Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. Can a uninsured motorcycle driver get a rental if they are not at fault but the other party is?
A: Yes it is possible. Oftentimes, if liability is not an issue, the adjuster for the at-fault party may authorize a rental and pay it directly. However, if the vehicle is totaled, they may either not pay you for a rental, or could authorize a short rental term while they are negotiating with you or until the check comes in. A lot depends on the adjuster. That being said, if they are at fault and won't give a rental, but you require a rental through the time they pay you for the full value of your property damage, then you may still be able to recover it afterwards. Just make sure to save your receipt, and try to document your attempts to resolve this with them. It may also depend on the type of coverage the at-fault vehicle has. A few unknowns for us here to fully answer the question. If you were hurt, many injury lawyers may help with the property damage issue as a courtesy and can handle the bodily injury claim on a contingency fee basis, waiving all fees and costs if there is no recovery.
Q. Great-grandmas estate sold for $136k in FL. 1:4 benef.; her son, grandson, me and my brother. How much will I receive?
A: We would need more information to know how much you would get. We don't know if there are creditors, attorneys' fees, costs, how the property was titled, what the estate documents if any say, etc. Once an asset is available to an estate, there is an order of payment we would need to look at to see what has to get paid, and what would be left to share among the beneficiaries. Sorry if I can't be more of a help, but it is too general of a question to know for sure without understanding all of the estate documents, status of the estate, creditor claims, fees, costs, etc.
Q. Can new evidence be introduced at mediation or no?
A: If it is mediation, you may be able to still introduce additional evidence, since mediation is confidential and for purposes of settlement typically. As to whether you can actually use the evidence if the case proceeded to trial, it depends on the case, and the status of it. If you want the other side to have time to consider the evidence at mediation, consider whether it is best to let them see or know about it before so they can review it or whether it is best to bring it up at mediation.
Q. What's the statute of limitations for bringing a wrongful death suit in Florida?
A: I agree with my colleague. I would also add that the time may be limited further if the at-fault party is a federal or state government entity, which may also have pre-suit requirements. If the defendant is a cruise line, the statute of limitations may only be 1 year. It is definitely best to get help as soon as possible who can investigate the claims.
