Q. if my lawyer submits a claim and does not get a rejection from the company we are suing, do i have a good case
A: People are desperate to know if they "have a good case." Sometimes, they ask their lawyer a similar question over and over and then come to boards like this trying to find a deeper answer. But they are not going to find one. Charles Synderman is right. Ultimately, you have to sit down with your lawyer and get information you need. And even then you might not be satisfied because it might be unknowable. The best advice here is not legal: hang in the there!
Q. my grandon and his buddies want to make a dirt track for motorcycles on my ground. Am I liable?
A: I disagree with the first sentence of Mark's answer. There are facts that we know that could leave you liable. Because we have insufficient facts because we don't know what WILL happen, you have exposure. Otherwise, I agree with Mark. Certainly, contacting a lawyer is the best answer but a very expensive proposition and maybe not realistic. If you have insurance that would cover that loss, then you know you have that. Otherwise, you just want to say no to the dirt track. Motorcycles are crazy dangerous.
Q. If my purse was snatched outside Family Dollar Store and I was injured, can the company be liable for my hospital bill?
A: The real answer here is probably not. Sure, there could be facts that could make Family Dollar negligent. They could have, for example, known or had reason to know of the security risks associated with this particular type of theft or could have been negligent in the way they spooked the thief. But the odds of these facts lining up for you are very slim and it will be a challenge to get a lawyer interested particularly because your post does not suggest serious injuries. I'm using general tort law to answer this question, not Louisiana law.
Q. How long does a case take to be litigated if a lawsuit is filed in personal injury case in utah
A: According to Jury Verdict Research, the average in the United States is between 20 and 21 months.
Q. I had a slip and fall in the mall, why isn't the insurance company not releasing the videos to my attorney unless he sues?
A: Cedulie is right. Insurance companies just don't produce evidence, even when it helps them. If the video helps you, then you would have ammunition to attract a personal injury lawyer to your case. Many injured people just give up and go away. The insurance companies bank on this to keep their claims down.
Q. Yaz injuries, can i use my lawyer for lawsuit
A: Of course you can hire any lawyer in your jurisdiction to handle your Yaz claim.
Q. Can an additional person be added to a complaint after the statute of limitation has run?
A: There are exceptions - fraud is the big one. But I think plaintiff is going to have a hard time maintaining a case against your wife.
Q. In a title 13 trust case how does the minor recover the money when she turns 18?
A: I'm not sure I entirely understand your question. The money becomes available to the minor when they turn 18 under the statute. They go to the bank and assume control of the money.
Q. If my father has a perscription for darvocet,and father gives son some for pain and isuffer after,can i b compensate
A: This cases are a challenge in the first place for a lot of reason. Certainly, the fact that you were not prescribed the medication is going to create an additional significant hurdle to your chances of recovery.
