    He is probably at fault. Even if the owner of the parking lot did not properly salt or sand it, your son's actions in crashing into the parked car will be considered a proximate or legal cause of the accident. If your son's car was insured, simply call the insurance carrier and they will handle it. If a lawyer is needed to represent your son, the insurance company pays for one to defend him. Good luck.

    First, you should know that it is illegal for a person under 21 to operate a motor vehicle in Connecticut with a Blood Alcohol Content of two one hundredths of one percent. For a person 21 or older, the limit is eight one hundredths of one percent. Based on the stated reasons for your stop, the officer appeared to have probable cause for pulling you over. It is illigal for a police officer to stop a driver who appears to be between 16-21 to check for DUI solely on the basis of age. You...

    First of all, anything you say online can be seen by anyone -even after the words are taken off the internet, so it is never a good idea to put anything online that you wouldn't say over a loud speaker to an audience of priests, police, immigration officials, etc. You should get the idea. Your husband's immigration status is something you should discuss with an immigration lawyer and with his criminal defense attorney. Often criminal defense attorneys wil consult with immigration lawyers...

    In connecticut a written agreement may be enforced within six years. As your facts are stated, the IOU is probably enforceable. Failure to bill you is no defense. The interest and fees being asserted are another story. Those are recoverable only if you agreed to pay them.

    Generally no in the context of a settlement as the money should flow quickly through the lawyers accout. We are obligated to deposit client funds in ourIOLTA (interest on lawyers trust account)under ordinary circumstances. Review your fee agreement as it probably sets forth how your funds will be held pending distribution.

    The answer probably depends on the law of your jurisdiction. However, a lawyer who performs legal work on a file that is on a contingency fee, may be entitled to the reasonalbe value of his work under the doctrine of Quantum meruit. His fee would be based on the value of his efforts and not neccesarily the number of hours he speant, although that is one factor that would be looked at. If this lawyer dropping you put your case in jeapordy or cost you money, or you had to hire another lawyer...

    Please look up the statute of limitations for your state at this web address. http://www.injuryboard.com/topic/tort-components-statutes.aspx. I am assuming you entered into a contingency fee agreement whereby the lawyer is not paid unless and until he makes a financial frecovery for you. You may discharge your lawyer at any time. Depending on your state, you probably would not have to pay him anything until your case settles and you probably would not have to pay any more than you agreed to...

    Generally, I would say no. Although your question does not specify exactly how the stepfather was injured, it appears that he was assaulted by the adult stepchild. your question also does not specify who owns the home and who resides in the home. I am also assuming that both the injured stepfather and the adult stepchild were residents of the household. There are two potential problems to successfully asserting a claim against the homeowners policy. First, intentional torts, such as...
