  • What do I need to do, who do I need to talk to, and when can this be fixed!

    Jon’s Answer

    I agree you should file a police report. You should also file a report with the hospital and order the records for all nurses notes while you were there in order to get the names of all nurses on duty at the time. What happened in your wreck? Were you at fault or someone else?

  • Can i back up from the deal and break the contract

    i sign a contract for buying a new car and, i haven't take possession of the car, i haven't give the down payment yet , but they pressure me in signing the papers today plus the sales man tells me its at a 11.9 % and wen i sign it was at 20%

    Jon’s Answer

    I would write a letter to them explaining why you felt pressured and hand deliver it (keep a copy). Speak with the general manager and tell them how you feel and that you don't think you can afford it. Do not take the care. See if they will let you out. Call the finance company as well and let them know in writing too.

  • Can i back up from the deal made

    if i sign a car contract and never took possession of the car

    Jon’s Answer

    It depends on the contract and the dealer. It would also depend on the reason. That's a difficult question to answer without more facts. If you put money down or had a trade in, you will have some issues.

    Jon’s Answer

    No one can anticipate what will happen. He should consult with a criminal defense attorney before going down to the station. There is no crime if no one was hurt; however, if someone was hurt, it can be considered a felony.

  • What to do to check if this is the reason for my family's illness?

    I purchased laminate flooring from Lumber Liquidator. My family has been getting sick often with no real relief. I was recently told that there had been a problem with Lumber Liquidator products. I looked it up online and the exact model I hav...

    Jon’s Answer

    You need to determine whether your family's illness was caused by the specific problem with the product. If so, you will have to determine whether you are/could be part of the class or mass tort litigation or whether you want to be. You will probably want to consult with an attorney to guide you. Proving a product caused your family damage can be complicated and expensive. An experienced attorney can advise you on whether it is economically feasible to pursue it.

    Jon’s Answer

    It depends if you have returned to work or whether or not you are permanently injured from doing your job. If the latter, you will need a vocational assessment done in order to determine your disability rating.

    Jon’s Answer

    Without more information, no one will know if they can help you. We would need to review the wreck report and witness statements. We would need to review your insurance policy. An attorney must have all of the information available in order to assess the potential of a case. What were your injuries?
