Everyone named in this action should hire their own attorneys to assist on this matter since everyone has their own interests in it. In order to have someone removed as a party, the proper motions need to be filed and granted - it's not as simple as just removing them.

An Oregon attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal and the loss of your home to fire. When you say you want advice, not answer, you may need to consider a consult with an attorney (if you don't have one already, where the attorney... Read more »

It means essentially what it says, as in the case of when did an accident occur, when did a breach of contract occur, etc. Two different people could probably present arguments for the use of either date, if additional details were available. Good luck

The cost to litigate such a case could exceed the replacement costs to the heater. If other residents in your area also sustained related damages, that could help spread legal costs. That could be something to look into before consulting with a local attorney. Good luck

Sounds like you will need to sue them. I doubt a letter alone is going to dislodge $100k from someone. You need a real threat. Give me a ring and I can look at it with you.

This depends on the nature of the work. Most residential home improvement type work requires that the contractor have a CCB license. You can fire him if he is doing this work unlicensed. He could potentially try to sue you if you have a signed agreement with him- anyone can file a lawsuit. But I... Read more »

Your best solution is to get bids to fix the problems. Adding soffits and vent fans is not extremely expensive. Oregon has statutes of limitation which prevent lawsuits after certain time periods and while there are many different time periods the statute of ultimate repose, which is the end all... Read more »
