Kid hit head on a misplaced display rack that was sticking out in toy section. We didn't go to doctor. Walmart was very rude and not helpful when it came to filing claim and trying to talk to management. Walmart offered 500 dollars. The negligence of the display is worth more than that to me....

This would be a premises liability case against walmart for having an unsafe condition on their property. If there was not any medical treatment it will be hard to prove any kind of substantial injury. Unless there was some kind of large cut or significant scarring, without any treatment it will...

We were told that she was end stage COPD they had... Read more »

What you outline is a potential medical malpractice case. An expert medical doctor would have to review the records to determine if the doctors/hospital acted below the standard of care and if that malpractice led to her death. Additionally, you will have to discuss with attorneys whether, due to... Read more »
About five months ago, I heard from the paralegal, telling me my attorney was standing before the judge and would be waiting to get a trial date. I have not heard from them since and they will not return my phone call, is this normal? If they dropped my case, I would certainly hear from them... Read more »

A Kentucky attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. At this point, you could send a short note asking for an update. No one here would know whether they dropped your claim. But if that was the case, most law firms would send client a letter to the effect that they... Read more »
I was in an accident over a year ago and hired a lawyer the same day. However they haven't done anything at all for me including file any suit and I'd like to fire them and hire a different firm but I'm not sure how that works?

Simply NOtify the first lawyer inWriting that you are terminating his services and ask him to send the file to the lawyer you are hiring.
When he hit it he diddnt stop at first and the goal was hooked to his van and when he dragged it he also hit our mailbox with it but now he is saying it's our fault for the goal being that close to road and he isn't paying for it
I was watching some videos and was curious if person A could sue person B even if person A put themselves in a situation that they knew could possibly put them at risk of injury.

A Kentucky attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It sounds like you are talking about the legal defense known as "assumption of risk." It depends on the particular circumstances. On cases where the defense is raised, the conditions can be fact-specific. Good luck

Can a law suite be filed against a doctor that refuses life saving surgery for someone addicted to drugs?
answered on Aug 5, 2022
A Kentucky attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. Until you consult with local attorneys, as a general matter, it sounds like a lawsuit that a law firm would be reluctant to consider. A doctor cannot generally be forced to perform surgery. Additionally, a doctor... Read more »

You’ll have to file a lawsuit against the family and the estate regarding the ashes, but certainly nothing is going to be accomplished by 7/30/22. I am not sure it would be worth the cost of filing suit, but that is certainly your decision.
This would include my biweekly paychecks, current bank account, car insurance, and vehicle. I have not been sued yet, but anticipate it happening in the next 3 years. Would it be legal for me to transfer all these assets, to get them out of my name, prior to any lawsuit being filed?
answered on Jun 2, 2023
This sounds like fraudulent conveyances. I believe you can be sued for doing this with the knowledge that you are likely to be sued. I would consult an attorney who can analyze all the facts of your particular situation.

The questions were rumor based, they had nothing to do with school. My daughter is 14 yrs old. Is there any legal I can or should take against this?

There’s probably no legal action to be had but you might want to discuss this matter with the counselors school superiors.
Got a letter in the mail that I had to be in court after being attacked years ago in a gas station, they could never recover the video cause the workers knew my attacker and the police didn’t really seemed bothered to even help me so I never could press charges, I was maybe 25 at the time. 6-7...
