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?

Oh, I was just looking around the net to see if I could find

Oh, hello! I was just looking around the net to see if I could find anything regarding a problem I had with CVS Pharmacy. I was given an RX for Vitamin D and when I called for a refill the girl laughed and said "Oh, you can just come in and get it but I will get some and give you a refill." When I got the first one the "pill" looked funny but I'd never had to take this before so I just figured thats what they looked like. I took them and when I had to go back and get tested to see how they were working my numbers tanked and then I find out she was getting the vitamins from OTC and putting them in a bottle and calling it an RX, and charging it as an actual doctor's RX. I am thinking this could fall under insurance fraud? She laughed and thought it was funny but I wasn't amused. I have Autoimmuine Disease and now have cirrhosis of the liver because of it, and her giving me over the counter garbage and billing the insurance company is what I would consider fraud so I was just looking around to see if there is some place I could get some answers. ...Christina

In 2006 my husband and I started a business that has grown

In 2006 my husband and I started a business that has grown into 3 businesses that now gross over 20 million/yr. My husband is controlling and self centered. I actually would classify him as abusive, but although there are plenty of witnesses, no one would admit that in public. I have always run the back end, he has always been the driving force. Actually jumping to the end, as all the details would become a long essay, while we were supposed to be celebrating our 20th anniversary (although we were separated) , he sent an email to our sales force that by the AM there would be answers for the terrible job the back end was doing (1 week into a completely green staff). I drove him back to our house when I found out and the next day he and a consultant we brought on full time decided to send a letter to all of our company and customers stating that I had resigned. Which I didn't.Honestly my life has been a living hell since 2012 when my husband decided to buy a 5 million dollar commercial property against my will. With me back end, that makes me a slave to the bank, reports etc., non stop. He wouldn't let me hire my own team and my asst. ended up being an attorney (2nd wife of attorney friend 20+ yrs younger that gave out raises and then tried to mess with the books to hide it. She was fired the people on his team that receivd the $ were "talked to". That story is the least likely that I have to make your skin crawl. I developed severe carpal tunnel in both hoth hands. My youngest son became a drug addict, the list goes on and on. All of which was my problem. Anyhow, after he sent the email, and I drove him home. I drank a CASE of beer, probably had some sleeping pills in there and slit my wrists. 20+ minutes after he received pictures of blood everywhere , he and an employee have an IM about 'I hope she doesn't really hurt herself". I have in writing that he showed the employee the pictures. They left me for dead and then told the company I resigned. When I got out of the hospital, I was locked out of everything. It took me weeks just to get my emails back and they had diverted a lot of them. All I get is junk now. They are using accounts (credit card etc., in my name, banking in my name using my passwords, not sharing any information such as password *****). I don't have keys for any of our buildings and if I show up at the office, everyone diverts their eyes.Is this fraud? Is it something else? I know they are destroying what I have built. My 2 oldest children work during breaks and are not happy with the direction of our "family" business.Suggestions?
