Ilene Stacey King's answer Are you a homeowner or property owner building a shed on your property, or are you in the business of building sheds? If building sheds something you do as part of your business, then you might be considered a general contractor. If you are a property owner hiring a company to build a shed for you on your property, and building sheds is not part of your business, then you are not a general contractor. If you are a general contractor and the sub does not carry workers' comp, then you have...
Yosef Kuperman's answer It sounds like you were an excluded operator on your family's policy. That means your family's policy on the car will not cover you. If you had another policy, (i.e. you also own a car and that car has insurance) then it may under some circumstances provide coverage. But that sounds unlikely.
It's possible that he's suing you because he needs to as part of an uninsured motorist claim. Uninsured motorist coverage protects him against being hurt by an uninsured driver. If his carrier is...
Reid Adam Winthrop's answer If you have liability only insurance, then you are likely not covered for any damage or harm to you or the passengers of your vehicle. You should review your policy to determine the coverages.
Anna Katherine Stone's answer Workers' Comp can assign a Nurse Case Manager to your file. We refer to them as the NCM. The NCM can meet with your doctors with or without you present. However, as a matter of practice, I send a letter to the carrier and NCM (if one is assigned) advising them I represent the claimant and that the NCM may NOT attend any appointments with my client and their medical providers. I only allow the NCM to notify my clients of date/time/location of medical appointments. NCM are not your friends....
Leonard R. Boyer's answer You have no chance of winning unless you retain an experienced litigation attorney. It is that simple. Trying to represent yourself in Court is a bad idea. Not only are you emotionally involved, but you are not a trained attorney. You do not know the Court Rules, Rules of Evidence, case law, nor are you trained how to handle a legal case, especially if litigation is involved. Do not let geographic restrictions get in the way of retaining the best attorney. Pick the best attorney you can find...
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer Paying the Citation (ticket) was an admission of guilt. You should have hired a competent attorney. Now you need another attorney to attempt to get the Department of Safety to allow you to drive in Tennessee.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer Your question has nothing to do with real property. Besides the roof condition, you must read your Insurance Policy. That Contract will control your rights. In the mean time find another Carrier now. Non Insurance is a Default under your Deed of Trust. It is very doubtful that after you get another Insurer, you will have sufficient damages to justify a suit even if the Insurance Contract was breached.
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.
Christopher Tolley's answer I know of no law requiring you to be present but your insurance policy may require it, or your insurance company may ask you to be present so they are sure they have the correct vehicle.
Mark Scoblionko's answer If you have collision coverage, you should contact your insurance company. If you do not, your only recourse would be to sue the other driver. Although you can handle this yourself in small claims court before a magistrate, you would be best advised to hire a lawyer. If it goes beyond a magistrate's level, you will have to hire a lawyer.
Anwar Sadat Montgomery's answer I would recommend searching for an attorney who handles "diminished value" property damage claims in El Paso. The bad part is that you may find it difficult to find an attorney who will take such a case on contingency (no-win no-fee), but there's no harm in reaching out to a couple of law firms for a free consultation.
Juan Ooink's answer If you had insurance on the date and time you were ticketed, you need to appear in court and show that proof of insurance. If you did not have insurance on the date and time you were ticketed, you need to show proof that the car was junked and that you have insurance now on another vehicle. If this is your first offense and you did not have insurance on the car on the date and time you were ticketed, you will be eligible for Court Supervision.
