i live in New York. I lived in an apartment for one year and was exposed to very high levels of asbestos while the landlord renovated an apartment below me. I had an environmental engineer conduct a test, and have certified lab results stating the alarming levels of asbestos, lead, gypsum, silica dust and lung irritants that were present in my apartment.
Can I sue my landlord now.......the effects of asbestos exposure don't usually show up until years later.........but I am scared. I am going for a chest xray tomorrow, as I had at least 3 lung infections while living in the apartment, and have always been completely healthy.
I moved out of the apartment because of the landlord and his rude and careless behavior.
Second opinion] My grandson was injured at his school
Second opinion] My grandson was injured at his school yesterday and I would like know what if any actions should I take. I will explain what happened. He was in the playground play and went to open one of the gates and the gate bounced back and hit him in the left eyebrow and cut his eyebrow in which he was treated with 5 stitches. My concern is why is the gate not on a hinge to keep it from dangerous impact or has any padding protection. I believe the school should be responsible the medical cost and I want to make sure that the gates get addressed and corrected to provide and safer environment.

Second Opinion ]I was involved in an accident on 1/4/2017. A Richmond city employee hit the back of my car while I was stopped at a red light. The officer gave me an exchange of crash information form which indicated that I was to appear in court on the 23rd of January at 11:00. I don't feel that my insurance company (Amica) is aggressive enough for me to get appropriate damages. What is your advice?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: Richmond, VAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes, I filed a claim with my insurance company.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I can't think of any thing, that's why I wanted to speak to an attorney.

Hi I fell in a hole that a utility truck collapsed and hurt my shoulder. They asked for all authorizations under the sun from 10 years prior which I signed because I have nothing to hide. I get it this is their job but I too have a job and my time is valuable. They have sent a new request for my dental records because it shows from an authorization I got & signed for them my prescription records. Yes I got a prescription from an oral surgeon years ago. Do I just sign it as I still have nothing to hide or how should I handle their time consuming request?
I know my boyfriend last year was filming me in the bathroom
I know my boyfriend last year was filming me in the bathroom without my permission. The sheriff won't do anything because I do not have proof. I hired a PI who just took my money and did not really investigate. I asked another PI and she said she did not think she could get anyone to give her or show anyone a copy of the pictures or videos and does not want to take my case.Since I can't get any help, I want to publish a website accusing him of this crime and send it to him, his friends I believe are involved, their wives and all of their families and the press if they will listen.What is my liability?Example of site: Jamiegoochweb.wordpress.comOr can I sue him in civil court pro se and does he even have to show up if I do?
I am a small business owner in NYC and am currently facing a
Hello,I am a small business owner in NYC and am currently facing a situation.My business receives dry food containers (20 feet) and we received one last week at our warehouse over the weekend. We are closed on the weekends and our modus operandi is that the container is left over night and we work on it the next business day being Monday. The container was dropped off at its usual location on the road right across our driveway. We had another container to be picked up this Monday from the port while we currently unload the merchandise in the afternoon. The transporter's driver came by my warehouse around 630am on Monday instead of heading to the port for picking up the other container (this mistake on the driver's part was confirmed later by his employer). While attaching the container he slipped and fell on the public pavement (located right across our drive way) due to the ice and snow present from over the weekend. The last snow fall reported was on Saturday. We are closed on Saturdays and Sundays. Monday's temperatures were a low of 14 and high of 23. An ambulance was called and he apparently fractured his foot.He is now pursuing coming after me. He is an independent contractor according to his employer and is issued a 1099 by the transportation company. He does not have any health insurance of his own.I am looking to see if my insurance company will be covering this however I realized that we never received any renewal documents to sign off on. The expiration was October 2016. The reason we never received any mail was because they had the wrong mailing address. They did send us a contract back dating it from then however also made us sign a document stating that from the expiration date onwards till today we are not aware of any accidents or claims against us.My question is:- Will I I have any issues from my insurance company after reporting this incident since I signed that waiver claiming of not knowing of any accidents?- How significantly important is a video of the incident to support the driver's claim or not? The only person who was there to help him out when he fell was the next door neighbor. He did reach out to them a few days later asking if he would cooperate as a witness but he declined to.- Till what extent am I responsible for the driver's accident considering:- He was not supposed to be there that Monday morning (he was there 6:30am) at all and was only there due to his misunderstanding. His employer can confirm this.- Considering the snow fell over the weekend and we technically don't open until 9am. My employee was there that morning but again only to get into the office for admin work but the gates and doors were still shut.- If my insurance company declines to cover this incident, how much is the company (incorporated) personally liable to pay? All I know is that he is out of work for a week, had an ambulance transport him to the hospital and was treated at the hospital. Not sure how it affects him performing his job moving forward.Any input and advice is greatly appreciated. I am afraid and as a small business owner this is the last thing i need to face for the start of this year.

I live in California.When I send the opposing counsel a discovery request, do I somehow "register it" at the Courthouse? If it is optional, does "registering" the discovery request mean I am more likely to be able to enforce a timely response?

One of the co-owners of an inherited house is currently living there legally. However, if that co-owner were to take up temporary residence and work in another city, without moving their belongings, would the house no longer be their residence legally?

Hi. I was involved in a fender bender about 5 months ago and was not at fault. I went to the hospital to be checked out and began the claims process. The medical adjustor for my auto insurance indicated that I would be responsible for a portion of the medical bills. I subsequently received the bill but for 100% of the expenses. The insurance company sent me an explanation of review document stating that I am only responsible for a portion. However, when I contacted the hospital I was advised that the bills is in collectionsJA: In what state did the injury take place? And do you have medical records or other documentation?Customer: FloridaJA: Has anything been filed? If so, what?Customer: Supposedly because the bill wasn't paid the hospital has requested to have a "lien" on my license I don't know what that meansJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No. Do you guys charge for this inquiry?
