Answered on Feb 18, 2018

Unless there were some factors that put the mobile home park on notice that cars were likely to plow through the fence (like prior similar incidents), I don't see why the park would be liable. Your homeowner's insurance will pay to repair/replace your mobile home. You might also file a claim with the Victims Assistance Board. https://victims.ca.gov/victims/howtoapply.aspx

Q: does a mother or a child of a gun victim has a legal recourse?

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law, Products Liability and Wrongful Death for New Jersey on
Answered on Feb 14, 2018

The easiest recourse is against the person who used the gun, but generally they don't have any money to pay you. That being said you don't know until you try and other parties may have also been responsible.

As long as you're not practicing medicine, treating patients or holding yourself out as a licensed doctor, I think you're OK. I have a Halloween costume with a white lab coat that says, Dr. Ben Dover and I wear scrubs underneath.

Q: I believe this is a product liability issue and am wondering who can best advise on how to proceed with a claim or suit?

If I understand you correctly, you have had no treatment for the receding gums. Without treatment, you won't establish any damages. Also, a "podiatrist" treats feet and ankles, not sure why one is commenting on receding gums. Further, there is no evidence that the mouthwash caused your gums to recede, versus some underlying dental condition. You can get a consultation with a medical malpractice attorney for a more detailed evaluation.

This is probably not an issue of criminal law. If you released the item to him voluntarily it is not a crime ... unless there is some reason to question the effectiveness of your consent. For example if he tricked you in the first place and never had any intention of fixing it, then it could be alleged that consent was obtained by fraud.... but that can be hard to prove unless he has done it to others.

This is probably best handled in small claims court but might not be worth the...

Q: Hello !! My son's school confiscated his vapes and they are refusing to return them to me. Ever !! Is this legal ?

1 Answer | Asked in Products Liability and Education Law on
Answered on Feb 2, 2018

Get them to put in writing why they refuse to turn it over to you.That alone may make them back down. Realize also they can give your son a hard time and is this what you want to put your marker down for? And what message does it send to your son that you want to recover prohibited items he brought to school? Maybe he'd learn a better lesson if he lost them. https://www.theguardian.com/science/2018/jan/29/vaping-may-raise-cancer-and-heart-disease-risk-study-suggests

You can have law suits but you all at some point may want to sit down to dinner again so I think it makes sense to see if there is someone that can mediate the dispute.Did you or did someone's insurance pay for the damage to the car you damaged.That's what you have to pay.

Q: What do I need to know about choosing the best law firm to sign up with for a class action suit?

1 Answer | Asked in Consumer Law and Products Liability for Georgia on
Answered on Feb 2, 2018

You need to see what they have handled so far. Some have a solid reputation for product liability work and some are just hangers on, hoping to scoop up clients who they'll then have someone else take care of. Are the attorneys members of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Assn and the American Association for Justice? How long have they done product work?

Q: Can they legally do this or can I Sue. What should I do.

1 Answer | Asked in Contracts, Criminal Law, Personal Injury and Products Liability for California on
Answered on Feb 2, 2018

Suing will be costly and you have no damages other than a third party being an idiot. If they had the title--which I assume they did--check to make sure he endorsed it to them. If so you are the titled owner. Park in visible areas.Tell him his complaint is with the tow yard, not you.

Q: How can I stop a trademark that someone has made that isn’t theirs to trademark?

1 Answer | Asked in Consumer Law, Products Liability and Trademark for Tennessee on
Answered on Feb 1, 2018

If a person has a legitimate basis for objecting to a trademark application filed by another, there are a couple of approaches that can be pursued. One is to contact the other applicant and attempt them to abandon the application based upon whatever basis there is for objection. Another is to wait until the application gets published for opposition, and then file an opposition with the Patent & Trademark Office.

The patent examiner in the United States Patent & Trademark Office is not supposed to grant a patent on an application unless the application teaches something that would not be obvious to someone of skill in the art of making tensile tents who has access to everything ever done or suggested to be done in that field.

This hypothetical person of skill in the art can understand all languages and has access to every solution ever proposed for solving an analogous problem.

Q: Which specific statutes govern long arm jurisdiction for liability concerning online sales?

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law, Civil Litigation and Products Liability for Maryland on
Answered on Jan 25, 2018

Maryland Courts & Judicial Proceedings Code Ann. § 6-103. However, long arm jurisdiction is heavily litigated and the statute is only the starting point. You will have to research many appellate opinions, both Maryland cases and the US Supreme Court, to fully understand the limits and breadth of jurisdiction, and then apply that to the very specific facts of the case.
