Legal Answers
Q. Good morning A dog attack me will I’m working and I broke my elbow I left the work for tow months
A: It sounds like you need to have a meaningful conversation with the attorney you hired. Insurance policies have monetary limits. The limits are usually lower for animal-related liability claims. Your medical bills, attorneys fees, and costs likely are coming out of the $50k limits that the insurance company tendered, and that is likely clear in your agreement with your attorney. Again, you should set up a meeting with your attorney so he or she can clearly explain your potential recovery and other options.
Q. Can you sue for safety a storage facility? I was stuck in an elevator for 30 minutes. Elevator emergency call button
A: I am sorry you had that experienced. It would not be much of a case since it does not appear that you were injured or have any meaningful damages. Report the event to the land-owner, if they are not already aware, so they can make necessary repairs. Otherwise, I'd move on from the incident.
