    A maintenance man cannot lawfully kick your door in and steal from you. Are you able to prove this through any witness? If so, contact the police immediately.

  • I have a car with several recalls and my wife had an accident. no one else got injured but my wife what can i do about it

    the recalls is in a ford explorer 1996

    Jerry’s Answer

    If you can prove that the defect caused the accident you might have a case. You will need to retain a product liability attorney in your state to look into this. You will need to keep the vehicle and refrain from making any changes, repairs, etc. these cases are very expensive to pursue and unless your wife's injuries are significant, the cost to pursue such a case may exceed its value.

    When I moved from my other apartment I did not have any bed bugs. The landlord is trying to say I brought them from my other apartment .

    Jerry’s Answer

    In Pennsylvania, you would file a standard negligence claim against the landlord and you would assert that the property leased to you was infested prior to your moving in.
