If you suspect that your son's mentor engaged in grooming behavior and sought a Power of Attorney (POA) under questionable circumstances, you may have grounds to take legal action against the company. The company could potentially be held liable if it failed to properly supervise the mentor or...View More
Such a case may be possible. An opinion from another doctor needs to be obtained (probably by a lawyer) indicating that the doctor acted below the standard of care and that caused the harm. Additionally, due to the nature of medical malpractice law and litigation, the viability may be determined...View More
To sue a surgeon for medical malpractice in a trigger finger surgery case, you must establish that the surgeon breached the standard of care, directly causing you harm. This typically involves demonstrating what the standard of care should have been, showing how the surgeon deviated from it,...View More
I currently work in Arizona for a non-profit and have not been employed with this company for 12 months. I will be out of work for a minimum of 6 weeks and should fully recover in 12 weeks. Can I apply for anything to compensate for my bills after the surgery that did not occur on the job?
An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. This is something that an employment law attorney would know best, in terms of PTO or leave programs, or the applicable policies of your employer. Some questions remain unanswered on this forum, but you could...View More
Good afternoon. These are very complicated cases and require extremely specific evidence of the extent and location at the workplace of the mold growth, the exact type of mold, the nature of exposure (how long and how close to her work area), absence of any other potential mold exposure, and...View More
I used to work for a company that had a data breach last year. I have extensive knowledge of the processed areas available on their servers. They didnt report the breach properly and it is understated to the public. I feel I should help a class action lawsuit with this. My information was... View More
An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Defamation generally involves a false statement that results in harm to dignitary interests (reputation). That isn't fully clear from the brief description. However, more important than that is the suit you...View More
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... View More
Wow this is a great question and one I have not thought about before. I would ask the at fault driver's carrier to cover the cost of replacement under the property damage portion of their claim. Remember that they should cover all property lost or damaged as a result of the accident. If there...View More
I was assaulted in my apartment complex parking lot by a neighbor. Im a disabled veteran and i was helpless. He was beating me up for 5 minutes and the whole time im thinking that everything is getting recorded on 4 to 5 cameras that were around us. But police officers were familiar with this... View More
Sorry to read about the issues you are going through. I am a service connected disabled veteran and I empathize with your frustrations. In terms of your questions I will try to address them one at a time.
You may be able to obtain an order or protection against the assailant but I am not...View More

An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. There wasn't a question included, but if you are wondering if the incident rose to the level of providing you with grounds for a med mal case, it doesn't sound like it. There is generally a need for showing...View More
Without more facts, the only answer is "it depends." If you were on private property with permission and the landowner had not taken care of the land and structures, then potentially you have a claim. If on public property that is maintained by a public entity and they neglected their...View More

Did this happen in Arizona? I am only licensed in Arizona so I cannot comment on other jurisdictions, but if this was an AZ collision and the other party was at fault a lot of times medical providers will treat with a lien so you do not have to pay out-of-pocket. In addition to the medicals, you...View More
I was getting walked around this high shcool by staff trying to locate my equipment. We were led to a closet that had no light, a big opening by the door way that dropped about 8 ft in which I fell from landing on my head and shoulder. There was no light, signs, or warning from staff prior to me... View More
An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. It's possible you could. I hope you are okay - the extent of injuries sustained would be a factor if it is case that would be viable to pursue. The best way to answer your question is to reach out to Arizona...View More
I apologize to the person submitting the question, but I don't understand how this is a work injury related question. There is no Industrial Commission office in Payson, only in Phoenix and Tucson, and an appeal would be filed there or at the Arizona Court of Appeals, again with locations only...View More
Failed to fulfill their duties and little regard to Ethics code that is supposed to be followed… Failed to apply well known law rulings applicable. This is in relation to personal injury claim/suit where I was 100% not at fault.
You might have a case. Medical malpractice means that a doctor violated the standard of care. A bad outcome is not enough. Another doctor would be needed to evaluate what the doctors did. Consult with experienced attorneys.
Edit- I do not know if I was actually under investigation or not, obviously the matter was dismissed because I never heard anything from cps. The kids don’t live with me, and I don’t use substances. CPS told my sister that my ex made the report and disclosed the names of my kids.
Yes, if the caseworker lied and told your step sister you are under investigation for substance abuse and you are not in fact under investigation for substance abuse you may have a valid claim for libel against the caseworker individually
