    if you own the bike you might be vulnerable to a negligent entrustment case under certain circumstances. This is a fact specific matter, which leads to a law specific inquiry. Get to an experienced personal injury lawyer if you have any questions, and don't wait. If you are concerned that you might be sued because of an accident involving the bike, call you homeowner's insurer.

Wage and hour issues after often complex and depend upon a variety of facts. And the law is varied and also complex. Don't go it alone.
