There is no set rule for restaurants in the situation you describe. It sounds like you made a settlement with this customer in terms of a "plan discount". While it is honorable that you are taking care of the situation, there is nothing that you have described which gets you to a formal... Read more »

I'm not aware of any legislation that addresses the matter at this time. The issue has been recognized, and non-alcohol sanitizers have been implemented in some places. But it may be up to public health agencies or lawmakers to institute industry-wide measures. Good luck

It's difficult for anyone to offer a guess on a typical settlement. Each case could be different, depending on injuries, impact on the person's daily life, liability of motorist, and contributing liability of pedestrian. There could be other factors as well, such as the insurance carrier,... Read more »

Yes a civil attorney can help you but unfortunately most will require you to pay a retainer and pay their hourly rate. A few that I know of will reduce the hourly rate if you give them a percentage of the case but they are few and far between.

Whether you are entitled is only half of the battle. Your statute of limitations is running out quickly. Normally it is 2 years but becuase you were a minor, it was suspended. You need to contact counsel asap.
The county (employer) disciplined the employee. It’s not his first accident. The county denied intent to legally represent and/or indemnify.
answered on Jun 14, 2022
I believe the employee, if accident occurred while in his employment, would be entitled to coverage from the county. I recommend filing a title 59 notice if you are the Plaintiff. The time for this to be done is short, so speak with counsel.
Or maybe if I did fall but did not get hurt.
answered on Jun 10, 2022
What would you sue for? The standard is actual damages, not damages that could have been. There would need to be an actual fall and actual injuries. In the second part of your question, where you mention falling but not being hurt, that would suggest no damages. When people sue, they generally seek... Read more »

If you were asleep it could be a defense if you never woke up. But much more information would need to be known to determine if the defense could work for you. I suggest you set up a consultation with a good criminal lawyer.
