I was in car accident where a vehicle hit me and the other driver moved their vehicle to a parking lot 2 blocks away that was not in sight. They said I was at fault but he left the scene. How does this affect outcome?
As stated previously, if the driver came forward and the police and you were able to view the other vehicle, the fact that he parked a couple blocks away is not in itself something that will be relevant to deciding you was at fault. Report the case to your insurance company and consult with an attorney if you are concerned about your injuries.See question
The school is not working with us to provide our daughter with what she needs to get a proper education
You need to be more specific as to your needs. Depending on your needs, a non-attorney advocate may be more appropriate (generally less expensive). Most such attorneys will need to review any evaluations completed regarding the student's disability and the current educational services being provided (if any).See question
Totals out the car for damage...can I go after his insurance since he's at fault for the difference owed to the auto loan and the 5000$ down payment I just put down on the car in december?
It probably is simpler to give the claim to your insurance and get them to either pay for the damage or give you a check for the car. If you have replacement value on your coverage, then use that. Your carrier will subrogate against he other driver to get the money back including any deductible you have.
If you were hurt, then seek the help of an personal injury attorney ASAP. He will help you address these issues.See question
Asking on behalf of my sister. She is a college student (Bucks County Community College) with CRPS, a nerve condition causing severe pain and intermittent loss of mobility. She has missed a few classes due to her condition and is being told by her...
As noted, the school must make "reasonable accommodations" for her disability. What is "reasonable" requires analysis of the facts of her situation. Blocking of handicapped spaces might be a violation of the ADA in certain situations, particularly if no alternative is provided and the blocking is longer than a short period of time.
However, lateness might be a "time management" problem or it might be that your sister needs additional support so as to address the issue. Depending on a lot of factors, the school might or might not have to arrange for that support. there may also be other government programs that may be available to her to help with that support.
She needs to speak with an attorney to address these issues.See question

A teacher dropped my bag and cracked my laptop. She said she will not pay for it. People saw as well when she dropped my bag.
I agree with Mr. Asselta that the matter should first be discussed with the school administration. However, if you are under the age of 18 and the computer is your property, then you parent(s) must be the one to press the issue. Until you turn age 18, the law presumes that everything that "you own" really is owned by your parent(s) or legal guardian(s).See question
The car is paid off. No loans against.
You can have more than one "named insured" under the policy (which is probably very common). However, one of those names will have to be the owner of the vehicle (except where the vehicle is a long-term leased vehicle owned by a finance or car company). There are some other exceptions, but I suspect you are not asking about any situation that would fit those facts.
You may be better served by calling your insurance agent and asking him how to do what you really want to do, e.g. keep ownership, but let your child use the vehicle and they insure it.See question

One fact that you did not mention is how much money is involved for taking this "extra" course. Even if you can't use the additional credit toward your degree, and even if you can prove it was the school's mistake, it may not be worth the expense to fight the loss.See question

Mr. Console is correct. Although you reported it to the staff, you certainly have no case if you were not injured or cannot prove that you were injured from this accident. the sooner you seek medical attention for whatever injuries you have, the easier it is to prove that you were injured from THIS accident and not something else.
The next issue is to prove that the staff knew their was water on the floor BEFORE you fell or had not checked the bathroom in so long that they should have checked sooner and - if they had checked - would have seen water to clean up. They don't have to check every minute or probably every 15 minutes. Thus, unless there was something about the water on the floor to indicate that it had been there for a significant amount of time (e.g. drying around the edges), or you have a witness who states they told them about the water BEFORE you fell; it will be difficult to find that they did anything wrong regarding your fall.See question

It seems that you suggest that you have graduated. If that is the case, then the next question is how has that one grade affected you? Can you prove that it cost you a job or getting accepted in a graduate school? Without some injury, even if you can prove discrimination, you may not recover anything other than "nominal damages" where the jury awards you $1.00 and thereby your attorney will probably get paid something.
That is not to say don't pursue the matter, but you should consult an attorney to review all of the facts to determine whether there is more to this matter than a bad grade that no-one but you will care about in 5 years.See question
