Yes you have a case against the store that employed the assailant, if he had a history of violence and the store knew or should’ve known before they hired him. Retain counsel in your state to represent you on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t pay anything unless you win.
You will need qualified medical expert testimony that establishes the product caused your injury in order to have a good case. Product liability cases are very difficult to handle without a lawyer. I recommend you have a personal consultation with a personal injury lawyer to evaluate your case.
I have a brand new 15 foot trampoline still in the box that I bought from Walmart. If I sell the trampoline to someone, and if that person/family unfortunately suffers an injury while using the trampoline (on their property), can they sue me?
Anyone can sue anyone for anything. Your suing would not be as much a stretch as this one, but you’ll either need to pay an attorney potentially tens of thousands of dollars or secure contingency representation....Read more »

Best suggestion is to hire an attorney. An attorney will help navigate that process, and either contact the restaurant with a settlement demand or a legal complaint filed as a civil lawsuit based upon justifiable damages that you sustained as a result of the fall. Our firm would be more than happy...Read more »
A North Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It could depend on the rental agreement and what provisions it makes for coverage.

A North Carolina attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for a week. The most straightforward way is to simply ask your attorney.

I would have to read the municipal codes for Raleigh to know for sure, but as a general rule, you are allowed to defend yourself if you reasonably feel threatened. My strong suspicion is that you would be fine as long as you could reasonably claim you were defending yourself, sister, or your dog.
A North Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. As a general matter in virtually all jurisdictions, courts will allow corrections of basic information to be made. If it involves something of deeper substance beyond a clerical error, such as extrinsic evidence...Read more »
On 8/9/20 she was buried in the church cemetery where the plots are free to members who were in good standing, so there was no contract. She's supposed to be next to her husband.

I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing these problems. As for ensuring the landlord does something, the first place you should check is in your lease.

Hello I have a mother who is borderline emotionally abusive, she tells me i make everyone miserable constantly, blames me for everything that goes wrong and more. I am 16, can I move out and live with a friend legally. Can i get emancipated from her?
Maybe, but these aren't easy actions to 'win' and it would be something you wouldn't be able to do yourself. To able to file, you have to be 16 (check) and have lived in the same county for 6 months (don't know). To successfully emancipate yourself, you are going to have...Read more »

They do not require the wearing of masks even though it is state mandated. They also do not have hand sanitizer for the works at the cash registers. Although there is 6 feet apart labeled, people are invading the space of the employees and most aren't wearing masks

A workers' comp attorney could probably answer your question more meaningfully than a personal injury attorney, as you're describing something arising in the course of employment.

I'm afraid I can't help you very well as I don't understand the various relationships and don't think I comprehend what you are asking. That said, you are unfortunately only 16 and don't seem to have a lot of legal options at this point. Perhaps things would be different...Read more »
