    Medical releases do tend to beg the question of if an injury was caused by something else between the time of the release and the discovery of the new injury. Your attorney's advice to settle was ok, but not great. A legal malpractice case doesn't seem to fit here as the standard of what it takes for an act or omission to be legal malpractice is a high standard and it seems that your attorney's advice was not flippant or negligent. So long as there isn't anything that you left out of your...

    It is likely that you have a claim, but the calculation of whether to pursue a claim, what you stand to gain, and your chances of being successful will likely require consulting an attorney in your State.

    I'm curious if the car was new or used. In a brief glance at the Florida Lemon laws it seems like new cars are covered while used cars may not be. There may be a claim against the shop that worked on your brakes or the manufacturer for you individual defective product (less likely that there is an overall design flaw here). Contact an attorney in your jurisdiction. The yellow pages, this site, or google are decent ways to find an attorney to talk to.

    In some jurisdictions a parent must sign the driver's license before their child can get their first license. Few parents realize that they are signing up to be liable for their child's actions in that car until they reach the age of majority. Specific answers: Should child's car be in her name? Yes this could help. Should she have her own auto policy? Either, but a claim against an insured on your policy will likely make the overall insurance go up, and could make the insurance...

    Your legal issue posed prompts lots of other questions. Were the proceeds from your deceased brother from a settlement? Was the settlement consummated in Mississippi and do you live in Mississippi? It sounds as though your dad may have been appointed guardian of the funds which will carry with it the court's supervision. If it is a guardianship in Mississippi, you will not be able to access the funds until you turn 21. On your 21st birthday, you will be entitled to the funds. In Mississippi, a...

    There may be some liability for the landlord if he knew that the dog resided on the premises and there was some reason for him to know that the dog was dangerous. This may change from jurisdiction to jurisdiction so you should consult a local attorney concerning this.

    If your child is under the age of 18 local statute may require additional determinations by the local authorities or charges to be brought. Utilize your offer of appointed counsel if you qualify and ask them these questions.
