When a Panama City resident is injured because of something unexpected happening with a product they are using -- a food enjoyed for dinner or medicine that was supposed to help -- he or she may have what's known as a product liability claim. Personal injury victims are entitled to seek compensation from anyone proven to be responsible for the harm caused. This doesn't necessarily have to be because of negligence, but the manufacturer, distributor or retailer can be held accountable nonetheless.
In legal terms, the word guardian is used to define someone who is legally appointed or is entitled to care for and manage the person and property of another. Many people are familiar with the term when talking about appointing a guardian for one's children in a will for example. There are times when a guardian is needed long-term because an adult is not mentally capable of making decisions or responsibly caring for his or her own needs.
