  • If someone hits my car when packing out of their driveway are they responsible for the damages?

    My car was parked outside a friends house on the street (in a neighborhood). One of the people living at this house backed out of the driveway and hit my back bumper with his car. He claims that my car was not completely clear of the driveway and ...

    The answers above have done a good job of discussing some of the issues that you might encounter. The one thing that I wanted to add is that you should document the damage done to your vehicle -- get an estimate and take photos. These often prove invaluable.

    What type of lawyer I need to handle a case where I been falsely accused of assualt? I have not been charged of anything yet.

    Mark’s Answer

    I agree with everything discussed in the other answer.

    The only thing that I would add is that you can also be sued civilly for what happened. In other words, not only can the government charge you, but the person who made these allegations can file a lawsuit as well.

    In that case, you need to contact a civil defense attorney or represent yourself. In either case, it is always best, as the prior poster said, to keep the details to yourself until you can discuss them with a qualified attorney.

    Best,

    I agree with the prior answer. Also, since it seems like you may be involved in business or otherwise, check the local law schools in your area to see if they have any pro bono legal assistance for individuals or small businesses.

    I agree with the prior answer. It sounds like you are starting to backside -- you owe more than you can pay on a monthly basis and will start depleting assets in order to pay these debts.

    Using your assets to pay off debts is sometimes a good thing, but not always. Often, the people depleting their assets to pay creditors are only delaying the inevitable -- once those assets are gone, the debts remain, and there is nothing left to pay them with. In other words, they wind up worse off than they are now. You don't want this to happen!

    One of the best things you can do right now is to consult an Arizona bankruptcy attorney and discuss what options you have if you file, and whether it could relieve some of the burdens that you are facing while preserving your assets.

    I wish you the best of luck,

  • What happens next after a motion for summary disposition has been granted by the judge to pay a debt.

    What happens next after a motion for summary disposition has been granted by the judge against me to pay a debt? Is that the final judgement?

    Mark’s Answer

    The nitty-gritty of the process will vary depending on the state where you live and the particular court in that state where the judgment was entered. That said, a summary judgment is generally considered a final judgment, meaning that the collection agency can take steps to collect from you via wage garnishment and alike.

    In response, you have a couple of options. In some courts, you can ask for reconsideration -- or if summary judgment was granted because you failed to answer, that it be set aside. Otherwise, your best recourse is likely to be appealing the decision. I would strongly recommend that you contact an attorney to discuss these options.

    That said, in this climate, you can often head off this whole process by either contacting the creditor, or hiring someone to do so on your behalf. Often, debts can be settled for half, or less, of what remains owing.

    Good luck!
