From the brief description, it sounds like the short answer would likely be yes. But you should look at the contract for terms that address whether arbitration would be mandatory in lieu of suing in court, as well as other possible conditions. Good luck
You could look for one on this site or through your own independent searches. There is no section here for "Acquisition" but there are sections related to business matters, such as Business Law, and possibly others, depending on the nature of your business. Good luck
My cup ashtray caught on fire, nearly giving my husband a heart attack, and burning both our fingers. he is on ssi for a panic disorder. We called dollar tree who said their claim department would contact us. I was wondering with a fire and a mental disorder involved how much should I ask for?
I hope you are both okay from the incident. It's difficult for attorneys to assess the matter without knowing more about the product and the ensuing injuries. As Mr. Munsing says, contacting attorneys could be helpful. Good luck
I currently live in the US. I was just visiting Austria. Are there any laws in Austria that allows me to sue the car rental for negligent entrustment of vehicle to unlicensed driver? My boyfriend has a valid licence and he was listed as second driver and he drove the car and I never drove the car.
An attorney in Austria could best answer your question, as it would involve Austrian law. But your question remains open for four weeks. Under U.S. law, negligent entrustment under such circumstances would be a cause of action more likely to be raised by an injured plaintiff struck by the rental...Read more »
Hopefully, no one was injured or no property damaged as a result of the equipment being there. If that were the case, there wouldn't be grounds for a case based on negligence. Although unsecured equipment in such a setting could pose a risk of causing injury or damage, a case would not be based on...Read more »
Yes. There are high-profile examples where defendants were acquitted of murder charges in criminal trials, but then members of the victim's family brought wrongful death actions against them. Wrongful death is a civil cause of action. There are lesser-known examples, such as environmental statutes...Read more »
Unfortunately she was wearing dark clothing but was walking with the traffic. She had her cell phone light on down by her side and other cars were avoiding her. When I spoke with the police and I asked if the driver was intoxicated, mind you this gentleman tried pulling my daughter into his truck... Read more »
I'm sorry for your daughter's injuries. Ms. Nadeau and Mr. Schwartz have both generously and thoroughly identified and addressed a good number of meaningful issues here. I'd add that if the operations involved public entities (Department of Transportation, etc.), there could be notice of claim...Read more »
I'm sorry for your injuries; I hope you and your child are recovering. It's possible you could sue. But an attorney would need more information about the product and the manner in which you used it to make that determination. It's not enough that the product simply caused injury, as is the case...Read more »
It could depend on the terms of the underlying agreement between you and the photographer, in particular, what is said about the deposit. If that point is not addressed, it could be open to debate. Good luck
I signed an I pad agreeing to pay a certain amount and now I have received a bill in the mail 6 months later for $400 they are claiming the insurance didn't cover. Do I have any legal ground to refuse to pay and how do I go forward?
I would have liked to offer a more unequivocal "yes" or "no" response here, but it is difficult to offer a definite answer without knowing the full terms of any agreements or paperwork/screens you signed, and the nature of the denial. Terms and conditions imposed by the insurance carrier upon their...Read more »
A Pennsylvania attorney could best answer your question, as it could be defined under state law. As a general point, public entities such as school districts could have short notice of claim requirements. Good luck
Product liability attorneys (the selected category) aren't likely to know this. They deal more with injuries from defective products. The question might have a better chance of being seen in Government & Administrative Law and categories related to that area. Good luck
If it's minor, it could be inconsequential. If it is significant, it could undermine the formation of a legally binding contract. The state of mind or intent of the party to whom the misrepresentation was attributable would be a factor. Good luck
I'm sorry for the impact this injury has had upon your life. You chose categories that make sense for injury/disability. But you mention the Industrial Commission of Arizona. If this involves an injury that occurred in the course of your employment, and you had a workers' compensation attorney at...Read more »
Your question bridges four categories and it would be best for an attorney who is knowledgeable in Estate/Probate matters to address the estate-related aspect of it. As for the personal injury-based aspect of your question, it shouldn't be a problem for an attorney who represented a plaintiff in an...Read more »
They can assist. But the scope of things that a paralegal can do is more limited in nature. A fundamental difference (and you can go online and research the full range of distinctions between the two professions) is that a paralegal cannot generally represent a client in court. This is not a...Read more »
The writer began by saying that appellate courts read a lot of writing and unfortunately they read a lot of poor writing. The article cited some cases in which lawyers tried to win their cases by disparaging the court or the opposition. I remember laughing at the brutal way the Oklahoma Supreme... Read more »
You could check with the Oklahoma Bar Association. The problem is that many state bar associations don't go back that far with their online journals. If they don't have it on their site, you could contact them directly to see if one of the administrators could assist. Another option might be to...Read more »

I believe I may have answered this question - my response was that seeking consult with med mal attorney could be helpful in making well-informed decision about how to proceed in light of the two month window presented by judge in case. Good luck
It could be any number of reasons. One could be an issue of conflict, where if the lawyer represents anyone having any affiliation with the village, they don't want a conflict of interest, or at least the appearance of one. Another could be that if the lawyer has aspirations of handling work for...Read more »
