No reason you should--or not. Follow the path of the ancient sage, Lei Lo
Seriously, if you get a citation, plead not guilty if you think you were on your side of the imaginary center line. Do not give a statement to the other person's insurance if they call. They'll sound all friendly but...Read more »
I would prefer to use a Land Contract with installment payments specified and a forfieture clause defined. The land contract would not be recorded. Conveyance would only occur after all payments were made as defined in the contract. If the Buyer defaults on the contract due to non-payment, is a... Read more »
Unless West Virginia is way behind the times you should know that the use of unrecorded land contracts (a/k/a contracts for deed) for the sale of land owned free and clear are getting more and more rare--probably because the land buyers of today are becoming smarter and smarter. But hey: if you can...Read more »
Unfortunately putting your girlfriend's name on a deed is like giving her a half ownership interest in the property. I don't think you can get her off of the deed unless you buy her out. Hopefully you can work it out with her, but be sure that you have a written contract drawn up showing that she...Read more »
I was injured 7/3/1992. I am old WV Worker's Comp Law. I have permeant disability. Sedgwick CMS with held treatment for two years. I now have stage 4 spinal canal stenosis. In addition they had a independent doctor make a liabile statement that there was no reason I could not return to work. I have... Read more »
I do not believe that you can sue Sedgewick for anything. Your remedy was to appeal the decision in your Workers' Compensation claim. If you did not have an attorney in your Workers' Comp claim, you should have. He could have obtained a report from your doctor, and cross-examined the "independent"...Read more »
Substantially difficult and very frustrating for everyone involved. While you are permitted to file pro se, it would be much smarter to find an attorney who can help you and who will accept payments toward the fee.
Will reads; hereby give, devise and bequeath all the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, real, personal and mixed, whersoever situate of which I may die, seized and posessed ... Problem is his wife of a few short years (who cheated on him) he lost all trust in her, but she won't leave the... Read more »
I would need more information to give you a specific answer to your question. You are apparently the personal representative of what seems to be your late husband's estate. That does not mean that you are the sole recipient of the wrongful death recovery, even if your husband left a will naming you...Read more »
"Res ipsa loquitur" is a Latin phrase that means "the thing speaks for itself," in other words, an act or injury that does not occur without negligence on some party's fault. An example would be a doctor's cutting off the wrong leg in an operation. Without negligence, the wrong leg is never cut...Read more »
I am a Legal Studies student at Alderson Broaddus University. I am hoping to begin preparing for the LSAT as soon as possible. I am also still trying to pick a minor that would directly benefit me for law school later on. If there are any minor suggestions that you could provide that too would be... Read more »
Do some research on the respected companies offering review courses and find out which ones fit within your budget and schedule. Look into the quality and size of their test banks. You could learn techniques from good instructors, but preparation for the exam is largely a matter of doing lots of...Read more »
It can be, depending on the evidence you have. You will need to prove that a potential employer offered him a job; medical or vocational proof that his accident-related injuries and impairments prevented him from taking the job, and that your husband would have been able to perform the duties of...Read more »
At any intersection, the same rules under WV law apply. Your question did not indicate if the person turning was turning left or right. However, if turning left, that motorist must yield to oncoming traffic before executing the turn.
I work for a government agency and am paying my loans back under IBR. I am planning to apply for student loan forgiveness under the PSLF program when I am eligible in 6 years. I want to exclude these loans from a Chapter 13 payment plan and just pay them as usual until PSLF kicks in. Can I count... Read more »
Your question is out of my area of practice, but I believe that if you enter a not guilty plea, bail will be set. If you don't pay the bail, you will likely be held until you do make bail. If you plead guilty or are found guilty at trial, it's possible that you would be sentenced to jail. You...Read more »
Not necessarily. If the the other driver was cited, an insurance company would likely determine that the other driver was at fault. If neither driver was charged, then the insurance companies will look to other factors. In many cases, though, the investigating officer gets it wrong, and cites a...Read more »
A wrestling promotion is using my image from when I worked with them in a video promoting a wrestler trying to gain more customers to their next show. I never gave consent or signed paperwork saying they could do that
Your neighbor CAN sue you, but he could have a difficult time winning the case. The nature of your neighbor's trespass, the breed of your dog, and whether or not your dog has a history of biting people could be factors in the case. You should report the incident to your homeowner's insurance...Read more »
