In most situations, one may argue that screaming at and pushing elderly people in an elevator maybe reckless endangerment.

Recent Reckless Endangerment Questions

  • Statute of Limitations question about medical malpractice.

    Statute of Limitations question about medical malpractice. There was no written informed consent for any of the surgeries to my husband's prostate. He would not have gone through with the (TURP) if he had known of the inevitable removal of the "eye" of the urethra where the semen comes out. Doctors still tell patients that there will be no decrease in climax after a TURP, which is not true in most cases. Shortly after the operation, he was rudely awakened to this reality and the subsequent 2 TURPs made sex painful instead of pleasurable. In march of 2012, he went for his 4th TURP where I suspect the doctor made an unintentional 1/4" gash to the opening to his prostate and he was in the hospital for 4 days. We did not discover this until September of 2014 when new doctor showed us with a sophisticated camera or cystoscope. He kept seeing the first doctor until 2013 when they did incisions to his bladder canal and caused damage to his sphincter muscle. So now he is incontinent. Did the statute of limitations run out so that he can not recover on the no climax and painful part of his injury on account of the discovery of the problem early on in 2008? Since I don't know when the 1/4" gash was made, can I sue for this injury which caused my husband to have to self catheterize 2 or three times a day? Since there was no informed consent for the work on his bladder canal and the damage to the sphincter muscle (which was also documented by camera by second doctor). is the incontinence (caused by the gash) and the self-catheterizing (caused by the collateral damage to the sphincter muscle) the only thing I can sue for? Or does the lack of informed consent and battery reach back years and years because doctor continued to treat? I guess what I am asking is: Does the court break up the injuries into “counts” so that you win some and lose some based on the statute of limitations and reasonable discovery of injury?
  • I have asked a few questions on this site recently about

    I have asked a few questions on this site recently about toxic mold found in our office building. Now the situation has become more serious. We just received the lab results and two contract employees show the mold in their system at dangerous levels.
    We need to get them treated right away. Our insurance company says it is a workers comp matter but these are contract employees and do not have workers comp insurance. Our insurance company says we should make the claim with the landlords insurance but the
    landlord is not taking responsibility for anything and refuses to give us the mane of his insurance policy. Is he allowed to refuse to give us the contact info for his insurance? Do we have to file a lawsuit just to file a claim with his insurance? Do we compel
    him in Court, injunction, etc? What should we do?
  • Hello. I used to work as a care provider at the Child Day

    Hello.
    I used to work as a care provider at the Child Day Care and observed a child abuse at this place. I called 911 and reported about it. After that the owner (63 years old woman) got mad and pushed me into the chest... I have a pacemaker and since she was not gonna stop and tried to push me again, I hit the square plate she was holding in her left hand in order to throw the chopped apples in her face to make her stop. The angle of the plate hit her forehead and cut its skin (just a little bit) and it started bleeding.
    When police came (I called it before), this woman (the owner) and her daughter slandered me by saying I was told I am fired and that's why I got mad, grabbed the plate and assaulted the owner! Sure I was arrested, booked in jail and spent 5 days(!) in there. I had 8 court trials. And finally there was the last one and all the juries, unanimously held "not guilty". So now I'm acquitted and wondering is there any possibility to sue those people for slander? If so, what should I start with?
    Again, I have a congenital heart disease. I'm 29 and my first pacemaker was implanted when I was 7 years old.
    Thank you in advance.
    Hanna.
