If you wrote to him on facebook and he put it up, not much you can do. Ask the provider to take it down.

Without knowing what it is, hard to say--but I can tell you suing him will cost you lots of money and time and not get you anywhere.

Not unless he was a terrible driver and you sent him off with a 5th of gin cackling "let's see who he nails.....this time!"

Hope he is well. He should get a free consult with a member of CAOC before he talks to any company. They give free consults. Heck, I'll give him the basic "who to talk to, how to frame it" information.

2 Answers | Asked in Wrongful Death for Arizona on
Answered on May 23, 2017

I agree. You need to contact a member of Az Trial Lawyers Assn in the county where it happened. They give free consults. Do it now. An estate has to be opened for purposes of litigation. Notify your sibs so no one thinks you are in a weird race to be executor. Also note if your sister's dad opens an estate first, under normal rules all survivors have a right to be co-executors.
