You don't give us a lot to go on so I'll begin at the beginning. Personal injury attorneys work on a contingency which means that they do not get paid unless they win. Regardless of the reason, if witnesses are claiming that you are responsible for an accident, a judge, jury, or...Read more »
You must be able to prove that the repair shop was responsible for placing the razor blade on your seat. That may not be easy unless you can demonstrate that you were charged for some procedure in the interior of your car that would have required or may have required use of a razor blade. You...Read more »
All parts of the plant are highly poisonous. If you are positive of the plant's identity, your neighbor must be a moron. Nobody would want to assume the liability for causing serious illness or death to humans and pets, irrespective of their age. If it is their property, they have a right...Read more »
I have a question: I was working at a local small government entity as a director. The outgoing director and I formed a strong friendship that ended with a emotionally charged discussion between us before they left. In the course of this discussion, the person said, “I hope you don’t hang... Read more »
At the time of the comment, you are both acting in your official capacity so Worker's Compensation would be your sole remedy. That said, Indiana's Worker's Compensation law does not recognize psychological injury so I honestly do not see any viable cause of action. I would urge you...Read more »
You should consult an employment attorney right away regarding your rights under Indiana law. You may have claims against your employer and/or a worker's compensation claim for the injuries you sustained.
I'm representing myself in a personal injury lawsuit.

There is a very old saying that the individual who represents themselves has a fool for a client. I don't mean to be flippant but you are going out of your way to prove the adage. You need to hire a legal professional for the same reason that you do not drill your own teeth or paint your own...Read more »
The father of my children, who lives in KY, was in a car accident and received an 80K settlement. He has owed back child support for about 10 years and from everything I read child support should have intercepted the settlement. So, something got out of order. I know that this was settled outside... Read more »
If the claim was settled before a lawsuit was filed, child support would've had no way of knowing about the claim. The attorney who handled the claim would have had no way of knowing that a child support lien existed unless his client told him or the attorney was notified by child support....Read more »
I'm sorry your question remains open for two weeks on such an urgent matter. This is something that an Indiana landlord-tenant attorney would have insight into. The question was overlooked under Personal Injury and other categories. If you haven't done so already, you could reach out to a...Read more »
You posted this under landlord-tenant law but you are asking about a power of attorney. You need to provide more details before anyone can provide a meaningful response. Questions that you should address when you repost this include:
My 17 yr old was involved in a car accident, she was found at fault for failing to yield on a left turn, the other driver was speeding and had no seat belt on and was severely injured. My policy limits will probably not cover the cost of his bodily injury. What happens in a case like this? Can I be... Read more »
My dog was attacked we emptied our bank account to pay the bill because the owner of the other dogs couldn't pay upfront. I got a fundraiser to help us in our time of need. Now she feels she doesn't have to cover the full amount. Is she still entitled to pay the full amount?
To be "entitled" is to have the right. She has the "right" to pay but NOT the obligation. The fundraiser collected money for the dog's vet bills. That money MUST be used to pay the vet. She is obligated to pay ONLY the shortfall between what you raised and what you...Read more »
It is a civil tort case. The plaintiff served me by publication and I have yet to see his original complaint, yet still just got sent a notice for deposition. The plaintiff even included costs of deposition. Do I have to go? There’s a hearing for a motion to dismiss scheduled and the courts... Read more »
If you are the defendant and you filed a Motion to dismiss, you must be represented by counsel. ASK YOUR ATTORNEY.

If you are planning to sue in Federal District Court and you are looking for a " Form," it doesn't work like that. Moreover, the Court will NOT be charitable enough to wade through more than a sentence that is as badly written as your question. I am not criticizing so much as...Read more »

An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal.
