Q: Defendant's lawyers claim attorney client privilege, and defendant sparsely answers interrogatories?

Defendant's lawyers are trying to provide extremely limited responses to interrogatories by every argument possible, to the point of making discovery moot!

If you have a lawyer that is a question you should ask your lawyer. However, it is common for lawyers, especially those representing insurance companies to object to most every question asked. It is how many lawyers "litigate". Most jurisdictions require a good-faith conference before filing a... Read more »

You haven't asked a question. I assume the question is, do you have a viable case? In order to determine whether you have a viable case, you will need to speak to a qualified product liability lawyer in your area. However, any lawyer will want you to save the package, medically document the... Read more »

I am sorry to hear about your injury. It does sound like you have a potentially viable claim against the owner of the property. A fan should not fall, typically without negligence of some kind. In fact, there is a legal doctrine called "Res Ipsa Loquitur", essentially means the thing speaks for... Read more »

Q: I don’t know if I have anything here. But thought I would ask. Better to ask then always wonder and wish I'd of asked.

My child was diagnosed with pneumonia 9/9/19. The prescription of Azithromycin was filled at a CVS pharmacy. I gave her a dose Monday and Tuesday. When I went to give her a dose today I noticed the expiration date was 5/19. I had been giving my 6 year old child an expired drug for 2 days. How... Read more »

I agree with both of my colleagues answer. In order to establish a case for negligence against the vendor of an expired drug, you would have to be able to establish that there was a causal link between the medication and the harm caused to your child. Only a doctor can tell you if the pneumonia... Read more »

Not easily. thi8s is not a Maritme law issue and probably not one of criminal jurisdiction. What would the arresting officer do with the arrestee? Without at least the Ship's Captain and Chief Security Officer involved, the "arresting" officer could be liable for civil damages for false arrest,... Read more »

Yes, however the better question is do I have a right to claim damages suffered by your daughter. While you do also have rights, the ultimate issue will be who controls (supervises) the money until your daughter turns 18. If the case is not yet in suit, you can hire a lawyer to advise the...
