Timur Akpinar's answer I don’t practice in California, but your question hasn’t been picked up in four weeks. A fundamental reason for purchasing insurance is so that the carrier will defend you against claims by parties alleging that they have been harmed by you. A consultation with an attorney in your state should enable you to determine what your recourses are in this matter. Have the policy available so that the attorney could review it.
Ellen Cronin Badeaux's answer The owner can argue she is not in possession of anything found and the driver can argue he's not in possession of anything found. It'd a he said, she said. It will come down to credibility and circumstances: where in the car, hidden or in plain sight, etc. Both can be charged. But search will probably be adjudged legal. Both owner and driver need separate counsel.
Joseph D. Allen's answer At this point, you should simply notify (in writing) the Condo Association and/or the contractor that you are unsatisfied with the work. If you do not get a reasonable response (reasonably promptly), you might then want to speak with an attorney about the facts and if you have a viable claim, and against whom. It is also possible your insurance would compensate you, and help deal with the responsible parties- but you should make a claim fairly quickly.
Charles Candiano's answer Indiana only requires that a formal accident reconstruction be prepared after fatal accidents. If someone died or suffered obviously life-threatening injuries, they would have taken the necessary measurements and photographs of the vehicles, gouge marks, and any other memorialization of the accident, in addition to what was reported by surviving drivers and bystanders.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer If the life insurance had the brother named as beneficiary, you and your daughter would not be entitled to the insurance proceeds. Your daughter's uncle has no duty to support her.
T. J. Jesky's answer There is an old saying, "Nothing is Life is Fair." You answered your own question, i.e. your mother waited too long. Once the judge ruled to pay the fine, your mother needs to pay the fine. If you try to vacate the judge's order, it will cost you more than $700 in legal fees, and you will most likely not prevail.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Usually the mortgagee or its servicer can obtain insurance if the borrower has failed to submit proof of insurance; that may be what happened in this case. I suggest that you ask your insurance broker (Citizens) to look into it for you.
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.
Richard Samuel Price's answer It would make a difference as to what type of probate matter your step-mother filed. She could have filed a spousal property petition or petition for letters of administration or even some other type of probate action. You'll have to bring this case to an attorney to review your documents and determine what is needed.
Manuel Alzamora Juarez's answer Not sufficient facts to answer your question. But, let's assume you were the cause of the accident. First, you stand to lose your driver's license if you do not present proof of insurance to the DMV. I you have money and property, then you may be liable for all the expenses to the injured person. If you were the injured person, then, you may only recover for economic damages and out of pocket damages but not for pain and suffering because the insurance lobby got the law passed that drivers...
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.
