    Contact a personal injury attorney who can help you maximize the settlement value for the injuries you suffered. Settlement value will depend on the severity of your injuries, how much work you lost, whether you will need medical care in the future, whether the injury will hinder your ability to earn income in the future, whether you had any preexsiting injuries to the same area of your body, and your (or your attorney's) ability to confidently and skillfully negotiate with the casino.

    Your legal remedies are strictly under the workers' compensation laws, unless your employer did not have workers' compensation insurance at the time of the injury. Consider consulting with a local workers' compensation attorney about your situation.

    The insurance company can sue you to recover what they paid to settle a damages claim you are responsible for. Definitely ask for substantiation of the dollar amount they are demanding. Use your negotiation skills with them. Tell then you can't afford to pay the full amount and see if they will take a lesser amount. See if they will take payments. Depending on your income you may qualify for free legal aid from a local legal aid society.

  7. I was fired from my at will employer ( worked 3 years ) with no write up's, for working off the clock.

    The company should have a policy prohibiting working off-the-clock because it is illegal in California to do so. Employers are justifiably sensitive when they learn employees have worked off-the-clock because the law prohibits it. One question I have is whether you knew working off the clock was a violation of company policy when you agreed to do it? As an at will employee, it is not unlawful to terminate you because you violated company policy. The firing of your manager for the same reason...

    Probably not. As an at-will employee, the firing does not sound unlawful. So, the remaining question is whether announcing the fact and the true reason you were fired over the intercom for your coworkers to hear unlawful? If you were truly "burning leads" - whatever that means - then the announcement of this true fact over the intercom is not illegal. It is not within the "zone of privacy" to be protected from public disclosure, unlike for example your medical information, or other...

    No. Your former girlfriend's constitutionally protected autonomy privacy rights guarantee no court or person can ever force her to have an abortion. You MIGHT have a SLIM chance of getting a child support adjustment from a family law judge or some negotiated agreement with her regarding custody and support under the circumstances, if you can prove what you are saying is true and was the cause of the pregnancy. But you would need to hire a family law attorney to evaluate that slim chance for you.

    Medi-Cal eligibility is determined by the California Department of Health Care Services. You should check directly with them about eligibility in your exact situation so you are not again accused of receiving an overpayment of public benefits. They have a website with frequently asked questions about Medi-Cal.
