  • Can we go back to the store and let the management know about the situation even thou it was not informed right then and there?

    My mother and I were at Marshalls, my mom was looking at towels and all of a sudden multiple frames started falling on her toe. We did not inform management or associates because her toe looked fine. We got in the car and I asked if it was hurting...

    Forrest’s Answer

    Depending on the nature and severity of the injuries, maybe you should contact a personal injury lawyer near you to consult. It is always wise at the time of the incident to let management know of the problems. The problem later is whether you portray the event in a truthful manner in wrongly used wording that Marshalls will use against you to defend the case. Contact a personal injury lawyer today.

    Unclear about whether divorce decree has been entered or is a proposed one. Call an El Paso family lawyer to discuss. Should be several hundred dollars for a consultation.

  • My friend purchased a car on Saturday, but now doesn't want. Dealership says can't bring back since taken off lot..is this true?

    Just trying to see if she can get money back for down payment

    Forrest’s Answer

    Generally, a deal is a deal. You need to look at the fine print but unless there was misrepresentation, then your friend maybe out of luck legally. There is no buyer's remorse laws or waiting period in Texas. Best to be nice and see if friend can make another deal.

    Forrest’s Answer

    I am pretty confident that any claim to property not properly obtained over 100 years ago would be barred by limitations. Yet, if we are talking about the King Ranch, call a competent real estate lawyer for further advice.

  • Do I retain any liability?

    I live in San Antonio. I am giving one of my cars to my daughter to use as she attends graduate school in Austin. I own the car, but she has bought her own auto policy which I am helping her pay. As long as she is driving it with my permission, an...

    Forrest’s Answer

    Liability is in the eyes of the beholder. Yes, you can be sued. Whether you maybe held liable or not is another question. It appears that you have the blessing of the insurer. Best avenue is to title the car in her name only to avoid any possible liability claim. Your other children's issues will have to be addressed by you as this a legal forum.
