there has been repairs that were needed in my apartment that i made the landlord aware of and he never fixed them. my 3 year old got hurt and had to get stitches due to the landlords lack of concern and diligence.
If its personal injury claim, you go to Supreme Court of the County where you live or where the accident happened or where the Landlord's Corporate address is located.
More importantly, go to a personal injury lawyer for a free consult to see if you have a case and how much, if anything, its worth.See question

Hire an investigator to locate the criminal and sue him. If you suffered injuries, your own insurance may provide coverage - but seek it ASAP as their are strict time restrictions.See question

A minor has until he turns 18 before the Statute of Limitations begins, generally. If you have an attorney, call and call until you get him or her on the telephone. Don't take no for an answer. The status of your case should not be confusing or unclear. If you cant get in touch with your attorney, you can always fire him and get a new one. Good luck.See question

I agree with my colleagues. Highly unlikely to win, but you MAY have a cause of action. Doctor must causally relate and an attorney must be willing to lay out the money in hopes of a settlement or verdict. Best of luck.See question
How to I go about getting answers to my requests for admissions? The defense has not been cooperative.
I disagree with my colleague. Requests for Admissions that are not answered in a timely manner are automatically deemed ADMITTED under the Rules of the Court in New Jersey. Below is the relevant Court Rule. You should probably seek an attorney though - civil litigation is complex.
4:22-1. Request for Admission
A party may serve upon any other party a written request for the admission, for purposes of the pending action only, of the truth of any matters of fact within the scope of R. 4:10-2 set forth in the request, including the genuineness of any documents described in the request. Copies of documents shall be served with the request unless they have been or are otherwise furnished or made available for inspection and copying. The request may, without leave of court, be served upon the plaintiff after commencement of the action and upon any other party with or after service of the summons and complaint upon that party.
Each matter of which an admission is requested shall be separately set forth. The matter is admitted unless, within 30 days after service of the request, or within such shorter or longer time as the court may allow, the party to whom the request is directed serves upon the party requesting the admission a written answer or objection addressed to the matter, signed by the party or by the party's attorney, but, unless the court shortens the time, a defendant shall not be required to serve answers or objections before the expiration of 45 days after being served with the summons and complaint. If objection is made, the reasons therefor shall be stated. The answer shall specifically deny the matter or set forth in detail the reasons why the answering party cannot truthfully admit or deny the matter. A denial shall fairly meet the substance of the requested admission, and when good faith requires that a party qualify the answer or deny only a part of the matter of which an admission is requested, the party shall specify so much of it as is true and qualify or deny the remainder. An answering party may not give lack of information or knowledge as a reason for failure to admit or deny unless stating that a reasonable inquiry was made and that the information known or readily obtainable is insufficient to enable an admission or denial. A party who considers that a matter of which an admission has been requested presents a genuine issue for trial, may not, on that ground alone, object to the request but may, subject to the provisions of R. 4:23-3, deny the matter or set forth reasons for not being able to admit or deny.
Requests for admission and answers thereto shall be served pursuant to R. 1:5-1 and shall not be filed unless the court otherwise directs.
The party who has requested the admissions may move to determine the sufficiency of the answers or objections. Unless the court determines that an objection is justified, it shall order that an answer be served. If the court determines that an answer does not comply with the requirements of this rule, it may order either that the matter is admitted or that an amended answer be served. The provisions of R. 4:23-1(c) apply to the award of expenses incurred in relation to the motion.See question
I suffered neck and back issues, but have not had surgery. They told me they could not get a better offer than 17.5 thousand for my injuries. I told them my copays over the past 6 years were probably 5k. Whst do you think about this settlement....
lots of variables still unknown... but if you don't want to settle, your other option is trial.
Also, yes, usually, once you sign a settlement agreement, that's it. You cannot ask for more money later.See question
I wanted trial. Judge or company response was to mediate. If I give my deposition b4 mediation and not agree to settle, can I use my deposition against them at trial or not?
it can be used AGAINST you and not INSTEAD of trial testimony (except in rare cases). It is more advantageous for you not to give deposition testimony first.See question

Those are serious charges. The outcomes could arrange to anything from dismissal to jail time. It depends on the circumstances of the case, the evidence against you, the arguments in your favor, the legal arguments and other variables. You definitely should find an attorney.See question

I have a clean recorded. Never been in trouble before. I was on my motorcycle and crashes and was close to a lady when I crashed. Will I go to jail?
Its possible, but if this is your first offense and you are 17, you have a chance to avoid jail. Seek an experienced attorney ASAP. Many give free 30 minute free consults. Good luck.See question
