    This is a complicated area of law. The simple answer is that it all depends on the language of the policy and you need a good personal injury lawyer to tell you that. If there is a way to deny coverage, the insurance company will deny coverage and you will need a lawyer's advice. I suggest you see a lawyer now, have the policy examined, and perhaps have the lawyer notify the insurer that he has examined the policy and expects full coverage. One more thing, don't assume that a policy of $1.5...

  2. Does a company have a right to charge a fee when it does not provide the service to charge a fee?

    I suspect that the fee agreement you signed was modified by them to include this fee and by continuing to sell, you agreed to it, although unwittingly. Most of these places have a fee agreement that says they can change the terms with something like 30 days notice. I am sure they can tell you when it changed. Yes, they can legally charge the fee, your recourse is to do business elsewhere.

  3. I fell in a casino in OK because there was water on a very slick ramp. I live in Texas. How do I go about getting compensation?

    I agree with the first answer, but want to add that it will be important who owns the Casino. If it is owned by an Indian Tribe, the rules are different. Most tribes have not and will not waive their immunity from lawsuits, so you need to negotiate with them. Many have tort claim forms to start the process. You need to see an attorney and if this was in and Indian owned Casino, see one experienced in Indian Country law.

    The owner of the property has a duty to protect you from known hazards. I am suspect of the septic tank lids that you describe as so flimsy, they may not be the correct type of lid to meet building codes. You should take pictures of them right away. The first answer here is correct, however, if you did not seek any medical care, you have little or no proof of injury and without that you have no damages to recover. You should, however, report this to the City of Puyallup so they can inspect...

    Correct that he can give you a power of attorney, but I would check with the apartment manager and make sure that they will accept that for his signature. Also, if he is in the military, you may be able to get some help from staff at the base who could provide the correct form for you. I am sure they have this issue quite often. Good luck.

  6. It is legal for a 25 years old boy to date a 17 years old girl in Washington state?

    The first attorney is correct. The age of consent in Washington is 16. Therefore, there is normally nothing wrong with a dating relationship here. One big exception, however. That is that if the "boy" is in a position of authority over the girl, such as teacher-student and other relationship, any sexual relations would be prohibitied and unlawful. Non-sexual "dating" may well be an ethical violation or employment violation for a teacher or other professional who has a special relationship...

    If your criminal case is resolved and you have the County and number of the case, you can get documents directly from the Clerk of the Court. The number should be only any pleading you have in the upper right hand corner. Go to the County Clerks office and show them the number and ask for copies of the entire file that you need. There will be a copy charge.

    You should get a real estate lawyer. The problem is exactly what your buyer is concerned about. While the title and title insurance may be good, the County may not recognize that as a legal lot and they may not issue a building permit for any construction thereon. The fact that the chain of title is good is not relevant to the issue of whether the lot was created within the laws of the County. Prior to 1972, you could "create" a lot by just giving someone a deed with a legal description....

  10. My divorcee decree states that I am to pay chld support until our son turns 18, do I have to pay for any post secondary educ?

    It depends on what is in your actual decree. Usually it states whether you have any obligation beyond 18 years. If it says nothing, then the presumption is that you do not have to pay. However, you say he is asking that it be raised to $400. If this is an actual petition to the court and the child is not yet 18, then it could be modified. You should not ignore the motion even if you do not have an attorney, you should go to the hearing and present your income and facts.
