You should first find lawyers in your area that handle mold cases and then start calling them to discuss your case. I always suggest someone try 3-4 before making any decisions if they all are not taking on your case. Keep trying is the best advice.
The rowhouse homeowner was doing renovations & hired a contractor to remove the old oil tank in the basement. They dropped the tank and oil spilled on basement floor. The smell permeated the walls of the adjacent rowhouse causing an overpowering smell. The dog began throwing up. The 6-month-old... Read more »
I assume you meant St. Charles, Maryland, and not Missouri. First, try calling the county department of the environment or health department to report the toxic spill and contamination affecting neighboring properties and health.
Second, call your homeowner's insurance company and...Read more »
This has been going on almost 6 months now. Have been consulting with Legal Services Alabama. But it seems we've reached an impasse. My biggest concern is whether apartment management will replace any items that must be discarded. But they're refusing to do that. And my renters insurance... Read more »
This is something that an Alabama attorney is best suited to advise about, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal with the mold and the mold-induced asthma. At this point, you could reach out to injury attorneys who handle mold cases. Each state can have...Read more »
We just received the below email: This email is to inform you of some serious and ongoing health issues I have been having since approximately October. After numerous appointments and extensive testing, as of last week, my doctor has concluded that there may be something in the house that could be... Read more »
As a CYA measure, I would seriously consider getting some form of testing out there. They may be blowing smoke, but if there is a real issue out there, you are going to want to know about it and get it checked ASAP. If you don't, you could be accused of being negligent and that is the point...Read more »
There is a Canadian company that was just found guilty of knowingly polluting a water source with raw mercury and lead slag (,the Columbia river). The toxic pollution was significant enough that it flowed into the United states. They were charged in an American court. I lived in the town that this... Read more »
This is something you should consult with an attorney in Canada about. I am very sorry you suffered this ordeal. In the U.S., venue for a lawsuit can be based on the location of the defendant, with additional tests applied to corporate defendants. An attorney in Canada should be able to advise on...Read more »
My neighbor is doing major earth work on his property for new construction. He excavated a natural drain and installed 32" subterranean pipes, roughly 100' of these pipes are on my property. He has also knocked down a coconut palm tree located on my property. He also excavated a bank... Read more »
The quickest way would be for you should request an immediate "cease and desist" order from the Municipal Court of the town where your property is located, and request the courts to deliver the order to your neighbor. The Petition should be accompanied y evidence of your title ownership...Read more »
I got a warning from a TPWD Game Warden for no hunter's safety certificate. I was told to email proof of completion to the local judge and the issue would be resolved, i wouldn't have to appear in court (I have already done so). There is a handwritten appearance date at the bottom, what do I do?
They say they are allowed to dump there by the City of Sedona, I stand above the drainage pit all day for 9.5 hours every day, for 8 years, burning eyes, throat, lungs. I have complained to my boss, his boss, the business that's dumping, and the city of sedona, who says they are allowed to do... Read more »
Thank you for your inquiry. I see a couple of issues you want to follow up. I would first contact the Arizona Department of Occupational Safety and Health (https://www.azica.gov/forms/adosh2213) and the US Department of Occupational Safety and Health (I don't have a link to the federal form),...Read more »
I know at one point there was a letter sent to my grandmother in regards to a settlement but it was determined we wasn't zoned in. I understand we were zoned in at a later date. My grandmother and grandfather both died of cancer in that rachet town because of the oil spill and I feel justice... Read more »
I'm sorry for the loss of your grandmother and grandfather. You could search online for case records of individual claimants under the spill (or its associated clean-up and remediation efforts), or whether a class of plaintiffs was formed. If venue for the action was in Missouri, another...Read more »
The first question you have to answer is whether New Mexico treats an "arroyo" as a "watercourse" or as a mere "drainway" for precipitation. Most states disallow blockage of a "watercourse" (bed, banks and reasonably consistent source of water) unless...Read more »
I suggest you revise your post because it is hard too follow and too vague to answer. I assume you meant you received an "injury" rather than an "inspection." If you were injured at work, contact a workers' compensation attorney to evaluate the situation.
I recently took a flight on Southwest and ended up catching covid. They have mask policy’s which everyone followed but in the past, the middle seat in the aircraft was always empty. I couldn’t imagine the crew doing a sterilization job in the time they pulled in and we boarded. After getting... Read more »
In a lawsuit I think you will need to prove 1. that you contradicted your illness on that flight and 2. That you got it from the person sitting next to you and 3. That the airline failed to follow rules established by the government. Other issues are likely to be the vaccination status of you and...Read more »
An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks, and you express some immediate concerns about the safety and welfare of your family. One option here is to repost your question and include Landlord-Tenant as a category. Although all your category selections make...Read more »
Adjoining landowners are entitled to adjacent and subjacent support of their real property. But to prove this Tort will be difficult. Some type of engineer will be a necessary expert witness here. Also contractors will have to testify as to the costs of restoring the land, that is a large part...Read more »
