I've just been given the run around about my refund ($1244.67) for an iphone 13 pro max, which was sent back within 2 months from purchase. I did buy the renewed premium, so that extend the return date to 365 days from purchase. I have and sent to Amazon's customer service the proof... View More
You could initiate a small claims case, but you will need to pay the filing fee (typically around $150), and then serve Amazon with a copy of the Complaint. They probably have a registered agent for service of process you can find on the California Secretary of State website. Once you do that, the...View More
I contracted a company to build my pool , las July. I paid them up front. They were very proactive in getting the work done in the first 5 months, 6 months have passed and they haven't done anything on my backyard, and have not met any of their deadlines. I feel like they have abandoned my... View More
It is against the law for a contractor to collect payment for work not yet completed, or for materials not yet delivered. Please see B&P Code 7159(d)(9). If they had you pay for all the work upfront, then that is illegal and their contractor license could be in jeopardy. Depending on the terms...View More
I own an ebike rental company in lake tahoe. My competition claims “voted #1 ebike rentals in lake tahoe”. There has never been any type of vote. We have more reviews than them and a higher rating across all platforms. To me it is clear false advertising but i am curious if an attorney... View More
I'm not a marketing and false advertising attorney by any means, but my first impression would be that it is pure puffery and a legal statement. There may have been a vote and you just have no idea about it. For example, maybe they asked 5 local businesses who the best e-bike company is in...View More
by the tree on their side of the fence. It pulled up the cement and tilted one of the posts. I have photos of the damage and the tree. I had lined up someone to come give an estimate. I have email exchanges. The last we left it, she was going to coordinate the cement work with when I had the... View More
You should refer to California Civil Code Section 841 which addresses homeowner's responsibilities and rights when it comes to fence repair with adjoining neighbors. You could just tell them to pound sand, but that wouldn't be very neighborly. I would suggest explaining what you said...View More
My neighbor hired a tree trimmer to cut down a tree in their yard. Tree trimmers walked around to our side gate, opened our gate, entered our yard, cut down one of our palm trees 20 feet away from the fence line, inside of our yard, left the tree laying in our backyard, broke a sprinkler when it...

I would suggest first getting the name of the contractor from your neighbor if you do not already have it. You can either reach out to the contractor directly or hire an attorney to do so on your behalf. Most of the time you will get more traction if an attorney is sending a demand letter on your...View More
I was walking on 103rd (La county) and fell into a 1 foot deep pothole on the sidewalk, thus tripping and breaking my 3 front teeth. I was unaware of the hole and wasn’t able to see it during the night. I have the medical cost to fix and witnesses. This problem had already been reported to the... View More
You potentially do have a case. I am not sure what city or county "103rd" street is located in; however, the street is likely owned and maintained by a public entity in which case you will need to figure out who the correct entity is and serve it with a Government Tort Claim notice within...View More
The injured party should only speak with his/her attorney, assuming the injured party has retained an attorney to represent him/her. if the injured party has an attorney, then the attorney will communicate with the liable party or his/her insurance company.
If other lawyers you have spoken to are not interested in taking your case, maybe the problem is you do not have a good case. You should continue to reach out to medical malpractice plaintiff attorneys to see if they would be interested; however, if they are all turning down your case, they...View More
If you buy a construction company in California do you get their license and does the owner that holds the license need to stay on board? If the license holder, quits, is fired or for any other reason leaves the company would the license stay with the new owner?
