I'm sorry to read that this happened to you. Do you have automobile insurance? Have you submitted a claim? You should ask for an itemized list of all the charges. If it's a case of predatory towing, you may want to contact your Attorney General's office &/or the Department of Consumer Affairs.

If the will was signed with a self-proving affidavit, no witness is required. If not, one witness needs to testify in court that the decedent signed the will freely and voluntarily, appeared to have capacity to sign the will and no one coerced the decedent to sign the will.

Check the contract.

You should consult with an attorney.
Typically both parties have the right to defend the copyright.
Depending on the contract, it may not be an obligation for the licensee to sue or protect the copyright.

My cup ashtray caught on fire, nearly giving my husband a heart attack, and burning both our fingers. he is on ssi for a panic disorder. We called dollar tree who said their claim department would contact us. I was wondering with a fire and a mental disorder involved how much should I ask for?
