  • Does Wal-Mart have a set time frame that they have to respond to a slip and fall demand?

    My attorney submitted the demand almost 6 weeks ago and advised me we just have to wait for a response.

    Bruce’s Answer

    Typically, a retailer like Wal Mart does not have to respond to a slip and fall demand in any specific time period. It is up to the claimant to decide how much time is "too long," subject to any impending statutes of limitation. If Wal Mart has not responsed in a reasonable amount of time, it may be that a lawsuit should be filed.

    Your insurance company may pay the damage and charge you the deductable. Also, if your friend has valid insurance on her own vehicle, her insurance company may reimburse your company, plus return/pay the deductible back to you. If you don't want to pay the deductible and seek reimbursement, you may try putting the claim through your friend's insurance company first.

  • Parking lot accident while about the back up from my parking space-who's at fault?

    I was involved in a parking lot accident at work few weeks ago, we didn't file a police report because it was a minor accident. I was about to back up my car and I had my gear in reverse, my car moved a little, but I stayed within the limits of th...

    I would agree with the first post, it does sound like the accident was the other person's fault, as you were within your parking space. If you got the at-fault drivers' name and insurance company, I would submit the claim. Most people will be honest enough to admit that the collision happened, so the lack of a police report may not matter. Besides, the police report (at least in Georgia) in this instance would most likely not have a determination of fault nor a citation if the collision happened on private property. Your state's laws may be different.

    If you were indeed stopped waiting to make a left turn and were rear-ended, it does not sound like the accident was your fault. The facts as you have explained them are a little unclear on this point, however, that is what your caption/question states. Depending on the location of the damage on your car and the damage on the car that hit you, you may be able to prove that you were hit from the rear and successfully fight the ticket in court. Most of the time when you are hit from behind, the collision was not your fault. Fighting this may be considerably more difficult if the damage is on either side of your car. You may want to consult with a local attorney who is familiar with the local traffic court and judge and see if he or she can defend you for a reasonable fee.

    I agree with the advice given by the other attorneys who have answered this question already. I would like to add that in many states/cities you can hire an independent automobile damage appraiser. Many of these appraisers have websites and can be found using the search engines. For a fairly reasonable price (usually under a few hundred dollars) you can have a report prepared which you can also use to argue your case to the adjuster, in addition to the other sources mentioned above. The appraiser can also appear as an expert witness (for a fee) if you file suit and need to prove the value of the car.
