Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: A plane crashed into my house while I was sitting in my living room! I'm still in a state of shock. Is there anything I should be doing or watching out for?

For one thing, make sure your lawyer doesn't miss the one-year statute of limitations for cases about planes crashing into houses. (Legal Profession Blog, Plane Hits House, Attorney Misses Statute Of Limitations)

Paperclip 2) Question: I just found out my dentist was charged with inserting paper clips in patients' mouths during root canals instead of stainless steel surgical posts. Is this going to be a problem?

Answer: It definitely will be a problem for your dentist if he's been charging Medicare for stainless steel surgical posts, which costs a bit more than paper clips. We're not really sure on whether it will be a problem for you. Perhaps you could pose your question to Dental Blog Watch? (The Herald News, Former Fall River Dentist Accused of Using Paper Clips in Root Canals) (via Bad Lawyer)

3) Question: I'm really dreading breaking up with my girlfriend, but I know I have to do it. Any ideas on how to do this as painlessly (for me) as possible?

Answer: Have you considered having your lawyer deliver the break-up news for you? That seems to be a new practice area. (Lowering the Bar, Greg Brady's Girlfriend Claims He Had His Lawyer Break Up With Her)
