    An experienced litigation attorney can advise you on how best to claim your loss. My firm has years of experience litigating cases, including breach of contract claims. In your case, since the seller not only failed to deliver the agreed upon number of vines, but failed to provide vines that produce fruit, you have a compelling case of breach of contract. You may claim reimbursement for what paid for the vines plus any further loss the breach may have cost you (e.g., perhaps you can...

    Regardless of how old your son is, he was a guest at your home. You gave him permission to be on the premises to do laundry. Moreover, when you asked him (and further invited him) to the garage where you had spilled antifreeze, you exposed him to the risk of slipping and potentially seriously injuring himself. Washington law protects guests from such hazards. Individuals pay for renters insurance or homeowner's insurance to insulate themselves from risks and losses of this kind. It...

    You may have both criminal and civil claims against your husband if you have contracted an STD or HIV. You may have additional claims, depending on the severity of your condition. I f you have not contracted anything, then your potential criminal and civil claims could be for assault (threat of bodily harm) from the moment you learned of his past behavior to present. I.e., you are currently living in fear that you may contract an STD or HIV, even though at the time you were with him, you...

    Good eye. Typically property damage claims are settled separate from personal bodily injury claims and the release language should reflect that distinction. It may be best to get a consultation or two before making a decision about how to proceed. Most lawyers offer a free consultation, including my firm. Good luck.

    I practice personal injury law in Washington State. Yes, the other driver's insurance covers you so long as that driver caused the accident. You should immediately notify that insurance company of the collision and assert your personal injury claim. You should then speak with a personal injury lawyer about how to protect your rights and obtain fair compensation from the insurance company. Good luck.

    The fact that the other insurance settled your daughter's claim, but is disputing your claim, is nonsense and is a delay tactic by the insurance company. To protect your rights, especially in light of the near-approaching statute of limitations, you should get a free consultation with an attorney immediately!

    No. The bar customer is personally responsible for drinking and then driving over the legal blood alcohol limit. Any questions about the DUI should be addressed with a DUI attorney.

  8. I was libeled and slandered at my employment should I sue the individual or the employer.

    You raise a couple issues: 1) slander and 2) intentional infliction of emotional distress. Both are torts under Washington state law. Both require that the plaintiff meet his burden of proof. 1. Slander. Proving a case of slander is quite difficult. You must prove every element of the claim: that false statements were spoken to a third party and that such statements damaged your reputation. In the instant case, since you are still employed, your professional reputation has not...

  9. If a landlord fails to provide the tenant with a deposit refund within 14 days in WA state, can the tenant demand a full refund?

    Within 14 days of your vacating the premises, the landlord must either fully refund your deposit or provide you with a written explanation as to why a partial, or no refund, is made. Absent a timely refund or explanation, you are entitled to your full deposit. You can pursue this matter in small claims court. Small claims court has a nominal filing fee. Good luck.

    at least 24 hours. if he continues to ask you (while giving 24 hours notice), and it starts to interfere with your quiet enjoyment of the place - you should say something and negotiate either compensation or a scale back in the number of showings (i.e., limit it to one open house/week).
