A husband who drinks and drives puts his wife at risk of a lawsuit as well as himself. The existence of an insurance policy does not not lessen the wife's risk. Obtaining a separate insurance policy for the husband will not protect the wife from a lawsuit. Your policy should be reviewed as it...Read more »
They admitted fault, tried to make payment but what they offered wasn't enough to fix it. Can their insurance refuse to pay on the basis that their client wants to pay out of pocket. I didn't think that was legal.

They convinced us that bullion would be confiscated and then told us the coins they were selling us were worth $2000 each but they're only worth about $1300. She paid $2020 each. She bought 7. I want to sue but need advice as to which laws were violated.
