Since your question remains open for four weeks, you may want to reach out to Indiana attorneys to be certain of any applicable state laws. But as a general matter in most places, 18 years of age is an adult. It's no one's business, but regardless of the law, being on your own at that age...Read more »
Your question is not stated clearly enough to give you a definitive answer. If you are saying that a moped was proceeding straight, through an intersection for which it had the right-of-way and the car entered the intersection from the other road, failing to stop at the stop sign, the vehicle that...Read more »
An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. Based on the description, it would be a challenging case. You need to demonstrate significant damages, generally substantiated by medical evidence. If you choked on the plastic briefly, and then expelled it, it would...Read more »
My daughter opened the front door when her friend came over and our dog almost ran out the house. The adult who was dropping off my daughter's friend grabbed the dog's collar to stop her getting out and apparently the dog bit her. The woman left and did not say she was bitten until almost...

I can only answer your question with certainty based on Utah law, but in most states yes, you are strictly liable for the actions of your dog. Strict liability means that regardless of fault by you, or any knowledge that your pet might bite someone, by simply owning a pet you are responsible for...Read more »

I want to sue Demotte Elementary School, which is Kankakee Valley School Corp., I’m dead serious and will find representation somewhere. Most of those classmates are still residing... Read more »
It would be best for an Indiana attorney to advise, but you await a response for four weeks. You ask about what type of lawyer? A personal injury lawyer, preferably one with insight into the education system. But you are looking at a very formidable challenge in terms of the timeline here. I'm...Read more »
I decided to get a face mask while i was at the store. I put the mask on and it started burning and stinging. Apparently I'm allergic to it since my whole face is blotchy, red, and swollen for over 2 hours now. The product has no allergic reaction warnings. The product also does not inform... Read more »
It’s not inherently unsafe if you had an idiosyncratic reaction; however, report it to the CA BBB and Consumer Product Safety Commission. If you end up having serious disfiguring scars it might be worth talking for their to a lawyer.
Over the last few years I have become very unwell. I was a normally functioning person but became unwell and am still unwell. When I go to a medical provider, nothing is done to actually acknowledge what's wrong. Many times they say something similarily equal to "nah". My... Read more »
I went to this provider and stated that I had pain in a particular area of my body. He roughly and unexpectedly tapped the area with his instrument causing immediate pain to me and I reacted by coming up out of my seated position, to the Dr.'s alarm. I immediately and angrily said to him... Read more »

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...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...Read more »
There wasn't a question here, but your post remains open for two weeks.

If you already have an...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....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.
