This is a question regarding liability of injury on my

This is a question regarding liability of injury on my property. My adult daughter was visiting us and was bitten by a rattle snake as she walked out my front door. She was treated emergently with antivenin and released from the hospital. After six days she is not able to fully bear weight on that foot. She is a waitress and a Graduate student and living independently. The foot ankle and calf looks pretty good but also pretty bad. Like a crush injury, We are not sure when she can work again. We called our home insurance company and the claims adjuster said yes indeed she was a visitor and our 5000.00 medical coverage would be activated on her behalf. But then I started thinking of her inability to work, her rent. car payment., utilities and her tuition and I called the adjuster back and about asked about our 100,000.00 liability insurance. Would this kick in for loss wages. He said no because a snake bite is an unexpected act from nature and showed no negligence from the property owner. But I think I may have been negligent. I have scruffy thicket of Russian sage at my front door. I have been feeding the birds against my HOA request. we recently noticed mice in our yard and put out poison. Rodents attract snakes. Snakes can hide in a thicket. I live across the street from an area of open desert land. I have rocks holding down the rug on my threshold area. What advice would you give me. I think I have liability insurance to cover such thing ( my 24 yr daughter has health insurance through me) with a 1500.00 deductible. I think she should every penny of health insurance to get well. But if this were my UPS guy who had a family to feed from his wages I would still think the same. My liability insurance should kick in. How do you suggest we proceed.

I'm a disabled veteran with ptsd and I was attacked by an

I'm a disabled veteran with ptsd and I was attacked by an assistant manager at Hardees this past Saturday. I confronted her about a situation that happened the previous day with my 17 yr old who works there. My daughter is a rape survivor and guys at the drivethru were making sexual remarks to her. She asked the assistant manager if she would wait on them. The manager laughed at her and said "Well they probably only said that because you're f**king them". My daughter started having a panic attack and instead of the manager helping her she laughed and my daughter left work. The general manager witnessed the actions of the assistant and turned around and went to his office. On Saturday when I went in I asked the same assisatant manager if she thought it was funny when someone has a panic attack. I didn't even mention my daughters name and she responded "nobody was making fun of your daughter, it's not my fault she's a whore." I reacted out of pure shock and slapped her in the face. She came out from behind the counter and attacked me, punching me in the face and head. I defended my self until we were pulled apart. Corporate office keeps calling wanting statements from us and I don't know what to do. Do I have a case? Does my daughter have a case? I have several bruises and my TMJ is really flaring up. Should I file assault charges? I really hope you can help.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: KentuckyJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: My daughter was diagnosed with ptsd 2 years ago due to the rape and it's been hard enough for her to work in the same town as the rapists. Now she doesn't feel safe anywhere.

My son received a notification from his credit union that he was being investigated for fraud. He had given someone his ATM card to make a deposit into his account. That person in turn gave it to someone else who is unknown to my son. That person deposited a bogus check for $4000 into my son's account and then when on a shopping spree, spending $4000. He was notified by the the credit unions fraud department, went down to the next day to fill out fraud papers and filed a police report. Today he received a certified letter from the credit union saying that he is liable for all that money. Aren't there laws to protect him against the fraudulent charges?
