    That is because the accident happened in NY and NY law applies. You need a NY lawyer.

    Lawyers never like to answer questions like this with an absolute yes or no. A corporation is liable for the negligence of its employees on the job. If there is no gross negligence or any other reason to "pierce the corporate veil" and you have maintained your business as a proper corporation, the shareholders of the corporation should be protected. However, you should consult a good attorney right away. Lawrence J. Marraffino Florida Bar Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer www.ljmpa.com

    I think that you have a very strong case. The bouncers are agents of the bar owners. Their actions were done in the course and scope of their employment and the bar owners are likely liable for their actions (as will their insurance company!) Further, if the bouncers had criminal records when hired, the bar can be sued for what is called negligent hiring and retention. I am handling such a case right now.

    You need to talk to your lawyer. He/she has an obligation to communicate with you. The most common complaint people have about lawyers is lack of communication. Do not be afraid to call and ask about the status of your case. When you signed your contract, you signed a "Statement of Client's Rights" one of which was that you have the right to ask at reasonable intervals how your case is progressing. Call!!! Lawrence J.

    You need to talk to your lawyer. There are consequences if you just disappear. Your lawyer will come after you as well as the school board for money. You made a commitment to your lawyer when you brought him your case. The case must have had some merit for a lawsuit to have been filed. An attorney generally will not invest that kind of time and money unless he or she thinks the case has merit. Talk to your attorney about a settlement. Lawrence J. Marraffino Gainesville Board...

    You need to get legal help in your area IMMEDIATELY. Mercury is one of the WORST insurance companies in Florida and has many complaints against it with the Department of Business and Finance. See a lawyer ASAP!!! They should file what is called a "Notice of Civil Remedy" so you can possibly get fees. I have put a link below so you can bring it to your lawyer. Many lawyers do not know of this remedy. Lawrence J. Marraffino Gainesville Accident Lawyer

    Call your attorney and tell him you are going to fire him if he does not call you back. You have a right under Florida Law that you signed when he took the case that they must give you reasonable updates. IT DOES NOT TAKE FOREVER TO GET A CHECK. Ten to twenty days is the norm.

    The correct term is "quit claim deed" and yes it can be done. However, I do recommend you have it done by a lawyer. I have seen them done improperly and in the case of someone who is dying, you will not be given a chance to correct it. Also, be advised that you do have to pay documentary stamp tax at the time the deed is recorded. The cost of the tax is .70 per $100.00 of any mortgage that may be on the property. If the property is free and clear, the tax is just .70. Lawrence J....