A company cannot get a contractor's license, at least to my knowledge. An individual can obtain a contractor's license, then setup a company (sole proprietorship, LLC, corporation, etc.) and then that company can contract under that individuals license. Thus, if you were to buy a...View More
I believe the CSLB will perform an investigation; however, if there are no violations found, they likely will take no action. If there are violations found, the CSLB could suspend your license, revoke the license, make you pay a fine/penalty, public letter of reprimand, etc. I do not believe the...View More
I took a leave of absence from work in December of last year (2022) due to a medical issue and I informed my employer I would not return to work due to that issue this year on February (2023). My company renews all vacation time and sick time on January of every year. Although I did not work a day... View More
It depends. Some business provide for sick time and vacation time on an accrual basis. Meaning, you accrue maybe an hour or two per pay period. If you have not worked in January or February, you might not have accrued any vacation or sick time for this year. Alternatively, you may have only accrued...View More
I would suggest reaching out to the defendants attorney in the criminal action to see if they are representing them in your civil matter. Just because the attorneys represent the defendants for a criminal matter, does not necessarily mean they represent them for everything, including accepting...View More
I confirmed with sharp that he received both MMR immunization shots from SHARP but they only reported one of the shots to the CA IMMUNIZATION REGISTRY. Kaiser pulled the CAIR registry and recommended a second MMR shot which he received but it was actually his third shot and was not needed. Because... View More
If your son received an extra shot he did not need, was he harmed or injured? What you suggest in your question is that "this could cause medical complication for him in the future." What evidence do you have to suggest he "could" have problems in the future? Future injuries are...View More
itself states that any changes with out a reason explaining for that change will be invalid and the customer will not be held responsible for that change . what can I do if they won't remove that increase from the amount they say I owe.
I am a little unclear as to what you mean by the solar contract has a $10K price increase. I assume you signed a contract with the solar company before any solar panels and equipment were installed. Are you saying that the contract did not have this $10K price increase when you signed it? Or are...View More
The other driver was at fault. He ran, and she followed into wal mart. Police arrived, has them exchange info. We found out that our ins lapsed 14 days ago. Are we liable? Do we still file a claim with their ins? How do we prove who is legally at fault? (Just a side note, Her 8 year old was in the... View More
Did the police prepare a report? If so, I would get a copy of the police report and see who the police found at fault. If not and you think the other driver was at fault, you should contact their insurance company to see if they will cover the damages. If they will not, and you feel the other...View More
I joined Instagram to support an account that rescues stray cats. So I only followed 3 or 4 very close friends and a few stray cat rescue accounts. Since then, the number of people following my account has continued to grow, but I haven't follow them back because 'following' someone... View More
I have Instagram and it often suggests people for me to follow, etc.; however, it is obviously the users choice to choose to follow back or not. I personally do not see a lawsuit here since ultimately you were the one who choose to follow other people, you clicked the button, etc. I am not sure...View More
My 18 year old daughter entered an ER in California with a very bad headache. She listed her medications on the intake form. She was given a "migrane cocktail" with a medication that was contraindicative of her current medications and had a couple of days of lasting effects. In addition,... View More
If your daughter went to an ER complaining of a "very bad headache", a CT with contrast (dye) was likely indicated and complied with the standard of care. In this regard, the health care providers needed to rule out some etiology that could be causing the "very bad headache"...View More
We sold the business and we have a hard time on getting access to the accounting data for the past years, when we were in charge of the business. Please let me know our rights in this case, as accounting was done through QuickBooks online and new owners took over the existing data.
I assume there was a contract prepared for the sale of the business. You should first look to the contract to see whether there is a specific carve out for pre-sale accounting information and who would be the owner or at least have access to it. Your relationship with the purchaser is contractual...View More
We have panels install but not connected to SCE yet. It has been a horrible experience and we now have water damage to our living room wall where they left a hole in our stucco when they installed a new electrical panel.
It sounds like this has been a terrible experience to say the least. You may have a breach of contract case as well as a cause of action for negligence. You should consult a lawyer to review the contract. Is the solar company refusing to repair the damage to the living room wall? If they opened up...View More
California contractor walked out of job claiming he needed payment, and has not returned for 60 days. Job approximately 90% complete and payment of 80% made. However, many errors on project (ie. contractor painted schluter as wrong color installed, 4" vs 6" backsplashed installed,... View More
You may want to get an attorney involved. Often times I have found that simply having an attorney send a demand letter to the contractor, that motivates the contractor to complete the project in a timely manner.
