    This looks like an awful situation. If I were you, I would ask for copies of all court orders concerning your case and then for a written explanation or a meeting with the responsible lawyer to learn exactly why the case was dismissed. If you feel like the wrong thing happened after going through those steps, you should consult with a law firm that prosecutes legal malpractice case. Our firm does and if you feel you need our help after learning more, feel free to contact me. Bruce Pfaff,...

    I cannot suggest that you pursue any legal claim. Since you feel fine and are not sick at all, this falls into the "no harm, no foul" category. The restaurant's courtesy to you after you reported the problem is commendable. Good luck to you!

    A successful case could be brought depending on that laws of the state that control the issue. I assume the seller of the motor home is in the same state as your mother's residence. In all likelihood, that state's laws will govern. Leaving the motor home exposed to the elements could easily be shown to be negligent; not removing the mold before delivery equally bad. The difficult issue may be to establish whether the mold from the motor home caused your mother's illness. A medical doctor will...

  4. Could an Automaker be held responsible for contributing to a fatality due to defective airbags?

    I practice law in Illinois so to be sure, you might wish to check with a lawyer currently licensed in California. I do represent a good number of people in cases against automakers. I have learned from my work that airbags are "supplemental restraint systems" designed to minimize traumatic injuries to occupants in frontal or side collisions (if the vehicle has side airbags). I have never heard that airbags had any purpose to help float a car nor do I think that could be possible considering the...

    Strict product liability is defined differently in different states. In Illinois, for example, a product is defective or unreasonably dangerous if it is unsafe when put to a reasonably foreseeable use or if the risks of the particular design outweigh the benefits of that design. We have had successful cases against these products just as a brief series of examples: front seats on Ford Escorts, front seats on Ford Explorers (they are weak and fail during certain rear impacts), a water cooled...

    I agree that it should not be hard for the family to find a lawyer. It may not be an easy, open and shut case, but based on what you wrote, there seems to be a strong basis to investigate a wrongful death claim. Obtaining the medical records and autopsy report, if an autopsy was done, would be very helpful. A lawyer should carefully review to see if there are issues of medical negligence or a product defect. Please let me know if we can help, Bruce Pfaff, Chicago, www.pfaffgill.com, bpfaff@...

  7. Can you sue the manufacturer for a product defect if the product was purchased used.

    The short answer is "yes," a dealer that is negligent and causes injury by selling an unsafe product can be successfully sued. Another possible theory is breach of warranty if the dealer extended a warranty. I cannot answer if that has been done in Florida recently, I am an Illinois lawyer. If you need referral to a competent Florida lawyer, I would be glad to recommend one or more of my friends who practice there. Best wishes, Bruce Pfaff, Chicago

    Dear Ambler, You were put at risk but happily that risk did not cause you harm. I see no basis for you to seek more than a refund or replacement of your ice cream. Best wishes, Bruce Pfaff

    I am very sorry to learn of your father's situation. I am licensed to practice in Illinois and I am unsure where your father's exposure occurred so please take my suggestions with that grain of salt. Worker's protection and compensation laws do vary from state to state. A worker injured due to a jobsite exposure is entitled to worker's compensation benefits if a claim is timely filed. The worker may also obtain compensation against companies other than his employer if he can establish the...
