I rented a home,with my 2 sisters and our invalid mother.at
I rented a home,with my 2 sisters and our invalid mother.at the end of April we started hearing scratching and loud thumps in the ceiling over our bay window in the living room,we thought we had squirrels witch I found were harmless and posed no threat to humans.then we realized it was racoon's nesting there.urine and feces started to soak through the ceiling, they had ripped out the insulation and there were literally pounds if feces on the window and ground and railing.my mother's room was feet away from this mess.our landlord claimed she was not responsible, no pest control company would help us because we didn't own the home and the landlord refused to give consent even though we offered to pay for it.this went on through June,my mother got I'll twice during this time with breathing problems and and lung issues. Finally I called the department of pubic works and the neiborhood authority.they came out and did an inspection, and the landlord was forced to repair it.I want to sue her for reckless endangerment. Do I have a case? Thank you.

I recently rented a car from a national company and while I was driving the car on the freeway the front driver side tire came off the vehicle. I was with great effort and peril able to get the car to the shoulder. There were no physical injuries although I'm still mentally shaken over the near death incident. Do I have any legal recourse against the rental car company? Do I have a case for reckless endangerment, negligence or anything else?

"socrateaser" If someone is speeding lets say 35-40 in a 25 mph zone and you cause an accident and someone dies what are you on the hook for? What happens if you cut someone off while speeding which some how altered the mental state of the victim and the victim later gets in a serious accident does the one that cut the drier off bear any responsibility?

Hi I was stupid enough to get on a ski boat with an idiot I
Hi I was stupid enough to get on a ski boat with an idiot I barely knew. It was after dark (830 pm) approx 2 weeks ago. For whatever reason he was going full throttle approx 50 mph up the Sacramento river without any lights on his boat. By the time we crashed I was already in the duck and cover position holding a small dog praying for my life. When the river bent to the left for some unknown reason the guy made a hard right turn and needless to say we were airborne landing out of water halfway up the bank wedged in big rocks sideways. (I had to climb up the side of the boat to land in the blackberry bushes.) I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX was knocked out for at least a few minutes. We were stuck for 2 hrs waiting for help. Right after I said (holding my head) owe that really hurt. I noticed the smuck had put a lifejacket on himself, ordered me to give him a push up and proceeded to leave me (and his dog) in the boat which I wasn't sure if it was going to flip or tip over back into the river. Next the boat started smoking pretty bad. So I climbed out up the side to find myself in thick blackberry bushes. Long story short my coworkers and friends think I had a concussion, I had bruises on my butt, elbow, legs and a lump on the back of my head and the top of my head is very tender where it hurts just to touch it. Can I hold him liable for reckless endangerment of life or limb?
Is Reckless Endangerment perpetrated When an individual in
Is Reckless Endangerment perpetrated When an individual in a crowded elevator containing some confused elderly individuals, shouts out '"we're going up" when it reaches the top floor of the building and one or more of the confused ones bumps into others as he stops and turns to come back into the elevator.? The confused and very infirm one he bumped into was his wife, who did not fall because she was surrounded closely by other people.
My van was totaled by a driver who I had never seen beforeView more personal injury law questions
My van was totaled by a driver who I had never seen before in my life. The driver in the other car tried to get me to pull over when I refused he chased me and rear ended my car for blocks. He continued to ram my car until I lost control. This driver left the scene. This was an intential wrongdoing. There was property damage and I have medical bill that are adding up. My insurance paid off my car note. I purchased another car. They have paid for what ever they are responsible for . I have told the police that I want to pursue this case. I can identify the driver in a line up. The police found the car that night. It has been towed away. The person registared to the car told the police that they had sold it that day? That they did not have a bill of sale, they did not know the person or even the name of the person they sold it to? I want to know if I can go after these people .Maybe their car insurance or home owners insurance. I really feel that they know who this person is.
