  • Do I have a legitimate premises liability claim against them?

    I tripped off of a curb in a parking lot. The curb was unpainted, and I did not see it. My fall resulted in a fractured heel, surgery, and months of recovery. Subsequently, my doctor has now discovered a shoulder injury they are attributing to ...

    Scott’s Answer

    You have a claim, but these are hard cases. Was lighting an issue? If it was at night or low light conditions, an unpainted curb is worse. You didn't indicate when this happened, there is only a 2 year statute of limitations. Are you sure it's on private property and not part of a municipal sidewalk? We would need more info to be able to help you, but the short answer is it sounds like a legitimate case.

  • Can I sue the seller for not disclosing major and dangerous issues about the house?

    I rented a house and was planning on buying it. The seller insisted the house was being sold "as is". Also said multiple times " did not need inspection". I asked what issues the house has. She filled out a sellers disclosure form that there where...

    Scott’s Answer

    If she knowingly failed to disclose problems, lied or misrepresented on the form, you have a claim against her but these are difficult cases that a very fact-specific. Generally speaking, it's "buyer beware" but if she lied on the form it could be fraud.

  • Can I file a lawsuit against this Dentist for medical malpractice? Should I go get a second opinion from another dentist?

    I am concerned that a dentist has screwed up my teeth. When I first came in and got x-rays he said I needed a filling because of a cavity. I asked him if I could get it taken care of that same day, and he said yes. Halfway through, he said it woul...

    Scott’s Answer

    You can sue if another similarly-credentialed dentist reviews the records and films and says that this dentist departed from the standard of care, and if your damages are substantial. But your first priority should be getting to a new (competent) dentist, endodontist or other specialist to finish the job properly and make sure you're ok. Good luck

    I'm sorry for your loss. Generally speaking, if the agency departed from the standard of care and caused injuries that contributed to her death, you would be able to sue upon getting a report from an expert (the appropriate medical specialty) that there was a departure from the standard of care. More facts would be necessary to evaluate this particular case.

  • I fell down the steps & broke my foot leaving a condo unit on the same premises I live on. Do I have a case in this situation?

    I live in a different unit from where I was injured. All units are individually owned

    Scott’s Answer

    Depends on what caused you to fall. For example, if you fell because the stairs are uneven or the handrail isn't right, you probably have a case. Depends on the facts

  • Been renting a room for 7 months and just found out from another tenant that landlord isn't property owner of the property.

    The landlord has been taking our rent money and he's not property owner nor the landlord, due to some research from the tenants. The landlord gave us a lease when we moved in and continues to want us tenants to pay him rent money. Can you give m...

    Scott’s Answer

    Your question is confusing, but if the "real" landlord still wants money after you paid rent to another person who is not entitled to the payment, then call the police. But you're going to need to get clarification as to who is the landlord and how does he/she expect to be paid. It should be stated in the lease.
