Theodore Allan Greene answered on Mar 31, 2020

You might be able to sue the owner of the property depending on why you fell. If you haven't already you should go take pictures of what made you fall before they can fix it. You asked if you could sue California which I'm assuming you meant can I sue in California. Slip and falls in parking lots... Read more »

Q: Hi, this is a personal injury question. I backed into the rear passenger door of another car at about 2 mi per hour.

The other party said she was ok, but after filing a personal property claim with my insurance company 8 days ago, she has not returned any calls. I'm concerned she may be attorney shopping. My Bodily Injury limit is only 15k. What are the chances of this exceeding my policy limits ?

Theodore Allan Greene answered on Mar 22, 2020

Your insurance company should handle it for you. If she did get an attorney they most likely would tell her not to talk to anyone. In the future you need enough coverage so that you don't worry when you get in an accident. Let your own insurance handle it and periodically check in with them if you... Read more »

You most likely have a case against the person who drugged you. Did you report it to the police and was the person arrested and charged? Does the person have any assets.

Theodore Allan Greene answered on Feb 11, 2020

Your parents normally would not be responsible for your actions but as the previous answer states - we would need more info to be sure. If you are going to drive for Uber then make sure you have really good insurance and that takes a lot of the risk out of the picture. Then drive very carefully.

Q: I was involved in an accident & don’t have a license or insurance and the person at fault was licensed but not insured.

Would I be automatically at fault in this circumstance? My car is a 2018 Honda Civic and the other person’s car is a 1999 Nissan Altima. Both are total losses. We were both taken to the hospital for our injuries.

You should sit down with an attorney, or call one, to get more facts. But just because you didn't have a license or insurance doesn't mean you are at fault. The driver at fault in an accident is the person who caused the accident regardless of license or insurance. Now you can get in trouble for... Read more »

Someone would have to get many more facts from you to determine if you could force them to return the dogs. Instead you should contact the new owner (if you know who they are) and tell them your story and offer them the money you otherwise would have put into a legal remedy. If you don't know who...

It's 4 years for a contract. You must answer the complaint unless you can negotiate. Sometimes I have been able to get a payment plan but your best bet would be to borrow the money and pay them. Just answering the complaint is close to $400. If you have a lot of other debt you might consider a... Read more »
