    I am very sorry for your loss. I urge you to retain a North Carolina attorney to assist you with this issue, but I can set you in the right direction. Since your son died without a will, your rights will likely be determined by two laws. First, NC intestate statute and second, the NC wrongful death statute (if the wrongful death occurred in NC), Generally, whether or not the parents of adult children have claims under a wrongful death statute is determined by the level of support the...

  2. I paid my rent but the property manager didn't give it to the owner. Do I have to double pay my rent

    Once you pay the property manager, in the eyes of the law , you have paid the owner since the agent is the owner. You need to give the owner evidence that you paid the manager. After that, the owners recourse is against the property manager. Good luck.

  4. I am being summoned to appear in court regarding my son's (was 21/now 25) debt during an auto accident. Can I be sued?

    Your question is "can I be sued?" Yet, in your description you describe being "summoned to appear in court". It sounds as though you are already being sued. You should contact a litigation attorney in your jurisdiction and let him or her review the summons, the agreement, and any other documents or correspondence you have with the health care provider. If you have already received a summons, the time for you to respond is likely running. Your attorney can help you with that too....

    There are many services that allow you to check to see if the driver has property in Texas. If he does, you can retain a Texas attorney to record the Judgment in Texas and put a lien on his property. In fact, search Avvo for a Texas attorney who will represent you on a contingency fee to collect the Judgment. If you find the right attorney, they will do the search for you. Good luck.

    The answer to your question will depend own the terms of the Settlement Agreement, whether the parties have honored that agreement, and whether the allegations of the new case were released in the settlement agreement. You should retain a good commercial litigation attorney in your jurisdiction to review this issue for you. Good luck.

  8. Which state to bring litigation for Trustee breach?

    I agree with my colleague. If you have the Trust document you should also see if there are any notice and alternative dispute resolution provisions contained in the document. Those provisions are often found near the choice of law clause and will likely give you guidance on where (and how to proceed).

  10. CIvil demand from Walmart do I ignore it?

    Answered over 1 year ago.

    You should take the demand to a lawyer in your city. It may not seem like a big issue to you, but based on the facts you describe, Walmart considers it important. The worst thing you can do is ignore it. Moreover, if a claim has been filed against you your deadline to respond is actually running. Bring the document to a lawyer and don't discuss the matter anymore on a public forum. Good luck.
