I have a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. I required a prescription to get it (in addition to about $10k) but it was easy to get. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy does not claim any official benefits and is done at anti-aging clinics, among other places. Can I run a business where people rent my chamber by the... Read more »

The idea behind a patent is that the inventor discloses the invention, and in turn, the government gives the inventor something of value: the ability to keep others from using the patenting invention for a limited time. After the time runs out, anyone can use that invention.
The disc is called the charite artificial disc. I was sold on it that it would fix everything. But it's been mostly lots of pain since I had the surgery and have not been able to work since I had it done. It also needs to come out and I need to get a fusion surgery. The revision surgery is...

I was originally told I wouldnt be held responsible since I was in possession of the keys

I'm sorry that happened to you. The process here will be dictated by the contract with the rental car company. Assuming you have insurance, the worst case scenario is you've got to pay the deductible for your own insurance company.

I'm terribly sorry this happened to you. You're going to need to know the make and model of the knee replacement before calling an attorney. There are many lawsuits filed for medical devices such as this. They are contested until the very end, but you may very well have a claim.... Read more »
I am wanting to sell a glow in the dark dog leash but there is a patent, however I have found various ones on Amazon infringing on the patent because they are not the same product just extremely similar so can I sale the leash myself?
answered on Dec 21, 2020
You should not sell any products that infringe on valid US patents. Figuring out whether or not the product you want to sell infringes on a given patent is sometimes a tricky thing to figure out.
Though I haven't read the patent you're referring to, I think it unlikely that it... Read more »

I suggest you see if a law librarian at one of DC's law libraries can help you. There isn't enough information there to figure out if it is a case that is being reported or what.

Workers comp approved my claim, said I may have a third party lawsuit as it was proven there is a Benzene/Acute Leukemia connection and Benzene contributed on a more probable than not basis.

A consultation with an injury lawyer who has experience with toxic tort cases could be a good place to start. These are cases involving exposure to hazardous substances.
Workers comp was approved, UW Center for Excellence Occupational Medicine determined Benzene contributed. Why is it so hard to find representation? A guy spills McDonalds coffee on his lap and it's a slam dunk, but LEUKEMIA??? No.
answered on Oct 18, 2018
Good for you for looking.
Short answer: extremely expensive to prove in court, and the Supreme Court made it very difficult especially if the problem (leukemia) is something that can be caused by just .....being.
Second problem is the statute of limitations issue in your state.... Read more »

This is not so much a legal question as one of manufacturing. You usually have to have a prototype to be able to say how it will function. As getting a patent is long and complex, and expensive, suggest you may want to consult a patent attorney--they may answer that first question. The second is... Read more »
Check my VIN number but it only goes back 10 years
answered on Aug 22, 2016
Unless you bought the car recently, with that vintage it may well be a replacement ball joint one or two front end jobs ago.
I don't see that you can really make a claim, but if it resulted in a crash contact a member of the State of Washington Assn for Justice--they give free consultations.
My dog dose no harm to anything and he got out of his fence quite a bit here recently and chases the neighbors cats he don't hurt them he just Chase them. And the neighbor said if it happens again he will shoot him.
answered on Jul 26, 2016
The neighbor can't shoot them because of hunting laws which prohibit firearms use near houses (don't tell the neighbour --they will use something else). You say he got "out of his fece quite a bit" --that is called a nuissance in the law. You need to fix your fence, get a new... Read more »
I have become steadily more allergic to everything related to polymers and all fruits and vegetables that are in the Latex family. I am currently being treated by UW clinics
answered on Jun 25, 2016
It is difficult to show that allergies are caused by the mesh and not to a change in your immune/autoimmune system. Assuming it can be shown, there are other issues. I suggest you contact a member of the State of Washington Assn for Justice who handles "medical products."
