Mom is 101 years old. Went on vacation, stayed in a VRBO

Mom is 101 years old. Went on vacation, stayed in a VRBO rental, entry way had one step down to L/R, Mom took a mis-step and fell on the marble floor. Fractured pelvis and sacrum. Hospitalized for 8-days and in a life care rehab facility for 9 weeks. She lives with me (her daughter) and is back at home. Owner of the VRBO is an attorney. Mom has Medicare A and Federal Retirement Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Most bills have been paid. Her out of pocket co-pays are around $10,000. It is my understanding the property should be insured with a small amount of medical coverage if someone is hurt on the premises. First told, it was being turned into insurance company. Then given name of insurance company, who did not insure the property. Given another name of insurance company who indicated policy had been cancelled on 04-04-16 and the accident occurred on 04-29-16. Received text from VRBO owner there was no insurance and he is not required to have insurance. My belief is he uses the VRBO as his residence as well as a VRBO rental. Property is located in the Black Forest in Monument CO. Believe this is a possible case for small claims court? However, would feel more comfortable knowing how to proceed. Thank you.

I am stuck in the middle of a particularly bad company

I am stuck in the middle of a particularly bad company dissolution between two owners: a mother and daughter. The mother in particular has made doing my job almost impossible. She verbally attacks me, accuses me of lying via email, copying other people who should not be copied, about things I have proof I am not lying about just so she doesn't look bad to the clients. Professionally, I feel like she's ruining me. Personally, I barely sleep with worry that she's going to ruin my career or sue me just to try to pin blame on someone else (she's really unstable). Do I have a case on anything here? The HR company we use is basically in her pocket and absolutely no help to me.

We have a member of an HOA who wants to have a personal

We have a member of an HOA who wants to have a personal trainer in the gym. The BOT said no because in the past it has disrupted other users. Here is what she says "Could you please get clarification on how a personal trainer would "interfere with other residents' use of the equipment"? Just like in any gym, if someone is on one of the machines that you want to use, you move to another machine and come back to that one later. I would have to do that with or without a personal trainer." She is planning on hiring a lawyer to be able to do this. What can we say? Is the BOT wrong or does she have a case?

I was recently involved in a car accident because I was

Hi there. I was recently involved in a car accident because I was sleep driving. But the police has given me a text while driving record.... which is not true... I have the phone bill that clearly state that I wasn't using my phone for any matters, and I don't have a habit of using my phone during that time (way to work). So I was wondering how should I defend myself at court? If I said I was sleep driving, can they give me a new ticket for that? Thanks! I live in MASS btw.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MassachusettesJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: It's not a criminal ticket.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: How much do you charge for the lawyer??JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit.

I was in an accident last week, the other driver was given

I was in an accident last week, the other driver was given the citation for disobeying a traffic signal (running the red light, I have a witness on record). My car has spent 9 days at a tow place accruing at $50 a day. No agent or anyone has been out to assess the damages. And now my insurance is saying I should get the car out to mitigate my costs..Firstly I don't have $615 ($165 for the tow) secondly if the other driver is at fault, why would I be paying that rediculous amount? Am I wrong to assume her insurance would be covering that? She got the citation not me. And I have a Witness who has already cooperated with police.Thank for taking the time to helpJosh
