Legal Answers
1815 Questions Answered

Q. Unresponsive Travel health insurance from a university recommended provider and plan
A: File a complaint with the Dept. of Insurance.
Q. yes i have a question about wrongful death if a lawsuit is filed for a minor child is it supposed to include both paren
A: Both parents should be plaintiffs in the wrongful death action.
Q. Hello I have a question regarding Auto insurance claims involving a minor
A: The insurer will deal with the parents and the parents will sign a settlement agreement and release. Depending on the amount of money involved, the settlement might need to be approved by the court. Any monies approved by the court must be deposited into an annuity, or a blocked account, which the minor cannot access until their 18th birthday. It is unwise to proceed with the assistance of an attorney. Consultations are fee so there is no risk to contact one of us to discuss the potential claims.
Q. Wondering if this CVC code would be helpful to me?
A: No.
Q. I’m in California and was hit by a car on my bike, I’m wondering who is at fault?
A: Sounds like your fault. You were going in the wrong direction on the street. He was looking to his left, turning right, because that is the direction from which traffic would be expected. I suppose that you have an argument that he should have looked to his right as well because of the potential of pedestrians and that, had he done so, he would have seen you. This is not an easy case and, in the absence of serious injuries, I don't think you will find much legal help. If all you want is the cost of your bicycle and glasses, give up now. Your actual recovery will be reduced by your percentage of comparative fault, which will be steep. Unless you were riding a $10k Italian racing bike, your potential recovery won't be worth pursuing, even if you win.
Q. My question is dog bites I have a 6 month old Great Dane Pub his new thing is the chase bike tires she Harbors to killer
A: Please consider re-posting with actual sentences. You are expecting attorneys to decipher gibberish, for free.
Q. My dog, fenced with-in my yard dug a hole on my fence. My adjoining neighbors dog stuck his head thru and my dog bit it
A: Perhaps none. You are responsible to maintain your fence to control your dog. However, their dog entered your yard. That is their responsibility. I don't think you have a duty to keep their dog out. However, notify your homeowners insurer. It may have a duty to defend and indemnify you.
Q. stopped in downtown S.F. and ordered out of my car but leave motor running, a person stole and totaled it
A: Your recourse is with your comprehensive/collision insurer; or, with the person who totaled your car, but good luck collecting from them.
Q. How do I help ?
A: The two thing you want to accomplish are mutually exclusive. The son is likely to witness the death of another puppy, or to experience loss of ownership to Animal Control. You choose.
