    To properly assess your situation, your question requires more detail. How old is your son? Were you accompanying him? How exactly did the employee instruct your child to use the escalator? This could well be an assumption of risk situation. These are very facts dependent cases, so either provide significantly more detail, or consult a local attorney. A good first step though would be to file a report with the department store itself if you haven't already done so.

    I concur with my colleagues. What you're describing is known as self-help (alleged criminal issue and that court order aside), and landlords typically cannot engage in this type of behavior. To legally evict you, your landlord must start a summary proceeding to properly obtain your removal.

  3. Can a landlord allow back-rent payments to accumulate without notice and then collect after four years?

    Before going any further, my initial recommendation is that you need to consult with counsel. You've given a very basic fact pattern that could be significantly impacted by the contract language itself. That said, "I didn't see it in the contract" is seldom an acceptable defense. I would hope that had counsel represented you in the underlying transaction that he or she would have pointed this term out to you. Whether you had counsel or not though, knowing and understanding the terms was your...

  4. My husband left everything to me which is less that $125,000. Do I need to probate the will? My will is a duplicate.

    It's possible that the will needs to be probated, but it's impossible to say based on what you've provided. Although you indicate the estate is worth $125k, what is it comprised of and how are the assets held? If most of the assets are jointly held or extra-testamentary, then it's possible the will may not need to be probated. As the other responding attorneys suggest, you should consult with counsel to determine what needs to occur under your circumstances.

  5. What can i do if my former employer choked me

    File a police report to begin with. You're query, however, leaves out much detail, including what provoked your employer, were you injured, etc. If you were injured, you may have a basis for commencing a personal injury action against the individual who assaulted you, as well as the company. You need to speak with local counsel about your options, and to assess whether your fact pattern warrants a possible action.

    If this is a legitimate question, perhaps you would be well served to state your inquiry with a bit more clarity. Your post as stated makes little sense.

    If you're looking for a specific referral, I'd recommend either contacting your local bar association or going to the AVVO find an attorney section. Yours seems like a fairly straight forward case that, with evidence of the garage's negligence, any competent litigator could take on.

    Unless the statute was tolled for some reason in the other other, it's likely that you've lost your ability to bring an action. Statutes of limitations are one of those things which are sancrosanct in law. If you missed filing by the deadline imposed by the statute, it's highly unlikely the statute will be extended for you. It's you and your attorney's responsibility to figure out the appropriate venue, statute of limitations and move on from there. Mistakes aren't sufficient cause to avoid a...

  9. If I am owed over $5000.00, can I file a claim in small claims court to recoup part of what is owed?

    The answer depends on where the defendant lives. Small claims actions need to be brought in the locale where the defendant resides. Depending on the locale, the amount that can be claimed will either be $3,0000 or $5,0000 (town & village courts are $3k, while small claims in city courts are $5k). First determine where the defendant lives and then check with the court clerk of that locale to determine the permissible amount.

  10. How can I sue someone for money they own me if I don't have their address?

    Given the amount at issue, small claims is your best option - if you can locate him that is. The easiest way to track him is to send a letter to the tenant's last known address and mark it as return receipt requested. If he provided the post office with his forwarding information, this should provide you with the necessary information. Once you know where located, you must commence the small claims proceeding.
