    You certainly may be able to make a claim agaisnt the hotel for the injuries and damages you sustained from the bed bug bites. It may be possible to settle your claims without having a lawsuit filed, but you are probably going to need a personal injury attorney to assist you. You will first need to prove that the bed bug bites came from the hotel. If they came from the hotel, you are probably not the only person to have experienced the problem. You and your attorney will have to prove that the...

    These types of injuries can be serious, therefore, you should obtain a medical evaluation and potential care. You may need to also consult with specialists, such as a dermatologist, or an allergist. I would suggest that you immediately consult with a personal injury attorney who has handled these types of claims, in order to get the best advice. Please be aware that in Wisconsin, there is normally a three year statute of limitations for an adult pursuing a claim for damages as a result of...

  3. An internal affairs detective wants to talk to me. What should I do? I am a private citizen.

    I do not think that you have a responsibility or requirement to speak with the Detective from Internal Affairs, but the question is whether you should have any legal concerns with what he wants to speak with you about. Usually IA is involved in investigating the actions of other officers so perhaps you have information that they think would be helpful in some type of criminal conduct or rules/policies violation of whomever they might be investigating. You could certainly ask the Detective what...

    You should obtain a copy of the release form which you signed, in order to review the language. Most release forms indicate that you are releasing both past and future claims, both known and unknown. If that is the case, you would have accepted the offered money as a full and final settlement of all claims which you might have as a result of your injuries on this accident.

    It sounds as though your nephew should hire an attorney to represent him for the tickets he received. I am unclear about what the court date is for. Is it for the traffic law tickets, is it for the lack of insurance? Was it your car that he was borrowing? I would have him consult with an attorney on these issues so that you will also know what liability you might also face for this accident.

    If you retained an attorney to represent you in an accident, you are permitted to change attorneys. Your new attorney will often be able to work out a feebdivision with the original attorney so that you will often not owe any additional fees. If your original attorney withdrew from his representation of you, you can retain a new attorney, often without owing any fees to your original attorney. Consult with an experienced personal attorney to discuss your rights and the alternatives.

    Your not wearing your seatbelt will not prevent your recovering from the at fault driver's insurance company. The insurance company will have the burden of proving that your not wearing your seatbelt would have reduced your injuries, and if they can do so, by use of an expert, that can reduce your damages up to the maximum of 15%. It is often difficult for the insuance company to prove that even if you had been wearing your seatbelt that you might not have still suffered the concussion and...

    Hiring an attorney in either State is important. If you want to develop a relationship with a local attorney who can meet with you on a regular basis, I would suggest Milwaukee-area experienced personal injury attorney. That attorney will determine the law and any necessary notice requirements and the applicable statute of limitations time period available to pursue the claim. Since most cases are resolved without the need for a lawsuit being filed, a Milwaukee-area experienced personal injury...

    I think it is appropriate that you contact Human Services about this in order to have this communication documented. Obviously, they will need to investigate and see if they can determine where it came from. Assuming the employer addresses the issue and does an investigation, I am not sure if you have a claim to pursue as to a suit against anyone. If the employer condones the actions and does not do anything about it, that is one thing, however, asuming that they investigate it and take action...

    If your son was arrested, you should consult with a criminal defense attorney to determine what he was arrested for and whether charges are being pursued. The criminal defense attorney will have a right to obtain the "discovery," which is any of the videos, police reports, witnesses statements, and other investigative materials from the police investigatoin. If there is no criminal case pending, then you might be able to make an open records request to obtain the police video. You should then...
