Customer Question
A lawn care company...

A lawn care company sprayed chemicals on our lawn by mistake while we were on vacation. We have lived here 10 years and do not use chemicals at all. The instructions left on my doorstep indicate that my yard will lilely turn brown and need to be reseeded. I also have learned that to get rid of the chemicals, 4 inches of topsoil would need to be removed and replaced. I plan to call the company tomorrow tp

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

To see what they are willing to fix, but if they give me grief, I want to be prepared for the next step. I am in Kentucky.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No, we got home about 8pm Sunday evening, and the company was closed.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not off the top of my head. I'm angry!! And now my children cannot play in the yard, and we can't eat anything from our gardens. One of the chemicals has a 500+ day halflife in the soil..... grrr.

I'm so sorry to hear that. They have the legal responsibility to fix this and make it right. If they do not I think you would file to recover your cost of addressing it in small claims court.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
