  1. Can the business whose parking lot a customer's vehicle was stolen from be held liable for the resulting monetary loss incurred?

    often, businesses such as parking lots or garages have disclaimers on the backs of the tickets or on the contracts which attempt to limit the liability of the business for such claims. Some of these limitation of liability clauses are valid, and others are not. Still, it may be worthwhile to ask to make a claim against the business's insurance. There is a legal theory that one has no duty to anticipate a criminal act, but under the facts provided, there was notice of such criminal activity,...

  2. Car accident while on ex husband's policy (day of divorce)?

    If you were insured under the policy, I see no basis for your ex to successfully claim a right to reimbursement from you for higher rates. Tell him that now that you have your own policy, there should be no rate change to him. If so, then he should shop around for a different insurer.

    If indeed there is a court order to turn over the records, and the records have not been turned over, a motion to compel or possibly for contempt might be in order. The court that entered the order should be willing to enforce it.

    Usually, it is the driver's insurance that will pay for this -- if there is comprehensive on the son's policy. But in this case, you need to look carefully at the contract signed when the car was rented, which should note whether there is other insurance which might cover the damage.

    Oklahoma law requires owners of motor vehicles to have insurance on them to cover the owners and the operators of the car. If the operator has insurance, then the owner doesn't need it. A. Every owner of a motor vehicle registered in this state, other than a licensed used motor vehicle dealer, shall, at all times, maintain in force with respect to such vehicle security for the payment of loss resulting from the liability imposed by law for bodily injury, death and property damage sustained...

    Let the credit card company know she is dead; the house is probably protected under the homestead laws.

    You were a passenger in your own car? Under Oklahoma law, minimum insurance limits are $25,000 per person, up to $50,000 per accident. Thus, the offer may be for the policy limits. But, you may be entitled to med pay and to uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Note that the hospital and doctors will want to be paid from the $25,000. You should talk with a lawyer before you settle.

    You should contact a lawyer who will make a claim with the state insurance guarantee fund. This fund helps to pay claims when insurance companies go into liquidation.

  9. In Oklahoma is everything split up 50/50 in a divorce even if the home and the car are in one person's name? (belongings too?)

    1 lawyer answer

    Oklahoma requires that property acquired during the marriage be split equitably, but not necessarily equally. You do not say when the car was acquired or how long the parties have been married. The fact that the car is in his name will be helpful. She is not entitled to the house he had before they were married, although she may be entitled to any increase in value to the house during the marriage. If things are as bad as you describe, the best thing would be to file for divorce or...

    You may be able to get paid for the property damage to your car if the payment to your husband was not authorized. If your husband did not own your car, there may be an argument in this regard. But you may be better off trying to get the money from him in the divorce action. Your attorney can advise you.
