My husband is an inmate in a State prison in Iowa. He recently slipped on a wet floor that did not have a wet floor sign posted. Another inmate was responsible for mopping the floor & he forgot to put the wet floor sign out. Can my husband sue the prison for negligence?
I'm asking this for my girlfriend (It's a distant relationship, she is from the US and I'm from Germany ) because we need the inheritance money that she got from her father to pay for medical expenses (a lawyer already handled the money, she just needs to open the account).
One option is to execute (sign with formalities) a Power of Attorney giving your girlfriend the power to open an account in your name. It's unclear from your post whether you are currently in Germany. If you are, and the account needs to be opened in Florida, you'd need to have the...Read more »

At some points I have been put through extreme pain, and would like to find out who is doing it. At times it has been so painful that if I were to find out who is responsible I would like to kill them and eat them.
Spring I started noticing black mold in my ceiling, shower stall and underneath my wall unit. Also notice when it would rain. That my ceiling fan would leak water through it. And I have to put a bucket down to catch the water from the ceiling we're it leaks. I brought this to my landlords... Read more »

Was trying to use my bank. Badly assaulted, maimed, & falsely jailed. Video, as it was in bank lobby, shows all. I remain frightened, fearful. I'm a senior, disabled. I'll never be the same. Alone I cannot face this. Need counsel. Guidance. Badly!

I'm very sorry to hear the ordeal you have experienced. The foley balloon, once left in your body after completion of the c-section and any further medical care, became what is known as a "retained foreign object". This should never have happened. A medical malpractice claim may be warranted.
I was sent from their ER to an Out Paitent Hospital, and while under medicine by IV, I fell getting out of bed and fell against the door frame and hit my head there and on the floor. Blood was everywhere and they didn't even attend to the open cut on my eyebrow region. I have been under... Read more »
