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... Read 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... Read more »
Will i get in any trouble if he tells the court that he takes all responsibility. It is small claims court
answered on Dec 3, 2020
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... Read more »
My mother has a judgment against me for $10K. She has passed away. I am her only child and was her power of attorney and heir to her estate. How do i remove this judgment from my credit?

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... Read 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.

I sold a condo a month ago. We remodeled the condo. It is disclosed in the Disclosure. Buyer contacted us and stated that the dryer's vent doesn't vent and cause retention of moisture that cause ceiling damage. When the contractor installed the dryer, the building property manager was in... Read more »

I'm surprised that the buyer's inspector did not note that the dryer was not vented. If the dryer is not vented then it should be a condenser dryer.
The issue here is whether or not you had knowledge of a condition affecting the property and failed to disclose that condition in... Read 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... Read 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... Read 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... Read more »
My vehicle was recently repossessed, and I didn't receive a notice to cure debt . Now I'm told that I have to pay late fee's ,past due balance of $100, and a $299 fee in order to retrieve my vehicle.

You may have a case for an "illegal repossession" and be entitled to get the vehicle back -- AND return of all the money you paid on the car. Contact a local consumer lawyer that specializes in repossession cases and request a free consultation.

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... Read more »

I never agreed to pay for anything other than $75 per month. He complained about overage fees a couple of times but I never agreed to pay extra.

You should not be worried. The coworker could have avoided the overage fees by switching to plan that allowed for more data. You could also argue that the coworker caused the overages and breached the agreement by revoking your access.
I bought the product at my local Best Buy store. So do I sue the company itself or Best Buy?
answered on Feb 17, 2017
They have to do business in the state. You may also sue the dealer if it's a product problem. Most states provide for service on an out of state defender in small claims cases by registered mail. Check with the small claims court.
My roommate decided to let my dogs out while I was at work. Normally I keep them crated while I am gone. Since my dogs are familiar with her I don't mind that she plays with them from time to time but I never asked as a roommate that she has to let them out daily. Since she has lost both of my...

You could. Not sure you would win as the standard is also if her conduct is reasonable. If it's a fenced in yard, unless they've escaped before it might seem reasonable to let them out and do something in the vicinity.
