As the owner of the vehicle, you are generally liable for the actions of persons you permit or allow to use the vehicle. You do not want your brother's legal and financial problems to become your legal and financial problems. Steve Dashiak's answer is spot on. There's an old... Read more »

A Texas attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal. You could reach out to the law firm(s) involved in such suit(s) - it appears you did some research and determined a current suit is pending. Keep in mind that if the matter involves... Read more »

Charles M. Baron answered on Jul 20, 2021

You did not say if you got sick from the yogurt. If you did, and you went to the emergency room or an urgent care center, save the yogurt and promptly consult an attorney. If you did not get sick, your remedy is a refund from the store.

Lynn Ellen Coleman answered on Jul 20, 2021

You will need qualified medical expert testimony that establishes the product caused your injury in order to have a good case. Product liability cases are very difficult to handle without a lawyer. I recommend you have a personal consultation with a personal injury lawyer to evaluate your case.

The effect that this might have on your insurance rates depends on your prior driving record and your insurance company. There is no mechanism for tickets automatically coming off of your driving record absent some type of agreement with the prosecutor. I don’t necessarily expect it to affect a... Read more »

Yes, someone from Canada should generally be able to sue.

It is very hard to analyze your case with the little bit of information provided. You should sit down with a personal injury attorney who can get all the information and explain what options are available.
