If you just moved you would be given time to tell the insurance, especially if she wasn't a regular user. Contact a member of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Assn who handles "bad faith" claims. Contact the state insurance commissioner.But at the same time, don't let the court case go. You have a certain number of days to respond. You may need to file an answer joining as defendants your sister and the insurance company (unless the sister was already a defendant in the papers you got).

1 Answer | Asked in DUI / DWI and Car Accidents for Hawaii on
Answered on Jun 24, 2017

If you were injured contact a member of the Hawaii Trial Lawyers Association--they give free consults. Attorney Richard Kawana in Honolulu (on Maui ask for John O'Neill ) may be able to help you if you were injured--you can give him my name.

If you weren't hurt and you want replacement value for your car, you are out of luck. The total loss is the book value of your car plus any additional equipment you had. Unless you had replacement value insurance you don't get that. But talk to Rich...

Not sure that the suit was valid if it was years after a wreck; therefore the judgment not valid. You need to get a consult from a consumer lawyer about getting it reopened. The national consumer law center in boston may be able to give you the names of some counselors.

Q: Is the RV loan co-signer responsible for damages in case of an accident if the RV is insured by the primary user?

1 Answer | Asked in Car Accidents for Washington on
Answered on Jun 24, 2017

None, but if you don't have money the gas guzzler needs to be fixed, and if the collision doesn't cover it she will be paying a lot of money on a set of wheels she doesn't own. Suggest you and or she try borrowing or renting an RV to see how you like paying for the gas, how you like using it. A huge investment if you only use it a few times a year. If it's used, like a house, there are many things that can be or go wrong.

You need to find out how the notice of changed date was made. You need an attorney. Contact www.naca.net to find a consumer attorney near you. You must act immediately. You found out April and you are asking in late June? A court won't buy that.

Q: While at a summer camp my child was lost on a supervised hike. Is the camp required by CA law to file an incident report

2 Answers | Asked in Juvenile Law, Business Law and Personal Injury for California on
Answered on Jun 24, 2017

They should have reported the children as missing. However if they never knew they were missing I don't know that they are required to report an incident where the children are found. However the public health department licenses summer camps and you would want to check with them. Note: there does not seem to be an overall group that monitors safety at camps!

Answered on Jun 22, 2017

Looks like you would have had to spend that anyway. So the difference is the 465? Not worth going to small claims for that as in a back and forth with the doctor on one side the doctor may well win.

Why? You don't want to get back with an abuser. He is where he should be. Sorry, but it's up to his lawyer to try to get him out. Not your job. You apparently did what you could do but the evidence was such that he got put away. That should be a message to you.
