Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in Texas but your question hasn’t been picked up in four weeks. Naturally, having the product available for examination would be preferable. But in general, that doesn’t necessarily preclude a plaintiff’s rights in a claim, particularly if the item is something of a generic nature in mass production. A consultation with a Texas attorney familiar with product liability cases could provide the most meaningful guidance here.
Peter Munsing's answer Classic problem with any rental institution. You are on the hook so it's easiest to keep busting your chops. As they are involved with lyft you may want to look for an attorney who handles employment cases and insurance "bad faith" cases and is a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association
Justin Charles Roberts' answer In most states, a borrower of a product is able to bring a product liability action. Notably, this has not always been the case. The law used to require a contractual relationship of some sort between the injured individual and supplier of the product in order for the injured person to bring a product liability action.
Justin Charles Roberts' answer This answer is somewhat complicated, but generally speaking, a drug manufacturer may be liable if they manufactured the drug incorrectly, concealed dangerous side effects of the drug, or failed to provide proper warnings about the drug. For example, a manufacturer of a blood thinner medication may be liable to some injured patients if the drug maker concealed the high bleeding rate among patients using the drug.
Peter Munsing's answer Possible but that is lengthy. Some states have parts laws (check out NPR program on just your issue). Try online. There are some people who do repairs who have figured these out. Cheaper for you to pay them to repair than for you to file a lawsuit and chase them.
Peter Munsing's answer Get it fixed. That's your damage claim. You want to file a class action? Talk to an attorney who handles product liability class actions. But your payout will be what it costs to have it fixed.
Kiele Linroth Pace's answer This is probably not an issue of criminal law. If you released the item to him voluntarily it is not a crime ... unless there is some reason to question the effectiveness of your consent. For example if he tricked you in the first place and never had any intention of fixing it, then it could be alleged that consent was obtained by fraud.... but that can be hard to prove unless he has done it to others.
This is probably best handled in small claims court but might not be worth the...
Jeffrey Joseph's answer My suggestion is that you can file the paperwork you have for the wreck with The Department Of Public Safety for Texas and they will place a driver license hold on her eligibility until she decides to get off her hump and help you resolve the claim. The insurance company for the rental should be able to help you with this process through their subrogation department if necessary. Ask to speak with someone in that department if you need to.
William Head's answer You need a lawyer to sue these folks, which means the landlord and the roofing company. Let the court case determine who pays, between the two of them. Look up Landlord Tenant lawyers in the Texas city closest to you, on SuperLawyers. com
