    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...

  3. 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...

    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...

  6. 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...

  7. 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 injury. I agree that it would be a good idea to consult with an experienced trial lawyer in Wisconsin who focuses on represeing injured people. Many attorneys will provide a free initial consultation. He or she will be able to help you understand your rights and options, including whether you may have a claim under your own auto policy. Best wishes to you.

    Medical malpractice cases are among the most challenging cases, and the laws governing malpractice cases very greatly from state to state. In order to pursue a malpractice case, you must generally prove, through expert testimony, that the provider's negligence actually caused you specific harm. If you are interested in looking into this further, I'd recommend that you find and consult with an attorney licensed to practice in Texas who focuses on medical malpractice cases. Best wishes.

    I am sorry to hear about your problem. It is all-too common for drivers to carry only the minimum insurance required under state law, and for insurance brokers not to explain how very important it is to have adequate liability coverage. $10,000 is not chump change -- The dilemma is that you could easilyn spend that much in legal fees (if you had it) to defend this claim. I would urge you to consult with a reputable, experienced lawyer in your area, for an hour or two, who regularly defends...
