If a contractor has done shoddy work and has not yet finished the job or fixed the issues - Can I bring them to small claims court? How long do I have to do so? Can I seek a refund on monies already paid? They have stopped returning my calls. They are also way past when they promised the work would... Read more »
Yes. You can file a claim in Tennessee's version of small claims court- called General Sessions Court. You would feel out a pleading called a Warrant. You can also report the contractor to the state licensing board.
It depends on when the account was officially closed. Theoretically there is a SOL but that may not even start for years after you think it started. Contact an attorney that can delve into this in more detail.
If you rent the room on a month to month basis, they have to give you 30 days notice of non-renewal. If the oral agreement is week to week, they would only need to give you a week's notice of non-renewal. If you've breached the agreement in some way, the notice period can be 3 days.
I started complaining via email in April. They wanted pictures and even suggested I send the dead plants back at my expense. They said they don't issue refunds, even though they say all plants are guaranteed. They will only issue a credit. I have been waiting for a credit for over 3 weeks.
A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter nationwide, usual options could include inhouse customer service, forums identified in the agreement for disputes (e.g., arbitration under AAA rules), or small claims/civil court. A Colorado...Read more »
The car has gone into this shop with a full coverage warranty. They would keep the vehicle in their shop for multiple weeks to repair simple things, and return the car with the same problems. This continued over the course of 2-3 years, until the engine failed and was considered totalled. The... Read more »
Unlikely at this point. You'd need an expert to testify that the engine fialed due to what they did and for no other reason. Part of the problem is also you kept taking it back--the law would say some of that's on you, because you didn't want to have a competent mechanic look at it....Read more »
A Texas attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks.

I was not burned but suffered smoke inhalation. I had the truck for one hour. An auction employee drove the truck to the front of the lot for me to take delivery. I was told it was driveable. The Fire Dept had to come put out the fire.
Sorry to hear that. Virtually every auction I've ever seen has a disclaimer both on the bidding number issuance paper and on the bill of sale that says that you buy it, you take any and all risks, that the auctioneer doesn't test or examine the vehicles and makes absolutely no guarantee...Read more »
While interviewing for a chain restaurant GM position mid Dec of 2019 I was asked what annual salary I would accept to leave where I was currently employed and work there. I asked for 65,000 and the district Mgr at that time who was interviewing me agreed, but he said they would need to start me at... Read more »
Yes. You can take action. You should hurry though because you are running up against the statute of limitations. You should be able to use the documentation and text messages that you already have in your possession. You may take the restaurant to small claims court for the difference in the amount...Read more »
Pain and suffering, like all elements of a claim, is shown via evidence, which comes in the form of testimony and documentation. Further, there is no calculable way to quantify pain and suffering--each case is different.
I was sued by my ex over a dog that we adopted while together but has lived with me 90% of the time since we separated. For the eight years since we separated, I would let him take the dog from time to time but never more than a week and usually just a few days. He’s lived in the same place since... Read more »
I applied for my 3-yr old daughter's social security number for her health insurance. Because of Covid, SSA required us to submit the original copies of her and my passports at their office. Once my daughter was approved of the SSN, the SSA office sent us back the passports through uninsured... Read more »
You should make a report to the post office. Take your copy of that report and make a claim to Social Security. They may want to you reapply for your daughter's passport so they have the copy of the bills. They say no, talk to your congressperson & Senators--each has a staff member to...Read more »

A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. This could be a difficult claim, where certain things could have been done better on both sides. In terms of apportioning liability, that could be a jurisdiction-specific issue based on the comparative negligence...Read more »
My dog was stolen by a guy who I discovered had kept him for awhile before giving him to someone else to keep. I have evidence that the guy who stole my dog once had him in his possession but I have no information about who has my dog now. I went to the police but they were not interested in... Read more »
Congratulations on your success in Magistrate Court. Winning is one thing. Collecting is another. Unfortunately, you have found this to be the situation in your case. Worse, there is no way at all any of us can provide any assistance to you. We always have to adapt our actions to the needs of...Read more »
My neighbors fence is partially blocking access to our driveway. We've closed it since it is accessible from our own property, but she continues to open it. What are our options, and what maryland provisions cover this?
I suppose it's a form of trespass. Have you tried talking to your neighbor? If that fails, provide her with written notice not to open her gate across your driveway, which blocks your access in and out of your property. If she does it again, I suppose you can file trespass charges (I doubt...Read more »
Winter so no big deal. Plus I left 2 push mowers. I left the freezer on the porch. However I asked if it’d be in her way that I’d take it to the lean tube shed but she said no it’s ok. So I left it there I moved away couldn’t come back to get it for a few months she texted asked when I’m... Read more »
You had the duty to get the freezer. Covid would not have prevented you from getting the freezer. I don't see a claim. She isn't required to keep the electric running for you forever. But get a few more answers.
