Since my neighbors moved in, we've constantly had issues

Since my neighbors moved in, we've constantly had issues over the common driveway between our properties. They liked to park in the middle of the driveway blocking my access in or making it difficult to manuever in behind my house.I have an easement on my deed to the right of ingress and egress on the common driveway to access a garage and a parking spot behind my home.Their house burned down last year and since they've started construction, the inconsideration and lack of respect has reached a level that I can no longer tolerate.It first started out with the demolition of the old house without notice. Mind you, the distance from my house and theirs is a little more than the width of car. No introduction from the contractors, notice of when they'd begin, how long they'd take or what to expect. We decided to have patience and allow them to work on their home.Then, as the carpenters worked, we found nails strewn all over the driveway. Because my sister was so tired after a 12 hour shift at the hospital, she just swept the majority of it up and parked her car back there without thinking to take a photograph. Afterwards, she'd tell me that she'd removed a cinder block for a second time from the middle of the driveway, where I texted the contractor to ask his team to clean up after themselves.Telling her we have to begin documenting, she informed me one day of discs and shells of wood in the driveway. I took photos and left the mess, the next day, I asked one of the workers to sweep it up and make sure that they clean up after themselves. He smirked at me and I felt mocked, however he did clean up so I left it at that.On the 15th, I woke up to the common driveway being broken down in half, their half being demolished so they could repave. Understandable. But again WITHOUT NOTICE. This time, I am heavily affected because they had no idea that I had my minivan parked in the garage overnight and I can't drive it down the driveway and out without likely sustaining damages to the wheels and underside of vehicle. I am now unable to use that car until they're finished. I also have lost the ability to park my cars in the available parking space back there and have to look for parking when I get home from work for over an hour sometimes.The owner of the construction company was not present to speak with but his workers quickly asked us to call him. He apologized for not letting us know and said that they should be done repaving by Tuesday the 21st. Advised by lawyers to call the police, we did but they couldn't do anything since technically, it wasn't a crime. I also called City Hall and filed a complaint but they called back and said they have a right to the driveway as well, that it just "sucks that my neighbors don't care to give me the courtesy "of communication.I don't appreciate that I never receive notice or communication of actions that may or may not directly affect me and would like notice from here on out as well as get writing of promises (such as should be finished repaving driveway by the 21st) in the event that they do not keep their word and I'm further inconvenienced. I'm tired of the garbage left behind too!Is it possible to sue the contractor and owners in small claims court for a private nuisance? In regards ***** ***** being able to remove my minivan from my garage and losing access to my parking spaces back there? Or what angle can I go after them with?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New JerseyJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Called the cops once, tried to file a complaint with City HallJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I am a registered nurse in Texas and am currently employed

I am a registered nurse in Texas and am currently employed as a director of nursing in a skilled nursing and rehab center. I am new and am implementing changes which people do not like (being held accountable for their work/disciplinary action etc). this weekend I arrived to work to find an adult sex toy which looks like a vagina on my desk with scissors from my desk stabbed into the opening and they positioned other items from my office around it. I have also received information about a male employee who is my assistant talking negatively about me and multiple other issues with him which just came to my attention that day. I recently counseled several of his (my assistants) friends, nurses and aides who I have heard have boyfriends/husbands with prison and gang affiliations. These people I am finding are all friends and have what would be considered inappropriate manager/employee relationships. I reported it to my administrator, they called the local police who have refused to investigate because I have not yet been physically harmed. There are no cameras in the facility and there is no security. I have let them know I fear for my safety because of the employees and their connections and the "message" left on my desk. I have previously been physically attacked (at another job with this same issue) and had my car vandalized several times. I let my employer know about these issues, I am having severe anxiety/panic attacks about going back to this environment. What is my recourse if they are unable to create a safe environment?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: A report was made with the San Antonio police department and I reported to my administrator and the corporate human resources department.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I am hoping they are able to resolve this situation, but if they are not I want to know what my options are. Does this fall under workers compensation or are they required to find me alternate placement? Thank you
