You will need qualified medical expert testimony that establishes the product caused your injury in order to have a good case. Product liability cases are very difficult to handle without a lawyer. I recommend you have a personal consultation with a personal injury lawyer to evaluate your case.

You are the next of kin with regard to real estate. If you die without a will in NC and you are married and have a child: you spouse inherits 1/2 of your intestate real estate and a portion of your intestate personal property (if you die with personal property worth $60,000 or less, your spouse...Read more »
This is impossible to answer without a review of the entire contract. 6-8 weeks is pretty vague. There are no doubt other terms of the contract. Any attorney who would say "yes" is letting you, a non attorney, interpret what part of the contract is important and what part is not...Read more »
You have to either admit or deny each paragraph of the Complaint. You also need to plead any affirmative defenses that you may have.

She will not talk to me at all, changed phone, won’t even discuss school, health, etc about our remaining minor child. Once COVID protections are lifted our lender will foreclose. She won’t talk but I need to sell. It is best for her and kids as well. I am unemployed for over a year
It sounds like you are separated from her. The only way possible would be to file for "equitable distribution" and the Court could enter an Order requiring her to cooperate with the disposal of any marital assets. Otherwise, you cannot force her to sell. You should get an equitable...Read more »
Only the creditor can file a Notice of Satisfaction of Judgment.

If you made no payments but received a Form 1099C cancellation of debt, your Judgment was not "satisfied" or "resolved" or "paid off". They can still legally collect on it even though on their books they deemed it "uncollectible" and wrote it off of their...Read more »
I had a lien on my property associated with a judgment. The lien was satisfied but the judgment remains in the court records. It expires in 5 months. Is there any way to have it removed immediately, or does it have to expire. The creditor said they will NOT extend the judgement.
If you paid the judgment directly to the creditor, send them a letter (use certified mail or priority mail so you have proof of delivery and save a copy of your letter) demanding that they advise the Clerk of Court about the payments you made and advise the Clerk that the judgment is fully...Read more »
I’ve been working with a debt settlement company for almost two years and my discover acct is the account that I received a Court Calendar and a Motion for Summary Judgement. I’ve almost been making payments to my debt settlement company for two years as well.
You won't go to jail if you don't show up, but a judgment will be entered against you for the full amount owed. In order to keep a judgment from being entered against you, you need to file an Affidavit which controverts one of the facts necessary for them to get a judgment. That needs to...Read more »
Most likely, yes they can. There is always "fine print" associated with airline fares and they can charge different amounts based upon the time of day, day of the week, % of seats filled on the flight, etcetera.

Read more »
Unfortunately, since there is no signed contract, the verbal agreement is not enforceable. Try to work out something with the landlord to get a few more days time in exchange for the time and labor expended cleaning up the house.

My SO lives with me in North Carolina for almost two and a half years now. Her mother was served a summons & complaint at her home in New York regarding a debt collector attempting to get a judgement against her. A couple of questions:
You need to ask this question in a New York forum, because New York law applies to New Yourk lawsuits as far as what she needs to do to answer the lawsuit. Depending on the type of contract she signed, it may be completely legal for her to be sued in New York. There is not enough information here...Read more »

Complaint to corporate. Give negative ratings on the product and on the store. You can't sue them in small claims because they are not an NC corporation. Court costs alone for District Court are over $150.00. The money you lost is not worth filing a lawsuit over. Stop giving them your...Read more »

Ms. cameron is correct. I would just add that they can't garnish your wages with a North Carolina judgment. If you bought the bed in NC its likely if you were sued, they would sue you in NC. If you bought the bed in TN or VA, wage garnishment is allowed if they sue you there and get a judgment...Read more »
