Had a normal X-ray in the ER, followed by an ortho appointment, MRI, then surgery to ”remove the torn edges” of the medial meniscus.

I'm sorry for your ordeal with your pain. A North Carolina attorney should advise you, but your post remains open for three weeks. It isn't fully clear what the question is, but it looks like you suspect something was done wrong in your medical care. If that's the case, you could try...Read more »
I talked to a brewery about buying their WHO 80% Alcohol Formula in bulk and selling it to businesses within the triangle area in NC. I want to see what legal issues there may be and how to avoid getting into trouble.
A North Carolina attorney could advise you best, as state law issues could be applicable, but your post remains open for a week. One issue that you could consider is posing this question to a trademark attorney, as that category is not included in the selections made. You are selling someone...Read more »
Send a letter to the other party's attorney telling them you need the answer within a certain period for example 10 days or two weeks of the date of your letter to them. Offer to talk about the information and why you need it. See if you can work out a deal to get all the information or your...Read more »
Telling you that you can not come in is not 'abuse' and if she is your girlfriend - you are not 'family'. Even if you were family - the hospital likely has a right to exclude you if they deem it prudent (especially now due to the virus situation). They very likely told you...Read more »
In 2016, he did something similar and admitted digging a trench because his yard was too wet. What can I do? My yard is a mess and I am becoming ill over this level of harassment.

An attorney is going to need much more information than this to provide you with solid legal advice.

There are two different interactions with the law in this situation. The first is the criminal side which you mentioned. The state is in control of what charges to bring and the prosecution. It does seem like thet may have undercharged given then information provided.
I was in an accident (not at fault) and I am wanting to settle with the other person's insurance company. But i am under the impression that I can't do so until my passenger finishes treatment. Then and only then will the insurance company pay me.
No. But the decision will still be up to the liability examiner (together with carrier's counsel if your matter is in suit). If they have a bead on the injuries you and your passenger sustained in relationship to the limits of the policy and the reserves they set for the claim, they have...Read more »
You should not have to pay for anything if you had nothing to do with the installation of the wire. You posted this under personal injury. If that means you sustained injury and incurred medical expenses as a result of the fire, you could have certain rights, which you could discuss with a North...Read more »

As an example, exceeding a...Read more »
I suggest that you contact the attorney who filed your case. They will provide you with the right answer depending on when the case was filed, and whether the case is a class action or not a class action. Many factors play a role regarding the timeline for cases to resolve.
When having surgery I was given a spinal and I was never told about it. When giving the injection the anesthesiologist hit a nerve. When I awoke my feet and legs were numb and on fire. I have delt with this constant pain and burning in my legs and feet and have been told the nerve is never going... Read more »
You must really check with a North Carolina attorney. However, your question remains open for three weeks.

My recommendation, do not sign the release form and settle, get an attorney to represent you. I recommend that you reach out to an attorney who practices Personal Injury.

I'm riding my bicycle through my neighborhood (on the street) last night, and I come up on a lady with 2 German Shepherds loose in her yard with her. I hear her say "oh no", and the dogs start growling/barking, and then they attack me. As she's yelling "they don't... Read more »
Yes, you should be able to receive reimbursement for the medical bills you incurred. You can also receive compensation from the dog owner for the injuries you suffered. You need to show that the German Shepherds were pet dogs, and the owner did not confine them. Vicious dogs like German...Read more »

Whether the document is notarized or not does not matter. This is a simple internal payroll issue. It sounds like the employer has allowed your husband to return to work but is also docking your husband's pay because he used more than 40 hours of PTO while tending to his medical needs. This...Read more »
