Contact a personal injury attorney right away. You have a limited time to sue for your injuries, so any delay may prejudice your right to file a lawsuit to recover for your injuries.
As I walking on the treadmill, I tried to tell a girl who used it wrongly and dangerously. The girl did not hear me as she put on the headphones. I did not notice the warning light. A few minutes later, I was panicked and stopped the machine which was wrong. I should have slowed down the machine... Read more »

I agree with Mr. Gribow. Consult a personal injury attorney who will review the contract you signed with the gym. If their machine was defective they cannot just tell you they're not liable. You usually cannot waive liability for their negligence or for a defective product.

I would send a demand letter to the driver's address informing him what your injuries were and that you intend to sue him for personal injury unless he provides his insurance information. That will usually get a driver to cough up the insurance so they don't have to be personally liable... Read more »

Is this an unfair business practice and how can I get my money back?
answered on Nov 14, 2022
This may be an unfair business practice, breach of contract and breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, depending on more facts. Was there a written contract for the job? If not, were the terms of an oral agreement later referenced or set forth in an email/text? Was the contractor... Read more »

It depends. Does the contract with the contractor provide that all disputes be resolved by binding arbitration? Who referred you to binding arbitration? You can file a motion to strike (or demurrer to) the Superior Court complaint based on the binding arbitration provision in the contract, but... Read more »

Yes, that case has not been overturned. Are you the member whose membership is being questions/revoked, or the golf club? Either way, it would behoove you to contact a litigation attorney to discuss the matter in detail.

If the matter in controversy is less than $10k, it is the exclusive jurisdiction of small claims court and a case for that amount cannot be filed in Superior Court. If the losing plaintiff...

I am appalled to hear that these things happen to children, especially by a public school employee. You should pursue your rights to collect damages from the responsible parties.

You can switch insurance companies now without a problem. The duty of your insurance to pay on a claim relates to the operative time period of the policy, so if you had coverage with the former insurance company at the time of the accident that policy is responsible to pay the losses associated...

It sounds like there was some fraud committed in the changing of the disposition agreement. You have legal rights when someone commits fraud in such a situation. I agree that you should consult an attorney for a consultation as to what your legal rights/remedies are.

If the settlement was not put in writing, signed by both parties, and you made clear to the judge that you did not in fact agree to the settlement number the other side agreed to, then there is no enforceable settlement (i.e. no meeting of the minds with regard to the terms of the settlement).
