    You are going to have to get the registered owner to sign over title to you, or go to the DMV and petition for ownership by filling out such a form. It is difficult, but not impossible.

  • Do I have grounds for a malpractice suit? And could I collect additional compensation for postponing my wedding?

    My fiance is a UK citizen and we are trying to get him here on a K-1 Visa. We hired a lawyer and found out the process has been delayed because we did not complete necessary steps of the process that he never informed us about. He also never retur...

    Christopher’s Answer

    Difficult to say without knowing more of the facts. But, you stated..."because we did not complete necessary steps"... was this your fault or the lawyer's fault? I am not clear on what happened here from this summary, but it sounds like you allege his bad advise caused you harm. If so, the only way you will probably resolve this is to file a lawsuit for malpractice, and you have one year from the date of his malpractice to file suit. If you wait, then your claim may be forever barred by the running of the statute of limitations. I suggest you get all of the facts into chronological order, i.e. create a timeline, and then add up your damages, and contact a lawyer in your area for a second opinion. My impression is this may be a difficult case to prove, and the costs of pursuing a malpractice case may be more than your case is worth.

  • Can I sue an illigal alien for a dog bite that resulted in broken bones, stitches and emotional distress?

    The dog bite occured in a school, after hours during a soccer game. My son received many stitches on his face and is currently wearing a cast on both of his legs because of the broken femur. The dog owners are illigal aliens.

    Christopher’s Answer

    The important question is this: does the dog owner have homeowner's insurance? It is irrelevant whether they are here illegally. If they have homeowner's insurance, then get the name and policy number of their insurance company, and make a claim on behalf of your son, or hire an attorney to do that. If they have none, they are still personally liable, i.e. strictly liable if their dog bit someone. You generally have two years to sue, sometimes longer if the injured person is a minor, and if that is the case, then two years after turning 18, or until his 20th birthday.

    Christopher’s Answer

    I suggest you get the traffic collision report first. Then, get some photos of the damage to your vehicle. Next, you need to determine who was negligent, i.e. at fault. You can sue whoever was negligent, including the driver and owner of the vehicle. If you had no insurance, then you cannot make a claim against the negligent driver for pain and suffering, but you can recover your out of pocket expenses, like medical bills, wage loss, rental car, and property damage. You have two years to file suit. I suggest you contact the negligent driver's insurance carrier right away, and make a claim for both property damage and bodily injuries to you and your daughter.

    Christopher’s Answer

    I do not think you are liable, as you were acting within the course and scope of your employment for your employer, and for the benefit of your employer. Unless these were for your personal use, then you were acting on the best interest of your employer, and they are liable, not you.
