Legal Answers
Q. What law gives law enforcement the right to enter onto ones property/land w/out a warrant, and without probable cause?
A: It really depends on the circumstances. Typically, law enforcement can enter one's property without a warrant if, like you said, there were exigent circumstances or in pursuit of someone who the officer was notified was engaged in wrongdoing.
Q. If you have gotten a felony charge and the arresting officer didn’t read you your Miranda rights can the case be demised
A: It really depends on the situation. The failure to tell a person their Miranda rights does not necessarily mean that the case will be dismissed; however, it could mean that any confession or statements made by the person may not be able to come in. Once again, though, it depends on the situation.
Q. My dominant hand and about a quarter of my forearm was cut off at work. How much of a settlement should I expect ?
A: This definitely sounds like something that should be covered under workers' compensation. As the other answered indicated, you definitely need to reach out to an experienced workers' comp attorney to talk further, so that your rights are protected. Feel free to reach out to anyone on here by clicking the contact information next to their name. Most law firms, including my own, offer free consultations to see how we can help out. In my office, we have a dedicated partner who handles nothing but workers' compensation cases. Regardless, the important thing is that you do not go into this alone.
