It's beyond difficult to even type this. I had a premature

hi there,It's beyond difficult to even type this. I had a premature baby born 3 months early on June 3rd. His name is***** McGill. He was in the NICU at Good Samaritan Hospital of Los Gatos. He was diagnosed with a rare heart condition called bi-ventricular hypertrophy. He was doing well for a couple of weeks and the staff gave us hope that his lungs were just premature so he just needed to get stronger. Then over 2 weeks before he passed they called us in the middle of the night saying they poked a hole in his esophagus by mistake causing his lung to collapse and as a result they could no longer give him my breast milk. They said It's not "normal" for a hole to be poked in the esophagus there but it happened. Ever since then he clearly went down hill and they admitted his lungs were getting damaged from the oxygen machines. As a result, we have had nightmares and panic attacks requiring ativan. They did not do an echocardiogram for quite a while since his birth to discover a heart problem. He could have received treatment much sooner for that and even if he would not have survived anyway, his life could have been prolonged and more comfortably. A day before he passed they determined he needed to be transferred to Stanford. They convinced us that Stanford knew all about this rare heart condition and that they could "fix" him. Then we find out the Stanford doctors knew nothing about his condition and they sadly convinced us to take him off life support. Based on the true facts I've provided, do you think there is ANY chance of a negligence case against Good Samaritan hospital such as negligent infliction of emotional distress or medical malpractice of any kind? Thank you for your time. We can barely think or function.

Portland Oregon. My son and I have been in an accident. Due

Portland Oregon.My son and I have been in an accident. Due to the accident I got back pain and I didn't go to my classes for almost couple weeks which made me miss a lot of lectures and exams/quizzes/HW. Also my son has been having fear from the car, he's always worried and not normal when we're in the car. They offered $1500 for me and a $500 for my son. I don't feel that this reflects the consequences of the accident and how it affected me, my son and my family overall. but what do you guys think. Is what the insurance is paying me considers reasonable in this case or are they trying to be an "insurance company" and try hard not to pay what we deserve.

My fiance' goes to a beauty salon school called PJ's School

My fiance' goes to a beauty salon school called PJ's School of Cosmetology. This school is located in Jeffersonville, Indiana. At the school, there are several student hair dressers, my fiance' included. For educational purposes, the school allows customers off of the street to come in and obtain a haircut for $5, understanding that the haircut will be performed by a student who is learning.Yesterday, Tuesday, April 25th, 2017, a man, whose name is ***** ***** this time, groped my fiances vagina while she was cutting his hair. My fiance' smacked his hand and the instructor came over to see what had happened. The man was told to leave.Here is the issue. The man had previously been caught masturbating underneath the barber cape approximately 2 months prior. Another female hairdresser alerted the exact same instructor, and during that incident, the man was told to leave and not to come back.My fiance was aware of the previous incident, as the information spread around the school; however, my fiance' had no idea as to what the man looked like, because she had not attended class on the day that the first incident occurred. As it turns out, when the man came in yesterday, the instructor, the exact same instructor who kicked the man out the first time when he was caught masturbating, recognized the individual and allowed him to enter the school and purposely (the instructor admitted this) placed the individual with my fiance'. My fiance', who had no idea as to who the man was, was wondering why the instructor and other students were watching her closely and staring. Shortly thereafter, the man reached out and groped my fiance's vagina (sexual battery).After the man had left, my fiance' was alerted to the fact that the man was the exact same man that was told to leave a few months prior for the masturbating incident. My fiance' was astonished that the instructor knew who the man was and allowed him to come into the school, even after knowing his history, and purposely placing him with her to cut his hair. My fiance' stated that the instructor said, "I placed him with you because I know that you know how to handle yourself". My fiance called me crying her eyes out, as she felt extremely violated.My question is this: Does my fiance' have any recourse in this situation?

I have received a Civil Action Complaint in the state of NC.

