    I am sorry to hear about your injury. The only way to figure out if you have a case would be to consult with an attorney in your state with solid experience in handling these sort of cases. So-called "slip and fall" or "trip and fall" cases can be very challenging, but the best way to find out if you have a case that can be pursued legally is to consult with a good attorney. Most attorneys who handle these cases will talk or meet with you w/o charge for an initial consultation. Here is a link...

  2. Can a private investigator trespass on my land and place a recording device?

    Vermont is one of the only states with no specific statutes regulating non-consensual electronic monitoring or recording of communications. In the context of a criminal case, the Vermont Supreme Court has held that secret electronic recording of communications in a person’s home constitutes an unlawful invasion of privacy. I am not aware of any Vermont court rulings holding that recording of conversations without permission amounts to a civil violation or tort. Nevertheless, I would strongly...

    Thank you for posting this interesting question. As I'm not licensed to practice law in the state of California, I cannot speak specifically to California law. Generally speaking, however, the defense of "failure to mitigate damages" can be raised in many different types of cases. In a case in which the plaintiffs primary claim is based on negligence or even intentional infliction of emotional distress, the defense might seek to claim that the plaintiff has failed to take reasonable and...

    I am sorry to hear that you are still dealing with this after all these years. I would recommend that you immediately contact the auto insurance company through which you were insured back when this accident happened. Your insurance company will be able to confirm whether you have coverage for this accident and, if so, they should provide you with legal assistance. Hopefully, you will not need to hire your own lawyer, but you may wish to consult with an attorney licensed to practice law in your...

  5. Can a lawyer resue me for not paying on a unsatifactory judgment

    Attorneys Lundeen and Taylor have provided good advise. I have two other thoughts / comments: 1). You say that the new lawyer tells you that "we now owe" $7,948. I understand that your boyfriend may have been responsible for causing an accident and for paying damages caused by that accident, but what basis do they have for claiming you are also at fault or responsible? Did the insurance company get an actual court judgment that included you as a defendant and ruled that you, and not just your...

  6. Harrassment from tenant beneath my apt

    I am sorry to hear about this difficult situation. Attorney Lundeen's advise to contact the police if you feel unsafe is smart. You might also wish to write and send your landlord a letter detailing your complaint and concerns, and what this other tenant is doing. Your landlord has a responsibility under VT law to provide you with habitable premises in exchange for your paying rent. "Habitable" means safe, clean and fit for human habitation Another tenant creating unreasonably loud...

    I am very sorry to hear about your problem. If at all possible, I would encourage you to consult with a Vermont attorney who concentrates in family law. One way to find an attorney may be able to help you is through the Vermont Lawyer Referral Service operated by the Vermont Association for Justice. The toll-free number is (800) 585-8252, or the Vermont Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service; toll fee (800) 639-7036. I do not practice family law, but I can tell you that in most...

  8. Can i get copy of employment file

    It may depend on whether your employer was a private employer or a public (government) employer. If you are a private sector employee, Vermont state law does not give you the right to see or get a copy of your own employee or personnel file. If your employer had a written policy allowing employees to review their own personnel files, you may be entitled to ask to see it. (Check your employee manual or ask other employees). Even if there’s no policy permitting employees to review their...

  9. My son was in an accident that has left him (I think) with some bad issues.

    I am sorry to hear about your son's injury, and the difficulty you are having with seeing him. I would encourage you to call and consult with a Vermont lawyer who specializes in family law cases. Some of the things the lawyer will need to know include: your son's age; and whether you have any visitation or custody rights. If you and your lawyer determine that you have a legal right to see and visit your son, and your wife or ex-wife will still not allow you to see him, you may need to...

    I am sorry to hear about your experience. Medical negligence cases are among the most complex and challenging legal cases. Only a relatively small number of attorneys focus or "specialize" on these types of cases. Finding an highly experienced and competent attorney who focuses on medical negligence cases can also be a challenge. If you would like to look into the possibility of a potential claim against the original doctor, I would recommend that you locate and and consult with an attorney...
