Legal Answers
6 Questions Answered

Q. does a co-owner to property have to sign the contract
A: Much more information is required to answer this question. Are you inquiring about real estate or personal property? What sort of contract and legal matters are you referring to? Without this information there really is no way to provide any meaningful resposne. Please post a little more about your issue, but keep in mind that this is a public forum and personal identifying information should not be disclosed. Thank you.
Q. I would like to know what my personal liability is as a management employee.
A: More information is required before this question can be fully answered. Generally speaking, employees of businesses, even managers, are not liable for liabilities of the business entity, although an employee may be held liable for their own wrongful conduct. On the other hand, owners of a business may in certain circumstances be held personally liable for liabilities of the business. For those owners, a lot depends on the way the business is organized, registered, and operated. However, it is very unlikely an employee of a business could be held personally liable for a workplace injury, unless the employee was directly involved in causing or contributing to the accident.

Q. what practice area covers mentally ill persons and their inability to maintain their own care?
A: I am sorry to hear about your sister's situation. It sounds like you or someone else in the family should consult with an attorney who handles guardianships. That attorney may recommend petitioning a court to appoint you or another qualified individual as your sister's guardian. Typically, a guardian assumes control of a protected person's affairs and must report to the court and any other interested persons from time to time. Good luck with a very difficult situation.
