Q. I was bitten by a dog, after being invited on the property by the owner, do i need a lawyer
A: If you were injured, you should consult an attorney.
Q. Who's insurance pays for the auto accident?
A: That's kind of a loaded question. There are several different issues in play. Were there injuries? If so, to you or to other people? Who was at fault? Did both drivers have insurance? Without more facts, it's difficult to answer this question. I, as well as most attorneys, offer free consultations to go over your claim. Reach out to an attorney as soon as you can to ensure your rights are protected.
Q. After an auto accident, how long do I have to file a claim?
A: In Florida, the statute of limitations on a typical automobile negligence case is 4 years.
Q. Can I take my appliances if I'm consenting to a foreclosure in florida?
A: If you've signed a consent agreement it may address these types of issues. Ultimately, it depends on whether the appliances are considered fixtures. A fixture is "permanently affixed" so that it becomes a part of the home. Some appliances fall into this category (think, dishwasher), while some may not.
Q. Can a condo owner turn his home over to a non family member for 10 dollars?
A: What do you mean by "turn his home over"? Are you looking at a quit claim deed that states "for ten dollars and other good and valuable consideration"? If so, that is typically standard language. The likelihood that the property was actually conveyed for $10 is very small. If you provide some more information, we may be able to give you a better answer.
Q. Regarding evicting "unknown tenants in possession": do these words have to be on the complaint and summons and do they
A: Is this an eviction action after a foreclosure? Adding unknown tenants is standard operating procedure in a foreclosure action. A motion for writ of possession (the eviction proceeding after foreclosure) will typically also list the unknown tenants because the motion is a continuation of the original foreclosure action. Unknown tenants do get served (or service is attempted) separately from known parties. There have been some recent lawsuits dealing with whether or not fees charged to a defendant for service or attempted service on unknown parties is proper.
Q. My bother has filed a frivolous lawsuit against a hotel in Orlando florida, what do I do?
A: Can you provide some more information? Why do you think the suit is frivolous? What are the facts of the case? Are you asking whether you have an obligation to do something?
Q. Is it against the law for a accident clinic to refer to an attorney for pay?
A: It may be a violation of Florida Bar rules. The Bar restricts "fee splitting" between lawyers and non-lawyers.
Q. Why is it so hard to get a injury lawyer for a occurred on public transpotation
A: Without more information, this is a difficult question to answer. It may be that the injury sustained is not significant enough to warrant the time or effort required to pursue the municipality. Most attorneys will give you a free consultation on a personal injury action. At the end of the consultation, they will likely provide you with a reason they are declining to take the case.
