Moore Law attorney co-host Don Moore was joined by his son, Cincinnati personal injury lawyer Dan Moore, as they welcomed attorney John B. Caldwell from the West Union, Ohio-based firm of Young & Caldwell, LLC and viewers took advantage of the opportunity to “Ask Us Anything.” During one segment on the show, the lawyers talked about lesser-known liability issues concerning some items that might be sold at garage sales.
“The [US] Consumer [Product] Safety Commission has a law that says specifically you’re responsible if you sell something that’s been recalled and it causes harm,” Don said. “Which means if you’ve got a playpen or a crib, or you’ve got a toy that’s been recalled and you sell it a garage sale … and a person actually got hurt by it, you could be liable.”
Questions from Moore Law viewers included Ann in Cincinnati wondering if her employer is allowed to make workers clock out for cigarette breaks, Cheryl in Fayetteville asking how pain and suffering is calculated, Betty in Alexandria inquiring about the tenant’s responsibility when it comes to reporting bed bugs, Eric in Wayne Township calling about a neighbor who fires guns over his property, Elizabeth in West Chester wondering what her options were after a dryer fire in her basement was ruled arson despite her passing four polygraph tests and Nicole in Newport speaking about a custody battle her sister was involved in.
The entire “Ask Us Anything” episode is viewable in the video above. Host and TV journalist Deb Haas will be back next week to join Don in welcoming Cincinnati personal injury attorney Catharin R. Taylor of Clements, Mahin & Cohen, L.P.A., Co. Viewers will be able to ask questions about being “Hurt on the Job” when that show airs live on Monday, July 16, 2012, at 9:30 a.m. on WXIX-TV, FOX19.
