I'm sorry for your difficult situation. You could ask to see the report and conclusions of the plumber whose determination is used to establish liability.

I would have liked to offer a more unequivocal "yes" or "no" response here, but it is difficult to offer a definite answer without knowing the full terms of any agreements or paperwork/screens you signed, and the nature of the denial.

In virtually any jurisdiction, the owner/operator of the vehicle from which the dryer fell would be liable for accidents caused by the dryer and its debris trail.

I purchased my home 2 years ago. I filed chapter 7 5 years ago. One of the judgements I filed on has put a lien on my home I purchased years after my bankruptcy and now it’s holding up the sale of my house. How do I get rid of it?

I know that the the company has a standard contract that they will not change. I also know that the builder has a very good consumer affairs rating.

If you feel confident in putting your entire trust and faith in the person on the other side of the deal, that then becomes a personal decision on your part. Also, is the builder being represented by an attorney?
You should get advice--and the services--of an attorney with the Nevada Trial Lawyers Assn in the county where the wreck happened--they give free consults. I'm assuming it's their fault--if its your fault, the fact that he wasn't licensed etc doesn't mean you collect if it's your fault....Read more »
People must drive within the posted speed limit. Do millions of people do what you describe? Yes, because no one wants to linger for very long in a narrow slot between a large rig at highway speed and a concrete median. Your question remains open for a week - consider consulting a Nevada traffic...Read more »
Yes. Report the incident to the police. The police will investigate and will make the determination to file charges or not. Make the report. Even if they don't lay charges there will be a record with police that he was investigated that may be relevent some day.
