  • On a bad haircut who do I sue the stylist, the company, or the corporation ?

    On march 4 2014 I walked in to Smart Style salon for a hair cut. When asked what I wanted I said I only want the ends off. I want all the split end off. The stylist asked how much did I want off I said 2inches. As she sat me down I asked her i...

    Yes you can sue any of the above. HOWEVER, you should also consider IF you SHOULD sue. When considering if you should sue, you must consider your reasonable damages. If you win the lawsuit, your award will be based on the damages you suffered. If this was a typical haircut situation, your damages are probably not worth the cost of filing the lawsuit, filing or responding to discovery (if any), missing work for court, parking, etc. The better solution in this situation may be to contact the supervisor, owner or corporation and negotiate a free (or a few free) haircut(s). If you believe that your damages in this particular situation were way more than in a typical haircut situation, then you should consult an attorney and let him or her know the specific details of your situation.

    I hate to second guess another attorney but from what you described (without any more facts), it does not sound like it's too late for an MRI. Additionally, in my opinion, the primary goal at this point should be to get you healthy and back to your regular self. Sounds like you may want to get a second opinion from another lawyer and provide that attorney with all the details so he or she can give an honest assessment and options. That attorney may or may not agree with your current attorney. However, it is always your option to seek out a second opinion if you are not comfortable with the recommendations of your attorney. Good luck with your case. And I hope that you feel better soon.

  • My husband and I have been approached about doing a reality show, do we need legal representation?

    do we need legal representation to star in a reality show?

    Dale’s Answer

    I would say that you absolutely need representation. I have negotiated these types of contracts in the past and the language can be very tricky and can lead to unexpected and unfortunate situations if it is left in or is not adequately negotiated. Good luck with your reality show!
