I think I answered this already. Did the tavern have insurance? That should cover the claim, get her an attorney. If the claimant settled, see the release. Otherwise, get a consult from a bankruptcy attorney. That would put the other proceedings on hold.

Peter Munsing's answer
Contact a member of CAOC who handles medical claims. They give free consults. Don't be surprised if they say the damages do not warrant their involvement. The facts don't tell me there is a violation of their duty that warrants a claim. They aren't required to do separable surgeries on the same day.

On the mesh implant if the implant was less than two years ago I can get you the name of an attorney who will give a free consult.

On the michigas with the bar, seems that she should contact a bankruptcy attorney. If she's judgment proof no downside; it stops that other litigation.

Peter Munsing's answer
Generally, you are an at will employee which means barring a union or an employment contract you can be let go for no reason at all--reasons just go to whether there is an EEO complaint, whether you can collect unemployment insurance.

Suggest you contact a member of the Utah Assn for Justice who handles employement questions--they give free consults.

Peter Munsing's answer
You would only have a case if you had injuries. An attoney will only take a case where the injuries are more than minor injuries. You can check with the prison unit of the Civil Liberties Union of your state, but don't be shocked if they tell you it's not a case that warrants their involvement.

Peter Munsing's answer
As Mr. Stevens says you need an attorney in Lake Havasu. However the questions you received were because you were focused on the impact on you. Whether there is a case depends on whether they know who did it and whether that person has sufficient assets to warrant a contingent fee case (as opposed to you paying a lawyer by the hour).

As to what you are going through, suggest you get a therapist who focuses on grief counseling and look for survivors groups. Your problems are...

Peter Munsing's answer
If this is for a homework question, my advice is you'll learn more doing your own research. The UCC is not a federal law but adopted by states. They can adopt as little or as much as they wish. Other laws are enacted because the Code tends to be written by the corporations for the corporations, not for the consumer.

Peter Munsing's answer
See if they won't knock the amount down. Go to the township see if there were work orders or payments to erect a sign AFTER your ticket. Not sure what you mean by "advisory"--that's a limit.

Note also all roads have a limit. What's the limit on the road before the sign you agree is there? It may be 5 miles back but your argument would be that's the limit if it's in your favor.
