Hello. My name is***** and I am going to assist you with you question.
First of all, no owner can shoot someone for simply trespassing. So, if the construction company is using the private driveway (even if they are not permitted to do so), no owner can use deadly force against them.
I need to say this part right off the bat prior to discussing the real property issues.
No. I am typing the answer. Plus you haven't paid yet.
From you example it is not clear who owns the road. It seems like the road may be a common area between the 3 properties that is not owned by the state. If that is the case, then ownership of the road is shared between all 3 property owners.
If that road is the only access to the properties and one of the property owners needs work done on his home, that owner may grant access to the construction company so that the work can be completed.
However, one owner cannot, without the approval of the other two owners, lease the driveway out to a construction company to simply profit it off of. This is something that all 3 owners would need to decide on and agree to.
Your offer to pay for this answer is $18. That $18 is currently still in your account.
The only way that 1 owner would be able to lease the property out to the construction company would be if they were the sole owner of the road and the other two owners only had easements to access and use the road because it was the only way in and out of the property.
I understand that you paid $36. However, your account has an $18 credit (which is what you are offering to pay for this question). You technically don't pay for the answers here until you accept them. If you don't accept them, then you don't pay and the money stays in your justanswer.com account.
Whether a law firm takes a case like that on contingency is a decision that is entirely up to them. Typically, if you stand to recover a large sum of money, law firms would be willing to take the case on a contingency. Even if one law firm is not willing to do it, if you keep searching, you will find a law firm that would be.
Also, what you should be looking for is a real estate litigation attorney.
