I purchased a used car for a small used dealership.it was listed as a2010 with 145k miles. I purchased and didn't read the paper work. It's really a 2007 with 195k miles. They changed the mileage babe. He only refunded me $400. What should I do.
I submitted a motion to set aside default a 2 months ago in small claims court. The motion was given a hearing date, but in interim the plaintiff accepted it and the same hearing date was changed to a pretrial hearing (and motion adjourned to set aside default). I did not receive a letter for this... View More
If you are having these questions, you need a lawyer. These are procedural questions. From what you describe, you had already been defaulted, which would otherwise effectively end the case for you and subjecting you to whatever the plaintiff was asking for. You seem to have successfully got the...View More
This incident happened in the middle of the night on a private inland lake in Michigan and there is a police report. The owner of the stolen boat left the keys on it but apparently my friend can't make a claim against their boat insurance since the owner wasn't driving the boat. My... View More
If a teenager stole a boat and damaged your friend's parked boat and boat lift in Michigan, your friend may be able to seek compensation for the repairs. Gathering evidence like photos and repair estimates can support their claim. Checking the boat owner's insurance policy for coverage is...View More
I am about to file a small claim. Two LLCs belonging to the same person are involved. Appliance Store where I was told to write the check and the HVAC company that provided the service and gave me the receipt. I was going to sue just the HVAC company but I am going to add the appliance one since... View More
More is usually better when it comes to Defendants. I see the form only allows for one Defendant. The court should allow you to sue two parties in one complaint. I suggest you call the civil clerk and ask how to fill out the form if there are two Defendants. (They may tell you: "we don't...View More

What a mess! Hopefully you at least got paid. The initial transaction could have been handled better (don't ever let someone drive off with your plate; when you buy a car at a dealer, they don't let you drive off with their plate.)
Not sure if she has any claim to successfully sue...View More
If you give a friend $3000 to take you for a stat CT scan and take you to the ER and you gave this money under extreme anxiety and emotional distress because you're a widow with no one to help you, and later when calm you ask how they could do that if they're your friend, and now you... View More
No. The more legal question becomes whether this was a gift or transfer made under a contract. In either case, you are out that money. When you give someone a gift, you lose control once the transfer is made; if a contract, the money is theirs once you offered $3,000, they accepted it, and gave you...View More
My medical insurance company has a contract with a company that provide transportation and other services. The company has failed to provide over twenty rides to the doctor and physical therapy appointments. Can they be liable or held accountable for not accommodating.
A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Until you're able to speak with a local attorney to figure out if you have a case that's cost-effective to pursue, you could review your insurance policy to make certain of what it covers. In terms of a...View More

My vehicle was totaled (Not at fault) due to an accident in Michigan. My vehicle is 100% paid off and I did not have collision coverage as part of my auto insurance. Can I file a Mini Tort or Small Claims for the book value of my vehicle at the time of the accident?
They did the repairs but I didn’t have a chance to tell them rather or not I wanted the extra work they did done now I have a high bill. I was going to apply for a loan but I wanted to see my car first they told me it wasn’t there but in their storage wherever that is, they also said they... View More
If the "repair place" performed repairs that were not authorized by you, I suggest you file a complaint with the State of Michigan Attorney General. Michigan will investigate your complaint and contact the repair place.
Can you? Yes. Should you? No. You need to understand that major corporations like Ford have entire departments full of attorneys working for them, any of whom would have a field day with a pro se litigant. The first thing they will do is remove the case to the general civil docket because 1)...View More
My son is Autistic and does not know any better and dumped shampoo onto my moms phone. Our apartment has two bedrooms in the back half with an access door. When its shut the baby lock keeps him from gaining access to the back bedrooms, one of which is my moms. I shut the door to make dinner, so... View More
I think you're right that you can sue them. I would try consulting a consumer rights attorney before trying it on my own. And I would plan to go ahead and sue in the general civil division (district court), not small claims. In small claims, neither party can have an attorney, and a business...View More
