How to Avoid Public Storage Lawsuits
It’s not often that a person is sued for possession of public property, but this is exactly what’s been happening in my hometown, Washington. Yes, ‘public storage’ is the term used to describe the fact that a number of individuals have been charged with trespassing on a number of properties owned by the city or county of Seattle. I’ve read a lot of articles in the last few months regarding this issue, and there seems to be a lot of confusion as to exactly what the law actually says regarding the actions taken by these defendants.
So, what is the problem? Why are public storage properties being attacked in a lawsuit that isn’t really theirs? Is there something sinister or wrong about the way that property was treated? What about the fact that the government didn’t really own those properties anyway? These are just some of the questions that I’m sure you’re asking yourself right now.
The fact of the matter is that ‘public storage’ is actually an umbrella term that encompasses a variety of things that have to do with the ownership of property, including land, buildings and personal belongings. There are also various other laws that are involved when it comes to ownership of property in general, including property taxes. Therefore, the lawsuits themselves are a little more complicated than that.
What is the first thing that you should do if you happen to be sued by someone in the future for any type of property that has been stored in a public facility? I’ve outlined two steps below that you can take if you want to avoid being a victim of a ‘public storage’ lawsuit.
Step One: Take the case to the courts, because there are ‘public storage’ lawsuits that are based on the premise that the owner of the property has been negligent when it comes to protecting the security of their property. If you do this, you will be able to get your property back. In many cases, this will include the entire contents of the property. This will likely mean that your possessions may be confiscated and sold to pay for the costs that have been incurred as a result of the negligence.
Step Two: In some instances, you may be able to get a court order that will have a certain amount of time put on the notice of the lawsuit. The reason for this is that if the defendant knows that they won’t be able to show up to court, they’ll want to take the notice down a bit so that they have the opportunity to change their mind.
You need to take the time to understand what a public storage lawsuit is all about before going ahead with one. If you don’t understand why your property has been targeted, it is important to speak with a lawyer who specializes in such issues.
Storage lawsuits have been a major problem in Washington State for many years now, and there is no reason why they shouldn’t be in the future. As long as the courts continue to allow such suits to be filed, the issue may never go away.
There may be a lot of ‘innocent people’ that have been damaged by this type of lawsuit over the years. If this is the case, then you should speak with a lawyer about the possibility of filing an appeal so that you can try to get your property back. After all, you may not have been a part of the negligence that brought about the storage, but you may still be eligible to be awarded money.
However, if you have been a victim of negligence, then you may well be at fault for being sued. Therefore, it is important that you speak with a lawyer before you proceed any further with this process. Even if you haven’t caused anything wrong, it doesn’t mean that you can’t get sued anyway.
If you have a case, you can still do something about it. All it takes is a lawyer, and you can get your assets restored. and the case dismissed.
