I am a videographer and run my own videography company. If I promote a safety product (film ads and take photos) for another company's product to be released on their social media, and that safety product ends up not being what is stated unbeknownst to me and it ends up failing and hurting...

A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. In a setting like this, there are no guarantees as to who a potential plaintiff would name in a lawsuit. If someone is merely inserting a script that the client provided without knowledge, that would probably be...View More
Seller said nothing wrong with vehicle. Said the trans was rebuilt and had a recent oil change. Upon further inspection AFTER the purchase, break lights don’t work, tailgate sticks/doesn’t stay up, battery needs to be replaced, needs O2 sensor, replace ABS control module, original VIN... View More
Unlikely. Is this a private seller? This is a classic caveat emptor situation: until the point where money and title changed hands, you had the ability to investigate, and either negotiate for a lower price or walk away. Unless the seller warranted, guaranteed, or promised you something, I think...View More
Vehicle went in for routine oil change to dealer. Was told I need a new engine. Dealer has no loaners. Car manufacturer customer service offered $60/day for rental but says I’m responsible for taxes and fees from the rental. For 9 month rental replacing a 6 passenger car costs $18k-$24k with...

I work at the rotisserie chicken section of a large supply chain grocery store. There is a restaurant that orders a large amount from us once or twice a week. As soon as the chicken comes out of the oven, it goes directly into the fridge until they eventually pick it up. They then reheat it and... View More
Likely depends on the purchase agreement, company policy, as well as the status of the part that was ordered. Demanding a refund and getting a refund are two different things, and being custom furniture, your question requires a much deeper than typical contract analysis to get a closer answer....View More
I opened a bank account and was going to have my boyfriend added as a joint account. We got the paperwork filled out and went to go process it but it didn't process because he is in collections with his separate bank. We were told he needed to pay that debt of 1st before he could be added.... View More
She found out that it was a lie. They had nickle AND lead, and some have reported the lead is toxic. Now, I know MLMs are extremely hard to catch, but they tout these jewels, necklaces, bracelts, etc as LEAD AND NICKLE free to ALL consultants, AND customers. Is there ANYTHING my mom can do to sue...

This sounds like a breach-of-contract claim. The devil is in the details, and there are more details than I can list in this format. Who would be the defendant? Is there a written warranty by the seller regarding the merchandise? Where is the defendant? Is there jurisdiction here in Michigan?...View More
Is there still a case? It was a Johnson and Johnson mesh she had put in her in 2012. She saw a Specialist in 2018 and he told her the quality of life she had now is the best it’s going to be and it couldn’t be removed. It had already broken down in her body by then and caused a fistula. Long... View More
I'm very sorry for the loss of your mother. A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week. You ask very good questions. Yes, there are product liability suits that do not necessarily involve recalls. And yes, you should try another lawyer. They may tell you the...View More
He was summons today for the remaining balance of the vehicle. It was sold after repossession at an auction. I am responsible for the debt and I want to take care of it. He has a family and I don't want to create a financial hardship on him. Can I respond to the summons asking the court to... View More
I am unaware of any way alarm companies could be held liable for a person's criminal conduct. You may have a claim for if the alarm simply did not work, but your damages would be more limited than recovery for what someone actually did to your place.
I'm not sure what you would gain from it economically. Generally, one party's liability ends upon another party's criminal action. If there is video footage of this, I'm unsure what other security measures Goodwill could be expected to take. Further, stores are usually not...View More

You can do it for yourself on your own vehicle, but you wouldn't be able to offer them for sale to others due to trademark issues. If you were to sell them at retail, you would need to obtain a license from Audi, otherwise you could be sued for trademark infringement.
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... View 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...View More
