You correctly posted this under the Personal Injury category; it is a personal injury matter. But your question remains open for two weeks. This might be something that attorneys who handle nursing home cases would be more likely to know. There is a section here for Nursing Home Abuse. Although...Read more »
Much more detail would be needed to determine if there is potential liability. Your friend should consult a personal injury attorney in her geographic area. It should be easy to find one offering a free consultation.
Yes. The owner is liable as an act of negligence, and if they have homeowners insurance may cover the dog owner for the claim. Not sure of extent of injury. If no medical treatment needed then may not be of much value. Certainly if stitches or more serious injury and medical expenses incurred...Read more »

You are writing from Fla., and therefore being seen by Fla. attorney looking out for Fla. cases. However, since the accident happened in New York, you need a New York firm to handle it.

Why are you asking this question if you currently have a lawyer? Are you doubting something that your lawyer told you, and if so, why? If a family member of a driver owned the vehicle being negligently driven, that family member could be held liable. If found liable with a money judgment...Read more »

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 go to...Read more »
Normally I would blame myself as I've never sued anyone in my life, but a few things urked me. The store is always a cluster.

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 ask my family members in Kissimmee, Florida to see if they can watch over my dog while i completed my tour in Korea. I gave them my dog September 2018 and is being over 1 yr.

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, however...Read more »
You're going to have to conduct searches, either through this site or on your own.

They won't accept your insurance. They won't accept cash. You might be better off asking your doctor for a different referral.
