Your Legal Questions Answered: Taxes on inherited house & insurance company recovering payments

FOX 26 Senior Legal Analyst Chris Tritico answers viewers' questions.

  1. I am 80 years old and on Social Security. My mother passed away six years ago and willed her house to me. It just sold. Do I have to pay taxes on what I receive? Do you know what percentage?
  2. My daughter filed a lawsuit against her surgeon that botched an elective procedure. Can the health insurance company she had through her employer recover payments they have made to her medical providers, if she should win the case?
