Q. was driving Sunday night and a big piece of metal was in the street on the bridge of where there is alot of constructon
A: I agree with Mr. Thorgaard, but his answer works only if you have comp/collision coverage. If you don't, or if you'd rather not make a claim to your own insurance, you would set up a claim with the insurer of the entity that left the piece of metal in the street. Might've been a county/municipal entity's own employees or, more likely, a contractor of the county/municipal entity. I would start by asking your local Public Works Dept. If you couldn't settle with the insurer, then you'd need to file suit, which would be in small claims court if the repair costs no more than $8,000. In the less likely event that the county or municipality itself is responsible, rather than a private company, and they are "self-insured", then you'd have to submit a notice of claim to the entity with certain language strictly required under Fla. Statutes Section 768.28, giving it six months to settle up with you (and if not then settled, you'd need to file suit). That would get into a lot of technicalities you'd need legal advice for.
Q. Aunt filed unlawful detainer. and told to move I'm on ssdi. what can I do for help
A: You could try the Fla. Bar Lawyers Referral Service and ask for a Low Fee Panel attorney - see https://lrs.floridabar.org/ However, in the event that there is no law that protects you from the code enforcement authorities, there is little or nothing a lawyer can do. Schedule a consultation ASAP, and if it turns out that you have no legal protection, seek the help of social service agencies that help people avoid homelessness. I don't know about such agencies up your way, but here in South Fla., the county court clerk's office maintains a list of such agencies to give to tenants who have been evicted. Perhaps your local court also has such a list.
Q. Hi, how to file injunction, to stop neighbors loud music bass,which forms online do I need?
A: I would be surprised if you were to find forms for a Florida court action of this nature - but to check, contact or go see the Clerk's Office for your local court. They also can inform you of the filing costs. Aside from filing costs (of a few hundred dollars), there would be a service of process cost (probably $40-50) either for the Sheriff's Office or for a private process server that you would hire. For this type of action, it's best to hire an attorney, or at the very least, consult an attorney for tips on self-representation, including appropriate language for a court complaint.
