    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.

    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.

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?

    You will still be expected to pay the total amount out to the lien holder but the amount is negotiable and if you have comprehensive auto insurance payment of this type of lien may be possible.

    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.

    The above poster is correct, we need more information. Unfortunately in Mississippi in certain counties there is a criminal case backlog and these things can take time. You may be able to help your friend arrange a criminal attorney.
