  • I fell into a manhole at my apartment complex and hurt my legs. I went to the hospital. What should I do?

    My legs were hurt but not broken. I have to rest for over a week. My husband missed two days of work. We called the water department to fix the lid as the apartment complex refused to. They claim they are filing something with their insurance but ...

    You should see a personal injury attorney who handles cases like this. You may have a solid negligence claim on your landlord. We had a similar case two years ago with a client who fell through a drain trench (up to her thigh) and obtained a good recovery for her. Call an attorney- do not try to represent yourself!

    I always think it is wise to visit with an attorney who specializes in sexual harassment cases and discuss these matters in detail and get legal advice as what would be your best course of action. An attorney can give you an opinion as to whether you have a viable claim, and what procedural steps you should take. Many attorneys handle these cases on a contingency percentage fee, taking a percentage of the recovery. There are no hourly fees and most attorneys do not charge anything for an initial appointment to discuss your case. I would suggest that you begin your search for an attorney on this Avvo website. There is a tab "Find A Lawyer" on the home page of Avvo at www.avvo.com that will help you find a lawyer in this practice area in your locale.

    Your question was posted twice. I am not licensed in your state, however, if this occurred in Texas (where I am licensed) I would tell someone in the same situation to hire a lawyer and discuss the facts of the case with them.

  • Can a co-worker fired a month- 1/2 ago for sexual harassment be re-hired again?

    Touching, sexual comments about my private parts and another female co-worker parts. Violent Verbal abuse and insulting with obscenity to us females. This co-worker is a school bus driver.

    Kevin’s Answer

    That certainly does not appear to be a good indication that the district is policing itself. Contact a sexual harassment employment lawyer and have a sit-down conversation with him or her.

  • Sexual harassment

    I was accused of sexual harassment on a day I was not at work. Any legal advised?

    Kevin’s Answer

    You really should retain an employment law attorney to assist you in this matter. It is too important to try and represent yourself.

  • Called a co-worker beautiful

    My company is trying to fire me because I called a co-worker beautiful. But she also said I look better with with my hair cut. They said this happen in May and we're now in July so this incident was not reported immediately. What do I do?

    Kevin’s Answer

    Probably not much you can do. It is my understanding that California, like Texas where I am licensed, is a hire and fire at will state. You can speak with an employment law attorney, though. It wouldn't hurt.

    Kevin’s Answer

    I am not licensed to practice law in your state but if this were to have occurred in Texas, where I am licensed, I would say that this conduct is wholly unprofessional. However, some states have initiated medical malpractice tort reform which has made it more difficult and more expensive to sue doctors for misconduct. Additionally the fact that you did not suffer personal bodily injuries would make it dubious that an attorney might file this claim, however you are certainly encouraged to speak to a lawyer about this. I would encourage you to first speak to your workers comp attorney about what happened and follow his or her advice. I handle a lot of sexual exploitation cases against doctors and I have found that doctors who are in greater positions of power (such as performing an Independent Medical Examination) abuse their power when they know the patient is unlikely to speak out. Talk to your lawyer about this.
