My former attorney's investigation revealed certain facts about my case which were included in the complaint. I don't have personal knowledge of these facts, but I believe them all to be true. My deposition is coming up and I wondering how I shoul...
If you don't know then you can say you don't know. A deposition is not a pop quiz on every fact in your case, it is the defense's chance to determine what you personally know.See question
I worked for a health care company in Los Angeles. This company did not pay for 2 months. Yesterday I sent email asking why they don't pay me. They answered that they don't have record how many days I worked. This company also promised me by email...
You can file a wage claim with the DLSE for the unpaid work. This is a free process that does not require you to have an attorney and so is ideally suited for situations like yours. I wish you luck.See question
I was in a relationship for about 2 1/2 - 3 years where my ex knew I was predisposed with mental and psychological conditions. Every time I would communicate with him in regards to infidelity, he would shut down, had angry outbursts, or anger that...
I am extremely sorry for what you went through. However, lawsuits based emotional abuse in the course of a romantic relationship almost always fail. They are also almost always a horrible idea as you will spend the next 1-2 years reliving everything that happened through litigation. The defense will have the right to examine you and review all your medical and psychiatric records. Even if you succeed, you will likely wind up with a judgment that you can't actually collect, making the entire process and exercise in futility.
What happened to you is horrible, but suing is probably not the answer and I think it is very unlikely that you will find counsel willing to represent you on a contingency fee basis. I truly wish you the best moving forward and I hope that you are able to find happiness.See question
Is it legal to not provide care to patients who go to the e.r and being on illegal drugs?
It depends whether there was a medical emergency and whether you suffered harm as a result of not being treated. I would discuss this matter in more detail with a local attorney. Good luck.See question
My employer sent out a text message saying that there will be a mandatory meeting in two or three days (Friday at 5pm or Saturday at 9am). The meeting is not scheduled otherwise.
Yes, they can absolutely schedule meetings through text message. An employer is not in any manner restricted regarding how they communicate with their employees. An employee does not somehow acquire the ability to disregard their employer's instructions and be free of consequences simply because the employer chose the wrong method of communicating.See question

Infections can happen even when a wound is properly dressed. Your challenge will be in showing that the infection would not have happened but for substandard medical care. Consult with some local employment attorneys to determine your options, but know up front that medical malpractice claims are extremely difficult to win and extremely expensive to try.
Best wishes to you.See question
Attorneys cannot respond to solicitations for work through this forum. You will need to reach out to attorneys on your own to discuss the possibility of representation. As the other responder noted, intentional infliction of emotional distress claims are extremely difficult to win, so it may be difficult if not impossible for you to find an attorney willing to represent you on a contingency fee basis. Of course, it depends on the specific facts, which you should share in a confidential setting. Best of luck to you.See question
I went to a new nail salon in pinole and had my nails done and my face waxes and they burned my skin off of my face and all they try to do was give me a free design or two
Depending on how severely you were burned you may have a case worth pursuing. Contact local counsel to discuss. Good luck to you.See question
No employees came to my aid. Another customer and my daughter had help me up. And later I was able to alert a staff to report the incident
You should definitely contact some local personal injury attorneys. However, be forewarned that you will need evidence of a specific "unreasonably dangerous condition" that caused you to fall. If you simply tripped or fell due to circumstances outside of Costco's control, they would not typically be liable. The other thing to consider is that if your only injury is a sprained ankle then the amount you would stand to recover is probably not that much. So, it may be difficult to attract legal counsel willing to assist you on a contingency fee basis. Best of luck to you and a speedy recovery.See question
The Insurance company lawyer sent a Special Interrogatory form and now is complaining that we didn't respond in a legal way. Is there a special form that I need to use to send a response? (let's skip the "you should contact a lawyer" response)
As the other responders have noted, the issue is likely that you did not sign the responses under penalty of perjury. Have you considered asking the other side in what way your responses were legally deficient? Also, I know you don't want to be told to retain an attorney, the fact is you are vastly outmatched without one, much more so than you likely even realize at this point. Personal injury lawyers handle cases on a contingency fee basis, so cost should not be an obstacle to quality legal representation. Good luck.See question
