My son filled our dog's food bin with anti-freeze that I had

My son filled our dog's food bin with anti-freeze that I had in my garage. I dumped the dog food beside our house with the intention of scooping it up to throw it away. A few days elapsed before I did this, during which time the neighbor's dog ate it and died. I did not intentionally poison their dog, and their dog came onto my property to eat the contaminated food. Can my neighbor sue me for the death of their dog? I live in Franklin, TN.

Was in auto accident over one month ago. I was taken to

Was in auto accident over one month ago. I was taken to hospital by ambulance (firemen said I had to), discharged that afternoon. Went to sign release of my vehicle to insurance co that same day. Accident Thursday, claims adjuster called giving me claim no following Tuesday. Have kept call log, tried every day to get him to call me again. He never did. Finally after over 2 1/2 weeks of not speaking to anyone, out of frustration, got hold of the dept supervisor. She at least got the ball rolling, the adjuster told her he couldn't get me & that I didn't release my car. My ins co has a 'no pay'tow yard. It was close to $1,500.00 in fees because of him, I should not have that as part of my claim, it was clearly his fauly. This morning I received a voicemail message telling me:The other party has retained an Atty, he needs to talk with me to get my side, call him back ASAP. So, I left many voicemail messages, & now I am unable to get the dept supervisor to call me. I haven't even seen the police report??? I JUST paid for my car in full. I kept the legal limits for the state of CA. I very concerned, and I need legal advice/expertise. Should I retain an atty as well?

A visitor (other family member's friend) wanted to ride one

A visitor (other family member's friend) wanted to ride one of my ATVs. She's in her early 40's and claimed she had vast experience riding her father's ATVs in Florida. I still gave her a tutorial on operating the machine (shifter, throttle, brakes, shut-off and start-up) and specifically told her to be careful. She and my wife took a ride on our ATVs. My wife was leading the way as demonstrating the safest route to take. The "visitor" took it upon herself to drive the ATV she was on in a careless manner, through a large mud pit. She struck something hard in the mud pit and it damaged the front rim causing the tire to go flat. Without taking her hand off the throttle, she went another 50+ feet into a tree and smashed the ATV front end causing significant damage. Please note that prior to the incident, the ATV was in "like new" condition with approx. 32 hours of run time and had "zero" defects that would have caused an accident. It was purely the her fault as a careless, over-confident operator. She did suffer some bumps and bruises as a result of hitting the tree and went to the ER to get checked out. She was not severely injured. Question: Can she be held responsible for the damages and repair costs to my ATV? My wife was present and was the only witness to the matter. She also has photos of the "visitor" driving carelessly through the mud pit just prior to the incident. Thank you!Greg W.Larkspur, Colorado

I was engaged to a man, that I quit my job and moved across country to be closer to him. This past Friday I found out he has been seeing another woman. She inboxed me on FB, with proof, and saying that I was never in a relationship with him. So to prove it, u Dee high duress, heartbreak, and very emotional, I sent a bunch of pics, not realizing that there was a naked pic of him in the bunch. She showed him, now he said he's going to press felony charges on me for sending her his pic without asking. What can/should I do?

I am covered by Medicare (71 yrs. old) My wife and I were in

I am covered by Medicare (71 yrs. old) My wife and I were in an auto accident on 6/23/2012. I was driving in a serve rain storm and lost control of the car. (single car accident) My wife died at the scene of the accident. I had an extended stay in the hospital and rehab center. I received $50,000 life insurance for the death of my wife from our automobile insurance co. Our auto insurance also paid $1000 to the hospital for my medical treatment. Medicare paid my medical expenses, but are now saying that I owe them $50,000 because the money I received for my wife's death is considered primary insurance before Medicare. Is this true?

My car was struck in a parking lot three years ago. The

My car was struck in a parking lot three years ago. The damage was over 750. The other party and I settled without insurance, amicably. I did not file an SR 1, didn't think I had to do so, since the other party did not want to file an insurance claim. Is there a statute of limitations for not filing an S R 1 form with the California DMV. I would like to sell my car and am concerned. The damage just involved a shallow dent and scratches made by a truck to wide to park in a parking space. I was not even in my car at the time.
