i live in New York. I lived in an apartment for one year and

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.

I have a personal injury case going on since 2010 and trial

I have a personal injury case going on since 2010 and trial starts next month. I got rear ended and obtained herniations in my neck and lower back. I have gotten multiple steroid injections up to this point with little relief. Also tried PT, Chiroparactic car with no help. The defendant had a 100k policy with geico, but geico is only offering 10k to settle. I'm a candidate for lumbar and cervical surgery and my Lawyer told me he can "guarantee" he can get me the full 100k Settlement if I get the surgery. Does this make sense? If my MRIs show the herniations damage, why will surgery settle my case? Not sure he's being fully honest or just wants a better case to go to trial. He told me straight out that he don't want to go to trial for wok and doesn't think I will do much better without surgery.

This query is for CalAttorney2 ONLY: Mr.. I'm still working

This query is for CalAttorney2 ONLY: Mr. B. I'm still working on my memorandum in opposition to defendants' motions for summary judgment. I want to include among my exhibits perhaps a half-dozen treatments of the steroid-adrenal crisis nexus, but the most authoritative books I have are huge, too fat to get a clear copy on the copiers available to me. The controlling pretrial order says “copies of exhibits, including x-rays and medical articles may be used instead of the original, provided they are clearly legible, are not marked or highlighted, and are complete.”If I could afford to buy these books, I could just remove the relevant pages and copy them, but I cannot afford to buy them (and besides, my long-dead mother would rise from her grave and berate me severely). I'm wondering if I can photograph the pages or if I can type out the relevant text on my computer and attach a photograph of the books and the pages, showing enough detail to validate the typed work is an accurate representation. Any ideas?

A personal injury firm has sent me a retainer

A personal injury firm has sent me a retainer agreement/contract that would provide them with 40% of any settlement/award, regardless of the circumstances (even if the case settled without litigating). I know attorneys determine their own terms (within certain guidelines), but this seems particularly excessive to me. Is it worth 'bartering' the terms, or is it best to just move on? I realize if I don't ask, I won't know - but I find this really off-putting. They're located in another state. Is that typically a factor in expecting a higher percentage? I don't anticipate that the case will involve much travel for my case specifically. They're not the only firm interested, but it would be unfortunate for financial terms between client/attorney to be the deciding factor.

During the weekend my girlfriend slipped and fell in the

During the weekend my girlfriend slipped and fell in the restaurant and did not know that the floor was very wet. She was in great pain. One of the employee who happen to be mopping the floor did not post any yellow sign or any warning sign of the floors being wet. The manager who happen to be there asked my girlfriend if she needed to go to a hospital and said that his restaurant has insurance.We weren't sure what to do? A few day later I drove my girlfriend who was experiencing pain on the leg, back and neck to a hospital to take x ray to make sure that nothing was fracture.In this case, we didn't know what to do?

I asked the question earlier about pain and suffering but

I asked the question earlier about pain and suffering but after reading through your quick questions below I understand it better my question should've been as follows. I suffered a broken toe and seven stitches, I happen to be a quadriplegic with sensation everywhere. When the paramedics from the ambulance company rammed my foot into the door frame it was a very severe and painful injury. I was just arriving at my urologist office for a suprapubic catheter change, the nurses there did what they could to clean up the injury and wrapped my toe and foot in gauze to stop the bleeding. They completed the catheter change and the paramedics took me from there to the hospital emergency room for x-rays and were my foot was stitched. I was in severe pain for several days after the accident and then in discomfort for at least 14 total days. The important point in this pain episode is that since I am a quadriplegic I normally deal with considerable daily pain. For my daily pain I have always taken norcos as a pain reliever, but because of this toe injury I had to increase my pain medication which meant I had to take oxycodone. Now oxycodone is far more addictive than norcos by far so and I remain on them to this day, which is about 30 days since the accident. My doctor will start getting me off the oxycodone little by little next week, so the important part of my question is? Isn't this withdraw problem part of my pain-and-suffering? If this withdraw problem is part of my pain-and-suffering after everything you've read what is your best guess? Just take a shot in the dark at what you would think the pain-and-suffering multiplier would be, that is it's being between 1.5 and 5?
