I need to know if I need to seek council. I was attacked by

Hi,I need to know if I need to seek council. I was attacked by 2 teenage boys last October at a haunted fort event at Wa. fort Casey park on Whidbey Island. The people who setup this event let the boys go instead of calling the police. The next day I heard that the boys were bragging about it on the parks dept, facebook page, by the time I got home the post was gone. I went to see my doctor and x-rays were done.At this point a L&I insurance claim was open. My doctor decided the best approach would be to send me to PT. I became really depressed that my back and neck was not getting any better. I went back to see my doctor twice regarding. In March I had blood work done and my doctor decided to lower my thyroid medicine without even comparing it to the previous blood work from my previous doctor from Nevada. I went back in to talk with my doctor and told her I was , tired, depressed, and that my thyroid t4 doesn't covert into t3. At this point she decided she needed to lower my does again. I requested seeing a spine specialist because nothing was getting done to help my back and neck. I saw a spinal specialist finally in May and he had a MRI done . The MRI showed that I have 2 bulging disk in my neck. In the mean time I decided to find a new doctor who was interested in my health issues. I asked my Doctor for a copy of my records. The doctors staff harassed me for 2 weeks to get them. When I was getting ready to go to my new doctors office I was going through my medications and realized that a medication Cetirizine which I had been on for years had been ordered by the doctor but never called it into my pharmacy for 11 months. I received a copy of all medications filled by my pharmaacy and that one was not listed. I'm at the point now where I don't know how to handle this. My Spine specialist is requesting epidural shots in my back as a first approach to relieve my pain. L&I are dragging there feet approving them and I'm sitting here going on 8 months without any relief. I have been let down by everyone involved in this accident and in my health care.

THIS QUESTION IS EDUCATOR ESQ. I AM pro se in a civil case

THIS QUESTION IS FOR LAW EDUCATOR ESQ.I AM pro se in a civil case in WPB Florida. I'm suing a company for slander/ defamation of character as they published an online publication defaming my name, career as a realtor because I was a witness in a case against them in small claims court. as such I served a verified complaint they received and the attorney for the defendants as filed a:"motion for additional time to answer complaint and to file a counter claim"I do not think they should be given additional time to answer the complaint and their allegation in this motion that I published a defamatory online publication on defendant is false and there is no merit in a counterclaim in which they state they want to file.How do I address this to the judge? Do I write a motion to deny defendant's request for additional time to answer complaint and file counter claim" and/or in addition do I request a UMC hearing on this matter with the judge chambers??Do you know the require timeframe that the defendants have to answer a complaint??

I have asked questions on the Landlord/tenant law in state

I have asked questions on the Landlord/tenant law in state of Florida. The questions were asked on 7-1-16 and7-2-16. I filed a 3 day notice on6/24/16. Then a complaint for eviction. The tenants filed for bankruptsy on 7-8-16. I am filing an affidavit to lift a stay to the judge. So that I can get writ of possession and moved their stuff out to the street.The huge question is, If I secretively have some one cut the electricity line to my rental, what are the legal & monetary consequences? I know they can sue me for 3 months rent. Tenants already owe me 3 months rent ..so that is a wash, right? What else can they do?I have to get them out so that I can find another tenant to pay me rent for August, Thx Fr

A business aquintance offered my husband a job with a very

A business aquintance offered my husband a job with a very nice salary plus bonuses when they finish projects. The man lives in Florida but we live on Ohio, so this was going to entail a move. The business aquintance flew my husband to Florida twice where they discussed terms and worked together on the business. My husband was paid a small amount by personal check with the promise that he would be put on pay roll. My husband has since been back in Ohio because their next big project is waiting on a state inspection. However, he has been doing stuff for the business from home. His new employer told him twice he was sending his paycheck but weeks later, still no check. Now he won't answer my husband's calls. My husband has an email stating that he was now an employee of the company and would be paid a salary every two weeks. There was no indication that he was fired just suddenly being ignored and not paid. My husband also quit his job to take this one so we are in dire financial condition now with no paycheck. By my calculation, he is owed more than $11,000 for the weeks he worked. Does it sound like we have a case? Would it be worth it? Would it be possible to get a lawyer to take it who would take pay as a percentage of any judgement we receive?

I mailed her the "bill of sale" so I could gain

Hi Richard! I mailed her the "bill of sale" so I could gain full ownership of the business though she played me, and while she still had access to things, she's blocked me out of my email account, I can't sign in to my business email. She has sold our company's catering truck (that had been put in her name, though a declared asset of the company and had the check written to someone else) she's now holding my company phone, paperwork and inventory hostage. Please help!
