I was coming up he was coming down the blind curve. Cliff on my side. One lane road. I swerved to avoid hitting him and he never even hit the brakes. My insurance lapses by a few weeks due to covid related financial issues. I have court coming up to contest the traffic ticket they gave me which was... Read more »
I would add to the previous response a little. You did not say what your ticket was for. If the ticket was related to arguments revolving around why you think the Forest /Park Ranger ("Cop") should pay--then you will need to defend the ticket and prevail on the merits; otherwise, it will...Read more »
I agree with the previous response. Since it is unclear what you mean by "false documentation". I sincerely believe that you might find errors contained in almost any patient's file, such as a wrong birthdate, or height/weight, or someone's else name inserted. Nearly all of...Read more »
I took my six year old daughter to the dentist she was supposed to have two fillings and a coating of sealant put on her teeth. after the dental assistant brought my daughter out she had said that two of her teeth were loose and it falling out during the procedure on their own after getting home...

I hope that your daughter is doing well. Getting dental care at a young age is important and you want her to have a positive experience. This is a tough issue, because a child (as a patient) cannot legally consent to treatment. You, as the parent, are in control of what is consented to and what is...Read more »
Just a few brief thoughts for you with regard to your question. This is a civil case. it is in state or federal court? Perjury is exclusively a criminal charge and only the District Attorney/Federal Prosecutors can make those types of charges. Being able to show, within your civil case, that...Read more »
I am very sorry that you were injured. I hope that you receive proper treatment for both your arm and leg. The first step to a personal injury is to ensure that you take care of your health. You may have two possible claims. One for the intentional tort of assault/battery and one for negligence. It...Read more »
This is clearly not a very optimal situation. I hope that your friend and you recover fully from this accident. Nothing is more precious than people and their health. If your friend has car insurance, it is possible that they can make a claim for Personal Injury Protection (PIP) under their...Read more »
This question assumes that attorneys have their "own" county/state. They don't. Attorneys, if they find merit in a cause and choose to accept it, will file claims against governmental agencies to the extent they believe justice requires. There are often immunities that prevent...Read more »
I left the scene before cops arrived "Which is considered a "hit and run" the person who hit me is at fault and was not injured nor were any of her passengers. I have not filed a report, nor spoke with police about the matter. I am afraid, because I don't have insurance, I will... Read more »
You pose an interesting, and all too common set of issues. If you are in accident caused by someone's negligence, and do not have auto insurance, then you are entitled to recovery your monetary damages (for example, medical bills, lost wages, property loss). In other words, you cannot recover...Read more »
I was pulling in to a walmart parking lot and scratched another car. I then parked my car went over to the other car took a picture of the damage, then went back over to my car to get something to write with realized I didn't have anything so I went into the store to get paper and something to...

Parking lots, especially busy ones like Wal-Mart, frequently have accidents--especially scratches. When you caused damage to property, you are required to let the owner know. ORS 811.700 is a Class A Misdemeanor. If you hit a parked car, you are required to wait for (or, locate) the owner to...Read more »
First, I am very sorry for you being a victim of a hit and run. I know the frustration. Second, being 99% sure isn't the same as 100%. I assume that you have some type of evidence that supports your theory. Third, if you have a strong belief that it could be your neighbor's friend, you...Read more »
Oregon law does not allow insurers to dictate where a person needs to take their vehicle for repairs. They can make a recommendation. But, they are required to also provide notice through ORS 746.290 of ORS 746.280. In short, while insurance companies can recommend certain repair shops, they have...Read more »
Yes. That's the quick answer. It appears that you have a very easy claim with regard to liability. If someone runs through a red light and smashes into your car, it is hard to think of a situation where they are not at-fault. The fact that you are not insured means that you cannot recover for...Read more »
Suspended if I don’t make a Minimum payment if 1000 down and 100 a month. When I got in the accident I had just bought a car the night before from a personal buyer and had not had a chance to put insurance on it in the less the lab 24 hours after having it. I bought the car on 4/20/20 at 7pm, and... Read more »
First, the collection agency is collecting a debt. They are not the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and have no power to suspend your driving privilege. Second, you mentioned "grace" period. Did your insurance company deny coverage for this accident even though you just bought the car?...Read more »
Our cars breaks didn't react fast enough to stop and they t-boned the car on the side my son was sitting. Everyone is fine, besides for bumps and bruises. I'm wondering what to do beyond filing with insurance, which has already been done? And what to expect?
I am very sorry this accident happened to your family. I am glad everyone seems fine--except for bumps and bruises. It is difficult to tell from this question who might be at-fault. If the brakes were not working due to failure to fix them, knowing they were in need of repair, that could be an...Read more »
I was in an accident were liability was determined to be completely the other drivers fault. Both of us have the same insurance carrier (Progressive). The insurance company forced me to use my own PIP to pay my medical bills. I would have rather not used my own policy (PIP) and filed a third... Read more »
PIP is a great tool to ensure that everyone involved in an accident involving an insured motor vehicle has medical coverage and some funds for lost wages rather than having to wait for a year or more to get paid by the at-fault party. Lost wages don't start until after the 14th day of time...Read more »
The are likely a few reasons for this. Usually, though PIP is paid separately and reimbursed back to the other company. If you settle on your UIM policy (under insured/under insured), then your company will often waive PIP reimbursement, if your damages exceeded the policy limits of the at-fault...Read more »
