In florida throwing a rock at someones car is projecting a deadly missile. My question is if someone throws something at your car in a road rage incident that can injure you or your passengers is it legal to shoot back (stand your ground law). I need professional legal advice from someone who knows... Read more »
Your question is vague as to the timing of the events, as well as the specific danger posed by the rock-thrower. You may "stand your ground" with reasonable force that is necessary for self-defense - that is, to stop an ongoing attack that may cause death or great bodily injury to you....Read more »
You are being sued for the accident, I assume. if you had insurance, contact your insurance company; they will defend you. But no, you don't have to have an attorney, although it would be a very good idea to get one.

Since it your seems to have been the one to have caused the accident (unless there was something that the semi-truck did wrong), I don't think your son would have a successful personal injury case verses the semi-truck. Hopefully, your son has bodily injury (BI) protection, which is what the...Read more »
Your question is too vague. I suggest you re-post with short description of what caused a newborn to be taken. And by "defac", do you mean DCF (Dept. of Children and Families)? And by "notifying you parents", do you mean notifying the parents of the child being taken away?
Yes, you can sue. The real question is what, if anything, will you recover? A lot more information is needed to determine how much you may get if successful or if you may even be successful. Remember, there's something called comparative negligence, which reduces your recovery (if you go to...Read more »

It sounds like you have two types of cases here: 1) work comp as you were injured while performing your normal job duties, and 2) personal injury verses the driver of the vehicle that caused your accident. I'm not quite sure why you're not getting work comp benefits, but there's not...Read more »

A complaint from a person in a car crash was filed against me with many interrogatories and questions for me to answer, and they asked that I respond to them. However, my insurance claims representative told me to not worry about anything and that they will handle everything and ask me for help if... Read more »
It seems that you are being sued by the other person involved in the auto accident. In that case, your car insurance will represent you by hiring an attorney, if they haven't done so already. The attorney should reach out to you to discuss the accident, so they know how to answer the complaint...Read more »
Nearly died choking on plastic from frappe that I bought from McDonald’s . Immediately went to the nearest gas station and poured my frappe in the sink so that I could see how much plastic was actually in there or if it was just one piece. I found several pieces of very sharp plastic in the... Read more »
A claim could be made against McDonalds. You should retain an experienced injury attorney as soon as possible to evaluate your claim. Most experienced injury attorneys will offer free case evaluations.

You can often treat with providers on "letters of protection" and not pay up front, but out of the proceeds of a case. Generally, medical providers offer this if you have an attorney pursuing an injury case. You should consult with an experienced injury attorney as soon as possible.
The settlement was offered the first week of September 2021 . I was told if I accepted the settlement I would receive the monies by December 2021 no later than January 2022. That was the reason I signed the DocuSign accepting The settlement offer which I thought was very low for 10 years of... Read more »
You can fire your attorney at any time for any reason, but the terminated attorney would then have a lien on your case for his/her fees and cost expenditures - and in some cases, that can scare off other attorneys from taking the case. You did not state the reason for the delay, which seems...Read more »
Whether your car was legally towed is a fact intensive question and would require a site inspection where you were parked. Regardless of whether you were legally towed, if you were injured as a result of the vehicle being towed while you were in it, you should immediately contact an experienced...Read more »
If your fiance had nothing to do with the accident (no involvement, no vehicle ownership), she cannot be sued. However, if you happen to have any assets prior to marriage and, in order to avoid paying a judgment debt, shift those assets to your future spouse or to yourself and your spouse jointly,...Read more »
Unfortunately, there is no specific timeframe to be sent to a doctor. 5 days after the date of accident may seem like a long time, but I've seen way longer. Delays in medical care are typical under work comp, even though the Statute says your benefits should be provided quick and efficiently,...Read more »
My attorney suggested that I get financial funding to pay for my shoulder surgery they suggested the company I should use for the funding. The interest rate is really high. My surgery was October 2021 and the debt has went from $7000 to $12000. I have been off of work for 10 months my funds are... Read more »
In my view (and other attorneys may have different views), the type of "legal loan" you are talking about should only be used as a last resort for medical treatment purposes. That type of loan is what we lawyers call non-recourse legal funding, which means that if you lose your case, you...Read more »

Believe it or not, pharmacists can refuse to fill prescriptions. If you had a written prescription you should have been able to go to another pharmacy without getting a new prescription from the doctor.
There is a statute of limitations for almost every crime, as well as for every civil cause of action (meaning grounds for lawsuits). I cannot give you a legal opinion in this forum on whether you are beyond the limitations deadline at this point, but you are probably beyond it. See Fla. Statutes...Read more »
