Its unclear why they may be contacting you - as a witness or as a suspect. Regardless, consult with a local employment law attorney who also has some experience with criminal law. It may be nothing more than they want to talk to you about what you may know.See question
filled for unemployment 2 months ago got it approved have received about 3 weeks worth
In Ohio, if you did receive benefits to which you were not entitled, you will receive an overpayment determination that states why the payments were incorrect, the amount you owe, and instructions on how to pay the overpayment. If you receive a notice of determination of overpayment, then promptly contact an employment attorney who can advise you on how to appeal the determination. You must file your appeal within 21 days of when the overpayment determination was issued.See question

Sorry to hear about the accident, and the pain and complications it has caused you. You likely do have a viable claim. And, as one of the attorneys mentioned, a truck accident is much different than a car accident. Certain electronic and other evidence needs to be preserved by an immediate letter to the trucking company. The question in your case is what can be proven and what is it worth. You will be able to recover for those expenses, injuries, conditions, and pain that were caused by the accident, and were apart from those expenses, conditions and pain related to your pregnancy and delivery.See question

Danny should promptly schedule a consultation with a employment law local attorney. The attorney may be able to negotiate favorable terms for the termination. The company might pay the check promptly, allow the termination to be changed to a layoff, and not oppose a claim for unemployment benefits if he is arguably an employee, not an independent contractor. And yes, the first thing is to get a copy of the contract he allegedly signed. And, get a copy of the employee handbook. Best regards!See question
My son was hit and killed while riding his Harley by a driver that ran a stop signal. His 2 daughters filed the suit and won. Can creditors including the Hospital where he was taken get any of yhe proceeds?
Maybe. In Ohio, your son's estate representative can bring what is called a survivorship claim for your son's own injuries, related medical expenditures, and conscious pain and suffering before his death. Those medical expenses may be required to be paid due to mandatory statutory or contractual liens. Talk to your granddaughters' attorney on what suit was brought and did it resolve the possible medical expense liens . In addition, your son's estate representative may also bring a wrongful death action. This action is brought for the sole benefit of the surviving next of kin, which includes you as a parent, for each survivor's grief damages, loss of financial support that your son provided before his death, and the related funeral and burial expenses. Talk to your granddaughters' attorney on this also.See question

By all means, schedule an in-office consultation with an employment law attorney who concentrates his or her practice in handling employee wrongful discharge or discrimination claims. You will not know if you have a claim or not unless you consult with an attorney. While your relationship with your employer may be employment "at-will," there are so many exceptions now days to this doctrine, that it rarely applies despite what well-meaning attorneys may tell you. If what the employer did is clearly unfair, you probably have a claim or at least some leverage to negotiate a favorable separation from the company and keep your FMCSA safety ratings suitable for other employers. So, you MUST schedule an in-office consultation with a very good employment lawyer this week. Best regards.See question
a kitchen server swung open a door walking into the dining room from the kitchen. My father was behind the door ..... got knocked over and had hip surgery due to this insident.... is now in a nursing home.... there are ...
The server has a duty to your father to use the degree of reasonable care expected in a nursing home environment. He or she must be on the outlook for residents in opening a door into a dining room. The door itself must have had a window. This sounds like a viable claim, but an attorney will still need to investigate. Talk to a local attorney promptly so a letter warning the facility to preserve all possible evidence, witness statements, etc. can be sent by certified mail and fax. Its important to preserve evidence now before it is lost and memories fade.See question
A Nurse, ignoring a standing order, left my father standing alone without assistance. He fell and broke two ribs. Because of the broken ribs it hurt to take deep breaths or cough. He died of pneumonia about three weeks later.
So sorry to hear about your father. A nursing home must assess a resident for fall risks. They must have a written plan to minimize that risk. It appears that the nursing home employee violated the standing order or the fall risk plan. Most nursing home claims boil down to simply not enough staff to provide for the needs of the residents. The facility was likely short-staffed at the time. For wrongful death in Ohio, there is a two year statute of limitations. You and your family members should consult with a nursing home claims attorney who can order records and investigate this matter, and how the nursing home scores in annual surveys and inspections. Best wishes to you that justice can be acheived for your father and family.See question
My settlement is dragging on and on. Will that somehow add more value to what the total amount will be? .
The reasons why a case has not been concluded are numerous. Are you still treating? Is liability disputed? Is the medical cause of your injuries or conditions disputed? This is a question you need to discuss with your current attorney. Some claims and cases can be settled fairly quickly while others take a very long time. Depends on the case specific facts and circumstances.See question
