Is the initial aggressor in a fight solely responsible?

What would be my option in a settlement for future medical problems? Should I release any future responsibility for medical problems for a settlement of 10,000? I have 2 herniated disc and 7 bulging disc in my neck and back.
You write too well for a person who is apparently clueless about how releases work. If you sign a release, you give up all future rights.

If you are a seaman whose employment originated in a US port, and you were...View More
I do not suppose you hired an attorney to represent your interests and advise you before you were convicted of the charge. It is too late to change the dui. You have 30 days to appeal a conviction. And if you oled to the. harge, the only
So this was a few months ago, this kid (and trust me I'm probably not the first or last person he's threatened, he's notoriously a bad student and he creeps me out because he pervs on me sometimes, but he was asleep in class, which was normal for him, and I tried to wake him up... View More
