Legal Answers
53 Questions Answered
Q. What happens If the defendant is nowhere to be found?
A: That isn't a great answer. These days there are investigators that can find most people. If he can't be served, he can ask the Court for an order permitting service by publication or some other means. If he was served and he disappeared, you can just move for summary judgment based upon your own affidavit.
Q. Can we sue the state for a drain cover that's slightly protruded from the ground?
A: If the drain is not flush with the surrounding sidewalk, and it is a trip hazard, you can probably sue. I would take pictures right away and measure the height differential. Also, the State of NY, may not be the proper party, many utility companies have manholes and the City of NY has alot also. So the first step would be to idenitfy whose manhole it is. If it is a City of NY manhole, your mother in law has to file a notice of claim within 90 days of the accident.l
Q. How can I buy a land For my kids..kids will be shareholder of the new company..
A: Probably, creating a family trust is the best option to suit your needs.
