Lawsuit filed for PI with faulty. My husband and I hired lawyer. Contract is with husband AND me. Plaintiffs are husband AND me. The settlement was offered and lawyer called husband and made agreement without even talking with me. Aren’t I just as much a part of the case as well? Even though he... Read more »
You should have asked this in Justia › Ask a Lawyer › Puerto Rico› Personal Injury ›, but my guess would be that your lawyer should have got your approval as well as that of your husband. Refuse to sign the release if you don't want to accept it.
It depends on the state jurisdiction. In Illinois, all jury trials need to be unanimous. If not, that would lead to a mistrial; a "hung jury." You should contact a FL attorney for the answer in your venue assuming you're speaking about a FL case. A federal jury case requires a...Read more »
If the defendant (manufacturer, dealer, etc.) can prove that the accident would not have occurred but for your modification, I don't believe you could successfully sue. Speak with an attorney who does product liability litigation.
Possibly, but don't know for sure. Best advice is to consult with a Mass Tort / medical malpractice law firm in your area or near your area. Those types of firms will be in the best position to handle that type of claim.
tickets. One for the improper left. Another for expired registration and the last for proof of insurance. I later found the insurance for the car and it was expired also and the decal was from last year. I brought this to Turo’s attention and they let me know that they would take care of it....

Potentially yes, as to the insurance issue and the expired registration. Your case against them will be civil, whereas the 3 tickets against you are likely traffic related. While they revolve around the same issue, your civil suit against them or claim of a civil suit will not absolve you of...Read more »
Problem as in we get a fine, commit a crime/felony, or if it is possibly considered impersonating a physician.

As long as you're not practicing medicine, treating patients or holding yourself out as a licensed doctor, I think you're OK. I have a Halloween costume with a white lab coat that says, Dr. Ben Dover and I wear scrubs underneath.
I have contacted FedEx, UPS, USPS, and Nordstrom. We still get her stuff. I have sent back all of them so far, but it's getting ridiculous. At what point are they no longer my responsibility? Can I ever just ignore them, throw them out, etc? I've gone above and beyond, in my opinion, by... Read more »
Not sure that there is a Legal answer here. You will just have to use your judgment. I personally do not think that you have any responsibility. The very weird issue is that this person is apparently paying money to buy products and yet is not getting the items. The whole situation seems very...Read more »
While under the influence of any mind altering substance you are not in your right mind to make proper judgement or any choice. Therefore if a person was drunk before deciding to drive, would not this be more of a temporary insanity induced by chemical substances. How could the person have made a... Read more »
In short yes. The decision to drink and drive is a crime. There is no escape by claiming insanity. There is quite literally thousands of pages of case law on the topic. Many have tried this defense before and it always comes up short. If you have been charged with drinking and driving, you...Read more »
Like many legal issues the answer depends on numerous factors. These include issues like the make, date and the time of discovery of your defective implant. Also, if a class action already exists you could potentially join or you may choose not to join and bring your own direct lawsuit. If a class...Read more »

In any product defect case that caused an injury or damage of some kind, the products themselves must be preserved in the same condition they were in at the time.
