Q: Can my parents take my phone

Can my parents take my phone if I am 15 and I bought the phone under my own name and with my own money. If they take it away is that stolen prop

Griffin Klema answered on May 3, 2019

Whether it is "stolen" or not, I'm guessing there's at least a fair reason the phone was taken from you, even though you seem to disagree with that reason. At 15 years old, you are probably still considered a "minor" which means you are too immature to have certain rights (i.e. vote, consume... Read more »

Q: What kind a lawyer do I need for damages to a car due to negligence on the mechanics part

Peter N. Munsing answered on Jul 25, 2018

You need to figure the cost of repairing the damage vs cost of hiring an attorney. I don't know of any that would take that on a contingent fee.

Q: I broke my tooth upon eating some Turkey Jerky from Boar's Head. What is my recourse? The company has left me hanging.

John Mesirow answered on Jan 24, 2018

Assuming that you broke your tooth on a piece of bone or something else that should not have been in the Turkey Jerky, you have a claim. Not to minimize what happened, but the problem you may have in finding a lawyer is what appears to be the limited nature of your injury. You should contact a... Read more »

Most likely but sounds like you need to get a second opinion (don't mention you are thinking about a case).,

Q: I was a spectator at a softball game and got hurt when the bleacher seat I was in collapsed.

I'm pretty sure it was defective. Who would I sue to pay my medical bills - the owner of the softball park or the maker of the bleacher?

Peter N. Munsing answered on Oct 30, 2016

Either or both. If the owner should have known,the owner. Hopefully you photograpthed the seat. Contact a member ofthe Maryland Assn for Justice--they give free consults.

Q: My question is, "Which is it? A "dietary supplement" or a "drug"?

I'm in a quandary. A long time ago it was pounded into my head that dietary supplements were not controlled by the FDA and therefore did not require a prescription. Now Aetna has taken roughly 10% of its formulary and declared them over-the-counter, yet they are not available over-the-counter. I... Read more »

Q: If my father has a perscription for darvocet,and father gives son some for pain and isuffer after,can i b compensate

This cases are a challenge in the first place for a lot of reason. Certainly, the fact that you were not prescribed the medication is going to create an additional significant hurdle to your chances of recovery.

Q: My father passed away from lung cancer. How long does it take for a wrongful death case?

Ronald V. Miller Jr. answered on Mar 8, 2013

I have to give you the standard lawyer answer: it is hard to say. In the fast majority of cancer cases, you are going to need to file a lawsuit to get a recovery. So, and I'm sorry, it really depends on the facts of the case, who you believe is liable, how strong the case is, and so forth.

Q: Can an additional person be added to a complaint after the statute of limitation has run?

I am a defendant in a law suite filed for lead paint poisoning on a child. He filed suite against me on his 21st birthdad that was 11/29/2010. Can he now amend the complaint to include my wife after the statute of limitation has run out?

Terrence Rubino answered on Jul 5, 2011

the law of the state where the suit or where the alleged misconduct occurred will govern. I dont know maryland law but it depends on the allegation against your wife and her involvement in the alleged incident. statutes of limitations generally have exceptions that are spelled out by the state law.
