They can always ask but you do not have to sign it. I would recommend you not sign it without having a lawyer review the entire document, which may not be worth the cost, considering you are volunteering.

I'm not sure what you mean by deductible, but, I'm assuming it's for attorney's fees, costs, and, maybe, anything that is owed for your medical care. If that's the case, if $50,000 is the limit, then those things would be deducted from that limit, so you wouldn't be...Read more »
My father is disabled and I have to go to the grocery store for him. A check bounced, he was informed and tried to recover the check, they said they could not find it. Months later I was arrested for the check. It was my father's, and he tried to get the check. We share the same name, I am the... Read more »
You did not ask a question, but I guess you want to know what should be done about this, and perhaps you want to know if you may make a claim for money damages due to wrongful arrest. If the criminal case is still pending, you must focus on getting yourself cleared of the charge, which means you...Read more »
I live in Florida and the state law identifies what common areas are, but the HOA bylaws say the board has broad discretion with respect to what common areas are and have used the bill only certain homeowners and as a result circumvent county zoning rules
The common areas are designated by the plat of the community and the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. The board has discretion on how to spend HOA funds to maintain common areas. I am not sure what you mean by the last part of your statement "have used the bill only...Read more »

A Florida attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. But in general, this appears to be something more complex than can be answered in the format of the three questions you pose, where you ask if this could be a discrimination, personal injury or neglect case?
Son was in a rollover accident in someone elses car. He had an avulsion wound to the knee. He has a permament scar on his knee, he will always have to protect from sun and it will never have feeling on it.
There are too many unknowns to answer your question. For example, in addition to the scarring, are there any functional problems? Any types of vocations that he will not be able to do? Even though he is 17, did he already have a job, hobby, or career goals that may be impacted by his injuries? Are...Read more »
Hypothetical Situation: A person is a child(who is of at least 20 years of age) of someone who is emotionally abusive. The parent behaves in a way in which that makes the child feel that they are in danger. The child acts in self defense and throws something that hits the parent and the parent... Read more »
If I were the judge, I would deny the request. For self-defense, the relevant issue is whether the defendant reasonably believed throwing the object was necessary to protect the defendant from threatened force on the part of the parent. Testimony of the psychiatric evaluator would be irrelevant...Read more »

A Florida attorney could advise most meaningfully with regard to state law elements, but your post remains open for two weeks. But as a general matter, it could be difficult for an attorney in ANY jurisdiction to advise based on these facts alone, despite your description offering meaningful facts....Read more »

If your spouse negligently entrusted you with the vehicle (if, for example there were no insurance), your spouse might be sued. If they were to recover a judgment, they could, in theory, levy upon your spouse's premarital property (as well as marital property).

If your retainer contract with your lawyer has the standard lien language and you fire him, he can then file a notice of lien in your case, and upon any recovery, his fees would likely be based on the amount of work he put in compared to the amount of work a subsequent lawyer would put it to...Read more »

Unfortunately, once you've settled your work comp case, and especially when a judge has enforced the settlement, there's not much you can do. Usually, if you disagree with the judge's decision, you can appeal to the First District Court, but they don't usually do much, and, most...Read more »
I was involved in an accident where both parties were deemed at fault by the officer. We traded information through the officer, and I told the other party I would be filing with my insurance when I got home, and they would be hearing from them.

If you have car insurance, it should defend you against the claim being made against you. If you believe you may have a claim against the other party (say you have injuries, car damages, lost wages, etc), then, just as the other party has done, you'd hire your own attorney. Unless you plan on...Read more »

I answered this same question under the workers' compensation topic. Here is my answer: "If your case is over and settled, your work comp attorney should have collected his/her costs from the settlement. These are costs for things, like obtaining your records, on the case. Thus, if your...Read more »
It's hard to tell from your brief description what your legal issue is. The word "abused" does not indicate which rights you believe were violated. (For example, the right to be free from false arrest or police excessive force, the right to freedom of speech, the right to be...Read more »
