This is a community problem. And, yet, a very personal problem for you because it affects your safety, comfort, and even the investment that you have in your home. At the same time, homelessness is a very sensitive subject. People have to live someplace. The solution has to begin with the city. You...Read more »
Yes, you can file charges against anyone by contacting the police to make a report. However, making a false report and/or misleading the officer away from what really happened is a crime. In short, you cannot lie about what happened. The officer will ask questions that might make sense of the...Read more »
Last summer I was rear ended while stopped by a big truck with a solid steel bumper while I was in my 2003 Hyundai. Over the next few months I developed back pain and stiffness, along with sciatica. I started seeing a chiropractor after filing a claim with my insurer (who told me this was... Read more »

First, whether a person is insured or even licensed will not play into the determination of fault in terms of negligence. Although it could be a factor in determining degree of fault after it is established. A person who is likely to forgo the responsibilities to the public in getting a license...Read more »
I appreciate your question. My research of the case, reveals that Rogers v. Saylor, 306 Or. 267 (1988) has not been overruled or negatively treated on appeal, even though it has been cited in 37 subsequent cases.
The case discusses the the limitations on individual or governmental liability...Read more »
Your question likely poses many more questions. Being refused treatment, if done intentionally, can be much more than just negligent conduct. Also, there are many laws to protect people being denied insurance coverage. You may want to contact the state's insurance commissioner with regard to...Read more »
Dr refusing treatment and medication due to a missed urine test and discriminated against due to assuming drugs have been involved with no criminal background or past experiences this man will die soon without help
Thank you for the question. I hope that this man will get help soon to prevent a death. It seems like there must be much more to the story raised in the question. Medical doctors swear to an oath to "Primum non nocere" (First, do no harm). First, it has to be established that the doctor...Read more »
You mentioned that you were "assaulted" at work. You did not mentioned if it was someone in the company, or a third-person. For example, you work at a convenience store and it was robbed and you were assaulted by a customer. You need take the steps available to you through work, but going...Read more »
I am very sorry this happened to you. Especially this time of the year, with COVID-19 impacting much of our lives. I am going to assume that you were not at-fault in this accident. First the health of you and your child are the most important thing. Fortunately, a well-protected baby can do well in...Read more »
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... Read more »
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 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 »
