  • What is the legal recommendation how to handle this situation for my property damage?

    AT&T U-verse installed equipments at my primary residence by accident while trespassing my property during installation. The technician damaged my property by drilling a hole on the left side of my house thru the garage to run the cables. Af...

    Zebulon’s Answer

    I agree with attorney Zeigler. Document and notify them of the damage. You could always ask for a coupon for your troubles because it was gravely disturbing having them trespass, not to mention, keeping the box they left is good evidence it sounds. good luck.

  • Are we liable?

    My company is being sued for negligence to repair a piece of equipment. We were contracted to provide maintenance and repairs. It does not include the item that actually broke to cause the alleged incident in the break down of the "Scope of Work...

    Zebulon’s Answer

    it sounds as if the break down was not related to the work for which the company was hired. this would theoretically relieve the company of some liability but it would depend on the contract and what was the scope of services, if the contract is not that specific a trier of fact (judge) may look at prior business dealings between the parties. good luck and get a lawyer to aim for the best results.

  • Is their a time limit for filing a small claims against a auto mechanic for a bad engine?

    I want to sue a auto mechanic for a bad engine this happen in April 2015 can I still proceed or is their a time limit for filing?

    Zebulon’s Answer

    I would agree with attorney Berry that to resolve your dispute with a lawsuit you would most likely want to find an attorney to cogently file and present your lawsuit. Yet sometimes smaller amounts in dispute for which legal representation may be cost prohibitive need justice as well, and that's a reason for small claims court and the accepted practice therein of pro se litigants. If the dispute size or your options necessitate you may be able to represent yourself in small claims court, especially if you pick through and apply some of the sound advice in the previous answer within the window of opportunity. Good Luck.

    Zebulon’s Answer

    You should first make sure your wife is ok, and once you see to it her injuries are as taken care of as possible for the time being then you should contact an attorney to help with this. Someone you feel a meeting of the minds with, you view as competent, and who you find responsive in communication.

  • Is a lawyer needed to evict this tennant, and where can information be found to proceed without one?

    My grandmother owns a brownstone occupied by 4 tennants, but since she has suffered two strokes my uncle is managing the building as her executor. We would like to evict a month to month tennant, who does not have a lease, so that a family member ...

    Zebulon’s Answer

    Usually the quick and easiest way to do this is to hire an attorney who will speed the process along. Because of the informal agreements and month to month, you can expect a longer process if the tenant is resistant to moving. But my suggestion is to document all the communications and notices you give them of your intent to take unit off the market. This will "start the clock' on the moving process. Good Luck.

    It might depend on if you had any promise to help you and your business in writing. Does the grant money only go to people who stayed? You probably need more info about the grant money availability. Good Luck.

    Zebulon’s Answer

    You should lay out the facts with your family, and bring them into a few closed door consultations with attorneys. With it being a home invasion you will receive much more valuable legal advice in private consultations in person with attorneys than in forum postings. Good Luck.
