Yes, in Florida, you can have a judge determine before trial that a defendant is liable for your injuries, but only on a plaintiff's motion for summary judgment, which is rarely granted. If it is granted, you would then have a trial on the issue of damages only. If it's not granted, you...Read more »

You may very well have a case. However, Florida law is not always favorable to victims of a slip and fall incident. In Florida, if a person slips and falls in a business establishment, the injured person must prove that the business establishment knew or should have known of the dangerous...Read more »

The teenager family just moved in to the neighborhood 2 months renting the house. My son walking home from the bus stop. This 14 years teenager grab him on the neck and punch him. My son is only 11 years. Is there any possible we can sue them.
Yes you can, but whether it would be worthwhile for an attorney to take your case is another issue that depends on various factors. If your son needed no medical treatment, most or all attorneys will not be interested. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area.

I’m a 19 year old female dating a 16 year old male who will be 17 this month, which is November. We started dating before I turned 18 so we have been together almost 2 years. I’m wondering if I’m allowed to spend the night at his house legally with his parents permission? Because his parent... Read more »
Spending the night at his house is one thing; having sex with him is quite another. The former is ok; the latter may be a problem. But there is a close-in-age exception which probably applies anyway: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_the_United_States#Florida

A civil case against the people who attacked you? Perhaps.
From what you have indicated (Using a cell phone perhaps; It is very hard to read?), it appears you have a valid defense to any criminal charges. You don't indicate that you assaulted anyone, including the 13 year-old boy,...Read more »

They won't accept your insurance. They won't accept cash. You might be better off asking your doctor for a different referral. You could delve further into the insurance coverage, reviewing the guidelines and determining your rights. It's a personal decision in how determined you...Read more »
You might be better off reposting in the Business Formation & Business Law categories. Personal injury is for accident-injury cases and Products Liability is for people who have been injured by dangerous/defective products. Good luck
