I work at UPS and got injured on the job. They drug test anybody injured on the job to prove whether or not they were impaired. I use legal delta 8 THC, which shows up the same as illegal delta 9 THC on a drug test. They also use a urine test. Could they still deny me compensation/fire me even... Read more »
The answer depends. Assuming UPS has a valid no drug policy in place and that UPS can prove a valid "chain of custody" of the drug test sample, then there is a rebuttable presumption of impairment that can be overcome by showing evidence that you were not impaired.
Yes, if another medical professional in the same field is willing to testify that the doctor's actions fell below the applicable medical standard of care. Consult an attorney in your area handling medical malpractice.
Sorry to hear about your ordeal. Your question is, "Can I report the prosecutor?" Of course, to the prosecutor's supervisor or to the State Attorney him/herself (the head of the State Attorney's Office). However, if the charges have officially been dismissed, your complaint...Read more »
A Florida attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for five weeks.

For a more meaningful assessment of the...Read more »
My mom got hit by a car when she was crossing the road. She had to spend weeks in the hospital and suffered major injuries to her leg and head. I was a child at the time so my mom was not able to take care of me since she was in the hospital. So that effected our lives in that time.

It's possible that they want to investigate the condition of the vehicle for some reason. Your insurance company should have assigned you an attorney. Ask that attorney about the document they want you to sign.
No injuries and I paid the guest $300 and had it fixed within a couple hours. They said they are not suing. The guest is checking out early and wants $300 more because of what almost happened which was he was almost holding his daughter who was at the top of the stairs. Obviously no one expected...

I'm not quite sure what you mean by your employer's "accident policy." Are you talking about its workers' compensation insurance policy or your employer's short/long-term disability policy? Work comp is tax free whereas short/long-term disability is taxable. I think...Read more »
The driver of a vehicle was found to be at fault after running a red light (in view of a police officer), and causing an accident that injured me (fractured rib and partial collapsed lung). The at fault driver's insurance has officially (in writing) stepped in to "manage" (oversee?... Read more »
First, it would be extremely foolish for you to represent yourself in the described situation, unless your case has been turned down by a few personal injury attorneys. Is the latter the case? The insurer should not be "managing" you. In any event, there are two ways to obtain the...Read more »
The new sofa was ripped and I am trying to return it. They said they will not take it back because they have pics of me inspecting the sofa. I didn't see the rip until they left. I feel my privacy was violated in my home and I have no recourse on the ripped sofa.
Your options are to defend yourselves in the lawsuit, for which you should hire an attorney, or to not defend yourselves, which will result in a money judgment against you by default. Your inquiry does not indicate the alleged grounds for suing you. If they are something with no genuine factual...Read more »

Firstly, do you have your own car insurance? If so, you need to report this accident to them immediately. If you have car insurance, hopefully they can pay the cost to replace your vehicle, although, I'm sure, it won't be much considering the year of the vehicle. Did the police come to...Read more »
This is a tough one. Negligence means a person fails to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances. Whether a person should wear mask is subject to question. There is no fixed standard regarding this. Needless to say, you must...Read more »
I got ran over by a garbage truck and the person drug test came back positive for cocaine the same day and he got fired. Would that fall into intentional tort because he knew what he was doing was wrong and he could injury someone while driving high, especially a commercial vehicle?
