The utility may be- but there has to be proof the utility knew or should have known the line was down and for a sufficient time that the utility could respond. If the line went down as the result of storm- and had just fallen the utility generally wouldn't be liable.
A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. If you haven't already, just concentrate on working out reasonable terms for getting your car out of there for now. Each day it sits there, it continues accruing storage fees. You could sit down with a...Read more »
When she attempted to enter the room she was told Covid-19 policies prevented her from accompanying my daughter, this was after my wife had paid the fee. My wife was told that there would be only females in the exam room. My obvious question would be, is this legal? Of note, my daughter suffers... Read more »
This is a different world we live in for now. Medical Providers are trying to find a way to provide a relatively covid safe treating environment. I wish this had been explained better before you got there- so that maybe some of the anxiety issues could have been dealt with. My guess is your...Read more »
I have Multiple Sclerosis & had osteonecrosis from steroids. The surgeon gave me one option, partial knee replacement. He did warn me of a possible MS exacerbation and I said I understand that, I have had them before. He did not warn of permanent disability, severe muscle spasms, stiffness,... Read more »
Medical malpractice cases are far too complicated to answer on a simple forum such as this. You should shop around for a local attorney here on this website or elsewhere to review the facts and records of your case to best determine your options.
Yes, you have a few options to attempt to resolve this issue if the company knew that the vehicle was in an accident but concealed that information from you and you were not able to determine that the vehicle was previously involved in an accident through the carmax or a similar report....Read more »
A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. A starting point could be to consult with a Tennessee injury attorney - they could research or consult with disability attorneys as to whether such measures would have been included under federal or state...Read more »
A Tennessee attorney could advise best here, but your post remains open for two weeks. The answer to your question could hinge on whether the hole you describe was the result of breach of a medical duty of care, among other possible issues. That's something a medical professional would be...Read more »
He may be being neglected and or abused and seems to be being help captive by his wife. Who herself has never shown the mental or physical capacity to care for another individual let alone one who is not ambulatory or verbal.
I'm sorry for your difficult situation. Your post remains open for a month and you may be better off simply reaching out to Tennessee attorneys here (Find-a-Lawyer) or searching independently on your own. This isn't really a lawyer referral service - it's only a Q & A Board. Good luck
You may. I recommend you reach out to a personal injury attorney if you want to discuss further. In general, companies like Lowe's have a duty to ensure safety of their customers. Here, they may be liable for your injuries which may be severe if you are required to have surgery and lose time...Read more »
My mother wore the necklace all the time. During the Coronavirus lockdown of her facility, she put it in the side compartment of a luggage bag, because I wasn’t allowed to visit to pick it up. When I picked up her belongings after she passed, the bag was missing.
You will need a competent attorney to evaluate your possible Case of Conversion. Evidence that the necklace existed and was stored in a certain place will be necessary. Heresay will not work. The value will have to be shown, which will probably be questioned. Your standing will be important....Read more »

Your post remains open for a week. You could try reposting under the Workers' Compensation category. It would have better chances of being picked up there than in the Personal Injury category. Good luck
I was held against my will at a local hospital for weeks while they drained my insurance and abused me. The hospital doctors used all sort of claims and lies to keep me there under a psychiatric hold. This removed all my rights as a patient as well as my civil rights. I believe they did this...

I fell on ice at work because the employer refused to clean the ice and snow off. They did however take me to the ER where they took an X-ray and said I had a very bad concussion. Now three years later it feels like someone is sticking me with a branding iron between my shoulders.
She had surgery to repair 3 broken bones in her leg. She was there with a friend at this rink. She skated before, and is a beginner, just not at this rink. There was a sign posted skate at your own risk. But no idea there were no rails on the wall. She was never asked to sign anything. Can they... Read more »
There was legislation proposed several years ago to limit skating rinks from liability. I don't believe this passed. But I haven't checked for purposes of responding. In the absence of a special statute limiting liability, the roller rink would be liable for premises defects that are...Read more »
Probably. Ask your employer if they have worker's compensation coverage. Make sure the employer has notice of the injury. If the employer doesn't - and they are a contractor- you will likely need to talk to an attorney as contractor's are generally required to carry worker's...Read more »
development projects that add even more traffic to the same street without any improvements and traffic accidents increase as a result of overly congested streets, could the city be held liable for injuries and damage to vehicles since they knew the street was over capacity but continued to...

You raise an interesting point, and in a textbook-type analysis, your argument would be strong. But in reality, this takes everywhere, and most courts would not be likely to consider such arguments. Most courts would limit their analysis to the immediate parties at hand. Good luck
