    I would first make a complaint to the Consumer Protection Division of the Attoeney General's Office. Here is the url: http://www.maine.gov/ag/consumer/complaints/index.shtml If you cannot get satisfaction there, I think it unlikely that you will find a lawyer who will take on a $1,000 case, but you nonetheless should try to find someone who specializes in these matters and at least have a conversation. I do not know of anyone personally. Your recourse might be small claims court. The...

    If you have property damage coverage and want the damage repaired as soon as possible, report it to your carrier and let them fight it out with the garage. If your insurer recovers, it will also recover your deductible. Given the time from installation and the problem, if you bring the claim yourself, you likely will need an expert to testify concerning the likely cause of the tire falling off. When my wife puts on or removes her snow tires, the garage tells her to come back in 24 hours...

    You are entitled to the fair market value of your car - whatever it is worth on the open market given its condition (including its low mileage) prior to the accident. Unfortunately, the fact that it may have a greater value to you is of no consequence. The same is true of the fact that it may be difficult for you to find a reliable replacement: it is of no consequence.

    From the information provided, it certainly appears that you are judgment proof. Your Social Security income is exempt from attachment. in other words, it is safe from creditors. Unless there is something unsual about the car accident, nothing can be done to your family members. Exceptions include, you were under age 18 and driving someone else's vehicle or you were drunk and someone let you drive their truck. If the truck you were driving was owned by another person, their insurance would...

    I am sorry to say that the time limit for making a legal claim has long passed. Claims for medical malpractice must be brought withing 3 years of the incident. At most, you had 6 years to pursue a claim against the drug manufacturer.

    The statute of limitations for wrongful death cases, except when the death occurs as the result of medical malpractice, is 2 years. Thus, as the other attorneys who answered your question thought might be the case, the time for filing a claim in court has expired.

    Please do yourself a favor and hire an attorney. You are charged with theft. Theft is a crime of dishonesty. A conviction for a crime of dishonesty can come back to haunt you for a very long time. Many shoplifting charges are disposed of without a conviction. That result, however, is unlikely without the aid of a lawyer.

    You absolutely should consult with an attorney. You have so many things going on that you are likely to get at least some of the charges dismissed if you hire an attorney. Any drug conviction is problematic, especially if you are a student as you will lose your student aid. Your NH license is at risk because you are looking at a potential Maine suspension upon violation of the insurance requirement and NH, to my knowledge, will reciprocate.

    Any employee injured on the job is entitled to workers' compensation benefits - payment of medical expenses and, assuming more than 1 week of missed work, payment of 80% of your after tax wages. If you have not received these benefits, call the Advocates Office at 1-888-828-5460. They are state employees who represent injured employees at no charge. I cannot ascertain from your question whether the injury occurred as a result of someone else's fault. You are prohibited from pursuing a...

    Was this a volunteer concession stand or were you employed at the concession stand? If the later, you are entitled to worker's compensation benefits. Hopefully you are receiving those benefits now. If you were employed at the time of the injury and are not receiving worker's compensation benefits, you need to speak immediately with either an attorney who does worker's compensation cases or an employee advocate. There are strict timetables for notice and the filing of claims. If it is a...
