Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. Where do I even start with a bad faith claim against my car insurance company?
A: Bad faith law is governed by state law. Depending on your jurisdiction there may be avenues to pursue through the state or ultimately through litigation. Many insurance lawyers will speak with you at no cost to give you some idea of your options and avenues to pursue.
Q. I recently started a job with a company, but found out that they are thinking of shutting down.
A: If you are an at-will employee and there is no employment or labor contract, your employer can terminate your employment for almost any reason. There are exceptions if the termination is discriminatory or you are otherwise somehow protected, but at-will status is the general rule in NY.
Q. If I create IP not specified in my contract, do I own it?
A: All depends on what your contract says, the nature of your creation, and other circumstances not clear from your question. So the short answer is, "it depends."
Q. My father died almost three years ago and his home where I lived and rental properties were in trust and transferred to
A: I don't fully understand your situation, but if there was an underwriting mistake or omission, whether because of the agent or otherwise, as a result of which you are not an insured when you ought to have been an insured, you might have avenues to pursue.
