Israel Piedra's answer The short answer is: anyone can sue anyone for anything. The longer answer: you would need to show that your injury is a result of negligence in order to prevail. You should speak with an attorney. Most attorneys would only be willing to take on your case on a contingency fee basis if the injuries/medical bills were relatively substantial.
Israel Piedra's answer One of the following must apply to file for divorce in New Hampshire: 1) both parties live in New Hampshire, 2) the petitioner (the spouse starting the divorce action) has lived in New Hampshire for one year, or 3) the petitioner lives in New Hampshire and their spouse can be served with divorce papers in New Hampshire.
Israel Piedra's answer Call an experienced malpractice lawyer if you think you may have a claim. Abramson, Brown & Dugan in Manchester have a reputation as the best in the state for medical malpractice. http://www.arbd.com/
Israel Piedra's answer If you're talking about the New Hampshire Supreme Court, most appeals (including personal injury cases) would be "mandatory," i.e., the Supreme Court would always accept the appeal, assuming the correct procedures are followed. The Court might not hold oral argument in every case, but they would accept the case and issue a decision.
Israel Piedra's answer Typically, you would file a motion to reconsider first in the district court, within 10 days of the district court's final decision.
You have 30 days from the date of the district court's decision to the Supreme Court. An attorney can help you determine whether you have any appeallable issues. Typically, fact determinations will not be overturned on appeal, only issues of law. You must have "preserved" any appeallable issues either at trial or via a motion to reconsider.
Israel Piedra's answer He doesn't HAVE to pay anything until a Court orders him to. If the A/C is really that old, it's probably not worth much and I find it unlikely that someone would file a lawsuit (and pay a filing fee) for such a small amount. Even if they did file a lawsuit, they'd need to prove negligence or some other reason your husband is liable for the cost of the A/C.
Israel Piedra's answer You should consult with a Connecticut attorney or post on the Connecticut board. In New Hampshire, grandparents can petition the court for visitation rights: http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/rsa/html/xliii/461-a/461-a-13.htm
Israel Piedra's answer You should act quickly to protect your uncle's rights. You likely have claims against the cousin for breach of fiduciary duty, among other things. Your legal options will vary greatly depending on the facts. Speak to a civil litigation attorney as soon as possible.
Israel Piedra's answer It's impossible to estimate, but you can learn about what factors the court will consider. My firm recently did a blog post on this subject. Read more here: http://lawyersnh.com/helping-nashua-divorce-clients/
