I called police to see if I can report the other two. Got the run around in Jackson county. I finally was told I could report her father biting her.

A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for your injury. In such a setting, the hospital could raise the issue that based on its observations, it saw no lawful grounds to detain a patient. One option you have is to reach out to attorneys...Read more »
This is something a Michigan attorney could advise best on, but your question remains open for two weeks. You could ask your attorney to sit down with you and go over the figures with you. It sounds like you have a large lien(s) on the case. Without knowing more, it could be from any number of...Read more »

You have two potential issues: 1) medical malpractice, and 2) nursing home abuse / neglect. The latter is one you can more readily start by contacting the facility, omsbudman, or the state's complaint website. The former would require gathering medical documentation and finding a medical...Read more »

I was a passenger in a motor vehicle accident. Upon suit, the driver of the vehicle in which I was alleges the other driver is liable. The alleged other driver failed to file an answer to the complaint with the court. How will the case proceed?
The school system is providing free meals to all students this year and in order to prevent my kids obtaining gluten I submitted the required special diet form signed by our doctor. My kids don't normally have hot lunch but we felt forced to submit the form. They also have some items to buy... Read more »
The first question to ask when contemplating a law suit is what are the damages? Did your son suffer a reaction to the extent of being hospitalized? Law suits are expensive and unless you have some provable damages, you may want to just voice your concerns to the school administration.
You will need to contact a lawyer who handles personal injury and real estate matters in the county you lived. There are so many intervening factors involved that can significantly limit a landlord's liability, and so I would encourage you to be realistic in what you can recover from the...Read more »

What is your question? It sounds like your best course of action would be to address this issue with your university. Perhaps to the head academic advisor or to a dean of students. Many universities also have departments and deans specific to international students.
You can't create a DPOA for someone who is now incapacitated. These documents require capacity (e.g. knowing what you are doing and signing). Once incapacitated, you'll need to look into a guardianship.
My trampoline flew into a pond owned by a privately owned golf course during a major wind storm. The trampoline was anchored down and was ripped out by the wind. I live in an HOA that is next to the golf course. The trampoline is destroyed. Am I responsible for cleaning it up out of the pond?
What is the golf course owners saying? Even though it's an act of God, someone will still have to pay. Either the golf course will just do it on their own, or they will contact the HOA and the HOA will pay, and may end up tracing it back to you.
Cases are dismissed with or without prejudice. If your case involves medical malpractice, you really should not be doing this on your own because it will be next to impossible for you to successfully navigate the procedure and rules.
Ouch. If you are a tenant, the landlord is likely to be liable. The landlord's insurance carrier may offer a settlement. You could take the settlement, or, if you can find an attorney to take the case, you could sue to see if you get more. If you hire an attorney, that might increase the...Read more »
A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. However, ANY attorney would need to know more (such as the terms of your retainer agreement, and other possible agreements/amendments) before offering input regarding attorney fees on your case. If your case involved...Read more »
Possibly, in one of two ways: 1) contact police and make a report. It's up to the prosecutor about whether to actually pursue criminal charges - the length of delay may be a factor, because that's the first a defense attorney will attack. 2) if you don't want to, or the prosecutor...Read more »
I am credited on a quote on a pro-birth website. “Adoption is not a birthmothers rejection, but an unconditional love that inspires her to put herself last and do all she can for her baby”. I’m extremely pro choice and don’t like how this is used on a pro birth website.
Is the quote attributed with your name? Is it an accurate quote you said? You could contact the pro-birth website and express your concern, that you don't agree with their position, and that you'd like your name and quote removed. But if it's an accurate quote, I'm not sure they have to....
