  • I was injured by roommate's neglect. She has rentals insurance with some kind of liability. Can I sue for medical bills, etc?

    I live in an apartment where we are both on the lease. I've been paying the bills, as she doesn't work. We are strictly roommates. She left a bunch of magazines on the floor, in the pathway to the kitchen. She said she was too tired, went to bed...

    Lars’s Answer

    Your roommate's insurance contract will need to be reviewed in detail. Sometimes there are exclusions for claims made by "renter's" or co-occupants. Check whether or not there is medical payments coverage available to you which will pay for your medical treatment.

    You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statement to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. You may also find it helpful to review the Legal Guides I have published on Avvo.com dealing with many of the issues you are now facing. You can access my Legal Guides through my profile page.

  • Can A judge be sued on a civil matter?

    Compared me to a close relative that had back surgery 32 years later?

    Lars’s Answer

    What is the nature of your claim and what are your damages? If you are talking about a comment made by a judge during the course of his presiding over your case, the answer is no, he has immunity.

    You seem to be pursuing a very diversified type of business and, for that, I suggest you hire a business attorney to advise you on various regulatory issues and insurance/liability issues. You should sit down with an independent insurance broker and discuss the nature of your business and secure coverage which will protect you for all of these various undertakings you are contemplating. You should have the insurance coverage reviewed by your business attorney to make sure that you are protected for everything you are doing.

    Lars’s Answer

    I suggest that you become the patient of a well-qualified OB/GYN physician here in United States and have your children's development followed closely. Legal action should not be your primary concern now. You have not shown any particular damages and hopefully there will be none.

    Lars’s Answer

    You have not stated anything which would show that you were negligent in causing this incident. Therefore, I do not think you have much to worry about in terms of your liability.

    Your uninsured relative may be able to have medical bills paid under the terms of your homeowner's insurance, Medical Payments coverage. Look at your declarations page on your homeowner's coverage and see if you have purchased medical payments coverage. If you have, your relative's medical bills can be paid through that coverage up to the limit you have purchased. That payment has nothing to do with whether you were negligent or not. That coverage is available if someone is injured while on your property, regardless of fault.

    Lars’s Answer

    Are you certain that you have 3 herniated discs directly related to your car accident? $25,000 for such injury seems very low unless there is a problem with the amount of liability insurance held by the tortfeasor. Since you have an attorney, I suggest you sit down with your counsel and discuss the status of your claim and be sure that you understand the full extent of the insurance coverage available, including underinsured motorist coverage.

    If i express That my ex boss was a strict man to work for can I get sued for defamation?

    Lars’s Answer

    Yes you could be sued, but it is very doubtful that he could win against you. Opinions are not actionable. You should make sure that you have renters or homeowners insurance coverage which will defend you against defamation claims, even if they are baseless.

  • My son is 11 and hit my neighbor's car with his scooter am I as a parent responsible for these charges

    They are trying to charge more than the damages to the car

    Lars’s Answer

    Turn this claim over to your renters or homeowners insurance carrier. Your son, as a resident relative in your household, should be covered by your insurance. I suggest you not discuss the incident nor agree to pay any damages until you have consulted with your insurance carrier and/or an attorney.

    Lars’s Answer

    An owner (you) and the keeper (your mother) can both be liable for injury sustained by the repairman.

    I would suggest that your mother change insurance companies on her home so that she will have dog related damages covered by her homeowners policy in the future. Hopefully the recent bite is minor and you will not be sued.
