Houston, TX asked in Libel & Slander and Criminal Law for Texas

Q: my deceased husband and my log splitter was removed 2 days folowing his death by an ex wifes son and he damaged property

log splitter was our livlihood and he had no right to take it. he smashed the gate with our box van and ruined a $1000 hydrolic lift, messed the gate to where i could not secure the property, and left me in a financial mess and an emotional wreck. Ive lost alot of income without the wood wee sell and am still reeling from the all of these things that they have unfeelingly done starting 2 hours from the time i called and let everyone know he had passed and it has been unbelievably cruel. How can i make this right and get all that ive lost because of this ,paid back.

A: It sounds like you may have a claim for property taken and damaged. Whether that claim makes sense to pursue depends on how much was lost, and the likelihood of collecting a judgment from the person who caused the damage. I suggest you gather your documentation and consult with a lawyer in your area.
