks for you to lob at these peoples' heads. There's simply no excuse. But I'm so sorry that both you and your daughter have to go through this.
Will Legal Aid Help Me If.....?
I Tell Them There Has Been Physical Abuse In My Marriage? I Am In A Verbally Abusive Marriage And I Live In Michigan. Someone Told Me That If I Tell Legal Aid That My Spouse Had Ever Been Physically Abusive To Me, They Will Not Help Me With Legal Services For A Seperation/Divorce Etc. Does Anyone Know If This Is True?
Legal Aid organizations are terribly under-funded. So, they have to establish priorities for the types of cases they handle. Each one sets different priorities--so, you need to check with your local Legal Aid.
Should I Have A Lawyer Create A Contract?
I Just Accepted A Contract Position And Wanted To Create An Informal Contract Spelling Out The Terms Of Our Agreement (Compensation, Travel Agreement, And Living Arrangements). Is This Something A Lawyer Should Do Or Is Any Contract Enforaceable By Law (Self-Made Or Legal)
A contract is not automatically enforceable by law. There are many things that the courts will not enforce in a contract which is why you may want to retain an experienced attorney to negotiate the terms of your employment agreement.
However, generally speaking, the employer is responsible for preparing the employment agreement not the employee, and the employer generally wants to dictate the initial form of employment agreement which is why I find your question somewhat confusing. If you accepted a contract position don't you already have an employment agreement? That is a necessary element if you are a contract and not an at-will employee and it is standard for an employer to have you sign it prior to commencement of your job.
Ask your employer to send you a copy of your employment agreement in advance (perhaps they were planning on just dropping it in your lap and asking you to sign it on your orientation day). If you have any questions or problems with its terms you may, at that point, want to retain an attorney or you can assume that your employer will act in good faith and answer your questions and address any concerns.
Going To Court For Child Support Without A Lawyer?
Do I Really Need A Lawyer The First Time In Court For Child Support
Bring last years tax return , this years pay check stubs and a big bottle of lube.
EDIT: Bullshit aside , Child support is calculated as a % of your income. A lawyer can't do much to change that unless you plan to challenge paternity.
Does Allegations Of Fraud Automatically Cancel Irrevocable Power Of Attorney?
If An Attorney Is Alleging Fraud But Has Not Proved It Does This Constitute An Automatic Cancellation Of An Irrevocable Power Of Attorney That One Holds Over The Attorney'S Client.
Unless the attorney can prove fraud on your behalf, I doubt very seriously if he can automatically cancel of irrevocable power of atatorney that you hold. This, in my opinion, would be a matter for the Court to decide and not the attorney. His client obviously made you his irrevocable power of attorney for a good reason. Check out irrevocable.
Us General Attorney....?
I'Ve Been Trying To Catch Myself Up On The Whole General-Attorney-Firing-Federal-Prosecutors Situation (I'M Working On A Report) And I'M Just A Little Confused.
What Exactly Did The Prosecutors Do? I Know It Has Something To Do With The Abuse Of The Patriot Act, I Just Don'T Know What Exactly. Also, In Your Opinion Should Or Shouldn'T The Attorney General Resign, I Personally Think He Should Resign B/C All Of This Happened Under His Watchful Eye...But I Would Like Some Other Opinions Please!
The attorneys were fired because they were not "loyal Bushies" according to the e-mails released by the White House and Justice Department. The difference between Clinton's firing of all of the attorneys and this set of firings is that these 8 attorneys were fired mid-term. Not that this isn't allowed. Thsy can be fired any time. One problem, however, is that GOnzales didn't just tell the truth and say "we were trying to find people more loyal to Bush". Instead he lied and said he didn't have any conversations about it when in fact he had an entire meeting, etc.
Now none of this is illegal, still, but it is sleazy, and clearly he is lying to AMerica. Since America now knows that the person in charge of making people obey the law is a liar, does that damage his ability to lead the justice department? THat's for you to decide, but here is my opinion:
1) the fact that he is a liar is bad
2) the fact that he condones domestic spying is worse
3) the fact that he condones torture is worst of all
