Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. Who do I need to speak to about a terrible accident involving myself and a natural resource officer?
A: You will definitely need to speak with an attorney. However, in the interim, you can obtain a copy of the police report which should be available by now and this will provide insight as to the assignment of fault. Based on your assertions, it appears you may have a case for personal injury, however, to be certain, you should consult with a personal injury attorney. They work on a contingent fee basis and usually offer free consultations for personal injury cases.
Q. I was charged in a fight, but got injured myself - can I sue the other person?
A: Whether you can sue depends on the facts of your case. Also, most lawyers will only take the case once they are assured that they will get paid if they win you a settlement or judgment. Therefore, your best advice is to consult with a seasoned personal injury attorney.
Q. Do personal injury settlements include medical bills my insurance didn't cover?
A: Personal injury settlements take into consideration all expenses that were incurred as a result of the accident including but not limited to your medical bills, lost wages, future medical needs, future lost earnings (where applicable), etc. Due to the complex nature of personal injury matters, you should consult with a personal injury (PI) attorney. PI attorneys work on a contingent fee basis and usually do not charge a fee for initial consultation.
Q. Dissolving the partnership
A: Since you do not have any operating agreement you are limited to applicable provisions of Maryland statute hence you may not be able to 'kick him out'. However, you may have claims for breach of fiduciary duty and misuse or misappropriation of funds. If you are able to prevail on any claims against him, it may suffice to make you and your other partner whole without having to 'kick him out'. In any event, complex legal matters such as this require you to consult with a competent attorney in business law for adequate and wholistic legal advice.
