my son was pulled over for a tail light while on his way to the grocery store. While pulled over neither officer had a mask and made him take his off to identify himself. While they ran his name they made him get out of his vehicle handcuffed him and sit in the patrol car with them. After waiting... Read more »
Your son should first make a complaint against the officers with the department's internal affairs. Legally, whether the officers' actions were appropriate will depend on what exactly was going on at the time, and what your son was or was not doing.
A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three days and this is clearly something where time is of the essence in your actions. If this involves someone suing for injuries from a car accident (based on the categories in which you posted), you should immediately take any...Read more »
I developed a severe gambling addiction while taking Mirapex long-term. It stopped after I quit taking the drug. This has placed me on the brink of bankruptcy. Is this a valid basis for suing the manufacturer? Do the existence of prior class action lawsuits to which I was not a party prevent me... Read more »
A Michigan attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for a week. As a GENERAL matter, It seems like it would be a difficult case to establish. It could depend on what the warning label for Mirapex includes, but the drug is generally used to treat symptoms of Parkinson's...Read more »
It's hard to say whether there is a cause of action here without knowing whether you're in a protected class--i.e., race, age, gender, etc. If you feel that your hours were cut in retaliation to your complaint, you can always file a claim with the EEOC and/or the MI Department of Civil...Read more »
I've filed in the Purdue pharma case. Was told by plantiff committee to contact an attorney to represent me in Ohio for that case against the manufacturers. I've called several attorneys they can't me as individual or they only represent states .I read there was deadline in Ohio but... Read more »
An Ohio attorney could advise best but your question remains open for two weeks. Since you've already reached out to attorneys, you probably covered most of the available resources. If you haven't already used it, there is the Find-a-Lawyer tab above. The Ohio State Bar Association also...Read more »
Good question and I get this sort of question frequently from friends. First, although you have liability insurance, make sure your insurance company informs you, IN WRITING, that injuries related to the pool will be covered. The more information you send your insurer about the pool the better....Read more »
Likely no. Our no-fault system makes your insurance company responsible for your medical bills. About the only way to get outside of the no-fault system and sue the other driver is if you suffered a serious impairment to a bodily function (e.g. paralysis, amputation, etc.). Back pain, usually,...Read more »
I don’t think I should be forced because I’m not sick I don’t have to be tested when I go to work and to me it’s a forcible action to be able to track you and follow your whereabouts in quarantine you you don’t think that’s a overreach of government
Likely yes. The medical professional could refuse services if you don't, unless it's an emergency situation. I'm not sure what benefit you'd receive by refusing. The procedure you receive could be compromised because the doctor doesn't have a complete picture of what is going on.
I had to have surgery to wire and pin it back together, the area I fell was a dangerous area unknown to me but the owner knew because I was later told he was asked to fix it several times but refused I was also told he normally had warning cones set in this are but not the day I was there, a... Read more »
It's difficult to tell, based on these facts alone. It would be helpful to know why the cones were removed, the extent of the defects involved, among other factors. You could contact a Michigan injury attorney to discuss the matter in greater detail, and that would probably enable a more...Read more »
I stayed at a hotel in Southfield Michigan and noticed the sliding glass door for the shower was coming off the rail on the back top rollers. My roommate notified the front desk about the issue and the man told him he will call a work request in and to just be careful with it. I went to take a... Read more »
Yikes! I would think so. At the very least, I would be in contact with hotel management - in the case of a chain hotel, I'm not talking about the local people; I'm talking about the actual parent company.
Whether it makes sense to pursue a personal injury lawsuit depends on a...Read more »
I was getting out of my car to go over to the service area on March 12 2019 at a carwash, I was going to get change, I slipped and fell in a shaded area on what is called black ice, as a customer came to help he also fell.
It could be, but if you consulted with a Michigan attorney who could examine more details about how your injury occurred, what precautionary measures were taken to melt or remove ice, etc., you could get a more complete picture of the respective liabilities here. Good luck
You raise a number of good issues; however, I believe it is less complicated. The school must have premises liability to cover any injuries to persons on the premises that are there legally. The facts that you allege regarding negligence help your argument and serve to defeat a defense that your...Read more »
If I got a strawberry banana smoothy from McDonalds about 6 years ago and I found a needle as a sucked through the straw. I bit down thinking it was ice and it poked my mouth. I have the needle still. I was wondering if I still have a strong case.
This is a very strange situation; I have been seeing a spine doctor for 8 years. My doctor wrote a couple scripts for medical equipment and letters to support their need. My insurance company sent letter with more questions to the doctor. I then contacted the medical records dept. of my doctors... Read more »
It's difficult to offer an answer without knowing what the letter contained and what the grounds for the denial was (medical necessity?). You could consult with a Michigan attorney to learn if they feel it would be cost-effective to pursue. Good luck
Payment. As of today January 23rd 2020 I still have not received an eviction notice however but regardless to this day I have not got a written reason why my water has been shut off or a not even a verbal reason they haven't said one word to me about it earlier that I had look into it and...

There is federal law called the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), which protects individuals from unsolicited telephone calls and texts. It allows an individual to recover $500 to $1500 per call or text made in violation of the statute. The statute is a little complicated and I recommend...Read more »

You should contact a Michigan attorney if this is something on which you are contemplating a claim. Your post remains open for a week and it looks like two-plus years have already elapsed. You should act without further delay to discuss state statutes of limitations for the applicable legal...Read more »
There wasn't a question here. If you're wondering whether the claim adjuster is liable for the amputation, the answer would generally be "no" in most any jurisdiction. A claim adjuster does not owe anyone a duty of care on the level of a medical practitioner. A claim adjuster...Read more »
had half of my left lung removed, so have a good size scar on left side. surgery went well. however it was the treatment I received in recovery that has my concern. I was treated horrible only way to describe it is as a dog. a day and a half after my surgery I was moved to a private room. a step... Read more »
I believe I may have answered this question previously because the facility name seems familiar. My response was that although you suffered a painful and aggravating ordeal post-op, you mention that the surgery went well. Med mal cases are generally based on a breach of duty. As a practical matter,...Read more »
