  • Can I sue someone for slander if they make a false police report saying that I'm a drug kingpin when I have NEVER sold drugs?

    I have lived in my apartment complex for almost two years. About two weeks ago one of my overzealous neighbors, after attempting and failing many times, was allowed to begin a neighborhood watch after a few kids bikes had been stolen in the neigh...

    David’s Answer

    Sure you can sue, but it will cost you more in attorney’s fees then you will ever get back because attorneys handling these type of cases do not work on contingent fees. Odds are that this person does not have much money and/or assets to satisfy any judgment you may receive. Depending on how serious the authorities are taking this false claim, I would remove all the weed from your house as well as any drug paraphernalia.
    If the person is truly bothering you (looking in your windows) then call your local police and report him.

    Good luck.

  • My wife rear ended me driving my car and I was driving her car. We have different insurance policies and we are excluded drivers

    on each others policies. Accounting to new law SB1567 can we still make an claim because we didn't know what excluded car really meant. I and her didn't even know it was on the policy.

    David’s Answer

    It would probably be best to have an attorney review your policies to see if the new law applies to you.

    Good luck.

    David’s Answer

    First try looking through your father’s belongings and/or safe deposit box for the policies. Also look and his checkbook/bank statements to see if he has been making regular payments. Ask the insurance company for a written explanation explaining the types of all 4 policies and how they all had “expired”. If you have not done so already have your father appoint someone financial power of attorney so that you can legally talk directly to the insurance company.
    If he had term life insurance and stopped making the payments then the policy(s) would lapse (expire).

    Good luck.
