Legal Answers
37 Questions Answered
Q. My son is in jail and he's been treated terribly while there what can I do. I have all of the documents that's needed
A: You should reach out to an attorney and discuss the specific actions that you believe the Jail has done wrong. This question is really to general to provide any substantive response.
Q. I have a dog I posted signs on my front porch Beware of dog a lady ignores the signs walks up on porch my dog bite her
A: In Alabama there are typically three instances where an owner can be responsible for a dog biting someone. 1) if the dog has known dangerous or vicious propensities. 2) If the dog is a breed that is listed on a dangerous breed list. For the State of Alabama that is only Pit Bulls. Counties or Cities may have their own lists. 3) if the dog bites someone that is actually on your property. There are some defenses to a dog bite claim. If the person provokes the dog that can be a complete defense to liability. Another potential defense would be assumption of the risk. With beware of dogs in plain view before she reached the porch this might be sufficient to defend the claim. It is likely that this would be a jury question. For more case specific advice you should seek out legal counsel to advise you of the specific risks you face. You should also review your homeowner's insurance policy to determine if your dog breed is excluded from coverage under the policy. Many homeowner's policies exclude potentially dangerous breeds like pit bulls.
Q. Does Alabama have rights for an aunt if the mother dies?
A: If the Court Order assigning custody lays out conditions that must be met then you can enforce them. However, if the Court granted custody without assigning those conditions then it is likely nothing could be done. Alabama has only recently recognized grandparents rights and the law is still a bit vague there.
