I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing these problems. As for ensuring the landlord does something, the first place you should check is in your lease. I would not be able to tell you whether you have the right to enforce certain prohibitions in your lease, such as a smell penetrating your...Read more »
Hello I have a mother who is borderline emotionally abusive, she tells me i make everyone miserable constantly, blames me for everything that goes wrong and more. I am 16, can I move out and live with a friend legally. Can i get emancipated from her?
Maybe, but these aren't easy actions to 'win' and it would be something you wouldn't be able to do yourself. To able to file, you have to be 16 (check) and have lived in the same county for 6 months (don't know). To successfully emancipate yourself, you are going to have...Read more »

They do not require the wearing of masks even though it is state mandated. They also do not have hand sanitizer for the works at the cash registers. Although there is 6 feet apart labeled, people are invading the space of the employees and most aren't wearing masks

I'm afraid I can't help you very well as I don't understand the various relationships and don't think I comprehend what you are asking. That said, you are unfortunately only 16 and don't seem to have a lot of legal options at this point. Perhaps things would be different...Read more »

I was completely functional prior to a torn meniscus in October 2019. Had a normal X-ray in the ER, followed by an ortho appointment, MRI, then surgery to ”remove the torn edges” of the medial meniscus.

I talked to a brewery about buying their WHO 80% Alcohol Formula in bulk and selling it to businesses within the triangle area in NC. I want to see what legal issues there may be and how to avoid getting into trouble.
A North Carolina attorney could advise you best, as state law issues could be applicable, but your post remains open for a week. One issue that you could consider is posing this question to a trademark attorney, as that category is not included in the selections made. You are selling someone...Read more »
Send a letter to the other party's attorney telling them you need the answer within a certain period for example 10 days or two weeks of the date of your letter to them. Offer to talk about the information and why you need it. See if you can work out a deal to get all the information or your...Read more »
Telling you that you can not come in is not 'abuse' and if she is your girlfriend - you are not 'family'. Even if you were family - the hospital likely has a right to exclude you if they deem it prudent (especially now due to the virus situation). They very likely told you...Read more »
In 2016, he did something similar and admitted digging a trench because his yard was too wet. What can I do? My yard is a mess and I am becoming ill over this level of harassment.

There are two different interactions with the law in this situation. The first is the criminal side which you mentioned. The state is in control of what charges to bring and the prosecution. It does seem like thet may have undercharged given then information provided.
I was in an accident (not at fault) and I am wanting to settle with the other person's insurance company. But i am under the impression that I can't do so until my passenger finishes treatment. Then and only then will the insurance company pay me.
No. But the decision will still be up to the liability examiner (together with carrier's counsel if your matter is in suit). If they have a bead on the injuries you and your passenger sustained in relationship to the limits of the policy and the reserves they set for the claim, they have...Read more »
You should not have to pay for anything if you had nothing to do with the installation of the wire. You posted this under personal injury.