I have received a Civil Action Complaint in the state of NC. At this time, I just want to answer the Complaint paragraphs. I'm not sure how to end the response if I am not making a counterclaim or filing a motion for dismissal. I have been advised by a knowledgeable friend (not an attorney) that I don't want to give them too much information at this time, to wait for discovery. I do have two articles in the NC statutes that support an Affirmative Defense, but do I really want to do that at this time, either? That would be showing my hand before I know what they think they have. This is a suit they can't win, unless I mess it up somehow. I have plenty of proof that will ensure a win for me, If I just want to answer, how do I end the document?

Plaintiff filed a complaint against a security company, as

Plaintiff filed a complaint against a security company, as here pertinent, for False Arrest, Assault, Battery, and Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress.The incident happened on July 1, 2014. This Complaint was filed within the 1 year statue of limitations. The Complaint was Amended on May 13, 2016 to include the District of Columbia(police department) and included the same noted intentional torts. The Court stated that the above noted torts should be dismissed against the District of Columbia apparently because they were not filed within one year. Simply put is the Court correct? It is important that I receive an answer today or perhaps by phone. Thank you, ***** *****

Second Opnion Request from Consumer Protection Viewpoint

Second Opnion Request from Consumer Protection Viewpoint[Note: Good input from first responder to our query. Just wondering if there is any further views or things to consider from a specifically Personal Injury point of view before we decide our course of action?]I read a question online from 2010 where someone asked if you can sue based on bad customer service. It looks like not. And yet...I'd like to get an opinion on my particular situation. I've been a 20-year member of 24 Hour Fitness and have never had any issues until recently. My girlfriendand I moved to Long Beach and started taking a local BodyPump class at their Bellflower facility.My girlfriend has also been a 24 Hour Fitness member for 15 years and has been taking the BodyPump program that entire time...and she got me into it 3 years ago. We've moved around a lot over these years and have had probably 10 different instructors, and she's had even more than I have for her other 12 years of BodyPump before me. She has never once had any issue with any instructor, nor had we together had any issues prior to this club.An instructor at this club seemed to take an immediate dislike to my girlfriend when we began attending in February and was extremely judgmental of her workout on several exercises. In a class of 40-50 people, she would consistently make comments directed specifically to her and even come over and get in her face or in some other way give her personal instruction in a very singular and demeaning way. In the beginning, my mild-mannered girlfriend would just politely say "Thank you, ***** ***** need to do it the way I do"...because she actually felt that the way the instructor was encouraging would actually harm her.The instructor, however, never backed off in singling her out and coming over to offer unwanted and specifically not-requested input. We see our attendance at a group class as participation with a group, not a militaristic boot camp with personal demeaning and belittling "coaching" being offered without request. And we've specifically requested she NOT interact with us.9 months of emails to management at higher and higher levels have ensued with no responsiveness. We have even turned to using the term "bullying" because that is how it has become...and yet still no response. We actually resorted to recording the classes so as to have documentation of this harassment, and intimated to management in emails that we had "evidence". Still no responsiveness.As her boyfriend, recently when this instructor got in her face again, I said to her "Stay away from us", the same request and message that we've been conveying for 9 months. She abruptly stopped the class and sent in 3 junior managers who asked us to leave. We didn't leave based on what we believe to be our right as attendees of a class to be able to work out in peace. So the class did not continue.One might ask "Why keep going to that class??" The time works best for us, and we simply see no reason, as customers, to attend another less workable class because of bullying from an instructor: that shouldn't be happening!We recently recorded a conversation with a manager trainee who came into the class (at the request of the instructor, as nobody has ever addressed us or our emails about it) in which we explained our situation and again made the request that the instructor leave us alone and focus on the other 50 members of class. I asked the manager trainee, as I was recording, if it was alright to send this to other management and he said "Okay".I sent that recording yesterday to all levels of management (Club, Regional, Functional) and, again, we received no response. However upon entering the club this morning, I was told that they are revoking my 20yr membership "due to issues with this instructor" and for violating policy of recording.What if any recourse do we have? Though they have a policy of no video or audio recording and yet, with no responsiveness, we recorded the classes on our phone as a last resort. The only recording ever revealed to management thus far, however, has been the one where the manager trainee agreed to having sent to management.14 December 2016
