My friend's wife pushed me from their deck into their in-ground pool on Sunday at a party. Now my knee is damaged.
I could barely walk back to my car; saw a doctor tuesday; complete tear of the ACL + more (evil triad if that means anything to you.)
I'm married, have a 21 month old and work for myself (I make money when I'm mostly on the road, although I do some writing/consulting from home.) Minimum I'm off my feet for a month....yes, I'm consulting lawyers, but I'd like to keep the friendship, if possible. Help! [more inside]

During a windstorm, a tree fell on our detached garage last night and destroyed it (no cars were in it, but the roof is completely caved in and the walls are buckling). We live adjacent to a public high school, and the tree was/is on the school's property, not ours. I filed a claim with our homeowners insurance already and asked if I should call the town directly or if the insurance folks should do it. The call center person I spoke to recommended that I wait. The claims adjuster is supposed to call "before tomorrow evening." I'm feeling antsy. Should I just go ahead and call the town? Would I be letting myself in for any potential foul-ups in reimbursement (either from insurance or from the town)?

I had a roofer give me an estimate. He would like to make a hail damage claim against my homeowner's insurance. I didn't know that we had had a hailstorm this year... [more inside]

Applying for homeowner's insurance (with Geico in NY state), I was given a quote of $1761. At that point, they took my social security number, and came back and told me the premium would be $200 higher. They would not account for the difference....it was "take it or leave it". And I have a nearly perfect credit rating.

My parents had a house fire recently, and their insurance cut them a significant check to replace their belongings and rebuild the house. However, my deceased grandfather's name was on their policy, he had helped them buy it nearly twenty years ago, and the banks in town won't cash it without his signature. How is this even possible?

My wife and I are closing on a house in a week or so. The house is in the 120,000 range. Today, I started my search for homeowners insurance. My first quote from state farm was 1,500 a year. This is our first house, so we're in the dark. [MI] [more inside]
