Dealer never repossessed vehicle, even after I returned the keys and provided the adress to the vehicle. Car shows clean title on vehicle reports but I never received it.

This isn't really a personal injury question so take my answer pessimistically. In my opinion you should return the car to the dealership as you've forfeited your ownership of it in exchange for release of either your auto loan or lease obligation. At the very least you need to contact...Read more »

Losing your job should not cost you your workers compensation benefits. Also, you should speak to an employment attorney about whether or not they can legally terminate you due to injuries sustained on the job.
Your son being hit in the face isn't legal, that's battery. If your son was injured there is a chance you could sue for his injuries, but it'll be an uphill battle unless they have homeowners insurance. As far as the druggie allegations, libel or slander are very difficult to show.
I was walking out of my garage going to get mail. Next door neighbor's dog ran up to me and started barking. While the minor who was with him told me he (the dog) didn't bite, the dog instead bit me three times. One of those times left a mark on my lower leg. I spoke with one parent who... Read more »
