It sounds like you may have a case, however, you are going to need to go into more details with an attorney, in order to find out if you have a lawsuit worth pursuing. Like myself, many attorneys offer free consultations, so you will need to find someone that you feel comfortable with, and contact...Read more »
I was looking for options I can have to change my minor. But during the advising meeting I was denied to ask questions and they said they do not care what I choose. I was denied to ask any further questions on the topic and was insulting experience for not knowing what to do even as an... Read more »
What is your question? It sounds like your best course of action would be to address this issue with your university. Perhaps to the head academic advisor or to a dean of students. Many universities also have departments and deans specific to international students.
You can't create a DPOA for someone who is now incapacitated. These documents require capacity (e.g. knowing what you are doing and signing). Once incapacitated, you'll need to look into a guardianship.
My trampoline flew into a pond owned by a privately owned golf course during a major wind storm. The trampoline was anchored down and was ripped out by the wind. I live in an HOA that is next to the golf course. The trampoline is destroyed. Am I responsible for cleaning it up out of the pond?
What is the golf course owners saying? Even though it's an act of God, someone will still have to pay. Either the golf course will just do it on their own, or they will contact the HOA and the HOA will pay, and may end up tracing it back to you.
Cases are dismissed with or without prejudice. If your case involves medical malpractice, you really should not be doing this on your own because it will be next to impossible for you to successfully navigate the procedure and rules.
Ouch. If you are a tenant, the landlord is likely to be liable. The landlord's insurance carrier may offer a settlement. You could take the settlement, or, if you can find an attorney to take the case, you could sue to see if you get more. If you hire an attorney, that might increase the...Read more »
A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. However, ANY attorney would need to know more (such as the terms of your retainer agreement, and other possible agreements/amendments) before offering input regarding attorney fees on your case. If your case involved...Read more »
Possibly, in one of two ways: 1) contact police and make a report. It's up to the prosecutor about whether to actually pursue criminal charges - the length of delay may be a factor, because that's the first a defense attorney will attack. 2) if you don't want to, or the prosecutor...Read more »
I am credited on a quote on a pro-birth website. “Adoption is not a birthmothers rejection, but an unconditional love that inspires her to put herself last and do all she can for her baby”. I’m extremely pro choice and don’t like how this is used on a pro birth website.
Is the quote attributed with your name? Is it an accurate quote you said? You could contact the pro-birth website and express your concern, that you don't agree with their position, and that you'd like your name and quote removed. But if it's an accurate quote, I'm not sure they have to....
What is your theory that the county government is responsible for an individual's potentially criminal actions? You also need to consider that police and prosecutors have qualified immunity for their actions.
A more effective route to consider might be suing the person you claim hit you.

A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for five weeks. It's difficult for attorneys to reach out to you within the format of this Q & A forum. This doesn't operate like an attorney referral service. If you haven't already spoken with an attorney, you...Read more »
Is there still a case? It was a Johnson and Johnson mesh she had put in her in 2012. She saw a Specialist in 2018 and he told her the quality of life she had now is the best it’s going to be and it couldn’t be removed. It had already broken down in her body by then and caused a fistula. Long... Read more »
I'm very sorry for the loss of your mother. A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week. You ask very good questions. Yes, there are product liability suits that do not necessarily involve recalls. And yes, you should try another lawyer. They may tell you the...Read more »
Unlikely. Someone had to have legal authority to settle the claim on your mother's behalf, and when that happened, that almost assuredly extinguished any other claims she could have raised. You *might* have your own claims you could raise, but that's going to be fact-dependent. What you...Read more »
There are plenty of other personal injury attorneys available to help if you are not satisfied with your current attorney. However, sometimes it's helpful to let the attorney know how you feel. They may not know you're dissatisfied with their help. Also, cases are moving more slowly...Read more »
I see now they are offering 50$. To many people that is quit a bit of money, but in the grand scheme of things, you won't know what you're giving up unless you talk to an attorney who can give you at least a cursory overview.
