It would be difficult for an attorney to guide you on drafting a release with the format here. It sounds like you want to handle the release yourself. There are boilerplate releases online. No one here can tell you, "Consult an attorney," or, "Save money and do it yourself."... Read more »
Car accident occurred almost three years ago am now getting sued about property damage done to public property. The letter contains bill invoice that explains they have already tried sending bill to collections in registered owner name. My question is ,am I as the driver eligible to be sued.

I'm sorry for the alarming letter you received. In general, a driver can be sued if they are liable in the accident. Public entities such as departments of transportation, power companies, etc. do go after drivers for damage to their structures or equipment. As a starting point, you could... Read more »

It's difficult to say what the cause for the change in position on the part of the insurance carrier was without seeing the file and all communications. But what you describe is not uncommon.

You could ask your firm directly. It's a fairly straightforward inquiry. If you filed the case, then you already have an index number. If you had the law firm file (which is generally more common), you should be able to determine that an action is pending on your behalf through an index... Read more »

If you are talking about about a situation where you were injured from using a product that was defective or unreasonably dangerous in some way, you could reach out to product liability attorneys to discuss in greater detail. Good luck

This would be for a nine year old vehicle and you or they will need expert testimony.

Gas got into her eyes, that caused them to be red and she had to throw out her cloths
answered on Oct 28, 2020
So sorry to hear what happened to your wife. Given that lawsuits are generally reserved when there has been a serious, permanent injury, litigation might not be the way to go. Moreover, the gas station would arguably not have any liability (legal responsibility) unless it either knew, or should... Read more »

You may want to repost your question in the Trademark and Copyright sections. There's no guarantee that all questions are picked up, but it would have better chances of being seen there. Products Liability is more about injuries from defective products. Good luck
I am currently building an online adult Toy store, I haven’t done anything yet except source products. I live in New York. My question is legally do I have to have an 18+ only disclosure on my website?
answered on May 13, 2020
Yes. Although New York has protected First Amendment rights in the context of adult stores. I believe is a good business practice to add a statement that your store will make efforts to restrict sales to minors.
Additionally, since you sell online through credit cards, access to shopping... Read more »
