first, send a self-serving letter to whoever you are going to sue setting forth the facts and making a demand.
when they do not respond include the letter with the complaint to show the court you did not want to take up the courts time and had assumed they do the right thing...but they didn't. Thus you had to sue in small claims.
neither side can bring in a lawyer............maybe even contact your...
Mark Oakley's answer You get the payoff amount on his loan, and have your bank issue a cashiers check payable to the sellers auto loan company and put the check in an envelope addressed to the lender, and drop it in the mailbox in each other’s presence. Have a second check issued (or cash) to the seller for the rest of the purchase price. The seller hands you the title signed by him on the back, and you take the title to the MVA together with a bill of sale the two of you sign stating the sale price and the...
Charles Candiano's answer The situation you explain is simply not possible. A glass bottle cannot explode any more than a water glass can explode. On the other hand, if a sealed milk bottle was in the sink, before it had been washed, it is certainly possible for back area growth to result in sufficient pressure to cause the bottle to explode. that is not a design flaw. Bottles which are intended to be pressurized (such as champagne bottles) are specially designed and much thicker than other bottles. I do not...
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in California, but your question remains open for three weeks. A good starting point could be to consult with an attorney in your state to examine the recall, notices provided for such recall, manner in which fire arose, its connection to the recall, your damages, and determine what the best course of action would be to pursue any legal rights you may have here.
Mark Oakley's answer Almost certainly your use violates their trademark, and the penalties for exploiting their trademark for commercial gain to sell your product are severe (you not only pay all of their attorney's fees, but penalties and forfeiture of all profits earned as a result). Kellogg's will hire very expensive and aggressive lawyers. Consult a trademark lawyer going forward so you can understand what you can and cannot do exploiting other trademarked brands. Generally, you must obtain permission (a...
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in Texas but your question remains open for three weeks. An experienced attorney familiar with insurance law (including underwriting issues) should be able to provide guidance.
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in California, but your question remains open for three weeks. In a general sense, strict liability means that the plaintiff does not need to prove negligence or any type of intent. This is in contrast with injury claims stemming from motor vehicle accidents or similar settings, where damages are usually pursued based on a theory of negligence. If you are inquiring beyond the purposes of general information, and you are a party in a claim, you should consult with a California...
Timur Akpinar's answer In these cases, the damages are generally related to the severity of the harm. In that vein, similar to negligence-based personal injury cases, a court would examine the nature of injuries and disabilities, with a major factor being whether they are temporary or permanent.
Timur Akpinar's answer I don’t practice in Illinois but your question went unanswered for four weeks. It could be a case of a defective product and it could also be a case of an adverse reaction to a normal product. An attorney who examined the product, its constituents, your reaction to it, and supporting medical records might be in a better position to determine whether you have a case.
T. J. Jesky's answer There are different types of defects and different theories. However, to answer you question based on negligence theory, the focus in negligence will be based on the defendant’s conduct.
This would include defects that are based on : a) Negligence design; b) Negligence manufacture; c) Negligence warnings, where a product label doesn't tell you what you need to know for your protection; and
Sasha Dadan Bonna's answer I would suggest changing your alarm code and contacting the company who you are billed through to notify them of the breach. I would also contact the nearest police department.
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in Texas but your question hasn’t been picked up in four weeks. Naturally, having the product available for examination would be preferable. But in general, that doesn’t necessarily preclude a plaintiff’s rights in a claim, particularly if the item is something of a generic nature in mass production. A consultation with a Texas attorney familiar with product liability cases could provide the most meaningful guidance here.
