My out of pocket cost >$800 for replacement of both rear

My out of pocket cost >$800 for replacement of both rear tires (balance and aligned) for two nails in right rear tire. Road construction co will not reimburse me. I did not see the nails as the tire was replaced before i knew of the possible reimbursement. Although I did collect 337 duplex nails over 6 week period (used on cement forms) during sidewalk cement construction. Do i have a chance in small claims court?

A couple of weeks ago on my college campus in New Jersey I

Hello, a couple of weeks ago on my college campus in New Jersey I received a parking ticket from the municipal court for "Blocked Handicap" or statute No. 39:4-138-0. There are a few problems: first off I had a valid New York issued handicap hang tag hanging in its appropriate place, so I'm not sure why I received this ticket. Also, the ticket information online says there is no fee, but it does have a court date. However, the ticket itself does not have "court appearance required" checked off . Does this mean I do not have to go to the court? If I do have to attend court, can I just bring my hang tag with me to show them that I have one?

I was treated for a broken wrist in July, 2015. The break

I was treated for a broken wrist in July, 2015. The break was in the radius bone. I have small wrists and the top of the ulna bone protrudes quite a bit. My problem is that the cast was applied so tightly, the ulna was pushed in towards the center of my wrist, changing the alignment. The space between the ulna and the bones above it (hamate & pisiform) has been severely reduced and the bones now rub against each other, causing me pain with any wrist movement. This is my right hand and I am right-handed, so this is a constant problem.The first cast was applied by the doctor and at my follow-up appointment 2 weeks later, I told him the cast was much too tight. He removed the cast and reapplied a new one. I asked him to increase the padding around the protruding bone, which he did to a small degree. This was not nearly enough padding to prevent the compression of the ulna. When the cast was removed about 6 weeks later, I was in worse shape than when I originally broke the bone. The x-rays taken after the cast was removed show the displacement.I went to see the doctor after weeks of occupational therapy to regain normal movement of my wrist, which never did improve much. At that time he suggested we try a cortisone injection to alleviate the pain. Another option, he said, was surgery to remove a slice of the ulna to shorten it and restore the gap above the bone. (Ugh!) The cortisone helped for a couple of weeks, but then the pain was back as before.I have copies of x-rays from before the broken bone, taken post-surgery from an arthritic procedure done by a different doctor in 2010, and x-rays from the break in July, 2015. I do not have copies of the more recent x-rays.I plan to go to my other doctor to have him look at my wrist. It looks like my choices are to endure the pain, or get more surgery to correct the problem. I dislike the surgical option, but I am afraid it's inevitable. I am 58 years old and do not heal quickly. Plus, now I'll have more medical bills to pay.What are my options? Is this a case of malpractice? Can I get compensated for the new medical bills?Thanks for your consideration,Mary, Needham MA

I am going to small claims court tomorrow to sue a small

I am going to small claims court tomorrow to sue a small auto dealer (not franchise) for repairs to a car I purchased. I believe they will claim that as it was under warranty, my claim against them is invalid. The insurance company denied the claim as an "improper liquid" was found in the engine. I did NOT put the liquid in the engine. Other legal council stated: The dealer sold you a warranty which was void when they sold it.But I'm worried that I can't win.
