    In New York, the owner is strictly liable for a dog that bites another if the owner knew or should have known of the dog's "vicious propensities." If your dog has not shown vicious propensities in the past, and you have never had problems with your dog doing anything dangerous to anyone else, the case is likely defensible. Either way, you need to notify your insurance carrier so they can investigate and provide a defense in the event you are sued.

    You likely have grounds for a lawsuit, but the pain and suffering claim will depend heavily on the extent of your injuries. If you have fully recovered, your damages will not be very significant. That is not to say there is no claim, so contact a local PI attorney for a free consult and go from there.

    I agree with my colleagues. Get copies of any papers you signed prior to the procedure and bring them to see a local personal injury lawyer. Most will provide a free consultation.

    You may have a case against the dog owner depending upon the type of employment relationship you had. Call a local workers comp atty and a local personal injury attorney to discuss. The consults should be free.

    Your question is hard to follow, but in short, a default judgment may be taken against a party who fails to appear at any time after their time to appear expires. The time to appear sometimes depends upon the type of defendant, but for an individual defendant is generally 20 days after proper service of the summons and complaint or the complaint if the initial service was of a summons with notice. Be sure not to wait too long because the default motion must be made within one year of the...

    You normally serve the amended complaint with a summons, unless all the defendants have already appeared in the action in which case the court or the parties can agree that the complaint be amended and served by mail.

    I am sorry to hear of the difficult times you see dealing with relating to Sandy. as a fellow Staten Islander I certainly can relate to your situation. There are some possibilities for recovery if you are injured at home. Sometimes, people refer to the place they live as their own house, when in fact it is a place they rent or in which they reside, but do not own. Are you the legal owner of the place where you were injured? if so, My colleagues are likely correct. If not, give me a call...

    The only way to know whether you can get out of the contract is to review the language of the contract and discuss with an attorney the circumstances leading to formation of the contract. Look for an attorney advertising a free consultation and discuss your options.

    I agree with Mr. Rothstein. You need to review the initial retainer carefully to determine whether you hired the associate or the firm. I also recommend that you request an itemized statement othe cost, usually called disbursements, so you can be sure that you are correct that they are "padded."

    I agree with my colleague. The Social Security number is not necessary to finding out information about your work and earnings. Social Security should not release your earnings statement to anyone without an authorization from you, but there are other ways to get this type of information including private investigators, Google, and other sources.
