My daughter had a 200LB sliding barn door fall on her and break her feumur bone at a relatives house and they didn't have homeowners insurance. I dont want to sue them but to find out a reasonable or typical amount paid out for an injury like this.
It is too bad they didn't have homeowners insurance. Your question is a hard one to answer though. The answer depends on the cost of her medical treatment, the age of your daughter (was she working and cannot?), the length of time she'll be treating for her injuries, her pain and...Read more »
A Missouri attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week. It could depend on what is meant by putting you at risk for injury. If they pose an immediate threat of physical harm, it could be a matter of self-defense. But the nature of the risk isn't clear from your post....Read more »
I have been in and out of Dr. offices, psychiatrist's, and Counsiling appointments since I was 12 years old, taken from my mother for child abuse and neglect. I was taken to a boy's and girl's home called The Noyes Home in St. Joseph, MO: I have been on meds every since. I have been... Read more »
It’s not a lawsuit unless you sue and have a case number. I don’t think that it will be worth your spending thousands of dollars to sue and doubt that any attorney will represent you on a contingency basis because your damages are not easily quantifiable. Plus, you are entitled to go see a...Read more »
There are two lines of rocks in this alley behind store one extends more than length of store but opposite the building, the other is about three or four of them against the back wall of the store. Now usually these rocks have remained in position; ive never seen them moved. This time drove into... Read more »
A Missouri attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week. There wasn't a question, but I think you might be wondering if you can bring a claim. Based on the description, it sounds like it would be difficult. When you say "pumps," that suggests gas pumps, which...Read more »
I find it offensive and extremely racist. It has no place in a business such as Amazon. How do I force these companies to stop advertising BLM. If they are not willing to promote Alt-Right why are they allowed to promote BLM?
My husband passed away and his family legally by default got temporary custody and my daughter saying that I was a drug addict I was not a good mom because of my drug use. I had all clean UA's to clean hair follicles and they dismissed the case before... Read more »
I was injured at work and was told that I needed back surgery because I had a compressed disc so I went through with it and it didn't help at all now I have scar tissue that prevents me from having any further surgeries to help me this was during a comp case I am disabled now and the doctors...

I'm sorry for your ordeal with your injury and ensuing surgery. Unfortunately, an attorney can't really make a call on this based on these brief facts, despite the admission made by the doctor you describe. What they can do is request your medical records, including diagnostic imaging...Read more »
I am sorry that your dog got poisoned, but I'm not aware of any Missouri case on point. My gut feeling is that a landlord is not under a duty to advise a tenant of plants that are toxic to animals. Here is a link to an old Missouri Court of Appeals case, Grimmeissen v. Walgreen Drug Stores,...Read more »
I’m still in treatment trying to deal with this constant pain and nothing helps (5 months now) anyway I called apple to ask about something like this happening before to someone else. They transferred me to 3 different people. I sent them pictures of the shock and damage to my hand and they want... Read more »
Contact a personal injury attorney near you. If you are claiming to have been harmed, it is normal for the other side to want to see your medical records in order to assess whether to pay you and how much (or, more likely, little).
Last August I went to a city meeting. The parking lot was a mucky mess due to reconstruction. Leaving the meeting I walked across a grassy strip next to the parking lot to avoid the muck, stepped into an unmarked trench that lined a newly-installed parking curb, tripped and fell. The trench was... Read more »
A Missouri attorney could advise in the best possible manner, but your question remains open for two weeks. If there is no further medical treatment and no meaningful findings of injury in any follow-up examination, and these bills are the extent of damages, small claims could be an option. If...Read more »
A Missouri attorney would be in the best position to advise you based on applicable state laws, but your question remains open for a week. As a general rule, without regard to jurisdiction, you do disclose what you were reimbursed by your health insurance - a claimant does not collect twice from...Read more »
You didn’t ask a question but I’m assuming you want to know whether to hire an attorney. If so, it’s up to you. If you could find an attorney to represent you on a contingency basis, that would be great. If you have to pay an attorney $250+ per hour, and there’s no guarantee of the...Read more »
I was put on an extended stay hotel DNR list due to rumors and nothing else. I rented the room for a week and did put another guest on my room she is an adult, I have no control over her. I did nothing wrong never had the police there, did not bother anyone. I was always in my room. Was told that... Read more »
A hotel may not discriminate against you on account of race, religion, national origin, etc., but may discriminate against you on account of merely not liking you or mistakenly believing you are selling drugs.
My mom then got on top of my sister and hit her again so my sister hit her back. Now my mom is threatening to send her to Juvy. Can she?? And since I’m 18, can I get custody if my mom is taking narcotics??
If your mom tried to report it, it sounds more likely that your sister would be placed into a foster home instead of detention. If you are over 18, then you could be considered a placement option for your sister, so long as you can support yourself and her. Report the event to social services...Read more »
The daycare staff member probably makes about ten bucks an hour. I hope your child recovers. A bruise is serious, but if your child was not harmed in a way requiring medical attention it might not make sense to sue. Unfortunately, personal injury attorneys who take cases on a contingency...Read more »
I reported it to school and the boys admitted to it & the parents said they'd pay to repair it so I filed a claim with my insurance company. The deductible turned out to be $225. Upon hearing that amount the parents now don't want to pay. They expected the screen repair was only going... Read more »
