    You really need to speak with an attorney and not deal directly with the insurance carrier. There are many factors, which dictate how much compensation you will and should receive. There are also strict statutes of limitations for no fault filings for medical coverage, wages and out of pocket related expenses. When a car hits a pedestrian or bike, liability is usually quite strong. Consult an attorney! You can contact my office if you like.

    The terms of the agreement define the relationship. If the agreement was that you would volunteer and not receive a paycheck, then that is the key aspect of the agreement, which makes you a "volunteer" rather than an employee entitled to a paycheck. It sounds like they have you doing more than you agreed to as a volunteer. I would discuss that with your supervisor, let him or her know that you concerned that you do not get the same benefits and protection that employees receive while you are...

    Disorderly conduct is a violation, not a crime. If the employment question (read it carefully) asks if you "have ever been convicted of a crime," you can answer no. Also, the disorderly conduct please may be sealed after a year, (may) be sealed after a year. You should always answer truthfully to the questions! But, read the question carefully. If you have any doubts, consult an attorney.

    You need to first address the criminal charges filed against you. Your criminal attorney should try to convince the DA that your issues with your sister are civil in natureand not criminal. If you are sucessful in getting the criminal charges dismissed, you can consult a civil rights attorney to review the matter. However, the fact that your sister made complaints gives the police probable cause and qualified immunity to make an arrest unless there was some fairly obvious problem with your...

    I agree with my colleagues and would add that you cannot make a defamation claim exclusively based on what the sex harraament plaintiff puts in her complaint filed with the court.

    consult an attorney immediately. There are tolling provisions for statutes of limitations, a mental disability may be one such provision. You cannot sue a court, you can only appeal such a ruling.

    I agree with the other practitioners that you need to file a notice of claim with the NYC Comptroller within 90 days to preserve your right to sue. I also agree that you should retain an attorney to look at this matter. You should be aware that generally an employer (in this case, the City or the contractor running the shelter or providing security) is not held liable for the intentional/criminal acts of an employee. However, if the intentional tort was committed in the scope of the employee'...

  10. In January I had a 2 level fusion in my lower back. Surgery seemed to go well until a couple months later. Lawsuit?

    Above all, you need to consult a good medical malpractice attorney immediately. Surgical malpractice can be very difficult to prove and you will need a good expert (ortho surgeon) to establish the malpractice. And, you can certainly sue a particular Dr. and hospital though other physicians acted properly and perhaps caught a problem another Dr. missed.
