1.Question: If I am injured on the job and have Workers Comp. can my employer reduce my pay while I’m on online duty?

Answer: They don’t have to give you overtime or bonuses but reducing pay is an issue and you should probably consult with an attorney.

2.Question: I was riding my bicycle on the shoulder of the road. A car passed me and almost immediately made a right turn in front of me and we hit each other. Who’s at fault in something like this?

Answer: Bikers may have right of the way. If you are hurt, you should contact an attorney as the driver is at fault.

3.Question: I have an amputated leg and get around on crutches. If I fall in a store from wet floors that aren’t marked, is that my fault?

Answer: It depends on how long the floor was wet. You might have a suit, contact an attorney.

4.Question: My company decided to paint something outside and got overspray on every single employee’s vehicles, including my brand-new truck. I am having a hard time getting them to own up to it even though we sat there and watched them do it. What can I do?

Answer: Find out the company that did the painting and go and file in a small claims court if they deny through regular communication.

5.Question:I fell at a theme park at an evening event. I do not drink and was wearing sneakers. It was a fog machine in the middle of the sidewalk, I got a hematoma and have been in a lot of pain for 2 weeks. They offered to pay my small doctors’ bill and give me some tickets. Should I accept it?

Answer: It may be a lot less than what they should pay you. Contact an attorney so they can figure out what your damages are. Do not sign any agreement before consulting with an attorney.

6.Question:I broke my back on a job last year and my employer still has not paid the medical bills.

Answer: You definitely need to speak to an attorney or feel free to contact me at This is not legal.
