I went to aaa to register it the day after I bought it but they told me I would need to go to the dmv since it was a lien sale but first I... Read more »
I had a leak in my ceiling in the apartment I rent. They rushed me out put me in another apartment but they damaged a lot of my property and a lot of it with sentimental value including an airplane propeller that my ex-boyfriend UPS to me when I got my bachelor's degree from flight school he...

This would not be an intellectual property question, but there's not really a law in regards to this. This would be more appropriately a question for the insurance company that was used to fix the ceiling. As far as I know though, most insurance companies don't give any additional value...Read more »
Couldn’t remember if I was supposedly served by summons UD around time I was severely sick or if I found it on my door as landlord had posted 2 violations of lease. Minor noise an corrected it. And stated number two. I asked. They brought number one noise complaint 3 days apart after being a... Read more »
Filing an Appeal is a technical and difficult task, even for an attorney, and you need to hire one to protect your rights. The problem is that an appeal is a "review of the record" of the trial, and what you are mentioning in your post is the evidence that you should have put on at...Read more »
They didn’t offer additional coverage, knew I had nonowners & loaned a vehicle. Vehicle was damaged & nonowner policy won’t cover it saying they should’ve never let me drive away with it. Am I responsible for the damages to the car? Or are they because of negligent entrustment?
Normally "negligent entrustment" is when someone entrusts property to a third person who then injures you. Claiming to be the incompetent person to whom the property was entrusted is an interesting legal theory but it may not fly in court. You don't say how the car was damaged.

Yes, absolutely. Once you win the Small Claims case, the court is done with you unless you have other matters, like an examination of judgment debtor. This falls into the category of "enforcement of judgment" and there are forms to do that, like obtaining an abstract of judgment which...Read more »
I recently purchase a home and hired a home inspector and had the property inspected and decided to move on with the sale. After living in the property for almost a year I hired an electrician, so I could add an outlet for my TV when the contractor saw my panel he refused to work on my property. He... Read more »
The statute of limitations for negligence is 2 years, breach of contract 4 years, but sometimes different periods apply to certain professionals, such as home inspectors. IMO you need to get your electrical problem solved first, and RETAIN THE OLD PANEL AS EVIDENCE. Take lots of photos showing...Read more »
Dear Unpaid Subcontractor: Your options for getting paid are two-fold: (A) a breach of contract claim against the General Contractor and/or (B) a mechanic's lien processing against the Homeowner. Clearly, you are not "required" to pursue the Homeowner (as intimated by the GC)...Read more »
Do Walmart employees have the right to take/steal your personal belongings that you 100% walked into the store with and that you personally own (and have all of the receipts proving that you have boughten them)...
Firstly, the seller had a fictitious 2021 tag on a truck with expired registration-dating back to 2017! The DMV demanded $800 to register the vehicle I purchased about 45 days ago. I got involved in a very very light fender bender coming out of a park in an upscale residential neighborhood. I was... Read more »
Two friends of mine and I signed a year long lease. We agreed every month we’d split the bills for the apartment three ways. In March, they bailed on me and moved back to Mississippi. We will receive an invoice for the settlement agreement (~10K), but I don’t know who they’re sending it to.... Read more »
Unfortunately, even though all of you are on the lease, the landlord can seek payment from any one of you. Since you all signed the settlement agreement, you are all responsible for payment. However, unless other language was included in the agreement, you are all joint and severally liable for...Read more »
The guests smoke marijuana, even though they have a no smoking rule that the owner doesn't enforce, resident/son is rarely onsite to monitor, I have high risk, serious asthma and respiratory complications. They are just ignoring the problem or saying they know nothing about and say it must be... Read more »
I was not burned but suffered smoke inhalation. I had the truck for one hour. An auction employee drove the truck to the front of the lot for me to take delivery. I was told it was driveable. The Fire Dept had to come put out the fire.
Sorry to hear that. Virtually every auction I've ever seen has a disclaimer both on the bidding number issuance paper and on the bill of sale that says that you buy it, you take any and all risks, that the auctioneer doesn't test or examine the vehicles and makes absolutely no guarantee...Read more »
Pain and suffering, like all elements of a claim, is shown via evidence, which comes in the form of testimony and documentation. Further, there is no calculable way to quantify pain and suffering--each case is different.
I was sued by my ex over a dog that we adopted while together but has lived with me 90% of the time since we separated. For the eight years since we separated, I would let him take the dog from time to time but never more than a week and usually just a few days. He’s lived in the same place since... Read more »
