    If there was no accident and no injuries, then there are no damages and therefore no reason to sue. Very fortunate no one was hurt! Had there been an accident, it would depend on the specific circumstances and one would need to consult a lawyer--for example, one might ask did the dog have a history of running in the street, what are the local leash laws, was the woman speeding or driving recklessly, etc.

    My office has handled many if these cases. Much of what was said before is correct. The bottom line: THESE CASES ARE VERY DIFFICULT ...many are lost and some are successful . The cases will simply turn on what the property owner knew or should have known. Visit my website at and see all that we have written about New York slip and fall cases.

    Slip and fall cases maybe some of the most difficult. While I can appreciate the situation you are in you may not have any legal claim. In a nutshell in order to prevail on a case like yours you would need to show that the water you slipped on was there for an unreasonably long time or the store owner created the condition. That may be more difficult to prove than you might expect. Most of the time it requires testimony that the water was there for hours before your fall. You should to the Dr....

  4. My vehicle was totaled by an uninsured driver. I didn't carry collision coverage so my insurance won't cover my damage.

    That would be the most practical response. I don't know of any lawyer that would handle the case for you so you are left with trying to deal with it on your own. You will probably settle with the insurance company in court.

    In your case, there may have been violations pursuent to local and even state building codes, which may be used as evidence to prove negligence against the owner of the property. Also, it is important to seek medical attention for your injury and get documentation. Only a lawyer who understands these types of cases will be able to determine whether there have been any violations, so it is important to seek legal advice immediately. Neal Goldstein

    Put in the claim, this is usually covered, and you won't know for your policy if you don't ask or try. In general, the two scenarios excluded from coverage would be intentional accidents or those in stolen vehicles.

    As has been mentioned probably not. However, if the supermarket had knowledge that there is a high level of crime in their parking lot, it was done by an employee, their lot has inadequate lighting, security or in some way did not protect its customers with prior knowledge of a dangerous situation, then they could be held in part responsible.

    I agree with everything that has been said and just want to add that if you ultimately think you do want to switch attorneys, this is a right you have and there will not be any extra fees or costs to you. The new attorney will need to agree to work from your original retainer agreement and then work out how to split the fees with the first attorney. We've written a free booklet on this subject which you can download from the link below.

    Do not do anything without talking to a lawyer. You probably wont have to spend a lot on legal fees but considering what you spent on a franchise do yourself a favor and spend a little more. A number of franchise owners go under. What does your agreement say about selling the business? Have you spoken to the franchise developer? What are they saying about your financial issues? Rent can only be part of bankruptcy if it is in the corp. name that is filing for bankruptcy.Most of the time once you...

  10. If a child gets hurt at school and cannot afford to pay medical bills can the school be help responsible to pay bills

    Maybe. It depends on how the child was hurt. School cases are difficult but with a lawyer that has handled these matters you might be able to substantiate some negligence on the part of the school. Since these matters are difficult you should consider asking the school if they have a medical policy for the students that are hurt on their property.
