In 2016 I gave my child a vehicle. They were instructed to register it and get insurance. They did neither. Instead they were rear-ended, causing them to rear-end another while at a dead stop. In 2017 my child and myself were sued. 3 months later the suit was dropped, I assumed because my child... View More
You are on the hook. Whatever you are paying apparently isn't reducing the principal. I fail to understand why plaintiff's attorney will not provide you a balance. What they won't do is send you a monthly statement.
A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Although some questions go unanswered here, one option is to add "Collections" and "Estate Planning" as categories - this sounds like it could involve more than a simple and straightforward...View More
I as a distributor of tea products place a brand customer's custom logo on the product and ship to their customer when they have orders. If one of these brands also has us place another 3rd parties logo (a 501c charity they raise money for) on the product am I at risk of any legal liability... View More
Those third party logos are someone's intellectual property, and I would advise you to obtain some kind of proof from your customer that these third party logos are allowed/licensed to be used in the particular product.

Why don't you call the hospital and request you need to speak with the legal department. If they don't have one, ask to speak with the individual responsible for payments due to the hospital and tell them you need help finding out where to send the payment. If that fails, send them the...View More

A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. This could be a difficult claim, where certain things could have been done better on both sides. In terms of apportioning liability, that could be a jurisdiction-specific issue based on the comparative negligence...View More
A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It's difficult to say what could happen. He could agree to accept all the responsibility with the other side, but he cannot control whether violations are issued for an uninsured vehicle - that's in the...View More
I'm sorry for the loss of your mother. You might have better chances of a response if you reposted in the Probate, Estate Planning, Collection categories. There's no guarantee that all questions are picked up, but your post remains open for four weeks and it isn't really a small...View More
Generally a landlord is not liable for noise caused by a tenant unless the complaining party is another tenant in the same complex who is being denied quiet enjoyment of their unit. Otherwise, noise complaints are properly directed to local law enforcement.

The police have received both of our statements where both sides state that he brake checked me intentionally. The insurance knows this and told me that because he intentionally tried to cause an accident they will only pay for half of my damages.
It does seem unfair. You could consult with a Wisconsin attorney. There is no mention of injuries, and I hope you were not injured. But keep in mind that if the claim is purely property damage, an attorney might not be able to handle it on at a typical contingency fee arrangement generally applied...View More
The seller of my home knew of diseased trees (received a bid for multiple thousands of $$) and did not disclose them on the condition report. I'd like to read the exact real estate legislation that I'm protected by.

When the contractor installed the dryer, the building property manager was in... View More
I live in WI. I did not pay balance owed, because they never repaired what was broken when I put in a work request for it, on the condition of major appliances leaking or not operational. I moved from there in 2008 because of the non repaired appliances. I reapplied for this apt. complex in 2018... View More
Your landlord had 6 years from the date the debt accrued to file a lawsuit or be time barred from pursuing it. This is what the statute of limitations says. Your main options are: 1) refuse to pay the balance because the landlord didn't do anything to collect before the statute of...View More
I believe that the LLC may be or may not be liable for injuries caused by its uninsured vehicle driven by the owner of the LLC in Wisconsin. First, whether the vehicle is insured has nothing to do with the liability question. Rather, liability for the accident and accompanying injuries is a...View More

She is suing or can sue for damage to her vehicle. I don't know whether her alleged lying about insurance led you to take the vehicle such that you relied upon representations it was an insured vehicle. That notwithstanding, I don't see the relationship between her lying about insurance...View More
