People try to kiss and handle my daughter all the time in public because they love babies and think she’s adorable I ask them to back away and they get really mad with me. If they try to come back anyways I sometimes have to shove them away. What’s the legal standing on people attempting to... Read more »
You'd have to check with an Indiana attorney on this, as to how the kiss or touch could be defined under state penal codes or civil laws. But your post remains open for four weeks. By textbook definition, one could argue that the conduct amounts to battery, but in terms of viability, it doesn't...Read more »

My husband was involved in a rear end collision that caused damage to his spine. He will soon lose his physically demanding job due to his injury. We need to withdraw from his 401k - would this situation exempt us from paying the 10% penalty for early withdrawal? Thank you!
A tax attorney or officer at your bank should be able to advise you on the tax aspects of such a withdrawal. But the more important question here is why you and your husband are contemplating the withdrawal. If your husband is represented by an attorney in this accident, it's possible that other...Read more »
There wasn't a question here, but your post remains open for two weeks. If you're wondering what your rights are or how to pursue them in a legal action (you already realize the other party is at fault), you could contact an Indiana attorney to discuss your matter. If you already have an attorney,...Read more »
Is there any lawyer that would take my case on this matter, I want these people to pay for what happened to my daughter.My teen was sexually assaulted, the person was been caught and charged. I want to sue if possible him, the person who took the video and posted it online, also the home owner.
Thank you for posting your question. I am very sorry to hear about what happened to your daughter. To answer your question, yes, I think you would be able to find a lawyer to assist you, and certainly, at the least, to advise you on possible legal remedies, one of which may be an action under...Read more »
Based on the limited facts here, I don't suspect that there was a violation of confidentiality here. You posted this under Personal Injury. If you are the plaintiff in a personal injury case, your lawyer would provide your medical records to opposing counsel as a normal course of action. It's part...Read more »
Opposing lawyer is entitled to access to your records if you are making an injury claim. You need to ask your attorney's assistance in finding a lawyer. He has to file a motion to have the Court allow him out unless you already consented.
Depending on the statute of limitations of what state this accident occurred in you may have time, in theory, to file a claim. In the state of Indiana you would have a two-year period from the date of accident to file a claim. I will answer this question based on the state of Indiana statute of...Read more »

Rainy day... so me and two other cars in front of me were going 50-60mph(speed limit 50). The very front car was a lady with kids romping... Read more »
The first thing you need to do is take a deep breath, everything is going to be fine. Second, deliver the summons and the complaint to your liability insurance company immediately. The insurance company has a contractual obligation to defend you and to indemnify you. (This means pay any judgment...Read more »
Several people said he’s passing it around. He’s also used my position against me when I refused to see him again! How do I get justice? Can we ask for medical records and file suite against him and employer?
Because you are receiving money as a result of an injury claim, the short answer is yes, you are required to repay Medicare. BUT, because of write downs you will not have to pay as much as you think. Medicare writes down medical bills significantly. So, even though the amount billed is...Read more »
You can sue them, but the chances of that suit being successful are quite low given the immunity granted to government entities in Indiana. You'll also have the Indiana Tort Claims Notice to deal with. The best route is to pursue an insurance claim and possible a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
Indiana only requires that a formal accident reconstruction be prepared after fatal accidents. If someone died or suffered obviously life-threatening injuries, they would have taken the necessary measurements and photographs of the vehicles, gouge marks, and any other memorialization of the...Read more »
You are allowed to sue to the state, city, political entity if you have file a tort claims notice.
