It is unlawful to sell a NEW car with an open recall. It is negligent, unfair, misleading and perhaps more depending on who said what and when, to sell a USED car with an open recall. In law school and "Judge" school, we learn that finding in favor of a contract being enforceable keeps... Read more »

as is the case with most legal questions, there is a need to learn more.
the contract should control........did you get permission to drop off after hours?
the challenge is that retaining a lawyer may be as costly as the PD.

Instead, it's a civil matter, a breach of contract.

which court is it to file a motion to consolidate a federal court case with a state county court case in CA?
are both cases after combined to be transferred to one court only?
answered on Apr 5, 2022

Except in certain circumstances, state courts do not generally have jurisdiction over out-of-state... Read more »

It certainly sounds like you may have a malpractice case against your former attorney for blowing the product liability
statute of limitations, but if the statute has run on the defective ladder case you will not be able to sue the manufacturer/distributor/retailer for the defect.

Hire a lawyer experienced in the subject matter of the claim. If it is a bad medical device or pharmaceutical product, hire an experienced and knowledgeable products liability attorney. If it is an auto accident, hire an auto accident lawyer. Regardless, always ask the attorney, when was the last... Read more »

YOU CAN ALWAYS SUE ANYONE FOR ANYTHING......THE ISSUE IS MORE, WILL YOU WIN AND CAN YOU AFFORD A LAWYER.
