    Military retirement pay may be treated as community property and therefore divisible. However, VA disability compensation is non-divisible in the case of divorce, and VA disability compensation is not counted as taxable income by the federal government. A veteran by waiver may also receive anywhere from 10 percent to 100 percent of his or her retired pay in the form of disability pay. It would appear if you are divorced and he was approved for a service connected disability after (or before)...

    If you were injured in an auto accident in Hawaii, you will need to obtain and fill out a No Fault (PIP) benefits application form from the insurance company. PIP insurance normally pays for medical expenses, lost wages, etc. that result from your vehicle accident. The law generally requires you to have sustained a certain amount of medical expenses before you can file a claim for mental anguish or suffering. Hawaii law also limits the amount of time you have to file a claim in court. You...

It requires them to take reasonable care to eliminate known dangers by excluding visitors from the area or warning them of the danger. Florida Statute states "the person or entity in possession or control of the business premises owes a duty of reasonable care to maintain...

    I agree with the above advice, but wanted to caution you, these matters become very complicated. Your insurance company will provide you with a lawyer to protect your interest if you are sued by the injured party. This lawyer can advise you regarding your rights and obligations. You may also seek consultation from a private attorney (not hired and assigned by the insurance company) regarding your options to pursue a claim for damages either against the at-fault driver, or perhaps your own...

    Unfortunately no, the Feres doctrine (named after the 1950 Supreme Court case) prohibits military members and their family members from suing the government due to medical malpractice. Unfortunately this doctrine serves to bar service members and their families from collecting damages for personal injuries to the service member. However, the Feres doctrine does not bar claims if negligence results in direct injury to a family (non-service member)member due to medical negligence or other...

  10. How much notice does a tennant have to give when moving out if there is no lease

    If the rental agreement contains no provision as to duration of the tenancy, the duration is determined by the periods for which the rent is payable. If the rent is payable weekly, then the tenancy is from week to week; if payable monthly, tenancy is from month to month; if payable quarterly, tenancy is from quarter to quarter; if payable yearly, tenancy is from year to year. Therefore Florida Statute Section 83.57, F.S. explains termination of tenancy without a specific term: if rent is...
