  • Recently deceased father with guns - One is missing - What to do?

    My father had committed suicide a few weeks ago and In recovering the rest of his firearms, aside from the weapon he used to do the deed, I've come to the conclusion that a single handgun is missing. The precursor to his death was a long struggle ...

    Gregory’s Answer

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I would report the missing gun to the police in case it was stolen. Assuming you will be the personal representative of the estate, you should contact a lawyer for further information and possible probate. Please understand this answer is general only and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.

  • Fast food

    I found hair on my food in burger king can i be able to sue them?

    Gregory’s Answer

    Certainly talk to a lawyer in your area, but I agree with the advice you have been given.

    This response is for web page purposes only.You should not consider it Legal advice unless it agrees with a Lawyer‘s advice in your state. Laws vary widely from state to state. It would be best to rely only on the advice given to you during a personal consultation by a local attorney.

  • If I'm vicariously liable for a car accident, does that mean the driver who actually caused the accident doesn't have to pay?

    my roommate hit a pedestrian while driving my car, i was not in the car, but he did have my permission to drive my car. The insurance may not cover all the medical bills, will I be held responsible?

    Gregory’s Answer

    The law may be different in different states. In many states, if the driver was not furthering your business, i.e. no benefit to you for the trip, then you would probably be able to escape liability. May states presume that the owner is responsible for someone driving with his/her permission, but that presumption can be rebutted. In any event, your insurance would normally cover the loss up to the limits if the car was being driven with your permission.

    Definitely contact a lawyer familiar with the law in your state asap.

  • What kind of lawyer do i need, and do you think i have a case?

    About 15 years ago lightening struck my grandmothers house, and the chimney came crumbling down. The insurance company paid a contractor to rebuild the chimney. The contractors did a rush job on the chimney and the chimney is still falling apart t...

    Gregory’s Answer

    15 years is a long time. Most states have a statute of limitations on claims such as this. When did you first notice the Chimney was not constructed properly? You should check with proper authorities to determine if the mold is such that it could cause serious problems. I think you will have a hard time finding a lawyer that will take this case, but you shouldn’t delay checking with one.

    Please don’t take this as legal advice, but merely trying to help you find a direction and where to check for help.

  • What type of lawyer do I need if I am a victim of insurance fraud?

    Someone claims that I damaged their car, and now the I have the credit collection company harassing me about making payments.

    Gregory’s Answer

    Was an accident or wreck report prepared? Unusual that a credit collection would be involved at this point unless there was a suit and judgement. If they keep bothering you, you should consult with a lawyer or at least write them a letter (certified) that if they don’t quit harassing you -- a lawyer will be consulted.

    I was recently in a car accident in my brand new truck that I had for less than a month. I was on the freeway and a car in front of me slammed on their breaks and so did I. I avoided rear ending that person then got hit by the person to the left o...

    Gregory’s Answer

    Congratulations on not hitting the car in front of you. Why did the person in front of you slam on their brakes? Did you swerve into the left lane in order to keep from hitting the person in front of you? You should at least consult with a lawyer to determine if you have a valid claim.
