Greg Freeze's answer The question is a bit fragmented. My reorganization of the facts may be wrong, but I will try.
Husband ("H") and Wife ("W") got a divorce in Hawaii. H moved to California. H changed the beneficiaries on his life insurance policy. Then H died. W survived and believes she has a right to the life insurance policy.
The missing document is the divorce decree or divorce judgment or whatever it might be called. If H was paying W spousal support, it's possible for a court to order...
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer If you insurer is reviewing the matter, they should let you know when they're going to make a decision re: your claim. They have 40 days to accept or deny your claim from the time
William John Light's answer You should have filed a Notice of Transfer and Release of Liability with DMV when you traded in the vehicle. https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/detail/online/nrl/welcome
However, the question is not what you need to prove that you don't own the car, but what the insurer/plaintiff needs to do to prove that you do own it. I would question it in writing how it intends to prove your ownership of a vehicle that you sold in 2012. The plaintiff has the burden of proof, not you. I would give...
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in California, but your question remains open for four weeks. The underlying principle of insurance, in general, is to reimburse people for losses they sustain. Depending on the nature of the case and payment, carriers can offset their payment to reflect funds already received. This is a general premise; it would be best to consult with a California attorney to be certain of your rights and obligations.
William John Light's answer Your question indicates that you are in Florida, but you asked your question in the California section. In California, if you are feeling suicidal, there are many options, including hotlines, personal physicians, the police and County Hospitals. If you are a danger to yourself, you can be confined in a psychiatric institution and given appropriate medications for a short period of time which can be extended in certain circumstances. I imagine that Florida is probably similar. Do not fixate...
William John Light's answer Impossible to say. You would need expert testimony from a vehicle appraiser or property damage estimator on the cause of the water damage and whether it was a maintenance issue or from a covered loss.
William John Light's answer Her insurance company will pay for damages she caused, up to policy limits. If your damages exceed those limits, you can submit your claim to your own insurer (hopefully your purchased rental car coverage), or you can refuse payment from her insurer and sue her in Small Claims for the total amount of your damages. Her insurer will still pay its policy limits, but you will have a judgment against her for the remainder. Whether or not you would ever recover on that judgment is unknown. She...
Thomas A. Grossman's answer In most cases the statute of limitations on a claim against your own insurance company for bad faith is one year (one year from the date of the bad faith). Sometime, it can be two years depending on the facts. I am not sure if he Small Claims Court handles insurance bad faith cases, but you may have already gone past the statute of limitations. You can get information on filing small claims cases from the nearest Superior Court in your County.
William John Light's answer Depends whose insurance is paying. If it's the other party's, usually it requires you to pay those expenses upfront and then reimburses you at the end. If it's your insurance, ask the adjuster. Unclear if the deposit gets refunded to you or is applied to your rental charges.
William John Light's answer There is no bright line in CA as to a total loss. Usually, it is at 75% of the actual cash value of the car. You painting the care yourself doesn't mean that the cost of painting isn't included in the cost of repairs. It still has to be painted. You currently at 68% of ACV, and it probably goes over 75% once paint is included. Further, with an estimate of 68%, there are frequently additional damage that will be discovered during the course of repair, pushing the cost even higher. In other...
William John Light's answer If you have comprehensive insurance coverage, it will pay to repair the damage, minus your deductible. If not, you will probably have to sue the dealership for the property damage. Bring before and after photos, and estimate/receipts for repair.
William John Light's answer If someone else is at fault, you are free to make a claim to their insurance at any time within the statute of limitations. If you cannot negotiate a resolution, you can file suit against the at fault person within 2 years of the date of the collision (assuming your case is an auto accident).
William John Light's answer It depends on the language of the policy. You would have to read it, or have an attorney read it. This is a very poor idea. Please reach out to a mental health counselor, your pastor/priest, and/or family members. Suicide causes immense pain for your loved ones.
