Presumably you and the other driver exchanged insurance information. The other driver should make a claim with your insurance company for any damages they or their car suffered in the accident. You will likely need to provide a statement of what happened to your insurance company (they'll...Read more »
My friend is starting up a business, he’s doing good and now needs a shop to work. He does not have the credit to lease a place. He asked me to help him lease in exchange for 10% of earnings. What would I have to report to the IRS or does his total earnings affect me in any way? I am aware I’m... Read more »
I'm not a tax attorney, and you may need to consult one or a CPA for details, but my understanding is that the IRS only cares about your income received, so you need to report to them your income from that source.
You have 30 days (if served by hand) to respond to the complaint. If an amended complaint was filed, you have 30 days from the date of service of that document. But if no amended complaint was served on you yet, you can always call/email the attorney for plaintiff and ask for service of the...Read more »
The plaintiff in my case has been ProPer since filing. At the deposition he brought an attorney who was directing the questioning. There is no attorney on record. Had I known the plaintiff had a lawyer I would have hired one for the deposition.
Yes, once a party representing themself hires an attorney, their attorney must file a Substitution of Attorney with the court and send that to all parties in the case. This party may have been sneaky and filed the Substitution with the court right before the deposition and claimed that it had not...Read more »
I was in a semi accident two years ago. I tore my tfcc in my left wrist and disks in my neck are out of place. I had surgery to correct my tfcc tear in April of last year but now I’m having worse pain in my wrist. I’ve had steroid injections in that area so I’m not sure if they were just... Read more »
You always have the right to fire your attorney if you are dissatisfied with their services. Also, it's completely your choice whether to have the additional surgery or not. Your attorney cannot deny you the right to get that treatment for your injury.
Only if that person has opted out of the class can they collect a separate judgment against you for the same claim. If their claim is different, they may be entitled to a judgment for those other claims.
Somebody (obviously won't name) was in the hospital who was on a few different medications and out of it for awhile, woke up to a male nurse sexually assaulting her. The victim told a different nurse and the director came and took a statement from her. And that was it. The victim then wanted... Read more »
This is an absolutely awful experience to have suffered. I have experience with this type of case and empathize with the victim. I agree that preserving any evidence of the assault is critical. Memorialize any statements said to the victim by hospital staff, the nurse, director, as well as wow...Read more »

The motorcycle is at fault for not leaving enough room to stop in time given the conditions present on the roadway. Whether you are at fault for rear-ending the car in front of you is less clear, since you are also responsible for leaving adequate room to stop, but if the car in front of you...Read more »

It sounds like you need to hire an attorney to help recover your vehicles. If the vehicles were truly on private property and were owned by you, the police should have no reason to inspect or tow your vehicles (absent there being some safety issue being caused by them).
Do you have a partnership/LLC agreement signed by both parties setting forth that you were partners in the business? If so, your remedies should be criminal prosecution for forgery as well as a civil suit to recover what was stolen (converted) from you (e.g. your business assets/profits).
The lawyer represents two motorcycles who rear ended me and are 100% at fault according to their insurance companies...they already paid to have my car fixed. My insurance company was copied on the letter. Is there anything i need to do now that i've been made aware they want this data? I have... Read more »
I would talk to your insurance company and let them know what's going on. Perhaps they will assign an attorney to represent you in response to the motorcyclists' attorney, or perhaps they will speak directly with their attorney.

You should certainly demand that they return to fill in the hazardous condition they left on your property. If they refuse, you should get a quote from another contractor to fill in the hole so you have an amount to demand the septic company pay you (presumably in small claims court) if they...Read more »
My fiancé and I own a house together. We are splitting up. He wants to buy me out and said he would pay me for each month we’ve lived there. So I’ve paid $650 for 28 months so it comes out to $18,200. Is this the correct way to buy someone out? I’ve been researching and feel it should be a... Read more »
Yes, if you own the house jointly and it has increased in equity since buying it, you should ask for your 30% of the equity in the home. He may be offering to pay you for the months you've lived there to try and avoid having to give you your fair equity in the home. Of course, if the equity...Read more »

No, California is a two-party consent state, meaning that both parties to a conversation must give consent to have a call recorded.
