First of all, the contents of your post do not raise any defective products issues. Secondly, the statute of limitations, on any potential personal injury claim you may have had against this individual has likely already passed, since it's been more than two (2) years.
Ms. Berjis is licensed to practice law in the State of California. The laws of your jurisdiction may differ and thus this answer is for informational and educational purposes only and is not to be considered as legal advice. Since all facts are not addressed in the question, this answer could change depending on other significant and important facts. This answer in no way constitutes an attorney-client relationship.
I don't think so.
Joseph L. Ciaccio is a New York attorney with the Law Offices of Joseph M. Lichtenstein, P.C. (medicalattorneyny.com). The answers posted herein are not legal advice and do not create an attorney-client relationship.
Too much time has passed for any legal action. Set aside these painful memories and move forward.
No legal advice here. READ THIS BEFORE you contact me! My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as if they were legal advice. I give legal advice ONLY in the course of a formal attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by joint execution of a written agreement for legal services. My law firm does not provide free consultations. Please do not call or write to me with a “few questions” that require me to analyze the specific facts of your history and your license application and prescribe for you how to get a State license. Send me an email to schedule a paid Consultation for that kind of information, direction, and assistance. My law firm presently accepts cases involving State and federal licenses and permits; discipline against State and federal licenses; and disciplinary and academic challenges to universities, colleges, boarding schools, and private schools. We take cases of wrongful termination or employment discrimination only if the claims involve peace officers, universities or colleges.
Trying to make a connection between someone "coughing" and Spitting" and this causing in 2009 something that you did not identify would be virtually impossible. In addition showing that a person who coughed was doing so carelessly and/or intentionally is impossible. Not sure what the cause of action would even be? You then seem to talk about something that happened last winter: that "someone"--same person as in 2009? spit in the dog's water bowl and everyone got sick including the dog. Who says it's from the "mucus"? You also say you didn't report these people at the time?? I'm curious as to what you mean and to whom you would be making a "report?"
Though I have no idea what cause of action you would be bringing in 2009, the statute of limitation--the time by which a lawsuit must be filed or all rights to make a claim are lost,, is probably past. With regard to the latest "incident" I do not see a cause of action or causation between wast you describe happened and what resulted after.
If you really feel strongly about this make an appointment with a lawyer and sit down and discuss this in detail.
If you feel this is the "best" answer or is "helpful," please indicate. Since I am limited to the information you provide, I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the answer. You should seek the advise of an attorney who can explore all aspects of your question. This communication does not form an attorney client relationship.
