Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered

Q. I was injured while unemployed i now have no income what can i do
A: There are a number of possibilities depending on your specific circumstances including: disability benefits (through insurance or a state public benefit), Social Security, or various forms of public assistance (welfare). You will need to discus this all with someone from social services in the County where you live.
Q. If an inmate gets attacked in his sleep because the guard on duty had fallen asleep, can the prison be held responaible?
A: It is possible but not certain that a viable claim may arise from the incident that you have described. Certainly Prisons can be sued for inmate injuries in various circumstances including cases where the injuries result directly from the criminal actions of third parties (other inmates); however, not every injury of an inmate caused by the violence of other inmates results in liability as against the prison. All of the specific facts, details and circumstances will need to be considered in order to determine whether or not a claim ought to be brought. I suggest consulting with an local personal injury attorney in order to evaluate this possibility. Also please bear in mind that lawsuits such as this are procedurally complex and very time sensitive. Time limitations will prevent any legal action unless the action is commenced prior to the expiration of those time limits. Find a local personal injury attorney and schedule an appointment to discuss all of the specific details and timing.
Q. Can you sue after 20 years as a victim off attempted homicide
A: No. Their are statutes of limitation and statutes of repose in NY that will almost certainly operate to prevent any such civil lawsuit. The only way to know for absolute certain is to consult a local attorney with all of the specific details and dates.
Q. Am I entitled to days owed to me vacation, paid holidays, & personal days due to being out of work on the job injury?
A: Whether your accrued time and leave will be paid or exhausted by your period of disability depends on a number of factors including the terms of your employment, and collective bargaining agreement (contract), and the length of time that you have been out of work. A detailed consultation with a local attorney would be advisable and most will offer a free consultation.
Q. Would my daughter have more rights than the grandparents to get custody of my son if something happens to me
A: In the question of providing for children in the event of the untimely death of a parent or parents, it is important to draft a will with a trusts and estates attorney. It is much less complicated and expensive than most people think it is. However, because so many factors enter in to the custody of minor children in the absence of a will, it would be difficult to answer this question in the absence of significant additional details. Talk to a lawyer and draft a will specifying your wishes on this issue at least.
