IF they tried and failed to fix under warranty, you have a warranty law claim. Warranty law is lemon law. So, you have a lemon law claim. Contact a lemon law attorney for more insight.

Q: Hey, so my friend is 19 and is moving out soon. But his dad is stealing and breaking his stuff. Is this legal or illegal

Ik it seems like a silly question but better to be safe than sorry

Tim Akpinar answered on Dec 12, 2019

I'm sorry for your friend's ordeal. Unless the possessions are very valuable, he is probably better off just getting stuff out for safekeeping as quickly as possible before further damage instead of losing time from work or school in court. Good luck

Q: Hi, I lived in France but in 2011, I bought a laptop in NYC. This Apple laptop has an original manufacturing device.

I'd like to know which law is applicable? The French or the New York State law?

I'm not sure what you mean, but generally it would have to comply with the laws for sale of the country where it was sold as they were in 2011. However the US has few laws for computers in terms of what they must have.

Q: Found out my unlicensed brother gave my questions year old minor son at least 5 tattoos. What can I do legall
Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Dec 10, 2019

if your son was under age, technically your brother committed an assault. You need to take the youth to a dermatologist for starters. You can also sue him but if he doesn't own much that may not get you anywhere.

First, the fact they are defective as a group doesn't mean yours are unless yours failed. Otherwise you have no case as you haven't been hurt.

Why not get a consultation with a member of the West Va Trial Lawyers Assn that handles product cases--they give free consults.

Q: What can I do if the apartment complex I stay at entered my apartment and left my doors unlocked and items where stolen

They acknowledged they dropped the ball with not locking my door, but only offered me $1000 when my losses were over $13000

Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Dec 10, 2019

Ask for the 13,000. I assume you filed a police report and can document the value? Note that the value you'd get in court would be the value as they were. Tell them you expect the 13. Chances are they are trying to avoid an insurance claim.

mental distress claims are really difficult and technical. Contact some injury attorneys and get an estimate. If you didn't get medical treatment the answer is very little at all.

Q: Does the us class code that registers a product that I sell outside the US affect me?
Tim Akpinar
Tim Akpinar answered on Dec 8, 2019

Product liability attorneys (the selected category) aren't likely to know this. They deal more with injuries from defective products. The question might have a better chance of being seen in Government & Administrative Law and categories related to that area. Good luck
