  • Will I have trouble becoming a licensed physical therapist with one DUI on my record 15 years ago?

    1998 was the DUI

    Ryan’s Answer

    'Sealing records' in Nevada will remove it from your record, and you can legally deny that you were convicted. It does take several months to complete though, so the sooner you start, the better.

  • Can I sue for pain and suffering medical bills if at work delivering mail fell down broken steps

    I delivered to a house as I was coming down the whole wooden step came out and I stumble down aim pregnant to rush to hospital aim ok and the baby too no broken bones out of work for 5 days only could be on Tylenol so have to stuffer .

    Ryan’s Answer

    If your job is as a delivery person, it appears that you have a worker's compensation claim rather than a personal injury claim. Call a worker's compensation lawyer, they usually have free consultations.

    And do it FAST since there are usually limitations on how long you have to report an injury (like ONE WEEK).

    Ryan’s Answer

    As Christian noted, the costs of the attorney and the economist/CPA required to PROVE actual lost income and lost opportunities in court will far exceed $5,000.

    Generally, you have to be talking about big numbers (ie. hundreds of thousands or millions) to pique a lawyer's interest in a slander/libel case. Even the most obvious situations of defamation become bitter, nasty cases.

  • What happens if your probation is revoked after 15 months of a 3 year term for Grand Larceny?

    My husband violated probation and his PO is wanting his probation revoked. Does this mean he goes to jail to serve the 3 years?

    Ryan’s Answer

    Yes, if the judge decides at the hearing he has been non-compliant.

    I always warn my clients that your PO *runs your life* and if there is anyone you need to keep happy it's your PO. In the case of personality conflicts you have two choices: be humble and submit to the PO or go to prison.

  • What can happen if I get charged with petty thief? I stole something worth $3.50 and its my first offense.

    Right now, the store knows nothing about me, except they know what I look like due to the cameras. I was about to steal a protein bar worth $3.50. But I didn't. The clerk came up to me and told me to show her my pockets, but she found nothing caus...

    • Selected as best answer

    Probably not.

    STOP THINKING ABOUT STEALING. That will usually decrease your misplaced attempts at stealing, and is pretty much guaranteed to stop any criminal charges for stealing. If you need motivation to not steal watch Les Miserables or something.

    Ryan’s Answer

    If you are serious, you would begin by buying the medical records to provide them to a medical malpractice attorney in the county (or state) where the hospital care was provided.

  • I did not receive a promotion after retaliation for calling the compliance hot line. It is hostile, can I file a claim?

    I was verbally promised a promotion when the HR Director left. I turned a job down because of the offer. Several staff including myself called the compliance hot line (it states no retaliation), myself included due to a hostile work environment....

    Ryan’s Answer

    Tom summarizes some good points, but it is very difficult to prove a connection between the *verbal* discussion of the promotion and whether or not you ultimately got the promotion. There are many hard workers who do their jobs without discipline, who at times don't get promoted. That's not unusual or illegal. It would take some serious digging to prove that your call to the hotline was directly related to your being passed over for the promotion. I would be surprised if any evidence of that existed, and since I'm a pessimist about litigation tactics I would assume any such evidence is manipulated or destroyed (meaning: you have to gather your evidence before opening claims up!).

    If you voluntarily quit your job you probably won't get unemployment.

  • If someone is pressing charges but knows nothing about me, should I just go on with my life? I'm 18 and its for petty theft

    38 hours ago (or close to that) I was planning on stealing a $3.5 candy bar, I put it in my pocket, but then I took it out. Later, the clerk came up to me and told me to show her my pockets. So I did and nothing was there. She left saying sorry an...

    Ryan’s Answer

    The movement to your pocket could be considered an attempt crime if they could show you meant to permanently take it... but buying the bar shows you didn't mean that.

    I think they're just trying to scare you away from that store. While it's not impossible, charges are unlikely.
