I got pulled over without proof of insurance and no registration. I however just got insurance that morning so if I bring my proof to court. Will they just throw my case out?
answered on Jan 5, 2023
You have (had) 10 days to bring proof of insurance. The registration is a different matter.
My trampoline flew into a pond owned by a privately owned golf course during a major wind storm. The trampoline was anchored down and was ripped out by the wind. I live in an HOA that is next to the golf course. The trampoline is destroyed. Am I responsible for cleaning it up out of the pond?
answered on Dec 14, 2021
What is the golf course owners saying? Even though it's an act of God, someone will still have to pay. Either the golf course will just do it on their own, or they will contact the HOA and the HOA will pay, and may end up tracing it back to you.
It may be worth your while to contact... Read more »
My wife was hit from behind by an insurance less driver about 6 months ago. We decided to sue as my wives car was totaled. The person who hit us appears to have moved and after about 3 attempts to have her served we’ve had no luck. The total damages equal about 4K and we had to take out a loan... Read more »

You need to talk with a civil attorney who deals with auto insurance. I'm not sure you have much recourse other than through "mini tort", which is limited to your deductible.
One other thing to keep in mind is that if this woman had no insurance and is now no where to be... Read more »

Risk analysis and calculation, as well as identity purposes.

I think an insurance company may find the reason for the rescission to be relevant, and could affect your premiums or eligibility for coverage.
I'm struggling to find help in my situation about having my deceased father's medical records release to his insurance company. I am the original beneficiary on his policy, but his oldest daughter had my name removed from his policy. I wish I can afford a lawyer to guide me through this... Read more »

It doesn't sound like your issue is necessarily with the insurance company. Their job is complete when they pay out the policy to the named beneficiary; they don't get into disputes like this. Your avenue of relief might be through the probate court; if a probate administration has not... Read more »
I was given a ticket for impeding traffic. I did hit the back left side panel of her car.

Michigan is a No-Fault state. This means that all drivers are required to purchase insurance on their vehicles and that if there is an accident, regardless of who is at fault, each driver's insurance pays to cover their own medical bills, lost wages and damage to their own vehicle. The... Read more »
My grandmother may pass before the check is deposited into her account how can my mom or uncles save it before it goes back to insurance
answered on Apr 6, 2020
The question is not altogether clear to me, but it sounds like the insurance payment is property of your grandmother's estate, and that a probate case needs to be commenced in order to deal with the payment. An attorney with the whole picture will be able to guide you through the probate... Read more »
I hit a building and it's my fault (negligent in parking lot, no drugs or alcohol involved). Can my insurance company deny the building owner's claim? Can the building owner (or their insurance company) sue me for damages?
answered on Feb 22, 2020
The answer is "yes" to both your questions. Although I'm not sure why the insurance company would deny a valid claim unless they were denying coverage for any number of reasons found in your contract with them. In which case the building owner could certainly sue you personally.
I will be cosigning for a lease vehicle for someone who has a poor credit score.
MY name will appear on the vehicles registration with the owners. This individual will be carrying their own and only auto insurance on the vehicle.
answered on Jan 20, 2020
Usually only the driver is sued; if you cosigned you aren't necessarily a registered owner. If you are, you need to make sure insurance is on that vehicle.
I was in a car accident a couple of weeks ago. We were at a stop waiting for traffic to clear to turn left when the car behind us did not stop and went right into us. It was a hit and run, but they were caught. Both cars were totaled. I was the passenger in the car, and have been going to a... Read more »

This is a perfect example why non-lawyers should never agree to do anything important when offered by a complete stranger--over the telephone? Really? There may still be time for you to extract yourself from the clutches of this uncaring insurance company--if you call a lawyer and ask for help. Do... Read more »
My roommates and I recently had a kitchen fire in the apartment due to turning on the wrong burner. The lessor replaced the appliances, brought in a cleaning crew, and then billed us! We were not given any chance to hire/buy anything ourselves. Are we liable for the bill? Note, it does NOT state... Read more »

I would look more closely at the lease. You may be responsible to return the property undamaged at the conclusion of the lease. That clause, I suspect, imposes liability on you. Sorry to not have a favorable answer. Were the fire to have been the fault of the equipment supplied by the landlord,... Read more »

answered on Oct 31, 2017
This may or may not actually be required depending on how the deed was written and recorded (was it done by an attorney or did someone go on the internet and ineffectively 'try' to do this on their own?) HOWEVER, if indeed you do need to open an estate, you need to petition the Probate... Read more »
grandma had 5 other kids who received something in their name. She always told me I was in place of my mother
answered on Apr 29, 2017
Your question is not clear. What did your grandmother's will/beneficiary designations say? She left things to the 5 other grandkids but apparently not you? What exactly are you asking?

Also she changed me from beneficiary 10 days before his death and put her. He had dementia and died from neglect. Now we will have to go to court for this small amount. Do I need a lawyer or should I be confident enough on my own to save me money. I'm a struggling mother and don't have much money.
answered on Jun 23, 2016
Successful litigation most often requires a competent litigator. Civil procedure is quite complicated. It would be in your best interest to consult a competent attorney.

The pedestrian negligently caused the accident and the insurance company paid for damages? Of course it could sue.
