  • Can a landlord force me out?

    I live in the state of Connecticut. I'm a senior citizen with chronic illnesses such as diabetes and arthritis and other ailments, I recently got burned out of my house and have to live in an apartment for 6 months. My house is not finished bei...

    Tanya’s Answer

    Chances are it will take the landlord far longer than a month to get you out anyway. Additionally, there are exceptions for medical conditions. As stated by another attorney, keep paying the rent, and fight the process in the housing court. By the time its all said and done, its likely your house will be finished.

  • How do I get neighbor to help with shared driveway?

    I have a shared driveway with a neighbor. Has never been a problem until he moved and a guy from the Dominican bought the property a few years ago. It's a pretty big driveway and I use both a plow and snow blower to clear the snow but still need...

    Tanya’s Answer

    Chances are you are jointly and severally liable for that driveway, which means you are both 100% responsible. Other than asking politely to help with the burden, there isn't anything you can do. Hopefully we only have one more storm for this season!

    I purchased bad tires off craigslist - seller agreed to replace tires or refund money. They are now non responsive. I am suing for the $150 paid price. But i missed work due to a snow storm and bald tires = can I sue him for my missed day of wo...

    Tanya’s Answer

    The amount of money it would take to pursue that claim would likely far exceed the potential recovery amount. Additionally, while you could make the claim, your chances of success are very slim, as the snow was the superseding cause of the missed work.

    Tanya’s Answer

    Three things you should be aware of. In Connecticut, we have a specific ethical rule about returning client phone calls in a timely manner. Second, there is a two year statute of limitations on premise liability cases in Connecticut. If your case is more than two years old, and you either haven't settled or filed suit, you are barred from recover and your only avenue is legal malpractice against your lawyer. Third, you have a right to your ORIGINAL file from the lawyer (he may keep a copy). Make an appointment with his office and get your file from him. Then consult with another personal injury lawyer to see whether the statute of limitations has expired. If so, your only course of action is a malpractice action against the original lawyer.

    Class action would not apply in this case. Your best bet is to consult with a family and/or civil rights attorney in your area. Check the "Find A Lawyer" tab here at Avvo.

    Tanya’s Answer

    There seems to be more to the liability story than this. DWLS is not the cause of the accident, although that may have tipped the police office in favor of the cabbie's version of events rather than yours. The cabbie may have also claimed the right of way and the officer had to make a judgment call regarding fault.

    Tanya’s Answer

    Schedule a sit down with the lawyer and take a look at the lien letter for the $1600. See when it came in to their office, and what type of lien it is. Depending on the type of lien, your lawyer may be able to negotiate it.
