    I am sorry to hear about your son. I hope you have sought out appropriate medical care and remain focused on treating the injury. Initially, you should contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you with this case. What you have is a potential case based upon premises liability. Such cases can be very difficult to pursue due to the many liability issues and various defenses that are available. A personal injury attorney will assist you in establishing that there was some...

    I agree with my colleagues that a lawsuit would not be warranted on the facts presented. Return it to the place of purchase and have it replaced.

    I agree with my colleagues that most policies generally call for reimbursement. However, you may want to try to negotiate the with the carrier and try to reduce the amount of reimbursement. Particularly if the med pay disbursed did not cover the total cost of the care provided.

    The question seems to be does the unlicensed nature of your vehicle impact the availability of your insurance coverage. You need to discuss this with a local attorney who can review your auto policy and provide advice. Use Avvo to locate an attorney in your area. Many offer free consultations. Good luck!

    The answer to your question may be contained in the language of the Lease. Some Leases include language that allows the Landlord to seek an accommodation for a set period of time when performing repairs. If there is no language, some reasonable rent allowance may be in order depending upon the length of time of the construction. You may want to contact your local Bar Association and discuss this matter with a Landlord/Tenant attorney. Of course, you could also use Avvo and find a good...

    The online resources are useful for general purpose entity formation. However, they have their limitations when the corporate entity is for a specific purpose. As my colleagues indicated, the Operating Agreement is a key document to the LLC formation. The advice of your CPA, who I presume has knowledge of your needs, should be followed. An attorney can advise you as to the requirements involved. I would recommend that you take the time to meet with an attorney and then decide which course is...

    The facts you present do not appear to support a claim for "Medical Malpractice". You may have a case for negligence, fraud and/or misrepresentation. Given the nature and amount of damages, small claims court would be your best option. I do not think the matter would appeal to an attorney on a contingency fee basis. Use Avvo to find a litigation attorney in your area. Some will assist you, for a nominal fee, in preparing for your day in small claims court. Good luck!

    Medical malpractice cases require an expert to state that the care provided fell below certain standards for the profession. Your presentation of the facts does not allow for an effective evaluation in regards to the care provided. More detail would be required. I would suggest that you use Avvo and locate a Personal Injury attorney in your area to consult with. Good luck!

    Attorney Sweat raises valuable points in reviewing your case. The issue of notice as to the condition on the floor will be in play. The factual arguments can work both ways. That is to say the pool facility may have had a duty to correct the condition, however, you had a duty to act reasonably. Sandals on a wet floor may impede your ability to prevail on this point. Damages will require you to show in a definitive manner that your injuries were, here is a medical term, "exacerbated"....
