we got a letter from a lawyer claiming that a women was bit by a dog while walking by our rental property. we spoke to our tenants that own the dog and they said that they walked past her on a street behind our house and she was never touched by the dog that was on a leash at the time, they were returning from a walk. there have been no previous issues with the tenants or the dog and they have been good renters for the past 18 months. there is no police report, but the city came to check on the health of the dog 2 weeks later. Are we liable?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: with the police? no. the women must have called the city at some point.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: the tenant said that no one else was on the street at the time so they have no witnesses

I'm a contractor & my general liability just due to a

I'm a contractor & my general liability just doubled due to a construction defect lawsuit that just settled after 3 years of litigation. I shopped around for a better premium price & I found one & signed up, but just this morning when I checked my email another agent came in with a much better premium & with the same high quality "A" rated company. My question is does the 3 day right to cancel also apply with regard to insurance matters? Please advise.

My question is a little! I am a British citizen with a card

My question is a little long! I am a British citizen with a green card living in the States. In 2009, whilst I was still living in the UK an ex girlfriend accused me of having sexual intercourse with her before the age of consent. (This accusation dated back to around 2001) The police thoroughly investigated the accusation and the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to bring charges. A couple of years later she started civil proceedings against the company I ran at the time, a theatre school, through which I met her. The company had liability insurance but the current owner refused to give up details of the insurance company and so the lawsuit went nowhere. I left the country and got married here in the States in 2014. Shortly after I left the country, having liquidated my assets in the UK, the same solicitors threatened proceedings agains me. This has dragged on for the last couple of years, however I heard nothing from them since last August until I received a letter this week stating that the case had been heard in court in the UK, I'd lost (mainly because I hadn't shown up) and I owe initial costs of £50,000 to the solicitors with the balance and damages to be agreed at a later date. This letter was sent unregistered from the UK.So my questions are, should I even respond to this letter? and what if anything can they do to chase the debt here, if indeed it is legitimate.

I am on the board of directors of a 501c3 non profit dog

I am on the board of directors of a 501c3 non profit dog rescue. We have no salaried personnel, strictly volunteer based. Decisions are made by the bod on a majority vote basis. I'm concerned about the liability I would incur as a bod member if the majority votes to adopt out a dog w/"issues',i.e., human aggression, dog to dog aggression, etc. Can I absolve myself from any liability if the rescue were to be sued, if I posted on our internal communications platform that I'm in total opposition of the bod majority vote. I could make it very clear that I'm posting my opposition to the vote because I think it constitues a danger to the community.
