Q. I have been using J&J product for 2 years now and it had definitely caused me a lot of hair loss, can I sue them?
A: You will need qualified medical expert testimony that establishes the product caused your injury in order to have a good case. Product liability cases are very difficult to handle without a lawyer. I recommend you have a personal consultation with a personal injury lawyer to evaluate your case.
Q. Can I bring suit against a former business partner for outstanding & defaulted credit card debt tied to me?
A: What did your partnership agreement say about who was to be responsible for what? Was the debt incurred for business purposes or personal purposes? In very general terms, you would resolve the issue with the bank that issued the credit card. Then, yes you could sue the former partner for paying something that was more than your share or more than you agreed to. However, if this former business partner is located in North Carolina, we have no wage garnishment for debt. Most people have no assets that can be taken to satisfy a judgment. You could get a judgment that is uncollectible. Look for a commercial collections attorney for further more specific advice.
Q. Realtor wants to buy deceased mother’s house before foreclosure and split profits. Is this a scam?
A: You are the next of kin with regard to real estate. If you die without a will in NC and you are married and have a child: you spouse inherits 1/2 of your intestate real estate and a portion of your intestate personal property (if you die with personal property worth $60,000 or less, your spouse inherits all of it; if you have more than $60,000 worth of personal property, your spouse inherits $60,000 plus 1/2 of the balance) child or descendants inherit 1/2 of your intestate real estate and any intestate personal property remaining after the spouse's share. I doubt its a scam. It depends on when the foreclosure sale is set (usually at least 30 days after the hearing).
