Legal Answers
14 Questions Answered

Q. Provide a scenario of legal negligence and explain which elements of negligence are factors in the scenario.
A: The most common scenario of negligence (lack of due care judged by professional standards) is failing to diligently pursue legal matters, including failure to file timely lawsuits. Many lawyers do not use modern software for tracking cases, etc. The damage which occurs is the value of the matter (judged as if the case were timely handled), plus possible extra damages like emotional distress or attorney’s fees as a consequence of the negligence.
Q. Can my lawyer sell my personal information?
A: To sue, you need to have suffered an injury. NYS or Local Bar Assn can investigate possible breach of client confidentiality.
Q. Does a jail have to get a prescription to put an inmate on a medication?
A: You should not be forced to take medications, especially when they are not prescribed by a physician. This violates the 8th Amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.
