I don't see how this is a personal injury question. It sounds like you are asking about a criminal charge. Try re-posting this as a criminal law question. To be liable in a personal injury lawsuit the defendant only needs to be found to be negligent in their conduct which caused the injury.
The decision to charge criminally belongs to the District Attorney. Whether they would pursue charges in this case is unknown. A full examination of the fact would be necessary to even guess what the DA might do. Child Endangerment might apply....Read more »

I'm sorry for this situation.

I received a demand letter from an attorney, whose client was alleging he ate cannabis edible cookies he found in my mailbox, the week before Christmas. On the alleged date of his injury, we were not home, and had no knowledge of any cookies. We do live in a legal state (Vermont), and occasionally... Read more »
This is a bit bizarre but nonetheless you should not give the attorney anything but turn it over to your homeowners and let them handle it. They will hire an attorney for you if you are sued. By the way no more posting on social websites--this one included. Good luck.
The statute 52-577d always 30 years past age of majority but the Connecticut state law to sue the state says 1 year. But if you weren’t of majority at the time you were not able to sue. So that is unjust. Is there a way around that or would I have to take it to appeal court ? I filed a claim with... Read more »

Animal control, in most jurisdictions, won't pick up pets unless they've been abused or neglected, not simply because someone calls and says, "I don't want my pets anymore." Don't know if that's the case here, but your first step is to contact animal control to ask the reason for the pick-up and...Read more »

I am sorry for your loss. If we have your husband’s name and the responding law enforcement agency, we can get a copy of the police report to utilize to file a claim with the responsible party’s insurance company to hold them accountable.
So sorry for your loss. As a cyclist myself I am concerned. I’ve worked with attorneys there on serious accidents. What city did this occur? I may be able to direct you. You should be able to get payments from his insurance.
