  • Gym's safety neglect caused me to slip and fall

    I slipped and fell in a gym sauna. It's a dry sauna but they put a rubber mat on the floor. It slid and caused me to roll my ankle. The medic came and rushed me to the hospital to check if anything was broken. Luckily it was diagnosed as a high an...

    Always speak with an attorney. It's a complementary consultation. Never speak with your potential adversary. You may have a claim, but candidly slipping in water in a sauna is properly a non starter. They mat can cut both ways, but they will argue it was for your safety. Good luck.

  • Is walmart liable?

    Mom was hit by an cigarette thing and dad was hit by grocery carts when a storm blew in at walmart parking lot. Walmart is saying it was an act of god and they are not liable. Is this true?

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Highly unlikely that Walmart can be responsible for this. Do speak with qualified IL counsel. Of course, if they are not injured then there would be no reason to look to sue them. Always speak with an attorney before speaking with your potential adversary. Good luck.

    Never a good idea to speak with your potential legal adversary. If you are not going to file any claims they just let it be. If you are interested in learning your legal rights, contact local/qualified counsel. Goodl uck.

    I was shopping at Walmart had placed a glass jar of spaghetti sauce into my cart I was wearing sandals when the jar file onto my foot and the floor it caused a laceration needing 12 stitches.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    From what you describe, Walmart did not cause or contribute to the happening of the event. You should speak to local/qualified counsel. If there is no legal case, then perhaps they will show some good will and cover your out of pocket. Good luck.

  • Do I give my lawyer the right to deal with the Ins. co. in my name as he is asking for in a signed statement or not.

    personal injury, Pit Bull attack 4 dogs serious injuries hands and legs. Settlement offer by ins. co received this .week. Asked $300,000. offered $30,000

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Correct, your lawyer processes all legal aspects (including negotiations) of your case. That is an old game that insurance companies play; offering 10% of the demand. Frequently, although not always, they do this when they consider the demand to be too high. Another antic is to make no offer. Good luck.
