In a situation like yours, where your property was damaged due to your neighbor's shed burning down, you may have grounds for a claim. Since the house is inherited and the current owner has not maintained insurance, this complicates matters, but it doesn't necessarily mean you have no...View More

If a woman can legally have an abortion prior to the fetus being viable (23-24 weeks) then the implication is that she is not committing a homicide.

The determination of whether the loss of a non-viable fetus due to a car accident constitutes vehicular homicide is complex and can vary by state. In many jurisdictions, vehicular homicide charges are typically applied when a person is killed due to the negligent or criminal driving of another...View More

Tearing down her electric lines. She came to me today demanding that I help her with the “expenses” of having it repaired and get the tree cut back away from her house. Am I responsible?

My guess is that your question is whether you are liable for the damages. Like most things in law, the answer is "it depends". Has your neighbor complained to you about the tree or the branches? In order to establish that you were unreasonable or breaching a duty of care to the...View More

If your husband is being denied medical attention in jail, document the incidents, contact jail authorities, seek legal assistance, and consider reporting the situation to external agencies like the health department or ACLU.
You have to decide what amount you want to settle the claim, understanding that it will likely result in an offer lower than what you demand. Take into account medical bills, list wages. And pain and suffering at the very least when making a demand.

Maliciousness is not an element of an Assault case. All that is necessary is that you prove that a person knowingly caused or attempted to cause physical harm to another without the other person's consent. So, malice is not an element.
