I have a bench warrant. What should I do?
A bench warrant is a warrant issued for a Defendant’s arrest because he or she failed to appear for a mandatory Court hearing.
If you have a bench warrant, there are two ways that you can try to dispose of it. One option is to simply turn yourself into the authorities, which is usually done by presenting yourself at the county jail and having a correctional officer serve the warrant on you. Once the warrant is served, you will be taken into custody to await a hearing before a Court Commissioner. The Commissioner will decide whether to release you on your own personal recognizance or whether to require you to pay security on a bond to be released.
SUSPENDED DRIVER'S LICENSE

Various forms of conduct can result in driver’s license suspension and these vary from state to state.

Products Liability refers to when a defective or dangerous product causes an injury, or even death. Products liability law does not have the same rules as ordinary personal injury law.
The manufacturer or seller can be held liable for placing a defective product into the hands of a consumer. When a product has an unexpected defect or danger, and that defect or danger causes you harm, you may have a viable claim for products liability.
