    Tracy’s Answer

    If the employee was injured on the job, she has rights under the workers' compensation law. In order to get an understanding of her rights and responsibilities in this situation, she should consult with a lawyer with specialty in this area of practice. Most lawyers offer a free consultation.

  • Can I sue the dealership?

    I took my car in for a oil change and tire rotation 2 days ago. Today I noticed they left 2 lug nuts off of my front tire and when I went to make sure the rest were on and tight some were just barley hanging on. What should I do or what can I do?

    Tracy’s Answer

    I once represented a client who was injured after his wheel and tire came off the car when the tire shop didn't tighten the lug nuts. As the others have said, because you are fortunate to have not been injured, I don't think you would succeed in suing the dealership but they should fix their mistake.

    I would strongly encourage you to not trust that the insurance company will be compelled to act in your best interest. Instead, get a free consultation from a lawyer who specializes in car wreck cases (not necessarily a TV advertising lawyer who doesn't actually go to trial) and find out what your rights are. Better safe than sorry. I wish you the best of luck with this situation.

  • I was lied to by a recruiter for a trucking company on how much I would earn, can I sue because it was a diff amount

    Me and a co-driver were lied to about how much we would make per mile by a recruiter to intise us into quitting our jobs and come to their company and when we received our first pay it was lower then what we were told. Can we sue? We have him on a...

    Tracy’s Answer

    There is an old saying along the lines of anyone can file suit against anyone but that doesn't mean you will win. You could sue the trucking company to seek the higher mileage rate for the past miles you have driven but in an employment at will state, your employer can fire you for a good reason, a bad reason or no reason, if they do so without violating laws against discrimination and the like. I wouldn't want to work for a company that lied to me.

    Tracy’s Answer

    Workers' compensation law is technical and can be confusing. Like the others have posted, I strongly encourage you not to rely on an insurance adjuster to be fair to you. Get a free consultation from an attorney who specializes in workers' compensation cases.

    Tracy’s Answer

    I'm sorry to hear about this. I suggest you use the Avvo "Find a Lawyer" tool to find a lawyer in your vicinity who specializes in employment discrimination cases. This isn't my area of specialty so please bear that in mind but I understand you have to file a charge of discrimination with the EEOC within 180 days of the date of last discrimination before you can take legal action. Bear that in mind as well.

    Tracy’s Answer

    Rule 1.4 (a) of the Alabama Rules of Professional Conduct says "A lawyer shall keep a client reasonably informed about the status of a matter and promptly comply with reasonable requests for information." I suggest you send a letter to the lawyer requesting an appointment to sit down and discuss the status of the case.
