You did not ask a question, but I assume your question is, "Can I make a claim?". Probationary termination cases are tough, since the employer needs no reason whatsoever to terminate, but at the same time, the your race, sex, age, national origin, etc. cannot legally be the reason for...Read more »
Early in the morning while inmates were asleep, one inmate took a broom and broke it over the face of a sleeping inmate. Then took the broken end of the broom and hit another inmate sleeping in the next bunk across the head. As other inmates close to the area woke up, the offender paced back and... Read more »
I was literally forced to give away my Bella, I am disabled and I have had my little girl for 8 years, she became my emotional support dog, I lost a child in 2003 Bella helped me with that loss, she got sick and I took her to an animal hospital, the vet told me she needed an operation that was...

Makes no sense, and sounds like you've been defrauded. Are you saying that giving her to the shelter gets the dog FREE surgery, then the dog belongs to someone else?? - but for you, it would cost $5K?? Also, euthanizing, at most clinics, costs WAY LESS than $500. First, run back to the...Read more »

I havent plead guilty to my sales charges from a year ago because im afraid if i do they are going to charge me with the dealth resulting.

Your case is in New Hampshire, but you posted this inquiry to Fla. attorneys, who cannot advise you unless they happen to be a member of the New Hampshire Bar. In any event, this is definitely not an issue that you can get an answer to from any attorney, anywhere, simply by posting an on-line...Read more »
The Fla. limitations period for both damage to personal property (dog) and negligence (other than professional malpractice) is four years. This answer is given as guidance only. Any time there is an issue of your claim being potentially barred by the statute of limitations, do not rely solely on...Read more »
You have not specified why that would be harmful to you. I would imagine that an apartment for the handicapped would have more benefits than a regular apartment, not less (for example, a larger bathroom and being on the ground floor), but I have no familiarity with it. You also have not specified...Read more »
You definitely can file a small claim, and during the pandemic, Fla. courts are doing everything remotely (video or telephonic hearings). However, when the time arrives for them to start up in-person again, you might have a problem. The first stage in small claims, after filing and serving the...Read more »
Until the Court grants the motion to withdraw, your attorney is ethically obligated to represent you, and that includes advising you how to appear at the hearing, so I would start by asking him/her how to get on Zoom. Even without his/her help, the option of CALLING into the Zoom hearing does not...Read more »
I recently relocated from Georgia and I received a motion to dismiss hearing request in a State Civil matter in Florida. I want to respond to the motion, but I am not aware in Florida how many days I have to respond.
The opposing party asks for a date for the hearing, but I want to request... Read more »
It sounds like the other side is attempting to coordinate a hearing date with you. If you need more time to search for an attorney, the first step is to make a friendly call to the other side's attorney and ask if he/she will agree to set the hearing X days out (such as 30 or 45) because you...Read more »
That depends on whether you are in State or Federal Court. In State (Circuit or County), motions to dismiss are set for hearing, and the plaintiff has the option of filing a response at any time and arguing at the hearing, or instead just argue at the hearing. In Federal, the Local Rules for the...Read more »
the roots from that tree to encroach onto property, damaging our chain link fence and yard. I have been trying since September to resolve the issue with the apartment manager, but to no avail. We were told by an arborist that it is not safe to remove the roots of a tree because the tree itself will... Read more »
Your insurance company's obligations are spelled out in your policy. The company apparently is relying on policy language to deny the claim. When denying a claim, more often than not, the insurer is correct about the exclusion language, sometimes it's incorrect, and sometimes, the...Read more »
My situation is that I am trying to remove my brother and his girlfriend from my home. There is no lease. I am not seeking money from them. I just want them gone. I served them a certified notice to quit allowing over the 15 days to evict. That was on the 9th of October. They were suppose to be out... Read more »
"Without prejudice" is synonymous with "may be refiled", but the statute of limitations does apply. Therefore, it may not be refiled beyond the limitations deadline. However, laypersons sometimes don't realize when the limitations period actually starts to run and...Read more »
Getting medical attention for my broken knee and back and neck pain? The doctors tell me to contact an attorney before they can treat me due to the extent of injuries they were aware of me being the only one involved and i believe i have 25000in pip but im still dealing with a broken knee and no... Read more »
Did they explain why they told you to contact an attorney? Could they be confused and think you were the victim of another, at-fault driver? Your insurance company's PIP would cover up to the first $10,000 in bills (minus any deductible), then your health insurance, if any, would cover the...Read more »
The steal beam was run out the back pass-through window, out the back of the truck and 2 ft into the road from his driveway. There was a small red flag secured to it via surran wrap. The truck was unattended and it was dark outside. I did not see it and I hit it with my golf cart. The back window... Read more »
The issue here is whether you SHOULD have seen it. If most people would not see it, and you were driving in a normal, safe, and legal manner, then the accident would be the other party's fault because it would be foreseeable to the other party that he/she was creating a hazard during the dark...Read more »
Our son wants to press charges on his ex-girlfriend who ran over his foot with HIS car, but officer is saying he can't because he went in front of a moving vehicle. Briefly: Oct. 25, as son drove into the parking lot of ex-girlfriend's residence (she was passenger), an argument started.... Read more »
Whether criminal charges may be initiated is solely the decision of law enforcement - either the police or the State Attorney's Office (prosecutor's office). If the reporting officer refused to either charge or commence a criminal investigation, you could try the intake office of your...Read more »
Not under Fla. law; however, if there is a lender involved, it might require it, and if the mobile home is in a mobile home community/park, the landlord might require it. The following link gives good info for consumers regarding homeowners insurance in Fla.:...Read more »
I am a Home Health Physical Therapist Assistant (1099 Independent Contractor) in FL. I have professional liability insurance but want to make sure my personal home, retirement, savings and investment accounts are safe if I am sued. I set up a single-member LLC, but my accountant recommended to... Read more »
You seem to be concerned about protecting yourself from any professional malpractice suits, which is what professional liability insurance is for. If you provide your services under an LLC, you'd need to insure both the LLC and yourself individually, and if that causes a substantial...Read more »
They keep sending me a bill for durable medical device my medical insurance has paid in full. I have called multiple times and have written letters providing the proof it has been paid & asking them to stop harassing me and they will not stop.
You're writing from NV but posting to FL, so it's likely that this will be seen only by FL lawyers, who cannot comment on NV law (without researching it). Also, I assume you mean the company that sold the device, not a collection agent for the company (which triggers a different set of...Read more »
