  • Passenger of driver at fault?

    I was a passenger of the car that was at fault. The driver I was in the car with rear ended the vehicle in front of us. Because I was reaching into my purse at the time of the accident, I hit the dashboard and the seat belt was of no help at that ...

    Best thing to do is to get the medical treatment you need and contact a personal injury lawyer to pursue a claim. Sounds like a serious case, so you don't want to go it alone. Feel free to call me if I can assist.

  • 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.

    You may have a product liability claim if the product was not safe for use or not fit for its intended purpose and caused you damage. These are hard cases and can be expensive to pursue. When did you first notice problems? Did you continue to use it after noticing hair loss? Have you talked to a doctor? Do you have before and after pictures showing the hair loss? These are some of the questions an attorney would need to know before telling you if you have a case.

  • I caused an accident at a gym. -Am I responsible for paying medical bills, or anything? -Should I hire a lawyer?

    Scott’s Answer

    The gym probably has medical payments coverage on its policy that would apply to cover the person's expenses, even if the gym didn't do anything wrong. I don't think you need to hire a lawyer yet. But if you have liability coverage, contact your insurer, explain what happened, and your company can handle it. They won't pay if they find the gym's policy applies. The gym insurance may be primary just because it happened there.

    Scott’s Answer

    If the other driver was at fault, his/her insurance should cover you. If the policy was minimal coverage that does not fully cover your damages, you can make a claim on your own policy for underinsured motorist (UIM) benefits, if your policy provided a greater amount of coverage.

    There is only a 2 year statute of limitations, so talk to him about why he says this. If he failed to file suit on time, it may be malpractice.
