Customer Question
I was at a...

I was at a carwash last week. The carwash was under construction, I accidently pulled into the wrong lane. the attandant could have taken my money but instead told me to back up. It was a narrow lane that was coned off. Instead of directing me to back straight up she removed a cone indicating for me to take a hard turn and back up. While backing up I hit the booth. their insurance company will not pay anything. It was 1,000 in damage. do I have any kind of case in small claims court? several people did the exact same thing while I was there

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And can you tell me what's been officially filed?

Illinois I have not filed anything yet. i just got their response

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

With the police? no

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

Nope thats it

I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Are they suing you? Or you want to sue them?

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.

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.
