You are right. It's up to them to give you good title. Otherwise sue them for the money paid.

It would probably be very difficult, particularly with the current health crisis. If it relates to injuries that are discussed in trial proceedings, those always appear in court reporters. But even when unified court systems or legal databases post PDF files of decisions or motions, medical... Read more »

You could repost this, adding Criminal Law to your categories. It looks like you're asking about "Accessory After the Fact." That's something a criminal defense attorney would know about. Good luck

Yes, it's possible you could sue, based on your injuries. I hope the two of you are okay, but keep records of any injuries sustained in the fire, in abandoning the vessel, and awaiting rescue in the water, if applicable. This could include emergency room visits, follow-up doctor visits, etc.... Read more »

It would have to be proven that your renal failure was caused by the formula and no other product, through expert testimony. I don't see it, and then there's the statute of limitations issue, but for you to have some closure why not contact an attorney in your area that offers free... Read more »

Ask for a refund. I assume you didn't have anaphylactic shock. Understand you do not get a recovery for what could have happened but for what did happen.

Q: Can someone get a vehicle financed but get the check in someone else's name without them knowing?

I sold the vehicle about 6 months ago but received a message today he financed it. He said the finance sent it to the bank but the check is in my name. He wants me to cash it for him. What does this mean for me? I was unaware of this till I received the message asking me to cash it for him.

Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Jun 12, 2017

You would know if he financed it. If you sold it you got the proceeds because it's in your name.

He should ask you just to sign the check over to him.

I am referencing MDL 2326 vs Boston Scientific with an average of $4.6 million (5.6m average including punitive damages). My case is particularly similar having several surgeries and damages.

Ask your attorney. Short answer is that the first trials are usually better than average because the plaintiffs have been hand selected. MDL settlement amounts may be lower also because there is a tendency to as a whole give a little less than a jury might win. Also, on damage issues, most trials... Read more »

You have three years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. There are other caveats that are involved so you should speak to an attorney about your case.
