  • Should I file small claims court for this contractor?

    I had a carport build by a contractor a month ago. In the contract, he specifies that if there are any leaks, i should pay in full the remaining balance when job is complete and the leaks will be fixed afterwards. I have called and written e-mail...

    Adam’s Answer

    Because there are many laws in Florida that govern deficient work performed on a house by a contractor, you should speak to an attorney in your area who may be able to assist you with the claim and/or give you advise. Your contract may have provisions within it that limit your rights and/or specify where you may file a claim. Gather all your records together and speak with an attorney to find out your rights.

    Best of luck!

    AND KEPT MY CAR TILL I PAY HIM. NOW HE WONT LET ME HAVE MY CAR OR MY BELONGINGS HE SAID I OWE HIM INTEREST. WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS??

    Adam’s Answer

    Did you draft a Contract or Written Agreement? Is there anything in writing confirming the agreement as he stated. Is the Title of the vehicle still in your name? There are a lot of details that need to be provided to allow an attorney to advise you as your rights.

    Adam’s Answer

    That probably isn't the best manner in which you want to find an attorney. You should do your own research (You can do so on Avvo, as well as other resources) and contact attorneys individually to discuss your case in depth and determine what attorney will be right for you. Just like you should be careful selecting an attorney based solely on a billboard, you shouldn't do so based solely on who responds and/or jumps for an opportunity like you have just offered.

    Be wise and make your decision with care.

    Best of luck!

    Please explain how this works? Also when does the Attorney make more then the Client in any case? Senerio: Settlement $100,000.00 BUT a lein of $63,000.00 goes to Medicare. You didn't recover this for medicare. The Auto ins Rep is paying to Med...

    Adam’s Answer

    First, Medicare will reduce their lien! Second, your recovery is premised upon that lien. You got paid because of medical bills that were incurred (and bills that were paid).

    Gross recovery is the total settlement.
    Net Recovery is what the Client gets after all bills and costs are paid.

    I agree with the other attorneys, if you are represented by an attorney, the attorney can negotiate down the lien. Discuss it all with your attorney. Don't sign anything until you understand everything!

  • Is this a minimal monetary lawsuit?

    I just ate raw hamburger from fast food restaurant by mistake. Also i showed manager and took picture of burger. Later next day i went to hospital for stomach pain and bathroom runs. My head been hurting lately..now wat? How will my body react t...

    Adam’s Answer

    The gentleman above is correct.

    If you received salmonella or some other sickness due to unsanitary conditions the restaurant created because of a failure to properly maintain their restaurant, then it is possible that you could recover. Proving the salmonella or contaminant was contracted at the restaurant is very difficult without others having gotten sick.

    If you are simply sick because your body didn't properly digest raw meat - which you possibly ordered on your own and should have recognized after a simple bite, you are going to have a troublesome time collecting.

    What have the doctors said? Did they determine what caused your sickness? If they did not prove you contracted salmonella or some other sickness directly related to food, you may be in trouble in terms of collecting.

    Good luck!

    Adam’s Answer

    In addition to taking action with the police and reporting him, seems to me as a practical matter, the first thing you should do is change all of your passwords and logins, etc. and let your cell phone provider know they are not to give him access to your information.

    Sorry to hear about your situation. Best of luck.

  • Can you file a delayed accident report as a hit and run if the person who agreed to pay damages stops cooperating?

    Adam’s Answer

    Go to the police station. Tell them you want to make a report. They may allow you to.

    I would also find out about her body shop and see if they are reputable. They should still give you warranties as to the work that is done. It should (ideally) still be professional service. Tell your body shop to match their price, and see if they will do it.

    Hope this works out for you!
