Q: I no longer wish to sell my house but the closing is in five days. What can legally happen to me?

Peter N. Munsing answered on Jun 19, 2019

Mr. Gallo has it. Talk to your realtor. If you don't have one, talk to a lawyer who handles real estate deals.

Certainly if you have cold feet you need to tell someone now, not later.

I'm not sure about the question, but the charges are very serious and you need to 1) no longer ask about this on a website--the website is public and DA's offices do look at them ; (2) contact an attorney who handles criminal defense. 3) if sued, turn it over to your insurance company.

2 Answers | Asked in Car Accidents for Tennessee on

Q: Is there any way to get the addtl $ to repair damage to my car? Ins co values car at $2900 and repairs are $4K+.

Nafa all I want is my 2003 Acura put back the way it was. Geico is claiming a total loss because it needs a rear quarter panel. Based on the condition of the vehicle prior to this accident it was valued at $5K.

Peter N. Munsing answered on Jun 15, 2019

It's their choice to give you either the total loss value or cost of fixing. If you say it's valued at 5k then your argument is that their total loss value is incorrect. If you were hurt I suggest you contact a member of the Tenn. Assn for Justice--they give free consults.

Q: Does modifying your tail lights to say “LOL” make it so if I get in an accident, it can be used against me!?

The tail lights’ turning signals are untouched and are in no way modified. Just the surrounding light for practically running lights.

Peter N. Munsing answered on Jun 15, 2019

It won't enhance the penalties, assuming that having a distracting light isn't a violation of SC vehicle codes. However, if you are in a wreck and cause the wreck someone will make reference to it if they see it. It's like an aggressive bumper sticker--not illegal, won't change the fine or not, but...

This is a bit bizarre but nonetheless you should not give the attorney anything but turn it over to your homeowners and let them handle it. They will hire an attorney for you if you are sued. By the way no more posting on social websites--this one included. Good luck.
