From your question, I assume playing hockey is your job. That would have to be true for you to have a workers' comp claim for your injury. If you have a workers' comp claim (in other words, if you were injured while working) then workers' comp would be your only remedy. You would not have a...Read more »
It won't enhance the penalties, assuming that having a distracting light isn't a violation of SC vehicle codes. However, if you are in a wreck and cause the wreck someone will make reference to it if they see it. It's like an aggressive bumper sticker--not illegal, won't change the fine or not, but...Read more »

A DUI arrest, charge and potential conviction could in fact be solely due to intoxication as the result of taking prescription drugs.

You must give your landlord a reasonable amount of time to repair the oven. You should probably give the landlord written notice if the oven is not repaired within a reasonable period of time, you will make the repair yourself and deduct the amount from the monthly rental payment.

We are now having to tow the jeep. It has many issues that we were not informed about before the trade. We have messages where the owner told us the jeep had no issues. The car clearly had issues as they started a mile from their house, where we signed titles over. Is their anything we can do?
Probably not, because neither the Jeep nor the motorcycle are worth enough money to make it worthwhile for you to hire a litigation lawyer and fight the seller. Unless you want to try in a small claims court.
We have been working on my Mexican wife's green card. She got an appointment date of April 30th, but her medical exam showed a spot on her lung, and they required tests for TB, which took 10 weeks, taking us past the original interview date. The tests were negative, but now the earliest date the... Read more »

The organization is saying I can now only use my money on a short term trip with them in the next three years. I was only committed to going with them because they were helping me get overseas to work with them long term & they never told me of any time limit.
IMO, if the organization "gave" you the money upon condition that you make the trip overseas to go to work for them within the next three years, then you must either do that or give the money back--so they can use it to find another employee willing to move overseas to work.

You could try reposting your question in the Landlord-Tenant section, since it hasn't been picked up in four weeks. You are correct in that it involves a contractual/business law matter, but you are speaking of remedies of a company that may have arisen under a lease. What you describe sounds like...Read more »
