Legal Answers
Q. My father lost his life in a motorcycle accident. He was not at fault. How can I find out if any person sued?
A: You need to discuss the details of the case with an attorney that handles cases in this area. My associate has over 40 years of experience in this area, and is one of the top auto and motorcyle plaintiff's attorneys in Michigan, and I am sure would be glad to discuss this case with you and give you the answers you want. He certainly can help you. Let me know if you wish to be connected to him, or alternatively you can find someone else who has experience in this area.
Q. Should I notify District Court of Circuit Court's dismissal without prejudice & my intent to re-file a late Appeal?
A: When you refile in the lower court, just indicate somewhere in your filing that the higher court dismissed without prejudice to refile in the lower court, and include a copy of the higher court's order at that time.
Q. someone is currently incarcerated and is sentenced but would like to appeal is it possible for them to get more time?
A: Yes it is possible for them to get more time. That would most likely occur if they had a plea agreement to receive a certain sentence, and now they appeal and are able to go back and have a trial. There are so many different scenarios possible. Of course you will want to have an attorney, and the attorney can advise you based upon the specific circumstances of your case. Atty. Dana B. Carron
