I have a deathly peanut allergy. My husband and I went to a

I have a deathly peanut allergy. My husband and I went to a restaurant last night in Midtown Miami and our server (Doug) was repeatedly told by myself and my husband to double check with the chef to see if there are any peanuts used in their dishes, any peanut oil used to fry things, any peanut garnishes.... etc with every single plate he brought out. There were only 2 tables occupied and the restaurant is very small, we could clearly see the server going and asking the chef (Joseph) and chefs assistant (Wilson) if there are peanuts and with every dish Joseph and Wilson shook their heads (its an open kitchen and they were 10- 20 feet or so away from us. I kept asking the server to bring me something very very spicy (not tobasco, not sriracha sauce) anything that would make the average person can not handle. He came back and brought me a very mild sauce, I asked again, he said we dont have anything spicy, I said fine but dont you used jalapeno peppers in your dishes, his response "oh ya), I said they are not very spicy for me but its fine, to bring them chopped. You could see the chef getting annoyed and my husband said... leave it alone, they are being unaccommodating. Anyhow, we got a bunch of plates, the last plate we got, underneath the stew there was a full handful of peanuts, I had a taste of the top but my husband took a big spoon and as soon as he bit into it, he said "GET YOUR PURSE", he spit out the peanut to make sure thats what it was, and yes it was. I started to have a reaction a few minutes later in the lyft car that we jumped into to go to the closest emergency room. The Chef and chef assistant were standing back leaning on the back counter watching us and laughing hysterically. The waiter made us pay for the bill and could not care less, could not offer an explanation, just did not have any sense of urgency or any reaction at all.I want the cameras of the restaurant to see exactly what happened. I am going to go to a police station to charge the restaurant criminally for attempted murder. The only thing that saved me was my husband since he is a doctor. Emergency was too far away so we went to the closest urgent drug store to get the emergency medicine to stop the reaction. He dragged me into the drug store, I could not breath, could not walk, my tongue was swelling, everyone was staring at me like I was a crack head overdosing. The pharmacist rushed the medicine and the reaction started to calm down, my tongue stopped swelling, and I was able to breathe again. I would also like to get the testimony of the Lyft driver to witnessed me almost dying and the video tape of the pharmacy showing what state I was in, and how I came back to life.What are my rights?

I was pepper sprayed at a night club by the staff. It caused me to slam the ground and hit my head so hard it knocked me out and sent me into a sesier. The staff of the night club instructed the friend that had came to help me not to call police or an ambulance. Also instructed them to get me out of their now...meanwhile I'm still having a seiser. I had never had a sesier before this incident. Police and ambulance were called any way thank God and I was rushed to the hospital.After some tests,ct scan and x rays I was released and told I had concussions like symptoms . I feel the blow to my head has affected my memory and I just don't feel normal. The doctor says this should go away in a few days. My question is... is there some kind of legal action I can take? Sue the night club? Press charges on the individuals who done me this way? Sue them individually? Press charges on the night club? All of the above? I feel something should be done. It can b legal for them to just do people that way

I live in Massachusetts and was a victim of a violent crime.

I live in Massachusetts and was a victim of a violent crime. The defendant spent 5 years in the House of Correction for attempted murder. Restitution was ordered by the judge of $273,000.00 for lost wages. He has been out of jail for 6 years and has been paying very small monthly payments under the supervision of the Probation Department. The Probation Department's supervision is due to end within two years and i would like to ensure that payments are made after his probation ends. The defendant just bought a house that has a small amount equity in it. Can I convert the judgement into a Civil judgement? Can I use the judgement order to put a lien on his house? If so, which would be most successful in ensuring that I get the money that is owed me?

A fellow employee tainted my cigarettes with fluorescent penetrant

A fellow employee tainted my cigarettes with fluorescent penetrant at work. When I left work I took a cigarette out of the pack but noticed that there was penetrant on the filter of the cigarette before I put in my mouth. Normally you cannot easily see the penetrant unless it was held under a black light, but because it was saturated along with a number of other cigarettes in the pack. The president/owner was not at work at the time so I notified him the next day. He never questioned anyone but drafted a letter a gave one to each employee. No action was taken to identify who was the culprit. What action can I take?
